    Has been great for my skin!

    I have been using this serum every night for the past couple weeks. I am always nervous about trying new skin products on my face because I tend to break out easily but this has been great for me! After about a week and a half, I noticed my complexion seemed more even and the pores that used to bother me on my chin, nose, and forehead are far less noticeable. I am using this serum in conjunction with Dr. Brandt's DNA line which was a splurge but I'm really happy with the improvements so far!

    Gentle but effective

    I really like the 2% Retinol complex. It is gentle but yet effective. I use it in the evening on my face, neck and chest. I am already seeing results, with the fine lines, and age spots. My skin seems to glow in the morning.

    OK so far

    I purchased this about 2 weeks ago and have been using it every night. I am not sure about the results just yet, I am giving it 4 stars because I have not been using it very long, but I have possibly noticed a reduction in my forehead lines, and it seemed to help some breakouts on my chin. Other than that, no real miracles so far. I plan to continue using the entire bottle and give it a chance to see what it can really do for my skin.

    Awesome Product

    This is a great serum. I can definitely see a reference when after using it. I have forehead lines and I make fave expressions and I can see the lines getting smaller and not as noticeable.

    Effective product

    I purchased Dr Brandt 2% retinol serum two weeks ago and have used it every other night since. I have experienced no irritation. I have noticed that my complexion has become more consistent and my pores appear to be less noticable, and more refined. The serum applies very nicely, and absorbs quickly. It has a very pleasant citrus fragrance. I have not noticed a great reduction in the apperence of fine lines, but based on the results of the past two weeks I am confident this is an effective product.
