Retinol, Vitamin A, Retin-A, whatever you want to call it, is the fountain of youth I've been searching for.
My dermatologist told me that every woman over the age of 30 should incorporate some form of it in her beauty routine. It's a necessity.
I listened and used the prescription form she recommended, but I couldn't go in public because my skin was peeling off in gross sheets like a reptile. No joke.
I gave up and thought it just wasn't compatible with my skin.
My poor, aging, late 30s skin. It was screaming for help and I was avoiding the one thing it really needed.
wasting the entire afternoon on surfing the Sephora site, I came across this face lift in a bottle.
I was very hesitant to try it because I was afraid my entire face would peel off, but the reviews convinced me that this was different, so I held my breath, crossed my fingers, and gave it a try.
Thank goodness I did. What a difference it's made!
This miracle serum includes Vitamins E and C (the essentials in youthful skin) and an micro-encapsulated form of Retinol 1.5% (the encapsulation prevents it from making you peel). It's a silky formula that goes on smooth like butter.
It only takes a few drops a night. My bottle is about halfway gone after 2 months. Not bad at $65 a bottle.
You can wear it under your night time moisturizer or by itself. It's not picky. I alternate between Nerium AD and Egyptian Magic Cream. I like to shake it up and keep my skin on its toes.
The biggest change it's made is around my eyes and my laugh lines. The wrinkles are much less noticeable. My skin feels smoother and my pores are smaller.
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because my flats came in and they're PERFECTION! I can't wait to wear them in Chicago! They're so cute and so comfy and go with everything. My feet are thankful.
