Kiehl’s Retinol Skin Renewing Daily Micro Dose Serum

Retinol is regarded by dermatologists as the holy grail of skincare ingredients for its unique and clinically proven ability to visibly improve wrinkles and other key signs of aging by increasing surface skin renewal and restoring skin density and firmness. However, because of its potency, products containing retinol can also cause a variety of uncomfortable side effects, including dryness, visible redness, and peeling especially in the early stages of use. In most cases, retinol products need to be introduced into skincare routines gradually or at varying strengths to first build up the skin’s tolerance to the ingredient before seeing transformative benefits. Without expert guidance, this process can be confusing, inconvenient, and frustrating for the consumer.

summer beauty

To that end, Kiehl’s is proud to introduce Retinol Skin Renewing Daily Micro Dose Serum ; a breakthrough approach to retinol, formulated in a precise daily dosage that delivers visible anti ageing benefits, while minimizing the uncomfortable side effects associated with traditional retinol formulas even within the first two weeks of use. This is one of the hottest new launches of summer and we’re looking forward to trialling it this month! Find out more and purchase at: priced at £62.00
