The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Serum 2% in Squalane 30ml

This high-strength, low-irritation serum has been proven to soften fines lines, improve pigment problems and revitalise skin. A water-free solution, this stars a 2% concentration of advanced retinoid active ‘Granactive Retinoid’, which has been shown to defy ageing without any of the irritation commonly caused by retinol use. This is The Ordinary’s moderate strength formulation, for a higher version, try {Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane}.

Keen to improve your skin with the age-defying prowess of a retinoid but put off by the potential side effects? The Ordinary’s Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane could be the solution – a high strength, zero-to-low irritation serum that’s been proven to soften fine lines, improve pigmentation problems and revitalise skin, causing it to look fresher and more youthful. ‘Granactive Retinoid’ is a next-generation retinoid active technology, which can not only achieve better anti-ageing results than traditional retinol but do so without the irritation commonly associated with it, including redness and flaking. It still makes the skin more sensitive to UV radiation, however, so thorough protection is recommended.

Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected solar exposure. Store in a cool, dry place.

Caution: Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Sun protection is particularly important when using retinoids. This product must not be used in conjunction with other retinoids including retinol or retinoic acid. This product is not a treatment for acne. Acne-prone skin may experience a temporary increase in acne during the first few weeks of using any form of retinoid including those used in this formulation.

Note: When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products containing retinoids such as formulations with Granactive Retinoid or Retinol.

Saving Grace

This product is absolutely amazing. At first I was sceptical about using an oil since I have oily skin, however, the solution worked perfectly with my skin. It mainly helped to improve skin texture and dry patches. Would definitely recommend!

Love

I have been using it for a few months now as part of my night time routine after The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 5% + HA. It has considerably improved the texture of my skin as well as my acne scars. It does not dry out my skin and my breaks outs have stopped. Nothing has worked the way these two products have!!!!

Little effect

I had big hopes for this retinoid 2% but sadly after almost three bottles I see no difference. Not impressed, I'm afraid.

After 1 month

My skin tone has become much more even and I’ve had no irritation. Will definitely upgrade to the 5% when this bottle runs out.

Loving it!

I love this product, been using it for a month (twice a week), no irritation & my skin looks healthier, plump & hydrated. After I finish this bottle, I’ll try the 0.5% Retinol in Squalene. I have mature & normal to dry skin.

Amazing

Myself (24) and my mum (54) have now been using this every night and it’s great! My mums neck lines and crows feet almost disappeared and my odd line has gone! Just remember to use SPF while using Retionals as it leaves your skin more susceptible.

Good against rosacea!

I have dry skin and have been suffering from rosacea for several years now. At this writing, I've been using this every night for a week (3 drops of this, mixed with 3 drops of Marula oil), and already my skin is smoother than it has been in years. There's still redness (although it's definitely less red than it was a week ago), but the bumps are almost totally GONE! I'm so impressed! I just had to come here and make a review, because I'm so happy to have found this!

Love love love this!

I have hormonal acne and gloopy sebum causing white and blackheads and I've been using this serum at night following my Glycolic acid 7% toner and my skin has been glowing like an angel in only 3 days of using! I love how hydrated, smooth and even this makes my skin feel! My pores have also been almost completely shrunk and invisible. I only have 1 little breakout and I did expect it but the key seems to be patience. My dermatologist said "it will get a bit worse before it gets significantly better" in a week or two so right now all I'm doing is keeping my hands off my face as much as I can. Highly recommend this.
