The patent pending Opoule™ Formulations are designed to optimize key actives and minimize preservatives. With the patent pending thermal blending provided by our Activator, the process is calibrated to the optimal temperature, helping greater benefits sink in. And it feels amazing! The duo delivers skincare at peak potency, and each application is ready in seconds with just one step.

Retinol works. It is still the top ingredient recommended by dermatologists, yet so hard to get right. Too much? Skin gets dry, red or both. Too little? Nothing happens. OPULUS Retinol+ is the first of its kind, designed for skin’s natural adaptation process. We’ve reimagined the retinol experience.

Your skin is unique, and we strongly believe skin care products should adapt to you, not the other way around. That is the power of personalized, high-performance beauty. Our regimens contain a precise cadence of treat, restore, repeat at different concentrations of Retinol to meet your specific skin care needs. You cannot get his experience from a traditional jar, tube or bottle.

Each of the 28 applications is properly and progressively dosed so skin gets the right concentration at the right time. The Retinol+ Ramp-Up Night Cream Regimens all include the soothing RHR (Restore, Hydrate, Rejuvenate) Overnight Night Masks to deeply moisturize, calm and support healthy cell proliferation while you give skin a rest.

It's like having a personal lab.

The OPULUS Activator provides a thermal blending process calibrated to reach the optimal temperature for heat amplified product absorption. When the OPULUS Activator pressure-opens an Opoule™ Treatment, it releases the inner Core of the Opoule containing the suspended key active ingredients, while the heated bowl melts the outer coat. The Trefoil Blade circulates at varied speeds unifying the two layers into one smooth, freshly activated formula to be applied at peak potency.

A Retinol+ Ramp-Up Night Cream Regimen is a four (4) week program for face, neck, and chest it costs $165. Before completing your first Ramp-Up Regimen, we will email you a notification so you can continue to reap all of retinol's rewards and order your next regimen or subscribe to a hassle-free automated refill program to complete the 90-day program.

We estimate it will take between 7 and 10 days for your order to be hand formulated, packed, and shipped. Our Opoule™ formulations are not mass produced, they are made with precision and passion to the highest standard of quality in our Pacific Northwest laboratories.

The Retinol+ Ramp-Up Regimens are designed to be used consecutively, one after the other for 90 days. This will allow your skin to gradually acclimate to retinol at higher concentrations at an increased application cadence.

Besides your skin feeling and looking soft, smooth, and radiant. Your skin will have acclimated to a higher concentration of Retinol. We recommend continuing to use this percentage. The cadence of application can increase.

To see ongoing results and skin rejuvenation it is recommended to stay consistent and incorporate retinol as part of your nightly skin care program. We suggest that you begin to use R3 retinol treatment nightly or repeat the Ramp-Up Night Cream Regimen 3.
