No BS? Ha, there's no retinol to be found in this retinol night cream! At $50 a bottle, it was nothing more than an overpriced moisturizer and my skin knew it. The texture and packaging was nice, but prefer to pay for skincare. So FULL of bs.

Cleansers - Pacifica - Rose Kombucha Flower Powered Face Wash

Picked up on sale after running out of my usual foaming cleanser. A quick review of the ingredients and price made the decision an easy one. Prefer more "foaming", but it seemed to cleanse alright without over-drying. The packaging was just fine, but nothing special.

Having used .5% retinol since my late twenties, buying 2% retinoid at this price felt like a steal! The serum-like consistency and rapid absorption peaked my expectations.
