    • Why it's Cult

      This highly stable, water-free, high strength age-defying solution features 0.2% pure retinol. This special form of vitamin A has been proven to minimise fine lines, improve pigment problems, revitalise skin and make its overall appearance fresher and more youthful. As retinol can cause irritation, The Ordinary recommends beginning your regimen with lower concentrations such as this to allow skin to build up tolerance. 

    • Description

      Water- and silicone-free, The Ordinary’s Retinol 0.2% in Squalane features highly stable retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearance of ageing with impressive results. A powerhouse form of vitamin A, retinol encourages cell turnover, revealing healthier, softer skin while also tackling blemishes, dark spots and defying signs of ageing – including softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven tone. Retinol can cause significant irritation, including redness and peeling – but many feel that its significant effects counterbalance this; The Ordinary recommends building your skin’s tolerance to retinol with lower concentrations such as this to minimise discomfort.

    • 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.

      Note: When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products containing retinoids such as formulations with Granactive Retinoid or Retinol.

      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.

    The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane

    The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane Reviews

    Helpful in acne/pimple control
    This is my first time using Retinol and wanting to be on the safer side, I has bought this since it has the least concentration. I have been using for a month at an alternating interval with ascorbyl glucoside (from The Ordinary too). It does not produce any tingling sensation or any mild reaction to my skin. I found that this is really wonderful as a spot treatment. I have been recently breaking out due to hormonal imbalance and this product has been a holy grail for immediately zapping my pimples away or at least reduce the inflammation on the skin. I would definitely buy it again but with a slightly higher concentration just to see if there is a difference on my skin
    Great retinol product
    Great product for beginners to retinol. Would recommend.
    Fabulous
    Love this, I've really noticed a difference in my skin and don't hesitate to leave the house without foundation anymore.
    Loovely product
    This product has been lovely, my skin loved this product from the get-go and i had no negative reaction to it at all. It gives my skin an overall youthful look and feel, my skin just seems healthier when using this product.
    Good for initial skin improvement
    I’ve recently been having some skin outbreaks and because I hadn’t used retinoids before, I decided to go with this low concentrate. I’ve definitely seen an improvement and had no irritation but on the flip side it is a bit greasy and I think I’ll have to up the dose to see better clearing of my skin. You can’t argue with the value though and I’ll definitely be trying more ordinary products!
    Good product
    It's a good product, however, I prefer products not so greasy.
    Well it moisurises...
    I've been using this nightly for 3 weeks. I'm late 30's have large pores and areas of pigmentation. It moisturises but doesn't seem to do anything else. No peeling or irritations, just greasy moisturiser. I'll try the 0.5% to see if this does anything, Wouldn't recommend.
    Slowly but surely...
    I was previously using the Granactive Retinoid 2% and didn't experience any irritation with it and decided to give this a go after my previous bottle finished. Pleased to say this hasn't irritated my skin and I'm gradually building up to daily use. My skin is not the best but since use it's been the best that it can be. I use this every other day and it's worked well. I'm not the biggest fan of squalene though (too greasy!) but for the price, you really can't complain!
    Wow-za
    Excellent results for my skin. Used this for the first time with a lot of trepidation as had never used a vitamin A product before. But there was no irritation or dryness or any problem, whatsoever. I think it's because of the gorgeous squalane oil. My skin has been looking radiant and glowy and overall even-toned. Love, love, love.
    Very satisfied
    This is my first time experimenting with retinoids, and I did not know what to expect. It took me a while to understand how to use this product. A little goes a long way, you only need 2-3 drops for your entire face and the price tag makes this product extremely appealing. I wake up to the softest skin ever. My skin looks bright and luminous. I will be trying the 0.5% after finishing this bottle.
    Great for spot-prone skin!
    I have been using this product a couple of times a week for a while now to help with my spots, and it's been great. I haven't used retinol before and I do have sensitive skin, so I started on the low concentration, but had no adverse reaction and so will be moving on to the higher concentration soon. The Ordinary's range is so worthwhile.
    Ordinary Retinol 0.2%
    very happy with this , curious about further products
    Great
    Leaves my skin super soft. It is a bit oily so allow some time to absorb before putting on your cream. No peeling since it has a low retinol concentration.
    Wow!
    Purchased this a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it, my skin has never felt so good, it didn't irritate my skin (which I was sceptical at first) my pores certainly look better and even the slight sun damage I have has faded so will be purchasing this again and then moving on to 0.5. Would recommend this product.
    Great product
    Have only been using this for a week but am really pleased with it. I use it every night before night cream. Yes, it is a bit greasy but by morning it has all soaked in a treat. Only on first use did I experience a little bit of sensitivity. Make sure you use sunscreen each morning and maybe stop using it for a week before going on holiday and whilst away to make sure you do not experience any problems.
    Amazing
    Having used this serum in conjunction with rosehip seed oil for at least 10 weeks I have just started to notice a change. The texture is improving and skin is a little less dry - now that winter is over I'm hoping I will see much more of an improvement. However, the winning nature of this combination is definitely the improvement of pigmentation and dark areas on my skin. Alongside the hydration this is great! Will continue to use and will purchase the higher 5% retinoid once back in stock.
    Game Changer
    This product had my skin looking even and smooth after 2 weeks of using it. The first week I felt dryness and a bit of sensitivity but once that settled I have been left with great skin, I’ve stopped wearing foundation every day now. I’ve also recommended this product to all my friends and will repurchase.
