The Ordinary Retinol Serum 0.2% in Squalane 30ml

This highly stable, water-free, high strength age-defying solution features 0.2% pure retinol. This special form of vitamin A has been proven to minimise fine lines, improve pigment problems, revitalise skin and make its overall appearance fresher and more youthful. As retinol can cause irritation, The Ordinary recommends beginning your regimen with lower concentrations such as this to allow skin to build up tolerance.

Water- and silicone-free, The Ordinary’s Retinol 0.2% in Squalane features highly stable retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearance of ageing with impressive results. A powerhouse form of vitamin A, retinol encourages cell turnover, revealing healthier, softer skin while also tackling blemishes, dark spots and defying signs of ageing – including softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven tone. Retinol can cause significant irritation, including redness and peeling – but many feel that its significant effects counterbalance this; The Ordinary recommends building your skin’s tolerance to retinol with lower concentrations such as this to minimise discomfort.

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.

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

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.

Breaks me out

I really tried slowly getting used to this retinol for about 5 months, but it breaks my skin out terribly. I hoped it would be purging but my skin only got better when I stopped using it. And when I started again my skin got worse. I wouldn't recommend to those with sensitive skin.

Great for spot-prone skin!

I have been using this product a couple of times a week for a while now to help with my spots, and it's been great. I haven't used retinol before and I do have sensitive skin, so I started on the low concentration, but had no adverse reaction and so will be moving on to the higher concentration soon. The Ordinary's range is so worthwhile.

Good for initial skin improvement

I’ve recently been having some skin outbreaks and because I hadn’t used retinoids before, I decided to go with this low concentrate. I’ve definitely seen an improvement and had no irritation but on the flip side it is a bit greasy and I think I’ll have to up the dose to see better clearing of my skin. You can’t argue with the value though and I’ll definitely be trying more ordinary products!

Great

Leaves my skin super soft. It is a bit oily so allow some time to absorb before putting on your cream. No peeling since it has a low retinol concentration.

It's a good product, however, I prefer products not so greasy.

Wow!

Purchased this a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it, my skin has never felt so good, it didn't irritate my skin (which I was sceptical at first) my pores certainly look better and even the slight sun damage I have has faded so will be purchasing this again and then moving on to 0.5. Would recommend this product.
