Hi All!

Vitamin A Housekeeping:

All of the brands featured responded to my questionnaire and I am very grateful. Not all disclosed the % of their vitamin A ingredients so where possible I have alluded to the placement on the inci list on the packaging.

All of these products will get an individual review on the blog (if they are not already featured). I am working on them solidly, so bear with.

Do not forget your SPF. Seek your physician’s advice if pregnant or breastfeeding.

None of the retinol series of videos is sponsored, but affiliate links are used.
