    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.

    Best Exfoliant

    I have sensitive skin/acne and I've been using exfoliating serums for years, and this one is so good. I use it twice a week: after two consecutive nights of the RR retinol I use this Pore + Wrinkle Perfecting Serum the third night, repeat in that order the next three nights, and then a gentle moisturizing/anti-aging serum or mask the seventh night. This stuff usually burns or tingles in places and some red patches will show up for a few minutes, but that all goes away soon after. It removes any slight flakiness from the retinol, and my skin is so so smooth the next morning! I don't get bumps a few days later either, like I've experienced with stronger acids or peels. I even pat just a tiny amount under my eyes once a week to help with fine lines and make my eye cream more effective, and the skin around my eyes is SUPER sensitive but this doesn't irritate it if I don't overuse it. I've used it for clogged pores on my shoulders and upper arms too. Really excellent product!

    Got Rid of those Bumps!

    At age 65 I was dealing with cystic bumps under my skin. It went on for over a year. My dermatologist said it was probably hormonal. I tried the Perfecting Serum and voila! Within a week the bumps were gone and have not returned for three months. Apparently all the anti-aging oils and creams had clogged my pores. I also use the sheer Moisture Lotion now and and am thrilled!

    This has changed my skin

    I have been dealing with large pores my whole life and now I get to deal with wrinkles. This product has changed my skin. It is so much brighter and my pores are barely visible. Love it!!
