    Changed my skin!

    This changed my skin for the better. I can definitely say this has helped my skin more than anything. My pores are cleared up and my texture is almost not existent. I definitely make sure I always have a backup of this.

    Amazing for Sensitive Skin

    I always thought my skin was too sensitive for chemical exfoliants, but I knew I had to try because I had acne scarring and physical exfoliation wasn't cutting it. I bought this, along with the Skin Correcting Serum to alternate with (for my skin type). After using this for a few months, my scarring is going away and my skin tone is the most even it's ever been, without any burns, redness or irritation along the way. I highly recommend this product.

    Update on previous review

    It’s now been a couple of days since that initial reaction and my skin has taken a wrong turn. I have flaky skin occurring in the initial areas (above lip, around mouth and down to my chin) but now it’s up around my eye area too. My forehead and chin area both have little bumps and pimples occurring. The skin on the edges of lips are unbelievably dry and peeling to the point of being painful. My entire chin area and around my eyes now is itchy. If you have sensitive skin at all do not get this product.

    Renée Rouleau Skin Care

    Hi Rachel! We're so sorry that the Pore + Wrinkle Perfecting Serum didn't work out. :( Here is a link to our return policy and instructions > https://www.reneerouleau.com/pages/customer-care-return-policy

    While this exfoliating serum should be gentle enough for most sensitive skin types, finding the right blend of acids that work best for you may take time. For more information on exfoliating acids and how best to introduce them into a routine, check out this blog by Renée! > https://blog.reneerouleau.com/exfoliating-acids-faq/

    Additionally, sensitivity can be a sign of a damaged moisture barrier. In this case, it's best to use reparative ingredients until the barrier is completely healed! To find out if your moisture barrier is damaged and how to fix it, I'd suggest this blog post > https://blog.reneerouleau.com/moisture-barrier/

    Should you need further assistance, our in-house estheticians are happy to help! You can email questions and concerns to hello@reneerouleau.com or chat with us using the pink chat button on the bottom right of the webpage!

    Works but be careful if you have sensitive skin

    I got the basic package of mint cleanser, this serum and the moisturizer. The morning after I first used all three I could see that my skin already seemed brighter. I took a break with using this product though because it did seem like my skin was a little sensitive around my mouth and chin from it. On day three I did use it again at night and when I woke up my skin was clearly irritated. It was red, flaky/dry and itchy from the skin above my lip, to about an inch away from the edges of my mouth and down to my chin. The rest of my face looked great though and despite the reaction even my hormonal breakouts in those areas went down too. The product works but if you have sensitive skin I would start with using this once every week. Then maybe two to three times a week if your skin starts building up a tolerance.
