The Ordinary Retinol Serum 1% in Squalane 30ml

This highly stable, water-free, high strength age-defying solution features 1% 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 to allow skin to build up tolerance.

Water- and silicone-free, The Ordinarys Retinol 1% 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 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.

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.

Not a good experience with this retinol

I used this product for 2 months yet my skin never got used to it and I think 2 month is enough time to get used to any potential purging. It caused red eczema patches, itchiness and my skin became so sensitive and my skin barrier damaged. Note: I have used retinol before, I started slowly with low percentages, and then slowly moved to 1%). I continued to apply for 2 months and my skin got worse, and now I have eczema on my face and neck so I stopped use and am working on building my skin barrier back. I would not buy it again nor recommend it - there are so many better 1% retinol products on the market! Disappointed that this product ruined my skin!

Hard to say...

If this worked or not. I have been using it 2-3 times a week. Haven’t noticed any difference or allergic reaction, but I used vitamin C serum before. It is possible that the vitamin C serum affects how well the retinol is working. It’s possible that the retinol has reduced marks on my face a little.

Amazing product!

I started a regime with products from The Ordinary a few months ago and I'm so impressed. I use this retinol at night and wake up with glowing skin! It's amazing value for money, a little goes a long way and a bottle lasts for ages!

Retinol

Čudovite izdelke ponujate. Veliko mojih prijateljic sem navdušila. V njihovem imenu in svojem se poslužujemo vaših izdelkov. Retinol ne je nadvse fasciniral. Uporabljam tudi izdelek s c vitaminom. Navdušila sem tudi svojo hčerko in ji za rojstni dan naročila nekaj vaših izdelkov. Hvala vam **** You offer wonderful products. I impressed a lot of my friends. We use your products on their behalf and on our own. Retinol was not very fascinating. I also use a product with vitamin c. I also impressed my daughter and ordered some of your products for her birthday. thank you

Quite greasy

I know this is an oil formula, but I found that it doesn't absorb well into the skin and I didn't notice a difference in my skin after 2 months of using it. It was really hydrating and I had no irritation at all, so used it daily after my toner which was sufficient not to leave my skin dry. However, I prefer retinol in serum form so I can apply a moisturiser afterwards, which you cannot do with this being an oil. I would recommend it to those with dry skin but avoid if oily as it can clog pores.

Good product but caused spots

I have been using this daily for the last 3-4 weeks and noticed firmer skin with a bit of a glow which was fab. However I have also developed a lot of spots, and despite using it for around a month now, my skin doesn’t seem to be getting used to the product and stop breaking out. I’ll continue using it for now but might not buy another if my skin continues to react with breakouts

Fantastic product!

Never had a beauty regime as I have sensitive skin and I’m prone to outbreaks. The Ordinary was recommended by a friend and I love it! I’ve had zero break outs and have lovely clear skin. I can’t recommend this brand enough. I’ve hone on to buy quite a few other products which I’d say are 5*

Doesn’t do anything

Bought this product with the hope that it could help with my acne scars and breakouts. I have seen no visible reduction in my scarring and instead I have experienced breakouts of whiteheads due to the fact this product is so oily. Has also done nothing for my pores or textural problems. Never again going to purchase from the Ordinary - they don’t live up to what they promise.
