Here's a quick fact about me: As someone with sensitive, acne-prone (a.k.a. troubled) skin, I have a minimalist skincare routine. Every night, I use a gentle cleanser, an anti-acne treatment, a no-fuss moisturizer, and that's it! After going through several breakouts in the past, I learned that less is more. I made sure that every product in my routine really serves my needs. So when SNAILWHITE's newest night cream, Gold Advance Cream Retinol + Bakuchiol, landed on my desk, I was a bit hesitant to try it, but when I read its ingredient list, I was intrigued.
What are the main ingredients of the SNAILWHITE Gold Advance Cream Retinol + Bakuchiol?
As its name suggests, this night cream contains retinol. This powerful anti-aging ingredient works wonders in getting rid of pigmentation, tightening the pores, and smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. It's combined with bakuchiol, a plant-derived hydrator that helps restore the skin's bounce.

It also has other brightening ingredients such as alpha arbutin, niacinamide, and alpine plant extracts, as well as snail mucin and hyaluron to lock in the skin's moisture. Overall, these ingredients will help you achieve clearer, smoother, and plumper skin.
My honest review of the SNAILWHITE Gold Advance Cream Retinol + Bakuchiol
Lately, I haven't been getting lots of sleep so my complexion looked a bit dull. Plus, I had a few angry zits as well as some post-acne marks.
I've only used the SNAILWHITE Gold Advance Cream Retinol + Bakuchiol for about a week but so far, my skin looks healthy and balanced. I noticed that it helped fade my pimple marks too, especially on my cheek area.
The best part is, it didn't cause breakouts. I'm curious to see its long-term effects so I will definitely keep using this!
