How do I use the Retinol Facial Serum? Retinol should be gradually introduced into your regime to build up tolerance, starting with once or twice a week and building up to more frequent use. In the evening, prior to moisturising, apply one pump of product onto dry skin, avoiding the delicate area directly under the eyes. Massage into the skin and allow approximately 30 minutes for full absorption. Follow with a barrier-protecting cream, such as our Ceramide Face Cream.

Warnings: This product contains ingredients that can increase your skin’s risk of sunburn and UV exposure. Always apply an SPF the following morning after using this product. During initial use, you may experience skin peeling or shedding. If your skin feels uncomfortable, consider reducing or discontinuing use.

An anti-ageing powerhouse, this Retinoid works to renew, firm, brighten and improve skin texture while minimising the signs of ageing. This low-irritation grade will deliver the same expert benefits with a gentler touch! 

Squalane 🌼

Natural Squalane is a vegan-friendly alternative to Squalene, made from Olive Oil. It has incredible moisturising abilities whilst being fast absorbing. Plus, it works well for all skin types.

Bisabolol 🌳

Originating from the Candeia Tree but also found in Chamomile, Bisabolol is naturally soothing and has traditionally been used to calm dehydrated and stressed-out skin.

Love this product!

Q+A's Retinol Facial Serum makes my skin look and feel radiant. Unlike some other retinol serums I have tried, it never irritates my skin. Great value!!

Another Great product from Q +A!

I am a massive fan of Q +A products and find them to be gentle and effective. I love the mighty moisture bundle which is great for my mature and slightly dry skin. I had always been a bit wary of retinol as my skin can be sensitive but thought I would give this serum a go. I have incorporated this into my regime starting at once a week and am now using twice a week. I have had no adverse reaction and my skin feels much smoother, plumper and with a bit more glow. So far I am really pleased with the results.

A great product with great results!

I've been using this serum for the past two months and I'm obsessed with the results. I use it every other day and I have really started to notice the benefits. It leaves my skin feeling soft and glowy, and doesn't irritate my skin at all. I have dry skin and it works well for my skin type!

Great Product

I previously have been using "The Ordinary" for Retinol, but started transitioning to Q&A recently and was a bit worried about starting to use the Retinol serum. However, it is great. Easy to use, no bad reactions at all (and I have sensitive skin) and so far I definitely can see that my skin has maintained what I'd expect using a Retinol. As I love all the products so much, I am officially transitioned to a full Q&A product customer.

Great for dry skin

I've been cautious about using retinols before as I have dry skin. I've been really impressed with this product and it hasn't dried my skin out at all. My skin definitely seems smoother. I'm definitely going to keep using it to see it's long term impact.
