Product summary

"Eve Lom - Time Retreat Radiance Boost Treatment by Eve Lom" is a well-rounded moisturizing product. To work well, any moisturizer needs to include a combination of water-binding and emollient ingredients. Eve Lom - Time Retreat Radiance Boost Treatment by Eve Lom ticks this box. Humectants in this product (panthenol, arginine, carnosine, galactoarabinan and glycerin) help to increase the water content in the upper layer of the skin. (These ingredients do so by "capturing" water molecules from the outside air or from within the deeper layers of the skin). Glycine soja sterols, arginine, helianthus annuus seed oil, cetyl alcohol and vegetable oil in this product help decrease the water evoporation from the skin, so that it stays hydrated for longer. These ingredients also soften the skin and take away the feeling of tightness and dryness.

Ingredient callouts

  • this moisturizer contains an effective form of retinoids (vitamin A): retinol 0.20% - 0.40%. Retinoids are potent multitasking actives. They work to improve and prevent early signs of aging, reduce hyperpigmentation (age spots and post-acne marks), and prevent inflamed blemishes and clogged pores. The downside of retinoids is that they can be irritating. If you are not already using a retinoid in your routine, it is best to start slowly and apply the retinoid product only a few times per week. If your skin tolerates it well, you can gradually increase the frequency to daily. Because of the irritation risk of retinoids, we recommend to have another, retinoid-free moisturizer in your routine to use on the alternative days or when your skin feels dry.
  • This formulation also includes panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) at about 1.30% - 1.60% concentration. In this concentration, panthenol works effectively to improve the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.
