Product Overview

This highly-effective cream contains clinically proven ingredient, pure retinol. It helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin texture, reduce age spots and refine pore size. Patented MICROSPONGE® Sustained Release technology allows the retinol to be released slowly into the skin to minimise the possibility of irritation and produce visible anti-ageing benefits. Also with high level protection from both UVA and UVB filters with an SPF30. This day cream has also been formulated with vitamin E to provide extra environmental defence.

This special intensive day cream has been formulated with pure retinol (natural vitamin A), many other companies use cheaper alternatives such as retinol derivatives, which are less effective. To improve the hydration of the skin this cream this cream contains hyaluronic acid which helps to improve moisture retention, giving a more plumped, youthful look. In addition, we also use Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, a derivative of licorice. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties and is very complimentary in retinol containing products.

How to apply



Every morning, apply a small pearl sized amount to the fingertips and massage gently into face and neck after cleansing and toning, avoiding the delicate eye area. If you have not used retinol before, build up use over a 2 week period, alternating each day with one of our other day creams.

Prrfect for holidays, feels great and a pleasure to use.

13 March 2016

Found the cream a little too thick and the nozzle on the tube a little too wide, so it was difficult to eject a small amount of cream. Also gave my face a white covering, until absorbed by the skin.

01 March 2016

I am still using a previously purchased item.

24 February 2016

It has definitely helped 2 bad areas of age spots to fade so much so that they are now barely noticeable. I am sure it is also protecting my skin from the weather and keeping it in good condition.

31 January 2016

Used every day since purchase and there is a slight improvement in skin condition. I'm sure with continued use the effects will be compounded.

05 January 2016

It's ok. I won't be bring it again as it's not an intensive enough moisturiser for my skin type

01 January 2016

This cream is too strong for me. I have never reacted badly to any face cream but this, like the night cream, made my face red and sore. It took 3 days for the soreness to heal. I will not buy it again.

30 December 2015

I like the way this cream softens my skin and feels protected.

06 December 2015

I used this befor and then I went on to the Replenish range but I don't think it is as good

05 December 2015

Good service despatched quickly

20 November 2015

This was misordered but will come in when we have some sun to be protected from. A little goes a very long way: care is needed in dispensing: the tube and cream are both soft so much more comes out than is required!

09 November 2015

Excellent service

09 November 2015

Makes complexion look good without further makeup, which, at 82, is a great relief! Will be ordering the night cream.

08 November 2015

Good

27 October 2015

I have been using this cream for about three weeks and so far I am very happy with the results. It is a pleasant cream to use, not too heavy for a high SPF and is easy to apply with quick absorption into the skin. I bought this cream together with the replenish collagen boosting serum and I think that my skin has improved since using them - hope that this isn't wishful thinking! I have a sensitive skin and I have had no adverse effects from this cream.The tube is a different matter and is a problem which really needs to be addressed. Too much cream comes out too easily and modifying the application end would improve matters greatly.

Helpts to Smooths out my tired and aged skin x

16 October 2015

I have nothing to compare it with, but my skin seems to benefit from it.

11 October 2015

As above excellent value and quality
