I Tried The Inkey List Retinol Anti-Aging Serum For 1 Week
what’s up guys it’s Amelia welcome back at soup my channel and hello if you are new today I’m gonna be trying out the inky list retinol anti-aging serum for one whole week this product claims to be a powerful retinol that is released slowly to really help promote a smoother and more radiant complexion with a lawless irritation than a normal retinol for those of you who don’t know what retinol is it’s almost like a gold standard for skin care it’s a vitamin a derivative which basically helps promote faster sill turnover in your skin and with regular use can really help reduce the signs of aging and also help clear up some acne so out of all the retinols that are currently on the market why don’t you think you list it is extremely affordable only at $9.
99 it’s definitely one of the least expensive retinols I’ve seen on the market let me know down in the comments below if you’ve seen anything cheaper than this one another reason why I decided to pick up this retinol is that it seems to be really really gentle which is really great for someone like me who is just starting out with retinol retinol and just overall vitamin A derivatives can be extremely irritating to the skin causing a lot of dryness and peeling and you can actually really damage your skin if you are not using it correctly first of all this has a stabilized retinol 1% now I’m not an expert but from my understanding a stabilized retinol is not a pure form of retinol it’s actually almost a watered-down version of a retinol this product also has 0.
5% Grint active retinoid layman’s terms a grande active retinoid is almost like a cousin to retinol meaning it kind of works on your skin in this same way but it is a lot lot less irritating they also have squalene in here which really helps hydrate and soothe the skin which is really gonna help combat and you dryness that this product may inflict on my skin so now that we know what this product kind of claims to do let’s see what kind of skin or starting out with my skin is extremely oily and extremely textured I’m also very acne prone and have very very sensitive skin meaning I pretty much react to like every other product I try like it’s not fun as you can clearly see I have a big breakout going on right now I’m not gonna lie I feel like it is kind of hormone related so I’m really hoping that this product will overall just help smooth my skin out I’m also hoping it’ll really help unclog my pores clear out this breakout I have going on and really reduce any kind of acne marks that this breakouts probably gonna leave on my skin and hopefully maybe get rid of some old acne scarring so let’s put this on my face okay so we are starting this on Sunday May 10th at 844 p.
m. it is recommended that you use this product only at night because this product can make your skin super super sensitive to any type of sun exposure you should be wearing a sunscreen anytime you are using a retinol product you should actually be using sunscreen everyday just say so now that I cleanse my skin I’m gonna take a few precautions that I’ve kind of seen on the Internet to help introduce my skin to this retinol because as I said my skin is crazy sensitive I also did a little test patch on my skin last night and I didn’t see any kind of negative reactions towards the product so that’s why we’re gonna be applying this to my whole face tonight before I apply the product I am gonna be applying a little bit of the ordinary it’s nice into my 10% and think 1% it’s a great product it definitely it recommends when they say it nice and my de is actually a really good buffer to put on your skin if you are experiencing a lot of irritation with redness at least that’s from what I’ve read and then I do want to do one extra precaution because it is my very first time using retinol in a really long time but they say you can actually apply your moisturizer first and then go into the retinol so that’s what I’m gonna be doing further on in the week I’m probably just gonna be applying it right after the niacinamide though so now for a piece they do this thumbs say to use a pea-sized amount so I’m hoping this is a pea-sized amount that is one thing that’s also really important don’t put a lot on your skin a little bit goes a really really long way so I’m just gonna gently kind of spread it out and then I Pat it into the skin it is smooth but like tacky at the same time as well and do not put this anywhere by your eyes it is a really interesting kind of yellow color it doesn’t really smell like anything there is a smell there but I really can’t describe it today one is complete honestly kind of nervous the like really really excited because my breakout has been really really really bad and writing to the Lords that this helps it at least a little bit if it is Monday May 11 other side just looks alright just kind of want to hide my face right now I definitely got like more whiteheads one thing that I did notice last night my skin started to get a little itchy nothing like terrible but like oh the spot itches oh the spot it is yeah it definitely felt a little drying made my skin a little itchy other than that I didn’t really notice too much of a difference I didn’t get any rashes after I applied it so that’s really really good it is recommended that you kind of take it slow especially when you’re introducing yourself to retinol so they kind of recommended to do it like every other night every like maybe third night or something so I think I’m gonna be doing it every other night I’m gonna give my skin a little break tonight and then put it on tomorrow you know it’s really really annoying finally slowly clearing up beginning more sets in the process it did notice I’m getting like a red spot here and there was like a red one right over here as well and I’m also getting like stuff kind of happening underneath like my chin so I’m not really sure what’s going on my fat but I did notice my face was a lot less oily today like a lot less oily and I felt like my nose was actually a little flaky this morning currently Thursday May 14th I just finished filming a video and I have been loving the Wonder Beauty Foundation but today just looks so cakey I really thought I’d do a good job of like preventing the dryness but it’s here apparently that’s only supposed to happen like at the very beginning of retinol in it your skin supposed to get used to it so cross my fingers in this can get these to it really quickly and I’ve heard that retinol can cause you to actually purge because all that gunk is coming to the surface so I’m not gonna panic over little guys that are coming in just yet also I really wanted to try tonight instead of doing the niacinamide moisturizer than this I wanted to do the niacin amide then this little nervous because I feel like my skin’s gonna be really dry [Music] my skin looked really really good this morning well you looked so good however tonight I got a news it another new guy I just started to notice like all these little bumps on my chin but I did notice better results when I used the retinol under the moisturizer and not like as a last step we’ll see how it looks tomorrow it’s officially it’s Sunday May 17th at about 7:30 8 p.
m. so it has officially been one week since I started the Enki list retinol anti-aging serum and even though it’s only been a week I’m actually starting to notice some results and I’m really really really surprised by them it reduced this breakout right here like this breakout was hot and flaming when I first started but this breakout has definitely flattened out like you obviously there’s gonna be a lot of redness a lot of scarring but it did flatten out almost completely there’s still like a little bit of gunk under there but after it kind of got through the little flakiness that was happening I felt like my skin was just getting better like it was getting smoother and less flaky like it’s still a little dry I feel overall little less oily which isn’t a bad thing because summer is right around the corner and my skin gets so oily so if it’s less oily like I’m happy and I don’t know if this is just me thinking that this is happening but I feel like my pores are starting to get a little a little little little smaller I don’t know when I just look in the mirror I noticed something looks different and I don’t know what it is and speaking of pores around Days sakes I noticed I started getting some whiteheads which you can see one right here some over here as well and even had some like around like the corners of my nose I feel like throughout my research some people’s are totally like yes Pershing is a huge thing and other people like ya know purging doesn’t exist but through all of my internet 13 I kind of found that purging would only really occur if you’re using a really exfoliating product which would cause all the dead skin cells does just slough off your skin so they do believe there can be a little bit of purging within the first 28 days of you using a product overall because it does take 28 days for your skin to fully go through a cycle and they also say not only are gonna break out a little bit but that break out it’s not gonna be like terrible or anything gonna be little whiteheads that are gonna come and go away in a couple of days so that’s what I’m kind of seeing right here like cross my fingers it’s not a negative reaction to this retinol but I’m really not surprised it’s happening a lot by my chin area mostly because I feel like I have the most clogged pores on my chin overall I’m actually really impressed at how effective this is now I’ve super-sensitive skin so it might not be the case for you like this might be totally ineffective for you but as a beginner who’s just trying out retinol on her super-sensitive skin this did pack a little punch and I’m starting to see results after only one week now personally I don’t believe that using a product just after one week is really going to showcase a full results of a product I really feel like you need to use a product from anywhere between one to three months to really get the full effect of our product and how it’s gonna benefit or not benefit your skin which is why I’m going to continue documenting my experience using the ink e-list retinol to make sure you’re subscribed to my channel so you guys can see my full 30-day review that I’m gonna be releasing I’m genuinely so excited to see where my skin ends up either this is gonna be amazing or one of the worst things that’s happened to me so yeah give this video a big thumbs up if you have high hopes for my skin and really think that this product is gonna work for me and be sure to let me know down in the comments below if you’ve ever tried the ink Aeolus retinol or any other kind of retinol and what your experience was with them I really want to know all the details and all your recommendations for using a retinol also if you are new and really really like me and want to see more beauty in skincare videos as well as that 30-day review I’m going to be doing of this product then be sure to click the red subscribe button that is right down below and be sure to click the little notification bell that is right next to the subscribe button this way you will be notified every Tuesday and Friday when I upload a brand new video if you guys want to check out another one of my skincare reviews I’m gonna be posting it right down here and if you want to watch my absolute latest video – be sure to click the video that is right up here I hope you guys have a wonderful and absolute gorgeous rest of your day stay healthy and I will see you next time [Music] you [Music]
