Retinol Evening Renewal Serum (1 fl oz)

Return to Previous Page


What It Does:

● Fades sun spots, age spots, and other hyperpigmentation
● Diminishes wrinkles
● Brightens and firms by boosting cell turnover
● Promotes clearer skin and tighter pores

Who It’s For:

Most skin types (this product may be too active for some extra sensitive skin types) seeking anti-aging and rejuvenation from past damage to the skin.

How It Works:

If you can use retinol, you should. Retinol is one of the most lauded ingredients in skin care and decades of impressive results in studies prove why. Dermatologists recommend products containing this powerfully effective vitamin A derivative more than any other anti-aging topical because it addresses such a wide range of signs of aging and damage to the skin. But prescription-strength retinol can be irritating, requires a doctor’s visit, and usually does not come in a synergy with other beneficial ingredients.

The Retinol Evening Renewal Serum delivers 1% retinol in a synergistic blend of anti-aging actives that proves less can truly be more. Rather than a one-dimensional high dose retinol product that could do more harm than good, the Retinol Evening Renewal Serum pairs just the right amount of retinol with other dermatological powerhouse ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ferulic acid to maximize results and minimize the potential for sensitivity in most skin types. This serum also packs two B vitamins, B3 (niacinamide) for hyperpigmentation and inflammatory conditions like acne, and B5 for moisture retention and clarifying acne-prone skin.

These active ingredients paired with a results-optimizing concentration of retinol makes this serum essential for your anti-aging regimen.

    I started using the Retinol Evening Renewal Serum six weeks ago along with the Salicylic Cleanser. I was really impressed when Kate Ryan guided me towards starting slow with the products, cleanser first then adding on once I felt it out. They could have easily suggested a full regimen but instead noted the high quality ingredients and potency to their formulations and encouraged me to slowly introduce my skin for best results. Overall my skin is brighter and smoother. I’m no longer breaking out weekly like I had before, my pores seem less noticeable and my makeup goes on so much smoother. Excited to see more changes as time goes on as well as trying more products. Packaging was so well done and the little note was a sweet touch.

    I’ve been using KateRyan skincare about 5 months, and my skin feels wonderful, less lines visible on the forehead and around the eyes. I had collagen injections about 4 years ago and my face and skin felt fuller and smoother, but that only lasted about 3 years. Since being introduced to the vitamin c serum and the collagen booster serum, my skin and face are almost back to the fullness and smoothness I experienced with the injections, which by the way are painful and expensive. I’m very happy with all the products, DMAE serum, retinol serum and even the cleanser, which I wasn’t crazy about at first, but have definitely changed my mind! Keep doing what you’re doing, I’m a fan!

    This product is amazing! I could tell a difference the next morning after using this. I have rosacea, so I was hesitant about using a product with Retinol. But not being in my thirties anymore, I felt like I should be using something. This is gentle but effective. It’s nice that you don’t need a lot either. This definitely changed the appearance of my skin!

    Just have been using this a month, and already seeing improvements in my skin! Have always had a problem with blackheads around my chin area, and they are diminished! I am always so impressed by the intregrety of this company! The fact that the freshness date is hand-written on each bottle speaks volumes! Thanks, Kate Ryan!

Tips For Use

If you have tried prescription Retin-A and found that it was too irritating for your skin, here’s good news. Kate’s Retinol Evening Renewal Serum can give you significant anti-aging improvements, comparable to those obtained by using a prescription product, without the irritation. If sensitivity does occur, reduce use to every other day.

For Your Safety

When using any product with a form of retinol (Vitamin A), as contained in our Retinol Evening Renewal Serum, your skin can be more sensitive to the sun (even though you are only using the product at night). When using this product, it is even more important to protect your skin with sunscreen, SPF 30 or above. Choose a product that states "UVA/UVB," protection or has "broad spectrum" protectant.

This product has not been tested for use by women who are pregnant or nursing. We do not recommend using retinol, or any form of Vitamin A during pregnancy or while nursing. We always recommend consulting your physician or medical care professional to assess the safety of any high potency topical skincare product.
