Retinol - no idea where to start?  Here’s the low down.

Retinol truly is the gold standard ingredient when it comes to effective skincare. This form of Vitamin A alters the behaviour of skin cells, making them act in a more youthful, collagen-boosted manner.

Skinician's Ageless range contains two powerful retinol products that are designed to fight against the visible signs of ageing. The Level Up System allows you to increase your retinol intake at a pace that suits your skin type for maximum results.

​Skinician believe in a minimal approach to skincare, creating multi-functional products that address an array of concerns and deliver maximum results. Potent Retinol Power Balms dramatically target and reduce the signs of ageing, improving skin tone and texture. Skin appears rejuvenated, lines and wrinkles reduced, and pigmentation faded. ​

The results are pretty spectacular so if you've been completely lost with where to start, here you go:

Retinol Power Balm Level 1

Retinol Power Balm Level 1 €76.80

The perfect product to introduce retinol into your daily routine. This potent balm actively targets all the signs of advanced ageing. Fortified with a blend of 3 Powerhouse Peptides and Active Retinol (0.1%).


  • Reverses signs of ageing by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin
  • Slows down ageing by protecting collagen structures

When your skin is ready and can tolerate Level 1, progress onto Level 2.

This luxurious facial balm is formulated with five times more retinol than Level 1 it is designed to take users to the next level with maximum results. ​

To use, apply as part of your nighttime routine after thorough cleansing and toning. Apply 2 to 3 pumps to clean skin and work in circular movements to the face and neck, avoiding the delicate eye area. Follow with Skinician Advanced Restoring Night Cream.

Note: It is important to build up your tolerance to Retinol so we recommend starting with Level 1 and introducing into your routine gradually as your skin can tolerate. Every other night for the first week and mixing with your night cream if you need a buffer. Stick with Level 1 for at least one bottle, then when your skin is ready move onto Level 2.
