The INKEY List Retinol Serum 30ml

Also known as ‘Your Beauty Translator’, THE INKEY LIST’s aim is simple: break through beauty jargon to deliver a straightforward take on skin care’s most-wanted ingredients (at astoundingly reasonable, ‘give-it-a-go’ prices). A superstar ingredient for a reason, retinol helps to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production, leaving skin brighter, smoother and more youthful-looking. This slow-release formula minimises irritation and maximises results, leaving fine lines and wrinkles minimised and skin tone more even than ever.

A derivative of vitamin A, retinol helps to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production to keep skin looking youthful, working at a cellular level to promote renewal and repair processes so that newer cells reach the surface quicker. As we age, the rate at which our skin renews itself slows down (sob) so retinol can be a great way of kick-starting cells back into action. Providing the highest quality ingredients formulated by a crack team of scientists and experts, THE INKEY LIST’s answer to retinol is sublime in its simplicity, uniting 1% stable Retistar retinol (the equivalent of 0.05% retinol) and 0.5% granactive retinoid (slightly stronger than retinol) with squalane for hydration and soothing. The slow-release formula minimises irritation while providing effective active delivery, working hard to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone tackle blemishes and improve skin clarity, leaving your complexion looking brighter, smoother and miles more youthful.

Suitable for all skin types.

Use in the PM after cleansing and toning and before other serums

Apply a pea-sized amount to the fingers and gently tap into the skin

Avoid the immediate eye area.

May increase sun sensitivity; always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day.

Whilst THE INKEY LIST Retinol has a low irritation formula, for some people redness and flakiness may occur at the beginning of use due to the increase in cell turnover.

When first introducing Retinol, you may wish to use a few times per week and gradually increase to every evening.

Great but..

Great product, an amazing retinol for beginners! Prepare for the feared purge but it’s worth it for sure! However, the packaging is awful, hard to get the right amount without accidentally squeezing out too much and suuuper annoying to close as it is a screw top. Please dear Inkey List, give us better packaging for your products!

Solid retinol serum for beginners

I was very anxious to start using retinol, but definitely want to reap the multiple benefits it comes with. This one by The Inkey List is great if you're looking to dabble in the world of anti-aging skincare. I mostly struggle with dullness, texture and some hyperpigmentation and this product has definitely helped improve a lot of that, but you might need to switch up to a stronger product at some point. If you have very sensitive or reactive skin like myself, you might want to layer some hydrating products underneath or do the sandwich method ( moisturizer + retinol + moisturizer )

I have never had a 'skin routine' before but decided as I get older I should try. This product just feels great and when I wake up my skin feels lovely.

A super gentle product combining 2 types of retinoids raising the chances of retinoids benefits avoiding irritation and preparing the skin for higher percentages in the future. After trying various retionids I would recommend this serum to my friends and newbies!

Great product

I have often paid far far more for products and had nothing like this positive effect. It has made a really noticeable difference and I am going to extend my range.
