Product Spotlight: Retinol Reset

When it comes to the effects of retinol on the skin, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Erum Ilyas said it best, “this is your pause button”. Adding Retinol Reset to your nightly skincare ritual can make a significant impact on your skin’s appearance. Consciously formulated to enhance, brighten and rejuvenate your skin, this powerhouse serum will inspire you to Reveal Your Tru Radiance

Why Retinol?

Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, has been a staple in skincare for decades. It's also highly regarded by dermatologists and estheticians as one of the most effective ingredients for youthful-looking skin. It comes in various potencies and we've developed a lightweight serum that strikes the perfect balance—powerful, yet gentle, and suitable for all skin types.

The benefits of retinol are extensive, ranging from reducing the visibility of fine lines and softening wrinkles, to fading the appearance of dark spots and improving the look of skin firmness and tone. Year after year, retinol remains the gold standard ingredient for its versatility and effectiveness.

Meet the Other Star Ingredients 

Our Retinol Reset features a carefully curated blend of potent ingredients designed to elevate your skincare experience. Let's explore what's inside of our formula and learn how our star ingredients work together to give you a flawless complexion.


Bakuchiol is a naturally-derived alternative to retinol, renowned for supporting brighter and more even-toned skin. This best-in-class botanical is best known for being gentler and more nurturing to a variety of skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin. Paired with retinol, bakuchiol enhances its impact, helping to achieve radiant and youthful looking skin.


Also known as vitamin B3, Niacinamide is a skincare multitasker that offers a range of benefits for your skin. It's a pro at improving your skin's texture, making it visibly smoother, and assisting with oil production. Plus, it's a key player in maintaining your skin's hydration and moisture retention. Think of niacinamide as one of your skin's best ingredients for an overall healthier, balanced, and resilient complexion.


Squalane offers deep, transformative hydration. Sourced from olives, its unique molecular structure allows squalane to effortlessly mimic the skin's natural oils. 

As a rich emollient, squalane acts as a moisture-locking agent that replenishes the skin and ensures lasting resilience to withstand environmental stressors. In essence, squalane's moisturizing properties make it a vital element in Retinol Reset, elevating the product's efficacy so your skin can look its best. 

Hyaluronic Acid 

Hyaluronic Acid promotes instantaneous hydration and visibly plumps skin. As a naturally-occurring substance in the body, Hyaluronic Acid works as a water-based hydration magnet, attracting and retaining moisture. This amplifies Retinol Reset, ensuring a sustained moisture balance and  radiant complexion.

Altogether, these ingredients create our nurturing formula, working in tandem to resurface, brighten, hydrate, and support a well-balanced complexion. The result is a transformative skincare experience that leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated and revitalized. 

When to use Retinol Reset in Your Skincare Ritual

Exposure to sunlight can diminish some of retinol's effects and it may even increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

Evenings are the prime time to introduce Retinol Reset into your nighttime skincare ritual, allowing the application to align with the body's natural renewal process and work its magic while we rest.

Ready for a glow that shines brighter than a moonlit starry sky? Here’s the ritual! Just massage 2–3 drops onto clean, dry skin before bedtime. And if you're new to retinol, take it slow:

Weeks 1–3: Use it twice a week and see how your skin reacts.

Weeks 4–6: If there's no unusual peeling or dryness, increase application to 3–4 times a week.

Weeks 7–9: Once your skin is comfortable, you can apply it every night or every other night.

Final Thoughts

Experience a transformative shift in your nightly skincare routine with the introduction of Retinol Reset. This new addition will not only give you your best skin ever, it'll also allow you to carve out an intentional moment of self-care so you can Reveal Your Tru Radiance day after day.
