Skin Care Review: retin-a micro
by Kim H., Portlan, OR US
pores reduced in size, skin was smoother, general tightening effect.
lots of peeling, some redness especially around the mouth and eyes
I really like retin-a micro. I had used retin-a years ago and although I liked the effects, felt that it was a bit too harsh for my skin. Retin-a micro seems to "ease" me into the peeling stage a bit more gently but provides all of the wonderful results such as a substantial reduction in pore size, "cleaner" pores - reduction in blackheads, and a general luminosity to the skin.
Recently, I began incorporating retin-a with CP serum and have been even more impressed with the results. My skin is definitely tighter and smoother and the CP serum seems to kind of cut back on the amount of peeling that the retin-a micro would normally produce. It seems to "calm" the inflammation that's normally associated with tretinoin.
I highly recommend this but would caution that it does produce photosensitivity.
