Creams Containing Retinol
These creams retinol cream (ultra potent vitamin a cream) Also known as. Retinol is actually a type of vitamin A derivative. I have talked about this subject at length in this article, so if you are extra interested in this subject and retinol types, when & how are they used? Also what are the things you should never do while using it etc. You can read our article below for important topics such as;
I can’t say that brand x is the best retinol cream as it may vary depending on your skin problem and which skin care step you want to include in it, but I have 6 products + 1 bonus product that are sure to be the best for you. You can start retinol (retinoid) by adding one that you decide is suitable for you to your routine. I mentioned a lot in my article above, but I have to write here as well; retinols and their derivatives are slow-acting substances. You have to use it for a long time to see any benefit on your skin.
Retinol Cream Recommendations
Here is what I really love/trust for you. retinol cream usersI have included the products that I received recommendations from. They sell products that contain very little ‘retinol’ as ‘anti-aging’, so when you buy a product, be sure to read the ingredients section. All of the products that I will recommend are really useful and clean products, there are a few important points of using retinols, there are products that you should never mix with each other, I mentioned them in the article above, be sure to read that article before adding it to your skin care routine 💖
Note: none of the products I recommend prescription retinoid creams not. I am in favor of only recommending such creams by your dermatologist.
Sunday Riley Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil – Night Oil with Retinol
It’s sold at Sephora. Retinol in its content has undergone some processes and is not irritating to the skin like normal retinols, it is much softer, so I think everyone can use it, except those with sensitive skin, because this product has a smell, this smell is not too bad, but not nice either. The product is also vegan and is not tested on animals 💖 If we come to the good side of this product, it is a skin product that you can see its effect instantly, the product you use while you go to bed allows you to wake up to a really beautiful skin when you wake up in the morning. I think it’s a great product overall, not just for Retinol;
- A brighter and more even skin tone
- Partially smaller appearing pores
- Makes dull and rough skin look completely healthy
- Fine lines and scars etc. It helps with the look.
2-3 drops is enough. You apply it before going to sleep at night and wake up to a great skin in the morning, the only problem maybe a little slow absorption, it didn’t cause acne or excessive oily skin on my skin.
The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane
This product is for those who want to add retinol to their full skincare routine, but here’s their cream, toner, etc. An ideal product for those who do not want to change. I put the 0.2% one here but your skin is susceptible to acids, retinols etc. If you are used to it, please start with this product. If you have been using retinol products before and you think your skin can handle it, then you can start using higher percentages (0.5% or more, I think 1%). Not just for wrinkles (although wrinkles are the most used reason) A great retinol that has been the solution to all my skin problems! Since it is a direct product, it is enough for me to use very little, only 1-2 drops. It is a very oily product, but all retinol products are almost like this, it does not cause acne, but it is a product that I can recommend to everyone (except for people who have never used retinol or acid before). The price is also extremely affordable, if you can find it from abroad, it is really affordable.
I praised this brand too much here, so if you want to hear me talk more about this brand, you can read our article;
Murad Resurgence Age-Balancing Night Cream
I mentioned that retinols are generally oily (and fluid like oil), but if you don’t like it that way, this creamy retinol might be great for you. Generally, people with dry skin don’t like retinol because retinol can dry out the skin more than normal, but this product is really intensely moisturizing! If you have dry skin and want to include a product with retinol in your skincare routine, this may be for you. Again, it can even be called as a night cream and a mask with a more intense structure than normal creams. When you wake up in the morning, you can see that many skin problems are reduced and you wake up with a healthy skin in the morning. After applying this cream and going to bed, your morning make-up is always much better. It also takes away the roughness of the skin and that textured feeling.
Avene Retrinal 0.1 Intensive Cream
It is a product that has a great effect on wrinkles, restores the skin’s elasticity and gives it a wonderful healthy glow. Recommended even for sensitive skin. You may not see the effect on wrinkles right away, but they say you can see the effect in 2 months. In addition, the content of the product is very clean and contains many beneficial substances for the skin. Definitely a product worth trying.
La Roche-Posay Redermic [R] Retinol Eye Cream
The area around the eyes is extremely sensitive, it is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of your face, so not every product is gentle enough to apply around your eyes, especially retinoids and its derivatives. This product will never cause burning, redness, etc. around the eyes. He didn’t, it was very kind. It is great for moisturizing the eye area and does not cause extra oiliness. I can also recommend retinol for beginners. A friend of mine uses this product only because he likes its moisturizing too much, retinol etc. not wearing. It is quite difficult to find a good moisturizer for under eyes, also, when applied in the evening, I definitely wake up with less puffiness around my eyes in the morning, I can definitely recommend it if you wake up with a puffy face in the morning.
La Roche-Posay Retinol 0.3% + Vitamin B3 Serum
Although it has an effect on wrinkles in long-term use, I think you will like the effect you see as soon as you start using it, because it is a product that improves your skin in general in every respect. It soothes the skin, regulates redness and other skin tone unevenness, and gives a healthy glow and luminosity. It provides a smoother skin, so in general, it is a very great product that can solve all your problems little by little.
Also as a bonus Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream I can recommend it, but I did not put it on the list because it is not in Turkey, I really like this brand. If he comes to Turkey, I can prepare a long list of suggestions 💖
