A POWERFUL VITAMIN-A SERUM TO SMOOTH & CORRECT SKIN TONE & TEXTURE
We believe that there are not many issues that Retinol can’t help to improve. A hard-working form of Vitamin A, we recommend it to help with a range of concerns from breakouts to acne scarring and premature ageing to pigmentation. As Vitamin A is highly sensitive to air and light, we’ve protected our skinstitut Retinol by using an encapsulated form of Vitamin A within an advanced delivery system to not only preserve its potency but to help to calm the skin and minimise any associated irritation.
FOR MOST SKIN TYPES, EXCEPT SENSITIVE. BEST FOR ACNE, ACNE SCARRING, PREMATURE AGEING, & PIGMENTATION
Retinol is considered one of skincare’s superheroes, particularly when it comes to targeting acne and premature ageing. It works to refine, retexturize, and strengthen the skin by helping to increase Collagen production while also helping to improve tone, fade pigment and scarring, soften skin texture, and reboot radiance. Our skinstitut Retinol is further boosted with peptides to further fortify the skin from within.
KEY INGREDIENTS: Encapsulated Retinol, SYN®-AKE (synthetic peptide), peptides, and Olive Extract
WHY WE LOVE IT:
It’s the ultimate all-rounder with the ability to target a range of concerns from breakouts and acne scarring to pigmentation and age spots.
It’s super active and delivers real results that proudly stare back at you in the mirror
It doesn’t just refine the skin but strengthens it by helping to boost Collagen and Elastin production to strengthen your skin from within
A little goes a long way
HOW TO USE IT:
For the first week of use, start by using one pea-sized amount of Retinol every third evening. For the second week, apply the same amount every second evening, gradually building up to every evening by the third week of use.
Apply to clean, dry skin and gently blend outwards in a circular motion, slowly spreading onto the entire face, throat and chest while avoiding the eye area.
Please note: it’s quite normal to experience some initial redness and/or some dryness or flakiness when first using Retinol. Keep the faith and your skin will normalise but if you’re at all concerned, double check you’re using the right amount as a first step and consult your skin therapist as a second.
**For external use only. Rinse thoroughly with water if eye contact occurs. Discontinue if skin irritation occurs.
You can boost Retinol’s results by adding a sprinkle of our Vitamin C 100% into it to amplify the brightening effect.

“For my skin, Retinol has been a game changer. It’s really helped to clear up my pimples, fade my acne scars, and to make my skin just look much smoother and more even. You do need to follow the directions and not use too much too often, especially when you first start using it as it’s pretty active.” - Yasmin
