Love!

I tried the one with 5% in squalene and it is very oily and I do not feel it is being absorbed as it stays heavy on my skin and so it stays in my fridge full bottle and since I bough more than one they have stayed in their boxes in in a big box somewhere. I bought almost $500 with of products from this company when they had their 23% sale in Nov (an advantage when you work and don't have to depend on your husband for money) and this and the Buffet is are my go to.

Even better than their squalene retinoid

I used their retinoid in squalene for almost a year, and it worked pretty well and never made me break out, although sometimes it dried out my skin. This emulsion isn't irritating at all, and I feel like it absorbs better and feels even nicer and lighter on my skin than the squalene. I hope they release an emulsion with a higher retinoid content if it'd show better results for clear skin and elasticity- I'm not worried about irritation with this formula, so I'd definitely give it a try!

an excellent helper for a girl in her thirties :))

I'm a fan of retinols and retinoids. I tried Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane, but I was bothered by the overly oily consistency. I'm not comfortable with it. This special emulsion version is excellent. It has a light and pleasant scent and absorbs into my skin very quickly. I use it every other night before I go to bed and my skin feels really beautifully hydrated and smooth. It works very well on fine lines but you have to be very patient and consistent. I noticed the first visible results after about a month, maybe a month and a half. I highly recommend introducing this serum into your regular routine.

know how to use with oily skin

knowing that my skin is way too oily (front, nose, chin), I use the matting-moisturizing cremes during the day (with niacinamide + zinc) and this nice retinol product during the night. I did not want to cap my skin too much (to avoid pimples) and chose this lighter emulsion. It works as expected and I'm very satisfied :-)

Love this

Been using this product every other night for a few months and love that I see results without skin irritation. The instructions are to refrigerate after opening…what happens if you don’t?

Wish it was a bit stronger, but otherwise love it!

This is the first retinoid product I've used and actually stuck to. The texture is great, so easy to use and not at all oily. It hasn't suddenly given me perfect skin, of course, but it's certainly made a difference. I was starting to get a frown line between my brows (I'm 31) but using this seems to have stopped that in its tracks! However, I could probably move up to a stronger version now. I wonder if I can mix some of the 5% in squalane into this? Anyway, Deciem, please make a 5% version! I'd buy it!

Day time

Love this product..I saw a difference after a few weeks. I actually used it during the day when working from home. Putting it on at bed time didn't show results. During the day sitting down doing nothing it worked wonders.

The one thing that saved me

It's been almost ten years since I started having acne, I've tried anything and everything, but the only thing that's made a drastic difference is this retinol! After an initial purging period of 3-5 weeks, i started having the best skin I've ever had! I recommend this product to almost anyone, it's light and it works! Love it

Visibile results with regular use

I bought it at the end of 2020 and started to use it discontinuously for the first months of 2021: to. be honest I wasn't impressed with the color, nor the consistency nor the fragrance (but I appreciated the "fragranceless" of it because my skin is dry and prone to irritation/redness). A few months ago I started to apply it regularly every night and the results are definitely visible: before that I was starting to show the first fine lines and a few dry patches (thanks rosacea). Several people who had not seen me for a few months told me that my skin never looked better and I have to agree: it looks younger, plumpier, just better. I am definitely buying this again.

The best retinol serum

Best retinol serum in a very nice watery (not oily at all) texture. It sinks into your skin fast and easily, leaving no residues at all.
