    • Why it's Cult

      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.

    • How to use

      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.

      External use only.

    THE INKEY LIST - Retinol Serum

    THE INKEY LIST Retinol Serum Reviews

    Retinol
    Too early to say if it works yet, I’ve had no irritation from using it.
    Smooth and glowy
    Love the texture but weird smell. But still, love this product. Skin texture becoming smooth and no irritation. Probably will repurchase. Can wait to explore another product from this brand. Last but not least the packaging is very convenient for travelling small and plastic tube.
    Inkey Retinol
    Too soon to make a judgement - but good product & a little goes a long way
    Will absolutely buy again
    Love this retinol so much. I had previously purchased other retinol products, but this one is fabulous and a fraction of the price. I can feel and see it working, but it’s not too harsh and lasts for ages. I’ll keep purchasing this again and again, well done Inkey List
    Best yet
    I am an ex The ordinary user and decided to research other brands as the current Deciem drama unfolds. I'm glad I went down this road and I now actually prefer The Inkey List. I was worried about using 1% Retinol, but the texture of the serum is fantastic and although my neck is a little sensitive to it, my face has already started to look more fresh. My only gripe is that the consistency of the serum is a little bit too runny for the tub it is in and I often have some leaking out. I don't want to waste a drop, so I just store it upside down.
    Amazing
    I have been using this for around a week and my skin feels amazing! I have not broken out (a fear for me). I am very happy with the results thus far and cannot wait to buy again. For the price and results I'd recommend 100%
    Made me break out
    I’ve used retinol before and never had an issue but this made me break out. Maybe it’s too strong for me
    Retinol
    This serum is lovely and smooth and you only need a very small amount as a little goes a long way. I've been using it every night and it's not harsh at all, can't say I have noticed a difference yet but I have only had it a few weeks, it does feel nice when it goes onto the skin, not at all sticky, it does have a slightly strange smell but not too strong.
    The best retinol I've used
    Very good product, definitely the most effective retinol product I've used. A little goes a long way. Very happy with this purchase.
    Love it
    This is easily as good as any retinol on the market and better than most, and I have been using retinol products for many years now. The formulation is great it feels comfortable sinks in well leaves my skin feeling smooth. I had no peeling or discomfort so it obviously suits my aging skin and it has lasted well over six weeks. I would pay a lot more for this product but I am glad it's so reasonably priced. Its effective, accessible and easy to use. Love it
    Retinol
    Omg, this retinol is brilliant, such a pleasure to use, so light and sinks in straight away, and no nasty smell, my skin is transformed in the morning, much smoother, firmer and more of an even skin tone, highly recommend this product.
    Lovely Texture, Smooth Skin
    I've only ever used one retinol before but it was oil based and I found it really hard to layer so I was a bit skeptical when I saw this contained Squalane. However, the texture is lovely. Somewhere between a serum and a cream but definitely not oily but moisturising and feels hydrating. My skin feels really smooth in the morning after use and my skin texture has really improved. Would definitely recommend.
