Trust me when I say that I've tried a lot of skin care products out there - from fancy and expensive age-defying serums to moisturizers that claim optimal results for all skin types. I've seen the ebb and flow of skin care, as if it did any good to my crow's feet and laugh lines (of course, no changes still). I was about to give up on my search and settle for my usual skin care product until I came across SkinCeuticals Retinol Cream. If you want quality ingredients for your skin, then you've got the real deal here. Read on to find out more about this revolutionary product!

What it contains?
Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, has garnered attention in the beauty industry nowadays with the multiple benefits it has to offer - it has potent anti-oxidant properties which help maintain your skin's natural composition by fighting off the aging effects of free-radicals. It also help in the formation of collagen, which is essential to the overall framework of your skin. This wonderful ingredient is found in every tube of SkinCeuticals Retinol Cream, and mind you, it really works!
How it works?
SkinCeuticals Retinol Cream works at a cellular level, helping stimulate cell regeneration and collagen formation. Since it is formulated with high concentrations of retinol, it really seeps deeply into the different layers of the skin.

This product is also helpful if you have sun-damaged and/or problematic skin. It can also be used as advanced treatment for pre-conditioned skin as extra measure.
Directions for use
Using SkinCeuticals Retinol Cream is a breeze! If you're using retinol-containing products for the first time, it is wise to use it twice a week first, increasing in frequency every week as you continue to use it. After 3-4 weeks, you should be using it every night (as tolerated). Squeeze out just a pea-sized amount, and nothing more. Apply it onto thoroughly cleansed skin in the evening. For best results, wait at least 30 minutes before applying other products the same time you're using SkinCeuticals Retinol Cream.

If you have sensitive skin, it is wise to consult your dermatologist first before using any product that contains retinol or Vitamin A derivatives. Also, it is recommended to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen while using SkinCeuticals Retinol Cream or any other retinol-containing product.
Since I was new to retinol products, I followed the directions which indicated that I should use it twice a week. After a week, I noticed slight changes in the texture and feel of my skin. It definitely felt a bit smoother and softer than usual (not that I'm complaining), and I did notice that my skin was glowing, but it was still too early to find out if it was due to the new product. It really felt great that I was kind of seeing some results, and I decided to continue using it. Over the next few weeks, my frequency of use increased, and eventually I was using it every night. It really made a difference for me - I was literally feeling that as I applied the product, some years were shed off my face. Just after 3-4 weeks of using, I noticed great improvement on the appearance of my laugh lines and crow's feet. It really works!
