I recently had a really bad breakout and it made me frustrated, that even as an adult, I was having to deal with acne (I thought high school would be the end of it!!). Nothing in my daily routine had changed and so a major break out was unexpected.
I started looking into products to help my skin and I started reading into retinol. I’ve always heard about retinol, but I never really looked much into what they help do. It turns out that retinol is a form of Vitamin A that exfoliates and turns over dead skin cells. The benefit of this is the reduction in fine lines, dark spots (like acne scars scars) and smoother skin (since the retinoids are keeping your pores clear!). It’s no wonder this is such a coveted ingredient in the beauty industry!
Around that time, Olay happened to reach out about a product they were releasing. I was excited to learn it was for the launch of their new retinol line, Retinol24!
Out of the collection, I added the Retinol24 Night Serum to my nightly routine and I felt a difference in the texture of my skin within the first few days! I could tell my skin felt so smooth and hydrated, and over time both my acne and scars faded.
The Retinol24 is formulated to create virtually no irritation (a common reaction to retinols), and I personally didn’t have any irritation at all. It’s also worth noting that it free of fragrances or dyes–in other words fillers or unknown ingredients. I’ve been really happy with the results and skin improvements so far!
*Thank you to Olay for partnering on this post. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
