About the product

For best results, mix Overnight Retinol Repair with Buffer Cream and apply to cleansed skin at night, when cell renewal is at its prime. Once your skin is acclimated, you may use Overnight Retinol Repair prior to or mixed with your prescribed Dermalogica moisturizer. (Dermalogica. 2017)
I got this product for free when I signed up for a Marie Claire subscription, so I thought why not try it out. I don’t think this product is made for young women in their twenties, but you can’t start early enough with good creams to prevent ‘bad skin’. Well, this product is not my favorite. I think it’s very devious that you have to mix the Retinol Repair and the Buffer Cream together and then apply it on your skin. It’s not very easy to use. The first time I used it, I kind of liked it. It seemed that my skin was smooth the next day. But after the second time I used it, it started to irritate my skin. It also gave me redness and blemishes, so I’m not so pleased about this product. It is also very greasy and doesn’t really seem to sink into the skin. It is very expensive (€119,-) and to be honest, I don’t really believe that wrinkles can be reduced or prevented with skin products. Yes, you can slow down the process by being good for your skin, use sunscreen and drink lots of water. But actually preventing wrinkles is just impossible I think. Maybe if you are a little bit older, this product might ‘work’ for you, but it definitely doesn’t work for me.
