I am absolutely IN LOVE with Apothekari! A is for Anti-Aging Retinol Serum has changed my skin. I suffered from adult acne and I have not had a single pimple since I started using this Ah-mazing serum. Not to mention how firm and bright my skin is. And Made in Canada! It’s the whole package!

I am a huge fan of Apothekari Skincare! It feels good to be using high quality skin care products by a company that’s not only local, but also delivers on its promises. My favourites are A is for Anti-Aging Retinal Serum and Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum. My skin has never felt better – smooth, firm, hydrated, and radiant!

I've been using Apothekari's "A is for Anti aging" product for a few years now and love it! My fair, Scandinavian skin tolerates the retinal levels well and thus, at times, I've used it daily. Lately, though, I love alternating it with coconut oil, or with Apothekari's Vitamin C product, Undercover Agent Serum. All in all, I've noticed an improved skin texture (smaller pores, more even tone), fewer blemishes and better oil control.

I’ve been struggling with hormonal acne for at least 10 years and nothing was working. Sharmani recommended the A is for Anti-Aging Serum and in about a month, my breakouts significantly decreased. Beyond controlling breakouts, though I love the way my skin feels. It’s more smooth and also more even which is amazing! The fact that this serum contains retinaldehyde, which also helps to prevent skin damage and reverse existing damage is a definite plus.

I've been using the A is for Anti-Aging serum for the past couple of months and love how it makes my skin feel – very smooth and soft. And it’s not just me. In the past few weeks, I’ve received 2 compliments about how lovely my complexion is!!! I haven’t changed anything else about my routine or lifestyle so can only attribute these benefits to this serum. If you’re looking for a product that delivers results, try it!

Dramatically improve the look & feel of skin! Visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines & imperfections for smoother, ageless & glowing skin with Apothekari A is for Anti-Aging Retinal Serum (30 ml/1 fl oz).

You could call this a miracle for the skin if one existed. Formulated with patent-pending IconicA, A is for Anti-Aging Retinal Serum incorporates stabilized retinaldehyde, the ultimate retinoid because it is the direct precursor to Retinoic Acid, the form of Vitamin A that is used by the human body. But this serum offers even more, with ingredients that deliver photo-aging protection, exfoliation, anti-inflammatory/anti-irritant properties and skin brightening effects.

If you’re familiar with what retinoids can do for your skin, then you’ll know why we formulated this anti-aging serum. The retinaldehyde in IconicA® performs closest to retinoic acid in a cosmetic topical, to deliver the ultimate in wrinkle reduction and age prevention properties to skin. It is also the least irritating Vitamin A to skin, making it ideal for all skin types.

My Fave Four Apothekari products

The first product I purchased from Apothekari was the A for Anti Aging. I have Never been able to tolerate retinol products and always ended up bailing because of dry flaky skin. Until A for Anti Aging. It's Amazing! I have now added the Vitamin C, the Deodorant (Neroli Rose is my current favourite but the Lavender is great too), and most recently the More than Lip Service (thank you thank you thank you Apothekari :)). While deodorant and vaginal moisturizer may sound like odd gifts, these are my latest go-to's for the gal who has everything. All have become fans!

THIS WORKS! No odour for 24+ hours including a yoga session!

I'm blown away by how effective this is, and by how clean and well thought out the formula is. I'm not used to roll-on so that took a couple days to adjust to, but its so much more effective than the solids/creams i was using that it is totally worth it. I'm converted - and i think i have probably tried 90% of the natural deodorants out there over the last 10 years LOL. thank you for creating this.

I love this body oil!

This is so luxurious and moisturizing (i have dry, sensitive skin and most oils don't do the trick) and also miraculously absorbs very quickly. And the lemon rose scent is just transporting - i look forward to using this after my shower.

Bespoke Vitamin C Serum

I love it! Been using it for years. It’s so perfect to put on right after I wash in the morning. I’ve never been the greatest at sticking to a skin care routine but using the Vitamin C in the morning and A is for Anti-aging at night consistently over the years has kept my skin young and firm.
Would not want to imagine life (or my skin) without these two essentials. Thank you Sharmani!

*Received as press sample*

Pricing per bottle is definitely up there, but I think much like skincare, if you have struggled to find a deodorant that works for you, the price won't be as much of an issue because something like this can have a huge impact on your life. One bottle should last about 3-4 months with daily use which I think is fairly close to most deodorants. While I know there are baking soda-free options (baking soda can cause skin irritations due to pH disruptions) and options that use Deoplex, I have yet to find a combination of Deoplex and lactic acid which may be what's working for me. Honestly, the only thing I didn't enjoy was that "wet" feeling when I would first apply it, but after 15 seconds it dries down AND it doesn't stain clothing so that's a huge plus. Even though I received this as a press sample, I would buy this deodorant on my own as I didn't just smell good at the end of a long day, but I smelled like absolutely NOTHING which is WAY better to me than smelling like "I'm covering something up" or like body odour. I also trust and appreciate the research I know Apothekari has invested into making sure the formulation is scientifically sound so I know that's also partly where my dollars are going. I only need to apply once a day and I'm good to go so one bottle might even last more more than 4 months at the rate I'm going! HIGHLY recommend and even though all three scents had the same results, my preferred scent was the Lavender as it just one of my favourite scents overall!
