Layer this moisturizer over Retrospect’s C4-7 Intensive Serum for maximum antiaging benefits.

Retrospect

Birchbox Breakdown

You don’t need to be the next Einstein to distinguish the good antiaging creams from the bad ones. Quite a few don’t live up to their claims, but this brainy formula is truly effective at banishing existing wrinkles and delaying the onset of new lines. Backed by years’ worth of research and clinical studies, it’s made with a potent form of keratin protein that works with the biological systems of the skin to stimulate cell growth.

How it Works

It all comes down to Replicine™ Functional Keratin©, a patented ingredient that’s been shown to trigger collagen synthesis within your cells, as well as boost skin’s antioxidant defense systems and beat redness and inflammation. At the same time, shea butter, glycerin, and vitamins prevent the overall dryness that causes skin to appear more aged. The more dedicated you are to using this cream, the more your fine lines and wrinkles will diminish.

How to Use

At night, apply a thin layer to your face and neck after cleansing.

soft skin

Made my face feel really soft and hydrated! good product but just a little to much money for my nightly rituals.

Was ok

I really liked that this was unscented. As someone who is scent sensitive, this is actually a frustrating issue. The lotion itself was ok. I really didn't notice any difference in my skin which means it wasn't any better or worse than what I already use. I will probably use the rest of the samples, but nothing about it besides being unscented makes me want to buy it.

Makes my skin very soft and moisturized. It smells so nice and makes my skin feel soft, fresh, and rejuvenated.

Love it!

This product is great! It has definitely reduced the redness in my skin and made my skin very soft. My face feels much more moisturized and the moisture seems to last quite some time. I use it at night after I shower and it is great. I wish Retrospect had a day face cream, as I would definitely buy it.
The only drawback is the scent---it doesn't have any scent at all, which is neither good nor bad. It kinda smells like clay? I guess it would be nice if it had some sort of fragrance, but that also means it would probably have dyes or chemicals, so I'd rather just have it not smell like anything!

Love it.

Was going through particularly miserable mid-winter dry skin when this sample showed up -- within only four nights of use it had made a visible difference. Feels silky and luxurious to apply, and a little goes long way.

Hard to tell from sample size, odd smell
Sampled

It smelled odd. Smell isn't that big of a deal if the product works, but I couldn't really tell from the small sample size whether the product works.

Sample too small

I was not able to tell a difference because the sample size was too small. I hated the smell though.

Not great for oily skin
Sampled

First off, I didn't like the smell, second, I really need something that clears breakouts and don't need help with moisture...so this product just made my skin oily and clogged my pores.
