Spring is finally here and my skin is celebrating. The cold weather and indoor heat are especially harsh on my skin. My rosacea flares up leaving me with angry red skin. During a flare-up, I have to use the most gentle cleanser and moisturizer until my skin heals. When I am not using exfoliators, my skin gets very dry and flaky. I was going to start using my retinol moisturizer for a few days to smooth out my skin. I noticed I was running low on my retinol moisturizer and just before I went to reorder, I was given the opportunity to try Oz Natural Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer.

*Before I test a product, I stop using exfoliators for a few days so I get a good read on the test product.

I started by following my normal daytime routine:

– cleansing
– skipped toner
– skipped serum
– applied eye cream
– applied Oz Natural Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer
– applied BB Cream (has SPF)

The first thing I noticed was there was no scent. The texture is smooth and absorbed well. I applied my BB cream and went about my day.

I followed my regular night routine:

– cleansing
– skipped toner
– skipped serum
– applied eye cream
– applied Oz Natural Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer
– applied night cream

The next morning, my face felt so smooth. Normally when trying a new exfoliant, it will take a few days before I notice smoother skin. This retinol moisturizer worked overnight. After using the moisturizer for a few days, I noticed no irritation or redness. My skin is smooth, soft, and very moisturized.

What sets this retinol moisturizer apart from others I have used is the addition of Vitamin E, Vitamin B5, and Shea Butter. I am very pleased with the results I am experiencing with Oz Natural Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer. OZ Naturals is a brand I am well familiar with. I am a fan of their eye creams and now a fan of Oz Natural Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer. Here is some information about Oz Natural Super Youth 2.5% Retinol Moisturizer.

Key Ingredients:

Vitamin A: Vitamin A works to naturally exfoliate dead skin cells, aiding the skin’s cell turnover rate. Regular use can lighten hyperpigmentation, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, combat aggravated, ruddy skin tones and improve overall tone and clarity.

Hyaluronic Acid: With the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid pulls moisture deep into the skin and holds it there. Regular use of Hyaluronic Acid aids in plumping the skin to appear more youthful and smooths skin for a softer, silkier feeling.

Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant that works to neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage, Vitamin E protects, repairs, soothes and moisturizes the skin.

Green tea: Green tea has well-documented antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce skin damage by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation.

Panthenol (Vitamin B5): Panthenol is a natural humectant, which penetrates the lower layers of the skin to help retain moisture and provide a soft, smooth appearance. Its exfoliating properties also fight free radicals and promote new, healthy skin cells.

Jojoba oil: Jojoba oil is loaded with essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamin E, and sterols (lipid-like compounds that reduce inflammation and improve skin metabolism). Because is it rapidly absorbed by the skin, it makes a highly effective moisturizer and can improve the health and appearance of dry, flaky skin as well as oily, acneic skin.

One thing you MUST do when using a retinol product is to wear sunscreen. Your skin is more susceptible to sunburn so do not forget to use a sunscreen during the daylight hours.
