Retinol Booster

Retinol newbie? This booster will start you on your journey to smoother skin, lock in moisture and get your skin used to the power of retinol. The longer you use it, the more you will see the results. It's your skin, supercharged.

Retinol is the one most effective skincare ingredient that’s out there. Want to know more? Here is everything you need to know.

Because retinol is a very active ingredient, it can take time for the skin to get used to it. Skinsmiths retinol products are boosters so they are flexible for everyone. Its easier to begin using retinol and can be incorporated into any routine. They can be mixed into a moisturiser for a lower dose or used on their own (or layered over other skincare steps) for the full strength. ​

Our best tip when starting with retinol for the first time is to listen to your skin while it gets used to using retinol, your skin will love you for it.

  1. Start with one or two drops of Retinol Booster into moisturiser a few times per week. Make sure to use daily sun protection.​
  2. ​If your skin is happy, increase the frequency to every day. Then you can increase the dose until you are using it undiluted.
  3. Level up - When you get through the Retinol Booster, your skin should be happy with retinol. Then you can move to the Retinol Booster Plus for extra skin-boosting if you would like.
