The Avon Anew Clinical Anti Wrinkle Smoothing Serum 0.1% Pure Retinol is presented in sealed packaging to preserve the stability of the active and antioxidant ingredients, making sure they do not oxidise. The pump applicator delivers the perfect amount of the serum on application that presents itself as a non-watery serum (it doesn't run) but rather a lightweight lotion in texture. Gliding over the skin with ease, there is a slight fragrance detected, before it instantly absorbs into the skin leaving a soft and smooth base from the dimethicone's included.

The Avon Anew Clinical Anti Wrinkle Smoothing Serum With 0.1 Pure Retinol states it can be used both morning and night, whilst some may experience slight sensitivity in which case it is suggested to use sparingly until your skin adjusts to this new product. I haven't experienced any side effects but i do think because i am a regular retinol user my skin has become tolerant overtime, it is always important when using any retinol (Vitamin A) to start using it slowly for you then to achieve the goal of applying it every day. I did experiment with the application and applied a hydrating serum before applying this product and found that sometimes the smoothing serum did greet me with the annoying pillage and balling off from the dimethicones in the formulation, but when applying a moisturiser or more importantly a sunscreen (always use SPF protection) over the top this didn't happen. I really do like this smoothing serum product because it offers a brighter complexion because of the mild exfoliation it provides, protection and support from the antioxidants and the peptide included, whilst you cant argue with the scientific research retinol provides and benefits the skin. Add the Avon Anew Clinical Anti Wrinkle Smoothing Serum With 0.1 Pure Retinol into your skin care routine to experience it for yourself, x Neil.
