Hesperidin & Caffeine
Fine Lines are Softened
The first serum of its kind, the formula harnesses the ability of r-Retinoate to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles, gifting the under-eyes with visible vitality and radiance.
Use Day & Night
The featherlight serum can be used both in the day and night for heightened results. Sinking effortlessly into the eye contours the gentle serum visibly softens the passage of time.
Highly tolerated even by the most sensitive skin types, retinyl retinoate is proven to deliver astonishing visible results. Improvements become even more remarkable over time with continued use. The ability of this unique hybrid molecule has been demonstrated in multiple studies including a clinical trial published in the highly esteemed British Journal of Dermatology.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum around the eye area, carefully avoiding the eyelids.
You should always use a sunscreen in the morning while using vitamin A.
