Neutrogena launches range of affordable retinol products to target ‘even deep wrinkles’

The elite ingredient of skincare, retinol, just got more affordable!

Let’s be honest, not very many people want to spend between €150 and €400 for 20-30ml of retinol that promises the sun, moon and stars for youthful rejuvenation.

Now you don’t have to as trusted brand, Neutrogena, launches a brand-new face care range, called Retinol Boost.

It is designed to help “boost your skin’s A-Game by preventing and correcting multiple visible signs of ageing.”

The host of new products harness the power of Pure Retinol (a dermatologist-proven form of Vitamin A) for visibly youthful, healthy-looking skin.

The best part: this comprehensive range is suitable for everyone from beginners to expert users.

The line was developed with dermatologists, who created the formulas to blend ingredients that your future skin will thank you for.

The potent nature of the products mean they are so effective that results are visible after as little as one week of proper use.

In a press release, the brand states: “Neutrogena® brings its performance to scientific formulas, delivering top results so you can feel confident that your skin is on its A-Game.”

The products contain three key ingredients with the aim of achieving maximum efficacy with great tolerability:

  • Pure Retinol – a dermatologist-proven form of Vitamin A. Scientifically proven to stimulate cell renewal at the skin’s surface, it also works to increase collagen production. As cells renew, skin looks rejuvenated and revitalised, and fine lines, dullness, wrinkles, and pigmentation spots are improved.
  • Myrtus Plant Extract‡, known for its skin-regenerating benefits, boosts Retinol effectiveness
  • Hyaluronic Acid‡ to intensely hydrate and plump the skin.

How to use

According to the brand experts, there is a specific way that these products needs to be used to avoid irritation and to get the best results.

“Pure Retinol is a powerful and effective active ingredient, which can irritate the skin if used incorrectly,” it says.

“Neutrogena® Retinol Boost has been carefully formulated with a blend of ingredients, with the aim of achieving maximum efficacy with minimum irritation. Ideal for beginners, but no compromise on results for more experienced users.

“For Retinol beginners, gradually phase into your skincare routine. Start with 2-3 uses per week for the first 3 weeks, working up to daily/nightly use as tolerated.”

Neutrogena’s Retinol Boost range is suitable for both daytime and nighttime use, but you should lways use an SPF during the day when using Retinol, as it can increase sun sensitivity.

Your key skin concerns should determine your selected routine.
