The instructions are to use it when you’re not using anything else. No acids and retinols at the same time as this. You can use this in the morning and a retinol or acid at night time, but don’t layer the products.
You can see that the product has a gorgeous blue colour – that’s from the copper peptides that are in this product. This is basically the copper peptides in a moisturizing squalane and glycerin mixture. Here are the ingredients:
Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Glycolipids, Sucrose Laurate, Propanediol, Tripeptide-1 (Palmitoyl) Copper, Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Propylmethylmethoxybenzofuran, Vetiveria Zizanoides Root Extract, Aphanizomenon Flos-aquae Extract, Sucrose Stearate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol.
Because of the moisturizing mixture, it feels so comfortable on your skin, so I actually love using it when I’m on a regimen of retinol. Retinol is making my skin peel so much, so using CAIL in the morning after using a retinol at night helps get rid of a dry tight feeling on my skin.
I use a hyaluronic acid first, then this, and then I apply sunscreen or a bb cream or a foundation. I’m finding that layering all these is working for my skin. When my skin is dry, it just soaks up the CAIL, and if it doesn’t need it, then I just spend a bit of time massaging it in.
You can get this online for $90.
