Experience the wonders of retinol with Miracle 10, Murad, RoC and Neutrogena!

If you're all about fast acting skincare then retinol is one of the best ingredients you can use to see quick results! Of course there is always a downside and in the case of retinol, it can be irritating so when using it's not unusual to experience  redness, peeling, breakouts and sun sensitivity - in other words, expect your skin to look a bit worse before it looks a lot better! Some great retinol choices include:

Miracle 10 Retinol Treatment 30 - 30ml - $82 - combines the power of Vitamin-A for refining, firming, and rejuvenating the skin with a unique blend of botanical emollients. the anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and skin strengthening properties allow for clearer, smoother, more radiant-looking skin while a patented encapsulation system ensures 100% efficacy of the product's active ingredients. Contains: retinol - for gentle yet effective exfoliation; seed oil and botanical extracts - provide anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties; and vitamins E, A, C, E & B - to help soothe, hydrate and strengthen the look of the skin. The results include: appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne are diminished, skin appears firmer and clearer while inflammation and redness are reduced.

Available at Miracle 10 retail locations and online at and The Shopping Channel -
Murad Age Reform Time Release Retinol Concentrate for Deep Wrinkles - 15ml - $68 - clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles. Allows you to spot treat wrinkles thanks to a unique precision tip that concentrates power on deep wrinkles in targeted areas while sustained-release retinol reduces the look of deep wrinkles, and supports natural cell turnover and resilience. This highly focused formula softens and smooths on contact, leaving skin nice and refreshed. Hyaluronic acid and ceramide-3 attract and maintain essential moisture.  restore a smoother, more youthful appearance

Available at Sephora, and
RoC Retin-Ox Correxion Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Serum - 30ml - $50 - an ultra-concentrated serum that smoothes the look of deep wrinkles to reactivate the youth of your face with a fast acting formula that contains: retinol - to speed up cell growth and quicken the pace of rejuvenation in the upper layers of the epidermis, all while increasing skin density and minimizing the appearance of inelasticity; hyaluronic acid - to plump and smooth the look of wrinkles by binding water to the skin for extra moisture; and biopeptides - help boost the functioning of the retinol. In 4 weeks even deep wrinkles are visibly reduced and skin looks regenerated.

Available now at drug stores across Canada.
All of the retinol products are best used at night but keep in mind the sun sensitivity that I mentioned earlier and expect that they are going to make your skin sensitive to sunlight the next day so it's extra important that you remember to apply a sunscreen and of course the easiest way to do that is with a daily moisturizer that already has one in there like:

Neutrogena Moisture Oil-Free SPF 30 Facial Moisturizer - 73ml - $17.99 - with a lightweight, non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly and provides effective UVA/UVB protection, as well as long-lasting moisturization for softer, smoother, younger-looking skin.

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
