The Ordinary Retinol Serum 0.2% in Squalane 30ml

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.

Water- and silicone-free, The Ordinarys 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 skins tolerance to retinol with lower concentrations such as this to minimise discomfort.

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.

Makes my skin so soft

Leaves my skin feeling very soft the next morning. This with the combination of niacinamide 10% also helped fade my acne scars.

Greater starter retinol

I actually got a sample of another retinol product that was 1% retinol and it was too much to start off with so I purchased this to ease into it. I use it every evening with no peeling. A few drops does the job, I am starting to notice a difference with continued use but results don’t appear overnight. I’m hoping to use this one till it’s empty and then move onto the 0.5%

First retinol, great results

Absolutely loved using this. No negative reaction or purging, just noticeably improved skin, and the squalene feels so nice and hydrating. I've nearly finished this bottle after about 3-4 months and will be graduating to 0.5% next.

Good price

Like the product for the price. Had no side effects so far. Also it somehow smells like Santal 33 from Le Labo!

My first Retinol and been loving it since then...

I have combination skin and hormonal breakouts which started when I hit the age of 30 two years ago and I happened to started using this as a preventive serum first for the wrinkles at the same time (although I don't have that many lines yet). After almost 2 years of using this product, it's been part of my PM skincare routine. Every morning when I wake up, my face looks glowing and it does help to prevent some lines here and there.

Good start for retinol

This is my first retinol product and I'd definitely recommend it. I use it every other night and it has a noticeable effect on my skin the next morning. No irritation at all so I'd look to increase the percentage for my next purchase, but I'd consider this a good first step into using retinol.
