What is Retinol and Should I use It? - My Week using Watts Beauty

As as Woman that is older, skincare is always top of my list for keeping my skin feeling and looking healthy and young. Finding good skincare products however can be super difficult! Think about it, there are so many companies and products out there now, you don't know what will do what anymore!!! As a beauty blogger, I get the privilege of testing tons and tons of different products all the time. So, when it comes to Organic vs. Non-Organic Skincare, I have to say, there are some true difference that I can now bring to light.

As you can see the girls were over and all were acting like it was Christmas when they saw the box. I let Meghan do the photo shoot, even though she knew this was my box LOL. She is such a ham.

So Lets get to some interesting facts I learned over the past 10 days.....

What is Retinol?

Knew products come out daily, so Knowledge these days is power when it comes to anti-aging skin care products. Tell me, would you apply a cream all over your face if you didn’t know exactly what it did? So many people do! But, if they knew what they were putting on their face, they may think twice before doing it again.

Retinols vs. Retinoids

OMG Seriously I was getting so confused...Retinols, retinoids, Retin-A—what is the deal? I kept getting these different name, but leading all to the same articles, so If you’re confused by these similar-sounding names, join the club.

In my research, Several Dermatologists say that retinoids are the category name of these vitamin A derivatives, but that retinol and retinoids vary in their chemical structure. Basically, retinol (and their properties) are in over-the-counter creams and serums, but a retinoid can only be prescribed by your doctor.

What does it do for Your Skin

Basically, Retinol is packed with anti-aging benefits. Retinol stimulates the production of new skin cells, help to fade dark spots. Very good ones will renew your skin, giving it a youthful glow. It can help treat acne, reduce the appearance of fine lines and help with skin discoloration. In the 10 days of using Watts Beauty Clear, Smooth Skin Retinol Serum and the reason I choose this one out of the box of goodies, was the curiosity of what this would do myself.

10 Days Using Watts

Why I decided to start talking about this after 10 days, is because that is when I noticed that the bags under my eyes were barely noticeable anymore. This to me, was the main factor in my love for this serum.

I will be diving into their other items over the coming weeks, so you will see this post refreshing to the top of the page (Or maybe a new post, if there is enough to talk about) haha that is funny, as if I couldn't find something to say. LOL

Anyways, as I get older, I have noticed every tiny thing wrong with my face and it makes me very self conscience. I have to tell myself constantly that people do not stare at tiny flaws and most look at the entire face, but deep down it is always there bugging me. I am positive most women can relate to this. For me, it is the fine lines around my mouth, the bags under my eyes and the creases in my forehead that have not gotten under my skin.

When I decided to grab the retinol serum and start with that, I wanted to research one thing at a time and truly see what each item would do and what benefits it had for me. I know everyone is different, so what works for others, doesn't always work for me.

Doing all this research, I found bloggers that loved to brag about the benefits, and only one that talked about how it was not good for her skin. This didn't make me skeptical to try it, as I am a beauty blogger and that is part of the risk, but it did make me read her article to see why. Then after reading it and feeling a tad more confused, I decided to dig more into her blog, where I found where really didn't like any products very much. So, I chalked this one up to someone that is hard to please.

I will be continuing to use this serum and truly hope that they continue showing me these results, as I am truly feeling more confident in my looks because of this lately.

Oh and by the way, I was using it each morning with my favorite beauty tool, my Jade Roller!

If you have watched my tutorial on that, you know I keep it in the freezer and pull it out each morning to use on my face and neck. I added this serum to the roller and proceeded to gently massage it into my face. I knew, someone would eventually ask if I had a procedure, so before I closed, I thought I would throw that in.

By the way, compared to all the beauty products I try, this is one of the most inexpensive ones I have ever seen, so I am super excited that I will not be going broke when my bottle runs out, LOL!

Now, I am super excited to announce, that I have reached out to Watt's beauty and asked if I could offer an incentive to my followers to try this and they instantly sent me over a 25% off discount code for all of my awesome fans to use.
