I heard about this on the podcast and I was so excited for a retinol I could actually specifically use for my eyes but was also nervous, as my eyes are super sensitive and react to almost everything - but this product is amazing and even exceeded my expectations!! You only need the tiniest drop so the 7ml is going to last me ages, I love how it goes on/the texture and I can definitely already notice a difference in my under-eye area after only a few weeks. I've had no reaction whatsoever and will definitely be sticking with this as a staple in my routine. So excited to have a retinol just for my eyes.
My skin starts to peel mildly after about 3-4 days of application. And after that my face will start to glow and look more radiant. I use it every 2 weeks. In between these days I would apply Skinstitut Even Blend. Both products. Work perfectly well together to reduce my laugh lines!
Great intro to retinol. Best one I’ve used so far. It goes on light and absorbs straight away. Only tingles for about 10 seconds. I layer a moisturiser over this and in the morning, my skin is so smooth, glowing and clear. Going to try refine next which is the next level up in this range now I’ve been using this for about a year. A bottle lasts ages so a good investment.
I have just got into retinol products this year to help combat my acne. I have loved this skinstitut product, it is a soothing product and leaves my skin feeling soft, light and i am noticing my skin becoming clearer.
Everyone should begin to use retinol products as young as possible. I'm 22 and I have read numerous recommendations and finally choose it as my 1st retinol. So happy to see it works quickly on my skin in 3 days. My skin texture is so smooth!
And it has really perfect ingredients like Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, nice smell.
I’ve started using retinol earlier this year. Now it’s become my favourite anti-aging ingredient. I’ve tried few brands of retinol serum. This one is the best so far. Visible improvements of my skin texture and condition. Love it!
After listening to the Adore Beauty podcast episode 2, I jumped on the Vitamin A (aka retinol) bandwagon and have not looked back since! This product has been a fantastic introduction of retinol into my beauty regime, the instructions are clear and easy and the results have been noticeable - even by friends and colleagues are commenting. Once I finish this one I'll move to the next level. I would definitely suggest this to anyone who is new to the retinol game and wants to feel that amazing retinol glow!
Have been using everything in this pack for a couple of weeks and I’m loving it so far, can’t wait to start seeing some big results. After every use, my skin feels amazing, each of products has a light fragrance which is nice and feels great when putting them on and absorb pretty quickly, without leaving any oily or sticky feeling. I found out about this pack from the podcast - thanks for the recommendation ladies!
I’ve been using this product for about a month, day and night, only using such a small amount each time and I’m noticing a difference already in my fine lines under my eyes. Feels very luscious and is like a combination of a serum and light moisturiser. It’s a little on the pricey side but so far so good!
I received this as a sample & tried it last night, I was blown away by the result, my skin looked so fresh & glowing & felt so soft. Tonight I looked up the product & was disappointed to find out it's $73! I'm going to put it in my wish list & keep using the sample before I decide if it's worth spending that much money on one product.
I absolutely love this serum, I currently need to replace it!! I am 25, and it has been fantastic for both my oily, acne-prone skin, but also those fine lines and pigmentation that are starting to appear for me. Love using it at night, my skin always feels amazing in the morning after using. Skin is that bit tighter, smoother, more supple and even toned. Product has a slight smell to it, however from my own knowledge I think retinol can be a bit on the smelly side and this isn't unpleasant by any means. For what I paid for it and what it says it does, I am very happy and it definitely stood up to my expectations! Best serum I have found so far for my combo/oily/break out prone skin.
Ladies and Gents, do not waste your money on this product. Looks fantastic however that is were it stops. Recommended use morning and night which retinol products usually don't recommend in the initial stages meaning their "ain't" the quantity of active ingredients that should be in the product. I spent a little bit more than I usually would expecting a "cracker" product and received a "fizzer". If you are looking for a retinol with vitamins combine Skinstitute's retinol with their vitamin C. You will pay less and get an outstanding result. I wish I could have returned this product, however, sadly I am out of my "cooling off" period.
Just received this pack. Super in love with the packaging. So cute.
Tonight I’ve put on the B5 and retinol (new to retinol). And I have to say my moisturiser is quite thick but went on much smoother than normal. My face feels great so far and I loved how my skin absorbed the product. A little went a long way.
Keen to see how this pans out. First impressions are good!!
I received a deluxe sample of this mask and found it to leave my skin plumped, hydrated and glowy! I love how fast acting it is and I adore the luxe scent. I have dehydrated skin that’s been quite dull lately and was super happy with the results!
