    Product Information

    When it comes to multifunctional ingredients, our RETINOL POWERBALM LEVEL 1 is an all-rounder. Designed to renew your skin while you sleep (in sync with the skin’s own natural healing processes), this supercharged formula stars pure 0.1% retinol and peptides– making it a great retinol for beginners. 

    For resurfacing and replenishing the skin, retinol is a ‘powerhouse’ ingredient and among the most sought-after in skincare (and why products like retinol are a firm fixture in many people’s regimes). Not only does it have a proven track record in plumping and firming the skin to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, retinol also brightens the complexion and treats acne prone skin while reducing acne scars and pigmentation in the process. 

    While Retinol helps promote healthy skin cell renewal, the formula is also infused with Dermapep™ (a potent peptide), Tripeptides 1 and Tetrapeptide 3, which work in conjunction with the retinol to stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, refine skin texture and promoting a healthy glow. 

    “Our Retinol Powerbalm is one of our most popular products and for good reason. Inside each bottle is an exciting, highly effective and multi-functional formula of pure retinol and powerhouse peptides great for retinol beginners to increase radiance and skin firmness. Once customers’ skin gets used to this, they can then progress to Level 2 to see even more rapid results!” – Shelley Martin, Co-founder SKINICIAN 

    *Please note, this product comes in an airless pump bottle and will take a several pumps before the product is dispensed on first use.

    How does retinol work? 
    Retinol is a gold standard ingredient in skincare because it alters the behaviour of skin cells, making them act in a more youthful manner including promoting the rate of healthy skin cell renewal. It is a form of Vitamin A, an ingredient that stimulates cell renewal whilst refining pores, firming skin and increasing skin hydration. Retinol will also improve skin elasticity and actively reduce pigmentation to improve skin tone.  

    Is it safe to use retinol whilst pregnant? 
    Due to the concentration of Retinol, this product is not safe for use during pregnancy or while breast feeding. 

    Can I start using retinol on my skin if I am in my 20’s? 
    As your skin cells should be renewing at a healthy level in your 20's, it is less likely that you need retinol in your skincare routine. However, we understand that lifestyle can have a huge impact on your skin or that you may wish to prevent premature ageing. If this is the case, then you would benefit by introducing retinol into your skincare routine 2-3 times per week to maintain a younger-looking complexion.  

    Can I use any exfoliating products on the same day as retinol? 
    No, we do not advise the use of other skin resurfacing products on the same day that you plan to use your Overnight Retinol Powerbalm. If you wish to use any other exfoliating products such as our Enzyme Peel or Facial Exfoliator, you should discontinue your Retinol Powerbalm two to three days beforehand. 

    Why is SKINICIAN’s pure retinol better than others? 
    The SKINICIAN Overnight Retinol Powerbalm is formulated with pure retinol which has been clinically proven to be highly effective at targeting visible signs of ageing. Not all products are formulated with pure retinol and instead can contain a combination of milder, less effective retinoids that may not provide the same results. 

    Will retinol help acne? 
    Yes! If you suffer from either inflammatory or non-inflammatory acne, retinol is a great ingredient to add to your skincare regime. Retinol will help to unclog pores by increasing cell turnover and enable the skin to repair itself. It will also help to reduce post-inflammatory pigmentation from breakouts and reduce scarring from previous acne breakouts. 

    How to Use

    To be used only at night. After cleansing and toning, apply 2-3 pumps to clean skin and allow to absorb. If you have dry skin, follow with Advanced Restoring Night Cream. Alternatively, buffer it with Advanced Restoring Night Cream to dilute strength and allow gradual introduction to retinol. 

    How often should I use retinol? For best results:
    Ideally you use overnight retinol powerbalm once per day in the PM, however it may take some time to build up the skins tolerance to retinol everyday.

    CAUTION: It is recommended that retinol is not used for at least 5 days prior to sun exposure, waxing or advanced exfoliating/peeling treatments. For External use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with the eyes (incase of contact rinse thoroughly with water). Always wear a daily day cream with SPF when using retinol as your skin can be more sensitive to sun exposure.
