MALASSEZIN

TODAY’S DISCOVERY. TOMORROW’S GOLD STANDARD.

Malassezin + retinol create synergistic benefits to quickly minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while supporting the skin barrier leaving skin smooth and glowing.

Malassezin is a powerful antioxidant that reduces free radical damage helping to decrease the breakdown of structural proteins in the skin leaving skin firmer and smoother.

Malassezin also supports and calms the skin barrier to reduce the retinization period. Encapsulated retinol works to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and diminish the appearance of pores, while the controlled release decreases sensitivity.

    So good! A must in your routine to prevent aging

    I’m in my mid 30s and I’ve been trying to find the right product to prevent any signs of aging. I’ve been looking for a good retinol and tried retinol synergist since I love the molecular hero serum so much. I did the skin cycling routine to slowly ease into retinol and the results after 6 weeks have been amazing. My skin texture looks so nice and I’ve really seen a difference in brightening of my face. I’m really happy with this product!

    Perfect for first time retinol user

    I was gifted this product through Gloss Angeles Confidential. This is the first retinol I’ve ever used and I’m so glad I started with such an amazing product. I started off using it 2x a week and then upped that to 3 (with off days in between because we follow directions). I had some redness after the first 5 applications but then that stopped happening. Since starting to use this retinol my skin has been smooth and firm and my skin tone has been more even with less daily redness. I’m starting to develop some smile lines and forehead lines and I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in those. This will definitely be a staple in my skincare going forward.

    Gentle yet effective retinol!

    This is not your typical retinol! I have VERY sensitive skin, so all previous retinols I tried stung my skin and left it dry and flaky. I cautiously started using this retinol once per week and experienced no irritation. I then moved up to twice a week and once again, no irritation. Today, I am using it every other day with no negative side effects. I am very impressed with this formula because I have never fully avoided a purging/adjustment period when using a retinol until now. This retinol has the consistency of a lotion, so it feels like applying a second moisturizer. I can't detect any scent which I appreciate because fragrances often make my skin angry as well. It absorbs fully and doesn't feel greasy or sticky afterwards. It also doesn't pill when layered with additional skincare. Despite being gentle, I've seen results from this retinol within four weeks! My usually rough skin feels smoother and softer. My muted skin is more radiant and glowy before I even apply products. I look forward to keeping this in my routine to see if it can tackle my fine lines. I was gifted this product from Gloss Angeles Confidential for my unbiased review.
