This is The Ordinary’s higher strength formulation, for a more moderate version, try {Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane}.

    • 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

    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.
    Be careful with this
    So after hearing all the hype about retinols and finding the brand "The Ordinary" I decided to try this out! (With such a brilliant price tag, it is not going to break the bank trying it). I, unfortunately, cannot recommend this product as I have not been having past (and frankly do not want to get past) the "purge" stage. After using this for a few weeks, I had a massive breakout and using the trusty internet found out that if you are prone to breakouts retinol will make your skin "purge” (basically a suuuuper breakout). If you persist (for up to three months) this purge will complete and you will have the best skin ever of your life…..I could not do it. I have read other articles that say if you use retinols carefully at a low % and gradually you can avoid this, so as this one is 5% (quite a high %), then maybe use a lower % first (which I am going to try). So a warning to all those prone to breakouts…research first and use this product carefully!
    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.
