Nighttime use only. This unisex all-star is a deep resurfacing and repairing gel serum in a hygienic pump. Award-winning retinoid antioxidant boosters obliterate spots and hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. Their Retinal complex includes Bakuchiol (a botanical Vitamin A substitute with no deleterious retinol effects) Free from parabens, sulfates, PEGS, TEA, DEA, mineral oils, petrochemicals, and artificial fragrance. Fantastic, and also a bit more pricey but use sparingly, worth the splurge!
