Additional Information

Why is it different?
SKIN RECOVERY Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum is what your skin needs to be hydrated, softer and younger-looking. This high-performance, silky-smooth serum contains an ideal assortment of beneficial ingredients for dry skin to reestablish a dewy, hydrated glow and improve the appearance of wrinkles. It has a luxuriously rich texture and absorbs easily into skin.
Collapse
What does it do?
Bathes dry, parched skin in wrinkle-smoothing retinol and hydrating, antioxidant-enriched plant oils. Smooths, softens, and fights the appearance of visible signs of environmental damage and ageing as it helps strengthen skin so it’s better able to resist environmental attack and future signs of ageing. Formulated to be gentle enough for sensitive skin, including for skin prone to eczema.
Collapse
How to use
Smooth a few drops onto face, neck and eye area before moisturising (or use alone). For optimal results, use AM and PM. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

    I LOVE this product. It goes on like silk. looks oily, but goes into the skin beautifully. It is so soothing to apply, and chock full of goodness for the skin. I use this at night only, under my night time moisturiser. I won't change from this serum.

    Comments about Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with Retinol - 30 ml:

    I bought this as my first foray into Retinol treatments. I'm prone to dry and sensitive skin so I was worried about getting that notorious 'Retinol burn', and for that reason I was drawn to the fact that this serum was ultra-moisturising and repairing. It hasn't caused any irritation to my skin, but I haven't been a fan of its texture, which is like a thick oil. I can't get away with wearing it during the day because it's too greasy and shiny. If I wear it every night, I get some blocked pores. I appreciate it's gentleness and that a little goes a very long way, but I won't buy it again; my next Retinol purchase will be the Resist intensive repair cream, which I've tried in samples and which has a lighter but still moisturising texture.

      Comments about Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with Retinol - 30 ml:

      At first I was quite sceptical about this product, because of the low volume of liquid (30ml) and the high cost. I assumed it be expensive and then be gone very quickly.

      But I'm very impressed with the product! It has a beautiful silky feel and surprisingly lasts quite a long time for such a small amount (with application once a day, it generally lasts me about 4 months). The nozzle helps to deliver a droplet or two to your fingertips easily. It is safe for your eye area, so it helps keep that dry well moisturised.

      I have noticed a change for the better in my skin, particularly a reduction in uneven skin tone and fine lines.

      I also used to add argan oil to my routine between exfoliating and applying my SPF 15 moisturiser, because PC's products didn't supply enough moisture to my dry skin areas (even when using the products for dry skin). I have been able to use this instead and feel that I now have enough moisture in my skin care routine without using argan oil.

      Highly recommend for the people with dry skin out there, it adds that last touch to the PC skin care routine.

          Comments about Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with Retinol - 30 ml:

          I've been using PC for couple months now and decided to include this in my morning routine as l have very dry and sensitive skin, especially during winter months. Unfortunately after just a couple days my redness increased, itchy and very ugly to look at. I stopped using product but it took me around two weeks to calm down with special chemist cream.... Just two weeks ago l decided to try product again, thinking maybe it wasn't serum that irritated my skin first time, but unfortunately l was wrong, red patches around nose and under eyes came back.... I wanted to love this product but for some reason it's not for my skin.... I never had any issue with Resist range ...

            Comments about Skin Recovery Antioxidant Serum with Retinol - 30 ml:

            I really wish I'd taken "before" photos when I started using this at 24. Because they wouldn't be much different to any "after" photos taken now at 31. I started using this to calm redness for my accutane-induced skin sensitivity. I was also hoping it would help with the tiny tiny lines around my eyes and mouth. Well it helped - the ones around my mouth just don't exist anymore and the ones around my eyes are frozen in time. This product is not a moisturiser, you'll need something else for that. But it is absolutely my secret weapon for keeping my skin bright and tight. My partner is 26 and I swear this serum is the only reason he's never heard an "older woman" joke from his family or friends.

              I use this morning and night along with the Skin Recovery softening cream cleanser and replenishing moisturiser. I think its a fantastic product. I have rosacea and it calms the skin and reduces redness. I think its key to controlling my rosacea.

                This is a good serum but I'm not sure it is particularly moisturising for my super dry/dehydrated skin despite the oil-like texture. I will continue to use it but might try something else once I have finished this tube.
