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).

    Great product!

    I use it 2 -3 times/week, in the evening. I recently started to use retinol but so far I like it. When I apply it, it does tingle a little but just for a few minutes. It has a light texture, my skin feels smoth and soft in the morning.

    Great Product!

    I've been using this product for about 2-3 months now, I use it twice a week. I haven't really used retinol products before, and I wanted to try it out! The smell doesn't bother me very much it honestly goes away the minute or so after you've applied the product to your skin! It feels pretty similar to the omega water cream however it absorbs quicker! I honestly, feel that it has been helping and making a difference to my skin! Great product!

    Gentle and effective

    This has been my go-to retinol product for a while. Lovely light emulsion sinks in quickly and does not irritate my skin, my favourite from the over-the-counter retinoids. Long-term commitment to retinol is probably one of the reasons, why I still have pretty good skin.

    Amazing — perfect beginner retinol

    I have used products with retinol in them, but usually as an added benefit and not enough for it to do much in my opinion (make up, tinted moisturizer, etc). I began with a prescription tret that destroyed my skin — extremely irritated and peeling around my mouth and under my eyes. I was nervous to start retinol again after that, but having turned 27 I knew I had to figure it out sooner rather than later. The Inkey sent me this and I am IN LOVE. My mini is about half way gone and I will definitely be reordering in the future. My skin showed zero irritation and the purging was minimal (only the areas I typically break out in so I know it was a purge and not a reaction). It really brought those stubborn acne areas to the surface! Totally worth the purge if it will keep those areas at bay by increasing cell turnover. I used a hydraulic acid serum under it each night to help with potential irritation but I do not think I need it — it’s gentle and effective!

    Magic

    Athough my skin looks visibly clear, on close up it has the under skin spots and bumpiness that has always made make up go on funny. I have sensitive and combo skin, and I have tried so many different AHA’s and BHA’s from salicylic and glycolic, to lactic and the rest. None have worked on smoothing out my skin texture. I have been using this product for ONE week and have never seen such a drastic difference in my skin, it feels SO smooth and soft, and has visibly reduced so much of the bumpiness and skin texture. When I apply it, it does tingle a little because of my sensitive skin, but I just apply la roche posay cicaplast baume on top to soothe and now I can happily say I’ve found my holy grail. It’s a great retinol, will absolutely be buying again.
