Amazing product

This is my first retinol product I’ve used. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin since using it. My skin feels more clear, smooth and just has a nice general glow. I will continue to purchase!

Fantastic product

As a first time retinol user with sensitive skin I decided to give this a go.
Loved it! My skin texture is improved and I’ve had no issues at all.

Love the results

I bought my first bottle of this product about four months ago when I decided to stop using facial scrubs. My skin has been going through some changes due to peri menopause and I was finding areas on my cheeks were getting red, scaly and itchy.

This product is lovely. My skin is radiant, smooth and feels so good! It’s so gentle too. I’m about to purchase another bottle.

Lovely gentle resurfacing serum

I was a little apprehensive the first time I tried the Alt resurfacing serum after months of a perioral dermatitis flare up. The soothing duo helped me get the inflammation under control but I was left with pigmentation and differences in texture. The Alt serum was very gentle and didn’t irritate my skin. After the first 2 weeks, using it twice a week, I was very pleased to notice brighter and more even skin tone. I’m looking forward to trying the Retinol RX.

Too irritating for me

I really wanted to love this product as I love the soothing moisturiser but unfortunately it was too harsh for my skin. I have weird skin though, and since coming off hormonal birth control my skin now reacts to azelaic acid. I only wish they made a version without the azelaic acid for super sensitive skin like mine.
