But, if you want to work with your biology, protect your skin barrier, and stay moisturized in a budget-friendly way, we have some options that are on sale or have promos!
Murad Retinol Renewal Value Set -$67.20 with code BF2022
Original value: $96
Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum -$64.40 on Murad website with code BF2022
Original value: $92
This retinol within both products has triactive technology, meaning it releases slowly into the skin, and it’s more stable. They’ve also got ingredients that are hydrating and soothing to fine lines and wrinkles like cotton wool grass extract. They say ‘it gives 24 hours of hydration," but Cassandra wouldn’t say that.” These two are a great bundle. Specifically, the night cream contains wild yam extract, yeast amino acids, and glycerin. These ingredients deeply hydrate the skin and support elasticity as well as barrier repair.
Good for Hyperpigmentation & Fine Lines
Community Sixty-Six Retinol Resurfacing Night Moisturizer - $35 & free shipping
Cassandra would recommend this for fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven color. This has licorice and retinol. Licorice root extract contains glycyrrhizin, which is a very potent antioxidant. When used topically, the antioxidants protect your skin against damage from the sun's UV rays and free radicals. Therefore, licorice can contribute to protecting the skin’s elasticity.
Good for Pores & SPF & Fine Lines/Wrinkles
Charlotte Tilbury Invisible UV Flawless Primer SPF 50 - $55 (20% off on orders over $80 with code Magic1)
Because this has such a primer consistency, it pairs wonderfully with the summer Friday cleanser. If you have mature skin and fine lines, the primer consistency smoothes over the skin and gives you a hydrated, dewy glow finish. This SPF is great for people who wear makeup, and it even works for oily-prone skin. But because of the dewy finish, it works best for mature or dry skin.
