This cream contains pro-retinol, which is milder than retinol and doesn’t degrade when exposed to the sun’s rays.

I thought this sounded like a bargain.

It claims to give glowing skin and reduce wrinkles. But I wasn’t keen from the off.

This day cream felt very greasy and had an off-putting smell. Then a bumpy rash developed on my forehead.

I found a little bit really went a long way with this silky serum, and smeared it all over my face.

It felt silky and luxurious. I noticed it really cleared my skin of blemishes and made it feel softer.

I love that it had a much-needed effect reducing my large pores, which are tough to crack.

I didn’t find it too strong either. my favourite.

LUXURY- Obagi, Retinol 1.0 (£63.32 for 28 grams, skincity.com):

This is also used at night.

It claims to gently release ingredients to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This has a wrinkle-busting 1% retinol.

It’s of a quite thick consistency, and has a slight chemical odour, but is quickly absorbed into the skin.

I used it to smooth some scars on my face, as well as wrinkles on my forehead.

After a month’s use I noticed a real difference, but you have to build up as it’s really strong and can cause irritation.
