Retinol overnight repair

By 

from Essex

Comments about overnight retinol 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

Realistic

By 

from Cornwall

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

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.

This is it

By 

from Geneva

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

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

Noticeable results almost immediately

By

Comments about overnight retinol repair:

Using this product overnight for several months now, mixing it with Active Moist moisturizer in more or less even proportions. And the results are very much noticeable, my skin is more firm, tight, even and seems younger.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Do not use any exfoliants with retinol. You can use Overnight Retinol Repair and Power Rich on alternate nights. Map 15 is not necessary as Overnight Retinol repair already contains vitamin C.

      Kind Regards,

  • Q:

    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?

      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.

    I am trying to choose between the Power Rich tubes, and the Overnight Retinol Repair, or alternating between both for my night time routine.
