The Renew + Protect Duo

retinoid + sunscreen$50 $60

What it is: The heavy-hitters of a really effective skincare routine, in a duo that belongs together: your retinoid and SPF.

Why it's special:

  • Universal Pro-Retinol: Our easier-to-tolerate take on a traditional retinoid. It’s formulated with 0.5% pro-retinol to improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, blemishes, uneven tone, and texture—all while nourishing skin

  • Invisible Shield: You should never, ever use a retinoid in a routine without sunscreen. Invisible Shield is our broad-spectrum SPF that goes on completely clear, with a waterweight, serum texture, making it easy (dare we say enjoyable?) to wear and reapply every day

  • SPF and retinoids are probably the two most studied and scientifically-backed steps in your skincare routine. If you want a duo of products that’s really going to make a difference in your skin long-term, this is the one. Use Universal Pro-Retinol as part of your evening routine (start with one to two nights per week and increase slowly), and follow up with Invisible Shield every morning

  • If you want to learn more about retinoids, what exactly they can do for your skin, and how to fit one into your routine, you can read up here

How to Use :

  • For your evening routine only! Smooth a pea-sized pump over freshly cleansed and patted-dry skin. Wait around 15 seconds for it to fully absorb, and then follow with a moisturizer. Start with one or two nights per week and increase slowly (you can work up to using it every night). Since retinoids may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, always use sunscreen the following morning.

  • Warnings: For external use only. Keep out of eyes. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. This product may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, use sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product. Stop use if excessive peeling or irritation occurs.

  • Important reminders: For sensitive skin types, apply a hydrating serum (like Super Bounce) before Universal Pro-Retinol, in addition to following with a moisturizer. If you’re new to retinoids, try patch testing on a small area (like your wrist) before committing to using all over your face. If you’re also using Alpha Hydroxy Acids or other chemical exfoliators (like Solution), acne treatments (like Zit Stick), or other retinoid products consider alternating nights with Universal Pro-Retinol.

    Universal Pro-Retinol’s bottle is designed with an airless pump system (it vacuums the product up instead of pumping it through a tube or straw). This uses less plastic, and helps keep ingredients fresh and stable. Due to the airless pump and the formula’s rich texture, it can take 10-20 pumps to get the product going the first time. You can also loosen the cap (don’t fully remove it), and screw it back on tightly to ensure a good seal on the pumping mechanism.

Cruelty free, dermatologist tested, and formulated without fragrance

1.18 fl oz / 35 ml

Key Ingredients:

0.5% Retinyl Sunflowerate: A retinol derivative composed of retinol and sunflower seed fatty acids. It’s a new innovation in the world of retinoids, found to be less irritating than its predecessors, yet just as efficacious—it’s shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, texture, and blemishes. We put 0.5% in our formula (enough to get the benefits, while still being tolerable for all skin types)

Stevia Extract: Sourced from the stems and leaves of the Stevia plant, it helps smooth the overall appearance of your skin, specifically working on the fine lines. Think of it as retinol’s naturally-derived supporting actor

Mondo Grass Root Extract: A plant-derived extract from the Ophiopogon Japonicus Root, it acts as a humectant to help your skin hold onto moisture. This keeps your skin conditioned, and helps minimize unwanted irritation that often comes along with using a retinoid
