I never had the pleasure of testing Skinceuticals until a few weeks ago. This is a great brand based on my experience from the two products I have been using. The site is super informative and their products are of a high caliber. On their website everything is detailed and explained thoroughly, they even offer am/pm regimens in case you are anything like me and sort of all over the place with products.
The Eye Cream boasts the ability to combat symptoms such as puffiness, sagging skin, and dark circles — all specific to the delicate eye area. Check, check, check! I need help with all of the above. I use this liberally at night so it can really soak in as I sleep. It absorbs quickly without any greasy or oily residue. A few weeks isnt really enough time to tell how well it works but I like everything about it- the fact that it doesn’t have a scent, quickly sinks into my skin, does not bother my eyes, all A++++! I will continue to use this as long as I have it.
I was wishing and praying for a Retinol Cream and this one came into my life. It’s a 0.5 retinol so it’s not overwhelming to the skin. I know that Retinol’s can make skin become red and peel. Luckily that reaction hasn’t taken place. I have a few annoying fine lines that I will do anything to get rid of so I am especially anxious to see how well the Retinol performs, I love it so far. All you need is a pea sized dab to rub into your skin. No additional moisturizer is needed. Aside from applying to the fine lines around my mouth, I use it on my oily t-zone and I swear this has already cleared up some over-sized pores. (remember my self diagnosed Porexia?)
Here’s what the Skinceuticals site says about their 0.5 Retinol Cream:
Retinol products help stimulate cell regeneration and build collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots from both photo- and intrinsic- aging.
When I was at Sephora last time, the helpful salesperson told me it takes 30 days for a product to start working. I know I’m going to be using this every single of those 30 days and looking for results. So far, so good!
