    My skin loves exfoliation, so I can’t live without this serum. It’s my secret weapon! It has done wonders fading my post acne marks and when I wake up after having used it the night before, I always find my skin to be brighter, clearer and smoother. I recommend this to everyone. The best!

    This product is fabulous. I had some breqakouts and they were gone after just a few treatments over night. It is just strong enough. Love it! People often comment about how great my skin looks now that I use only these products.

    I have finally found the perfect retinol serum after 15 years of trying so many different brands and prescriptions. It has the perfect blend of quality ingredients that actually work. Because it doesn’t have any unnecessary fillers, I can definitely feel and see this serum absorb into my skin. Other serums would just sit on the top layer of my skin without results. But with this, my skin has never looked better and i am glad I found pureceuricals!

    I have used retinols over the past 20+ years with mixed results. Usually, my skin looks good for about a week or so but then my skin starts to break out so I stop using it. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I have been using it since it first launched a few months ago and have had ZERO break outs and my skin looks fabulous in the morning. Marlene gave me a tip to layer it on top of the Ferrulic C so I have been doing that and my skin looks even better! My skin is able to tolerate it nightly (unless I use the Cherry Glycolic Peel) so I apply it to my face, neck and chest. It has definitely helped with the clarity of my skin and I have fewer blackheads. More importantly, my over 40 skin looks younger. If you only use one product from PureCeuticals, this is the one to have.

    I just received my second bottle of the Retinol & Lactic Resurfacing Treatment. I am a repeat customer because this product actually works on my thick skin. It helps keep my complexion even and smooth without breakouts; unlike the many other products I have tried. It really does work!

    This product is unrivaled in comparison to what’s out there! I have tried MANY different iterations of retinol products and this one is amazing. It is a reasonable percentage of retinol- not too strong but enough to make a substantial improvement in clarity, smoothness and boosting collagen. Also the addition of the lactic and glycolic acids helps keep your skin exfoliated without burning or causing redness- and I have fairly sensitive skin!
    I love to use this in combination with the Vitamin C/Ferulic treatment because most experts recommend retinol and vitamin C as MUSTS (in addition to sunscreen of course) for optimal skin treatments of over-40 skin.
    I love that these products are plant-based and contain no petrochemicals AND are scientifically grounded.
    My skin just keeps getting better as I use these products.

1.25% Cylasphere Retinol – Encapsulated in plant microspheres offers gradual release and enhanced efficacy with low irritant potential. Retinol helps stimulate cell regeneration and builds collagen to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots. Vitamin A helps to minimize pore size, while addressing blemishes and blotchiness associated with problematic acneic or mature skin.

10% Lactic Acid – An AHA (vegetable derived), helps with exfoliation and brightening, while increasing skin’s hydration. Excellent for more sensitive skin, dark or hyperpigmented skin.

5% Glycolic Acid – Aids in the removal of dead skin, smoothes and evens out skin tone and helps penetrate other ingredients.

Tego Stemlastin (Algae Extract) – Naturally derived from Cyanidum Caldarium Algae, which is rich in mineral nutrients, amino acids, polyphenols and GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). Stimulates epidermal stem cells and dermal fibroblasts encouraging skin rejuvenation.

Olive Squalane – Is a plant source alternative to Squalane found naturally in human sebum, which helps to hydrate and protect skin. Olive Squalane is an emollient with exceptional spreading and absorption properties.

A sensitivity to AHA’s must be determined. After cleansing and toning, apply 1 to 2 drops to face and neck areas every other night for one week to determine sensitivity, avoiding immediate eye area. Can be used nightly or 2x a week, stop using if skin is red or dry. A mild prickly sensation may occur at first, then subside. Do not use with other exfoliating products or treatments as this may increase sensitivity. Apply a moisturizer after use with a sunscreen of at least SPF 30. If irritation develops, discontinue use and consult your skincare specialist. A 24 hr patch test is recommended. pH 3.0-3.5
