The Ordinary Retinol Serum 1% in Squalane 30ml

This highly stable, water-free, high strength age-defying solution features 1% 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 to allow skin to build up tolerance.

Water- and silicone-free, The Ordinary’s Retinol 1% 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 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.

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.

Great product!

I have been using this every night for the last 6 weeks and I'm only half way through the bottle. Perseverance is key for the first month or so as your skin will be sore and peel however, I now have baby soft skin that has never been in such good condition before! I have always suffered with dry patches but they are gone and blemishes and break outs seem to clear up quicker. I won't be without this product now!

Brill product

So pleased with this product. I have been using retinol for years and paid a lot more for it too. Great to pay such a reasonable price for something that works for me. Your skin will peel and appear red at first but persevere and your skin will settle down eventually and you will see results. Also be aware that you must keep out of the sun when using retinol.

Nothing Special

It's OK but I don't really like that terrible greasy feeling when I apply it on my face and afterwards, I have been using it for a month or so but I haven't noticed any improvement. In fact, I have noticed nothing. So I'll stick tom the more expensive after finishing this product.

The Ordinary

I cannot believe the trans-formative properties of The Ordinary Products. There is nothing "Ordinary" about these products. I first read about them in a magazine, then did some research on which products would suit me best. I looked on Beauty Bay, Amazon and Cult Beauty. Cult Beauty stocked all the products at the most competitive price. My skin has never looked so good. As recommended I used Zinc, Niacinamide and Salicylic Acid in the morning, and the Retinal in the evening. Within 3 days my skin had improved immensely. The redness had gone, the pimples were massively reduced and my skin had a healthy glow. It hadn't had a youthful glow for a long time. I'm ever so grateful to these products and have already recommended not only the products, but Cult Beauty to all my friends. Many have commented on the transformation of my skin and asked my secret. The Ordinary should be called The Extra Ordinary!

Granactive retinoid

I used the above product for 2 months, every other day at first and then daily at night. It has left me with very red, swollen and dry lips and a very swollen and discoloured eye. I have had this now for 3 weeks with no improvement.

This is a brilliant product

OF COURSE, this can make your skin peel. This is a retinol, for crying out loud! What did you expect? It's meant to promote skin turnover, therefore minimising pigmentation and sun damage and showing the younger and juicier cells. It also promotes collagen production, minimising fine lines, making the skin look plumper and firmer. Also, this ingredient, at this concentration, for this price is an absolute bargain. BUT before any of this happens you may have the aforementioned peeling and irritation. This is a very high concentration of a very strong ingredient. In order to avoid or reduce those side effects, you have to build your way up. Start with 0.2 once a week AT NIGHT followed by an emollient cream to prevent dryness and ALWAYS use SPF in the morning. See how your skin reacts to that. If it's still strong, try every two weeks or less product or use the cream first until your skin adapts. If everything goes fine, try moving up to 0.5, once the previous bottle runs out. And repeat the same procedure until you can use 1%.

Brilliant retinol with 1% pure retinol

This is a product that works. Tried and proven retinol. Causes no irritation I use it on my face, neck and decolletage with no irritation what so ever. People saying it irritated them or made them peel is because they hadn't accustomed their skin to retinoids. Go slowly and build up usage. I do prefer a certain outspoken woman's clinical retinol but ONLY because it's not oily like this one. As this is in squalane it's a bit oily till it all soaks in, but it works and the price is fab. My whole face is firmer especially the jawline. My prominent number 11 lines are refining and pores are clear so appear smaller.

One of the better retinols on the market

One of the better retinols on the market and the price is excellent. If you are not used to retinol then go slowly to accustom your skin. It's great and the only bad reviews are mainly because the user isn't used to active ingredients,

Impressive results

Been using about 4 drops and applying nightly before cream for around two months and I'm starting to see the benefits. I stupidly ignored all recommendations and dived in (although my application is probably diluted by using after daily application of a lightweight, watery sheet mask) and I've not seen any trouble with peeling although the area on top of my cheekbones is a tad more sensitive. Smoother texture, more even tone and reduce fine lines already. Will be stocking up again!
