Ask any aesthetician or dermatologist and they’ll tell you to use retinoids or retinol. This is a daunting prospect for people (like me) who get both redness and irritation when they try to use retinol. But this serum is made with a new patented retinol said to work twice as fast as typical retinol. At the same time, it’s also less irritating. It’s bolstered with soothing primrose and antioxidant-charged astaxanthin, and for me, it’s gentle enough to use every night without causing any trouble. My skin is noticeably smoother, clearer, and more radiant, allowing me to pare my skin routine down to just three steps at night: Cleanse, smooth on this serum, and then take a minute to appreciate the glow in front of the mirror before bed.
