Patch Testing: When adding new products to your skincare routine, we always recommend patch testing. For serums and creams, apply a small amount of the product on dry cleansed skin behind the ear or on your inner arm. Wait at least 24 hours to see if any irritation occurs. If you notice any irritation such as redness, itchiness or burning, rinse off and discontinue use. Introduce new products slowly, and one at a time, so that you can easily identify any sources of irritation.

However, the quality, effectiveness and performance of the product are reviewed at each manufacture, as part of our commitment to high quality cosmetics.

Q: What is Retinol?
A: Retinol is a type of retinoid, derived from vitamin A, that speeds up skin cell turnover when applied. It helps shed old skin cells and reveal new skin underneath.

Q: How does retinol work?
A: Retinol, a vitamin A derivative, works like a charm to smoothen skin, tackle wrinkles, fade dark spots, and even out skin tone – it's like a superhero for your skin!

Q: What are the main benefits of retinol?
A: Retinol is a multitasker! It fights acne, clears pores, boosts collagen, reduces pigmentation, brightens, and takes care of fine lines and wrinkles.

Q: Are there any side effects of retinol?
A: Yep, there can be side effects like irritation, redness, and dryness, but they differ from person to person depending on the formula and skin type.

Q: Who's the retinol crew for?
A: Good news – retinol is generally safe for most people. It's like a party that everyone's invited to!

Q: Can sensitive skin use retinol?
A: Sensitive skin can totally join the retinol party, but it might need a bit of training. Introduce it slowly and kindly, and watch how your skin reacts.

Q: How should I add retinol to my skincare routine?
A: Get started in your 20s for a glowing future! Introduce it gradually – once or twice a week – and watch for side effects. Always rock that sunscreen too!

Q: When will I see results with retinol?
A: Patience, friend! Results might take a few weeks or months, especially for severe acne. Stay consistent, and your skin will thank you.

Q: Can I mix AHA/BHA with retinol?
A: Mix and match alert! You can combine retinol with AHA (glycolic acid) or BHA (salicylic acid) exfoliants for boosted anti-aging benefits. But make sure to use them at different nights/ time of the day. Just listen to your skin's vibes.

Q: What's special about your Retinol Serum?
A: Our Retinol Serum is like a magic potion – 2.5% retinol, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, jojoba oil, and more! Results kick in after a few weeks of rockin' it.

Q: Can I use AHA/BHA with Retinol?
A: You bet! Research shows that combining retinol with AHA/BHA exfoliants can level up their anti-aging prowess. But play it cool and watch how your skin grooves with it.

Like it a lot skin seems smoother and finer,will be continuing to buy

Sandi (New Zealand)
Happy with purchase

Note: Because I am forgetful, I estimate that I have missed probably 50% of days application, so I don't think I can comment on results yet but I will try to be better and come back with more on that.

BUT, thus far Pal's have been flawless. I did my research before buying a product to help with bags under my eyes after a stressful year. Pal's had excellent pricing, and the highest (and only place selling) 2% retinol! The dispatch speed and communication has been outstanding, and it came with a hand written card which was such a lovely personal touch.

So far I am loving the product. It's not scented, it doesn't hurt eyes (yep, I accidentally got some in there!), it feels nice with no oily residue which given this is a night-application is a big deal. The bottle and packaging are top notch - classy and quality look & feel.

Thanks team :)

Joseph (New Zealand)
Great high strength retinol

Doesn't make my face too oily and I appreciate the fact that it goes up to 2.5% concentration.

Madzee (New Zealand)
Love it!!

It has a very good effect on my face and makes my skin brighter and not looking dull and dry at all. Highly recommended!!

Teresa Adams (New Zealand)
Best night serum

I have a very oily face so I can never use night creams or serums as it gives me pimples but retnol is perfect. My skin is clearer than usual since using it and the skin around my eyes is smoother.

Erin (New Zealand)
Love it

I could feel the difference after using it only a couple of times.

K.D. (New Zealand)

I've tried so many other brands in the past
They all dry out my skin and irritated it
Skin pals is the first retinol that I've ever used that doesn't irritate my skin or dry it out
I've had so many complements on my skin since using it too

Danielle Bly (New Zealand)
Retinol serum

I have been using the retinol serum for 2 months now and I have seen an improvement in my skin tone and fine lines around eyes are forehead. I definitely recommend this product! I will be buying more!

Anonymous (New Zealand)

I've been using Pals retinol for a few weeks now. I noticed after a couple of days my pores became more refined and my skin was generally smoother. It's very easy to apply, aborbs quickly and leaves no sticky residue. It is necessary to finish off with a moisturiser and use only at night as light destroys retinol. Having used numerous similar products for a long time now I would put Pals right up there but comes with a much more affordable price tag! If you are considering trying it you won't be disappointed.

Amy (New Zealand)
Great product great price

I love that this product isn't greasy and is in a high concentration. The price is great too.
