Staging my own age intervention: Jan Marini Retinol Plus Face Cream

Pretty much every time I look in the mirror I think, “I definitely need an age intervention.” Well, Jan Marini has come to the rescue sending the Age Intervention Retinol Plus Face Cream ($65), which dispatches skin directly into rehab.

The major goals for my skin intervention include tackling fine lines, improving texture, and reducing pore size. Jan Marini’s Age Intervention Retinol Plus Face Cream is the perfect product for the job. Retinol is a fantastic antioxidant that basically creates healthy skin cells. The issue with many retinol products is the packaging. If the jar or tube exposes the product to air or sun, the retinol becomes inert. So if you are investing in any retinol skin care make sure it’s not in a jar or a clear container. Retinol that is packaged correctly will give you dramatic results in wrinkle reduction, skin tone and elasticity.

The Age Intervention Retinol Plus Face Cream is perfectly packaged so the retinol retains its efficacy. Jan Marini says it has “the most aggressive levels of stabilized all-trans-retinol with advanced peptides and antioxidants” which means quick results. I think that is what makes this a truly great product – it is so much more than retinol. The superhero ingredients like antioxidants fight free radicals, safflower oil helps repair skins fatty acids, and peptides rebuild collagen.

After a few weeks, the change in skin’s appearance including fine lines, texture, and pores is definitely noticeable. It also has lots of hydrating ingredients, so this face cream moisturizes while it fights fine lines and smooths skin texture. This thin, creamy lotion is fragrance-free and sinks in easily.

The Age Intervention Retinol Plus Face Cream is meant to be applied twice a week until your skin gets used to the very powerful and effective ingredients. You simply can’t get a more effective retinol product and I highly recommend this. You can find Jan Marini products on their online site, at Dermstore.com, and at various spas and dermatologist offices.  – Lisa

    Do you know the % of retinol in this serum? It’s listed in the middle of the ingredient deck; I’d have expected it to be much higher.
