FREE deluxe Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish & Bionic Oxygen Facial w/any Exuviance purchase
Super Retinol Concentrate by Exuviance is a unique nighttime transformer that supercharges the proven power of retinol with their patented NeoGlucosamine, amplifying results while delivering a gradual, time-released infusion of pure retinol in a microencapsulated form to minimize irritation.

Widely recognized by dermatologists for its antiaging power, retinol helps build natural collagen and its surrounding support matrix for plumping and firming benefits, reducing the look of deep-set wrinkles and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from the inside out. Cell turnover is enhanced, revealing smoother skin texture and more even tone with less discoloration.

Patented NeoGlucosamine is clinically proven to work synergistically with retinol, building skin's support matrix to increase skin firming and smoothing effects versus retinol alone. As skin becomes firmer and new cells emerge, skin is transformed, younger looking.

Designed for maximum efficacy and stability, the formula contains a retinol-stabilizing complex and utilizes a special airless pump-top tube to maintain freshness.
In the evening, apply all over clean face and neck as desired. Concentrate can be layered under a moisturizer such as Exuviance's Evening Restorative Complex. Store this product inverted on its cap with pump facing downward. Dispense product with pump in the downward position.

      Bubbly on your face! As the gel bubbled, I kept thinking of champagne. Next time I use this, I'll not only have bubbles on my face, but in my glass too!

      With my Rosacea and super sensitive skin, who would have thought one treatment would leave my skin feeling revitalized, but yet soothed? This is a great find and I enthusiastically endorse it. It's ju st like your skin is saying "Aaah". This feels terrific!!

              I bought the eye cream from this line and loved it. So I bought this. It was created by the same doctors who discovered AHA! I had high hopes. This was such a let down. The silicone is meant to stabilize and allow a timed release of the product, but there is so much in it that it just sits on my face like a sheet. It's gross. I woke up with little grey pills on my face. My skin looked terrible, too. It had no effect on fine lines or on dark pigmented areas. My skin texture was rough, patchy, and my pores opened up like like craters on the moon after 3 weeks of use. I tried to tough it out and give it eight weeks, but my skin looked so bad even my husband noticed and my makeup looked gross. I really wanted to like, but it just doesn't work.

                  Have used many retinol products at many price points and this one is a keeper. Pretty comparable to those sold only in physician's offices. Weaker than a prescription retinol but not everyone can tolerate those, myself included. I liked this but went back to Skinceuticals which is still my favorite. The delivery system of a retinol is just as important as the strength when it comes to reducing irritation.

                    • Q:

                      I love this line and just ordered this product. I also use the glycolic performance peel two times a week as recommended as well as the vespa bionic serum. I wanted to know whether I could use this on the same night after I use the performance peel? If not, how many days should I wait in between using the performance peel and then using this? Also, how should I be layering this with the bionic serum?

                      Thank you.

                        We're thrilled you love our products! Super Retinol Concentrate can be used along with Performance Peel AP25 on in-between peel days, as tolerated. Use Performance Peel AP25 twice per week and Super Retinol Concentrate on in-between peel days, after applying Vespera Bionic Serum.

                        A:

                        Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate is a high strength product that we generally recommend for night time use. Exposing your skin to the sun or tanning beds while using this product can cause skin sensitivity and increase the potential for irritation.

                        Your ability to protect your skin while you are exposed to the sun will depend on the amount of SPF you apply, how often you apply the product, the length of sun exposure and your overall skin type.

                        A:

                        Since these are both high strength treatment products we would not recommend using them one after another. The best way to use both products as part of a regimen would be to alternate using them each night. For example: Every other night use Super Retinol Concentrate and the nights in between use the Daily Acne Peel. Alternatively, you could use the Super Retinol Concentrate at nighttime and the Daily Acne Peel as part of your morning regimen.
