A strong 1% retinol to target the signs of aging, enlarged pores and uneven texture. It is a good upgrade from a lower strength retinoid for skin that has built up tolerance to this ingredient.

How to use
Each evening, apply a pea-sized amount on to clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area. If you haven't used a retinol-based product before, you need to introduce this slowly to allow your skin to acclimatise. Start by applying 1-2x week for the first couple of weeks, gradually building up to nightly over the course of 4-6 weeks. This should minimise any irritation or peeling which can happen with retinol whilst the skin adjusts.

Licorice, oat extract and other soothing ingredients to help calm redness. Improves skin tone and texture. Fades brown spots. Softens fine lines and wrinkles.
