Embrace the Ageless Journey: Unveiling the Transformative Power of Skincare

In the pursuit of timeless beauty, we often find ourselves drawn to the allure of turning back the hands of time, seeking skincare solutions that promise to unveil a complexion that defies the passage of years. Here at Citrine, we believe in embracing the ageless journey, working with your skin instead of against it so that it ages gracefully. In a world inundated with fleeting trends and promises, we aim to be your go-to space for knowledge and insight on all your skin care concerns, curating the cream of the crop in skin care that actually moves the needle and harnesses transformative results without compromise.  

When it comes to rewinding the clock and achieving a youthful complexion, we have answers. We have gentle retinol alternatives that delicately resurface your skin, banish imperfections and reveal a vibrant, youthful complexion. We have brightening superheroes that fade hyperpigmentation, leaving behind a glowing, even complexion. And for those seeking an alternative to invasive procedures, we have many botanicals that harness the power of nature to give you those transformative results. With a commitment to purity and potency in the products we carry, you can trust that you will be achieving results the most natural way possible. Every product we carry is a testament to the transformative power of skincare done right and these are our favorite products for achieving an ageless glow. 


New and noteworthy here at Citrine is the Ayuna Need-le that just arrived on our shelves. This revolutionary elixir stands out as a true game-changer and redefines the boundaries of efficacious, innovative, luxury skin care. At the heart of Need-le lies innovation and ingenuity, introducing two groundbreaking concepts to revolutionize your skincare routine. Inspired by the microneedling technique, Need-le employs all-natural, silicon-based microchannel spicules extracted from the freshwater sponge, Spongilla Lacustis. These tiny spicules act as gentle exfoliants, promoting skin renewal and stimulating collagen production, while also creating imperceptible micro-channels in the epidermis to enhance the penetration of active ingredients. 

Need-le also harnesses the power of the photobiota factor, a dynamic interplay between sunlight, skin, and microbiota, to awaken the skin's biodefensive potential. By nourishing the microbiota, Need-le generates luminous prebiotics and postbiotics as a holistic approach to treating photoaging. Infused with a phyto-cellular fusion of pomegranate and Arabian cotton, Need-le boasts a sophisticated cocktail of prebiotic polyphenols, plant chromophores, and antioxidant-rich compounds that all work together to restore elasticity in the skin, making it a new favorite when it comes to achieving those transformative results. 


While we support you in any decision you make to enhance your appearance, we also want to open your eyes to other, healthier and often more effective options. The possibility of achieving flawless, ageless skin, sans botox and filler… 100% au naturale… yes, it is possible and you are in the right place. One of our favorite products for achieving that youthful, tight & toned look at any age is Agent Nateur’s holi (lift). This is essentially a youth elixir that delivers exceptional results in skin tightening, toning & hydrating. It’s a powerful serum-like formula that contains 12 trademarked & patented actives that deliver a radiant complexion and REAL results when it comes to achieving ageless skin. It works to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin or crepey-texture.

It has a very high percentage of lactic acid, which is a powerful yet gentle exfoliant & brightening agent that stimulates collagen production, while infusing the skin with moisture. One of the incredible ingredients is Leucojum aestivum, also known as the ‘Summer Snowflake Plant’ and this is the ingredient that actually inhibits muscle contraction in the face, reducing facial movement, giving botox-like results. 

This serum, used in tandem as a conductive gel with the Theraface microcurrent setting, is the perfect at-home facial treatment. When used together, these two products deliver truly amazing results. Together, you’re going to rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level to contour your face and it works especially well on the neck area and works to actually eradicate jowls with consistent use. The Theraface tool is also one of those must-have tools if you’re looking to restore your skin to its most youthful state thanks to its LED light therapy attachments and microcurrent option. Red light therapy is absolutely going to give you some of the most transformative results when it comes to skin cell regeneration, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and overall rejuvenation. If you’re looking to get serious, this is a nonnegotiable. 

Another very potent product to incorporate into your skincare routine is the Tata Harper Elixir Vitae. This is a groundbreaking serum that really targets wrinkles, working on both preventing new from forming and repairing damage that has been done. This serum has 72 high-performance active botanicals that work to target wrinkles, plump the skin, increase & improve elasticity, and give the skin a boost of deep hydration. If you are in your 40s or beyond and suffering from any kind of loss of elasticity, wrinkles or just a pronounced aging of the skin, we really recommend investing in this product as it’s one of the gold standards in the industry to target the aging process. There is also an Elixir Vitae Eye Serum that also has an intensive list of nourishing & repairing active ingredients to help eradicate signs of aging around the delicate eye area. 


Retinols have become one of the most well known & widely prescribed products on the market when it comes to targeting aging, and even acne. What retinols do is work to renew our cells, which reveals fresh & youthful skin underneath. Whether we have acne, fine lines or dark spots, we’re told that retinol is the cure all. However, what we are not told is the ugly truth about its harmful effects. The truth is, not only can some retinols cause severe & adverse side effects, they can also be host to a variety of dangerous chemicals. Instead, we have some beautiful options that are chemical and toxin free, ultra-gentle on the skin and deliver potent results. 

Aqua A from Leahlani is a best selling serum of ours. It’s our top retinol alternative and formulated with an ingredient called granactive retinoid, which is essentially a different form of the traditional synthetic retinol. It’s a way more gentle, effective form of Vitamin A so it gives you all the beautiful results without any of the harsh side effects. They've also infused it with Kakadu Plum Oil, a potent source of Vitamin C, so you're not only getting really radiant skin & the renewal effect from the retinol, but you're getting the boost of antioxidants, plus the brightening effect from the Vitamin C. It’s a fabulous night serum to use if you’re looking for a retinol alternative and want to focus on cellular regeneration.


A brand new arrival in the retinol alternative category is the Ursa Major Lunar Bloom Retinal Serum. Formulated with cutting-edge technology, this serum harnesses the power of retinaldehyde, a bioavailable form of vitamin A, to rejuvenate and renew the skin without the irritation commonly associated with traditional retinol products. Infused with a blend of nourishing botanicals and hydrating hyaluronic acid, it works to diminish fine lines, refine texture, and promote a radiant, youthful complexion without any concerns of sensitivity and irritation. 





One of the first tell tale signs of aging, more so than almost anything, is the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. If you think of a beautiful youthful complexion, it’s completely void of irregularities and spots, completely even and bright. To combat some of the damage done throughout the years by the sun, environmental factors and even blue light, you’ll want to opt for brightening and resurfacing products that target and combat hyperpigmentation and help even out the skin tone. One of the most popular ways to treat hyperpigmentation is with the cult classic ingredient, vitamin C. Here at Citrine, our best selling vitamin C serum that delivers absolutely wild results is the Agent Nateur holi (c). This is a unique powder formulation that contains just two ingredients, sodium ascorbyl phosphate or SAP, and Calcium ketogluconate. Together, not only does this special form of vitamin C work to brighten and protect the skin but the Calcium ketogluconate actually firms and lifts the skin, restoring elasticity and giving you a sculpted effect. Activate the holi (c) powder with the Agent Nateur holi (water) and pat onto the skin for full benefits. Read more about why we opt for sodium ascorbyl phosphate as opposed to other conventional vitamin Cs over on the blog here

Another tried & true favorite for brightening and evening the skin is the Concentrated Brightening collection from Tata Harper. The Concentrated Brightening Essence is a delicate infusion of Alpha and Beta Hydroxy technology combats dullness, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. Minimizes pores and visibly fades the appearance of hyperpigmentation for the most gorgeous, luminous glow. Pair with the Concentrated Brightening Serum which is loaded with 69 active ingredients, this serum is best for those who experience hyperpigmentation from sun exposure or dull skin that needs a radiant lift. The actives in this product work to brighten, reduce dark spots, even out the skin tone, plump & contour the skin, and eliminate fine lines. This is an iconic anti-aging serum that you can’t go wrong with if you’re looking to bring your complexion back to life.
