Retinol Energizing Moisturizer Review
Wrinkle creams often include ingredients that cause skin dryness, but not Retinol Energizing Moisturizer. As a moisturizer Retinol Energizing Moisturizer is said to do two things at once: reduce wrinkles and moisturize. Retinol Energizing Moisturizer can be used on all skin types and even with make-up.
By using vitamin A, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and retinol, Retinol Energizing Moisturizer is said to minimize the appearance of fine lines and improve skin firmness, texture, and tone. By penetrating into the skin both retinol and vitamin A are said to stimulate new skin cell production. Meanwhile Omega-3 fatty acids are theoretically used for reducing the look of wrinkles through collagen production.
Ingredients and Mechanisms of Action
A majority of the ingredients in Retinol Energizing Moisturizer are actually fillers, including grape seed extract, primrose oil, camellia sinensis leaf extract, milk peptides, lutein, water, glycerin, and selenium. Despite being natural ingredients, each really has no significance in Retinol Energizing Moisturizer’s advertised results. Vitamin E does provide antioxidants that fight free radicals but cannot reduce wrinkle appearance. Retinol and vitamin A also are not able to reduce fine lines.
Omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial to the body as a whole but lack the agents to increase collagen production, the factor of wrinkle reduction. Peptides are proven to increase collagen and elastin production; an ingredient Retinol Energizing Moisturizer lacks. Milk peptides are present but in very little quantities and not enough to be effective.
Overall Impression of Retinol Energizing Moisturizer
Peptides are required to increase collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Retinol Energizing Moisturizer lacks this ingredient as well as others need to significantly improve the look of skin. Vitamin A and retinol do have the ability to improve skin texture and brightness however. As an eighty-eight-dollar product, Retinol Energizing Moisturizer is expected to do more than moisturize and brighten. Unfortunately Retinol Energizing Moisturizer does not live up to expectations and is nothing other than an expensive moisturizer.
