Helps treat: Signs of ageing and uneven skin texture

Feels like: An oil-like serum

Recommended for: This mild strength retinol will help reduce signs of ageing and improve skin’s radiance

Reap the benefits of vitamin A with The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% In Squalane. This skincare treatment is water- and silicone-free and helps to soften the skin while working to minimise the signs of ageing.

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 serums with lower concentrations of retinol in order to build up tolerance.

  • Promotes healthier-looking skin while minimising the look of blemishes
  • Water and silicone-free solution with 0.2% retinol

  • Vegan and cruelty-free

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gentle & easy This was my first go at a retinol treatment, so I was unsure what to expect. I wouldn't say I have sensitive skin, but it is pretty reactionary (which is usually good, as I see "results"). I've been using this for a few weeks and I've had no such negative reaction. I can't say for sure the effects of this product because I've been using a few new things recently, but my skin is brighter. I like the Squalane oil, too, as it is hydrating enough that I don't have to wait for this product to dry before layering another on top. As always with The Ordinary products - the price cannot be beat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great start to retinol I bought this as my first ever retinol product and I absolutely loved it, I started off with 2-3 times a week every evening then slowly more days as my skin got used it. Surprisingly it was not as bad as I thought! Found it mild to use and the oily water based serum was quite easy to use. I found my skin was much smoother and even after using it for few weeks. Great starter retinol and great price too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this for my mum, she has since been using it for a month. She loves how this feel on her skin especially so the great feeling it gives her the next morning. Was told that you can feel the skin is plumper and more smooth. It's low dosage retinol, if it's really working well will get her granactive retinoid from the Ordinary next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable retinol This is a good retinol although not sufficient if you want something really strong. It has hasn’t caused me any drying or breakouts and can even be used under the eyes too. The price is absolutely incredible. Great that Space NK is stocking this excellent range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s great! I have been using this for a few weeks now and it’s going really well. I was dubious to try a retinol for the longest time but I saw this one with squalane and I’ve heard such good things that I was intrigued. It is very smoothing to the skin and my gesture has improved. I haven’t had much dryness or purging either so far so I think the combination of the two ingredients has been a great combo. Would recommend you try and give it a month or so to see how your skin reacts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yay Space NK! I’ve got to say I’m thrilled to see Space NK have brought in the Ordinary. It’s eminently affordable and multi-purpose. I bought this squalane a few years ago and use it under my eyes. I love having an oil for that purpose. They say squalane’s good for hair but I prefer other things for that. Great, simple skincare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good Absolutely loved using this. No negative reaction or purging, just noticeably improved skin, and the squalene feels so nice and hydrating. I've finished this bottle after about 3-4 months and then graduated to 0.5%. Will definitely start by using it 1-2 time at week at first
