This is not one I'd get stuck on trying to pronounce too much, but it's definitely one that you want to be familiar with! Niacinamide and Retinol are also super important ingredients too when it comes to fighting the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and dullness. Each one of these 3 ingredients plays an important role, but when combined they can create a one-of-a kind effectiveness that's difficult to find elsewhere!
For starters, let's take a look at what hexylresorcinol actually is: it's an organic compound that offers up antiseptic and anaesthetic properties, normally being marketed in skincare products for small infections of the skin, anti-aging products, and it's even utilized in throat lozenges.
As for Niacinamide, it's a water-soluble vitamin that belongs to the "b-group" of vitamins, but it does NOT contain the pharmacoloigical and toxic effects that niacin can cause. The reason for this, is that Niacinamide is a conversion of Niacin and this process eliminates those effects as a result. It has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties, aid in healing of acne, effective at evening/lightening skin tone, and even a reduction in skin cancer [new non-melanoma skin cancer diagnosis].
Retinol is probably one that you've heard of or you might have even used a product that contained this powerful form of Vitamin A. Although it does occur naturally in the human body, its created through a lab process called hydrolysis at low temps and an oxygen-free environment. This little guy will fight for skin when it comes to many issues, but it's most commonly associated with its anti-aging abilities.
Put ALL 3 of these potent ingredients together and what you get is a powerful and effective skincare treatment ;) Each one of these compounds by themselves can be a positive factor, but joining forces it where the magic really happens! Make sure to check out The Beauty Closet's recommended product containing ALL 3 of these awesome compounds below:
THE BEAUTY CLOSET RECOMMENDS:
Intensive Brightening Treatment
.5% pure retinol night
This is hands-down the BEST skin corrective treatment that I've ran across yet! I've tried quite a few out on the market and this one made a difference after the first night of application and it's gotten better with each additional usage! I was absolutely shocked to see the quick results and even more surprised that it has continued. Similar product attempts that other brands have made did not even come close to this product's effectiveness and quality :)
I didn't experience what I expected to be- at least some slight skin irritation and yet I had no issues at all. This product is great at providing excellent luminosity as well; you don't always get that either with products that attempt to brighten and improve skin discoloration. The product uses the Omnisome delivery system to ensure that all of these powerful ingredients are penetrated deeply into the skin and you will notice the difference as I believe it's really what sets the product apart from others!
There are a couple of drawbacks that I wanted to address though: firstly, this is highly recommended as a night treatment I would strongly advise that you follow these directions as the ingredients contained in this product can cause sun sensitivity. Secondly, the pricing might be high for many and I can definitely understand that as I myself don't always have tons of extra cash to spend on my beauty products! I will say this would be considered an investment at a bit over $100, however it's a wise investment that you get real results with.
You are also getting a 1 oz. supply and it doesn't take a great bit of product for application, meaning that the product should last for quite a while too! I would highly recommend this product to those with all skin types and ages- even sensitive skin and those who don't necessarily have anti-aging concerns [it's perfect for achieving a beautiful and glowing complexion!].
