Texture Tuesday – @bareMinerals Ageless Phyto-Retinol Face Cream

January 19, 2021

Thank you to @bzzagent for sending me the @bareminerals Ageless Phyto-Retinol Face Cream ($62 for 1.7 ounces –! I have a soft spot in my heart for anything @bareminerals because it’s the brand that made me fall in love with makeup years ago!

What it claims:

🔘 Our clean, game-changing vegan face moisturizer is formulated with Phyto-Retinol (a plant-based retinol alternative), a natural, plant-based retinol alternative as effective as retinol without causing redness, dryness or sensitivity

🔘 This anti-aging face cream is clinically shown to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and uneven texture and tone in just 1 week

🔘 The gentle yet potent formula also stars Protein Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid which work together to improve hydration, texture and smoothness for fresher, more youthful-looking skin

🔘 Made for all ages, skin types and skin tones

My verdict?

As you may be able to tell from the photo, the texture of this is fabulous! It’s thick and creamy to the touch, but doesn’t feel heavy and greasy on the skin. I also love the scent. It’s light and citrusy, which makes applying it to my skin in the morning especially enjoyable! Also, and most importantly, it is an excellent hydrator! I have worn it under and over makeup and in both scenarios I have zero dry patches and my skin is moisturized all day long. I am not sure if the Phyto-Retinol is working yet, but I look forward to seeing what it can do with prolonged use!
