Super Retinol Concentrate

Item #: 2280138 Size: 1.0 oz

Ask a Question
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.

      Comments about Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate:

      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.

            Comments about Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate:

            I would like to start by saying that I am 21 years old, going to college and double majoring in biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology. Needless to say I often have late nights that result in a lack of sleep, and I research the chemical process behind the active ingredients in the products I buy. As for this product, It overall performed wonderfully and accounted for some of the main issues involving the active ingredients. I began using it one week ago today, (I would recommend taking before and after photos in the same lighting one or two weeks after you have started using this super retinol concentrate to see if it works for you) and over one week i noticed that my pores have greatly diminished in size, the fine lines I have on my forehead have almost disappeared entirely, my skins texture is noticably smoother and I do not need to apply as makeup in the morning. This product also is designed to minimise the products exposure to air, which is incredibly important as retinol and retinol derivatives denature easily in an oxygen rich environment. My skin is oily and i exhibit hyperpigmentation from acne, as well as I have marks from sun damage across my cheeks. This product has improved these marks and visibly lightened them. I would like to recommend that if you decide to use this product, only use it at night and use a high SPF sunscreen in the morning. I also did not experience any sensitivity to this concentrate, but if you are worried about having a reaction to this product then cleanse a small portion of your hand and then apply the product to see how it affects you. Also exfoliation before using this product will increase your skins ability to absorb it, so your results will be greater. Honestly a great product, I would highly recommend it!

              Comments about Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate:

              I use this product every other night after cleansing oil. It soaks in quickly and I apply night cream over top. It has really helped soften the lines across my forehead and the frown lines between my eyebrows. My skin leans toward dry so I can't use it every night. This is the most expensive product I use; I save my Ulta points to offset some of the cost. The tube is a decent size, so it lasts 3 - 4 months. I would probably keep buying it even if I didn't have Ulta points.

                      Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate is a wonderful addition to a nighttime regimen! Simply apply this concentrate to your skin after cleansing and toning and before applying your night cream. We recommend pairing this night treatment product with Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex.

                      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.

                    Many moons ago, my dermatologist prescribed Retin-A for my acne. Nowadays, retinol products seem to be primarily advertised for anti-ageing and reducing wrinkles. Would this product actually HELP with acne, or are there other ingredients that could aggravate acne (oily moisturizers, etc.)? I'm 43 and my acne is starting up again, especially along my jawline and neck.

                      A:

                      Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate contains 1% Retinol encapsulate. Topical retinol products have been an industry standard for both acne and anti-aging concerns for years. Retinol helps with cellular turnover, which can purge and reduce blemishes, smooth skin texture and reveal a more even skin tone with less discoloration left over from acne. Retinol also provides many antiaging benefits to skin including increased skin thickness, build-up of natural collagen, plumping and firming effects and a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The addition of our patented NeoGlucosamine helps to amplify results working synergistically with retinol.

                  • Q:

                    I experienced an extreme (constantly having 3-5 major breakouts at a time) onset of adult acne around 29 (now 31) and have finally found a system that has balanced my skin so that I only break out once every few months. Because of this I've been wary/cautious about trying or using any other products on my face, BUT I also realize at this age that my skin is not bouncing back like it used to in terms of acne marks. I'm also noticing some fine lines beginning to stick around on my forehead and am hoping a retinol product will help with that. Of all your retinol products, would this serum be the best option for reducing acne marks and fine lines when that person has been dealing with adult acne and wants the continue using the same acne system as usual??

                      Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate can be used under the eyes and on crow's feet. This is also a perfect product for layering beneath a favorite eye cream! We suggest starting out by applying Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate twice a week and gradually working up to daily use to ensure you allow skin time to acclimate to the product.
