Anti-ageing retinol products that will change your skin

Ramped-up retinols you need in your skincare regime

retinol skincare

At over 80 years old, retinol isn’t the newest ingredient in our anti-ageing arsenal, but it is still one of the best, which is why we've handpicked ten our favourite retinol products to save your skin.

For those of you who aren't entirely sure what retinol actually does, the vitamin A derivative has been proven to boost collagen, brighten skin and tighten pores (making it as brilliant for acne and sun damage as it is on wrinkles) and, thanks to recent developments, retinol is now better than ever before.

Partnered with innovative ingredients that boost efficacy and prevent inflammation, retinol is the key ingredient in all the hottest new anti-ageing products.

These retinols are tougher than ever on wrinkles, but still reassuringly skin-friendly, meaning you can anti-age and look after your skin, all at the same time.

So, how fast can we get our hands on them?

Philosophy Miracle Worker Anti Ageing Eye Cream, £35

Just a few years ago, applying a retinol cream anywhere near our eyes would have been unthinkable, but thankfully, Philosophy’s eye cream is as gentle as it is effective. Its proprietary retinoid (a retinol relative that’s kinder on skin) works in tandem with brightening vitamin C and strengthening peptides for a crinkle-busting, shadow-banishing formula that makes perfect sense.

La Roche-Posay Redermic R, £29.50

This cream contains 0.3% retinol which makes it ideal for first time users. A simple, fragrance-free formula means it's great for sensitive skin, with no preservatives or harmful parabens. In place of the usual sore flare-ups that come with a retinol treatment, this created a smooth, clear base where lines appeared softened. Over time, this promises to reduce wrinkles and make tone look brighter, while the gentle formula has proven not to aggravate the skin.

Skinceuticals Retinol 0.3 Night Cream, £55

Skinceuticals is a real authority on expert-strength skincare. Hence, 0.3 % of retinol in a tube may not sound like a lot, but it’s one of the purest, most tolerable levels of retinol you can get without a prescription (cosmetic levels start around 0.3%, and graduate upwards to 2% strength). Use this night cream on its own once or twice a week to stimulate cell regeneration, unclog pores and blur fine lines, upgrading to nightly use if your skin responds well. After a few weeks skin should be plumper and smoother, so protect it with a good daily SPF.

This night serum combines retinol with moisturising cactus flower, barrier-boosting fatty acids and repairing Persian silk tree extract for a powerful skin plumper that also brightens and detoxifies whilst you sleep. Add to that a rich, silky texture that’s moisturising enough to be worn alone and the result is a glow-boosting formula.

Medik8 r-Retinoate Youth Activating Cream, £108

In order for your skin to process this wonder ingredient, it has to convert it from a retinol to a retinal and back to a retinoic acid. This cream only has to convert once on the skin, meaning far quicker results. Feel free to use morning and night (unlike other retinols) as it doesn't make your skin sun-sensitive.
