Fight visible signs of ageing with The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane, a water- and silicone-free skincare treatment enriched with vitamin A to help revitalise the complexion.

The highly stable retinol present in this formula works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, photo damage and general signs of skin ageing. It also encourages natural cell turnover, helping to promote softer and healthier-looking skin while working to minimise the appearance of blemishes and dark spots.

As retinol can cause irritation to the skin, newer technologies now exist to mimic the visible effects of retinol without causing as much discomfort for the skin. With this in mind, The Ordinary recommends beginning with lower concentrations in order to build up tolerance.

Key Benefits

  • Works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and general skin ageing
  • Promotes healthier-looking skin while minimising the look of blemishes
  • Water and silicone-free solution with 1% retinol
  • Vitamin A-rich retinol helps minimise signs of hyperpigmentation
  • Vegan and cruelty-free

Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water-based serums but before heavier treatments.

Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected solar exposure.

Caution: Retinol can cause irritation, redness and peeling, especially around the eyes and mouth, in the early stages of treatment while skin builds tolerance. If persistent irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician.

Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children. Refrigerate after opening.

Gentle on skin

I was a bit skeptical giving it a go but I love other ordinary products so thought to give it a try and I am happy with the results it feels gentle on skin and absorb nicely. Didn’t notice any irritation I use it every other day night time and it’s a good retinol with good value for money.

As I always say to everyone who is just starting to use retinols, go low. This is a brilliant product but it’s for someone who has been on retinols for a while as it’s a very high concentration. Work towards it!

I really like products from The Ordinary. good value for money. Retinol is one of my favorites, works really well on problematic skin, if you have oily skin you will love this product too. Reduces acne marks and oily skin with regular use. I recommend to try

I’m jumping back on the retinol train after some time of not using it and trying tetrinoin which I have to say was good but not amazing. This is a higher concentration than the one I was using before so I’m hoping it will help but won’t irritate my skin too much.

Excellent product

I use this product in the evening on face, neck and hands and I follow with a moisturiser once the serum has completely absorbed into the skin. I have seen great results relatively quickly - particularly on my hands - and the price is just perfect as I do not have to count every drop. Overall I am very satisfied with the product and will buy again

Best Use: Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Uneven Skin Texture, Anti-Aging
