ELITE – RETINOL SERUM 2.5% Retinol is the #1 dermatologist recommended anti-aging ingredient. Long known for its ability to diminish the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles from collagen depleted skin, retinol is also a powerful antioxidant. Retinol can also help minimize the appearance of pores, help manage blemishes and eczema, and improve discolorations. Complementing this wonderful ingredient is the powerful hydrating action of vegan hyaluronic acid, phospholipids, jojoba and shea butter. The end result, beautiful skin.

    This serum is better priced and works so well, I cannot believe how it cleared up my acne so fast. My skin is so smooth I’ve only needed to wear tinted moisturizer at work, I love this!

  2. Ari

    I was using Cerave’s serum forever but switched to this after my sister recommended it. It really works faster and better overall and the fine lines around my eyes are nearly gone.

    I’ve been having some skin issues and thought I would try this product, it appears to have helped some breakouts slowly and has given my skin some life.. I would buy it again.

    I’m long past the irritation/redness/flakiness phase that retinol is known to cause in 99% of people. That being said, I still found this serum to be quite gentle. I initially ordered it to add to my moisturizer for my night routine, but then I figured I’d also use some on the backs of my hands. No adverse reactions to report. My hands have shown the most noticeable difference.
    I’ve never put any thought into my hands. That is, until recently. I read something about the skin on our hands being super thin and a lot like the skin on our face and therefore being quick to show signs of aging. And I’ve heard about hand models using facial oils & serums on their hands to help slow the age clock. So that’s what I’m doing. I braced for a possible reaction but there was none. My hands look clean and plump and hydrated, so I’m happy with it. I haven’t seen a noticeable difference when I used this on my face/neck but those areas weren’t as thirsty for improvement as my hands.

    At first I was a little scared to use this 2.5% retinol serum by Elite, as I’ve never used such a high percentage of Retinol. I am someone who is fortunate to not have had any negative reactions to various retinol creams I have tried thus far, but as with anything, trying something new is always a bit intimidating!

    I applied this on top of my base retinol cream, which is a 1% retinol. It seems a little overkill, but it is recommended by Elite beauty, and so this is what I did. It worked beautifully! My skin didn’t react whatsoever, and it left my skin feeling fresh, smoothed and happy. I have noticed great age reducing results from this, and my 33 year old skin is happy. If I am financially able, I will gladly be back to purchase more of this product in future, and I very much recommend it to you!

    This retina serum, more like a cream, is very gentle so if this isn’t something you normally use due to redness or sensitivity this might be a good product for you. Results will be much slower but you won’t have peeling skin or dryness. This is also hydrating so it’s good mix of ingredients to make it perfect for sensitive skin. It works well but I’m not noticing any brightness to my skin.

  7. Cindy Brandt

    Nice product. Hoping it helps with my age wrinkles!!!

    I really like how well this absorbs quickly into my skin and doesn’t leave any residue or stickiness behind. I have been using it a few times a week for a few weeks now and love the way my skin looks and feels now. I’ve been slowly trying out and switching to this skin care line and am very happy with the results.

    I typically use a prescription tretinoin cream when I am having a difficult time with breakouts, but even the lowest percentage makes my skin a dry, flaky mess. I wanted to try something more gentle and figured an OTC wouldn’t be as strong/harsh on my skin. I only use this a few times a week, especially during that time of the month, and it dries up my breakout as I sleep. Feels really nice when applied, absorbs quickly, and doesn’t leave a funky residue. It’s so gentle that I am able to use it near my under-eyes without my eyelids getting puffy. Although this takes more time/consistency to be effective, it’s worth not having to deal with the side-effects of a traditional tretinoin cream.
