My Search For The Best Wrinkle Serum For Sensitive Skin
Although retinol is a proven, dermatologist-recommended ingredient that can help minimize wrinkles and fight fine lines and other signs of aging, I’ve tried a number of retinol products that were too harsh for my sensitive skin. My skin is both dry and highly sensitive, so most retinol products and night serums have made both problems worse.
But I’ve finally find an anti-aging retinol product that not only works, but that is gentle enough that I can use it regularly without my skin getting overly dry or irritated!
What Makes This Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum Different?
The first time I tried this Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum, I knew it was different from others I’d tried in the past. Then after a few months of using it, I was positive it was the perfect thing to add to my Timeless by Jillee skincare collection!
One reason why my Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum is uncommonly gentle compared to other wrinkle serums is that it contains soothing chamomile and carrot extracts. These calming ingredients help keep skin calm and comfortable, rather than red and sensitized.
I just put it on before bed, and I sleep more soundly knowing that the serum is working to promote healthy skin renewal all night long. And in the morning, I feel like my skin is refreshed and ready for a new day.
How To Use This Serum Safely And Effectively
1. Apply It At Night
It’s best to apply retinol products at night because wearing them during the day can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Applying it at bedtime—it is a night serum, after all—also gives the serum ample time to help renew your skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you get your beauty sleep.
2. Start Slow
Retinoids like the retinyl palmitate in my Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum help boost cell turnover to improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation. This process can sometimes cause dryness and redness to occur at first, especially if your skin isn’t acclimated to retinoid use.
The best approach is to start by using it once or twice a week, then gradually increase the frequency if your skin is tolerating it well. Some people find they can use it every day, but you may prefer to use it every other day—whatever feels best for your skin!
Bonus Tip: Retinol works even better when used as part of a routine that includes hyaluronic acid (which is the star ingredient in my Ideal Daily Moisturizer!)
3. Wear Sunscreen
As your Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum starts to boost cell turnover and skin renewal, the new skin underneath will be soft, sensitive, and in need of protection! So it’s important to wear sunscreen every day, ideally SPF 30 or higher.
What OGT Readers Are Saying About It
While I’m happy that I found a great anti-aging serum for my own use, I’m even more thrilled that other women are experiencing similar results and have found a product they love. Here’s what a few OGT readers have had to say about the Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum:
I have very sensitive dry mature skin. This night serum is fabulous. My skin feels so hydrated and soft and the smell is divine. This is my go to serum and it really works!Brenda K.
I have sensitive skin, and this serum with retinol does not irritate it at all. It sinks in nicely. I use it every night, and I have definitely seen some improvement already in my skin’s texture. I would definitely buy it again.Jill
I’m on my second bottle of this lovely serum. I’ve used several other products in my quest for a good night time ritual and this one has become a staple. I have dry, aging skin starting to wrinkle so hoping to keep the wrinkles to a minimum. No miracle products yet that I’ve found, but this one can only help! I totally trust Jillee’s products so am happy to continue with this skin care line.Carol O.
Since using this product, I have noticed a difference. Less wrinkles, more smooth skin! It glides on easily, not greasy at all. I’ve used other products and did not see these kinds of results. I use it nightly, recommend it highly!!!Jacqueline M.
I’m delighted to be able to share this serum with you after having such a positive experience with it. I love the way my skin looks and feels because of it, and I know you’ll feel the same way!
