AMAs host Kelly Rowland says this retinol ‘changed her life’

The gold standard of retinol has a fan in singer and AMAs host Kelly Rowland, and she’s not afraid to share some very compelling reasons why it’s good for her skin.

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

Also appearing on Rowland’s A-plus list are (among others): Mutha’s Face Oil, which she describes as “fantastic” and says her boyfriend bought her; Augustinus Bader; UnSun Mineral Sunscreen, to which he gives the one-word adjective “awesome”; $4 Vaseline Lip Balm and “really good beauty secret” Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion; and acne-focused ZitStick kits.
