What is it: This two-piece set from Paula's Choice includes the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment--a lightweight, creamy lotion containing 1% retinol to help reduce the appearance of the signs of aging--and Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturizer--a specialized moisturizing face cream that relieves stubborn dryness with hydration.
Who is it for: Anyone concerned with the appearance of the signs of aging. Ideal for those with dry/very dry skin.
Why is it different: Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment is formulated with licorice, oat, burdock, willow bark, vitamins C and E, and retinol. It features Paula's delivery system in a smoothing, hydrating lotion base.
Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturizer is a blend of carefully researched emollients that help to provide skin with moisture.
How do I use it: Limit initial use of Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to every other night, then finally each evening as tolerated. Apply a pea-sized amount to face, neck, and chest after cleansing and/or toning (sold separately). Avoid the lips, eyelids, and immediate eye area. Can be used on the perimeter of the orbital bone, if desired. Follow with eye cream and moisturizer, as needed.
Apply Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturizer to face, neck, and eye area after cleansing, toning, and exfoliating.
