How To Use

Apply 1-2 pumps in the evening to clean, dry skin. For targeted instructions, see below: For new retinoid users: Use two days on, two days off. Work your way up to every other day, then to daily, evening use. Follow with a hydrating oil or moisturizer, like C.E.O. Glow or Juno. Use an AHA serum, like Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment, on alternate nights to sweep away dead skin cells.

For advanced retinoid users: Use daily, in the evenings. Follow with a hydrating oil or moisturizer, like C.E.O. Glow or Juno. Use an AHA serum, like Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment, in the mornings to sweep away dead skin cells.

For sensitive skin: Apply a few drops of a gentle, hydrating oil, like C.E.O. Glow or Juno to your skin before applying A+ serum.

Precautions: Sunday Riley does not recommend using retinoids while pregnant. Please consult your doctor before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Sunday Riley always recommend using sunscreen during the day, if using retinoids in the evening.
