It is safe to say retinol is one of my very favorite skincare ingredients. Retinol improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles better than any other ingredient out there in my opinion. I’ve used it since my early twenties to help keep my skin looking firmer. It is the one ingredient I never leave out of my skincare routine. Over the past few months, I’ve studied the benefits of using serums that combine both retinol and bakuchiol– a vegan alternative to retinol. Studies show the two work even better when paired together.
goPure Beauty Actives Firm & Lift serum has both retinol and bakuchiol to help skin look firmer and more youthful. Bakuchiol helps stabilize and fortify retinol while helping with hyperpigmentation and an overall reduction in photo-damage. It is also a really strong antioxidant. When paired together the ingredients give skin a tighter, even complexion with a more youthful-looking glow. Both ingredients help with boosting collagen production and anti-aging. Basically, the two ingredients make each other better!
The serum also includes hyaluronic acid to help plump and hydrate skin. Hyaluronic acid is great for just about any skin type and concern since it helps bind water to the skin keeping a more hydrated appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles plump up instantly with HA. Pair that back to Retinol and Bakuchiol for firmer, fresher, and more youthful results.
I started using goPure Actives Firm & Lift Serum a week ago and I can already say I am impressed with the results. The acclimation period was minimal and the gentle formula did not dry or irritate my skin. My skin looks and feels fresher. I’ve noticed a boost in hydration; in the morning my skin still feels fresh and hydrated. My skin also seems to have a better “glow” to it. So far I am very happy with this serum.
Who Should Use Retinol and How?
I recommend using this retinol serum in the evenings only, on fresh cleaned but fully dry skin. Wait about 10 minutes before applying other products over it. You only need a dropper full and I took it down my neck. But, if you find your neck is sensitive just skip it and keep it on the face. Avoid the eye area completely. I use all of my normal skincare products with this serum (with the exception of Vitamin C–I only use that in the morning) with no issues.
goPure Actives Firm & Lift serum is made in the USA, cruelty-free, and free of harsh Preservatives, Parabens, Artificial Dyes or Fragrances. The scent is pleasant and I can’t really label it–it is just not a noticeable trait. The texture is smooth and not sticky at all. It absorbs quickly without any residue. This serum is great for ages 20+ and gentle enough for sensitive skin. Any skin type would be suitable for this serum and those looking for anti-aging, help with hyperpigmentation, or help with breakouts will really benefit. The serum retails for $36.
