    • 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 5% 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 (it often causes 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.

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

    The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane

    The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane Reviews

    Good for beginners
    I've used a fair amount of both prescription and over-the-counter retinol/ retinoids, some I've liked (Sunday Riley's Luna has a terrible price tag, but is much more effective than this) and others less so. This one's interesting in the sense that I have experienced *zero* irritation, but for me, it seems to come at the price of not doing much. The fine lines that my previous products kept at bay returned once I started using this. I think it's a decent introductory vit A product, but if you've dabbled in the field before, I'd give it a pass.
    Great introduction to retinols
    This is an amazing introduction to retinol for more mature skins, where you can actually see a difference. Please use every second or third night, as it is potent. It can be used combined with your acids. Cannot praise this enough, despite being underwhelmed by almost all other Ordinary products (I have tried them all, not kidding), Matrixyl being the other stellar one.
    Original retinol 5%
    This is the best product I have come across. It is my first retinol cream and at 5% I have had no reaction to it. My skin has never been this good. It has a healthy glow and make's my skin feel silky and I have had no dryness. Absolutely love it.
    Brilliant potion
    This is the most amazing stuff. Has made a massive difference to skin texture and really improved the skin on my neck. Can't do without it now. It's amazing.
    Skin smoother
    I (42) have been using this product for a week, and my skin is looking and feeling very smooth and even - so good, in fact, that I have decided to go make-up-free today. My skin is used to glycolic acid peelings, so all the retinol did was give me a warm glow, no irritation. At the moment I have stopped all other peelings because I feel the retinol is doing such a fine job I don´t need more. Very happy, this product is here to stay.
    Lovley way to use retinoid
    Lov this the ordinary retinoid 5 in squalane product. Never had any reaction. Even with though my skin is prone to eczema. Lov it. Use it at night. Feels like a night oil and leaves my skin super soft.
