Age-Radiance Complex
40 Carrots
Retinol-Rich Skin Care contains our proprietary Betanol Age-Radiance Complex. This unique Beta-Carotene, Retinol-rich complex starts with Beta-Carotene from natural skin-loving carrots. Then we add Retinol (Vitamin A) the proven ingredient dermatologists recommend most to de-age, brighten and even out your skin tone, while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Our Retinol is less irritating than its prescription form, giving you a gentle, natural solution for younger looking skin.

My Opinion:
This moisturizer is very strongly scented, it has the scent of a very sweet mango, and although I do like mango scented stuffs, this was just a bit overwhelming. Fortunately the scent didn't last, and it went away after several minutes.

This product does take a few minutes to absorb, but once dried it doesn't feel sticky at all. Even though it isn't sticky, I've only been using this at night because I remember reading somewhere that retinoid is sensitive to sunlight and you should only use it at night.

I've been using this for nearly 2 weeks, and although I did not notice any major improvement on my skin texture, I really do like how it feels on my skin.
