A-Game 5


A silky, lightweight emulsion containing a medium-strength amount of retinal to help against all signs of ageing while being gentle on the skin.

Retinal is the "big brother" molecule of the better known anti-aging superstar, retinol. While retinol needs two metabolic conversion steps to reach the active form, retinoic acid (aka  tretinoin), retinal is the direct precursor only one conversion step away from the active form the skin cells understand. It is estimated that retinal can convert more than 10x more efficiently to retinoic acid than retinol, making retinal an outstandingly effective member of the retinoid family (vitamin A family). 

Once converted, retinal helps the skin cells to produce more collagen and other structural elements, making the skin more youthful, firm and elastic. It also speeds up the renewal process of the upper skin layers making it smoother and more even. A-Game is a smart-aging must-have, but it is also useful as an adjacent product for fading pigmentation, as well as helping acne-prone skin.

In terms of strength and knowledge, Geek & Gorgeous would compare their 0.05% retinal serum to the strength and knowledge of a 0.5% retinol product but with less irritation potential and possibly quicker results. 

Cruelty-free | Vegan | Fragrance & Essential oil free | Gluten-free 

Suitable for anyone who is looking to try out Retinal in their skincare routine. However the texture of this product is more suitable for combination and oily skin. 


Retinal (0.05%):  An anti-aging superstar ingredient that is the direct precursor of retinoic acid (the active form that the skin cells understand) and shows an outstanding activity/tolerance ratio among topical retinoids. 

Allantoin & Panthenol: A classic ingredient duo known for their skin soothing and skin protecting abilities.

Biosaccharide Gum-1:  A carbohydrate molecule that has nice skin soothing and moisturizing abilities and makes A-Game even more gentle and silky.

How to use

Apply a pea sized amount to face in the PM! In your evening routine, apply liquid and gel-type products first (for example a toner or other serums) then A-Game. Follow with a moisturiser. Wear a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher in the morning.

If your skin is sensitive, start using A-Game every other day and if well-tolerated, move up to every evening in two weeks. You can try using A-Game around the eye area, but pay attention not to rub it into your eyes. 

Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding!

Good to know: A-Game has a bright yellow color due to the retinal in it. Based on our experience, it dissipates on the skin and does not leave a yellow tint on surfaces.

I started out using this everyday since i've been using retinol in a high concentration for a long time (ordinary's 5% retinol serum). It messed up my skin big time! I quit and re-started 1 month later, applying it every 4 days. I've been using it for a while now and i'm down to every 3 days - every 2 days. It works like a dream! Very good product. I feel though it needs a complementing serum, hydration or Niacinamid for a perfect result.

In the bigger picture, i just love retinol/retinal serums. My skin looks younger at 25 then it did at 20 using no retinal/ol.

It feels really good and soft on the skin but i haven’t seen any different in my skin yet. I think i’ll buy the A-Game 10 next time

En toppenprodukt!

Fasat in denna produkten nu i ca två månader och är nu uppe i att använda den varannan natt. Inte upplevt någon hudirritation. Ser resultat i min hudtextur som har blivit finare och mer jämn och ser också minskning av storlek på porer och pormaskar är ett minne blott. Ska bli spännande att se vad den gör över tid relaterat till åldersförändringar. Gillar den mjuka konsistensen på krämen vilken är så lätt att applicera. Fantastiskt att få tillgång till en retinal produkt och till ett så oslagbart pris! Kommer stanna på denna styrka då jag inte vill riskera att överbelasta min hud i dess omvandlingsprocess från retinal till retinsyra. Är osäker på om den kan göra det men tar det säkra för det osäkra. Och resultatet sägs ju bli samma över tid som en högre styrka. Älskar denna och kommer återköpa den om och om igen!

Har använt den ett kort tag. Tycker mig se att huden reagerar väl, jag har aknebenägen hud med många gamla märken och kryper mot 30 så vill förbereda för rynkor och annat. Kan reagera med finnar på det mesta och även utslag, men inte med den här! Har använt nattetid flera gånger i veckan (inte två nätter i rad), ingen irritation, och huden verkar må mycket bra! Ser fram emot att använda den längre för mer långsiktiga resultat, och gå över till 10 när denna är slut.
