Yes yes at night. I read up loads on retin-a before I started using it. I've been using it for only 2 weeks, and anybody with light acne, I'd definitely recommend it.
Anyway, the HA seems really powerful, so I'm gonna stick to using it under my cicaplast for the moment, can always build it up. Also it stings a tiny bit guess cos I'm not too used to the retin-a yet.
I got it from a UK based company called SR-skincare (online). I think it's quite a new company and they've changed name already. I think what they do is use the latest ingredients, but make it more affordable.
I had originally ordered the pure HA (which in the meantime I found out is not that effective) and was sent the one I've listed instead. That's why I've posted to ask about ingredients on here.
I can't find that particular serum I've received on the website and I've e-mailed to ask what's going on. I assume they are just renewing their range quite constantly. Waiting for reply. (But anyway it's working well, considering my entry level knowledge of it all)
Please have a look and let me know what you think.
Can you explain a bit more about gluconolactone and 'acid mantle of the skin' please. When I did my googling, most info I found about it was food related.
One more thing. I've quickly googled the 2 serums you listed. I've read people raving about SkinCeuticals products before, especially the Vitamin C serum. But then I found out it's very tricky to maintain the level of vitamins in the bottle, cos every time you open it, it oxidises a bit and loses strength. I've then seen people on
youtube making their own vitamin c serum, but a tiny bit each time. Personally I haven't used Vit C on my skin yet, cos I think it would all be a bit too much at once.
Vitamin B5 helps to heal the skin right? That's why I chose Cicaplast Baume B5 as my moisturiser as opposed to a serum. So far I'm very happy with it.
