Rated 4 out of 5 by londongirl777 from I like it Ok I have to admit as first I did not like this product very much. It is quite oily and sometimes hard to get just the right amount out. My face also had dry flakes for a couple of times. Overtime, I've built my resistance and I have come to really like it. 1% retinol is very strong and it is actually effective. I notice an improvement in my overall complexion. This bottle also lasts ages. You only need a few drops to cover the whole face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LH1 from Always a fan of this Always a big fan of this, and I always come back to it. Does just what you expect and want it to do, and the incredibly cheap price means it’s a winner. (Don’t be put off by the price at all). I see results as soon as the next morning when I use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SelenaL from Unexpected results! The most effective product I've used so far for KP (chicken skin) on my upper arms and thighs. For some odd reason I can't use this on my face without breaking out, despite starting on the relatively mild Granactive Retinoid and progressing to 0.5% Retinol in Squalane. But when it comes to body it's a whole different story! I read an online article last year that gives you the low down on the best things you can use on KP. AHA (Glycolic and Lactic acid) lotions and scrubs featured heavily on that list, but one ingredient which they strongly advised looking out for was 'Retinol'. Now I don't know if this article was written pre-The Ordinary era but they emphasized Retinol being a super-effective but very costly cure...but of course that's no longer the case! With all those unused bottles of The Ordinary Retinol sitting around it made complete sense to use them up and I jumped straight onto the 1%. At first I used every 2-3 nights and then I increased to every 2nd night. That was about 1 month ago. I've experienced no irritation and no breakouts whatsoever and in fact I actually use this very liberally, up to 7 drops or so per upper arm or thigh. I can now see a big difference in the visibility of my KP, the red dots are much less visible and refined. Prior to using this Amlactin was the most effective product I had tried, Retinol is one step beyond that, my arms are at least 70% improved (legs were worse to start with so will probably take longer to catch up). The only one downside is I have to be super-diligent about using sun protection, regardless of the conditions outside. Other than that super happy with the results and all for a fraction of the price of any other KP 'cure'. Will the results remain? From what I've gathered about the condition I doubt it, maintenance seems to be the key in keeping it at bay as there's no permanent cure and until there is, this is the next best thing! ~ My Space NK Top 7 must-have list ~ (My top 7 must-have beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Space NK) 1.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Raaniah from Love it The ordinary has always been known for being affordable and effective and i love this brand so much. Also the fact that there is minimal ingredient make it even more interesting and it each product is more targeted towards a particular concern and this makes it easy to know which ingredient is having a negative reaction to our face.but sometimes retinol may not work the same for every body so its good to do a patch test first

Rated 3 out of 5 by linakav from Gentle It’s a nice budget retinol option but I the texture is a bit annoying. I absolutely adore their squalane but I only need to use couple of drops otherwise I get too oily. And this product if you put that little, you don’t see much difference, if put more it gets messy. Their granactic retinoid is the best, highly recommend.
