If you’ve recently noticed your skin has lost its glow or has an uneven texture, then you’ve probably been searching for a retinol youth serum to solve the problem. But finding the right one is an overwhelming challenge, and chances are, a lot of them won’t actually do anything to improve the look of your fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Well, according to Sephora and Amazon shoppers
, the anti-aging retinol serum from The INKEY List actually delivers on its promise to fix uneven skin tone. The cruelty-free formula uses a potent-yet-gentle mix of RetiStar Stabilised Retinol 1% and Granactive Retinoid 0.5%, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and squalane, which hydrates and soothes the skin.

This formula releases retinol over a longer period of time, which lessens the risk of irritation. But even though it takes a bit longer to kick in than most serums, people say they notice a difference in their skin within a few days.

“There are no words for how much this product changed my skin,” one Sephora shopper wrote. “I did my research before starting retinol and this is a well-recommended and safe option … It truthfully practically clears any breakouts overnight, and I have noticed my discoloration has improved over time.”

Another five-star reviewer wrote, “Can you say AmaZING, this product is fantastic … I saw a difference within a few days, my fine lines were minimizing and my dark spots fading makes me a happy girl. I do advise that if you have sensitive skin don’t use every day at first, let your skin adapt slowly.”

And over on Amazon, one shopper said that in a week’s time, their skin has done a complete 180. “I’ve only been using it for about a week and I’ve already noticed a difference! My pores are definitely tighter and the fine lines on my forehead and under my eyes seem to be slightly less noticeable.”

Add The INKEY List’s retinol serum — currently going for under $11 at Sephora — into your skincare routine and watch the magic happen.
