Now that I’m approaching thirty, it’s important to me to take care of my skin. My friend told me all about retinol so I’ve been looking for a lightweight cream that I love. I’ve tried other products but so far all of them have left me feeling greasy and broke out my face (the joys of adult acne). So, I thought I’d try this Shiftage retinol face cream since it’s affordable and claims to be lightweight.
It comes in a plain box that would be easy to wrap as a gift. The dark blue lid covers a majority of the container and when removed there’s a wide opening for easy application.The cream has a very strong perfumed scent. It reminds me of my grandma. The bright side is that it fades quickly or maybe you just get used to it… The cream itself feels thick to the touch but once applied it absorbs nicely and still leaves my skin feeling clean.
I like to use these types of products at least thirty days before I review but honestly, after a week I already notice results. My dark circles are fading, my fine lines are gone, and my dry sun-damaged skin is now glowing. My only complaint is the scent, it’s just too musky for me. For that reason, I’ve mostly been using this as a night cream, but it still does exactly what I needed. I’ll definitely be buying again.
