I am very curious about using retinol (not retin-a).
I know retinol is weaker than retin-a and has harder time giving desired effects to the skin,
but I am not sure if my doctor would prescribe retin-a in the first place.
I have used .30 retinol from Make Up Artist Choice in the past and did not have any problem.
Skin felt a bit more sensitive and that was it. However, I dropped it because I thought it was not beneficial to my skin.
I am thinking to use higher concentration retinol again this time to accelerate skin turnover.
I do have acne prone skin, but it is decently under control. I do get acne here and there, but not big ones.
Main problem with my skin is that I get acne in the neck area still, probably because of shaving infection.
