No7 launches Pure Retinol Collection to give fine lines and wrinkles the heave-ho

21st October 2021 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

No7 continually smashes it out of the park with its research and development of science-led skincare. Its No7 Retinol Serum from Boots garnered the largest waitlist in the history of the brand when it launched last year and now it’s back with its Pure Retinol Collection.

This collection includes the original No7 Retinol Serum alongside the No7 Pure Retinol Eye Cream, No7 Pure Retinol Night Repair Cream and the No7 Pure Retinol Hand Cream.

Below we’ve explained more about the collection, including the key ingredients, and how you can save £135 by buying the collection in a bundle.

No7 Pure Retinol Collection

The products in the No7 Pure Retinol collection are designed to be used in conjunction with one another.

In fact, Boots recommends the only way you’ll get the best results from any of these products is to buy them all. We’re, of course, cynical of this because Boots obviously wants you to spend your money with them, rather than using any of these products along rival skincare products but we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt in this instance.

There are four products in total, in the No7 Pure Retinol Collection. These include:

  • No7 Retinol Complex Night Concentrate: The No7 Retinol Serum Boots sells for £34.95 promises 10 anti-ageing benefits (although the specifics of these aren’t entirely clear)
  • No7 Pure Retinol Eye Cream: This eye cream costs £24.95 and promises to reduce the appearance of eye bags and get rid of fine lines and dark circles
  • No7 Pure Retinol Night Repair Cream: This night repair cream costs £34.95 and promises to improve seven key signs of ageing on the face and neck including fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, dark spots and pigmentation
  • No7 Pure Retinol Hand Cream: This hand cream targets the same signs of ageing as the night repair cream and costs £14.95.

You can buy each of these products separately, or as a bundle.

  • Retinol Starter Kit: For £45, the Retinol Starter Kit comes with No7 Retinol Serum, Eye Cream and Night Repair Cream (worth £94.85 when bought individually)
  • Retinol Total Kit: For £65, the Retinol Total Kit comes with the No7 Retinol Serum, Eye Cream, Night Repair Cream, Hand Cream and the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream (worth £134.75 when bought individually)

As Dr Mike Bell, Head of Science Research at Walgreens Boots Alliance said at the time of launch: “Fifteen years of scientific research informed the new Pure Retinol range, and I couldn’t be prouder of the results. Our Night Cream and Eye Cream harness the power of pure retinol – balanced by No7’s Retinol Soother and Retinol Optimizer technologies – to help users achieve their specific skin goals, while minimizing irritation.

“The system is powered by a slow-release oil encapsulation technology, that preserves the retinol potency as well as ensuring controlled delivery into the skin, supported by extra nourishing ingredients like ceramides, shea butter and pro-vitamin B5.”

Retinol Collection ingredients

Each of the products in the No7 Pure Retinol Collection contains a similar combination of ingredients. These include

  • Pure Retinol: Boots claims this is its “most effective, targeted and proven form of retinol” and it has previously explained that, through scientific research with the University of Manchester, Boots’ 0.3% retinol delivers “virtually the same age-defying benefits as a higher concentration retinol but with minimum irritation”
  • Shea Butter and Bisabolol: These two product act as “retinol soothers,” according to No7 and they are both included to leave the skin feeling hydrated and smooth
  • Matrixyl 3000 Plus: We first came across this age-defying complex in our Charlotte Tilbury Serum review and it has since appeared in an increasing number of anti-ageing products, including the No7 Pure Retinol Collection. In summary, it’s what’s known as synthetic peptide that can stimulate collagen production and leave skin looking plumper
