“It has dramatically reduced the wrinkles that were coming in on my forehead and my smile lines. I have baby skin again. ”

- Nicolette

Get radiantly clear skin with MARA’s luxurious nighttime Algae Retinol Face Oil that soaks your skin with powerful algae extracts, 1.2% retinol and natural sources of vitamin A to support cellular turnover while revealing healthy-looking skin. This vitamin-rich treatment serum helps to provide the feeling of a boosted hydration barrier while visibly improving the appearance of wrinkles and uneven texture while drenching your skin with amino acids and free radical fighting antioxidants from fermented green tea. Phytonutrient powerhouse brown seaweed and evening primrose make the skin appear more plump and moisturized for a radiantly clear glow. #SeatheGlow Note: Incorporating a new retinol into your routine can cause the skin to initially purge slightly. This is totally normal, temporary and a part of the process using retinol.


Apply 6-8 drops to clean skin in the evening. Let it sink in and follow with Universal Face Oil. Start using 2-3 nights per week and build to nightly use.

My favorite retinol of all time!

I am no stranger to retinol and have tested a variety of both bio retinols, synthetic retinol in the clean beauty space but also more conventional and pharmaceutical grade retinol products and I have to say MARA's Algae Retinol Face Oil is my all time favorite. For someone with drier skin many retinol products just don't work well because they cause additional dryness and don't provide the moisture I need. This for me is a one and done product that I use a few times per week and my skin feels so moisturized and smooth the next day. I've really seen the results while using this product and highly recommend.



WOW I noticed a difference after just one night of using this! I have always been scared of retinol, but this product is so light yet effective and leaves my skin super soft, plump and clear. I put Universal Face Oil on afterwards and my skin is a dream <3 Thank you MARA!

How are there not more reviews yet of this amazing Retinol Oil?! I'm an aesthetician and I've tried MANY Retinol products. Rarely do products wow me anymore.until now. I'm not kidding, night 1 of wearing this, I woke up with incredibly bright, supple and smooth skin. I haven't had any irritation either due to the beautiful oils this Retinol in swimming in. I do still suggest easing this product into your routine gradually as it is a wonderfully potent treatment. For those of you who have either been afraid to try a retinol or have had bad experiences with these types of products in the past, give this one a try. So impressed with this gorgeous line. I can't wait to see what else MARA releases!

So pleased with this product!

I have tried countless retinol products only to end up completely broken out or with dry, irritated skin. I came across Mara retinol oil and I'm beyond grateful I did! It is extremely hydrating and has transformed my once inflamed, blemished complexion into smooth and balanced. I suffer from rosacea and this is so gentle and works wonders with my combination skin. Thank you Mara for creating such lovely, clean and effective skincare products!


Warms the Skin

Particularly effective after exfoliation in the evening. Feels warm on the skin. Love it!
