"Retinol is a powerful firming active ingredient. It stimulates cell regeneration, smooths the skin texture, reduces signs of aging and fights effectively against pigmentary tasks and imperfections. Nevertheless, it should be used with caution. Photosensitizing, it can cause skin irritation following exposure to the sun. It is thus preferable to use it in the evening, before bedtime, and to apply sun protection the following morning. Moreover, even if this active ingredient is now regulated in cosmetic products, I do not recommend it for sensitive and reactive skin. Indeed, its keratolytic activity can dry out the epidermis and cause significant irritation. However, note that this active ingredient requires time for the skin to adapt; if slight redness appears, this does not necessarily require stopping its use but only spacing out the applications to every other night, or even every third night."
Opinions on the Wrinkles and Fine Lines Serum.
Formulated with 0.3% retinol, this serum prevents skin sagging by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Below you will find some of our users' opinions about it.

Don't forget to apply a broad spectrum sun protection before any exposure to UV rays. Note: Its use is not recommended for sensitive and atopic skin.
