Find in Store-

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.

        This product is pricey, however, feels good applying. Ultimately the skin surface peels and, for me, sun damage/red spots, that would not occur with some other types of anti-aging products. I should have returned it near the return date but the sales lady was way to positive for me using it elsewhere.

            I had .25% from the dermatologist, that cost almost as much. Didn't seem to do much. This is very strong and seems to be cumulative. After 3 times it did really dry/burn right under my eyes. Now I know how it works so will only use every other or 2 nights. Definitely gives your money's worth

                Truly surprising

                By CleverName

                from Las Vegas, NV

                Comments about Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate:

                I have been using prescription Retin-A for years, so this had big shoes to fill. When I ran out of my prescription and couldn't get a doctors appointment for months, I figured I would try this. It was just as effective as prescription but not nearly as irritating. I was amazed. My skin was soft, and I never experienced any redness or flaking. It was truly gentle but extremely effective. This might be very strong if you have never used a retinol, so be careful. Do not combine it with AHA or BHA's you may also be using. That will certainly cause this to be too much. But if you're looking to start using a retinol without the doctor, this is probably the best quality available, and possibly even better than prescription. I've tried several OTC retinols, and this is the only one to impress me and give comparable results to the prescription.

                  I havent used super retinol concentrate enough to properly review as of yet but so far so good, as with all exuviance products. Tube is smaller than expected but I can get past that if in fact the product is as great as the other exuviance products i've tried (and i've tried many). I rate this brand over all better than average.

                      It really works on your sun damaged skin. It only leaves damaged sun spots with scaly patches until area has been completely treated, all other areas of your face are gently exfoliated to reveal soft, radiant skin. I really am impressed!

                          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.

                          The appearance of superficial acne scars may be softened over time with continued use of the Super Retinol Concentrate in combination with a daily antiaging regimen. Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate will help exfoliate dull surface layers and stimulate the process of cell renewal among skin layers to reveal healthier cells. This product will help even skin tone, and enhance texture and radiance as well.

Also, how should I be layering this with the bionic serum?

                          Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate is formulated with 1% Retinol encapsulate. The product is formulated with Retinol in a microencapsulated form to maximize potency and tolerability of this high-strength formulation.

                        I like to tan at the beach. If I use 30 spf will that protect my skin from sunburn?

                          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.
