Retinol Fusion PM by Peter Thomas Roth

what is retinol?

:Pricey at $72:

I can’t review this product without telling you a little bit about what retinol is, since that’s basically all it is (PTR’s serum is made of 1.5% retinol and Vitamins C and E). 

Retinol is the pure form of Vitamin A, which, in our world, is a jack-of-all-trades. It helps with wrinkles, tightens skin and pores, improves texture and helps with acne. If you want the mechanics of that, retinol basically stimulates collagen production in our skin, and that my loves, is mother nature’s botox.

People with sensitive skin should use retinol containing products with caution. I recommend a test patch and gradual use because it can cause redness and dryness.  I took my own advice and used it at bedtime once a week to start and now I'm up to every other day.

I can't honestly say it's helped when Mr. Pimple (Mister, because he's that big) shows up, but investing in a retinol product is a proactive move.  If you have the money to spare, it's an inside-out product worth the money - i.e. it regenerates skin from beneath the surface.  Yes, I dug deep (ignore the pun) to rationalize this purchase, but beauty brains everywhere agree that stimluating collagen production is vital to maintaining tone, texture and youthfulness.

Like it.
