Shani Darden Skin Care

Retinol Reform®


Retinol Reform® has become the go-to serum my clients swear by. It’s clinically proven to address multiple anti-aging concerns from the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, to uneven texture, dullness and even loss of firmness. Utilizing a time-release encapsulated retinol, this formula delivers a consistent stream of retinol throughout the night to minimize irritation often experienced with retinol products. It also contains Lactic Acid, an AHA which helps to brighten and smooth skin, so you get both immediate benefits and long-term results. It’s an essential treatment for glowing, youthful-looking skin.

How to Use

In the evening after cleanser and toner, use Retinol Reform® on dry skin. Follow with a moisturizer. Start with 1-2 times a week, add a day each week, build up to using as often as your skin can tolerate.  

Be sure to use a sunscreen daily (Shani recommends Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50). Retinol Reform is best used at night when your skin is in repair mode.  Shani recommends using a Vitamin C serum during the day. Avoid using other AHA products on the same night as Retinol Reform.  Do not use if pregnant or nursing.

Key Ingredients

Encapsulated Retinol:

Stable, quick penetrating, slow release form of retinol that helps minimize irritation. Helps boost skin's elasticity to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven texture.

Lactic Acid:

Exfoliates to improve texture and uneven tone for smoother, brighter skin.

Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract:

Helps reduce visible signs of aging and provide antioxidant defense against the effects of sun damage and pollution.


Retinol is the best anti-aging ingredient (other than sunscreen). It's effective at reducing the appearance of multiple different concerns - from lines and wrinkles to dullness and rough texture.


Retinol can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage. Apply a sunscreen like Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen each morning when adding a retinol to your regimen.
