With the same unmistakable skinSense scent that we’ve come to know and love – new Anti-Ageing Retinol Serum is self-confessed skincare geek Abi cleeve’s latest launch.

This month skinSense new Retinol Serum will be £28 with free P&P (Usual price £39).
If you’re not using Retinol as part of your skincare routine, then it’s time you started.
Retinol is pure vitamin A and is the darling of anti-ageing ingredients. It’s said that no other is more effective at tackling the signs of ageing including sun damage, enlarged pores, fine lines/wrinkles and general appearance.
Award-winning skinSense claim its concentrated serum is formulated with a “highly active, double encapsulation of pure Retinol”. Now, here’s the interesting bit – In simple terms, when Retinol is encapsulated, its ability to get where we need it is supercharged. Effectively housed in a cyclosystem complex which offers ingredient protection far superior to other encapsulation processes. This allows the Retinol to be delivered beneath the surface of the skin targeting skin cells for that all-important cell renewal.
Retinol in its regular form can become unstable when exposed to UV or general pollutants in the air, impairing its effectiveness.
Encapsulation shields the retinol and protects efficacy for improved results. Couple all that with ground-breaking Lamellar technology which forms an invisible film around the active ingredients and locks in the anti-ageing benefits. Thus ensuring the Retinol remains in the skin throughout the day.
If you’re seeing the first signs of ageing, then it’s time to do something about it.
Step up your skin maintenance with a hard-hitting approach. Target lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone with active Retinol – 0.3% to be exact. At this concentration level, you’ll start seeing improvement as the skin is resurfaced over time. Start slowly and build up to continuous nightly use for best results.
Annoyingly, as we age, our skin loses its youthful “bounce”, which is partly due to a decline in collagen and elastin. However, if we’re able to actively speed up dead skin cell turnover we can brighten, plump and improve the overall appearance. Choose products that stimulate collagen and elastin production and put back some of that elusive, youthful bounce.
Retinol reignites the skin’s renewal process which is useful for improving acne and large or open pores.
Skinsense Retinol serum has a slightly thicker consistency than your average serum product and spreads evenly over the skin.
My preference is to use it alone but it’s fine if you want to layer it with your own choice of night cream. Just make sure you allow the Retinol serum to absorb fully first.
