The 0.5% retinol is encapsulated in a lightweight gel type formula which helps to sooth and protect the skin while allowing the retinol to use it's rejuvenating powers. Retinol helps to reduce spots, lines, wrinkles, roughness and blotchiness. It increases cellular turnoever, keeping the surface of the face baby smooth and younger looking. Retinol keeps skin firm by decreasing collagen loss, and it prevents future damage while acting as an antioxidant.
I've been using this for about a month. I'm normally great at keeping moisturized by I tend to slack off in the exfoliating and rejuvenating area. The FutureDerm Time Release Retinol 0.5% has been a great way for me to get back on board with keeping my skin soft and rejuvenated. I use it just a couple of nights a week, sometimes more, and about twenty minutes or so later, I apply my serums that I feel like I can't live without. You can use any of your other skincare on top of the FutureDerm Retinol as long as they don't contain any acids.
The instructions for use are right on the bottle.
There is also an ingredient list.
What I really love about this product is that it is gentle while being effective. You can work up to using it every day but you'll never burn your skin as long as you aren't combining similar products. I have to exfoliate more because the product is working. That's not any big deal; it's something I've been neglecting the last couple of years anyway, so it's a good boost to get me more motivated to do what's right for my skin.
I love the soothing feel and the quick absorption of the product. I also love that I can use my serums and other creams every night like I'm used to.
