Well-priced retinol

Have been using the Ordinary retinols for several years and they are great products - not irritating and very affordable.

No difference yet

I have only been using this for a couple of weeks and haven’t seen a difference yet. But it feels nice on the skin and doesn’t seem to irritate.

Greasy. Not good

The Ordinary make a better retinoid serum (granactive emulsion) this squalene version has a terrible texture. Honestly I bought this by mistake thinking it was the other one but used it up anyway. Won't be repurchasing.

Not the best Retinoid serum by The Ordinary

I bought this by mistake as I thought it was the Granactive Retinoid EMULSION which is a better product in my opinion. This squalene version is oily and doesn't fit well with the rest of my skincare routine. I don't notice any improvement when using this one compared to the Emulsion version by The Ordinary which also felt much nicer to use.

Gentle retinol

Great for beginner users of retinol. Made my skin feel hydrated and soft and never gave me peeling or redness.

Love this

Love this, but prefer the retinol without the squalene. I would be happy to use either for the rest of my life

Second bottle

I like this retinol serum as it is hydrating as well. Only the smell is a minus.

This is my second bottle. I like the oily texture during cold winter months. I think it is not a miracle worker but I think for this price it is nice product that at least leaves my skin looking more even.
