Advanced retinol serum with time release technology

7 Reviews


This powerful serum combines two types of retinol with time-release technology for a more gentle delivery system. You will see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.

A cocktail of powerful antioxidants including apple stem cell extract, edelweiss, and green tea, rejuvenates the skin by preventing and correcting sun damage.

Alchimie Forever's signature ingredient, the European blueberry, in synergy with hydrating hyaluronic acid, jojoba, and collagen-boosting red clover, calm the skin and help to minimize side effects typically associated with retinol.

on try / i think i'm NOT capable of rating as the product is still on try

If i use Advanced Retinol Serum 0.75 once a week, skin reaction is unnoticeable. Tried twice a week... the effect is noticeably stronger in terms of flaking and redness... retinol is powerful. Before this try, used Mene & Moy AHA 30% Advanced C cream daily and it worked perfectly, but i started AHA with Neostrata 15% AHA for quite a while. Dr. Leonardo Luigi Polla gave me that advice. After years of Neostrata started with Mene & Moy 30%. Tried both retinol 0.75 & AHA 30%... skin reaction was powerful... Tried Vitamin C 15% after Retinol twice a week ... the reaction was amazing in terms of redness... / to Sum it all up, customers must try and choose the best for their skin... or turn towards Skinceuticals Custom dose... / i didn't try yet. I think customers MUST try and choose, they're have their part of responsability : )))) !!!! / video :

So far so good

I have really dry and sensitive skin, so I was a bit tenative about trying a retinoid. I've buffered it with the Calming Cream and although I've had dry patches, it's been tolerable. I'm still only using this once a week and will slowly build up to either no buffering or two times a week. I would recommend. High quality!

Great Results

I stopped using retinol based products for several months and noticed my fine lines were showing up again. Decided to try Alchimie and within two applications I saw the difference in my skin. The fine lines and wrinkles were less prominent and the overall appearance of my skin was healthier and more radiant. I didn't experience any irritation from the retinol and not only will reorder this product, but enjoyed the free samples and will be trying some other products as well.

advanced retinol serum

It is more like a lotion than typical serum. my face has a white film on it that flakes off by the end of the day. I really wish there was a 30 day money back guarantee, therefore my money wouldn't be wasted. Also feel like there are more wrinkles in- stead of fewer.

Skin Happy and Wrinkle Free

OK - My skin isn’t wrinkle free, but rather less wrinkly. :-) Been using once a week and no peeling. Yay! Going to increase to 2x/week. Love that is feels lighter than other retinol lotions I’ve tried!! I think it’s because yours is a serum, vs a lotion, which I love.
