    Product details

    When it comes to multi-functional ingredients, our Retinol Powerbalm Level 2 is an all-rounder. Designed to renew your skin while you sleep (in sync with the skin’s own natural healing processes), this supercharged overnight treatment stars pure 0.5% retinol and peptide technology – making it our most potent and concentrated overnight retinol product yet. 

    For resurfacing and replenishing the skin, retinol is a ‘powerhouse’ ingredient and among the most sought-after in skincare (and why products like retinol cream and retinol serum are a firm fixture in many people’s regimes). Not only does it have a proven track record in targeting visible signs of ageing by plumping and firming skin, improving elasticity and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, retinol also brightens the complexion and treats breakout-prone skin while reducing acne scars and actively reducing pigmentation in the process.


    The formula is also made unique with the infusion of  Tripeptide-1, a peptide that works in conjunction with the retinol to stimulate collagen and elastin, firming skin, refining the skin texture, and promoting a youthful glow.


    “I’m so proud of this latest concentrated version of our flagship Retinol Powerbalm. The multi-functional benefits of retinol and peptides are undeniable, and our team has worked hard to ensure this new formula harnesses all of its renewing properties to give tired, stressed skin its bounce and radiance back. This is next-level retinol at an accessible price point. I can’t wait for customers to try it and see the difference!”– Shelley Martin, Co-founder SKINICIAN

    Why move up to Level 2?

    If you’ve used retinol before, then you might be ready to graduate to something a little more concentrated, for more targeted results. *If you have sensitive skin or haven't used retinol before, we recommend using our Level 1 before progressing to Level 2. When introducing Level 2 into your routine, we highly recommend buffering it by mixing with your night cream until your skin becomes used to the stronger concentration retinol.

    How do I use the Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2?

    This overnight treatment should be used in the evening after thorough cleansing and toning. Take 2-3 pumps and apply in circular movements to the face and neck, avoiding the delicate eye area, then follow with your SKINICAN  night cream.

    We recommend starting with the  Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 1 and progressing gradually up to Level 2. This allows your skin to become accustomed to retinol, reducing the risk of skin irritation. Once your skin is comfortable with  Level 1 Overnight Retinol Powerbalm you can then progress to Level 2. 

    To introduce our Overnight Retinol Powerbalm, you may want to buffer with our  Restoring Night Cream. To do this, start with 3 parts  Restoring Night Cream and 1 part Overnight Retinol Powerbalm. Gradually reduce the amount of night cream and increase the amount of the Retinol Powerbalm until the Powerbalm can be applied directly to your skin.


    As this is an overnight treatment, it should only be applied at night. During the day a daily day cream with  SPF should be applied as your skin can be more sensitive to sun exposure when using retinol.

    CAUTION: Due to the active nature of Retinol in our Overnight Retinol Powerbalm, it is recommended that it is not used for at least 5 days prior to sun exposure, waxing or advanced exfoliating/peeling treatments. Avoid contact with the eyes (in case of contact rinse thoroughly with water). Do not apply to irritated, broken or inflamed skin. Do not use in conjunction with other retinol products, or alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). Do not use if taking prescription acne medication

    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 and increasing collagen production and skin hydration. Retinol will also improve skin elasticity and skin tone for a younger-looking complexion, especially for those concerned with anti aging or premature ageing.

    What does the addition of peptides in the Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2 mean for my skin?

    Peptides are made up of amino acids and by adding powerhouse peptides to our formulation, we supercharge our formula for visible and more intense results.Tripeptide-1 works to stimulate collagen production in the skin which dramatically reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

    I’ve never used a retinol product before. Can I use this?

    Due to the key actives in this product, we do advise that you start your retinol journey with  Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 1. However, if you have a very tolerant skin or a thicker skin then you may be able to start with Overnight Retinol Powerbalm Level 2. It is very important that retinol is introduced to the skin slowly to reduce the risk of irritation.

    Will retinol help to actively reduce pigmentation?

    Pigmentation can be difficult to treat as there can be a number of reasons why someone can be experiencing pigmentation. As Retinol has been clinically proven to actively reduce skin pigment, introducing the Overnight Retinol Powerbalm will have beneficial effects on skin tone. We would also advise that you try to avoid anything that triggers your pigmentation, that you stay out of the sun and you protect your skin daily with anSPF. For quicker results, we suggest teaming your Overnight Retinol Powerbalm with a professional SKINICIAN Ageless AHA Lactic Acid at one of ourSKINICIAN salons.  

    Can I use the Overnight Retinol Powerbalm during pregnancy or whilst breast feeding?

    Due to the concentration of Retinol, this product is not safe for use during pregnancy or while breast feeding.

    If I have sensitive skin can I use retinol?

    If you tend to have skin sensitivity, we would advise that you use our  Overnight Retinol Powebalm Level 1 as this contains 0.1% Retinol. If your skin then becomes used to this level of retinol after using one full bottle, only then would we suggest progressing to our Level 2. When progressing to Level 2, we would recommend buffering with our  Advanced Restoring Night Cream for two to three weeks until the Level 2 can be applied directly to your skin.
