The details

This CeraVe Resurfacing Retinol Serum is recognized by the Canadian Dermatology Association — and it's non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and paraben-free.

This game-changing serum will help reduce the appearance of scars, marks and pores. And it'll leave your skin feeling super smooth.

It combines three essential ceramides to keep your skin's natural barrier in good shape. Plus, it contains encapsulated retinol to help reduce signs of aging. The hyaluronic acid will keep your skin hydrated, and the niacinamide will soothe it.

With consistent use, this lightweight serum will leave you with an even complexion and a refined glow — say goodbye to unwanted texture and irregular skin tones.

Apply it at night, but when you wake up, make sure to wear sunscreen since the retinol makes your skin more sensitive.

What people are saying

This serum boasts more than 3,700 reviews on Amazon, with an average 4.5-star rating. Shoppers say it's a "very good serum" and "a must" in their routine.

One reviewer said they only need "one pump" for their face, adding that "it spreads well," too. They also said the gel-like texture "feels amazing on the skin."

"My face has a glow, and fine lines have seemed to regress," said another customer. They added, "I love that the scent is barely detectable."

Another shopper said they "highly recommend" the serum and added, "It's effective yet gentle, providing noticeable improvements in skin texture and tone."

However, many people did state that the bottle feels empty and that it takes "a million pumps to get it to come out." Some also say that "it does burn a bit for really sensitive skin," which is why you should start slowly by applying a little bit at a time, a few times a week.

The verdict

If you're struggling with an uneven complexion, texture or fine lines and don't use a retinol product, it's time to consider adding one to your routine. Hey, even if you've got one but it's nothing special, or perhaps it's too pricey, give this affordable CeraVe one a shot.

For the sensitive skin crowd, remember to take things slow and start with small amounts to avoid any irritation.
