How it works

Encourages the skin to renew itself and helps promote collagen and elastin production, whilst simultaneously conditioning to reveal a smooth, even complexion.

How to use

Use in the PM, after cleansing. Apply a few pumps of the serum across your face and lightly massage into the skin. Allow to absorb and follow with your moisturiser, if preferred. Use sun protection during the day.

For Retinoid 1, initially we would recommend you use it twice a week, building up to 3-4 times per week depending on your skin’s need.

If you are currently using an acid product (e.g. AHA, BHA toner), we would recommend you use this and the retinoid on alternate days.

PM Retinoid routine example: Cleanse, Tone (hydrating toners/mists only), Retinoid 1 or 2 Treatment, Eye Cream, Moisturise (if needed).

FAQs

Can I use my refill without the pump?

No. It is essential to have the pump mechanism screwed onto the refill to dispense the product correctly, not waste any product, and protect the formula.

Can I use my refill interchangeably with either Retinoid bottle?

In theory, yes, but we advise you not to do this. For example, if you have purchased a Retinoid 1 and want to purchase a Retinoid 2 Refill, we recommend not mixing the packaging to prevent cross-contamination of formulas.

What ACTIVE % of retinoid is in Retinoid 1/Retinoid 2?

Skin Rocks Retinoid 1 contains 0.2% hydroxypinacolone retinoate. Skin Rocks Retinoid 2 contains 0.5% hydroxypinacolone retinoate & 0.05% retinal, meaning that the product contains a total of 0.55% active retinoid.

Which Skin Rocks Retinoid is stronger? How are the Skin Rocks Retinoids different to each other?

Skin Rocks Retinoid 1 & 2 differ due to the ACTIVE vitamin A system used. Retinoid 1 contains hydroxypinacolone retinoate (HPR), whereas Retinoid 2 contains HPR & retinal. Skin Rocks Retinoid 2 is currently the strongest variant we offer.

Which Skin Rocks Retinoid should I buy?

The Skin Rocks Retinoids have been developed as a series – you choose the most appropriate depending on your previous exposure to vitamin A products.

Skin Rocks Retinoid 1 has been formulated for beginners, or those with concerns around sensitivity: those who have not used retinoids previously/have used low-strength retinoids irregularly in the past.

Skin Rocks Retinoid 2 has been formulated for intermediate users: those who have regularly used mid/high strength retinoids in the past, with no issues with sensitivity. If a user has been using high strength retinoids/actives previously, Retinoid 2 is sufficient for maintaining results. Retinoid 1 is suitable for those with sensitive skin, while Retinoid 2 is not. You should not use a retinoid if you have experienced previous vitamin A irritation. You should always patch test before using a new product.
