Why, How Often, & Which Retinol Level to Choose:
There Are 3 Levels:
- Lower % Levels .01%-.25% : These products contain that least amount of Retinol but that doesn't mean they're not effective! What's great about these products, is that those with this low a level can allow for daily usage and no irritation- even those with sensitive skin :)
- Moderate % Levels .5%-.75% : Banish loss of firmness, uneven skin tone, deeper wrinkles and bumps or flaw that have proven difficult! At medium-strength formulas, these Retinol-containing products step it up a bit and can be applied less often [i.e. every other night, to prevent/reduce irritation].
- High % Levels 1%-2% : Achieve the best & most dramatic results with products containing these levels of Retinol. Get quick results too that you won't get with the lower-level containing products. These are recommended for those wanting to address the most serious of anti-aging concerns and for those who have been using Retinol products for at least a recommended 3 months.
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
True Results Retinol Active Skincare Retinol Night Cream 1%
A maximum-strength PM night cream that really packs a punch, stopping the signs of aging dead in their tracks :) If you want results, this is THE product for you! Diminish fine lines and wrinkles with a formula that allows for continued use that brings even more improved results. I've seen reduced pore size, a more even skin tone, improved texture, and reduced lines on my forehead & around the mouth.
This one is for all skin types, however I would recommend that you start with an every other day or every couple of days application to start out with, if you have ultra-sensitive skin. This approach will prevent irritation and can always be adjusted- especially if you have already been using Retinol products for some time.
True Results Retinol Active Skincare Retinol Eye Serum .25%
I'd been on the hunt for a Retinol product that I could actually apply around my eyes that wasn't too strong and didn't cause irritation on my super sensitive skin. I have already been using Retinol-containing products for some time, but I'd not been able to find one that was working well for me on sensitive areas such as underneath and around my eyes or right above my lips. True Results knows quality and this awesome .25% Retinol Eye Serum not only makes the area around my eyes smooth, rejuvenated, and firm, but the fine lines around my eyes have greatly improved well.
This fantastic product will also improve dark circles and improve the skin's texture around & underneath the eyes too! If you're new to the Retinol scene, this is an excellent product to start with as well :) Comes in an easy-to-use pump action bottle that stores the product without allowing air to constantly get to it with a tight-fitting lid.
