Finally, a retinol for sensitive skin

07 Mar 2024
Ready to try retinol but not quite sure what to expect? Prone to sensitivity and worried your skin will suffer?
Even we know that sometimes the horror can outweigh the hype when it comes to retinol reviews. We hear you, and we're here to help!

Retinol is a powerful topical ingredient that works to promote skin cell regeneration; bringing fresher, firmer and smoother cells to the surface.
It's an incredible ingredient for targeting skin troubles such as breakouts, blemishes and bumps, helping you achieve a softer, clearer complexion in time.

So, let's hear it: what are the downsides?
It's no secret that retinol has secured a particularly bad rap for causing some nasty skin side effects like dryness, peeling and irritation.
Retinol is a particularly powerful ingredient; with most formulas encouraging application once or twice a week in order to build skin tolerance, before adding it into your more regular routine.
This is because by working to help regenerate skin cells, retinol can also encourage and speed up skin exfoliation; a process of which shouldn't always be rushed.

When using active ingredients like retinol in your routine, it's especially important you don't neglect your skin barrier, and this is where we come in.
Introducing INNISFREE's Retinol Cica Repair Ampoule: a functional yet skin-friendly retinol that's both non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic.

To maximise absorption whilst cushioning the skin, this low-irritant formula features liposome technology; pairing high-purity retinol with Centella, ceramide and soybean-hyaluronic acid.
With a watery consistency and refreshing finish, this all-in-one ampoule helps address skin concerns from breakouts, texture and inflammation, to enlarged pores and oil-moisture imbalance.
