Would you believe me if I told you that retinol has pretty magical transformative powers when it comes to your skin? Retinol is one of the most studied and highly touted anti-aging ingredients on the market; it transforms the look and feel of your skin by encouraging collagen production and increasing cell turnover. We’ve concocted a magical combination of science and nature in the form of Youth Fairy retinol moisturizer, and it’s perfect for beginner retinol users. Let me share a little story:
Once upon a time, there was a soul by the name of Fleur, who cared about her planet, taking special care to seek out products that were clean and full of nature’s finest botanicals. As the years went by, Fleur began seeking a potion that could turn back the hands of time. The Fountain of Youth was very elusive — perhaps science had an answer? She had heard of this Great Retinol, but became wary of harsh side effects and high price tags.
One day, the Youth Fairy appeared at her door, offering Fleur a magical cream. Her complexion transformed, and she blossomed into the radiant flower she had once been.

Youth Fairy Retinol Moisturizer Benefits
If you asked the Youth Fairy to wave her magic wand to grant you a skincare wish, what would it be? This retinol moisturizer is rich in anti-aging ingredients and nourishing botanicals that boast a host of benefits. Here’s a short list of what Youth Fairy retinol moisturizer can do for you.
Renews and Rejuvenates Skin
You probably guessed by now that Youth Fairy contains a highly effective small dosage of retinol (0.03%). Retinol is known for its ability to stimulate collagen production, increase cell turnover, and unclog pores, rendering your skin smoother and more youthful-looking.
Evens Skin Tone
In addition to helping to renew your skin, retinol also helps even out skin tone and minimize the look of dark spots due to increased cell turnover.
Firms and Tightens Skin
Because retinol can encourage collagen production in your skin, it helps to firm and tighten the skin.
Packed with deeply moisturizing ingredients like vitamin E, evening primrose oil, and squalane, Youth Fairy nourishes the skin while restoring moisture for an instant glow.
While retinol is known to cause redness and irritation, our concoction of botanical extracts – which include sea buckthorn oil and shea butter – help reduce the risk of irritation. Antioxidants protect the skin and help restore the skin’s protective barrier, resulting in smoother, well-nourished skin.
Youth Fairy Retinol Moisturizer - What’s in it?
We’ve packed our Youth Fairy Retinol Moisturizer with the best anti-aging ingredients that science and nature have to offer. It includes 0.03% retinol– which is a low but still very effective dose – enough to reap the benefits without the risk of irritation. Besides the scientifically-proven power of retinol, we have included some magical botanicals to amplify its anti-aging and moisturizing benefits. A few of our favorites are:
- Organic Evening Primrose Oil - Packed with fatty acid, organic evening primrose oil is known for being able to seriously hydrate the skin, but it’s also known to calm the skin and help reduce the appearance of redness.
- Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice - Not only does aloe vera leaf juice act as an incredible moisturizer for the skin, it works to soothe your skin and help reduce any irritation the application of retinol may cause.
- Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, sea buckthorn oil is incredibly hydrating and will leave your skin seriously soft. Sea buckthorn oil has naturally a pretty bright yellow hue, which is why Youth Fairy is full of golden magic!
- Shea Butter - Naturally infused with vitamins A, E, and F to help soothe and protect the skin, we incorporated shea butter into Youth Fairy to create the perfect texture for this anti-aging night cream.
How to Use Youth Fairy Retinol Moisturizer
Incorporating Youth Fairy Retinol Moisturizer into your skincare routine is easy. Ideally for use as a night cream, apply it as your last step in your skincare routine. This means after your cleansed, toned and applied serum and/or eye cream.
Start by using Youth Fairy every other night until your skin adjusts. Retinol can take some getting used to, so this may take a few weeks. Once your skin adjusts to the retinol, you can begin applying it every night. If you do choose to apply Youth Fairy during the day, be sure to follow up with a sunscreen to protect your skin. Retinol typically takes about 12 weeks to see results.
Another important thing to remember- it’s best not to mix retinol products with Vitamin C products. If you are using a Vitamin C product on your skin, such as our Nectar of the C serum, it can still be used when using Youth Fairy; just be sure to apply each product at different times during the day, and do not layer them at the same time. For example, we recommend using a Vitamin C serum in the morning and Youth Fairy in the evening.
