Holo Barrier Repair Gel Cream with 0.2% Retinol

product review positives
I am a sucker for Retinol – give me everything Retinol and my skin will love them. It is such a game-changing ingredient so when the brand decided to release this, I was excited. It has a very rich & dense gel-cream consistency but is still lightweight enough to not cause any pore-clogging issues, personally. Due to such consistency, it spreads on the skin like butter – beautifully creating a dewy canvas on the skin, without any tackiness or stickiness. It is scentless, so you need not worry about any potential irritants like fragrance or essential oils. What I noticed upon first application is its fairly decent hydrating and soothing effect – usually, Retinol-based products are rarely able to perform such so I am pretty impressed. While it is not revolutionary, I still appreciate it because now, I do not have to add up extra hydrating & soothing products to replenish my skin during any Retinol-routine. The resurfacing progress – due to the inclusion of Retinol – is actually pretty slow and I did give up, but I extend my testing period, and I must say I am happy! I noticed how my skin has become a lot smoother, softer, and brighter – no more uneven skin tone or rough texture. I experienced no purging from this product which means this is gentle enough – yet still effective. This cream is also super nourishing, repairing, and moisturizing which contributes a lot in ensuring the skin barrier is not compromised throughout this whole resurfacing progress. The price is justifiable with everything it has to offer, so this is indeed a holy grail!
product review negatives
Complaints no more. Perfect, personally. Overall, it is proved that a Retinol-based product can be gentle but still effective which means a lot of people can now reap the benefits of it without worrying about any adverse reactions, especially those who are about to start exploring this ingredient or with sensitive skin. Recommended to all skin types, especially dry skin – this is such an all-rounder product.
