COSRX The Retinol 0.5 Oil 20ml

The newest “Holy Grail” product released from COSRX, this retinol-based face oil is truly one of the brands’ most innovative formulations. This product contains a gentle yet effective concentration of pure and stabilised retinol (free of derivatives) suspended within a gorgeously silky, elegant formula. The usage of a variety of other ingredients in harmony with the retinol works to boost skin elasticity, promote a smoother and firmer complexion, fade signs of aging (such as fine lines, wrinkles etc.), and leave the skin softer. The high quality ingredients further work well to provide a youthful and refreshing complexion!

Moreover, this oil has a beautiful and lightweight, fast-absorbing texture, which applies great over toners and other serums, providing an extra layer of moisture and sinking in without hassle. Continuous use of the oil also results in progressive improvements to the skins’ moisture barrier and dryness.

Follow with a thicker and moisturising cream in order to prevent the skin from drying out. Also note that whilst all skin types can benefit from retinol, it is still an active ingredient. Therefore it’s important to ensure that you introduce it gradually into your skincare routine to build up your skin's tolerance to the ingredient.

Start off with once or twice a week, increasing frequency if your skin permits.
