Retin-A: Day 28 (June 10, 2015)

I haven’t documented anything since May 19 because there haven’t really been any changes.  I continued to use the tretinoin every night.  The only night I did not use it was May 30, because I ended up in the hospital with appendicitis, and had to have emergency surgery after my appendix ruptured- fun!  Needless to say, I did not bring the Retin-A with me to the emergency room…lol.

No changes except for moisturizer being varied- I just wasn’t feeling the 3Lab. I used several different ones, included Dr. Brandt XYY Cream, Omorovicza Rejuvenating Night Cream, and Omorovicza Instant Plumping Cream.  I used several different sunblocks, including Eve Lom SPF 50, Shiseido Tinted SPF 43, Ole Henriksen Protect the Truth SPF 50, Tarteguard SPF 30, and It Cosmetics CC Cream SPF 50. I started using several masks, including Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud, Radical Beauty Instant Revitalizing Mask, Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask, and Eve Lom Hydrating Mask.


Very slight peeling in areas around mouth and near nostrils. Even “slighter” peeling on brow bones. Lines around eyes slightly more pronounced, but not as much as during the first few days of use.  Much less sensitivity.
