A-Passioni Retinol Cream, $105

The skincare brand has released a wide variety of products that contain a single ingredient like glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid, and now, it has added retinol to its growing repertoire of products. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative and has always been known as a great anti-aging skincare ingredient. Besides that, it also helps to improve skin texture and even out skin tone.

What makes this retinol-based product a must-try? It combines one per cent vegan retinol with nourishing, superfood-rich ingredients (so it is safe to use even if one has more sensitised complexions) to soften the look of fine lines, deep wrinkles and sun damage — revealing a vibrant, younger-looking complexion. Together with other supportive peptides, this helps to restore the skin’s suppleness and bounce, as well as boost radiance, so it looks plumper, healthier and more radiant.

What else is in the formula: a curated blend of passionfruit, apricot, marula and jojoba oils, which are meant to replenish essential lipids and moisture while antioxidant-packed kale, winter cherry and xanthophylls defend and strengthen the skin to protect it against environmental stressors that may cause early signs of ageing. The best part? It can be used on a daily basis, and both morning and night time. This is going to be your next go-to cream.
