Reverse the signs of ageing with Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair - beauty review

I’ve always liked Dermalogica because it’s a no fuss brand who let the products do the talking.
As many users will attest, a Dermalogica product does what it says on the tin which makes their newest product – an Overnight Retinol Repair anti-ageing cream even more exciting!

A new addition to Dermalogica’s Age Smart range, the Overnight Retinol Repair is a powerful treatment cream that accelerates skin renewal and reduces the appearance of skin aging overnight.

The product has an active microencapsulated pure Retinol (0.5%) which helps increase collagen production and cell turnover; powerful peptides and antioxidant Vitamin C to help fight signs of aging including uneven skin tone and discoloration, and is formulated with a clinically-proven bioenergized Copper amino acid complex shown to reduce visible wrinkles and improve skin firmness.

Due to the strength of the retinol, every Overnight Retinol Repair comes with a moisturising Buffer Cream to help skin acclimate to the highly-active retinol.
The brand strongly recommends the use of the buffer cream or other moisturisng cream with the retinol to avoid bad reaction like red or blotched skin until the skin gets used to the retinol. - beauty blog
1 part retinol + 3 part buffer cream.



For use, Dermalogica advises starting with a small dosage such as one mix of one quarter overnight Retinol Repair to three-quarters Buffer to enable the skin to adapt to build a tolerance to the retinol.

Visible result in the form of reversal of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin discolouration reversal is guaranteed after 14 days of use.
