Retinol has been deemed liquid gold for transforming age-related concerns—but not without some drawbacks. Anyone who's attempted to incorporate the potent ingredient into their regimen has likely experienced negative side effects, such as redness, irritation, and flaking skin. But in a twist of events, one popular skincare brand has seemingly mastered retinol like no other with the introduction of its latest launch: the Retinol Face Stick.

Peace Out has attracted a loyal following to its expansive line of targeted treatments that boast ease of use and fast results, and the latest addition is no exception. The all-over face stick is the perfect pairing to the existing Retinol Eye Stick, a product that took the internet by storm after its release earlier this year. Both products are packaged in a lipstick-like bullet that offers mess-free application, but there are a number of additional benefits that set the Retinol Face Stick apart from its counterpart.

Enrico Frezza, the CEO & Founder of Peace Out, says that after experiencing difficult side effects with retinol himself, finding a way to include the highest possible percentage of retinol while avoiding the irritation commonly attached to the ingredient was of the utmost importance. Secondly, he wanted the stick to provide fast results that were noticeable after only one or two applications—and the brand succeeded on both accounts. Users should notice a difference in skin texture, hydration, and brightness within 24 hours of their first application, with increasingly visible anti-aging results to follow in a week's time.

Here's why it works: the Retinol Face Stick features 3 percent encapsulated retinol, a gentler form of the ingredient that absorbs into the skin slowly overtime, alongside retinol alternative bakuchiol, which smooths uneven texture and fine lines and wrinkles. You'll also find a blend of exfoliating acids, extracts, and enzymes on the list, which clear up congestion in pores almost instantly, and astaxanthin (a powerful antioxidant) that leaves the complexion looking brighter and significantly less dull.

Peace Out's Retinol Face Stick skips over irritation to give you your best skin yet. Shop the soon-to-be bestseller for $34, alongside the equally-worthy Retinol Eye Stick.
