Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that have been found to be effective in the treatment of acne and aging. They prevent pores from clogging and reduce acne scars as well. On the aging front, retinoids help by boosting collagen production, leading to plumped up skin, less visible fine lines and wrinkles, and blurred pores.
Like retinol, retinal belongs to the family of retinoids and thus offer the same benefits. Compared to retinol, retinal works on the skin faster.
The By Wishtrend Vitamin A-mazing Bakuchiol Cream contains 0.03% retinal and 1% bakuchiol, an ingredient that’s been nicknamed “plant-based retinol”. According to a study published in The British Journal of Dermatology, bakuchiol is as effective as retinol at targeting fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone while being less irritating on skin.
The By Wishtrend Vitamin A-mazing Bakuchiol Night Cream was created in collaboration with Wishtrenders. For the longest time, Wishtrenders have been requesting for an anti-aging product that gives visible results — and this product is it. With 0.03% retinal and 1% bakuchiol, it spurs the production of collagen to keep skin youthful. In just weeks, you’ll observe blurred pores and less obvious fine lines and wrinkles. To ensure skin does not dry out, it also features glycerin and hyaluronic acid. The good stuff doesn’t end there — you’ll also see niacinamide, fig extract, ceramide, and collagen in the ingredients list.
HIGHLY recommended for those with mild acne and aging skin.
Size: 30 g
To use: Apply all over face after cleasing and toning.
How often can I use this?
If you are new to retinoids, we recommend that you introduce the By Wishtrend Vitamin A-mazing Bakuchiol Night Cream into your routine slowly. Start using it twice a week, then gradually increase frequency to once a day. If your skin experiences sensivity, dial back frequency of use.
Can I use this during my morning routine?
Yes, but remember to apply sunscreen.
Why is it yellow? Does it contain artificial coloring?
No, it does not contain artificial coloring. The yellow color is because of the key ingredient used in the product, retinal. In fact, aside from being free from artificial color, this product is also ethanol-, artificial fragrance-, gluten-, and cruelty-free. It doesn’t stop there — this product is vegan-friendly, too!
Because the By Wishtrend Vitamin A-mazing Bakuchiol Night Cream contains retinal, a vitamin A derivative, it is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women.
