CBE Botanicals Sleep On It - Retinol Serum


| /

A trio of actives! High dose Retinol Moist, Samphira Wax (botanical retinol alternative from sea fennel) and Liposome Encapsulated Vitamin A (retinol formulated to improve skin penetration), work together to provide collagen building, wrinkle eradicating, tone correcting, texture refining, skin thickening and clearer pores.

These clinically proven actives can stimulate cellular renewal by increasing skin cell turn-over and ultimately uncover fresh new skin, easing wrinkles, fine lines, and harmonizing the complexion

Improves the overall quality of the epidermis without irritating the skin with regular PM use (3-4 months).  Non-comedogenic, Will not clog pores. Safe for acne-prone skin.

Active Benefits:

  • Clinically Proven anti-wrinkle and anti-aging properties
  • Liposomes protect vitamin A (retinol) in serum from undesirable degradation and loss of function
  • Liposomes enable delivery of a high concentration of pure retinol (> 3,000,000 IU/g) to the deeper skin layers due to easy skin penetration and provide sustained activity.
  • Retinol Moist provides superior results with little or no skin irritation and redness (even for sensitive skin)

Results will vary on each individual and some see results earlier but the full spectrum takes time. Allow 3-4 months for full spectrum results. Prescriptions, while faster, can produce undesirable side effects like peeling and erythema, even leading to rosacea. The slow gentle progress of this retinol will prevent unsightly side effects. 

Directions: Apply this serum to a cleansed face in the evening ONLY. Avoid the eye/nose fold area to avoid excess product in this area. Some redness may occur but will fade overnight. This just means it's working.

This product also contains rose essence water, skin white ascutin (skin whitening ingredient) and butterfly pea and sweet potato powder. You’ll notice it is slightly thicker. It is a pretty blue color and has a slight rose scent. Rose water is a skin conditioning agent and the slight color is from the all natural food-based ingredients.  

ACTIVES: Retinol Moist, Liposome Encapsulated Retinol, Aeroleat Samphira (Crithmum Maritimum Extract (retinol alternative), Skin White Ascutin, L-Carnosine, Niacinamide

Additional Ingredient Information

The retinol in this product is encapsulated so a negative reaction is rare. However, if you have extremely sensitive skin, this product may not be right for you.

MSM is Methylsulfonylmethane. It has been present in the oceans, soil, and atmosphere of the Earth for eons. Organic sulfur (MSM) occurs naturally in the human body. It actually makes up 5% of the human body and is essential for every organ, cell, tissue, hormone, enzyme, antibody, and function found in the body. Bio-available, MSM must be continually replenished for optimal youth, nutrition, and health.

Aeroleat Samphira/Crithmum Maritimum Extract, also known as, Sea Fennel Extract is considered a plant alternative retinol – but we think of it as a retinol upgrade.

Niacinamide also known as nicotinamide, is water soluble vitamin B3. Vitamin B3 is essential for maintaining the overall health of skin. Vitamin B3 deficiency causes excessive dryness, skin lesions, and sensitivity to sunlight. Niacinamide is a precursor to coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide [NAD] and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate [NADP]. Treatment with niacinamide increases NADP in aged fibroblasts [collagen producing cells).

Hyaluronic acid (in sodium hyaluronate form) is a natural polysaccharide (sugar) that occurs in body tissues including the skin providing hydration, stability, lubrication. It is bio-technologically produced from glucose, soy peptone & yeast extract (does not contain any animal products). The super low-molecular-weight form is made by enzymatic cleaving high-molecular weight hyaluronic acid into small fragments. Smaller molecules enhance skin penetration.

Beta Glucan-  Beta-Glucan is a natural high-molecular weight polysaccharide naturally occurring in the cell walls of cereals, yeast, bacteria, and fungi. It is derived from mushrooms and is different than beta glucan from oat, barley or other plants. Dissolved in water and glycerin. Does not contain a preservative.  Beta glucan is a 'protect and repair' molecule as it increases natural self- protecting capabilities of the skin and also accelerates skin recovery. Due to its high molecular weight it also has good water-binding capacity and therefore moisturizing effects. Has been shown to reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Sleep on it Retinol

I just started using Christine’s Sleep on it Retinol 3x per week as suggested. No irritation whatsoever, and I like that it’s encapsulated. I am going to commit to this!

Sleep on it

This retinol serum of Christine's is wonderful. I can use it every night without it drying out my skin. My skin is loving it and have seen a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin. I would highly recommend this product.


I am on my second bottle of the CBE Botanicals Sleep On It - Retinol Serum and I am getting really good results. I especially like that I have no irritation and can actually use it, any other retinol that I tried I've had to give up because of harshness. This one is amazing I am very happy with it.
