Shop Vitamin A/Retinol

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and an anti-aging champion with a reputation for effectiveness that has been well earned. It is an antioxidant that is readily absorbed when applied to the skin, but it is also so much more.

The benefits of Vitamin A/retinol for skin

Retinol’s anti-aging abilities stem from its ability to stimulate collagen production. The production of collagen is essential for combatting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

As we age, cell turnover slows. Vitamin A causes the skin to increase the rate at which new skin cells are made so that old, dull skin is replaced at a quicker rate.

Cosmeceutical grade retinol/vitamin A can help:

  • exfoliate the dull skin
  • Smooth wrinkles and slows aging
  • fight acne
  • fade acne scar and even skin for a radiant glow

Vitamin A is added to many cosmetic products, including moisturisers, sunscreens, vitamin-infused oils, and anti-aging creams. It can also be found as a serum and as an oil, which gives you multiple options for achieving a glowing complexion free of skin concerns like acne and large pores.


Please note: for those who are creating their own professional grade skincare routine at home, it is best to avoid layering multiple forms of retinols. This is because while your skin may be able to handle a strong retinol/Vitamin A serum, if you're also using an AHA or retinol moisturiser you may run the risk of sensitising your skin.


Always pair retinol products with a highly effective sunscreen.

Results without irritation

Although this is described as an intermediate strength retinol product, I found it gentle enough to use on my non-retinized, rosacea skin. Follow the instructions and introduce gradually, buffering with a rich moisturiser or oil over the top. The product is also described as a serum but is actually a light cream texture, easily spreadable with no oiliness. I find 1.5 pumps enough for each application so the tube is long lasting.

After using for a couple of months the texture of my skin is noticeably smoother and redness reduced. Very happy.

Amazing and non irritating

I have dry and sensitive skin.

I’m starting to get a few fine lines so wanted a good retinol eye cream.

I was disappointed by the size, but then realised you only swipe on a drop per eye.

Firstly, I get eczema and hay fever so am used to dry and runny eyes and this didn’t give me any sort of flare up at all.

Whilst I wouldn’t use it if I had a full on break out, products do tend to break me out if they have retinol etc and this didn’t.

It’s very softening, and a decent price for what you get. Given some eye serums cost over $100 for retinol, I will continue to buy this.
