HOW TO

Use the Retinol Complex Oil

Gently rub 2-3 drops across the face, neck and chest each evening.

What skin types is the oil best suited to?

All skin types can use the Retinol Complex Oil, including those with sensitive skin who don’t want to use prescription retinoids.

Can I use the oil with my personalised Software formula?

The Retinol Complex Oil can be used on alternate nights to your Software prescription formula but it’s best to steer clear of using these products together. We recommend adding the Retinol Complex Oil into your routine 6-8 weeks after starting your Software formula, once your skin has adjusted.

Normally switching products will make me break out but that hasn’t been the case here, it’s super gentle and barely smells like anything which I’m a big fan of.
