Twice daily, apply 4-6 drops of serum to the face, neck, and chest, or use as directed by a skincare professional.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    Retexturing Activator harnesses two polar mechanisms – exfoliation and hydration – to activate skin’s natural desquamation, or removal of dead skin cells, and visibly diminish surface lines without dryness. This replenishing serum is shown to have the resurfacing power of a daily 20% glycolic treatment.

Key Ingredients

  • 25% hydroxyethyl urea/aminosulfonic acid compound
  • Kombucha
  • Hyaluronic acid

This unique patented combination of ingredients is designed to stimulate enzymes that help break the bonds binding dead skin cells to skin’s surface, to evenly exfoliate skin while maintaining the skin’s moisture levels

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't see any noticeable difference for the cost. Maybe my skin isn't the right demographic, but didn't see much improvement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have used this serum for years & I honestly don’t know if it works that well. I enjoy the moisture it gives my skin more than anything else but for the price tag — it’s just not worth it. I love using this after my ce ferulic, but I most likely won’t repurchase when I’m through. It took me 2 bottles to realize that it’s not worth the hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this product! It has decreased my acne breakouts in a short amount of time, plus it’s not drying like other acne masks! Also works as a spot treatment. I can’t run out of this product, it’s a must have for my skin & acne routine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing skin results! The retexturing activator makes your skin feel & look tight and natural. It’s not the heavy or oily feel; it gives my face a glow. I would highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVORITE SKINCEUTICALS PRODUCT!! The retexturizing activator is by far my favorite skinceuticals product. And I love so many that I realize this is a bold statement. It shrinks your pores, makes you glow, makes the texture of your skin look amazing. It makes you look dewy under makeup but doesn’t pile when you put makeup over it. I use 3-4 drops of it in the morning, followed by moisturizer and sunscreen. If you haven’t tried it, you need to!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Youthful Glow! I love how this product finishes my morning routine and leaves my face very polished with a youthful glow. It’s very light, not greasy at all. It seems to just put everything together and leave my face primed for makeup application. I recommend it very highly!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable difference I don’t know what made me purchase this, probably all the other amazing reviews. But never have good luck. You guys, I noticed an improvement in my skins texture within days. Per the instructions, I applied it twice day. And my skin started to flake (not noticeable). Which is exactly what I need it to do. It’s now soft, moisturized, and my sun spots are fading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feeling skin! I am not typically a person that spends a lot on skincare, but my face had been really dry feeling and itchy and the dermatologist recommended this because my skin was apparently scaly (not dry). Works great with fast results; no more itchiness; lasts a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best eye cream, ever!! I have probably purchase 6 containers of the A.G.E. Eye Complex. Does a great job of smoothing out my under eye area and brightening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just started using this. Too early to tell, but does not irritate. Does not leave my face green like some people say. Does leave green cast on hand, but easily washable. Skin might be brighter the next morning. Have to use it more to really see. So far I am happy with the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product! I am a product junkie and have tried EVERYTHING! This is by far the HOLY GRAIL of serum's! My face has never been so smooth and radiant. I receive compliments daily on my skin and I owe it all to this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a great clarifying mask, I use it after a hot shower or bubble bath to open my pores first and keeps my face clear and pimples free! I wish it wasn’t so expensive though, I always wait for a coupon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty good. I prefer it at night since sometimes my makeup get affected by it but this is a fantastic product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a very good mask for detoxifying and drying up any ongoing breakouts or if you’re combination to oily. It works very well and didn’t irritate my skin. However, it did dry my skin out. Great mask just better for someone with combination/oily skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this our complex because it eliminates the puffiness and decreases the image of fine lines and wrinkles! I put it on at night before bed and feel so refreshed in the morning! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product. I started using it about a month ago and can see & feel my skin tightening up. It’s also peeled a little like a chemical mask - nothing harsh but enough for me to notice fresher, brighter skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really liked the skin ceuticals eye complex. It’s very hydrating but is very pricey

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I keep searching for my holy grail eye cream.  I give this one 4 only because I am leaving room for the ultimate ride or die eye cream...  This one has been going to the top of my list for years now.  It glides on and soaks in seamlessly and without fragrance of any sort, which I love.   This is my holy grail until another comes to knock it off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works very well on the skin, a little goes a long way and its very light, targets any discolouration and hyperpigmentation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best face mask! I use this once or twice a week or whenever my pores are looking clogged. Not only does it help with blackheads and blemishes, but it soothes irritation, and it has the added benefit of making your face look bright and fresh when you wash it off. It is by far the best clay mask I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the phyto+ it feels amazing on my skin. The serum helps to calm my skin after using retinol products. This serum helps to calm redness in my skin.
