Dermalogica Dynamic Retinol Renewal Serum Review

To take signs of ageing seriously, you need retinol in your skincare routine. And if you want to take signs of ageing seriously in just two weeks, you need the Dermalogica Dynamic Retinol Renewal Serum in your skincare routine.

Read on to find out why this high-dose, fast-acting facial serum is a must for any retinol fan looking to smooth out wrinkles, restexturise skin, minimise the look of pores, and even tone…


The Most Important Thing About The Dermalogica Dynamic Serum Is…

Dermalogica’s facial serum uses the skin-enhancing powerhouse retinol to fight common skin concerns: wrinkles, uneven texture and tone, and pores. But this isn’t your run-of-the-mill retinol serum – it uses an advanced retinoid blend plus a booster to help transform your skin’s appearance. It’s shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in just a fortnight visibly, according to clinical tests.

What Skin Type Is It For?

It’s suitable for normal skin types but only recommended for expert retinol users due to its 3.5% dosage. That’s a hefty concentration!

Hero Ingredients:

The Dermalogica Dynamic Retinol Renewal Serum offers only one version of retinol; here, you get a fast-acting Granactive Retinoid®, retinol, time-released encapsulated retinol, and a retinol booster. Why the need for so many retinols? To give your skin a fighting chance against major signs of ageing, of course! They support the continual release of skin-smoothing actives by working at different speeds to address four signs of ageing.

The serum also promotes skin recovery for a healthier-looking complexion using concentrated squalane and soothing, oat-derived beta-glucan.


What Does It Feel Like?

Surprisingly lightweight! The pale yellow facial serum has a light creamy texture that melts into the skin in seconds.

What Does It Smell Like?

Dermalogica’s vegan serum has a slightly citrusy scent when you first dispense it, but it’s not noticeable once it’s been massaged into your skin.


How Do You Use The Product?

After cleansing, apply a thin layer over your face at night. Take care to avoid the eye area. If dryness or redness occurs, reduce frequency. And yes, you should always, always, always use a high broad-spectrum SPF in the daytime when using retinol in your skincare routine.


What’s Special About The Design?

Dermalogica’s retinol serum is held in a white pump bottle topped with a plum-coloured lid. Its clean pump dispenser allows for easy and hygienic application.
