My Opinion:

Been using this during the driest month of the winter and was really amazed by the initial results. You all know that I'm on retin A and that during the driest winter days, my skin peels and flakes.... no amount of makeup would actually make me look normal...

Started using this for about a week and there was no more peeling, my skin was actually radiant, but on the second week black heads started to emerged.... With continuous use of retin a for over 3 months, I shouldn't have any blackheads, so I've concluded that this serum to be the cause....

I've really liked this product and I'm not really complaining, because from my previous experience with facial oils, I've noticed that they all causes black or white heads on me. I think this is a personal issue and it does not have to do with the product. I just wish that facial oils will work for me because they are all so convenient, just one squirt and it would be enough for my face.... no more serums or face creams, etc.
