Not my jam

2

I have combination skin and had never used a retinol product before. The consistency of this was a little greasy but it does soak in and leaves my skin feeling hydrated immediately after application. HOWEVER, I noticed that I was breaking out all of a sudden and couldn't figure why. After skipping this product from my nightly routine for just 3 days I am again blemish-free, and I don't think I will be happy to continue using it as I also didn't notice any of the positive effects I was expecting from a retinol product. I would switch to the emulsion but I would like to go up in retinol strength and The Ordinary do not do a higher strength in the emulsion yet.

Never again

1

I've used up 2/3 of the bottle in a little more than a month and have seen no improvements. The product never sinks in and leaves my skin greasy. Also, it looks like I tend to break out more often cause once I stop using this for a few days, my skin clears out. In a nutshell, it might work for dry skin but oily/normal skin types had better stay away from the product.

Not what i expected

Granactive retinoid too low for my thick skin with oily T-zone. But here is gentle and nice squalane for beautiful even skin. I give 4 stars for this.

The only retinoid for Sun sensitive skin

4

I have tried many other retinol products before including the ordinary’s retinol everything else except this Granactive Retinoid 2% made my pigmented skin more sun sensitive. Since it's in Squalane, it doesn’t dry out the skin and makes skin soft and supple.

Great stuff!

I have a pretty simple nighttime routine - I wash or exfoliate and then moisturise, lately using this product. I have combination skin, and this seems to balance it out nicely during both dry and humid seasons. This isn’t water-based but also isn’t oily, spreads well and leaves quite a nice little glow in the morning. I am the late twenties with the beginnings of a few wrinkles and can see that the lines around my eyes and forehead are slightly smoother after use. I’ve tried a few products, including this brand and this particular one is the only one that I have seen any difference with so far. Definitely a great value product ☺️

LOVE

That is a product that really works! I am amazed by how my skin looks in the morning. I appy it before sleep and my skin is really smooth in the morning and very hydrated. It may cause breakouts when you use it the first couple of times because it is removing all the impurities and dead skin cells. I would also recommend you use this once every 2 weeks since it dries your skin out few days after using it, and you can really see your old skin cells pealing away! But it does wonders and removes skin texture unlike anything I have ever tried!
