I like this cream for my night skin care routine

This retinol cream is very moisturizing and I like their packaging, it’s hygiene, easy to press out the cream & looking cute


All the ingredients you could want

This is the best night cream! Jojoba oil, Peptides, ceramides, antioxidants, retinol, etc. it's incredible to find a product that has all of that in a package that protects it from air. If you have dry/combo skin you will not be disappointed. I even use this after 0.01% tretinoin and it helps maintain my moisture barrier.

Lovely Cream

This is one of my favorite nighttime creams. I layer it over my Paula's Choice toner after cleansing and my skin always looks great in the morning. This cream as a smooth texture and a little goes a long way - one pump covers my entire face. I bought this bottle about 2 months ago and it's still going strong.

Great bottle, great formula

I love love love the pump of this bottle. Love the product, too. I use this as my neck and chest cream at night. I wake up still feeling moisturized. I have only been using for a week or two, so not yet sure about long term results. But I love that it has retinol.

I keep coming back for more

I’m probably on my 4 bottle of this-I love it so much! Very light texture, no smell, non-greasy, absorbs quickly, and best of all it works! This product does what the label says it is supposed to do. My skin texture and coloring has improved all without the irritation of more potent retinol products. I use it at night on face, neck, décolleté, and top of hands. And, I think this product works just as well as products that are 2and 3 times more expensive.
