Looking for a moisturizer that isn't going to comment on my age.

Can you recommend a paraben-free, relatively
earthy-crunchy, nighttime moisturizer that both contains retinol and does not bray "I'M OLD AND I LOOK OLD" all over the packaging?

I'm looking for a nighttime moisturizer-type thing that will quietly do its job in a non-depressing way.
I just want a moisturizer, I don't want to wrestle with my mortality or whether my views on aging are appropriately feminist, realistic, dignified, or whatever -- I just want to take care of my face and not spend a brief moment each day contemplating my age and the increasing number of concerns surrounding it.
I recognize that most people don't feel this way, because otherwise half of what I look at wouldn't be slathered with "Anti-aging" "anti-wrinkle" cream, so I do understand some people will think this is ridiculous, but nonetheless, here I am.
