Supercharged, rich night cream with retinol for dry skin types / 2 oz full size
Luzern’s new Nuit Retinol Crème Intensive is just the thing if you're looking for a high-achieving moisturizer and also crave a thick, rich night cream.
First of all, we love retinol — which, like Retin-A, is a derivative of Vitamin A — because it's the gold standard in anti-aging skincare. There are decades of data to attest to its efficacy and safety, and new formulations have rendered it less irritating. Even the more delicate flowers among us can enjoy its benefits: smoother skin, increased collagen synthesis, less hyperpigmentation, even the reversal of sun-induced damage from days gone by. (Fantastic news for those of us who might have tanned a tad too aggressively during spring break in college. For example.)
Nighttime is the ideal time to benefit from supercharged ingredients like retinol — your skin is in its rest and repair mode, free from its struggle with sun and pollution — and this nighttime moisturizer with retinol packs a serious punch. It blends 0.15% retinol with 0.5% bakuchiol, a plant extract that boosts retinol’s efficacy without irritation. And, because it’s a high-achiever Luzern formula, it’s also loaded up with other proven-to-perform goodies: long-chain hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump, short-chain hyaluronic acid to firm, a lipid complex to strengthen skin’s barrier, brightening Vitamin C and Swiss alpine botanicals, and the brand’s signature oxygenating, glow-boosting fermentation complex. In short, this pot of whipped buttery magic is perfection.
This Intensive version is similar to the Retinol Creme Luxe, but richer and thicker thanks to the addition of borage oil, honey, and beeswax. If you love Luzern's Force de Vie Creme Intensive during the day, you'll adore this at night.
How to Use
- Liposome-delivered Biodyne TRF (a complex containing saccharomyces lysate extract) assists the skin cells in their uptake of oxygen, improving collagen synthesis, increasing hyaluronic acid synthesis, and promoting cell renewal for healthy, luminous skin.
- Caprooyl Tetrapeptide-3 is a peptide that improves the appearance of wrinkles and the feel of elasticity.
- ALPPURE™ is a proprietary blend of seven Bio-Suisse organic botanical extracts and Vitamin C, designed to decrease the appearance of age spots and visibly even skin tone.
- Long-chain hyaluronic acid works as a magnet for moisture and plumps skin, while short-chain hyaluronic acid provides a long-term boost in collagen and elastin for improved firmness and fewer lines.
- A patented lipid complex, carefully designed to deliver botanically-sourced lipids in the same ratio as those found on healthy young skin, helps repair the skin’s protective barrier and rebalance hydration levels.
- Organic borage oil is rich in Gamma Linoleic Acid, which is a star at restoring moisture, suppleness, and smoothness to dry skin.
