Can I combine Flawless Nightly Serum with other actives such as AHAs or BHAs?
We would not advise this when starting to use Flawless Nightly Serum. Watch our Retinoid Revelation Series for more guidance.
Can I use Flawless Nightly Serum if I have dry or sensitive skin?
All Actives should be used with care if you have dry or sensitive skin. Watch Dr Sam's Retinoid Revelation Series for tips on getting started.
Can I use Flawless Nightly Serum during summer/warmer months?
Yes, provided you observe good sun protection behaviour. Watch Dr Sam’s video on retinoid use in summer here.
Can I use Flawless Nightly Serum around my eyes and lips?
No, avoid putting this product around the delicate eye area or on your lips. Try applying a barrier layer of moisturiser around the eyes (“moisturiser goggles”) and lip balm on lips for extra protection before applying Flawless Nightly Serum.
Will I experience irritation using Flawless Nightly Serum?
All Actives may require an adjustment period, especially if you have sensitive skin. The key is to start using smaller amounts less often and build gradually. For guidance, watch our Retinoid Revelation series. If you do experience irritation (redness, flaking, dryness) take a break and use our tips on managing Retinoids at the beginning of your journey to reduce the intensity. Discontinue if irritation persists.
How long until I start seeing results?
This will vary on your skin type, watch Dr Sam’s Retinoid Revelation series for guidance.
Is Flawless Nightly Serum or Flawless Nightly Pro Serum right for me?
If you're new to retinol, retinaldehyde or retinyl retinoate, and do not have at least 6 weeks of tolerance then we recommend starting with Flawless Nightly Serum. However, if your skin has become tolerant to a less potent retinoid such as Flawless Nightly Serum but you have not yet reached your goals, it’s worth considering trading to a higher strength such as Flawless Nightly Pro.
Is it safe to use Flawless Nightly Serum while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Flawless Nightly Serum is not suitable for use during pregnancy, however all Dr Sam's products are safe to use while breastfeeding.
Am I safe to have facial waxing while using Flawless Nightly Serum?
Will Flawless Nightly Serum thin my skin?
No. Retinoids actually thicken the skin’s epidermis and dermis, hence their benefits in the signs of premature ageing.

How To Use
We want to remove the guesswork when it comes to using Actives. So watch our video demonstrating how to get the most out of your Nightly Serum. Achieving that Grown-Up Glow is easy.
- After cleansing, pat skin gently dry. Protect delicate areas - apply moisturiser around the eyes (“moisturiser goggles”) and protect lips with a proper layer of lip balm.
- Apply Flawless Nightly Serum - start off with a small amount (½ a pump), applying every other day using the #13dottechnique to apply evenly over the face.
- Massage until fully absorbed. Apply moisturiser on top once fully absorbed if needed.
- Store in a cool, dark place. We recommend a slow increase in use after 2-4 weeks, to daily use. And as skin becomes more tolerant you can try using a full pump. Remember - a skin cycle is 6 weeks, so the benefits of using Actives takes time to appear. We recommend watching our Retinoid Revelations series to get the full picture and commence with confidence!
It’s a serum for people confused by serums. I wanted to make using Actives easy so I packed maximum action into one easy-to-apply layer you can use at night. It’s like 4 serums in one without the hassle of layering!
