A powerhouse form of vitamin A housed in soothing squalane, the Retinol Serum 0.5% in Squalane (30ml) encourages cell turnover, revealing healthier, softer skin.

This stellar serum works hard to minimise the look of fine lines, dark spots and blemishes, while improving skin texture and tone... and we'd be happy with that, but there's more. Supported by squalane (a moisturising ingredient naturally found in your skin) you can expect your complexion to appear smooth and hydrated, with any dryness that can come with retinol use being reduced. We've got heart eyes just thinking about it...

Apply a small amount to the face in the evening, after water serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other retinoid treatments and avoid unprotected sun exposure. Store in a cool, dry place.

The Ordinary has firmly cemented itself as a leader in science-backed skin care. Taking the guesswork out of building a regime, it ditches unnecessary, filler ingredients for familiar, hard-working actives that deliver promising results. And the Retinol Serum 0.5% in Squalane (30ml) is a highly stable, high-strength serum featuring 0.5% pure retinol.

Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Retinol, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, BHT.

    I think you can find a better one, but if you're just starting out and you have a budget, then it's fine

    Not for acne prone skin

    I so wanted to love this product and used it for at least 6 months in the hopes it was just a retinol purge. But the squalane in this product is too intense and leaves my skin super oily. After I stopped using this product I saw a significant decrease in clogged pores.
