What Is Inside The Eclat Skin London Retinol Serum?

The Eclat Skin London Retinol Serum combines soothing and hydrating ingredients with the beneficial ingredient retinol. The full ingredients are as follows: 

Aqua - Solvent for ingredients to mix.
Alcohol Denat - Penetration enhancer to help ingredients deliver into the skin while giving formulas a light texture. It can be drying to the skin but followed with hydrating ingredients can counter balance this effect.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice - Moisturises and soothes the skin with anti-inflammatory benefits while also supporting healing and regeneration of the skin. 
Glycerin - Natural moisturiser found in the skin, it supports the lipids and barrier function of the skin while also being a humectant that is ideal for dry skin types. 
Sodium Polyacryloyldimethyl taurate - Controls the texture of a formula while also stabilising and improving the efficacy of the product. 

Hydrogenated Polydecene - Pure and hypoallergenic emollient that forms a breathable film on top of the skin without feeling greasy or sticky. 

Retinol - Proven anti-aging benefits once converted in the skin to retinoic acid while also improving texture and tone of the skin.

Ethylhexylglycerin - Emollient and preservative that helps boost the effectiveness of phenoxyethanol. 
Trideceth-10 - Acts as an emollient, helps water and oil ingredients mix, while also helping to deliver specific ingredients deeper into the skin and helps the product spread on application.

How To Use The Eclat Skin London Retinol Serum?

Presented in a sealed bottle, the lightweight and silky gel-serum can easily be dispensed onto cleansed skin at night. Applying a pea sized amount (One Pump Delivers The Perfect Amount) the hydrating gel glides over the skin easily and absorbs quite quickly to leave a softer and smoother feeling to the skin. Ideally you should wait at least 20 minutes to allow any retinoid to fully work with no interaction that could hinder its performance if products are immediately applied over the top. You can then follow with your hyaluronic acid serum and a night time moisturiser that is typically richer in texture to comfort and support the skin overnight. 
I really like how easy it is to use to slot the retinol serum into your skincare routine at night and even though there are scents included in the ingredients, i couldn't detect a strong scent at all.
