Refixion Sans Retinol Crème

As the name suggests, Sonage's Refixion Sans Retinol Crème is also free of retinol. Instead, it’s packed with bakuchiol, an ingredient that board-certified dermatologist Dr. Nazanin Saedi names a great retinol alternative. “Like retinol, it also increases cell turnover, helps with collagen production, and reduces hyperpigmentation.” The cream also has skin-barrier-protecting ceramides and is noncomedogenic, so it shouldn’t clog up your pores or exacerbate patches of acne.
