After hearing about this cream on a highly-reputable Dermatologist's blog, I decided to purchase it to use before applying my Retin-A at night. Prior to using this cream with my Retin-A, I was unable to tolerate the medication. As long as I apply the Replenix cream first, I have virtually no irritation at all. And this is not because the Replenix Cream is blocking the Retin-A; it is instead acting as a buffer for the medication. My skin really loves this stuff and I am so excited that I am able to now use the Retin-A for anti-aging! As for my nighttime routine, I wash my face with a gentle cleanser, immediately apply the Replenix Cream, wait 15-20 minutes, then apply my Retin-A. In the mornings, I use the Replenix cream under all of my other products to act as a potent anti-oxidant against daily skin stressers. And I always use sunscreen/sunblock to protect my skin from premature aging and skin cancer! Why take such great care of your skin and then throw it all away by not using sun protection?!
This is a great product when used infrequently and as directed. I only use this 3-4 times per year making sure to soak it in 80% strength alcohol beforehand to insure it is free of bacteria. Use of the roller allows deeper penetration of anti-aging products and an improved skin texture.
Ohh la praire, why do i hate and love you so much at the same time. listen, i am not a luxury brand chaser ( iused to be when i was young, but then i grew older and wiser). in recent years i stoped buying skin care based on names and brands and starting researching the ingredients! learning what is REALLY best for the skin. so i have been using THE BEST anti-aging skin ingredients that science has to offer these days. im high on retinoids,various acids (salicylic,glycolic,and tca acids),lots of anti-oxidants (mainly vit-c),peptides and stem cells. but even though i use the best skin care, i still needed a GOOD moisturizer. this is such an amazing moisturizer. what i love the most about it is the COSMETIC effect it gives to the skin. it gives the most amazing dewy glow to the skin. no sparkle! just a beautiful glowing sheen to the face. pure radiance that i could not find with so many other moisturizers i have tried. i really am not a fan of LP but this and the radince night cream are my two loves i will not be without. i use it at night over my retin-a and in the morning i use the radiance night cream (the radiance night is actually lighter in texture thus i prefer that one for the day time and under my sunscreen). if you can buy just one cream from lp then this would be the one. i have oily\combo skin and this (as opposed to so many other rich creams i have tried) did NOT break me out and it felt really nice on my skin. it is rich but feels lght on skin and soaks in. i love the scent (even thought perfume is NOT good for your skin!). and i love the SUPER GLOWING effect this gives to the skin. forget la mer, forget sisley,forget revive,forget natura bisse. this cream is it if a glowing complexion and hydrated skin is what you are after!
