The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Serum 5% in Squalane 30ml

This high-strength, low-irritation serum has been proven to soften fines lines, improve pigment problems and revitalise skin. A water-free solution, this stars a 5% concentration of advanced retinoid active ‘Granactive Retinoid’, which has been shown to defy ageing without any of the irritation commonly caused by retinol use. This is The Ordinary’s higher strength formulation, for a more moderate version, try {Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane}.

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.

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.

Brilliant

Hardworking product with a gentle and luxurious feel. I’m impressed and absolutely delighted… It’s an 11 out of 10 for me.  At last ~ my love has come along and it’s in a pipette!

Very reasonably priced, and effective.

This has improved the quality of my skin, and my only slight criticism is that the squalene is oily.

Do NOT get near your eyes

I do love this product for what it does for my skin but they aren't kidding when they say not to get it near your eyes! The problem is, if you apply at night as recommended it's difficult for it to not end up near your eyes via your pillow. I got multiple really stubborn eyelid cysts from applying it at night. I've started applying it in the morning from nose downwards only.

It's ok

I find this feeling quite oily on my skin and doesn't seem to absorb that well on my skin unlike my The Inkey List one that seems to work better for me. Not raving about this and may find a different retinol.

Amazing

Can rave about the disciple products I've bought enough. Suffered with acne for over 20 years had a flare up recently and finding as I'm getting older that it takes longer to clear and heal. Thought I'd try a few disciple products and results are fab. Wish I could post my before and after pictures to show the results

Remarkable

Three people have commented on how good my skin looks in the last month. I have never had good skin so can only put it down to this product. Pores much reduced in appearance, skin feels soft and smooth on waking after night time use.

Amazing

I don't often write reviews but I always read them when searching for skincare products. I've long suffered from oily skin, large pores and more recently some fine lines around my mouth. I've tried so many products over the years that promise to minimise pores or reduce wrinkles but I've never really seen results. I've been using this for about 5 months and WOW - there is a noticable difference to my skin. It is soooo much smoother and my pores have definitely reduced in size, and the lines around my mouth have actually disappeared. A good retinol product and spf is all you need!
