01. 4% nanoliposomal retinoid complex: 0.2% active retinal

Retinal, or retinaldehyde, is the most potent form of retinoid available without a prescription. Because of this, it yields results more quickly at lower concentrations than typical retinol. 88mph houses the highest concentration of liposome-stabilized retinal on the market—0.2%—inside a lusciously soothing lipid gel to target the appearance of fine lines, congestion, and thinning skin in 2 minutes flat. Expect noticeable firming and plumping of the complexion, resurfacing of skin texture, and a remarkably clarified, radiant, healthful look.

02. rapid delivery system

This first-of-its-kind short contact therapy system delivers potent ingredients instantaneously and minimizes likelihood of adverse effects. Water soluble actives loaded inside a functional lipid chassis form a highly potent suspension system. Phospholipids aid in delivery of retinal, intensive brighteners, and soothing barrier supportive ingredients. The self-emulsifying formula instantly transforms into a silky milk at the first touch of water to rinse easily; leaving a plumped, nourished skin feel that is completely residue-free.

03. powerful brighteners

More than a retinoid. 88mph teams synergistic brightening ingredients to dramatically speed pigmentation-correcting effects. An azelic acid derivative targets the appearance of redness and discolorations, salicylic acid facilitates resurfacing and clarifies pores, and a talented amino acid derivative ensures new hyperpigmented spots do not appear. Skin seems bright, even, and emanates an incredibly vibrant luminosity.

04. restorative holistic factors

To keep skin in a comfortable, soothed state, 88mph delivers barrier supporting ingredients synchronously with potent actives. An oil-soluble, bioavailability-enhanced ester of soothing licorice root active glycyrrhetinic acid quickly calms signs of irritation and redness. Multifunctional restorer ectoine teams with anti-inflammatory hyperforin from St. John’s Wort to support holistic skin healing. Finally, madecassoside, ceramides and panthenol ensure uncomfortable itching sensations are kept at bay for a thoroughly nourished, exceptionally restored finish.

01.0 The Ritual

Massage 2-3 pumps into clean, dry skin for 30 seconds. Leave on for 90 seconds; 2 minutes total. Add water to emulsify and rinse thoroughly. Immediately apply a gentle moisturizer. Wear sunscreen every day.

Introduce into routine slowly and do not exceed recommended treatment time. Begin with 1-2x weekly use for the first 4 weeks, then gradually adjust frequency and duration to suit tolerance; up to 15 minutes daily for very advanced users. Most enjoy using 2-7 times per week depending on tolerance and experience level. Visit the Plans + Tips section for customized routine schedules and detailed guidance on how to best incorporate 88mph for your skin.

01.1 Skin Prep

Simply cleanse as desired before applying 88mph to gently towel-dried skin. Use either morning or evening, although evening is generally preferred. May be used in lieu of a second cleanse at night or morning cleanse.

Evening Use

remove sunscreen and makeup with a swipe of micellar water or full double cleanse, then apply 88mph.

Our favorite way to use 88mph in the evening is after single-cleansing with Cloud Melt or a gentle micellar water. When using in the morning, we prefer applying directly to dry skin with no pre-cleanse. The emulsifying nature of 88mph helps ensure skin is thoroughly cleansed while leaving a plumped, nourished, hydrated skin feel.

02.0 Texture

Water soluble ingredients loaded inside a functional lipid chassis form a highly active microemulsion suspension system. The texture is a lightweight emollient gel with exceptional slip to easily glide over skin without tugging. The self-emulsifying formula instantly transforms into a silky milk at the first touch of water to rinse easily; leaving a plumped, nourished skin feel that is completely residue-free.

02.1 Notes

Wear sunscreen and limit sun exposure during use. Spot test for sensitivity and avoid contact with eyes. Discontinue use if irritation occurs. Use only as directed. Since 88mph is retinoid-based, it is not generally considered safe for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Consult your health care professional to discuss your unique situation.

03.0 Retinal 101

The two keys to retinoid use: consistency and gradual integration.

With a structured approach, there’s no need to stress about adding a retinoid into your routine. Slowly increasing usage frequency over a 3 month period allows skin to acclimate to potent products like retinal.

Tip 1

During Stage 1, or the first 4 weeks, we recommend pausing all other actives in your routine. What you’ll need: gentle cleanser, hydrating products if you choose, a soothing moisturizer, sunscreen (don’t skip it!), and the workhorse: 88mph.

Tip 2

If desiring more intensity, it is best to increase usage frequency before increasing session duration. We suggest reaching at least 4 days per week usage before considering an increase in contact time over 2 minutes.

Tip 3

88mph is not a leave-on product. Use only as directed and do not exceed the recommended contact durations. See section 03.2 Ensuring Great Results for more.

03.2 Ensuring Great Results

Keep it simple.

During the first 4 weeks of use pause all other active skincare in your routine; especially chemical exfoliants, physical exfoliants, and anything you know may stress or sensitize your skin.

Listen to your skin.

If skin is thriving and you’re happy with the results at 2 times per week use, there’s no need to add another day. If after bumping up frequency skin is showing signs of stress such as redness, sensitivity, burning or otherwise, step back to a level which skin tolerates well.

More isn't always more.

It can be tempting to think leaving 88mph on skin for 30 minutes more will give even better results, but this isn't the case. Its rapid delivery system ensures benefits are complete within 15 minutes (most within 2), so any time after this will only increase chance of adverse effects.

A purge isn't necessarily bad.

It doesn't happen to us all, but it is quite common: the dreaded purge. Skin purging is when existing congestion in the skin is brought to the surface more quickly via increased cell turnover. It happens in areas where we are most prone to breakouts. While it can be stressful to deal with many breakouts at once, these are breakouts that are already hiding under the skin's surface. Purging usually lasts between 4-8 weeks, so if your breakouts do not begin to diminish after 8 weeks, revaluate usage. The best part? after a purge, skin tends to heal visible breakouts more quickly, if they appear at all.

Stay consistent.

Retinoids are one of those ingredients where constant use over a minimum of 4 months is key to seeing results. So, whether you’re using 2 or 5 times per week, stick to the plan, trust the process, and enjoy the rewards when they come. They’re worth it!
