Retinol is one of the most studied, proven, and derm-recommended ingredients for those concerned with everything from acne to wrinkles. However, traditional retinol is known to be irritating. Not Press Restart. creamy Gentle Retinol Serum is specifically formulated for sensitive skin and first-time retinol users. No need to worry about redness or dryness with this duo of microencapsulated retinol, which sends the active ingredient deep down into skin sans surface irritation, and natural retinol alternatives, arophira and bakuchiol. We've also added antioxidants and anti-inflammatories for good measure. It's a non-scary and effective nightly treatment that reforms skin texture (softening lines and wrinkles) and refines skin tone (evening out discoloration) while supporting healthy skin functions and keeping pores clear.
Note: Since the retinol serum’s green tint comes from chlorophyll, a natural ingredient that oxygenates the skin, color intensity can vary from batch to batch. This is totally normal and does not affect the efficacy of the product.
HOW: Smooth 2 pumps into clean, almost-dry skin. Let it sink in for one minute before your next skincare move.
WHERE: Face and neck. Bonus points for chest. Be careful when applying to the eye area to avoid getting product in your eyes.
WHEN: Every PM after cleansing. Use alone or between lighter serums and moisturizer.
GOOD TO KNOW: Retinol speeds up skin cell turnover. Protect those fresh, new skin cells by wearing sunscreen daily.
Use within 12 months once opened.
