Hey Beauty Lovers! Three weeks ago I have written a review on La Roche-Posay Redermic [R], which is a Retinol treatment. To read the full review where I also explain how Retinol works click here! So at this stage I have been using Retinol for just over two months. Just before Christmas I started using Redermic [R], soon after my skin started to have a light breakout, here and there a small spot would appear. Then about two weeks ago it got even worse, my faced was covered in spots in most random places. But I didn't want to stop using Retinol as it is a common side-effect especially on oily skin which tends to have blocked pores. Retinol kind of pulls all the impurities to the surface, so you have to be patient to get through this "breakout" stage and just hang in there it will get better!
And about a week ago the breakouts have finally stopped! Now even when I have a facial which has mud base in it that always used to break me out as it also pulls impurities out, my skin stays clear next day. This must be the sign that Retinol has got rid of the deep sitting blocked pores. After 8-9 weeks of using Redermic [R] my skin is super smooth and radiant looking. All of my skincare serums and moisturisers and facials seem to work much better now that my skin is nice and clear. Also my pigment mark which is sun damage that I mentioned in the previous review has faded slightly. I'm now using it every other day alternating it with my Avene Cleanance K Cream-gel, which keeps my acne under control.
I would highly recommend to have a Retinol treatment as it works on a deeper level and makes all the other skincare a lot more effective! Although Redermic [R] is super powerful it is also very gentle, designed to be suitable for all skin types, even for those that are sensitive!
