The ideal Retinol for beginners to introduce your skin to this powerful ingredient. Specially formulated with a slow-release, less irritating form of Retinol, the skin-renewing serum targets first signs of aging and hyperpigmentation. Working to visibly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and overall skin tone and texture with continued improvement over time.​ ​

Hero ingredient Retinyl Acetate is a derivative of vitamin A and works to gently resurface and enhance surface skin cell turnover, improving appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. This form of slow-release Retinol has been specifically chosen as a gentler anti aging serum option. The added Squalane, a key antioxidant ingredient, provides additional hydrating and soothing benefits whilst helping to smooth skin's appearance.​ ​

If you are looking to reduce the appearance of post-acne scars, wrinkles and dark spots, once your skin is comfortable with our Retinol Serum, upgrade to the next level with our higher-strength Scar, Mark, and Wrinkle Solution with 1% Retinol.

Suitable for:

  • All Skin Types

Targets:

  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven Skin Tone & Texture

  • "So I must tell you my skin used to look really dull and highly pigmented. I came across your products specially having acne scars and spots I thought of going with Retinol Serum and Vitamin C Serum, and now I can't believe how my skin looks. It just boosted my confidence and makes me feel sooo good. Thank you!"

    I received my retinol today. It's yellow and it smells rotten. As far as I know it should be odorless and clear.

    Hello Lale,

    Thank you for sharing your review with us! Due to the nature of Retinol this can vary across shades of yellow and is quite normal to see. Our products are also free or fragrance and any smell they do impart is due to the formulation and nothing to worry about, if you would like further reassurance however, please do reach out to our Customer Experience Team via help@theinkeylist.com where we can support you further with this 🖤
