Retinal Night Cream combines many innovative and advanced regenerative active ingredients to help repair skin damage, restructure, improve clarity and boost skin density while increasing moisture and elasticity.

For Normal, Oily, Acne-Prone, Mature, Dry, Dull and Photo-Damaged Skin Types

Formulated with anti-wrinkle marine glycobiology, collagen stimulators, oligo-elements, peptides, antioxidants, zinc gluconate, hyaluronic acid and moisture-replenishing extracts, Retinal Night Cream targets fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation and uneven texture for healthy, smooth and visibly youthful skin.

  • Powered by Retinaldehyde - an encapsulated and ultra stabilized bio-active form of Vitamin A that gradually and effectively converts to Retinoic Acid within the skin in one step, thus bypassing irritation. Retinaldehyde is far less irritating compared to other Retinoids and has one less step involved in the conversion to Retinoic Acid. It is known to have strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Retinaldehyde boosts and protects collagen, increases cell turnover and enhances barrier function.
  • White Willow Bark, Lactic Acid, Azelaic Acid and Fulvic Acid further help minimize pores, reduce acne scarring, sun spots and pigmentation.
  • Zinc Gluconate - promotes skin healing, reduces hormonal effects on the skin and helps fight against acne.
  • Hydrolyzed fucoidan (Laminaria) Algae - acts as a repairing agent by stimulating metabolism of fibroblasts and collagen synthesis. Laminaria helps reverse the signs of aging by bringing back the skin’s structure and firmness.
  • Peptides - mimic the body’s own collagen production mechanism. This compensates for any collagen deficit in the skin and helps make the skin look younger, decrease wrinkles and helps create a lifting effect to the skin.
  • Helps reduce signs of photo-aging, pigmentation blemishes and scars.

    Returns & Exchanges

    Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (info@socialitebeauty.ca) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.
