Worthwhile product

I've been using Zo products for some time as a friend had gifted them to me. Found this alternative that was more in my price range as I was looking for a comparable product to what I'd been using. So far, very happy with the results. I'm in my 50's with age spots being my most troublesome issue. This product has definitely been helping with this issue. It is easy to apply, lightweight and although higher retinol may be an issue for some, my skin seems to be starting to rejuvenate. Definitely softer, smoother and my spots seem to be fading. I'll be using this again

Fabulous - thanks for sharing. You could try to add brightalive to your regimen to get even better results for pigmentation.

Good!

I've used 1% retinol from other brands before, so I knew what to expect. However, this one seems a little stronger because I still had some peeling after first couple of times.

Yes it is a good retinol and is possibly stronger than other products, so go slow use a little at a time and can alternate days to start
Enjoy your beautiful product
