Hello there! Today I’m reviewing the Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer from Oz Naturals.
Here’s what it says on the website:
A powerful cocktail of antioxidants combine with Vitamin A to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and premature aging due to sun exposure. This results-oriented formulation fights free radical damage as well as restores and renews firmness, elasticity, and thickness to the skin. Vitamin A boasts a long list of clinically proven restorative, anti-aging, and youth-enhancing properties.
The key ingredients are: Vitamin A (exfoliation, skin cell turnover), Hyaluronic Acid (hydration), Vitamin E (antioxidant), Green Tea (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory , Vitamin B5 (moisture, exfoliation), and Jojoba Oil (super skin ingredient – antioxidant, reduce inflammation, moisture, exfoliation).
And here’s the full ingredient list for those of you who are into the science side of skincare (you know who you are! <3):
Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), Isopropyl Palmitate (Palm Oil), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Organic Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower Oil), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond Oil), Hyaluronic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Organic Resina Propoli (Propolis), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Allantoin, Citric Acid.
My experience: When I started using this moisturizer two weeks ago at night, I stopped using my Retinol Serum (OZ Naturals) because I didn’t want to over do it with the retinol. For the first few nights, I used the moisturizer alone to test for skin sensitivity /reactivity, and once I knew that my skin tolerated it, I added my Vitamin C Serum (also OZ Naturals) back into my nighttime skincare routine. I find that when I combine the two, my skin GLOWS the next day. With the arrival of colder weather, my skin is normally dry and dull, but my skin seems to just drink this moisturizer up, leaving me with hydrated, glowing skin. I especially like the fact that this moisturizer has no real scent.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤ ❤ ❤
