If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times and once more just for giggles. There's a reason so many people areusing retinol. The anti-aging powerhouse is a vitamin A derivative that can seriously bust signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, while also smoothing and clearing your overall complexion to make you look younger and more naturally radiant. Yet with all of those benefits, it’s not surprising that retinol can be irritating, and it is recommended to start by using it only once or twice a week to build up your skin’s tolerance.
If you think that’s not often enough to justify donning a high price tag—as so many retinol products do—then a drugstore retinol cream is the perfect way to start your love affair with the age-defying skin care ingredient. There is fine line-erasing potential lying up and down the drugstore aisle, whether you have sensitive skin or you’re ready for the hard stuff.
