The Retinol 0.5 Oil from COSRX is designed to unveil a glowy, radiant complexion, improving skin elasticity while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

Made for intermediate-level retinol users, this powerful oil is formulated with 0.5% stabilised, pure retinol to combat progressive signs of ageing such as loss of elasticity and dryness. Accelerating collagen production and skin turnover, it improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, revealing smoother, more radiant skin. Plant-derived squalane shields against environmental aggressors, preserving the skin's moisture barrier, while tocotrienol (super vitamin E) minmises visible signs of aging and skin damage. 

For those looking to level up their retinoid game with a higher percentage, the luxurious oil texture glides effortlessly onto the skin — making it perfect to use with a guasha for a spa-like experience that boosts absorption and promotes circulation.

Before You Start:
•⁠ ⁠Patch test to ensure compatibility with your skin.
•⁠ ⁠Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
•⁠ ⁠It's recommended to start with a lower concentration if you're new to retinol and gradually increase.

Step-by-Step Guide:
1.⁠ ⁠Begin with a gentle cleanser to remove impurities and excess oil, leaving your skin fresh and ready to absorb the serum.
2.⁠ ⁠If toner is part of your routine, apply it after cleansing to balance your skin's pH.
3.⁠ ⁠Start small and slow! During evening care, apply 1 to 2 drops to your hand and tap with fingertips from inside out, let absorb. Limit initial use to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to every other night, use as tolerated.
4.⁠ ⁠Have an ‘adaption period’ when using retinol. You can also mix the oil with a cream to adapt slowly.

Week 1-2
- Frequency: Use only 2~3 times a week at night.
- How to Use: After cleansing, at the serum step, apply 1-2 drops to areas of concern, e.g., under eyes, mouth, forehead, and neck.

Week 3~
- Frequency: May apply every other day at night.
- How to use: After cleansing, at the moisturiser step, may spread over the entire face.

5.⁠ ⁠Retinol can make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 during the day, even if you only apply the serum at night.

Additional Tips:
•⁠ ⁠Be cautious when combining retinol with other active ingredients such as vitamin C, benzoyl peroxide, or AHA/BHAs to avoid irritation.
•⁠ ⁠Results can take several weeks to become noticeable. Consistent use is essential for best results.
•⁠ ⁠The 'building tolerance' phase can be shortened or extended depending on individual preference.

PLEASE NOTE: We always recommend a quick patch test before using a new product. Simply apply a small amount to a hidden area of your skin (such as your wrist or neck) to make sure you don't have any reactions or sensitivities to your new K-Beauty product.
