Retinol Cream 2.5%



I may only be in my 30's but I hear all the time how I look more like I'm in my early 20's. Heck, I still get carded which is beyond flattering to me. 

I've had a pretty intensive nightly routine since I was 19 years old which has always included moisturizer and anti aging creams. I know you are wondering why anyone would think to use this kind of stuff before they even turn 20, but I am a firm believer that taking care of your skin early, before it loses elasticity will give lasting results as you get into your 30's, 40's and beyond.

Among the things in my nightly routine is retinol cream. 

Retinol helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates the collagen which makes your skin firmer. So essentially, it repairs skin and keeps it looking young and fresh! Retinol is said to also reduce dark areas of your skin such as dark circles, age spots, and acne scars. 

I really love the bottle this comes in for some reason. The pump is large enough that it's easy to dispense just the right amount and it's a large enough supply, that even if you apply morning and night (as I do), it will last for quite some time because a little goes a long way. There's no odor to it which is a plus because I hate the way a lot of organic creams and serums smell, and you can easily layer other serums over or under this and not feel like everything is caked on your skin. It's very light and absorbs quickly.
