Kiehl’s launches its first retinol product
Curious about retinol, the holy grail skincare ingredient that’s been proven to target everything from wrinkles to acne to discolouration, but feel intimidated by the often-potent and irritating vitamin A derivative? Kiehl’s has come to your rescue. The brand’s first-ever retinol product, Retinol Skin-Renewing Daily Micro-Dose Serum, is here and promises to be a breakthrough in the way the ingredient is delivered. Formulated in a precise daily dosage that delivers benefits while minimizing the uncomfortable side effects associated with traditional retinol formulas, this micro-dosing delivery system ensures you don’t overdo it and instead works to steadily promote cell turnover. In other words, it’s essentially foolproof.

Just like Guerlain, I think of art as an inexhaustible source of inspiration. I’m used to saying that art is the love of my life.” We can’t wait to see what magic Violette brings to the brand.
