A new Retinal Night Cream for your well-aging routine. Targets pigmentation & the first signs of aging.

It’s NOT the same as Retinol! However BOTH are derivatives of Vitamin A.
Retinol takes 2 conversions to become Retinoic Acid, while Retinal (also known as retinaldehyde) only takes one step. Which also means it can be more irritating than Retinol.
I have been using Retinols consistently for over a year with great success. This is my first Retinal experience.
0.03% Retinal, 1% Bakuchiol, Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Beta Glucan, Vitamin E, Fig Extract, Ceramide NP, Macadamia Seed Oil
It’s neon yellow, which can be slightly alarming but it does not stain or add color to the skin.
Consistency is beautiful. The moisturizer is very spreadable & easy to use. Layers without any issues. It adds mid-weight moisture.

I am in my mid-30s, am acne prone & have combo skin. Dealing with the first signs of aging and pigmentation (acne marks, sun damage).
I am sharing my observations as I review it over the weeks:
patch test to ensure no reaction 👍🏼
started using a few nights a week.
End of week: mild purging begins.
increase usage to every other night.
End of Week: mild breakouts stopped & began to heal. Noticed recent acne marks on right cheek are lightened slightly (see photo)

skin is slightly dryer than usual, added another layer of moisturizer to my routine.
I absolutely adore this cream. I will continue to use this & definitely plan to purchase another bottle.
