Looking for the best retinol

I just finished using the Sunday Riley right now but I don’t think it worked very well.  What’s everyone’s favorite right now for acne prone skin and minimizing dark spots?


Re: Looking for the best retinol

The Kate Somerville +Retinol Vita C Power Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL is one of my faves, @oliviatritsis. It is fairly strong (4%), though, so depending on if you were using Luna (0.5%) or A+ (6%), I'd ramp up using a lower % first. Because it has Vitamin C, it is also great for brightening and minimizing dark spots. As always, start slow, once a week and ramp up. The moisturizer of the same line might be a gentler option as well. @oliviatritsis
