i had been using it for quite some time. It is not supposed to have any stinging sensation on the 1ST application


The stinging sensation is what I read that most users will experience. Maybe my face is oily that why I don't experience it. Will continue to use 0.025% to let my face accomodate before switching to higher concentration.

Most user will only experience that stinging feeling after 1 week or so of application....

$16 as compares to $1.5k is peanut but got to throw in a lots of patience.

I experience light stinging on the fourth application but no sign of peeling yet.

Retin-A 0.05% has given me some fairly result and I am moving to Retin- A Micro 0.1%.

I have managed to DIY my own 15% Vitamin C + E + Ferulic Acid serum after some reading and ordered the ingredients from all over the world. First batch is not very successful as there are gritty, likely from the undissovled Ferulic Acid but still useable though. It absords immediately upon applying to the skin but it's too early to tell the result.

Beside the Vitamin C serum, I will be DIYing kojic + glycolic solution for daily exfoliation and whitening; Hyaluronic Acid + sea kelp + DMAE Bitartrate for daily hydration and lifting; and ordered some DIY glycolic peel for weekly exfoliation and peeling when all the ingredients arrive.

I can say I look better now after doing double eyelids, epi, rhino and alar. Will be doing my chin soon.

I've also overcome MPB by using the 3 Bigs after half a year and still continue on for maintenance.

And now I am into better skin complexion and slimming cum exercise to achieve better toned body, hopefully within half a year.
