I’ve just bought a Retinol A cream to fade pigmentation that’s developed on my face due to my slack approach to using sun block. The instructions don’t say anything about using it in conjunction with a daily moisturiser or night cream. To start application is only recommended 1/2 a week until the skin becomes accustomed to it so it’s not an immediate problem. But you are supposed to build up daily usage.
Does anyone use a similar product? Do you apply it before or after other creams? Is it best to use in the morning or night?
Hi i have been using it for about a year, i will say my wrinkles seem the same, but a sun spot i had on my cheak has almost gone, i do also use vitc from The ordinary and Alfa h an glycolic lotion. all started at the same time so dont realy know which one is doing the work, but will carry on with all three hopeing wrinkles are reduced too.
do you mean the retinol A? if so i started from the ordinary two retinols that they dont do any more but there are others now, take a look on the web site, i also had one from Ebay a gel one 1% it was a bit to strong. now i am using two different ones, one from the ordinary 1% in sqauline on my face, and one from spain .0.5 less strong for my chest and neck as it more sensitive there.
It’s called Brightenx and it’s by Zo Medical. It has 0.5% retinol. I’m hoping that it’ll fade the hyper pigmentation, I don’t have much expectations around wrinkle but if there’s any help on that front I’ll take it.
