The Ordinary’s retinol in squalane is a great one to start with! It’s something you build a tolerance for over time, so starting with the lowest percentage possible is ideal - plus minimal to no irritation that way 🎉 One of my holy grails for sure!

Have a look at a well formulated retinal product. A step up from retinol. Its abit pricey but so worth it Medik8 is what I recommend. They have a scale for newbies up to advance level retinal for when your ready to scale up. you can also have a consultation with them so they can assist in choosing for you and they also provide tips on how to use them best

ive been using this cerave product which uses encapsulated retinol! its my first time using retinol and i have had a pretty great experience so far. uglyducklingskincare on instagram has a post that explains the different types of retinol but encapsulated is much gentler to my understanding.
