The Inkey List Retinol

The Inkey List Retinol

Since receiving the Inkey List Retinol Serum as a gift, I'd been using it on and of, or not very frequently to see any changes, but recently I've been using it more consistently and have noticed some improvement to my skin.

The Inkey List Retinol is designed for ages 25+ and to help to reduce wrinkles. Formulated with 1% Retistar (a stabilised retinol compound) and 0.5% Granactive Retinoid in a slow release formula to avoid irritation, plus Squalane to help hydrate and protect the skin.

Other ingredients worth mentioning are brightening Sodium Ascorbate, two forms of soothing vitamin E, and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 which work as anti-inflammatory and collagen boosting peptides, respectively. 

At first I was scared of it drying out my skin as I've used pure retinoic acid before however this didn't cause any of the extreme dryness and peeling that retinoic acid did. As I got more comfortable using it I began alternating it with glycolic acid and my skin got extremely dry so I stopped using either product.

Fast forward to a month later and I finally started using the Inkey List Retinol almost nightly. I have noticed that my skin feels very smooth in the morning (when I've used it the previous night) and it also has helped reduce some hyperpigmentation, both from breakouts and stubborn sun damage, which is great. 

In terms of pores and texture, there seems to be some improvement as well, however I don't really have any reference pictures from before using it so unfortunately I can't compare. 

The only thing I don't love about the Inkey List Retinol is the packaging, as the serum is quite runny and trying to put the cap on the tube to close it becomes tricky as I try not to let the serum run down my finger and drip on the floor. I had to keep the tube stored upside down until near the end to avoid this. A pump bottle would work so much better for this serum.

If you are new to retinoids and are looking for an affordable retinol serum that won't cause peeling or irritation then I would definitely recommend giving the Inkey List Retinol a try.
