Does it work around the eyes?
Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 should not be used near the eyes.
The Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 website does not list any of its ingredients on its website, leading to speculation. Retinol may be in high concentration in Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 but it is listed as the twentieth ingredient, making it low in amounts. The first nineteen ingredients, excluding water, are actually lubricants and moisturizers that cannot reduce wrinkle appearance. Skinceuticals Retinol 1.0 does not contain any true wrinkle fighters. Without the right ingredients this $59 product can only improve skin through hydration.
