    My #1 overnight skin brightening product

    I always keep this in stock in my beauty kit (with at least one backup because I’m obsessed). It is a perfect overnight serum to prep my skin for exfoliating. I personally use a non-abrasive exfoliating gel in the morning after using the retinol serum; the combination leaves my skin perfectly smooth, so soft, and noticeably brighter and tighter. It helps my pores appear smaller and diminishes fine lines. It has also helped reduce my adult acne, blackheads, whiteheads, as well as reduce the red patches covered with dry scales I often get on my face when I do not use this serum as part of my regimen.


    First, I received a product that was yellow. They took care of it right away and sent me a new fresh product. I love it. It really does shrink pore size. I'm very happy with my purchase and glad I tried it.

    I love this serum!

    I use it every evening religiously. I think over time that the appearance of fine lines is diminishing. I love the way my skin feels and I love falling asleep to the gentle scent.

    Great Retinol

    Part of me still misses the Ruby retinol days, but this is a great nightly serum. Definitely evens out and firms up the skin– so much so that my dermatologist noticed. Please be sure you're using with SPF as it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

    Honest Review with. helpful information !

    Absolutely fabulous product for evening out your skin tone and brightening skin for a radiant glow! Say goodbye to dull skin. I highly recommend using with the Retinol eye cream which is my absolute favorite eye cream from the brand.

    If your crean comes out yellow - do not freak out, as this can be due to oxidation with the product and is totally normal #scienceiscool. This makes absolutely no difference and Anthony the effectiveness of the product and has been reviewed ; so do not worry - enjoy your new night serum for perfect skin!
