Helps treat: Signs of ageing and uneven skin texture

Feels like: An oil-like serum

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

Fight visible signs of ageing with The Ordinary Retinol 1% 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

Great retinol

I got this retinol for my mother who has really dry skin with fine lines, dullness and wrinkles. This product has helped her skin in a lot of ways. She started with the 0.2% RETINOL and then 0.5% and this time she tried 1%. Since this is squalane based, it has worked really well with her dry aging skin

Best Use: Flakiness, Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Brightening, Anti-Aging

As expected

This is my first Retinol. I tried as ample of the The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane first when warned of possible irritation, then went higher to the The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane. Not irritating for my skin, skin feels smooth after after peeling at first

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.

Best Use: Breakouts & Acne, Fine Lines, Anti-Aging

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.

a decent retinol for regular use

I use this after snail mucin serum and niacinamide. works well and doesnt irritate my skin this way. I prefer 1% retinol over others because this has the strongest concentration and the others feel like they arent doing much for the skin. I use this every other day and follow it with rosehip oil and moisturizer.

Best Use: Hyperpigmentation, Uneven Skin Texture, Visible Pores, Brightening, Anti-Aging
