Retinol (eye roll)

I’m retinol intolerant – I try & I try but I cannot get over that retinol hump (prescription or store bought) that most people get over around the 2- 4 week mark.  I just remain slightly red, flaky & irritated and earlier this year I just said F it.  Turns out, there are a lot of others like me…

THOUGH I can tolerate this particular retinol pad packed with moisturizing ferulic acid very well (and yes, I obvi layered moisturizer over my retinol in the past).  Enter one of my holy grail products – the Denis Gross Ferulic Retinol Recovery Peel – I do it once or twice a week for exfoliation & glow.  Seriously, the affect it has on my forehead and t-zone is nothing short of spectacular.

You truly wake up from your slumber with fine lines and pores minimized, skin tone even (ta-ta redness) & texture so smooth.  Sephora will give you a sample if you want to check how your skin tolerates!  These convenient little pads are especially key to remove all that gross product build-up during these humid summer months like sunblock & sweat.
