Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is a powerful anti-ageing treatment. It smoothes and resurfaces the complexion, lessening the appearance of lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and enlarged pores for younger-looking skin.
Why you need it:
Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment tackles a wide range of skin concerns with a potent concentration of 1% Retinol, one of the ultimate anti-ageing ingredients. Retinol, a form of Vitamin A, is proven to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and visible pores over time. It also helps with brown spots, acne breakouts, and any redness from previous breakouts. Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment offers one of the highest concentrations of Retinol available without prescription.
The formula also contains Peptides, another essential anti-ageing ingredient. Peptides promote skin's production of collagen, helping to keep skin firmer and younger-looking. Other star ingredients include Sodium Hyaluronate, a form of Hyaluronic Acid which keeps skin hydrated, and Vitamin E, which heals and moisturises. To help minimise irritation, Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment also includes soothing botanical extracts such as Oat Kernel and Licorice Root extract. The creamy lotion texture means it's especially suited to normal and dry skin.
Products containing Retinol are not recommended for use during pregnancy or when breast-feeding.
All skin types, but especially normal to dry skin.
Fragrance-free, Colourant-free, Cruelty-free.
How to use:
Apply a pea-sized amount to face and neck after cleansing and toning, then follow with your favourite serum and/or night-time moisturiser. Avoid the lips and direct contact with the eyes or corners of the eyes.
When you first start using Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment, start by using it no more than 3 evenings a week to give skin time to build tolerance. Gradually increase your usage to every other evening, then finally every night. If you experience dryness, flaking or redness, reduce frequency of use or mix one pump of Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment with your serum or moisturiser. Discontinue use if symptoms persist.
