Retinol + Peptides + Niacinamide

Double Play Retinol Face & Eye Treatment

Double Play has been dermatologist-approved for use as a face and eye anti-aging cream. The chemists formulated a gentle, stabilized 0.3% encapsulated retinol bolstered with 2% haloxyl peptide complex to tackle wrinkles, pigmentation, and dark circle concerns. Buh-bye, tiny jars of eye cream!

*In a 12-week blinded clinical study with 35 women, Double Play significantly improved 4 major skin concerns: overall pigmentation, wrinkles, crow's feet, and dark circles. See the full Double Play journey here!


How to use

Double Play is a dual-purpose cocktail of retinol and peptides. This light gel cream has been dermatologist-approved to tackle your wrinkles and dark circles for both the face & eye area.


Just starting your retinol journey? Welcome! Use Double Play 3 times a week nightly for two weeks. Once you feel your skin has a good handle on Double Play, increase frequency to nightly. Don’t forget your sunscreen!


Apply this formula to the crows feet and under eye area to tackle all your eye concerns. No need to buy extra little jars of eye stuff.

Pssst...did you know?

Double Play has been CC’s biggest project expense to date because of all the testing, re-validating, safety testing for the eye area, and clinical testing that the chemists needed to be confident in an efficacious but gentle formula!

Ingredients List & Actives Profiles

You shouldn’t need a degree in chemistry to take care of your skin. But, to be clear, someone needs the degree.

Wrinkle Fighter

0.3% Encapsulated Retinol

The chemists searched high and low for just the right encapsulated retinol, because there are plenty of duds in the encapsulated retinol space. Double Play contains 0.3% active retinol that is tested to be stable inside our airless pump tube for its entire shelf life.


2% Haloxyl Complex

A timeless peptide blend that strategically targets eye area concerns. 2% haloxyl alone has been clinically tested to have a significant improvement in dark circles after 8 weeks of use.

Barrier Helpers

2% Niacinamide

We all love our retinol but it's just one of those ingredients that could cause skin irritation. To help ease your skin into its retinoid journey, we've equipped the Double Play with 2% niacinamide (plus additional algae polysaccharides) to buff up your skin barrier.
