Only used once but it was a good experience. Face was warm but not bad. Flushed in the morning but gone by the afternoon. Light scent that I could handle. Unscented would be better. Fingers crossed I can keep using it. Looks very promising.
I was originally reluctant to use as I have reacted badly to other retinol treatments. I am amazed how gentle the serum is.
As an ardent (daily) exfoliator who has never used retinol I thought it best to back off on the exfoliation and slowly add the retinol into my skincare regime. So far so good! I have gradually increased usage to twice a week with no breakouts, flakiness, scaling or irritation so I'd call that a good response. This week I plan to increase to three times per week and I hope for the best. I'll report back soon but as a first retinol experience I am more than pleased. If you are hesitant to try retinol I'd say 'give this product a go'!
Great product! A light texture, non-greasy with a delicate odor. Good for sensitive skin.
This retinol is stellar! I started using it October 2019 and it’s amazing the difference in my skin!! I will not live without this product. Thank You Alchimie
I wasn't expecting much from a retinol product with 0.75% retinol, as I have previously used 1% and 5% products. I have been so pleasantly surprised with this product as I can see the results, but have had no side effects overall. I would definitely recommend this retinol serum to anyone who has sensitive skin, and didn't want to risk side effects from retinol, but wanted the benefit.
Really gentle yet effective.
So far this has been great. my skin definitely broke out in the beginning as my skin was purging all the toxins but after 2 weeks the acne cleared up and my skin is now extremely clear. Excited to see how it will continue to improve
If you are shopping for a retinol, look no further. Alchimie's 48-hour time release formula delivers a punch without irritating my skin. It's quite astonishing. The consistency and scent are great ... but can we talk about the results? When your aesthetician notices a difference in the firmness of your skin and the reduction of wrinkles, you know you landed on a stellar product!
