Biossance Squalane + Retinol Night Serum 1.0 oz
What it is: An innovative formula with an encapsulated duo of time-release retinol and retinal, clinically shown to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and texture, with minimal irritation.
Skincare Concerns: Dark Spots, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and Uneven Texture
How it works: Optimized by time-release technology, squalane, and a powerful blend of antioxidants, this retinol serum features an effective delivery system that allows the retinoids to penetrate more deeply into the skin while being gradually released over eight hours, gently delivering dramatically visible results.
How to use:
-Apply pea-size amount to clean, dry skin at night.
-Start by using twice per week and gradually increase.
-Follow with moisturizer of choice after use. Add one to two drops of Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil (sold separately) for an extra boost of moisture.
-Apply sunscreen the following morning after use.
Why should I only use this at night?
Biossance recommends this serum in evening use because retinol and retinal can cause sensitivity to the sun. It is also important to wear a daily sunscreen every morning and reapply during the day.
How can I combine with other Biossance serums?
Biossance recommends using Squalane + Retinol Night Serum in the evening and choosing a day serum, like Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum or Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum (both sold separately). Be sure to use a small, pea-size quantity of retinol when starting out, even alternating between the nights used. Since their retinol is a powerful serum, the brand doesn't recommend layering with other treatment products, but encourages you to layer with other moisturizers and oils.
