Super Facialist Retinol range - review

Retinol (more commonly known as vitamin A) is one of the best skin transforming and rejuvenating ingredients. Its effects include minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and enlarged pores, improving uneven skin tone, it helps the skin look firmer and more glowy thanks to boosting collagen production, speeding up cell turnover and unclogging pores. Retinol is basically best friend of aging skin.
 
Retinol also can be broken down into other forms of vitamin A, such as retinyl palmitate, retinaldehyde, retinyl retinoate, and retinyl proprionate, which are often found in skincare products. They're not as powerful as pure retinol but gentler to use on regular basis yet they still work their magic on the skin, just a bit slower.
 
I've tried couple of products with Vitamin A derivatives (retinoids) and liked how they worked for my skin so I was very excited to start testing the whole Retinol + range from Super Facialist. I've tried a few products from the brand before (post) and really liked them so I had high hopes for the new range.

For every budget: facial mists

If you had a look through my beauty stash you would see a good mix of expensive and very affordable products, from skincare to makeup. I'm not a makeup/skincare snob, I think there are fantastic products in a drugstore and there are high end products not worth their price tag. And while usually more expensive products, especially skincare, are higher quality, with better ingredients list, it doesn't mean you can't get good products on a smaller budget.
With all these in mind I thought I'll start a new series on the blog where I'll share with you three products in one category, each at different price range, all good quality, which I enjoy using and would repurchase them. They're not 'dupes' but great alternatives to suit different budgets. And today we're talking facial mists.
