Most Helpful Positive



This product applies so nicely and I've already noticed a more dewy and hydrated appearance in my skin, particularly when combined with other alpha h products

Most Helpful Criticism



To be honest, I didn't notice too much after using the bottle of this Vitamin A. I know it is a good one to start on because it is low strength, however haven't noticed much.

  3. On the Fence


    I'm on the fence with one. I'm not sure if it really has made a difference to my skin. I don't love it but I don't hate it. Will try other Vit As
  4. Good first timer retinol


    If you’re new to using retinol or a little bit worried about using it, this would be your go-to. It has a wonderful consistency, gentle but works well. If you’re like me and dabbled in retinol before this may not be your favourite option however I do use it when I feel like a more gentle retinol. I would purchase again.
  5. One of my faves!


    This is one of my favourite serums. It has beautiful consistency and smell. It plumps my skin up almost instantly. It works wonders when I apply it in the evenings before my Liquid Gold 24 Hour Moisture Repair Cream - Fine lines fill in completely, and my skin has a beautiful smooth finish. I've only been using it a couple weeks, but I'm excited to see what it does long term!
  6. Great intro to Vit A


    Really good product to start my Vitamin A journey. Really gentle, feels great on the skin, and didn't react to it. That being said, I've finished the bottle and haven't noticed any major differences in my skin, fingers crossed for long term results, but I'll be switching it up to slightly stronger Vit A next.
  7. Good starter retinol


    This product is nice and light and seeps into the skin well. It is a low amount of retinol so good for beginners, I have found it helps reduce my dark pigmentation from acne. Good product overall.
  8. My skin loves it

    hannah b

    Texture is super silky and I usually apply this after using the Alpha-H Micro Scrub and my skin just loves it. I can see a change in that my skin feels more hydrated and brighter.
  9. Quite nice!


    verified purchaser
    This product is a gentle intro to retinol. I haven't noticed a massive difference in my skin, a part from slight dryness and peeling when I use it.
  10. Great Vitamin A Starter


    Really lovely, reasonably priced vitamin A serum! It is on the lower strength side, so great for newbies.
  11. Good intro retinol


    A good introduction to retinol. I have rosacea and sensitive skin so I was concerned about introducing retinol into my routine but I haven't had any issues with this gentle one! Am only using twice a week but so far so good!
  12. Potent and seems to be good quality


    This is the first Vitamin A I've used so have nothing to compare it to, however, I really like how my skin looks and feels the next morning after using it in a simple nighttime routine. Using lass seems to be more beneficial when it comes to Alpha H so I'm having to discipline myself to just use a quality night moisturiser over the top and not try to layer other products over it first.
  13. An excellent introduction to retinol


    Having turned 24, I realised that I wanted to ramp up my skincare routine with the use of acid exfoliates and retinol for anti ageing. This retinol is very gentle and doesn’t make my skin burn, itch, or cause any real sensitivity at all. For good measure, I mix it in with a ceramide serum and a ceramide emulsion (all three products together in the palm of my hand) to ensure my skin has lots of moi...

  14. Nice product


    I haven't notice any difference since using this product. Nice texture, soft and milky. But packaging is terrible, pipette dropper stopped working after couple of times of using.
  15. Good beginner vitamin a


    I feel this product is for those who are unsure about vitamin a serums because this is a lower dose and buffered by a lot of other good ingredients. The texture isn't too runny and glides on skin easily. It's a slightly milky, yellowish in colour and absorbs on skin quickly.
  16. Surprised that my skin reacts badly to this product


    pros: - lightweight texture, smells beautiful and doesn't sting / tingle on application
    cons: bad reaction which appears two days after use

    My skin has a huge retinol tolerance, I have been able to use much stronger retinol products and decided to switch to a 'lighter' product for maintenance and also because I trusted the Alpha H brand. Unfortunately I have a really bad reactio...

  17. good product


    Easy to apply but I don't see much of a difference in my skin when using this. I've nearly finished the bottle but I think I will try another retinol before coming back to this product
  18. Expensive for 0.5, but works great


    Serum works great - makes your skin feel super plump, soft, and healthy. However, I think it's a little pricey considering there are cheaper retinol alternatives that also work just as well.
  19. Big yes


    Switched to this product from the medik8 Retinol serum after searching for something a bit more affordable.
    Definitely needs to be used religiously for optimum results but this has really improved my dull looking skin.
  20. Excellent starter serum


    Loved this serum as the start of my anti aging process! Dewy but fast drying and excellent under moisteriser at night time.
  21. love it


    I was using the serum for my night routine and for the instant results I can see how smooth my skin in the next morning, the serum is very moisturizing. I love it.
  22. Dramatic difference


    I have only been using this for 5 nights in a row and i can see a huge difference in my skin. It is softer, my hyperpigmentation is less, my pores are noticeable smaller and clear. This is a really great retinol made even better with the aesthetic of the pottle and ease of the applicator and the smell. It gets a half star less because it makes my lips quite dry but nothing that more lip balm overn...

  23. Love Alpha-H


    I do love Alpha-H products so I have very high hopes for this product. I have been using this for about 7 weeks now and I don't see a massive change in my complexion. I believe however you have to wait around 12 weeks or so to see changes. So I am definitely in this for the long game. The product has a very subtle smell but nice. The texture is lovely. Goes on smooth and doesn't leave any residue....

  24. A+


    Really nice texture, lightweight, sits on the skin nicely. Am hoping it has good long term results.
  25. Great retinol for first time users


    This is the first retinol product I have ever used and so far so good. I am trying to slowly introduce my skin to retinol as I have very sensitive skin that reacts easily and also suffer from mild rosacea. I have been using this one or two times a week so far, while alternating using an AHA serum as well two nights a week with no irritation or reaction. My skin looks fresh and clear in the morning...

  26. Perfect for sensitive skin!


    I’m in my late 20s and have endeavoured to add retinol into my skincare regime. I have tried a few others, but this one is perfect. Great price, lovely texture and no irritation! My skin can react to anything harsh and this has been perfect. I use it every other night all down my neck and chest too and no reactions. Love it and will repurchase!
  27. Great!


    I have been using different brands of retinol for years and thought I would try Alpha-H - I was not disappointed! It's a lovely texture, very light weight. I did over use it a little bit in the beginning and it took some time to adjust how often I needed to use it on my skin. Would be a good retinol for someone who is new to using it.
  28. Perfect retinol for beginners


    Lovely serum texture, didn't irritate my skin at all which I was very happy with considering this is my first time using retinol. I started off by using this once per week and gradually worked up to using five days per week (I use Alpha-H liquid gold rose on the remaining two nights). I feel like my skin looks a little clearer and brighter, which is exactly what I was after.
  29. Great serum


    This is a lightweight serum and is great for sensitive skin. I use this every second night alternating with liquid gold.
  30. Noticeable improvement in skin very quickly


    I have tricky skin so had always been nervous about retinopathy. I bought this in the alpha h profile pack and let it sit in a drawer for 6+ months, to scared to use it. But since I have started (Every second or third night) I’ve noticed massive changes in my skin, mainly around my problem areas (nose and chin). So pleased, will be sticking with this!
  31. My go to


    I love all the alpha h serums, they are really light on the skin, and I’ve noticed amazing results with regular usage. I find this is also really nice in the PM every second or third day.
  32. Gentle Vitamin A


    I have used Retinol in the past and have had really bad reactions. After reading the reviews on this product, I decided to give it a go.
    It's very gentle and doesn't irritate my skin I also have perioral dermatitis and I've had no reactions to this product. I use it every other night
  33. Gentle retinol


    This retinol is non irritating, hydrating and gentle. It layers and spreads evenly on my skin and goes well under my night moisturizer or oil. I only use it once a week so I don’t upset my skins barrier as I use other actives throughout the week, so using it just once, I’ve had no irritation or negative affects. I’m not sure how effective it is, but I’m happy to continue using to see over time. On...

  34. Sensitive skin's this one's for you


    Finally! A retinol that can be used on sensitive skin. Love this retinol and have for years. I have sensitive skin and does not irritate my skin. It is a must in my collection
  35. A great starter to Vit A


    This product is so gentle on the skin, other Vitamin A products cause my skin to be irritated and flake. Perfect if you have sensitive skin or are new to retinol.
  36. Renewed Skin


    I got this as a gift with purchase and have since used this every second night as a part of my evening skin routine, It has helped calm down my skin with inflammation but also has helped with the texture in smoothness and given my face younger look. I will definitely be buying a full size bottle! Highly recommend
  37. Great serum for beginners


    I was looking to introduce a retinol into my skincare routine and this product has been the perfect introduction. The serum has no distinct smell, is lightweight and I have found it absorbs pretty quickly. No experience of skin tingling or irritation that can be associated with retinol. Decent sized bottle as well.
  38. Magic in a bottle


    I have been applying this every night before moisturizer for 3 months now and I just purchased my 2nd bottle. I was a bit hesitant to make the 1st purchase because I have never applied a serum to my skin before and there are so many on the market to choose from. After receiving an email from Adore beauty recommending this particular Retinol for first time Retinol users I decided to give it a go. I...

  39. The best beginner retinol


    I have tried a few different retinol products since turning 25 and have found this one the best one to start with so far. I found that anything less then 0.5% not worth even trying for the lack of effect it has, and anything greater would just irritate the skin. This one I have found is quite thick in texture, so difficult to use on it's own with just the recommended 2-3 drops, but I have easily b...

  40. Good product


    Good product. But I still prefer Skin Ceuticals’s Retinol
  41. Pretty happy


    I have only been using this for a couple of months so in my opinion not really long enough to see overall results but my skin tolerates this well, it doesn't sting and it's good value for money
  42. Vitamin A is a MUST


    Excellent for fine lines developing on the neck and chest. Skin has a nice even glow.
  43. Amazing


    It took about a week but I have noticed great improvement with my skin texture and clarity. I was worried as this was the first time using Vitamin A but now I wish I started sooner.
  44. Smooth


    My skin looks so much better in terms of the skin tone and texture after a few months of using this.
  45. Must Have in my Skincare Routine!

    Maddie J

    I have been using this product for a couple of months, in my evening routine. A little goes a long way :) Have noticed great improvements in skin texture and hydration.

    Will definitely be reordering this product!
  46. Good entry level


    Non irritating and rapidly absorbed. Very good for an early adopter of retinol. I find 3 drops is perfect for my whole face.
  47. Good


    Then after 10 days my skin started to show more smoothness and transparency. Then I realized it has been working.
  48. Good so far


    I haven’t used it for too long which is why I’m giving it 4 stars. I am only just starting to use retinol and I have had no issues with this product. Feels nice on the skin, had no redness or irritation or dryness. Look forward to keep using it.
  49. Nice retinol


    Nice retinol serum, I didn't experience any irritation and my skin looks great.
  50. A must


    This serum is just amazing. It helps to improve my scars and pigmentation.
  51. Great gentle starter retinol


    I have been using this Vitamin A for a few weeks now and have seen congestion cleared up as well as skin texture improve. Would recommend!
  52. Great product


    I have noticed a difference to the evenness of my skin and diminishing of pimple/spot scars. I use a lot of actives but had never tried retinol before so was apprehensive and wanted to try one that would work but wouldn't aggravate my sensitive skin. I did my research (recommended by Caroline Hirons) and am very happy with this product - would recommend.
  53. Very good for ageing problems


    A lovely and light serum that sinks in quickly. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles, pores and is good for acne and pimple prone skins. Good for stressed skin and any environmental damage on the skin.
  54. Quality Retinol


    Excellent for fine lines developing on the neck and chest. Use after exfoliating with Apha-h peppermint cream. Then moisturize with a sunscreen. Makeup goes on way smoother. Skin has a nice even glow.
  55. Great Retinol


    Love this retinol and have for years. I have sensitive skin and does not irritate my skin. It is a must in my collection

  57. Great


    This is a great intro to retinol especially for someone like me with sensitive skin!
  58. Yes Yes and Yes


    This serum is so amazing! I use it at night time and really have noticed a difference in my skin. I couldn't recommend this product more. It is pricey but it is worth it and it will last a long time.
  59. I use this every night and get great results!


    I have acne rosacea and this product doesnt trigger break outs. The vitamin A retinol calms my skin down. Love it!!
  60. Good starter retinol


    This is nice. Feels nice and gentle (I don't like to go too hard with retinol), dries down well. Great price. Apparently the formula is encapsulated so the dropper is fine.
  61. Great


    Excellent for fine lines developing on the neck and chest. Use after exfoliating with Apha-h peppermint cream. Then moisturize with a sunscreen. Makeup goes on way smoother. Skin has a nice even glow.

  63. Don’t get sucked in by the hype


    I freaked out over aging and bought this. I didn’t see much of a difference after using it consistently, but think I jumped the gun. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone that doesn’t REALLY need it.
  64. I use this after my dermal roller!


    I bought this as a serum to use after I use my lonvitalite dermal roller as it contains retinol to renew the skin. I use it in the evening and leave it over night.
    It feels and smells great, I have seen good results with this product and will continue to use it.

  65. Pretty good~!


    You can definitely tell that this is packed full of goodness and vitamins, it even smells like its vitamin rich and its super gentle and soft on the skin!
  66. My new best friend


    Using this since Christmas and alternating with Liquid Gold, my skin has never been better.
  67. Miracle in a bottle


    This product is absolutely fantastic. I pair mine with the Alpha H gentle exfoliator mostuiser & have noticed a huge difference to my pigmentation on my skin. I have acne scarring on my cheeks and this product has slowly but surely reduced it. Will be repurchasing
  68. Excellent product


    I have used the Alpha-H range for a while but this was my first time venturing into their serums. I have noticed a significant difference in my skin tone since using this product. Pores are less visible and my skin looks brighter and smoother overall. I'd recommend this product.
  69. Like it


    The Alpha H vitamins are great, you can feel the goodness in them and can smell the vitamins! That said, I have used similar brands that seem to be more concentrated or more mixed in together. Its hard to know which to use at which time or where on the face. But overall I really like these!
  70. Great


    This is refreshing, soaks in fast, feels amazing, and leaves your skin smooth and soft. You can notice the vitamin A
  71. Good Product


    fairly happy with this product haven't been using it long but have started to see a difference. My skin isn't as dry
  72. Good Vit A serum


    This is a good product for people who are new to using Vitamin A/retinols. It has a few oils in it, but is not too heavy for people with normal or combo skin types. Absorbs easily and non-irritating.
  73. Lightweight, effective and excellent ethical brand


    I wanted to try vitamin A after reading and speaking to people about the benefits for skin using topical retinols. I've been using this product roughly 3 times a week at night after cleansing. I think my skin is looking quite good, and it seems to be quite taut and clear so I think I will continue with this product and other Alpha-H products because I love a brand that is locally made, cruelty fre...

    I love this retinoids serum.
    I've been using this for over 12 months, working my usage up gently over that time.
    I can now use this 4 nights a week. (I'm aiming for 7 eventually)
    My skin is brighter, clearer with less congestion. I'm thrilled with my skin at the moment.
    The reason I like this over the other 2 brands of retinol I've tried is the texture. It's a runny milky s...

  75. Excellant


    Have recently purchased the Alpha-H Vitamin A serum. This product is well presented. The opaque bottle and dropper protects it from any contamination or environment. Just a few drops and gently press on to skin. It is quickly absorbed. I then follow it up with the Alpha-H 24 hour moisturizer. My skin is looking more subtle and smooth . As recommended use an SPF during the day.
  76. Reduce acne scarring


    Was recommended by Alpha-H specialist to up the anti in my fight to reduce acne scarring. And after 1 week of use, I can see huge differences.
    Very easy dropper application. Feel sticky straight after application. Wait aprox 30 secs for it to completely dry before placing on your night cream.
