Too strong for sensitive skin

The serum burnt my skin so badly, it’s still recovering almost 3 months later.

I do not recommend use on sensitive skin.


Been using this for almost 2 weeks and can definitely see massive improvement in my skin texture. Can create peeling however, so make sure to moisturise well. Will continue to use.


great product, can I use it for stretch marks.?

Hi Maluleke,
Yes you can

Safe to use daily?

Is this safe to use daily, Is it safe for the skin barrier? What are the ingredients and how different is it from Retinol. Bottom line is that I love the product but would appreciate your answer on the above.

Hi Sanelisiwe, great question! Retinyl palmitate is much weaker and gentler than retinol, so it is safe to use daily. I still recommend using it at night, and using SPF during the day though, just to ensure no UV sensitivity.
It boosts collagen production in the skin, and is great for tackling all the signs of aging.
The ingredients are retinyl palmitate with tocopherol (Vitamin E) in oil.


Amazing results, saw result within few days
