“We can all agree we want ageless-looking skin,” bareMinerals Brand Expert Lisa Galli says. Aging is (quite literally) the most natural thing in the world, but we want our skin to look healthy and radiant as we age naturally — not prematurely stressed by pollution or sun damage. And that’s precisely why we launched the new AGELESS Phyto-Retinol* Skincare Collection. Its gentle yet potent formula is powered by a plant-based retinol alternative, as well as protein peptides and hyaluronic acid, which work together to improve texture and smoothness for fresher, more youthful-looking skin — without harsh ingredients, or the irritation associated with traditional retinol.
In celebration of the launch, Lisa hosted a live virtual event to share more about the development of this special collection, demo the products and answer viewers’ burning questions about the innovative collection. She kicked it all off by sharing the fascinating process of extracting our plant-based retinol alternative from the Picão Preto plant, which is native to South America.
“Think of how you might make wine or olive oil,” Lisa explains. “They pick Picão Preto and we put the plant into this large pot of boiling water and it’s heated and distilled. And through this process, the plant is pressed down and it creates oils at the bottom through the heat; we extract those oils and all that goodness, and infuse it into our formula.”
Galli goes on to apply each of the products to her bare skin, which, as viewers called out, is positively glowing by the end of the demo. After her skincare routine, she also applies a natural makeup look, including the fan-favorite COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream and our brand-new MINERALIST Gloss-Balm.
All throughout the livestream, Lisa took the time to answer viewer questions about the AGELESS Collection. Here are some of the most frequently asked ones — and the nuggets of clean beauty knowledge that Lisa had to share:
Vicky: Can I use these products every day?
Lisa: Yes, you can use them every single day!
Brenda G: I have super oily t-zone, but aging skin. How will this “feel” on my skin?
Lisa: It feels really, really nourishing, and I think you can see that my skin looks hydrated. And thank you for reminding me — there’s also hyaluronic acid in this collection. Hyaluronic acid is so good for hydrating your skin immediately. You can see it helps keep my skin hydrated, but also keeps the hydration over time. We’ve also got protein peptides in this collection, which help to increase your natural collagen. So it will help your skin look more plump and smooth and supple and radiant.
Andrea: I am looking toward new products and ideas. Is this great for a 43-ish years old person?
Lisa: This collection is great for any skin type, any skin tone and you can pair it with any other product — it won’t cause irritation.
Lauren: Do you need to use the retinol night serum and the moisturizer to see results?
Lisa: Of course you can use the whole collection, but you can use the products individually to see results. You’ll still see results in 1 week from using the night concentrate and the cream, but the whole collection is made to work together. They’re only going to complement each other and give you the best results.
