The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane 30ml

Code: DC2055
  • £5.80
Item in Stock | Same day dispatch if ordered before 2:00pm
The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane (30ml) is a high-strength, highly-stable, water-free solution containing 1% pure retinol. A form of Vitamin A which has been shown to even out fine lines, treat dark spots and blemishes whilst rejuvenating the skin, retinol encourages cell turnover, revealing smoother, plumper skin. With sensitive skin types, retinol can cause irritation initially while the skin develops resistance, in which case the newer technology used in The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Squalane is recommended. Minimising irritation by excluding silicone, alcohol, nut, soy and gluten, the solution is vegan-friendly and is completely cruelty-free.

Directions of use:

  • Apply a small amount to the face in the PM.
  • Use after water serums but before heavier treatments.
  • Sunscreen protection is recommended during UV exposure.

I’ve only been using this product for a short time but have already seen a difference in my skin and my sister and a friend both said my skin was looking good and what foundation did I use - I told them it’s Retinol 1% - not the foundation - really am pleased with this product - it actually works !!

Amazing product! Saw a massive difference in two weeks of using. Lines on my forehead and laugh lines slowly decreasing, my face looks brighter and glowy. I got comments from friends and family telling me my skin is glowing! Will buy again.

Great product, shipped pretty quickly! If you are new to retinol its best to use it only once a week until your skin builds a tolerance for it otherwise your skin will peel and break out.

Brilliant, use it at night before bed....plumper and fresher skin.

Only been using for a few days but can already see an improvement. I’ve used it on my face and chest. I’ve had to stop using it on my chest as it became too sensitive, so I’m going to start on the 0.2% and then work my way up. I’m going to use the rest of the 1% bottle and then move on to the 2%
