Retinol recommendations

I'm looking to introduce a retinol to my skincare routine but I haven't a clue which is best to buy.

I know there are different strengths/formulas and I'm not sure where to start - help please!

A good place to start is with the Indeed Labs Retinol Reface. It's a good forumulation and well-packaged, which much to my annoyance is not always the case with retinol, despite it being well-known that it degrades on exposure to light or oxygen.

It's available in Boots and last time I checked it was on special offer for about £13.

I would also highly recommend Indeed Retinol Reface, I started 2-3 times a week. I also use Glycolic acid pads on the other evenings & also each morning (Superdrug Radiant ones, often on an offer). Both have made a big difference to my skin. I do also have the Pixi Glow tonic which I use sometimes but not sure it’s any better than the Glycolic. Make sure you use an spf aswell. I swop between Clinique City Block & La Roche-Posay Anthelios.
