This Anti-Aging Eye Serum Is a Gentle Yet Effective Introduction to Retinol
Whether you're a skincare enthusiast or just starting to form a daily regimen, you've likely heard of retinol before. It's touted as one of the most powerful ingredients for minimizing wrinkles in skincare — but that level of effectiveness often comes with unwanted side effects, such as redness, dryness, or irritation. Luckily, there is a way to keep those negative reactions at bay while solely reaping the benefits of retinol.
Enter: the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum from Murad. It has a combination of three types of retinol technology, all of which correct existing fine lines and wrinkles while preventing future ones from forming. You can expect the serum to deliver fast-acting results while staying incredibly gentle around the eyes. Time-released retinol steadily absorbs into the skin, so little to no irritation occurs after applications. Because of this, the serum is a great introduction to retinol if you've never used it before, or simply struggle with it on your sensitive skin.

But that's not all it can do. Cotton wool grass extract delivers around-the-clock hydration to dry under-eyes, while marine kelp complex lifts sagging skin for a youthful, well-rested appearance. Whether you have dry, oily, combination, or sensitive skin, the serum will work wonders on a handful of skin concerns.
At least that's what Murad reviewers say. Many have noticed visible results on expression lines and dark circles after just one week of use. Others have remarked on how easy it was to introduce into their regimen nightly, and recommend it to anyone who has struggled with using retinol in the past.
"[It] improved areas around my eyes immediately," wrote one reviewer. "After a few weeks of use, I'd say everything in the description is accurate. It's worth the price. I've purchased so many other products with similar claims only to toss and have zero results."
"I love this serum so much! It feels so nice going on and virtually eliminates any dark circles or puffiness I have under my eyes," said another shopper. "I have been using it for years and am convinced it makes my 52-year-old face look much younger than had I not been introduced to it by a fabulous esthetician. I have changed many products over the years but this one is a keeper."
