The A-Game 5 by Geek & Gorgeous is your best friend when it comes to gently helping all signs of aging. We all know the anti-aging superstar retinol, but have you heard of its’ bigger brother retinal? The A-Game 5 is a medium-strength retinal (0.05%) and perfect for anyone who wants to start with a gentle, yet effective, anti-aging approach. We prefer retinal, because it is estimated to convert more than ten times faster to retinoic acid - the active form - than retinol!

Retinal is a must in your skincare routine if you want to target aging. Retinoic acids, also known as Vitamin A, are the most used and the most studied anti-aging compounds when it comes to reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Also, they help with uneven texture by speeding up the renewal process of the upper skin layers. The result? Smooth and even skin. Finally, retinal helps the skin cells to produce more collagen, making the skin more youthful, firm and elastic. 

The A-Game 5 is formulated beautifully to reduce the risk of sensitivity. Asides from retinal, it contains soothing ingredients such as allantoin and panthenol to calm and protect your skin. 

Please don’t expect retinal will cure your concerns in a heartbeat! Give retinal some time and your skin will be forever grateful.
