Read on to find out why this cream is so highly rated by skin experts and is a best seller globally.

Why BioBare Retinol Cream?

BioBare Skin Revivify Encapsulated Retinol 0.5% Cream uses clinically proven Retinol at a 0.05% concentration to deliver results and fade the signs of skin ageing. As well as being anti-ageing, Retinol is often helpful in dealing with acne, acne scars and enlarged pores. Retinol can prevent dead skin cells from clogging pores and reduce breakouts. By speeding up cell turnover and stimulating collagen production, it can reduce the appearance of acne scars too.

BioBare Retinol Cream uses the latest in skin care stabilisation and delivery technology. The Retinol is encapsulated in a phospholipid layer so that it gradually releases over time. This ensures your skin gets the most out of the Retinol and reduces potential irritation.

BioBare Retinol Cream is a soft and creamy, and a pleasure to use.

It comes in an opaque pump dispenser to protect the Retinol from oxygen and light. If you head to our blog and read our article on How to Use Retinoids Like a Pro, you’ll find out why this is so important.

The BioBare Retinol Cream is a lush, velvety cream that’s lovely to use.

Key ingredients

Retinol is a widely researched and proven ingredient in skin care. It stimulates collagen production and alters the function of skin cells so they behave more like those of younger skin. When used consistently, this results in skin looking younger and feeling smoother.

In addition to tackling fine lines and wrinkles, Retinol works to diminish other signs of ageing, including dullness, rough texture, uneven tone and those pesky dark spots we all hate.

This cream uses a clinically proven strength of 0.5% to give you a brighter and fresher appearance.

It also contains antioxidant Vitamin E, Safflower Seed Oil, Jojoba, Squalene, Glycerin, Ceramide-3 and Vitamin E.

What you won’t find in this formulation are essential oils or fragrance.


  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Protects against collagen breakdown and enhances its production in the skin.
  • Increases the thickness of the deeper layers of the skin.
  • Brightens the skin and evens out skin tone.
  • Improves hyperpigmentation by curbing the production of melanin in the skin.
  • Improves a dull complexion and creates a healthier glow.
  • Enhances skin health by increasing cell turnover.

Best for

Best for combination, dry, normal and oily skin types.

May suit sensitive skin types, however gradually introduce this cream into your skin care routine.

Not suitable for use by anyone pregnant or breast-feeding.

For sensitive and rosacea skin, you may prefer the Alpha-H Vitamin B with Copper Tripeptide, Bloc Boost Your Youth, Medik8 Liquid Peptides or Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides. Peptides can be as effective as Retinol without the dryness and irritation. And Copper Peptide has been shown in clinical studies to build more collagen than Retinol.

Warning: Do not use Retinol or other retinoids if pregnant or breast-feeding.

Perfect pairs

For the best anti-ageing results, use Retinol at night and an antioxidant serum in the morning to protect the skin against free radical damage and support skin repair. Also incorporate some exfoliation 1-2 times a week to speed skin cell turnover, reduce the appearance of pores and brighten the complexion.

Good to know

Free of essential oils, fragrance or essential oils.

Not tested on animals and suitable for vegans.

This cream is one of BioBare’s top-sellers, along with its Vitamin C B E & Ferulic serum.

Stock availability of this product is limited and it often sells out. You also may like the Medik8 Night Ritual Vitamin A or the Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinoid Night Oil,

For a more potent Retinol, with only one conversion step to Retinoic Acid, we recommend Medik8 Crystal Retinal 3Medik8 Crystal Retinal 6 or Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10.

BioBare Retinol Cream Review

The only retinol cream I have used that doesn’t burn or itch! It makes my skin smooth and, unlike most retinol creams, it doesn’t dry my skin; it actually glows. I have tried many creams and will be staying with this one.
