We know Retinol to be the ‘gold standard’ for addressing signs of skin ageing. It offers multiple, fast, visible results for the skin. From softening lines and wrinkles, fading uneven skin tone, smoothing skin, and minimising the appearance of slack pores, it’s one of the most esteemed ingredients in skincare.

Not all retinol is created equal

Although a high performer in the skincare arena, Retinol also has a reputation for causing sensitivity or dry, flaky skin. It can be a real juggling act to find a Retinol serum that delivers on results, and at the same time, respects the health of the skin.


Results without compromise

At Dermalogica, we don’t take shortcuts: we believe that easy solutions for ageing skin don’t have to come at the cost of skin health. That’s why the experts at Dermalogica have formulated a high-dose, fast-acting Retinol serum containing a 3.5% Retinoid complex.


Meet Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum. This high-dose Retinol formula features multiple retinoids, working at different speeds, to address the four signs of skin ageing:


1.    Helping to reverse the appearance of wrinkles

2.    Evening skin tone

3.    retexturizing skin

4.    Minimising the appearance of pores.

What makes this advanced Retinol formula unique, is that not only have we have balanced different types of Retinoids, but we’ve balanced this 3.5% Retinoid complex with skin-strengthening ingredients, to maintain optimal skin health and reduce the potential for irritation. Real results and skin health go hand in hand with Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum.

A Proven Solution to Address Signs of Skin Ageing

As a result of the advanced Retinoid blend, Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum delivers results fast. In fact, in just two weeks, Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum has been clinically proven to easily reduce the four common signs of skin ageing*. It’s a go-to treatment for anyone wanting to rejuvenate their skin, along with offering a solution for those that have tried Retinol treatments with minimal skin improvement and those who have found Retinol to be harsh on their skin.

How To Use Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum

Retinol should only be used in your night-time skincare routine. On a clean skin, ideally after toning, apply a thin layer of Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum over face, approximately 1 pump, and massage into the skin, avoiding the delicate eye and lip area – AGE Reversal Eye Complex is our recommended Retinol treatment for the eyes. After applying the serum, follow with your moisturiser.


Since Retinol helps to accelerate cell turnover, it’s imperative to wear an SPF during the day. Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF50 is a hydrating moisturiser and sunscreen in one that partners perfectly with Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum, helping protect and preserve both results and the health of the skin.  


PRO Tip: Increase use over time, beginning with a few times a week, building up to nightly. Your skin will let you know the ideal frequency for you to use Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum.
