Aesthetician-developed with superstar ingredients for smoother, firmer, more even skin all over.

Hollywood aesthetician Shani Darden’s best-selling Retinol Reform is a verified all-star; a standard-setter—the kind of product that will remain a staple on the vanities of the most discerning skin care consumers for decades to come. Why? It works, sans irritation. When we heard that the queen of gentle-yet-effective skincare solutions was set to debut a retinol serum designed especially for the body that smoothed skin, faded dark spots and stretch marks, and even helped with the red bumps of keratosis pilaris (KP), our curators sensed another game-changer. Samples were promptly requested. 


2% Granactive Retinoid®—a fast-acting ingredient that is said to be more effective than traditional retinol on the thicker skin of the body, acts as the foundation of the quick-absorbing Body Reform Treatment Serum. In combination with vitamin C and amino peptides (AKA “topical botox”), this silky formula promises to visibly firm and brighten while diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin. The cherry on top: clinically proven Hydronesis™ works to reduce KP, and leaves skin softer, to boot. We were excited to hear what the derms and aestheticians on our Committee of Industry Experts had to say about this hardworking multitasker. 

“Love this serum. Helps firm and smooth the skin and even improves the appearance of keratosis pilaris, which can be super tricky to treat.”
–DR. DENDY ENGELMAN, Dermatologist 

“Love the combination of vitamin C and vitamin A to improve texture and hyperpigmentation on the body.” 
–DR. LIAN MACK, Dermatologist 

“I have extremely sensitive skin—especially with retinol—but I had no sensitivity with this product and love the consistency. It makes your skin glow like crazy!”
–MADALAINA CONTI, Aesthetician
