Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0

Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 helps improve fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles that are the results of intrinsic-aging and photo-aging. Pore size is also minimized and blemishes are reduced. With a light weight, dual-action, time-release formula Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 goes out of its way to improve skin. At a price of $59 Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 may work but does it?
Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 contains ingredients that help moisturize skin. In fact the first nineteen ingredients, excluding water, are lubricants and moisturizers that cannot reduce wrinkles. When skin is hydrated wrinkles may appear less prominent. On the other hand retinol is the twentieth ingredient and present in a low amount, despite its high concentration.
