    • Description

      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 2% 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, including redness and flaking. It still makes the skin more sensitive to UV radiation, however, so thorough protection is recommended.

    • How to use

      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.

    The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane

    The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane Reviews

    Great anti-ageing
    I have been using this for a couple of months, still have quite a lot in the bottle and it definitely is helping with my skin tone and texture. It feels firmer and people have commented that I look younger (am 54). I have sensitive combination skin and have had no irritation at all and less breakouts. I use it with niacinamide.
    Seriously?!
    I have never used a retinoid before so started with this in case it was a disaster. One week ago I began to mix it with the Rosehip Oil and pat both into my face at night - 3 drops of each mixed together - including my closed eyelids and under eyes. No joke: 2 days ago I still had hooded eyelids, as I have had all my life. In the last 2 days, my eyelids are no longer hooded but are now defined. Seriously. I'm actually quite shocked...in a really good way. BUY THIS.
    Like it
    Enjoy using it but really need to wait for it to sink into the skin as it creates an oily texture and can be quite a heavy feeling on the skin if you moisturise too soon after applying it.
    Just started using
    Only 3 stars as I have only just started using the product so haven't seen any difference yet and you need to give it a few weeks. However, the formula is great and not drying at all because it's an oil. Don't let this put you off though as it does massage in well and hasn't caused any spots.
    Would repurchase
    This is great for my sensitive skin, I started out using it every other night for about two weeks and I've been using it nightly for about a month now. It doesn't irritate my skin at all and definitely has improved overall texture and hydration levels. Hard to say how much it really helps with fine lines because I don't have noticeable ones yet, but I'm more than happy with what it does for its price.
    Love it
    I tried many products from the ordinary and so far this is my favourite. I’m relatively new to vitamin A products, I tried 1% retinol a while ago, it was very drying and my skin started to peel it so I stopped and never considered using any similar product again, the ordinary product was appealing to me since it’s not drying formula, so I wanted to give it a chance. I have been using it for three months, first I started to apply it three times a week and now I use it on daily basis, it’s not drying and not irritating at all, my skin feels nice and it helped with my breakout and made my skin smoother and more hydrated , I guess I can switch to stronger retinoids when I run out to notice more difference, definitely worth checking out, totally recommend.
    Granative rethinoid
    Amazing product. My skin looks so much better. I really recommend trying.
    Wouldn't be without this
    I agree with previous reviews - have been using this for over a year now. I am an elderly lady and the number of compliments I've received since I started using it is amazing - often from total strangers! Good the ego as well as your skin. I only need it about three times a week and moved up to the 5% version some weeks ago. Yes, it can take a while to sink in but worth the wait and also it's best to let everything else you may have used to sink in before using it or will pill. I'm a fan of The Ordinary generally and use their products daily in one form or another. This is one of their best and the other is the EUK134m - a powerful antioxidant.
    You can see a difference
    Immediately after using it for couple of days the change was visible, my skin looks so much better and has a even tone. I have combination/ oily skin and sometimes get break outs but this did wonders for my skin, it cleared it. Wrinkles aren't my number one concern but there have been changes in crows feet as well, they are less visible. I put it on at night and before any other cream and can't say enough good things about it.
    I like it
    I've been using this now a few weeks. I like it. Sometimes I'm not in the mood for the oiliness of squalane so I think i will also purchase the emulsion but otherwise it leaves my skin soft and it is a good product.
    Great product
    I have been using this product for 3 weeks now and have built up to using it nightly. There has been no irritation, my dry winter forehead is now nice and soft. Difficult to tell if the fine lines are any better but my skin does look a lot more flawless when I put my make up on! The squalene does make it greasy and it takes a good half an hour to absorb into the skin but for my dry skin it’s perfect and my skin feels lovely when I wake up in the morning so for me, that’s a plus. Going to try the 5% next.
