Review: Skin Chemists Advanced Retinol Moisturiser

When it comes to night creams I like to invest in decent ones as I feel like they’re potent enough to hydrate the skin overnight, fight against ageing and reverse any damage that might have been caused to the skin during the day - due to sun and environmental factors. I have come across this brand called “Skin Chemists” on and I was extremely intrigued to know if this brand is any good, as I have never heard anyone else talking about it. Today’s review is going to be all about their Retinol advanced night cream, which I have been testing for around two month now.

Disclaimer: This blog post is not sponsored and the product was not sent to me by the brand. I bought this cream from my own money and this is my honest feedback about the product.

I won’t ramble a lot about the brand but in a nutshell - Skin Chemists is a British brand that has been in the market for more than 50 years, it was developed by a chemist who developed formulations that go beyond ordinary skincare and help the skin combat ageing and other concerns. They have a wide range of face and body products for both men and women - so there is something for everyone! 

The moisturizer comes in a tall white bottle with a pump and in my opinion it looks super elegant and luxurious. The pump makes it super easy and hygienic to dispense the product, which is always a plus for any product. However, I wish the bottle was more transparent so I can see how much of the product is left. 

This moisturiser is supposed to hydrate the skin, reduce black heads and acne, fight against ageing and improves the texture of the skin. The formula of this cream is extremely light weight on the skin and gets absorbed super quickly without leaving the skin feeling overly greasy. I would say this can be used by all skin types including oily and sensitive.Also, it has a flattering and very faint scent that isn’t overpowering or offensive. I have been using this cream for almost two months and I can definitely see the difference it has made. My skin did not breakout in these couple of months even though I’m currently going through a lot of work stress and not maintaining the healthiest lifestyle *guilty*. Also, I can definitely notice the improvement on my skin texture and I wake up the next day with radiant and healthy looking skin. This is mainly due to this product containing Retinol, which helps eliminate all these skin concerns and fight the early signs of ageing. 

Overall opinion: 
I’m really enjoying the advanced retinol moisturizer by Skin Chemists as it did deliver what it claimed and I can definitely see myself repurchasing this product. I’m also intrigued to try other products by the brand and will keep you posted if I do purchase anything else in the future.

Note: Skin Chemists Advanced Retinol Moisturiser is priced at AED 220 from
