Nicole Kidman is definitely not a retinol sceptic.
“I believe in retinol – I do think it works,” she said. Her pick?
“I love the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair ... It has retinol, but I don’t break out from it. I have naturally dry skin and it doesn’t let my skin dry out. I can put it on at night and know that it’s evening [out] my skin tone.”

“I’ve been using retinol going on eight years now,” Rosie has revealed.
“For me, it really helps with any kind of acne marks or old scars that I have left over, fine lines that are beginning to show, and just general evenness and tone across my skin.”
Her retinol of choice? Medik8.

As an ambassador for Neutrogena, Kerry is a vocal skincare advocate. The actress praises the beauty brand’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Retinol Pro+ .5% Power Serum.
“This new serum is so fantastic because it’s [Neutrogena’s] highest concentration of retinol, but it’s crazy gentle on the skin,” she has said.
“I don’t have to put a barrier between the retinol and my skin – I can really just let it do what it does, which is so fantastic.”

Gemma is a fan of combining retinol with hyaluronic acid, and she seems to be onto a winner.
“The serums that I swear by: a L’Oréal Paris Night Serum with retinol that I use at night, and then during the day I use the L’Oréal Paris Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which moisturises and plumps my skin, and preps it for anything to come. Those two are a great combo,” she says.

Just like us, Busy has felt the financial sting of buying expensive skincare. However, after much trial and error, she discovered Olay’s incredible retinol formula.
“I returned to Olay, and then ended up working with them and I was like, ‘Oh, right. I can use the Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Face Serum and my skin loves it, and also I can afford to go out to dinner!’” she has said.

Victoria has always loved the cosmeceutical brand, Cosmedix. Which is why it came as little surprise that her retinol of choice is the beauty brand’s Elite Serum 24 Rapid Renewal. This even formula contains vitamin E to keep the skin utterly smooth and hydrated, while protecting against free radicals.
