Supercharge your skincare with Retinol

If there was a fountain of youth this would be it. Retinol offers a plethora of skincare benefits from anti-aging and brightening to eliminating blackheads and pimples. The benefits of Retinol are so wide ranging that there isn’t a skincare type who shouldn’t be using it. Yes, we’re even looking at you, sensitive skin!

When should I use it?

Our gentle Retinol formulation makes it perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin. As the ultimate multi-tasking skincare ingredient, Retinol is suitable for younger, acne prone skin and mature skin. Retinol is safe to use during the day just make sure you protect your skin with a good SPF.

Where should I use it?

Everywhere!

Not only can Retinol be applied close to the eyes – you should apply it here, as this is where we see the first signs of aging. Retinol also works wonders at reducing dark circles and discolouration under the eyes.

Can I use it with my other skincare products?

The Skin Republic Retinol formulation is gentle enough to use with your current skincare regime. To enhance the function of Retinol, pair with our Brightening Vitamin C Face Mask. Vitamin C, an antioxidant that defends the skin against environmental stressors, helps to stabilize Retinol and extend its effectiveness.
