The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Serum 5% 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 5% 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 higher strength formulation, for a more moderate version, try {Granactive Retinoid 2% 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 5% 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 (it often causes 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.

Surprised how good this is.

Amazing product for the price. Used to pay a fortune for a very well known night serum, well not any more, this is just as good. My skin glows, and I'm convinced is has helped with lines/firmness. I haven't had any irritation/break outs and I don't mind the oily texture.

I really like it!

First I tried Granactive Retiniod 2% Emulsion, then I decided to try in Squalane and I can say both really helped my skin!

Feel luxe

Despite being retinol, this is somewhat soothing, especially for dryer skin types. I am acne prone and this hasn’t given me any breakouts at all. I feel my skin looks slightly brighter with this but after 3 uses it’s too soon to see any real results.

Very oily

I've just bought the 5% retinol and after reading the reviews I thought I'd give it a try... I find that it's very oily/greasy and after 2 hours it didn't seem to absorb into my skin, it just sat on top leaving me wondering if there is any way I could make it absorb?? I currently used the 2% and found it to absorbs right away, I just wish it was the same consistency as their 2%. Quite disappointed, not sure if I'd purchase again because of this.

Best retinoid ever!

I have been using tretinoin for years; first the low strength, then the high... I have been struggling with dryness for years. Since using Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane for the past two weeks, I've found it to be high strength with little to no irritation. My skin looks beautiful and I will continue to use it for the rest of my life. Best product ever!

Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane

I started off using Retinol 0.2% in Squalane for a couple of weeks and then moved on to Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane and I'm loving it! It's been a long long time since my skin looked this good. It's clearer, firmer and lines/wrinkles have definitely reduced. I'm 65 years old and will be using The Ordinary products from now on.

I like

I can see the difference in my skin after 6 months of use. It softens the lines of expression and is not an aggressive product.

It works!

I have dark patches on my face and I have seen a difference after using it a month. I use it twice a week as it makes my face itch if I use it more. I will build up to everyday slowly.
