Helps treat: Signs of ageing and irregular skin texture

Feels like: A lightweight oil-like formula

Recommended for: This moderate-strength retinol-alternative delivers anti-ageing benefits without irritation

Enjoy the nourishing qualities of retinoid skincare without the common side effects with The Ordinary Retinoid 2% In Squalane. This anti-ageing serum helps to minimise the look of hyperpigmentation and revitalise the skin for a more youthful look.

This serum features granactive retinoid, a next-generation retinoid active technology that avoids the irritation commonly produced by retinoid use. As such, the inclusion of its 2% concentrate of the advanced granactive retinoid helps to prevent redness and flaking after application.

This next-generation solution is free from silicone and alcohol, and is also vegan and cruelty-free. This formula can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation, so thorough skin protection is advised in conjunction with use.

Key Benefits

  • A highly stable and water-free skincare solution
  • Uses advance granactive retinoid for improved results against skin ageing
  • Avoids the irritation commonly associated with retinoid usage
  • Helps to soften the look of fine lines
  • Vegan and cruelty-free formula

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fussed Really not fussed over this product. Weird water oil texture. It does glide over the skin but I don’t like the texture, feels too greasy and I noticed no difference while using this. I don’t even remember now what it’s meant to do but honestly I seen no difference and I stopped using it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No difference Bought this hoping to see a noticable difference. Been using it 3 times a week for a month, absolutely no difference. Probably better for a beginner not for someone whose been using retinol for 5 years like myself. Back to Drunken elephant far better

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok but no significant diffenece overall I bought this as i had been on accuatane for my acne for 7 months and have been off it now for a year so wanted to introduce something into my skincare that helped with the post scarring and uneven texture of my skin. I tried Paulas Choice vit C booster and didn't find it madr a huge diffenece (my skim felt very sensitive and became even more dry) so tried this as it was in squalene and so thought it would be more suited to my sensitive skin which it is but i havent seen a drastic change and I've been using it twice a week for over a month now. Perhaps i need to up my useage but wanted to gradually bring it in. I also use paulas choice 2%bha on other nights and find that gives more visible results than this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only retinoid for Sun sensitive skin I have tried many other retinol products before including the ordinary’s retinol everything else except this Granactive Retinoid 2% made my pigmented skin more sun sensitive. Since it's in Squalane, it doesn’t dry out the skin and makes skin soft and supple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It’s okay I’m not sure about the difference this has made. Mid last year I turned 30 and thought I should try retinols in my routine. I used this for six months. I didn’t notice a difference and actually stopped my acid toner to use this at night. I have graduated to the 5% but still haven’t seen a change.
