Overview

Help prevent the signs of ageing with Skinstitut Retinol, a high-intensity serum used to smooth skin and promote cell renewal. Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is a powerful nutrient which helps to increase collagen and elastin production, leaving skin looking firmer, clearer and with a more even skin tone.

Skinstitut Retinol is suitable for those with mature, ageing, sun-damaged, breakout-prone and pigmented skin, who want to brighten and smooth their complexion.

The gel formulation should be applied every other evening onto clean and dry skin and can be used alongside Skinstitut Vitamin C to increase the benefits. If you’ve never used retinol before, start slowly to minimise irritation: use twice a week at first, then slowly build up to alternate nights.

- High potency retinol gel serum

- Suitable for ageing, breakout-prone and damaged skin

- To be applied in the evening

- 30ml

Sensational Product - 13-11-2017 by

My daughter had a severe outbreak of acne which was not only unsightly but very painful. I searched online and came across a review for this product. As the review said, it did take a couple of weeks of regular use to produce a fantastic result! But wow - what a difference. My daughter has recommended this product to her friends.

Say goodbye to damaged skin and hello to flawless skin - 13-11-2017 by

I have always struggled with acne scars and acne pigmentation. I have brown skin and my scars are almost black. I have forever been looking for a skin care routine that will firstly stop breakouts and secondly help with the pigmentation and Skinstitut has been my saviour. I alternate this with the Even Blend Serum and they are a match made in heaven. I also blend with the vitamin c powder for a more potent mix. The retinol serum has helped my skin repair, improving the texture of my skin and giving me that natural glow. LOVE IT! BUY IT NOW!

Love it - 05-11-2017 by

I use this at night and it Makes my skin feel amazing the next day!
i have used this for years now and love it, definitely recommend!

LIFE CHANGING for only $30! - 27-09-2017 by

If I had to go to a desert island and could only take one product this would be it. Clears up congestion, cleans out pores, gets rid of any pimples I feel like are starting to come through, fades acne scarring.. I could go on. Do yourself a favour and try this, changed my skin completely.

Awesome product - 12-09-2017 by

I use this for my acne and freckles and works a treat an going to purchase the vitamin c soon to increase rear the potency i find I need more than a pea size for it to feel comfortable on my face I use about 3 pea size amounts and use it every second night and in summer I'll use every night to keep my freckles at bay

Best Retinol product without a prescription - 07-09-2017 by

I don't need to say much as thr reviews speak for themselves. Retinol was mostly targeted at women with acne as it does an amazing job of clearing the skin up but then it was discovered that it was also an amazing product for older skin to help wrinkles and fine lines. I have used so many different Retinol products in my in life due to hormonal acne I developed in my early 20's I have extreamly sensitive skin and most of the products would burn my skin but they did an an amazing job of helping my skin before I went on medication to clear my skin up which made it a whole lot more sensitive. So after being off the medication for a year I went back in search of a great Retinol and I tried so many, either they would burn my skin really badly or they wouldn't do anything at all. When I tried this my face tingled which is normal and went slightly pink but it didn't burn or hurt, the next day my skin was looking better already. I use this 3 times a week and it has done wonders for my skin, my mother and sister now use it and have seen a massive change in their skin. I always purchase this from Adore as it's always the cheapest website for it and it's my one stop shop for all my make up and skin products. Also they have the best customer service team if you ever have any issues.

Essential product - 21-08-2017 by

Love that skinstitute products are just as good as some of the high end products but a fraction on the price,

I alternate between this and Rejuvenate 15 in the evenings and it's really helped prevent aging and even out my skin tone. I love it. I mix it with vitamin c and I've noticed a huge difference, my skin is firm, clear and bright.

It works! - 17-08-2017 by

This is great. Don't expect a hydrating serum as it's a bit thick and leaves a slightly tacky finish. But it's so good at clearing my skin when I've got pimples and spots. It brightens too. I use every third night after cleansing and under moisturiser. You seriously only need a pea sized amount. It lasts ages.

Great product but wish it was bigger - 27-07-2017 by

I have just started using retinol in my skin care regime as I get regular Botox and I want to maintain my skin. I've experienced no redness or flaking. I do find it a bit hard to spread and end up using a bit more. I would be happier to pay for a bigger bottle and a pump style would be preferable. I've noticed my skin is brighter and what pimples I do have (hormonal spots) are reduced in size significantly.

Great value and works well - 07-07-2017 by

I really like this product - I've been using it for a year or so. I use it every second night, after a BHA exfoliator which I use every night. The combination has definitely improved the acne I had, and my skin is also plumper and younger looking. Love!

Training Wheels for Retinol - 20-06-2017 by

I purchased this product because I had read so much about retinol and how beneficial it is in combating the signs of aging. I started using anti-aging products in my early twenties, and with my thirtieth birthday looming (and not a wrinkle in sight) I'm doubling down on my anti-aging regime. Unfortunately, my bank account never got the memo. So when I discovered a non-drug store retinol that wasn't hundreds of dollars I was very keen to give it a go. I was surprised that the consistency is as thick as it is and how gentle it is on my skin. While the concentration of active ingredients may be lower than the pricier alternatives, it does a good job. It does exactly what it promises. I'm still likely to upgrade to a more concentrated product when I can afford the investment, but this is definitely a great first foray into the world of retinol.

New skin - 30-05-2017 by

I've been using Aspect products for years but have been looking for a cheaper alternative. After using Skinstitut retinal mixed with vitamin C powder every night for two weeks, my skin is clearer and softer than ever

Amazing - 22-05-2017 by

This product is great. I use every 3 days at night or when my skin has dried out. Always wake up with soft, smooth skin when I use this.

Finally a product that works on my skin! - 19-03-2017 by

My beauty therapist recommended trying this for my skin concerns after coming off the contraceptive pill. My skin was oily and breaking out constantly. I preferred organic skin care, however it just wasn't clearing my skin up so I finally gave this a go and I wish I did earlier! I use this product with the gentle cleanser and it cleared my skin up within a week! You only need to use a small amount on your face (it can be drying) so it lasts for a long time. I absolutely love Skinstitut products and they have become a huge part of my skin care routine!

Great product - 13-02-2017 by

I love the look and feel of my skin after wearing this product to bed (with Skinstitut Moisture Defence of course!) The smell if fine and goes on easily. My skin is plump and rejuvenated the next morning.

you should need a prescription for this quality - 29-01-2017 by

The Retinol by Skinstitut is such high quality a teeny bit goes a long way. I mix the retinol cream with the vitamin c powder and I have seen a great improvement in the smoothness and brightness of my skin.

Skintitut rules yet again! - 20-11-2016 by

Great product paired with the Skinstitut powder and the even blend cream. It's amazing.
Skintitut has the best products!
I recommended these products to 3 other friends who now shop on adore beauty and love skintitut products. I get comments on my skin all the time and these are gray products. Get into them!

Great Product - 15-11-2016 by

I have used expensive Retinol products and this is totally comparable but with a much less damaging price tag.

I love the product and a little goes a long way, I only use this once or twice a week because like with all retinol if you use it every day your skin get a little too plastic looking but it is perfect the night before a big event for dispersing fine lines. Of course the more us use it it deeper it works but I still wouldn't go over board Would highly recommend this and the whole Skinstitut line.

Value for money - 25-10-2016 by

This is a very product for it's price. Works well on acne scars.

wow - 13-10-2016 by

I have only used this once so far, and it's instant! My skin is glowing and I mixed a bit of Vitamin C powder in it and even my hands look smoother and brighter. It definitely is amazing so far. I can't wait to see long term results!

Great product, worth the money - 16-08-2016 by

This product really changed my skin. I didn't really have high hopes when I purchased this product because I have never heard of this brand before. But at that time I desperately needed a serum to help address my age spots and pigmentation. Even though this is not a miracle product, and doesn't give you perfect, supple, clear baby skin, it has help lighten up the pigmentation and make my skin soft and radiant. I get a lot of complements about my skin and even my family noticed the difference.

The only downside about this is that the package is not that great. opening it is a pain and sometimes too much product comes out. If you have sensitive skin, you have to be careful not to use too much as it can cause redness and skin sensitivity. I make this mistake the first few times I use the product and my skin was red and irritated. A small amount is all you need to see nice skin.

Great product - 22-07-2016 by

I used the retinol serum last night for the first time and woke up this morning to the softest, smoothest skin.
This product really does work and it's very affordable.
I have used other products that were pretty expensive and did not get the results this little beauty gave me.
I will definately purchase again.

Does the trick - 17-07-2016 by

Great serum treatment. minimises pores and my skin glows. I find if I spend too much on a serum I use it too sparingly. This serum gives results; not just because it's a great product, but because it's price point means I can use it liberally.

Does what it says - 04-06-2016 by

I have noticed dark patches of pigmentation on my bottom due to old scars that I had picked or neglected to take care of properly, I have been using this for 2 days and yes thats not a long time but I can already see a reduced pigmentation problem its lightened my skin dramatically and thats in 2 days! I have combined it with Even Blend Serum and the Vit C powder for added potency and they're working a charm

Ah-mazing - 19-12-2015 by

I have been using this product for 6 days in my new Skinstitut skincare routine and my scars, pigmentation + ACNE are already disappearing and on the mend. I love the smell of this product when used at night before bed... Rentoil is a must!

Love it! - 04-12-2015 by

5 star service and quick delivery. So excited to use the product!! Will write my review soon! Thanks adore beauty!

Love this product! - 18-08-2015 by

starter to use retinol after i had a severe break out on my forehead, within two weeks it had completely cleared my skin and made it look so smooth and clean!
definitely would recommend to a friend, and would buy this product again! :-)

Decent alternative to Cosmedix Serum 16! - 23-01-2015 by

I was looking for a cheaper alternative to Cosmedix as all the Cosmedix range has become too expensive. This is a gentle, effective Retinol that doesn't cause any adverse reactions. I mix it with my Vitamin C powder at night and am loving the results!

Brilliant! - 09-11-2014 by

When I was a teenager I had decent skin. I suffered the odd spot here and there but I never suffered from terrible breakouts or uneven skin. Cue adulthood and everything changed. Once I turned 24 my skin broke out terribly and ever since I've had break-outs galore and poor looking skin in general. Nothing I've used since has ever made a tangible or lasting difference.

Now, THIS STUFF.

I started using this a few weeks ago on a nightly basis and since starting, I've had one spot around that time of the month. That's it. One spot in four weeks? I haven't had such clear skin for two years probably.

I definitely recommend trying this product. It's cheap, it lasts and it works wonders. I'm kicking myself for not discovering it sooner.

good value - 14-09-2014 by

This product does just what you want it to without the hefty price tag that intricate packaging adds to skin care. The pump is easily manipulated for lots or little. I mix it with the vit C powder and get good results.

Results at a fraction of price you'd usually pay - 09-08-2014 by

Love Skinstitut Retinol! Feel I am getting all the benefits for half the price of similar brands I've tried before.

Skinstitut's Retinol gives me results without the hefty price tag, so I highly recommend.

This serum is amazing. - 26-07-2014 by

I love using Skinstitut Retinol - it is a gentle yet highly effective serum. It glides on so smoothly and absorbs quickly. I'm in my mid 40s and have noticed a real improvement in my skin's appearance since adding it to my night-time routine. Highly recommended.

Excellent - 01-07-2014 by

The product smells amazing. Because it's a serum you only need a tiny bit to cover the whole face and I love using it with their other products, like the Gentle Cleanser and the Glycolic 14% scrub.

Does the job without the high price tag - 30-06-2014 by

This product has a lovely texture and I notice the difference in my skin the next morning. It's effective yet gentle that I have not experienced any irritation or dryness that some retinol products can give. I am even able to use this every night without irritation. My only criticism is that although it smells nice it's got a very strong scent where I prefer to have little or no fragrance.

Lovely and affordable product - 12-05-2013 by

I love the smell of Skinstitut retinol and it's ease of application. You only need one pump to cover the whole face and you don't need to wait long for the product to melt into the skin. Have already noticed my skin becoming softer and brighter. This is a great product!

Made Noticeable Difference - 07-02-2013 by

This product is great, after just 1 or 2 applications I really felt and sore a difference in the appearance of my skin. You only need the smallest amount. I will look to buying their other products.
