Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles

Skincare by The INKEY List


Out of stock


Derived from Vitamin A, The INKEY List Retinol Serum is an anti-aging serum that helps target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with less risk of irritation.

Ideal for normal, oily, dry or combination skin. It also boosts overall skin clarity and uneven skin tone for a brighter, more even complexion. A perfect introduction to using The INKEY List Retinol Serum for those who are starting to see the signs of ageing.


  • 1% RetiStar stabilised Retinol
  • Squalane for hydration and soothing

As Retinol speeds up skin renewal, newer skin reaches the surface quicker. This can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. That is why the Retinol Serum is recommended in the PM while always using a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day.

The INKEY List do not recommend using Retinol Serum and Vitamin C at the same time. It is best to use Retinol in the PM. So, if using a Vitamin C, they would recommend using this in the morning. If you are also using AHAs (Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid or Apple Cider Vinegar), BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acid, C-50 Blemish Treatment) or PHA Toner in your evening routine, and want to add Retinol Serum, they suggest using these on alternate evenings and ensuring you start off slowly to ensure you do not sensitise the skin.

If your skin is on the sensitive side, The INKEY List would not recommend Retinol Serum. They recommend patch testing before just to be on the safe side in case any irritation occurs. To patch test, apply a small amount of product to your inner arm. Then wait 24/48 hours to see if any irritation occurs.

This product is not recommended if pregnant or breastfeeding.

Only use Retinol in the PM. On cleansed skin, and after Hyaluronic Acid if you are using it, apply a pea-sized amount and massage into to the face and neck. Follow with moisturizer, oil or both depending on preference. Start off using it 2-3 times per week and increase gradually if your skin can tolerate more frequent use.
