No topical remedy revitalizes skin faster than a combination of Retinol, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic Acid. Got Acne? Brown Spots? Wrinkles? Dullness? Sagging? Uneven skin tone? Scarring or Hyperpigmentation? Redness? Stretch marks? All of the above? No matter what your skin woe is, the combination of these three ingredients has you covered. Typically, it takes buying three products to get this collagen-building beauty trifecta, but Lordsbury Retinol+C Cream Moisturizer combines all three into one moisturizing, twice a day product. And it’s super-sized at a whopping 2.8 ounces!
Lordsbury Retinol+C Retinol Cream moisturizer has the terrific trio of skin care: Retinol, Vitamin C, and Hyaluronic acid. Together, they erase wrinkles, boost collagen production, encourage skin cell turnover, smooth and refine skin texture, fade scars and discoloration, and quell even active acne breakouts. Despite containing powerful ingredients, Lordsbury Retinol+C Retinol Cream moisturizer is neither irritating nor drying to even highly sensitive skin.
Typically, one would apply Vitamin C during the day and Retinol at night, preferably with a layer of Hyaluronic Acid and then a moisturizer on top of that. Lordsbury Retinol+C Retinol Cream moisturizer combines these steps into one cream.
HOW VITAMIN C HELPS SKIN
Vitamin C helps skin create collagen. We lose collagen as we age, starting at 30. As collagen depletes, the building blocks that retain the skin structure weaken, creating wrinkles and sagging. Collagen also helps scars, discoloration and sun damage fade and gain a more even texture.
Vitamin C also protects your new skin cells from free radicals and pollution, both of which contribute to accelerated aging of the skin.
HOW RETINOL HELPS SKIN
Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative that is FDA approved to make skin clearer and smoother, expunge impurities from pores, reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discoloration, generally in less than one month.
HOW HYALURONIC ACID WORKS
Hyaluronic Acid holds massive amounts of moisture to plump out wrinkles and fine lines while making skin look dewy and young. Hyaluronic Acid also can pull active ingredients deeper into the skin, including Retinol and Vitamin C. The deeper these ingredients get, the better the supporting collagen structure becomes, and even older and darker scars fade. When Hyaluronic Acid helps Retinol sink into the deeper skin layers, it helps eradicate uneven skin texture and tone, including sun damage and deep scars.
ANTI-AGING TREATMENT FOR FACE, NECK, DECOLLETAGE & HANDS
The result is a retinol cream that moisturizes, regenerates, and nourishes your face, neck, decolletage and hands. An anti-aging cream with Retinol for the hands is a big get, as we often neglect anti-aging treatments for our hands until we see tell-tale brown spots and other signs of aging. But hands respond quickly to a moisturizing Retinol and Vitamin C combination treatment, and this makes for an excellent treatment to revitalize hands and restore their youthful appearance.
On my hands, I focus on the brown discoloration on the knuckles, and the joints at the point of the palm and finger. This area gets heavily lined as it is always in motion. It also tends to get red and dry. Apply directly to any brown spots or discoloration. If you have a problem with ragged and dry cuticles, apply sparingly to the nail bed as well. The skin on the hands will quickly start to look more youthful. During the day, use a lotion with sunscreen on the hands.
- It is a HUGE 2.8-ounce size; many Retinols are less than an ounce. Only a pea to dime size amount is needed for face and throat.
- It has a pump top that ensures not too much product is dispersed at once.
- There is a removable stopper plug and opaque product packaging to keep the product fresh
- It is suitable for use on face, neck, shoulders, decolletage, and importantly the hands. Hands show signs of aging like brown spots, discoloration, wrinkles and lines, and they respond very well to Retinol, especially when combined with other active ingredients, like this one.
The scent is pleasant and dissipates within a few minutes of application. The cream is rich but the consistency is lightweight, and it spreads evenly. I like the dewy but not oily or greasy feel on my skin. It takes a minute to completely soak in and leave a smooth finish, like a regular moisturizer. It only takes one pump to cover my face, throat and some decolletage. I can apply makeup immediately after application without my face feeling too greasy or oily.
I expected it to feel heavy on my skin because it seems so rich and decadently creamy when pumped out of the bottle, but it spreads very quickly and absorbs so well, my face and especially my throat just drank it up. Watch the video at the end of this post to see how smooth and lightweight the product becomes when spread on the skin.

HOW TO APPLY:
Apply day and night after cleansing the face, neck, decolletage and if you wish, to hands.
Lordsbury Retinol+C Cream Moisturizer is a fantastic deal! I was concerned that a combination product would not be as effective as my favorite Vitamin C or Retinol products when applied separately, but I was pleasantly surprised to see it was equally if not more efficient within the one product. Combined with the Hyaluronic Acid and all the skin nourishing natural ingredients, it makes for a great go-to skin moisturizer for face, neck, and the often neglected hands. And the price for the size just can’t be beat: 2.8 ounces!
If you have sensitive skin and have been unable to tolerate a Vitamin C and Retinol skin care plan, Lordsbury Retinol+C Cream Moisturizer is a viable option for you, as it contains several soothing ingredients to counteract the harsh drying effects associated with many Vitamin Cs and Retinols.
