Finding Cruelty-Free, Affordable Skin Care Products, and having powerful ingredients can sometimes seem like a challenge. Luckily, British brand Facetheory ticks all three boxes and its Regenecalm Pro serum, which has over 1,500 rave reviews on its site, lives up to the hype.
I’ve always been hesitant to add retinol to my skincare routine for no real reason other than that it seemed intimidating. Since I love a lot of other FaceTheory products (I use their lip balm and face mist multiple times a day!), I decided to try their favorite retinol treatment – and I’m glad I did. report that I was pleasantly surprised.
I love incorporating serums into my routine and I really liked the feel of this one. It wasn’t sticky or too slippery, and it didn’t budge under my moisturizer. The all-natural formula, which includes ingredients like stabilized vitamin C, licorice extract and dill extract, is super potent, so a small amount is enough.
As with many retinol products, the brand recommends building your tolerance over time. As a retinol beginner, I used Regenecalm Pro Serum twice a week during my nighttime routine for the first two weeks, then increased to three applications per week. My skin is slightly sensitive to certain ingredients, so I was pleased to see that this product didn’t cause any breakouts or breakouts.
After a few weeks there was a noticeable difference in the appearance of my skin. I found myself opting for makeup-free days most often. I didn’t have as many random breakouts as usual, and my skin texture was much more even.
