    Thanks for the video explaining the retinol family-good info but it’s raised another question of two. Having bought recently Judith Williams Retinol3 face serum no time in her demos did she mention using a sun factor with the product. Do I really need a sun factor? And, as the serum is a morning and evening application, does this make it more important to use protection? If so does the SPF go on first or the retinol serum as both products say to apply them first, before anything else? Hope you can help. Btw, the new photo of you in the blue outfit is lovely.
