What it is: An advanced-strength retinoid serum that delivers a six-and-a-half percent solution of stabilized retinoid blends and botanical retinol-alternative extracts into the skin.
Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily
Skincare Concerns: Fine Lines and Wrinkles, Dark Spots, and Dullness and Uneven Texture
- Retinol Ester: Helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and promotes clearer skin without the drawbacks of retinol.
- CoQ10: May improve the appearance of aging or UV-exposed skin for a healthier-looking, balanced complexion.
- Hawaiian White Honey: Pro-skin humectant, rich in phytonutrients.
Ingredient Callouts: Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances. This product is also cruelty-free and gluten-free.
What Else You Need to Know: A+ High-Dose Retinoid Serum combines a five percent retinoid ester blend, one percent liposomal-encapsulated retinol blend, and a half percent blue green algae with natural retinoid-alternative activity. This serum fights the signs of aging and improves the look of congested and UV-damaged skin. Encapsulated CoQ10 helps to improve the appearance of aging or damaged skin, while Hawaiian white honey, bisabolol, cactus extract, and ginger balance and soothe the skin for a calmer, more even-toned complexion.
New to retinoids? Start using A+ two nights a week, and then take two nights off. Gradually work your way up to every other night, and then every night.
