The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion 30ml

Supercharged with a high concentration of two ‘next generation retinoids’ (more effective than standard retinoids), this lightweight serum is the perfect antidote to common signs of ageing. Heroically hardworking – yet astonishingly gentle – this targets everything from fine lines and wrinkles to uneven skin tone, to prolong your skin's youthful 'bounce' and radiance.

To supercharge this serum with advanced anti-ageing ability, The Ordinary includes a high concentration of two ‘next generation’ retinoids - hydroxypinacolone reinoate and pure retinol, proven to be more effective than standard retinol formulations. Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion is a lightweight, milky-textured serum that works hard to target visible signs of ageing, while remaining gentle enough to avoid the irritation caused by some retinoid products. Lost elasticity, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone are all easy targets for this superlative skin saviour.

Apply a few drops to face in the evening as part of your skin care regimen. Take care not to stray too near to the delicate eye area if you have sensitive eyes - and do not use with other retinoid treatments. Use sun protection in the morning.

It's worth noting that when pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products containing retinoids such as formulations with Granactive Retinoid or Retinol.

Amazing with acne

I am using this product for 2 months. I can use it in two different ways. The first way is applying the 3 drops into my hands and apply it to my face. The second way I use it as a spot treatment by applying dots over my acne. The downside is a bit drying so make sure to use a good moisturizer after applying it AND DON"T USE ANY EXFOLIATER WHILE USING IT.

Amazing on my skin!

My fine lines have definitely improved. Feels great on my skin, easily & quickly absorbed. Doesn’t irritate or dry my already dry & sensitive 40yr old skin

More than 5 Stars!

I have been using this product for about 2 months now and I am very happy to say..... it works! I previously tried a 1% retinol cream product by a high end Dr.'s brand, and I started peeling after a few days but I kept using the product and my skin started to show redness and was too sensitive to continue. Ever since I stopped using that product, I had not used any retinol type product due to my sensitivity, but I decided to give this a try since I had never tried retinoid and chose the 2% as it was the lowest concentration The result- I have no redness, no peeling, no reaction at all, and my skin was visibly smoother in about 3 to 4 weeks. Not only is it just myself noticing the difference, I now get a lot of compliments on my skin from people around, most recently from a BA at a department store make up counter when she took my make up off and saw my bare skin :) And one bottle lasts you a while- I'm still on my first bottle after 2 months (I use 2 drops every night), and the price point is very affordable! ! If you're considering trying this, I highly recommend!

It works

I'm on my second bottle and I love it. It works perfectly and even friends have noticed the change in my skin. There are very few products that don't bring me out in spots. Oils and most things with perfume are a no go. This product is simple and effective.

Works wonders

I started using this a few months ago after trying another Retinoid which stripped my skin leaving it red and dry. This one is far more gentle but equally effective and my skin has completely cleared up and I haven't had any breakouts in the last month. I use after Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser and it works like magic.

Very, very good

The only downside of this product is not being able to use it at AM. Instantly calms my redness after application, waking up in the morning with a very healthy looking skin. Was my first attempt at using retinoids/retinol and not disappointed. Definitely recommend.

The Thing That Treated My Acne

I have an oily-acne prone skin and lately I have found myself trying different products because the old skin care that I have used does not work anymore. I have tried A LOT of things but only this retinoid in emulsion fixed my acne problems together with a mild facial wash (innis free bija oil with salicylic acid) and in the morning I use the ordinary vitamin c serum. Till now I have pimple scars but that's just it, no more new acne.
