- Acne Prone
This is the only RR product I've bought that I really haven't like. It's scent is clean, fresh diapers. It doesn't last long and is quickly overcome by RR lotion, but it's not the way I want to start my morning. It's both too drying and not exfoliating enough for my skin, though I was testing something outside of my recommended skin type.
I much prefer the Skin Correcting serum with targeted use of the BHA Clarifying serum.

Hey Sam! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!
Like all of our acid serums, we recommend using the Ultra Gentle Smoothing Serum at night after cleansing and toning since sun sensitivity can increase with usage due to the AHA's. (This also means you'll want to be diligent with your sunscreen application!) As the name implies, this is our gentlest acid serum, formulated for sensitive skin types without acne concerns. If you want an alternative to the BHA Clarifying Serum, check out the Pore + Wrinkle Perfecting Serum! Renée also suggests exfoliating no more than five times a week. So ideally, you would use an exfoliating acid serum like Ultra Gentle or BHA Clarifying Serum three nights a week, then once a week, you would use an exfoliating Peel and Scrub, like the Triple Berry Besties!

Skin Correcting Serum is a hydrating acne-preventative serum that can be used in the morning and on nights you aren't exfoliating! This blog explains serum cycling more in-depth and includes a helpful list of ingredients that should never be combined >
