REN Clean Skincare’s Youth Serum, a plant-based alternative to retinol suitable for sensitive skin, is a product I recently tried. Here’s my review of the product.
As someone with sensitive, combination skin, I was hesitant to try any product that claimed to be a retinol alternative. However, after reading about REN Clean Skincare’s clean ingredients and gentle formula, I decided to give it a try. I used the serum both morning and night as part of my skincare routine, and I noticed that it helped smooth out some fine lines and even out my skin tone. It also left my skin feeling moisturized without feeling greasy. However, I did not like the scent of the product and found the pump to be a bit difficult to use.
Bio Retinoid Youth Serum – Overview
A plant-based alternative to retinol that limits irritation and is suitable for sensitive skin is the REN Clean Skincare Bio Retinoid Youth Serum. It is designed to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles with the help of niacinamide and ceramide. The product is rated 3.9 out of 5 and has received 63 reviews so far.
Scent and Consistency
The scent of the product is mentioned as unpleasant by some reviews, while others find it tolerable. The serum has a milky white color and is lightweight in consistency. It is absorbed quickly by the skin, but some users with combination skin have reported feeling greasy after application. However, those with dry skin have found the product to be suitable.
Bio Retinoid: Ingredients
Rosehip oil, wheat extract, and cotton seed oil are among the natural ingredients of the Bio Retinoid Youth Serum. The star ingredient, bio retinoid, is listed further down the ingredients list, leading some users to question the concentration of the product. However, the serum has not caused any irritation for most users, making it a good option for those with sensitive skin.
Pump and Packaging
Issues with the pump not working well have been reported by some users, requiring multiple attempts to get the product out. However, others have found the pump to be easy to use and distribute the right amount of product. The serum comes in a 1 fl oz bottle, which some users find to be too small for the price.
Bio Retinoid: Effectiveness
The Bio Retinoid Youth Serum has helped smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improve skin tone, according to most users. However, some users have not noticed any significant difference in their skin’s appearance after using the product. It is important to note that results may vary depending on the user’s skin type and individual needs.
Bio Retinoid: Price
Some users find the price of $75 for the size of the product to be too expensive for the REN Clean Skincare Bio Retinoid Youth Serum. However, those who have seen positive results in their skin’s appearance and texture may find the price to be worth it. It is always important to consider personal budget and preferences when making purchasing decisions.
