Think you can tell the difference between your retinol and your retinals? Test your skincare knowledge with our nifty quiz!

Skincare is one of beauty's most riveting avenues—especially if you're a scientist. Behind the marketing, there is a complex chemistry lab hard at work: The product formulators and chemists working at your favourite beauty brands are the masterminds behind your luminous glow and your ultra-hydrated skin barrier. For every Vitamin C-rich cream and AHA cocktail serum is a meticulous and comprehensive list of ingredients. 

Now, if you're a skincare addict like us, you'll know that there's a new 'super-ingredient' every other month, and not all ingredients play well together. The real question is: Do you know what's in your products in the first place?
