      Good for redness

      I had a bit redness from older acne breakouts (cystic acne). The redness got visible less after one week, and after a few weeks the redness is nearly gone.
      On acute breakouts I couldn’t see any benefit (but I think this product is not made for acute acne)

      Love it!

      I really like the Cerimide / Retinol Serum so far! It would be nice if it smelled nicer but I am more interested in the effectiveness of it. :)

      great formula

      This is a wonderful product. I have introduced this into my routine and have not had any negative side effects at all and I do feel a difference in the texture of my skin. Thank you!

      Loving it!!

      My skin feels so smooth and hydrated. I've had intense scarring due to acne and it's lessened the redness and helped the texture of my skin. Loving this serum so much!

      Age: 25 to 39 years old
      Skin Type: Dry

      As someone that has dry sensitive skin and a huge hater of retinol because I've tried almost every product. From CeraVe, to Urban Skin Rx that literally destroyed my skin, I was skeptical about trying another retinol product because they really just irritate my skin even though I support them with barrier strengthening products.

      I decided to give this a try and this is by hands down the best retinol serum. I think it's the formula but it's gentle and the results are smoother, brighter, firmer, supple skin that just radiates and glows.

      A staple because this is just your skins goodness.

      Zero Irritation!
