serum? feels like oil
Purchased

I use retinol daily on my face to minimize prior sun damage and toughen up my skin; I was tempted to try this product for summer as most serums are lighter when applied (in summer I use an additional sunscreen of 50-70spf on my face) and the price point is quite reasonable. Obviously I didn't take the time to read others' reviews; this product seems very oily when applied; I'm too busy to wait and time how long it takes to sink in, it's definitely quite a while. So now I'm not using it on my face but on my forearms which are also sun-damaged (a dermatologist suggested using retinol there as well); kind of expensive for arms.
