Love the product hate the packaging

Very nice product, it absorbs very nicely. I have not finished it yet to see the results. I have a huge problem with the packaging though as it gets stacked to the tubule walls and you have to cut the tubule with a pair of scissors (which technique may be harmful for the retinol to go bad) to find out that there is a lot of product at the walls. Please change your packaging to all you products. May you can us dispensers or applicataires . 3 stars due to the packaging (the serum is definitely 4 to 4,5 stars).

Good product, weird packaging.

I liked the retinol serum itself, I really saw a difference in the texture of my skin. It also helped keep my breakouts at bay! However, it wasn't really working to fade my acne scars, which is my main reason for using a retinoid in the first place. The packaging also makes this product very difficult to use; the product itself is runny, and it comes out of the container super fast, so I end up using way too much product at one time. I think it should come in a pump or something, kind of like their Vitamin C with EGF. It also smells weird at first, but I got over it.

Great retinol

I think it's a perfect product for those who want to start using retinol. It is very lightweight and, at least on my skin it did not cause any issue. I think the best thing is its formula as it is not oily like most retinols I've used. It has really helped me with the bumps on my skin.

My favorite!

Really great gentle retinol serum. My skin can be a little sensitive, but I don't experience any irritation with this. I feel like it really helps even out my skin tone and texture and even helps a little with breakouts. I will always re-purchase this one.

Yellow color normal?

Same as another review below. Just bought this and the color of the serum is bright yellow - is this safe to use?

The INKEY List CA

Hi Stef,

Thank you for leaving us this feedback. Some of our products are prone to colour change due the nature of the natural materials used in the formulation which are prone to oxidation - we can confirm that this does not negate the efficacy, nor the safety of the product.

We'd say just make sure the product has not been open for longer than 6 months as this would increase the oxidation.

However, if you still feel there could be problem with your product please could you send us some pictures of the texture and the batch code of the product to ask@theinkeylist.co.uk? We will look into this further for you!

Best wishes,
The INKEY list

Brighter

I only use Retinol a little bit, but I have definitely seen an improvement in my skin. My skin texture is more even, and brighter.
