Got wrinkles? Get retinol. NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair

I have a birthday coming up and while I love birthdays I don’t love the wrinkles that seem to come with every one the past few years. My favorite wrinkle-fighting ingredient is retinol, so I jumped at the chance to test the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair ($130).          pr sampleNia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair
This moisturizing serum combines retinol with niacin, which actually helps speed up the process of retinol treating skin while also preventing any irritation. It also has sodium hyaluronate for major hydration, which plumps up skin and gives immediate gratification against wrinkles.Nia 24 Intensive Retinol RepairNia 24 Intensive Retinol Repair
  • Continuous, deep delivery of Pro-Niacin® strengthens the skin barrier.
  • Pro-Niacin® is clinically shown to visibly improve skin tone, texture and hyperpigmentation.
  • Retinol increases cell turnover and collagen to improve texture, tone, smoothness, firmness.
  • Botanical Complex of Enteromorpha Compressa Extract (seaweed) and Caesalpinia Spinosa Gumactive promote a stronger dermal matrix that minimizes wrinkles.
  • Hexapeptide stimulates high quality collagen with peptides to fight wrinkles.
  • Sodium Hyaluronate is a potent humectant that hydrates skin and locks in moisture.

Nia 24 Intensive Retinol RepairI find the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair to be gentle and very effective. The packaging is perfect for keeping the efficacy of the retinol and while it increases cell turnover it doesn’t leave skin dry or irritated. This is about as perfect as a retinol product gets.

If your birthday count is now also competing with your wrinkle count, I highly recommend you try a retinol product – and the NIA24 Intensive Retinol Repair is a fantastic way to go.  – Lisa
