The #StratiaRewind is new and unopened but will be my next anti-aging product. My current one is The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane. I've been using it for about a month and a half so I feel like I can finally give some opinions on it. . ⚬Doesn't cause any irritation/redness/etc on my skin ⚬Haven't really noticed any anti-aging effects but honestly I'm probably too young to see any. I don't know where to look for them? The only wrinkles I have are under my eyes and I don't put the retinoid there. 😅 I'm mostly doing preventative anti-aging here, ya know? I'm 25 and I know it'll be coming soon. ⚬The Squalane in this formula doesn't sink in as well as some others I've used and can feel heavy but it's so moisturizing on my dry face. I ❤ squalane. Oily skinned folks might not love this as much. ⚬Although the Deciem site says "This product is not a treatment for acne" I can say I have seen a noticeable drop in pimple frequency/severity after incorporating this into my night routine. I've reduced it to bi-nightly use now. Since it's not an acne treatment, YMMV. ⚬For the price I would definitely repurchase (my clumsy ass accidentally spilled half the bottle so I'm glad it's under $10 😅). I wanna try the 5% Granactive Retinoid next before I RP though. ________________ #TheOrdinary#retinoid#antiaging#essence#Stratia#squalane#photoaging#skincareobsessed#skincarelover#antiagingserum#geode#skincareaddict#theordinarygranactiveretinoid
Rewind is on my list to try so please review it once you've used it for a while. As for TO 2% retinoid I had exactly the same experience as you. No irritation but no results? I didn't RP but I did by their 0.5% retinol to try next.
