It is usually said that prevention is better than cure. I’m in my 20s’ (ehhh almost 30) and I decided it was time for me to start including a few anti-aging products in my skincare routine. Having heard about serums and retinol based serums in general I added Bleu Beaute Retinol Serum to my pamper skin routine.
The product claims to “High potency anti-aging moisturizing serum with Retinol 2.5% (Vitamin A), Botanical Hyaluronic Acid and Phospholipids. Soften and heal your skin, boost collagen and elastin production, reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
Apply a small amount to face, neck and décolleté. Allow it to dry. For best results use morning and night.”

My Experience with Bleu Beaute Retinol Serum
I like giving products a good chance before I make up my mind. I started using this serum when my face was in a stable state – no breakouts, no random bumps popping up, just my usual bazillion acne scars. The first day I tried Bleu Beaute Retinol Serum I loved the way my skin instantly felt – the serum got absorbed into my skin easily, it had a very mild fragrance that didn’t irritate my nose. The pump packaging was easy to use; the serum also nourished my skin well. The first impression was good. I was happy and went to sleep peaceful. All of this turned around the next day when I noticed a couple of bumps on my face. I decided to give this a serum the benefit of the doubt and used it again. The day after I noticed more bumps and tiny pimples. I decided to stop using the serum and in a week my skin returned to normal. One week passed and I gave this serum one last shot, and shocker it was just the serum that broke me out. I had more bumps and pimples on my face.
Overall, this product seemed to not fit my sensitive acne prone skin in anyway. Anyone who has a similar skin type needs to be weary and use this product with caution. Have you used any retinol-based products? Do let yes know in the comments below.
