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.

First time user

I discovered retinol by reading an article about it and this was recommended in it. Although I haven’t tried any others, I’ve heard from different skincare sources that this is one of the best. I had no bad reaction to it, despite having sensitive skin, and noticed the difference in my skin very quickly, especially with scars I had from maskne! Will definitely be buying again.

Great long-term results

Waited six weeks to leave this review since that’s the term for skin cell turnover. This is a great product but it will not deliver immediate results so a ton of patience is required. You shouldn’t expect it to work on its own as it needs to be one component in a holistic skincare routine. It needs to be complemented by a sunscreen and a moisturizer to deliver the best results. After six weeks, it improved the appearance of some of my deepest acne scarring (and I truly mean years of acne scarring). Overall, the evenness and tone of my skin has improved, but continuing to build the levels of this product in my skin will be the only savior going forward.

Amazing!

I’ve wanted to try the inkey list for a while and i’m very glad i did, this doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. I’ve used it every other day after niacinamide for a month now and it hasn’t dried out my skin or irritated it in anyway. I had lots of dark acne scars on my cheeks that have been there for years and now they’re almost completely gone in just a month!! definitely recommend.

Unsure

Still early days have been building up slowly to everyday use. No breakouts or anything so far, has left my skin feeling softer and looking more fresh. It does smell a bit like curry though which I find bizarre and noticed another customer found the same! It's not a super strong or obvious smell... and nobody has commented... but I'm not sure why it has a curry tinge to it!

My mum loves this

I bought this for my mum (she’s in her mid 40s), she started on a 0.2% retinal and then this and has no problems with irritation and she’s happy with the results it’s giving her in reducing her wrinkles!

Visibly smaller pores, but prepare to play "chase the tube cap"

This product is amazing and I've repurchased it a few times. It's a simple no nonsense retinol treatment that has visibly improved the size of the pores on my cheeks and forehead. Yes, there's the usual retinol break out at the beginning, but this is a really good product and it has worked well with every other serum, oil or moisturiser I've paired it with. I do keep dropping the cap of the tube, so a flip top would be amazing, but otherwise this product is perfect.

Great

so far works well just like any other inkey product. i use it with other stuff as well so it would be hard to determine if this alone does the magic but it has been a consistent part of my routine

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!
