Overnight Retinol Repair .50% + Buffer Cream

Customisable retinol therapy to reverse the signs of skin ageing.

Overnight Retinol Repair helps to reduce visible wrinkles, uneven skin tone and discolouration while improving skin firmness. This customisable treatment cream is powered by a unique, micro-encapsulated form of active Retinol together with Peptides, Vitamin C and Copper complex that ensure maximum results.

Aligning with your body's natural circadian rhythm of waking and sleeping - Overnight Retinol Repair works at night whilst your body enters its cell regeneration mode. 

This high-potency Retinol product is highly customisable when used with the included buffer cream. This gentle formula helps your skin acclimate to the highly-active levels of Retinol in Overnight Retinol Repair, minimising downtime that is often associated with retinol use.

This Product is Highly Active and the following care should be taken:

  • As this product is highly concentrated we recommend mixing 3 parts buffer cream to 1 part Overnight Retinol Repair for initial use and increasing your concentration as your skin acclimates to the Retinol.

  • Retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun as it stimulates cell turnover and thins the epidermis. You should use a minimum SPF30 while using Overnight Retinol Repair.

  • This product should not be use around the eye area. We suggest Age Reversal Eye Complex for this area.

  • Should not be used whilst pregnant, breastfeeding or whilst using Roaccutaine.

  • Temporary redness, flakiness, peeling and sensitivity may occur. These reactions are normal and will fade over time

Everyone's skin is different, but most people will experience Retinol's exfoliating effects within the first three days of use. As your skin acclimates, typically within two weeks, you will start to notice improvements that will continue over time.

How it works Overnight Retinol Repairs is a customisable treatment cream powered by a unique micro encapsulated form of active Retinol that ensure maximum results. Formulated with stabilised Vitamin C, Peptides and a clinically-proven bioenergised Copper amino acid complex, Overnight Retinol Repair helps to reduce visible wrinkles, uneven skin tone and discolouration while improving skin firmness. This powerful nighttime skin repair complex includes: Highly-active, 0.5% microencapulated Retinol that helps increase collagen production and cell turnover for visibly firmer, smoother skin. Antioxidant Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C) helps stimulate collagen synthesis and reduce skin discolouration Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 and TAUT peptides to help stimulate collagen production for firmer, more evenly-toned skin. Ceramides and active Polysaccharides to Hydrated and prevent water loss in the skin, helping to soften fine lines. Lavender and antioxidant liquorice root to sooth the skin and calm irritation.
How to use Overnight Retinol Repair is designed to be customised to your individual skin. Mix Overnight Retinol Repair with the included buffer cream initially 3:1 until your skin acclimates to the highly active Retinol. For best results apply at night all over the face (avoiding the eye area) after cleansing and toning and prior to moisturiser application unless mixing with buffer cream during initial use. Once your skin has acclimated to the Retinol you will be able to use Overnight retinol Repair without mixing with the buffer cream. Using other targeted treatments is not recommended, however you may use other treatment products on alternate nights. **A Minimum of SPF30 should be used when using Overnight Retinol Repair as Retinol may make your skin more sensitive to the sun**

Wonderful productReview by Fran
My Rating
I started using this as a sample and don't want to stop! I can now use it without the buffer cream and apply with my nightly moisturiser. It's helping to reduce lines on my face and even out skin tone. Just bought a tube - will continue using! (Posted on 16/12/2018)
Best scar lightening cream!Review by Eve
My Rating
This retinol is a bit expensive me thinks, but I still decided to take the plunge and get it to try. And I am soooo glad i did!! Best cream so far in lightening my complexion and acne scars, and I've only been using it for about 2 weeks (used it maybe 4x?). It is drying though if you don't put the buffer and let your skin get used to it. I use lots of skin products so my skin is pretty tough. Totes worth the money! (Posted on 14/02/2018)
Great purchase Review by Elizabeth
My Rating
I have started using this product this week and am in love with it already! I’ve never used retinol cream before but I am suffering from pigmentation so thought I would give it a try. I’m so glad I did - completely worth the money. My skin feels amazing! (Posted on 21/01/2018)
Stunned myself in the mirror the next morningReview by Jes
My Rating
I have sensitive fair skin with slight pigmentation (some light freckles and reddishness) on my cheeks and a number of recent acne scars around chin/jawline. Tried the sample with buffer and walked into my bathroom next morning - stunned myself in the mirror. My face was evened to an even fairer tone and the pigmentation were visibly lightened. It didn't work as well on the scars but that's probably because that's not what this product aims to do. Still, my stubborn scars were slightly faded as well. A little goes a long way - 4 rounds and I'm still not done using the sample. One of Derma's best products I've tried. (Posted on 19/04/2017)
An eye cream that actually works!Review by Lucie
My Rating
I received a free sample of this and am so glad as all other eye creams I've tried have been a complete waste of money. After the first use my skin felt noticeably smoother and less dry under my eyes, smoothing out all the little creases. I will definitely be using again. (Posted on 12/09/2016)
Love it!Review by Rachel
My Rating
Most over night repair creams I have tried in the past are a waste of money and after weeks of using them show no results. But not Dermalogica Overnight Retinal Repair. This product gives great results in such a short time. My skin is so much smoother and clearer than it as ever been. I will be using this for years to come. (Posted on 26/07/2016)

Great productReview by Tiffany
My Rating
My skin tone has noticeably evened out since using this sample I will most certainly continue buying this product. I have sensitive skin and on occasion get psoriasis on my cheeks this cream hasn't made my skin flare up like some cream does. GREAT PRODUCT!!! (Posted on 5/04/2016)

I love this stuff, it has noticeably faded my brown spots & the fine lines above my top lip are almost gone. My skin is definitely looking & feeling smoother. (Posted on 5/04/2016)
Very ImpressedReview by Lynda
My Rating
Even though I normally have sensitive skin I was able to use this product without the buffer cream after only a couple of days use. My skin is feeling softer and looks more balanced in tone. It even helped my skin recover quickly from a touch of sunburn that might normally have resulted in peeling. I will definitely be continuing to use this product. (Posted on 5/04/2016)
Excellent skin tone after few usesReview by Eva
My Rating
I tried a few samples, and didn't need the buffer cream at all. My skin tone definitely has more glow to it after only a few days use. Bought the tube to add to my skin routine. (Posted on 20/03/2016)
Worth Every CentReview by KCherie
My Rating
Initially I was hesitant to use this product, I have semi sensitive skin with a few dry patches so I got a sample and made sure I used plenty of the buffer cream. I was pleased that my skin had no bad reaction so I was able to purchase a full tube. I now use it every night, I still use the buffer cream but make it smaller every week, and I have had no peeling or complications.

To date it hasn't improved my minor discoloration but I have only been using it now for a fortnight. What it has done is made my skin so smooth, (I cannot remember when it was ever this smooth) and it has smoothed out some of the dryer areas.

I have already ordered another tube, not because I have used the initial tube but because I do not want to be without this product for even a single day. 5 stars...this may be the best Dermalogica product out there. (Posted on 8/02/2016)

I can't stop rubbing my skin!Review by Daniel
My Rating
I've been using this product for the past few weeks now and my skin can now handle the retinol without the buffer cream. I started to notice an improvement the texture of my skin within a week, but I must admit it's been in the last week where I find myself rubbing my forehead regularly in disbelief. The only thing I can compare it with is my 2yr old's skin. Certainly recommend it! (Posted on 13/10/2015)
