Retinol Reform Serum๐Ÿ”ฎ is a skin-transforming, anti-aging and collagen-boosting all-in-one!๐Ÿ’ฏ

Retinol; the superstar holy grail of skin transformations! This multi-use and multi-purpose skin care ingredient has been making waves in the beauty industry for decades. It can be used to treat and fight acne, help protect from sun damage, and support anti-aging benefits.ย With claims like that, itโ€™s no wonder retinol has held its reign in the beauty industry for so long. Hollywood esthetician to the celebrities Shani Darden, created her own line of skin loving beauty products featuring her own formulation of a retinol: the Retinol Reform Serum.

As a derivative of vitamin A, retinol is the over-the-counter ingredient found in many anti-aging skin products. It was first researched in 1983 to treat skin conditions such as anti-aging and acne and has since been recommended by dermatologists to treat various types of skin conditions.

With her result-oriented approach to skin care, Shani Darden wanted to create a better and effective alternative to harsh retinoids that normally cause sensitivity and irritation to the skin. The Retinol Reform Serum was created with retinyl palmitate, a retinol derivative that is great for beginners and sensitive skin types. This form of retinol is also known to contain more antioxidant benefits than other formulations. The encapsulated retinol allows for a gentler, slow releasing formula. The serum also contains a lactic acid to help exfoliate the dead skin cells being turned over from the retinol, as well as an apple fruit extract called pyrus malus, which provides antioxidant defense against sun damage and other environmental pollution factors.

This retinol serum includes multiple anti-aging benefits including a reduced appearance in fine lines and wrinkles, increased collagen production and skin cell turnover, decreased blemishes and acne scarring and targeting uneven skin tone and texture. This superstar serum will help brighten and smooth out your complexion without the dryness and irritation retinol serums can usually cause. Great for all skin types, this product retails anywhere from $30-$88. With a serum that claims to transform your skin and more, a luxury price tag is to be expected!

Glowish influencer Pamela has combination sensitive skin with acne. One of her main concerns is hyperpigmentation from acne scarring and is hoping the retinol do-it-all serum will help transform her skin. She enjoys the serumโ€™s lightweight texture that absorbs very quickly into her skin. After the first couple of uses, Pamela does notice her skin breaking out and attributes it to her skin purging and the adjustment period the skin usually goes through when using a retinol product for the first time. Ultimately the overall appearance of her skin did improve after her two-week trial, with her skin looking more glowy and a reduced appearance of pores. However, because of her skin sensitivity, it also left her skin feeling a bit irritated and she didnโ€™t notice any significant improvements with her hyperpigmentation. Despite the product checking off all its claims, ultimately it wasnโ€™t the right product for her skin.
