Apply an even layer to dry, freshly cleansed skin, PM only. Avoid using around eye area. Wait 1-2 minutes and follow with your evening moisturizer. Retinoids may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so don’t forget your daily SPF. 

For new retinoid users: Start by applying Aqua A every other night for the first few weeks to see how your skin acclimates before building up to daily use.  It's recommended to avoid other retinoid products (including retinoid acid + retinol) while using Aqua A.

*If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your doctor about using a topical retinoid before use.

    Retinoid Renewing Serum

    I’ve been using this serum nightly and am really liking it. At my age (72) nothing is going to make my skin perfect, but I feel this serum has actually evened out my skin tone. I would definitely buy this again!

    Uncertain on it's effectiveness

    This is a nice serum that has a beautiful scent and seems to be very thought-out in it's formulation. After using two bottles of it since it launched (so about 6 months) I can't say it made a drastic difference in my skin, though I do believe the ingredients are all helping in some way. It was very gentle and I did not experience any adverse reactions. I may possibly need a stronger retinol for my skin type and concerns. I think it is a good introductory retinol and is suitable for those with sensitive skin.

    Very effective

    I've never used any other retinoid products so I can't compare, but I have been so pleased with the visible results from Aqua A that started even in the first week of using it. It is very light with a pleasant scent (of course- it's Leahlani) and it absorbs wonderfully. My skin tone is more even, my skin feels smoother, and I really do have a glow after using it consistently.
