Overall, it's a highly effective ingredient for younger-looking skin. If you are new to using retinol, it's important to mention that it's best to gradually build up use this ingredient in your routine and monitor your skin's response. Start with a lower percentage of retinol, if your skin responds well - you can try higher percentages.
