Who is it for?

All skin types


The ideal Retinol for beginners to introduce your skin to this powerful ingredient. Specially formulated with a slow-release, less irritating form of Retinol, the skin-renewing serum targets first signs of aging and hyperpigmentation. Working to visibly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and overall skin tone and texture with continued improvement over time.​​

Hero ingredient Retinyl Acetate is a derivative of vitamin A and works to gently resurface and enhance surface skin cell turnover, improving appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. This form of slow-release Retinol has been specifically chosen as a gentler anti ageing serum option. The added Squalane, a key antioxidant ingredient, provides additional hydrating and soothing benefits whilst helping to smooth skin's appearance.​​

The rate at which our skin renews slows down as we age. Retinol helps to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production, kick-starting cells back into action.

  • Combines 1% stable retinol and 0.5% granactive retinoid (slightly stronger than retinol) with squalene for hydration and soothing
  • Slow release formula minimises irritation
  • Effective active delivery systems work to minimise fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tackles blemishes and improves skin clarity

How to Use:

  • Use in the evening after cleansing and toning, and before other serums
  • Apply a pea sized amount to the fingers and gently tap into the skin
  • For some people redness and flakiness may occur at the beginning of use due to the increase in cell turnover. When first using Retinol, you may wish to use a few times per week and gradually increase to every evening.
  • Not recommended for use with alpha hydroxy acids (lactic acid and glycolic acid) or vitamin C
  • Only use Retinol Serum in your PM skincare routine.
  • After cleansing and hydrating with The Inkey List Hyaluronic Acid Serum, apply a pea-sized amount of Retinol Serum and massage into to the face and neck.
  • For the fragile skin around the eyes, we recommend using The Inkey List Retinol Eye Cream. Follow with your preferred moisturizer. Start off using it 1-2 times per week and increase gradually if your skin can tolerate more frequent use.
  • When layering treatments, work from the thinnest to thickest consistency. Waiting a minute or so between applying each treatment will also help to avoid pilling.
  • If you have more sensitive skin, use Niacinamide before Retinol Serum to help decrease irritation.
