Key Ingredients

This advanced retinal reconstructs skin overnight to reverse sun damage and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and promotes an overall smoothness and evenness of facial skin tone. We go one step further by encapsulating our retinal to ensure the stability of the ingredient, so its potent power is protected until it meets your skin.

Plant-based antioxidant that offers similar collagen-boosting properties to retinoids but takes a different pathway. By combining bakuchiol and retinoids, we multiply the anti-wrinkle, skin firming effects.

A type of B3 that works your skin's natural chemistry to improve overall skin texture by rebuilding a lipid layer, minimising the appearance of pores, and preventing UV damage and inflammation.

Super hydrating natural emollient to lock moisture into your skin and relieve dry patches.

Two different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to supercharge hydration and give a dewy look on the surface of the skin, as well as hydrating deeper layers of the skin for lasting hydration throughout the day.

Hand-harvested off the Southern coast of the South Island of New Zealand. This sea algae is pumped full of antioxidants rich minerals from pristine streams that come up from the Antarctic, providing long-lasting hydration and skin brightening benefits.

A natural form of Vitamin A and essential fatty acids, especially omega-3 (linolenic acid) and omega-6 (linoleic acid) to soften skin and improve skin barrier function. Wild-harvested from Wanaka.

Packed with nutritious linoleic acid (omega 6), which helps maintain our skin’s natural barrier, and both hydrates and moisturises.

How To Use

After washing face at night, wait a few minutes until your skin is completely dry then apply over face and neck. When it feels like it’s all soaked in, follow with your favourite moisturiser. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding.

New to Retinoids?
Start out using it every third day for two weeks, then every other day for two weeks, gradually working your way up to nightly use. Retinoids work their magic by boosting skin cell turnover so consistency is key. Don’t exfoliate on the nights you use retinoids because it may cause irritation. Always always wear SPF during the day when on a retinoid programme.

Pro tip: Make sure to start with dry skin. While we encourage moisturising products to be used on damp skin to help the actives absorb better, this does not apply to retinoids - they are powerful enough on dry skin. Also, consistency is key - we start to see skin smoothing results after a few weeks but the real hallelujah moment is after about three to six months of use.

Amazing, love love love

I adore moonbeam. I use both formulas but adore the results from PM best!!

So buttery, my favourite skincare product!

RAAIE's Yellow Moonbeam Retinal Elixir is the best skincare product I have ever used. It feels creamy and luxurious when applying to the skin, then sinks in leaving a lightweight, buttery soft feel. When I momentarily returned to my previous retinol product, my skin felt tight and dry after only one use. It's incredible that the actives are clearly working overtime to blur fine lines and keep my skin looking youthful and plump, and yet the product is still so gentle and soothing.

Retinol Elixir

Like the serum lovely to apply and will await with interest the result!!

Hi Phillipa, thanks for your review! Keep us posted on how you’re going :)

Here is what you can expect in terms of timings for the results: 3-6 months is where you really start to see the seriously noticeable results (because the serum works at cellular level to boost collagen and thicken the deeper layer of skin where wrinkles begin to form). But many of our customers report seeing the firming, smoothing, instagram-filter effect much earlier! Let us know if you have any questions. Team RAAIE x

BEST serum!

I am extremely picky with skincare, a lot of boxes to tick (ethical, sustainable, effective, safe and no strong scents). Raaie’s moonbeam ticks all the boxes. Feels so good on my skin, smells divine, leaves you dewy and fresh. I’ve been using this serum for over 6 weeks now (every second day) and I am blown away by the results. My skin is visibly tighter, even tone, pores less visible, sun spots faded and overall more bright. I am fortunate to have good skin naturally but years of sun exposure without sunscreen has done some damage and I am very surprised that this serum has started to reverse a lot of this damage. I did not expect results like this, let alone in such little time. Applying this has become a ritual for my evening routine. Love it and couldn’t recommend it enough.
