AMA Presenter Kelly Rowland Says This Retinol “Changed Her Life”

The gold standard of retinol has a fan in singer and AMA presenter Kelly Rowland, and she’s not afraid to share the very convincing reasons it’s done good by her skin.

“I swear by Retinol Reform ($88) by Shani Darden—that has changed the game on my skin and changed my life,” the 41-year-old shared with Glamour earlier this year (she’s also a fan of Darden’s Cleansing Serum, Essence and Lactic Acid Exfoliating Serum).

Also showing up on Rowland’s A-plus list (among others): Mutha’s Face Oil, which she tags as “fantastic” and says her friend bought for her; Augustinus Bader; UnSun Mineral Sunscreen, which she gives the one-word “awesome” adjective to; a $4 Vaseline lip balm and “the really good beauty secret” of Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion; and the acne-focused ZitSticka kits.
