I did a bit more research online and from the Elle website, here are some additional notes that were recommended by Marla Malcolm Beck, CEO of Bluemercury:

"Retinol-based products can sometimes cause redness, so the most opportune time to use one is in the evening, also your body works hardest at night to fight and repair damage from the day. While using a retinoid it is important (i.e. mandatory) to use a high level of SPF protection in your daily regimen. "This will protect your skin from photosensitivity and sun damage, while supporting the reparative benefits of this powerful treatment."

Keeping that in mind, I didn't have a problem adding the Retinol Serum and Retinol Moisturizer to my night-time routine. After I cleanse and dry my face, I would apply the Retinol Serum first. Wait for about 2-3 minutes for the serum to fully absorb before I apply the Retinol Moisturizer. I would wait for about 5 minutes and then I would apply my Derma E Hydrating Night Cream.

Being that my skin is now sensitive combination, I was worried to how it would react to the Retinol. I am happy to say that there were no bad side effects, rashes, etc.!

I have been very pleased with using the Retinol Serum! I immediately noticed how smooth my face had gotten the morning after my first use and have been consistent with using the Retinol Serum every night. The results just keeps getting better and better. I've noticed my dark spots have been getting less visible, my skin is brighter and smoother.

After seeing how effective the Retinol Serum has been, it's safe to say that this is a permanent keeper in my skincare routine!

You can purchase a 1 fl. oz. of the InstaNatural Retinol Serum for $23.75 (U.S.D. before taxes and shipping). I find this product to be very well worth its price considering the price ranges of its competitors. Definitely invest in this serum if you're looking to create a solid skincare routine for your anti-aging concerns!

Do you have retinol incorporated in your skincare routine? If so, what are your favorite retinol products?
