I was recently asked to review an anti wrinkle serum that contained retinol- Azure Naturals Ultimate Retinol Anti Wrinkle Serum.
I must admit that I have tried a few serums over the past few months, and although they made my skin soft and look better, I wouldn't say they exactly changed a lot. To be fair, some serums take awhile to show results, and because of my busy review schedule, I don't always have months to test a product- plus the clients want their reviews faster than that.
I was kind of thinking that this might be another one of those serums. However, I must admit that after about 2 days of using it, I really am seeing a difference in my skin. I applied it for the first time after using a salt scrub, which admittedly, made my skin look incredible.. I think it was prepping me for this!
I put the serum only on a few places at first to make sure I wouldn't have a reaction. I can have delicate skin, and I DID just exfoliate so the chance of irritation was higher than usual. I went to sleep. I woke up and my skin looked pretty nice. I was impressed- so I decided to wash my face and reapply all over.
I stay indoors most days in the summer, so I wasn't worried about sweating, or adding a sunscreen or anything. I let it sit all day, and reapplied again that night.
I have to say, I actually saw that my skin looked "fuller." I don't know if that makes any sense- it wasn't puffy, but it seemed like the skin was healthier looking. The nasty wrinkle in the middle of my forehead was a little less obvious. The lines under my eyes, not so wrinkly.
I was really hoping to see a sunspot on my face a little lighter, but I am not sure that happened- but it is only day 2 so maybe that will come later. It certainly didn't look any darker!
I will be using this for a bit longer before I add their second suggested product- a Vitamin C serum for daytime. Frankly, with all the results from the first serum though, I am hesitant to stop using it.. lol.
A few thinks of note-
- No animal testing was performed on these products. I hate to think of sad little bunnies coated in wrinkle serum for my benefit- these guys have a heart!
- The products are Made In the USA! Always a favorite of mine. (I have a tab to the right for other products Made in the USA in case you are curious.)
- The ingredients are natural. Another of my faves!
I will keep you all posted on my results!
