Five of the best Retinol products

By  |  0 Comments
RETINOL has been the buzzword of anti-ageing skincare for quite some time.
The substance, a form of retinoid which is essentially pure vitamin A, helps to increase skin cell turn-over and collagen production and is the only proven ingredient to help fight wrinkles.
Worshipped by beauty editors and dermatologists, it’s become the number one must haves for those who want to slay away those pesky lines.
This week we’ve picked five of the best Retinol products on the market.

Murad Retinol Youth Renewing Night Cream

THIS luxurious, age-defying night cream zaps and smooths the look of wrinkles.
Formulated with a potent Retinol formula, it melts into skin and starts getting to work while you sleep.
Limit using this to just a few times per week if you’re new to Retinol as skin can start peeling slightly upon first use.
This will target the toughest lines and wrinkles while helping to improve firmness and elasticity.
If you’re in your late 20s and 30s, this is a staple investment that will remain firmly part of your beauty regime.


The Ordinary Advanced Retinol 2 per cent




AN oldie but a goodie, this is the most affordable Retinol product on the high street.
Costing a mere £5.50, this can be used 3-4 times a week in combination with some of The Ordinary’s other cult serums.
For best results, use three drops of this after The Ordinary’s Niacinamide and Buffet for tighter, more refined skin.
Expect a slight amount of flaking and peeling to the skin once you start using as it removes dead layers from your face.
Most Retinol products on the market are 1 per cent so be careful when using such a high dosage.
Make sure you use an SPF the following day because this increases skin sensitivity and could increase the chances of sun damage.



Beauty Pie Overnight Gentle Retinol Balm




A MUST have product for summer, this gentle Retinol balm helps you wake up with flawless skin.
Achieve a hydrated, perfectly-smooth, refined complexion with this genius Swiss mix of super hydrator- Hyaluronic Acid, nourishing Shea Butter, antioxidant Portulaca Vita, hydrating anti-wrinkle Argan Oil and soothing panthenol.
Skin feels baby soft after application and pores look smaller and more refined.
Use twice-a-week as super skin booster before big occasions.



Perricone MD Firming Evening Repair Serum






UP your Retinol game with a serum that contains multiple key sciences for results you can see.
Featuring anti-ageing ingredients to dramatically reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration over time, this can be used at night for firmer, plumper skin.
It also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, a master antioxidant which reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores, while DMAE helps visibly lift sagging skin over time.



La Roche-Posay Redermic R Retinol Serum






FOR a formula which feels ultra-light on the skin, this is the perfect Retinol serum.
It helps dig deep to smooth uneven texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and fade hyperpigmentation.
The formula is noncomedogenic, non-greasy, and gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. Glycerin, sodium hyaluronate, and plant oils also offer a moisture boost.
