A derivative of vitamin A, retinol helps to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production to keep skin looking youthful, working at a cellular level to promote renewal and repair processes so that newer cells reach the surface quicker. As we age, the rate at which our skin renews itself slows down (sob) so retinol can be a great way of kick-starting cells back into action.
Providing the highest quality ingredients formulated by a crack team of scientists and experts, THE INKEY LIST’s answer to retinol is sublime in its simplicity, uniting 1% stable retinol and 0.5% granactive retinoid (slightly stronger than retinol) with squalane for hydration and soothing. The slow-release formula minimises irritation while providing effective active delivery, working hard to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone tackle blemishes and improve skin clarity, leaving your complexion looking brighter, smoother and miles more youthful.
I have dark spots and scars that has been there for years that are now fading. Retinol can be a bit scary to try but this one from The Inkey List is not harsh to skin and contains 1% which is friendly to beginners. I apply niacinamide after to help out fading scars faster. Plus, it's not the expensive but really delivers compared to other brands. Happy that this store sells this because it's hard to order in Sephora.
Im a newbie to retinol and im slowly building tolerance so in short ihaven’t tried this for long enough to see any of its claims but this did not break me out which is my number one consideration and i like that it smells a little like oatmeal.
This is the first time I've tried retinol. I have sensitive skin (I have eczema) but so far, I had no irritation or dryness with this product. I usually mix it with moisturizer. I have been using it for 3 weeks (1x/week) so it's too early to judge if it's effective. I find the packaging to be small but then again a lot of retinol products are more expensive and at a smaller size so I guess the price for this is already ok. I just noticed there's this sesame oil-like smell. I prefer a no fragrance product but the smell is tolerable and after awhile, I don't notice it anymore.
So happy they carry this brand. I have around 16 concealers and this is the best! <3 It covers pimple marks and hyperpigmentation well. doesnt make the skin crack nor does it feel cakey even after a long day.
I finally found the concealer that matches my skintone and blends easily. A little goes a long way, hopefully makeup store manila can have a wide range of NARS foundation as well to match with the concealers. Will definately repurchase this again.
I love the product. It really leaves a dewy glam finish. I use it over my foundation or primer.
prod delivered as promised. sheen wherever you want it, forehead, cheeks, bridge of nose & buildable too! would buy it again.
Perfect for my lips. Thank u
I love how the smells doesn’t fade easily! It’s also just enough for me. Not too strong.
Very effective and wallet friendly! Inkey list is actually one of my recent favorite skincare brand.
Ordered this one along with the James Charles x Morphe Palette and his fewer set of brushes in a tubby case. Everything were neatly and safely packaged! None of the brushed had dents or anything. Many thanks!
The palette was undamaged as expected. Thank you for a super neat and safe packaging for these makeup!
I appreciate how each of the brushes were neatly packed in plastic inside the tubby case. As expected, none were damaged. Thank you again!
Delivery was very quick and seamless.
Good sample size for people who want to test the product without the big commitment. Both the cleanser and the moisturizer smell great and feel good on the skin. Skin feels soft and supple and not greasy after application.
The colors are pigmented and what I like most is that it’s also long lasting!
I love the colors and it’s also long lasting!
