Helps treat: Signs of ageing and uneven skin texture

Feels like: An oil-like serum

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

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

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still not the one, but... After a disastrous experience with another brands' Retinol treatment some time back which was highly raved about online, I decided to give The Ordinary's a shot. Although touted as being more irritating than the Granactive Retinoid versions, I actually found it to be the complete opposite. Granactive makes my face break out in hives, and that's despite only using once a week for the first 2 weeks and gradually increasing to every 3rd night. I did this for 5 weeks. I never got beyond that as the itchy redness appearing in the middle of an important work meeting was my last straw with it. For some reason my skin just wouldn't adjust. I then got hold of the Retinol 0.5% and although the hives didn't appear, the acne did! I thought it was just my skin purging but no matter how much I spaced usage out I would still get them, especially on my forehead and cheeks. As both versions are 'squalane'-based I'm starting to wonder whether it's squalane and not Retinol itself that my face is reacting to? Luckily I found good use for it on my KP - which I started with the full 1% and now that that's finished I'm using the 0.5% to maintain results. It hasn't gone, KP isn't a condition you can permanently get rid of unfortunately, but it helps keep it less noticeable and my arms and thighs where I have it the worst, much smoother. Now all I need to find is a Retinol that works with, and not against; my face!  ~ 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 4 out of 5 by from Good if you are unsure of using retinol This is a very light serum and is ideal if you have thought of using retinol but have had concerns. With a low concentration it's best as a preventative treatment but you need to use moisturizer to help hydrate the skin as it may feel dry after using it for a while Always remember to use sunscreen, so I tend to only use it at night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for retinol beginners! I love using this in the evening. It has been a great introduction to retinol for me. The formula goes a long way and does not aggravate the skin. Like with any retinol or acid product, SPF is absolutely essential on the day to day to protect the skin whilst it adjusts to use. Would highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice I love the ordinary. Yes. The formula is very simple and even a bit too simple. But you can do your own creative combination with their products. It is also soooo affordable. It’s pretty much accessible for everyone. Use this with body lotion. Good for anti aging.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first introduction to retinol This was my first retinol/retinoid product and this definitely was a nice first step. This prepares your skin before harsher products and allows you to see what this ingredient does. I started slowly so didn't have any peeling. Just don't go too much too soon.
