FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 is a cruelty free product that I have thoroughly tested with a full eight weeks worth of skincare (and finished using all the product in the bottle in the process). Now, it’s time for an in-depth review of this new, innovative Retinol product.
Tweeted it’s arrival to FutureDerm: Nicki–a photo of your FutureDerm Retinol. Love bubble wrap 2 protect & nice red bow!
FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 is Cruelty free and Vegan!
FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 is not only cruelty free, but also vegan. What exactly does that mean? FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 is a type of skincare that contains absolutely no animal based ingredients.
Why Should You Use a Retinol?
Dermatologist rank Retinol as the number one ingredient to fight wrinkles. You should check with your skincare professional for a recommendation as to exactly what age you should start using a Retinol product.
Why Should You Use FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5?
*FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5% has research to prove that it will get rid of fine lines and wrinkles
The Retinol will also:
* Treat mild to moderate acne
Yes, unfortunately, even though you may no longer be a teenager, that doesn’t mean that you won’t have have acne—again, or, for the first time.
You can be prescribed, or use over-the-counter products that contain salicylic acid for acne, but that not only will not take care of your wrinkles, but also should not be used with Retinols! You’re also advised to not use Retinols with vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) or glycolic acid.
* Smooth your rough skin and help to make it clear and bright
* Help to treat sun spots
* Get rid of age spots
* Build your skin’s firmness and then maintain it
Is FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 Safe?
If you are pregnant or nursing you should not use this.
Yes, FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 has been extensively tested for both safety and effectiveness, and has been approved by physicians. If you use wax for hair removal on your face, do not use the Retinol for one week prior to waxing; also do not use Retinol if you are doing a skin peeling regimen. It is safe to use for all skin types.
You should always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, but especially so with a Retinol product.
How to Use FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5, and My Skincare Regimen:
I had no concerns prior to testing the FutureDerm Time Release Retinol 0.5. In addition to the fact that I only accept products for possible review from companies that I have thoroughly researched, I have previously been prescribed Retinol by my dermatologist.
At night, I cleansed my face. That’s the one routine that I never skip, no matter how tired! I made sure to shake the product really well before I used the recommended pea-size amount of the opaque gel. As I previously used Retinol products, there was no transitional period. Therefore, I didn’t have to follow the directions to limit my use per week; I applied it every night, and I had no issues at all.
FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 is Innovative!
The 0.5 means that it contains a 0.5% microencapsulated retinol. It’s in a gel formula, which, if you’ve ever tried creams, is absorbed much faster. It’s no exaggeration when I write that after applying the Retinol on my face, it absorbed into my skin in seconds. There was no sticky feeling afterwards, and I didn’t have to wait before applying a night-time moisturizer.
The FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol microencapsulated formula is designed to optimize the retinol activation process within the skin. This occurs for a full eight hours, making night time use optimal.
Bottom Line about FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5:
I highly recommend FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5.. Why? In addition to the fact that it’s cruelty free and vegan, there is genuine science behind the product. The research studies that were carried out proved that it was formulated in such a way that both the ingredients used, and the time-release delivery system, are safe and very effective. The gel didn’t feel sticky and very quickly absorbed.
There is truth behind the catchy, “Wake up to beautiful skin.” I did find that using the FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 left my skin just as smooth as my prescription Retinol. I was able to notice a difference in the tiny lines that had reformed because I stopped using my prescription Retinol–both to test other skincare products for my blog, and then to give the FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol as much of a clinical trial at home as I could.
I found FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 to be an affordable way to continue to make a difference in my skin’s appearance in a short amount of time; and that will keep improving it over a long period of time.
