Help Me and Overnight cream

I’ve been using Help Me by Philosophy and then top it off using Caudalie vinoperfect overnight renewal cream. Some

of the beauthy consultants in sephora recommended it some of them

said that I should use it simultaneously. I honestly bought the caudalie as a moisturizer after the retinol now I am wondering if it is a good idea. Thoughts? Thanks!

Hi @kmendza!

 

I would recommend that you either consult a professional as you would be combining to products that contain "active" ingredients.  Caudalie's overnight cream contains glycolic acid.  Some say it's OK to use:  http://www.paulaschoice.com/expert-advice/skincare-advice/myths/five-retinol-myths-busted.html

 

Other's seem to caution as using them combined can be too much for some people.  https://www.drbaileyskincare.com/info/blog/how-do-you-combine-tretinoin-retin-a-and-glycolic-acid-pr...

 

I guess it all depends on how tolerant your skin is and the strength of the retinol you're using.  You can experiment on your own and risk having an adverse reaction or consult a professional who can better guide you.  

 

I hope you find this information helpful!
