One Serum To Fight All The Wrinkles #AzureNaturals

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Wrinkles - who wants 'em? Not me.  I'm fighting them with several ingredients, and I'm always happy when I find a serum that combines several of these wrinkle-fighters in one!

I think one of the ingredients that keeps my aging, oily skin under control best is Retinol.  Retinol has the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to activate elastin and collagen, which makes the skin look thicker and bouncier.  This amazing form of Vitamin A helps to control excessive oil production while renewing skin, making my skin smoother, and my pores appear a little cleaner and tighter.   
Helping the skin also look plump and youthful is another one of my favorites, Hyaluronic Acid.  This weird-sounding ingredient is a water-sucker, able to absorb over 1000x it's weight in water.  There are also ingredients to help soothe and heal the skin, like Aloe and Vitamin E, moisturizers like Jojoba Oil, and antioxidants like those found in Green Tea.  97% of the ingredients in this serum are natural, and 72% are organic.  There's no alcohol, parabens, sulfates, or GMOs, and this serum is cruelty-free, too.
I put this clear, odorless serum on at night, as the last step before my moisturizer.  If you're new to Retinol, start slowly with this serum, and apply it every few days to start.  I'm used to it, and I still felt mild stinging for the first week of using this serum.  No redness, flaking, or irritation, but some stinging.  I actually didn't mind at all, though.  It's not painful, doesn't last long, and reminds me that this serum is actually strong enough - with 2.5% Retinol - to actually DO something.

I love the color scheme of this packaging, and the Azure logo.  I did a negative space mani with stripes of Glitter Gal White Pointer and Big Smoke, then created the leafy logo using Butter London Sozzled mixed with OPI My Gecko Does Tricks.
Using this serum has really helped my skintone.  I have very few wrinkles, and my skin feels smooth and elastic.  When I used this serum, my skin cleared up a lot, and I had fewer pimples, which is always nice for a woman who left puberty behind many, many.... many years ago.  If you'd like more information or to purchase this serum, you can find it on Amazon, where it currently retails for $22.88 - and, they offer a 365-day no-hassle guarantee if you're not satisfied!

Have you tried a Retinol serum before?
