Breakouts unfortunately are not a thing of the teen past.
Adult acne is the number 1 top skin concern and growing especially high in the stress and change of lockdown times.
Adult breakouts have very different behaviours to teen ones. (Check out my blog on teen v's adult acne). The breakouts last longer, can leave a post pigmentation mark for quite a while and come with inflammation that adds to the ageing process on the skin. Oily skin types can be super for naturally protecting against tje signs of ageing, but blackheads and breakouts are not.
If you do not suffer breakouts do not think this product isnt for you!...
Multi use products have to be on everyone's wish list, saving cupboard space, time and budget.
Dermalogica do it again with the new Retinol clearing oil.
On the first read you understood that you read 'Clearing'. You thought breakouts. You may have read oil and thought why would an oil help spots? BUT did you stop at the word Retinol?
Retinol is the show stopping ingredient in this formulation and why it has been named first! Retinol is the only ingredient to be clinically proven to reverse the signs of ageing. Its huge in the skincare market!
Now hang on there and if you need more on retinol you must ensure you read my retinol blog. Get savvy on this as not all retinol containing products are create equal.
It was about time we targeted two big adult skin concerns together plus with a light weight oil that doesnt feel like an oil. Not everyone likes an anti ageing product that feels heavy. Most anti ageing target a mature skin that typically needs extra oil. This is so refreshing to fill the gap.
I have been fortunate as an ambassador to get my hands on this product before launch. It instantly sucks into the skin and I have seen instant refreshed skin. I'm not a huge breakout person but when I do get them I suffer. I have used Overnight clearing gel for blackheads and the onset of breakouts and always had it for that as and when needed moments. Retinol clearing oil is replacing overnight clearing gel and I can definately say that I will be wanting to use this much more.
I have always thoroughly road tested all the products. When retinol hit the scene I threw my skin into it and experienced the full sensitivity retinol effect, not so good but brilliant to know what to experience in order to advise clients better. This new formulation has been developed with:
Salicylic Acid – stimulates natural exfoliation to help clear clogged follicles and smooth away dullness that contribute to visible skin ageing.
Retinol – accelerates skin renewal and repair to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
Jojoba, Rosehip Seed, and Argan Oils – lightweight, skin friendly oils packed with phytoactive lipids that ‘melt’ into the skin’s natural lipid layers between surface cells.
To soothe and hydrate the skin to avoid irritation. After 10 days of use I havent had any sensitivity and find this will be a perfect introduction to retinol for new beginners or those sensitive to the stronger counterparts. My fine lines have loved this formulation and I can see them fading, yet my skin looks hydrated well to help plump the skin too. The lipids in this formulation make it an oil but it isnt oily feeling.
