Fabulous!

As always, The Ordinary products are fantastic. I used to use Retinoid emulsion and recently switched to the one in Squalane. It is amazing and I guess since my skin's so dry, it just fits in beautifully. My skin has changed so much for the better!

Won't order again

3

Thought I'd try this as I presumed it must be good as it was always out of stock when I tried to order before. However, I won't bother again as its much too oily. Only been using for a couple of weeks so not sure if it is having any effect.

Super serum

This is higher strength retinol and it's the only one that dries out my skin if I introduce it too quickly. When this happens the skin can look old dehydrated and fatigued, the opposite of what we want. So, always start off every other day, and although it's very fluid only use 2/3 drops. Even longer-term I struggle to use this daily. 5 times a week max. But, the results as with all the retinol here are wonderful, but you need to use it accordingly.

Great but...

This is a good product however just wish it wasn’t so oily and was a lotion rather than in squalene.

Best I've tried so far (and that's a lot)

5

I was prepared for skin-reactions due to the high percentage of retinol, but I've had none whatsoever. I have used a milder retinol some time ago (but not during the last three months), so maybe that's why. My opinion is that The Ordinary's granactive retinol is really the best. I used a milder one last spring and summer, and my husband one day looked at me and asked "what have you done with your face? Your skin looks marvellous!" - and you know after almost 30 years together one must really make big changes to get your not so much talkative partner to notice anything. So this higher percentage during my covid-quarantine I know has been a success for my skin. I really recommend you try it.

Not really a fan

This is too oily for my skin and for the humid weather I'm in.
