Transform your skin while you sleep for a dramatically softer, smoother, younger-looking complexion overnight. Formulated with the RetAsphere Smart Release™ Carrier System, this innovative, leave-on micro peel gently infuses skin with pure Retinol to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and speed up cell renewal. A groundbreaking combination of 10% Glycolic Acid and Lactose helps resurface skin to a smooth, soft texture and reduces the look of pores. The result: visibly reduced wrinkles, restored radiance, and skin that appears softer, smoother and younger-looking by morning!

  • The RetAsphere Smart Release™ Carrier System encapsulates pure Retinol in a lipid shell so it can penetrate deep into the epidermis - where it is most effective – to help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.  This patent-pending technology utilizes time-release absorption and melts gently into the skin to help prevent irritation and dryness.
  • 10% Glycolic Acid derived from sugar cane and beets, gently exfoliates the uppermost layer of skin to reveal a fresh, renewed complexion instantly
  • Natural Lactose helps skin renew at an optimal rate to help prevent dryness and flaking
  • Fast-penetrating Hyaluronic Acid delivers a surge of moisture to visibly plump and smooth the skin’s surface
  • Licorice Extract and Arbutin help to brighten skin and help diminish the appearance of discoloration

LOVE THIS! forever repurchase
I've tried a lot of toners and serums but this is basically a toner and serum hybrid bc of the acids and retinol. I LOVE IT. Two times better than good genes. The only problem with this is that I won't be able to use it when I'm pregnant bc of the retinol but that's only for a short period. This is one of the few things that'll work miracles overnight to lighten up any discoloration on my face. I use it every other night as recommended but sometimes I do use it two times in a row and I don't find it that drying. I do layer an oil and good moisturizer and I make sure to use this only at night. This is my first review for a kate somerville product and I'm so excited to try the rest of the line!
I love the pump and the tube too!

Great Addition to my Routine
I've been using (happily) RetAshpere 2 in 1 night cream for over a year. While completely satisfied with those results - I decided to give this product a try. I use it every other night, alternating with the 2in1, and I am thrilled with the results. Smooth clear skin!I

Many Pros, One Con
I have been alternating between this product and RetAsphere 2-in-1, and my skin has never looked/felt better. This has reduced the look of my pores and has made my skin smooth. The only issue I have with this product, hence the 4 stars, is that it dries my skin out, especially around the chin area. When I use moisturizer the morning after using this product, my face stings a lot. Because I use this every other day, the drying out is not that big of a deal to me. If I had to pick between this and RetAsphere 2-in-1, I would choose the latter as it doesn't dry out my skin.

I purchased at the blemish kit I have received this as a sample and I applied this at night as instructed, next morning I woke up, I had rashes and bumps all over my neck. Its been 3 weeks now and my rashes seems to be getting worst and my neck is drying up. I do not have sensitive skin and this is the first time with an allergic reaction. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Although I do not have anything good to say about this product, I do love the blemish kit. I do not have severe acne but I do occasionally get one cystic acne on my cheek every now and then.
