  • Benefits
  • Application
  • Ingredients


A combination of science and botanical ingredients help firm skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.

Conditioning moisturizers help attract and retain vital moisture in the skin.

Helps to even skin tone by reducing the look of acne scars, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.

Free radical-fighting antioxidants defend skin from environmental stress that can cause inflammation and damage to collagen and elastin.

Acne is caused when oil, hair and dead skin cells clog pores. Ingredients such as Salicylic Acid and AGP Complex help stimulate cell turnover to curb breakouts.

Improved texture and proper product absorption is due to exfoliation. When the surface layer of the skin is removed, fresh skin is revealed and can absorb active ingredients easier.

AGP Complex – a microencapsulated retinol for oily, congested and acne-prone skin – encourages skin renewal to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections.

For those with severe gluten sensitivities or Dermatitis Herpetiformis, rest assured this product is gluten free.



Apply a small amount to freshly cleansed and toned skin as tolerated every 1-3 nights, working up to nightly use. Follow with recommended moisturizer. Protect your results by wearing sunscreen daily.


We do not recommend this product for use in the AM as it may cause skin sensitivity to sun exposure.

May be blended with Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals for added firming and brightening effects.

Love this product!
I was looking for something that will resurface my skin and keep my cells turning over. Amazing results!!! I must have this in my skin regimen. Easy to use.

Love it!!!
I actually accidentally ordered this product recently. I had just run out of Define and went to purchase again. Somehow, I accidentally ordered Refine. Oops! Well, I looked through the ingredient list and realized that this was also a good product to use for the results I desire. Anyway. I LOVE this product. My skin looked great when I woke up after the first night using it. The tone of my skin looks so even and there really is a glow to my face. I personally had no sensitivity to the product and have been using it every night for a little over a week now. I'm very happy with this mistake and will buy Refine again!

Something Finally Helped My Adult Acne
This product was the missing piece in my struggle against adult acne. I use it every three days so I do not become irritated and it is really helping clear my skin. I use this in conjunction with the purity clean, lightening, phytoclear and spray on SPF by Cosmedix. It has the best smell ever and smooths on like a dream.

My skin has never looked ...
My skin has never looked as good as it does with Cosmedix products.

This is a wonderful product. I got immediate results from this product and everyday just brings better skin. It improved the texture, appearance, fine lines, evened out skintone, got rid of blackheads, shrinks and closed pores. What can I say, the results will prove themselves. You only need a pea size. It took years off my appearance and revealed younger looking skin. It does everything it states and more. Try it, you won't be disapointed.

Compliments are the proof
It is always difficult to know what works and what doesn't when it comes to skin care. However, I have found that ever since I've used Cosmedix, and as each year goes by, my skin seems to stay the point that people always tell me how great my skin is. They are also always surprised that I'm my age...they think I'm often 5 to 7 years younger.Other than compliments and responses from others, there is really no other way to know how great your skincare line is!The only thing I will warn against is using this product below your jaw line. It will irritate the skin on your neck. My aesthetician has told me that this is due to the lack of oil in your skin on your don't use it there.

Wonderful but strong
I have used Purity Clean and Clarity for several years and decided to try this. I had one dark spot from the sun and this definitely lightened it. Word of caution though - even though this is very light going on, it is very strong. I used it a bit too enthusiastically at first and my skin got dry and peeled slightly. Three x per week at night is enough. I use Clarity during the day and in between applications of this at night.

Best retinol product I've tried
As an esthetician I am always searching for new ways to find the fountain of youth for myself and my clients. Refine is the nicest, easiest to use, and least irritating retinol product I've tried. I can confidently recommend it to my clients knowing it won't irritate their skin or cause unnecessary peeling. I often mix it with Defy for even better results. Thanks!

Clear, Smooth, Fresh, New Me!!
I started using this product a few years ago.. and it has changed my Skin forever!! It was recommended to me after I found out I had a small amount of sun damage. I used it for a few months along with the Vitamin C powder and started to notice a smooth clear appearance with much less pores! My makeup went on smooth and my face looked flawless. My Company offered a service where a group of health care providers come in to check you to see if you have sun damage so I signed up. I put my head in the little black window and the lady told me to take my head out so she could talk with me. She said "I have gone to thousands of job sites and seen thousands and thousands of faces and yours has NO sun damage and the most moisture balance face I've ever seen.!!" I told her all about the products!!! I will never stop using this Refine!!!!!!

Love Cosmedix
I love Cosmedix, but I love Refine the most. I have used many of the products and I find that they deliver result. I had less breakouts, smaller pores improved pigmentation. I got the best results when combining with the Timeless peel. I love these products and am a loyal customer.
Review by njm73 / (Posted on 5/17/2017)
I have struggled with my skin for years and have tried product upon product, pills, various routines, diet you name it and have found nothing that works until now! I came across cosmedix when searching for effective spot treatments. At first the price worried me a little but after reading the reviews I decided I must try it. I am currently using the Purity Clean as a morning and nightly wash, I then use Refine either nightly or every two days depending on how my skin is feeling and i apply Clarity Serum every morning and my skin has improved so much and so quickly. It's a financial commitment but I'm so happy that I've finally found something that works for me.

Great Product
I have used Rx retinols in the past and it was too harsh for my breakout prone and sensitive skin. Now I use this nightly and my skin is more clear and pores are smaller. I'm on my third bottle and I don't imagine I'll ever stop using Refine.

Acne diminished!
It's so exciting to me that I am actually able to write a review on a SKIN CARE product that has WORKED! I have oily/acne prone skin with even some big cystic acne here and there. This product was referred to me by an esthetician who carries and uses only natural products in her salon, so I was a bit skeptical at first. I started using this serum in September religiously, like, never skipped a night! I got a little dry at first but then my skin balanced out and I have never seen results like this. I actually feel comfortable NOT wearing foundation for once in my life! Even my parents and boyfriend noticed a difference. Not everyone's skin is the same but if you have tried everything and not this... try it! I've tried clinique, origins, dermalogica and none of them worked at all as well. A little spendy but worth every penny in my opinion. I have now worked up to Refine Plus! THANK YOU COSMEDIX

smoothing product!
My esthetician highly recommended this product for my skin, which frequently breaks out. I have only used it for 3 weeks and it has lessened my breakouts, and dramatically smoothed the texture of my skin. I use it at night 3 times per week and wake up the next morning with radiant skin. I love this product so far and am looking forward to continued better skin.
