This little blue bottle right here claims to be a fighter against signs of aging and will help to improve the appearance of aging and damaged skin. Now I’m used to using prescription-strength retinoids, but of course, very curious to see what this would do for my skin.
This serum is absolutely amazing if you would like to achieve good results without the side effects of the traditional retinol (redness, or flaky skin).
Sunday Riley is combining 5% retinoid ester blend, 1% liposomal-encapsulated retinol blend and 0.5% blue-green algae.
This serum helps to fight the signs of aging and improves the look of congested and UV damaged skin.
The product needs to be applied on clean, dry skin at night.
If you have sensitive skin, I would definitely recommend to build, and do not dive into this bottle right away, patience is key. Start with once or twice a week and go from there.
As I mentioned earlier, I am used to prescription strength vitamin A, I have tried a lot on my face but due to hormonal changes my skin has become more sensitive, I still like to work with active ingredients, so I was super curious how this serum would work for me.
I am now using this a few months 3-4 evenings a week; and I have to say it does wonders for my skin. My hyperpigmentation is less and the overal texture looks better, I’m pleasantly surprised. The product applies very beautifully and easy. Stay away from the eye area and make sure to apply SPF every morning, very important, never ever skip a day.
I am very happy with this blue bottle right here, my skin handles it very well and I have seen such an overall improvement. It also does not give me any redness or dryness; super pleased.
Do you use retinol in your routine? If so, what is your fav?
Thank you so much for reading, X Wiesje.
