part of age smart product system

Firm to smooth away the signs of skin aging. Control aging triggers before they start.

AGE smart®

Firm to smooth away the signs of skin aging. Control aging triggers before they start.

AGE Smart® contains scientifically advanced ingredients proven to impact the major biochemical reactions that contribute to skin aging before they start, so your skin is left smoother, firmer and healthier. AGE Smart® is the intelligent investment in your future skin.

how it works

AGE Smart works by impacting the main biochemical reactions that manifest the signs of skin aging: the formation of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS, also known as free radicals), the generation of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the development of Advanced Glycation End-products (AGEs).

It's great!

I really like it, it makes a difference when you apply at night and you wake up much more plump in the morning. At first I used it with the buffer, I thought it would be very strong or something, burning the skin and so, but soon I realised I actually didn't need the cream and start using it alone after two applications. The only thing is not changing much is the coloured age spots I have in my cheeks, I thought it might but not really. Pity because that would make it incredible as I wouldn't need anything else for my night routine.

Just did not work for me

I am surprised. With every use of this product my skin started getting darker by the shade. Obviously, there the only visible difference was darkness in skin colour. I stopped using it but sad that it was so costly and did not work me.

I have used this product for a month now, building up usage as required and have had increasing under the skin bumps and breakouts. Discontinued use and my face is finally clearing up. Really wanted to like this one.

I have used many retinol serums but this is one of the best Ive used. Saw results over night! I especially love the buffer cream.....I would love to purchase the buffer cream separately as my moisturizer??

I just started using this product this week so I am still waiting to see how it will work for me. I am following the directions on how to apply to the skin. So far I have not had any skin irritation or problems with this.

Retinol overnight repair

Amazing, I am in love with this product. It was bought for me for Mother's Day and I have been using it every other night since. I do invest in high end skin products but I have never had results like this before. I have received so many compliments and I can really see the difference. I will definitely be buying this again and Would 100% recommend it 😁

I'm very sceptical with beauty products which claim they can diminish lines. My beauty therapist recommended this product and gave me a sample. I've been using it for 5 days and can see a difference already which my hubby confirmed. I'm under no illusion the lines will disappear completely but am happy they've faded along with my skin feeling firmer. I will certainly be investing in this product.

First of all I had been lemming these products for like 10 years now but I was not sure thought they were just not for me, but recently hubby surprised me with a couple of dermalogica products and long story short I have only used them like 5 times and already my skin looks supple, young and smoothing out my acne marks and wearing foundation now feels so good. I suffer from cystic acne, hyper pigmentation , and blotchy skin.Thank you dermalogica you have saved me a lot of sorrow and stress, there goes makeup artist peels in the garbage they destroyed my skin and left me with ugly acne scars . I will try your other products like cleansers etc

I see that you advise not to exfoliate whilst using retinol. A what stage would it be OK to exfoliate again? After say a week? I like your Super Foliant product. Or would it just not be necessary if I continued to use the retinol?

Catherine

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You should not exfoliate while using retinol. Retinol increases cell turn over. Exfoliating sloughs off cells. Exfoliating while using retinol will over process your skin. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Do I use the buffer cream only to acclimatize the skin so end up just using the retinol ? If so how much of it ? I am measuring 2 part buffer 2 part retinol for now . Does that change to 1part buffer 3 part retinol etc etc ?

D

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can start with 3 parts buffer cream and one part retinol. Kind Regards, Bernadette

If getting a facial, should I stop using the retinol product for a few days before?

zigzag

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Yes discontinue for 3-5 days before and after. Be sure to inform your therapist that you are using retinol. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can I use the Overnight Retinol Repair under my eyes if I use Age Reversal Eye Complex first? Do I need to mix the Overnight Retinol Repair with the Buffer cream in the 3 to 1 ratio to start?

Jean

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Use Age Reversal Eye Complex for the eyes. Follow with Overnight Retinol Repair. Start with a ratio of 1 part retinol and 3 parts buffer cream. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this product safe to use at my age (21) because i have acne pigmentation, some facial discoloration and uneven skin tone.

Jake

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you have these concerns, you can use Overnight Retinol Repair every other night to start. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Hi Can I still use the prep scrub 3 times a week while using the retinol?

Bea

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please do not exfoliate while using retinol. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I've been using this for about 2 weeks now, and my skin is just now getting a bit flaky & itchy, in the day only. If we aren't supposed to use any type of exfoliation, how are we supposed to slough the dry skin off without rubbing it & making it more irritated? I will switch to every other night & see if that helps with the itchy dry parts.

Tracey

Hello , Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I apologize for your negative experience. Please switch to using it ever other night and use more buffer cream. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this 1% retinol

Audge

Hello Audge, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. We offer .5% Overnight Retinol Repair online, You can buy either .5% or 1% in person at a Skin Treatment Center near you. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Instructions say to use overnight retinol repair as a last step. Does that mean you only use cleanser and then overnight retinol repair or can you use antioxidant hydro mist before applying overnight retinol repair? Is the buffer cream a moisturizer? When do you moisturize at night when using overnight retinol repair? When you have acclimated to just overnight retinol repair when and how do you moisturize at night?

Becky

Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use mist, follow with Overnight Retinol Repair mixed with Buffer Cream. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this oil free and non pore clogging? As I have acne Also.

Hannah

Hello Hannah, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Overnight Retinol Repair is for aging skin. If you are oily and have acne, you may prefer Overnight Clearing Gel. Kind Regards, Bernadette
