Retinoid Serum

Glowing Radiance

Preservation Serum

Gently transforms your complexion by lessening the appearance of discolorations from gnarly breakouts, having fun in the sun, and stubborn redness, so you can flaunt “I woke up like this” radiance on the regular.

Tackles and diminishes skin redness like a boss

By combining skin-soothing ingredients with our gentle retinoid, we’re able to tackle skin redness and reduce its appearance, restoring your complexion back to an even skin tone--even if you’re suffering from rosacea or acne.

Smooths unwanted signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles

We’re into aging gracefully and doing our best to prevent premature fine lines and wrinkles. Whether you’re noticing your first fine lines appear on your forehead, or you’re working to prevent them, Preservation Serum helps smooth their appearance and supports your skin in slowing down the aging process.

Highly effective, yet gentle on sensitive skin

We know traditional retinol products don’t agree with every skin type, that’s why we created a gentle yet effective retinoid serum to correct imperfections without turning your skin into a sensitive, dry, flaky mess. You can thank us later.

Gently Renews Skin

Our retinoid serum gently increases cell turnover with a potent blend of ingredients that work in synergy to renew skin affected by acne scars, sun damage, and redness while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles over time without all the harsh side effects.

Harsh & Damaging

Strong doesn’t equal better. Most retinol products are harsh and cause sensitivity, irritation, chronic dryness and dehydration, and create annoying flaky skin. Over time these symptoms cause more harm than good, leaving you with a new set of skincare concerns to try to reverse.

Loaded With Good Stuff

Instead of using only a retinoid in our serum, we combine a blend of active ingredients to work in synergy, maximizing their full potential and allowing your skin to become its brightest, bounciest, and healthiest self. You know, creating the kind of skin others envy.

Basic & Boring

The other guys are pretty basic, using retinoids with filler ingredients that make a product feel good but leave much to be desired. We know, we don’t want to waste our time on a product that feels lackluster and leaves us wanting more either!

Smells Amazing

A citrus dream in a bottle, Preservation Serum reminds you of a summers day with plant extracts and essential oils to naturally invigorate the senses. Nothing artificial about this bottle of happiness!

Not So Much

Sometimes they’re loaded with potentially skin irritating fragrance, sometimes they smell completely unpleasant. Why not enjoy the few minutes you’re spending applying your retinoid in the evening?

It Works!

Don’t let the turmeric color of this product throw you off. I have been using it every night for over a week now without any peeling or irritation and I am really starting to see the results, especially on my neck crinkles!

Typically, I get dryness and irritation from one application of these types of products. This one is sweeter to my skin. It probably also helps that I am using the entire skincare line as well. The other products are very nourishing and support this effective serum.

I also really love the pump it comes in!

I Glow Now!

I've been using the preservation serum 3x a week and love it!! It's smoothed out my skin tone and reduced the signs of acne scars. My typically sensitive skin had no problem using this product, which is amazing! My skin is glowing!

Finally a retinoid that won't dry out your skin!

I used to get my retinol through my dermatologist and it was so harsh on my skin, I could never use it during winter or without a ton of moisturizer. Even then, I would have such terrible flaking that I would be terrified to use it. This serum is exactly what I needed in my skin care routine.

I was shocked I could use it every other day without drying/flaking, and I could probably even do it everyday if I wanted to. I use it in the evenings before bed and the glow that comes after you apply it is unreal. I wake up with smooth, clear, and BRIGHT skin.

It also helps with any congestion I get around certain times of the month. I haven't seen a huge reduction in my wrinkles or acne scars, but overall my skin does look smoother and I've only been using it faithfully for a couple of weeks. I was so excited about this serum, I followed up with ordering the dew drops and moisturizer.

Sensitive Skin Heaven


My sensitive skin has suffered for years since menopause started - redness, allergic reactions, dryness. All of these made it difficult for me to use skin saving products; only skinceuticals came close to helping me. I started using the Sarah Nicole trio a few weeks ago and am thrilled with the results.

I can finally use a retinol serum without a reaction (soooo happy), and the dew drops blend well with my remaining skinceutical products as well as the Sarah Nicole moisturizer. I look forward to using this trio, along with other Sarah Nicole products as they are released, forever.

Amazing products!

I am in LOVE with the oil!!! It leaves my skin super moisturized and silky. The directions said to use it from head to toe, so I took it literally and applied to my very dry and calloused feet before bed and immediately noticed the difference the next day.

I was a bit skeptical of the serum as I have never been able to use any form of retinal, no matter how mild. I was immediately surprised by the bright yellow color. I started it off slowly once every three days and after two week I have been able to progress to every other day with no break outs or irritation. I am shocked that after 10+ years of experimenting with retinals, I have finally found one that doesn’t upset my sensitive skin.

Love, Love, Love!

I’ve been using the nourishing cream and serum for a few months now. Love them both,

I use the serum every other night and the retinol doesn’t dry my skin out like other retinol I’ve used.

The nourishing cream is by far my favorite cream, my skin is dewy and soft. I just received the Dew Drops and can’t wait to try!

Is Preservation Serum similar to Retin-A?

Preservation Serum and Retin-A are similar but different. Retin-A is a prescription strength retinoid, often associated with sensitivity and irritation. In Preservation Serum, we use retinaldehyde which is a type of retinoid known for being gentle without sacrificing results and less likely to cause sensitivity.

How do I use Preservation Serum?

Although Preservation Serum is gentle and many can use the serum every day without experiencing sensitivity or irritation, it’s a good idea to start slow. We suggest beginning Preservation Serum 2-3 nights a week, but not consecutively, and increasing frequency after a few weeks. Those with sensitive skin or new to using retinoids may want to begin more gradually.

Can I use Preservation Serum and an exfoliant together?

While it’s not necessary, we know there are some who like to use the two together. We suggest alternating nights, using Preservation Serum one night and your exfoliant the next. Listen to your skin, if you feel dry, tight or any sensitivity, give your skin more than one night in between products until you find the right balance for your unique skin.
