cassie977 Posted April 22, 2015 Report Share Posted April 22, 2015 So on the advise of the beautiful ladies on this forum I've just applied my very first pea size amount of retinol I purchased the Skinstitut 0.025% retinol; which smells surprisingly good, from www.skincarestore.com.au because they always have 40% off (use code SS40) and I also got the multi active mist because it sounded cool and I wanted free postage haha. With my purchase I also got a sample of the ASAP soothing gel. My skin is very sensitive, acne prone and somewhat dry but then can also be slightly oily on my forehead sometimes so I am not sure how my skin will cope with the retinol but I will keep you updated for anyone else who has sensitive skin and is wondering what will happen. I'm hoping the soothing gel may help calm my skin after applying the retinol and stop it from drying out as it is described as an "anti-inflammatory" moisturiser and the active mist will add a little more hydration when needed. I'm hoping to wake up in the morning with amazing clear skin with nothing but my freckles left on it but I think I might be kidding myself! A lot of you have said that you went through a period of redness/peeling so knowing my skin, it will probably just burn off but from the amazing results I've read, I'm willing to risk it. I will update in the morning as to how my skin has reacted and hopefully it's good news Pip and Denise 123 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
