This pharmaceutical grade Vitamin A (Retinoid) is the key to flawless French girl skin - radiant, healthy, and plump. With its rich history, this product is about to become your new best friend in achieving a glowing complexion this fall and winter.


A313’s Rich History

A313 Retinol Cream's story traces back decades. Formerly known as Avibon, originating as a dermatologist's secret weapon, it has evolved into the cult classic it is today. A topical retinoid treatment for all skin types (including sensitive skin!), its powerful formula is renowned for its ability to rejuvenate skin, combat fine lines, and stimulate cell turnover. Through the years, it has amassed a dedicated fanbase raving over its transformative effects.

Where Does A313 Go In Your Skincare Routine?

Using retinol might sound daunting, but it's all about balance and consistency. A313 Retinol Cream is best applied after cleansing and toning, but before moisturizing. This allows its potent formula to penetrate your skin and deliver its magic. Remember, patience is key – results may take time to show, but the wait is definitely worth it.

Here's a breakdown of how to incorporate it into your skincare routine:

  1. Cleansing: Start with a clean slate by gently cleansing your face.
  2. Application: A tiny pea-sized amount of A313 Retinol Cream is all you need. Apply it to dry skin, focusing on areas of concern.
  3. Buffering: To ease your skin into the retinol routine, you can start by applying a moisturizer before the retinol cream.
  4. Frequency: Begin using it every other night and gradually increase as your skin builds tolerance.

Why Start Now?

Fall is the perfect season to introduce A313 Retinol Cream into your routine. With reduced sun exposure and the cool air aiding skin recovery, you can minimize the risk of photosensitivity that comes with using retinol during the day. 

TWENTYSEVEN TIP: We recommend using A313 ONLY at night. Using any retinol product during the day might cause irritation and sensitivity, plus using it at night before bed is prime time for skin cell renewal, getting the most out of the product.

What to Expect When Using Retinol?

Using retinol might come with a few hiccups, but don’t you worry, it’s all part of the process. You might experience mild skin peeling or a "skin detox" phase. Rest assured, these are normal reactions as your skin adjusts to the powerful formula. Keeping your skin hydrated and using a gentle exfoliant can help ease these effects, but make sure to stay consistent as this phase eventually goes away.

Who Shouldn’t Use A313?

While A313 Retinol Cream works wonders for many, it's essential to know if it's the right fit for you. If you fall into any of these categories, it might be best to give this product a pass:

  1. Sensitive Skin Types: If your skin tends to react strongly to new products or is easily irritated, approach with caution. The powerful nature of retinol might cause discomfort.
  2. Pregnant or Nursing: If you're expecting or breastfeeding, it's advisable to steer clear of products containing retinol, including A313. Your skin can be more sensitive during this time.
  3. Recent Sunburn or Open Wounds: Applying A313 Retinol Cream on sunburned or wounded skin can intensify irritation. Let your skin heal before incorporating this product.
  4. Using Other Strong Actives: Combining A313 with other potent skincare ingredients like acids or prescription medications might lead to excessive sensitivity or adverse reactions.
  5. Younger Skin: If you're in your teens, your skin is already in its prime regenerative state. Introducing retinol too early might be unnecessary.

Always remember, it's a good practice to do a patch test before incorporating any new product into your routine. Consulting a dermatologist is a smart move, especially if you're uncertain about how your skin might react. Your skin's health and comfort are the top priority!
