Retin-A: Day 29 (June 11, 2015)

No changes in cleansing and skincare routine. I decided to switch to Retin-A 0.05% cream.  I was planning on still using 0.025% in my eye area, but the cream spewed out of the 0.05% tube upon opening, so I used the excess and went ahead and put it around my eye area. I may end up regretting that, but we shall see!

Photos were taken after washing face, but prior to using Retin-A. I washed with Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser and my Clarisonic, and used Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu exfoliating powder in the evening. I waited about 45 minutes after washing to use Retin-A. I did not use a mask, or any other product as I want to see the actual effect of the stronger cream.  I only felt a slight tingling in the chin area approximately 20 minutes after application.
