Reviving Serum | 1% Retinol
Not suitable for use during pregnancy
Brand new to FaceStuff and after years of searching by founder, Renée, the new range of cruelty free serums is now available.
The Reviving Serum is a 1% retinol serum and is a great entry level retinoid if you are just starting out with retinol serums.
The Reviving Serum has hyaluronic acid included in the formulation so the usual effects of starting out with retinol (dryness, redness or irritation) should be minimised.
Including hyaluronic acid with retinol in the Reviving Serum means there is no need for layering serums - making your routine less complicated.
Retinol serum can stimulate cell production which has an exfoliating effect on the skin, brightening and smoothing it. Another benefit of using the Reviving Serum is the regulation of oil production which can minimise break outs in acne prone skin.
For more info about our cruelty free serums please check out the Serum Starter Guide here.
Available in three sizes;
Refill options are coming soon!
How to use Reviving Serum
Adding a retinol serum to your routine can cause disruptions to your skin while it adjusts. If you have sensitive skin, please start with a 5ml vial for patch testing before you commit to a larger size.
When starting the Reviving Serum use once a week and apply it between two layers of moisturiser or night cream. So cleanse then use your toner (or skin drink), add moisturiser as a buffer, apply your serum and then add more moisturiser.
Protect the delicate eye area by using an eye cream before applying any retinol serum, and (unlike hyaluronic acid) apply the Reviving Serum to a dry face.
Use the Reviving Serum twice in the second week and three times in the third week. You might find you can work up to daily use, but this isn't essential to see results.
Experiencing the effects of retinol is a long game, it can take up to six months to really notice a difference in your skin's tone and texture and the minimising of fine lines.
If using a vitamin C serum, use that in the morning and Reviving Serum in the evening. It's important to apply sunscreen daily when using any retinol serum.
If using a pea size amount of Reviving Serum three times a week, you can expect (approximately);
- Three weeks of use from a 5ml tester
- Five months of use from a 30ml bottle
If you're a daily retinol user, you can expect (approximately);
- 10 days of use from a 5ml tester
- 60 days or two months of use from a 30ml bottle
- 200 days or six months of use from a 100ml bottle

I started using this as a total retinol rookie but wow, I'm loving it!! I've noticed a big reduction in my hormonal breakouts, and my skin feels a lot smoother. Goes on very nicely, super lovely formulation.
I’ve noticed a difference in my skin already. I’m really impressed. It’s clearer and brighter. Ive been searching for the perfect serum for a long time now I have really sensitive skin and I’m so excited I’ve found the one. Cruelty free too! Amasing!
A beautiful lush feeling product that is thick and feels amazing on the skin. Leaves you feeling refreshed and skin glowing. My sensitive skin has tolerated the addition of the retinol really well and I'll be definitely be getting more and leveling up when I get my next next bottle!
