If you haven’t tried retinol in cream form, you’re seriously missing out! At least that’s what I feel after experiencing this anti ageing night cream enriched with retinol. This baby has made my night skincare routine so much simpler and when I wake up in the morning, I see actual results in the mirror. I have always struggled with a myriad of skin concerns like acne, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and most recently dark circles and fine lines, so much so that I couldn’t decide which of them to treat first!
That was until I tried retinol and realised it could do wonders for all my skin concerns at one go. Still, retinol serums aren’t always a good idea to apply on active acne, and so I decided to try this retinol cream instead. Surprise-surprise! It worked way better than what I had expected. Here’s why I think this cream is going to have a permanent spot in my skincare routine.
The St. Botanica Retinol Advanced Anti Aging Night Cream is formulated to free your skin from ageing and make your skin feel plump and moisturised while treating it with the active ingredient retinol. This cream also contains hyaluronic acid and Vitamins C, E, B3, and B5 that ensure the skin is thoroughly moisturised and nourished. Argan oil, jojoba oil and licorice extract in this formula heal skin with their natural properties and therefore even gives it a skin soothing feeling from within. This anti-ageing night cream is suitable for all skin types and it effectively firms up skin and gets rid of dullness, uneven skin tone, dark spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, all in one go!
Usually retinol does feel dry on the skin, but this cream is just the opposite. It delivers plumping moisture that gets completely absorbed by the skin before you can even finish saying the word retinol. When I applied it, it also had a tightening effect that made my skin look more taut and youthful. It does not even leave a trace of greasiness behind – just super soft and silky skin. Even when I applied it during a breakout at night, I found it to be soothing and luxuriously hydrating. By sunrise, my skin felt plump and radiant and blemishes seemed visibly less prominent.
