bareMinerals Ageless Phyto-Retinol Face Cream Review

bareMinerals Ageless Phyto-Retinol Face Cream Review

A staple skincare within the Phyto-Retinol range, the bareMinerals Ageless Phyto-Retinol Face Cream is a skin-quenching anti-ageing moisturiser for all skin types. But what really makes it stand out from the rest? It uses a plant-based retinol-alternative to rejuvenate your complexion by significantly reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Read on to reveal all…


The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…

bareMinerals’ clean, game-changing vegan moisturiser is formulated with Phyto-Retinol, a natural solution that’s perfect for anyone who wants the age-defying benefits of retinol without the associated sensitivity that can sometimes occur. This plant-based alternative has been harnessed as it proves to be just as effective as retinol without causing redness, dryness or irritation.

Now, let’s get to the facts! The anti-ageing face cream is clinically shown to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines, while improving uneven texture and tone in just one week.

It also continues to target signs of ageing with continued use, while transforming hydration, texture and smoothness for a fresher, more youthful-looking complexion.


You Will Love This If…

If you’ve tried retinol in the past and found it doesn’t agree with your skin, or perhaps your skin is already prone to redness or irritation and you don’t want to agitate it, then looking for skincare with retinol alternatives can be a great idea. Plus, this face cream is also vegan and cruelty-free, so it’s great if you also look for skincare that’s kind to the environment as well as kind-to-skin.


Hero Ingredients:

This nourishing face cream promotes a smooth, plump and youthful look as protein peptides support natural collagen found in the skin. The moisturiser also offers skin a much-needed shot of hydration as hyaluronic acid provides both immediate and long-lasting moisture while helping to improve the look and feel of skin texture.

But as the name suggests, the standout ingredient in this face cream has to be bareMinerals’ Phyto-Retinol; this natural alternative to retinol is sourced from the Picão Preto plant to offer age-defying benefits without irritating the skin.


What Skin Type Is It For?

bareMinerals’ vegan face cream is suitable for all skin types – and all skin tones and ages, too.


What Does It Feel Like?

At first glance, bareMinerals’ Phyto-Retinol Face Cream has an incredibly rich creamy texture that almost looks like it’s been whipped, but it’s also really soft and melts into the complexion easily and without feeling heavy.


What Does It Smell Like?

The formula has a delicate, pleasant citrus-like scent at first, which calms the mind before the aroma dissipates as it blends in.


How Do You Use The Product?

Apply evenly to a dry, cleansed face both morning and night. Massage gently into the skin using upward strokes. For best results, mix and apply with bareMinerals’ skin-strengthening SkinLongevity Long Life Herb Serum.

Take care to avoid direct contact with eyes.


What’s Special About The Design?

The anti-ageing face cream is held in a white jar with a touch of lime green writing. Together with the matte silver lid, the jar has an understated finish that would look at home on any dresser.
