Retinol is one of the wonder ingredients in the skin care world. With all the great things it can do, it pays to ensure it can reach its potential. I was sent the Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil to try and I put it to work hoping it would boost my retinol products into overdrive.
Retinol products does much for skin – it treats acne, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. It even reduces the size of your pores. While some people don’t tolerate retinol well, my skin loves it. Retinol actually stimulates collagen production, so the results over time are fantastic.
Skincare L de L Cosmetics® Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil (SRP $26.00 – 1 Fl. Oz. / 30 mL) was launched last June and it’s a very interesting product. It’s a facial oil that preps skin for retinol treatments. I love facial oils, which sound like they would be greasy and pore-clogging but are in fact great moisturizers. Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is a very light oil with African Marula Oil and Sea Buckhorn’s Omega 7 & 9 Fatty Acids. It moisturizes skin and delivers nutrients that fight wrinkles and increase elasticity. The ingredients include nine rich essential oils plus Vitamins A, C and Argan Oil (Vitamin E). There is a lot of antioxidant power in this oil.
Properly prepped skin helps treatment serums do their job even more effectively and the Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is made to prepare skin for retinol treatments. While the Skincare L de L Cosmetics® line is a retinol-based anti-aging skin care line, I like how the facial oil is recommended for use before any retinol treatment. You can also mix a few drops of this oil into your moisturizer or foundation for a little extra luminosity.
Retinol Anti-Aging Facial Oil is available at ULTA Beauty stores, Harmon Face Values at select Bed Bath Beyond stores, as well as online at www.retinoltreatment.com. – Lisa
