Hello my lovelies! I’ve missed you all. I have a couple of reviews I’m going to post while I have the chance.
Oz Naturals Super Youth Retinol Moisturizer
Product description courtesy of Oz Naturals:
“A powerful cocktail of antioxidants combine with Vitamin A to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and premature aging due to sun exposure. This results-oriented formulation fights free radical damage as well as restores and renews firmness, elasticity, and thickness to the skin. Vitamin A boasts a long list of clinically proven restorative, anti-aging, and youth-enhancing properties.”
The moisturizer is a heavy white (whipped?) cream that has a very soft mild scent – almost sweet, almost like a berry, but it is very mild so that it’s hard to discern the tones exactly.
The directions suggest to use it morning and night, but I find it to be and feel a little heavier than I’m used to for a morning moisturize – however, thus far, it hasn’t caused any clogged pores or excessive oiliness on the skin. It doesn’t leave a stickiness, but it does kind of leave a residue that you know is still there after application, if that makes sense. I have found it to be moisturizing and softening, especially to the dry areas of my face, and it adds a little fresh glowiness to the skin. But as of yet, no visible signs of diminishing lines and wrinkles, however, I’ve only been using it for less than two weeks.
I love that Oz Naturals products are cruelty free; mostly natural, organic, and vegan; made in the US; and does not contain alcohol, parabens, or sulfates. On the tube it says that it’s 97.9% natural. In addition to that, they seem to consistently include quality ingredients, and the ingredients list is very straight-forward, all words that are pronounceable (on the tube, any way; the box has their proper names, as well as their simple names) – which is always a good thing because you know exactly what you’re getting.
Ingredients (via tube): “Shea butter, retinol, hyaluronic acid, aloe, rose hips, green tea, chamomile, blueberry extract, cranberry extract, goji berry extract, acai berry extract, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, sweet almond oil, macadamia nut oil, mango seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, raspberry seed oil.”
You can also find a breakdown of the benefits of the key ingredients here (scroll down once at the linked page).
