6 effective, but gentle retinol products you need to try RN

Retinol is a skincare hero! It is responsible for boosting collagen production in your skin, thereby keeping signs of ageing at bay. Regular use of retinol-infused products can help red your skin if fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to this, retinol is also known for producing new blood vessels in your skin. This helps fade dark spots, soften rough patches on the skin, maintain a clear complexion and keep your nose blackhead free!

As good as it sounds, pure retinol formulations can sometimes be too overwhelming for your skin, which is why we picked some effective, but gentle retinol-infused products to help you upgrade your anti-ageing skincare routine effectively.


01. Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Day Cream SPF 18

In addition to retinol, this day cream is also infused with vitamin B3 and powerful bio-active ingredients to help renew skin cells, reduce wrinkles and give your skin a radiant glow. Retinol use can make your skin overly sensitive, which is why this SPF infused formula is perfect for day time use!


02. Pond’s Age Miracle Wrinkle Corrector Night Cream
