The Inkey List Targeted Serums

You might be covered with cleansing, exfoliating and hydration but what else is available to you from The Inkey List if you have other skincare concerns?

I’m glad you asked! These ‘other’ serums are targeted solutions for signs of aging, redness and antioxidant protection.

Scroll to find the best one for you!


INCI: Water (Aqua / Eau), Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Propanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Disodium Edta, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Carbomer, Hyaluronic Acid, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminobutyroyl Hydroxythreonine, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminohydroxybutyrate, Polysorbate 20, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1

Collagen Booster might sound like a stretch but that is exactly what this serum does, it is a hydrating serum that uses peptides to support the skins natural collagen function whilst increasing smoothness.

Use this if you think your skin needs a gentle nudge to behave better. If you know, you know.


INCI:Water (Aqua / Eau), Butylene Glycol, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/So Phospholipids Dium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Squalane, Lecithin, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Extract, Carbomer, Polysorbate 60, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ubiquinone, Disodium Edta, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycolipids, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterol, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminobutyroyl Hydroxythreonine, Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminohydroxybutyrate, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Hyaluronic Acid, Phenoxyethanol

This Q10 serum is one of the most severely underrated products the brand makes. It’s one of my favourites because I am sensitised by vitamin C and prefer using an alternative antioxidant, which is exactly what this is.

Think of it like a hydrating serum with added antioxidant protection to help against the impact of pollution and protect from free radicals, keeping skin healthier for longer.


INCI: Water (Aqua/ Eau), Niacinamide, Glycerin, Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Squalane, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Hyaluronic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Phospholipids, Xanthan Gum, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Allantoin, Disodium Edta, Polysorbate 60, Panthenol, Glycolipids, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterol, Disodium Phosphate, Citric Acid, Sodium Phosphate.

The Niacinamide Serum from The Inkey List is a lightweight milky serum which can be used AM or PM. Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is a super ingredient because it *clears throat*… reduces redness and inflammation, enhances skin clarity, minimises the appearance of pores and repairs barrier function. Yes, we all need it.

I like using it after hyaluronic acid in the morning and retinol in the evening.

Hepta Peptide

INCI: Aqua (Water), Polysilicone-11, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Caproyl Prolinate, Laureth-12, Benzyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Squalane, Ethylhexylglycerin, Carnosine, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Polysorbate 60, Dehydroacetic Acid, Citric Acid, Heptapeptide-7, Lecithin, Potassium Sorbate, Propanediol, Sodium Benzoate, Xanthan Gum, Sorbitan Isostearate.

Hepta Peptide was released at the same time as Polyglutamic Acid Serum  and Multi Biotic Moisturiser which for me, signified an elevation in formulas from the Inkey List, to push the boundaries of how effective skincare at an accessible pricepoint could be beyond the usual single actives.

Hepta Peptide is a serum that uses peptides and amino acids in a silicone base to encourage firmer, plumper and hydrated skin. These ingredients are recognised by the skin and begin to support in stimulating healthy collagen production. Though they are limited to what they can achieve alone if you use this in the morning and a retinol in the evening, your skin will be better for it.

Use Hepta Peptide if you are concerned about firmness in your skin and want immediately visible and long term benefits.
