Why it's special
Contains 0.3% pure Retinol in water-free formulation. Retinol is proven to fade fine lines & wrinkles, even skin tone and smoothen skin
Packed with potent antioxidants. Coenzyme Q10 is an outstanding radical scavenger and visibly reduces wrinkle depth. It is coupled with Tocopherol (Vitamin E), another antioxidant, that nourishes & repairs skin

- RMRintu Mary R.Verified ReviewerI do not recommend this productRated 1 out of 5 stars7 months agoDamaged bottle and poor quality products
Last week ordered for retinol 0.3% along with glycolic cleanser and moisturizer. Received within 2 days. However, the bottle cap of retinol is damaged and causing spillage. And the cleanser is a stock of July 2022. Almost 1 year old. Trying to reach the team for a replacement since then. No prompt response or resolution yet.
Being using Minimalist in India since it's inception. Never faced this kind of issues. Also the packaging was of a poor quality. Looks like Minimalist is only interested in global expansion right now and has compromised on actual quality and main objective of the company.
Also the customer service is non-existent here in UAE compared to India.
Would appreciate a resolution asap

It’s only been a week so I can’t really speak to any results. My skin feels a bit drier even though I had been using retinol capsules 3x a wk. I think this is a higher percentage and I started using if more frequently. So I might have to cut back on the amount of days I use it
Most Dermatologists say to start low and slow . Maybe I increased too soon ? I will update when I see results…

I just got my bottle today and I am so excited..This is a very lightweight oil and it absorbs quickly and leaves me with a nice glow. I am a.light skinned Latina and have very dry skin but other retinol products give me too much redness. I found the Dermatologist on YouTube who works specifically with skin of color and she recommended this as safe for us.. Also, I trust the Indian people. I love their products and consumer goods. They are some.of the most brilliant people in the human population. Greetings from Southern California.
