Gentle but effective

I bought this on a whim and am happy I did! I started using it on my neck and chest and it has helped fade my freckles/sun spots and overall made the skin look much smoother and brighter. Ordering my second bottle!

Thank you so much for this review!

Perfect for this old(er) woman!

After years of visiting dermatologists and medical estheticians who all swore by their prescribed products, which turned my face into a lumpy, flaky biscuit, I gave this all-trans retinol a try and will never go back. Had cystic acne well into my 30s and continued with breakouts into my early 60s. Tons of research later, I discovered that the prescribed products contain filler ingredients which would clog my skin. The many types of moisturizers used to combat the flakiness added to my clogged skin woes. My 65-year old face is now smooth, clear and flake-free. A 19-year-old coworker asked about my skin-care routine because she hopes her skin looks as good as mine at 65. Huh? Never heard that before! (FYI—I’ve used GOW products exclusively since 2018.)

Since my skin was already acclimated to tretinoin/retinol, I started with the 1% strength eased into using it 5-6 times a week. After a couple of hours, I follow up with a moisturizer (GOW Saffron Rose Majikal Facial Lotion). Works great for me!

We're so glad this serum is a winner for you! thank you :)

So far so good

I have been looking for a retinol that will not break me out, not be over drying and that is safe for fungal acne. So far it is going great, I haven't noticed a reduction of fine lines or wrinkles yet but I haven't been using it long enough, I have faith though. I am going to order a bigger bottle. I am so excited to have discover GOW and there simple, effective ingredient lists.

Thank you, Lea :-) Our serum is definitely less invasive than many companies offer. It is always wonderful to hear the success for our customers. You are correct as the wait time will show results in lessening the fine lines and wrinkles. Best of luck! ~Markey
