Retinol Serum

\ ret-in-all \ seer-uhm \
Derived from Vitamin A, this slow release Retinol Serum is an anti-aging serum that helps target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with less risk of irritation.

Ideal for normal, oily, dry or combination skin, it also boosts overall skin clarity and uneven skin tone for a brighter, more even complexion. A perfect introduction to using slow release Retinol Serum for those who are starting to see the signs of ageing.

Behind the scenes, linked to our sustainability goals, we have been busy working to improve our formulations. ​You may have noticed that Retinyl acetate now appears in place of Retinol within the INCI list of our Retinol Serum. This will mean any reviews posted prior to July 2022 may refer to the previous Retinol Serum formulation (which contained a non sustainable palm source).

Disappointed customer

I ordered this product few weeks ago and I finally got it last week.

Excited as hell to try it after the long wait, Upon using it today, this was the Color I saw when I squeezed. Imagine if I didn’t squeeze on my palm before applying it, It would have been a disaster.

So Unhappy and disappointed

Effective and excellent value

Bought on a whim - didn’t need a second thought. Great results, doesn’t “burn” and dry skin like retinol has for me before. Excellent price- use every other night with retinol eye cream - also great results. Go for it!

Excellent

The product is probably the best retinol-based thing I've tried (just a small warning, you have to get used to retinol, so don't start directly with this one).

I've seen the results after two weeks of application, it improves the surface of the skin quite quickly.

Loved it, will buy again.

Game changer!!

I have suffered with hormonal acne and oily skin since I was a teenager. I had tried everything to clear my skin to no avail.

I have used my inkey list skincare routine for around 1.5 years now and my skin had improved but I’d still get the monthly breakouts even at 32! I decided to try retinol after doing some research into how retinol can help with acne. I’m only 1 week in and my skin in clear for the first time in years. I don’t have one single active spot on my face and red marks from previous spots are reducing. My skin also hasn’t been as oily and makeup is lasting longer throughout the day and the skin texture is smoother.

I’m hoping this is something that will continue and I’m also yet to see how my skin will react at that time of the month but so far I am loving it. If you’re thinking of buying this then I’d say it’s worth a try to see if it helps.

Also the smell isn’t that bad.
