Retinol Night Cream No. 2


Welcome to Step 2 of our Retinol Step-Up System! You’ve graduated from the Retinol Night Cream No. 1. This means that your skin has happily adjusted to using retinol (without redness or irritation) and is ready to level up. 

Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is the holy grail of performance skincare because it helps to soften, smooth, and brighten your skin while you sleep. This cream has .3% retinol, which is double the concentration of our introductory Retinol Night Cream No. 1. 

Not Your Average Retinol: What makes Fig.1 retinol different? 

  • Transparency: We tell you exactly how much retinol is in the formula, .3%!
  • Encapsulation: This slow-release retinol technology delivers superior results without irritation.
  • Packaging: Airless pumps protect from air, light, and dirty fingers. We even fill our bottles under a nitrogen blanket to prevent exposure to air that could decrease the potency of our active ingredients. 
  • 24-Hour Moisturization: Our ultra-nourishing base formula supports the skin barrier and hydrates for 24 hours, allowing retinol to work harder without irritation. 
  • Clinical Trials: 3rd-party studies confirm that you will see softer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin in as little as 4 weeks. 
  • Our Step-Up System: Our retinol is formulated as part of a unique step-up system that allows your skin to acclimate to retinol. 

Is No. 2 Right For You? 

When the skin is first exposed to retinol, it’s common to experience “retinization,” which results in dry, red, and irritated skin. To counter this process, we recommend that you start with a low concentration (.15%) of retinol, which can be found in the Retinol Night Cream No. 1. Use No. 1 for at least 60 days to let the skin adjust and acclimate. If you aren’t experiencing redness or irritation, you may be ready to graduate! Slowly introduce the Retinol Night Cream No. 2 by alternating No. 1 and No. 2 every other night for about two weeks, until your skin has fully transitioned.

Spread a thin layer onto the face after cleansing and treatments. If sensitive to retinol, consider starting with the Retinol Renewal Cream No. 1 and transitioning to Retinol Renewal Cream No. 2 over time, as your skin acclimates. Alternate every other night and build up to nightly use. Retinol may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Use sunscreen daily.
