As usual Paula's Choice continues to beautifully formulate product after product par excellence! This is a terrific retinol product and my main retinol product that I use consistently each night or which I alternate with my prescription Retin-A. I also have my mother onto it who also has seen visible results from the use of this product, particularly interestingly around her eyes and hairline, the product believe it or not has increased her brow hair growth and hair line! Amazing. As with most product from Paula's Choice the formula is filled with state of the art science backed and proven cosmeceutical ingredients like skin identical ingredients, anti-irritants, anti-inflammatories and various plant extracts and beneficial soothing ingredients alongside it's star ingredient Retinol, perfect for night time repair on those fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and pores. This product can be used both morning and night but I prefer to reserve it's use for the evening under my regular night cream. Nice sleek packaging with an easy to dispense pump system, the texture is a lightweight lotion texture, not like your traditional syrupy serums, it has a yellow appearance most probably due to the amount of anti-oxidants in the formula. It is ofcourse fragrance free yet interestingly smells like green coffee. I highly recommend this product for all those newbies keen to start on retinol products but don't know where to start, ofcourse retinol is to be used carefully and smartly, you begin by using it every other day working up to every night to build up your tolerance as not everyone can tolerate retinol. For those who cannot tolerate retinol at all, you will have a negative experience as with all potent retinol products and will then need to experiment with lesser amount of retinol or other vitamin a derivatives and its cousins like retinyl palmitate, Retinaldehyde etc. Thanks again Paula's Choice! I can always rely on your excellent formulas!
