From research on skincare forums and case studies I've learnt that Retinol such as this can NOT give you short term results, or even medium term results. In fact, people only start showing results after 6 months use, and the most results after 3 years plus. People who say they got results after just one week probably have dry skin that was in desperate need of moisture, so they are really …Read more

Being used to using prescription retin a, I wasn’t expecting too awful much from this. Granted, I’ve not used retin a in a few months. But this stuff is amazing for my skin. My skin is clearer and smoother than with retin a! I’ve only been using about a month, I don’t expect miracles on the fine lines that are reappearing from not using retin a, and nothing will help the two trenches on my …Read more

I love this product. It's made the biggest difference to my skin. My skin is now 'mature' and I was waking up with rough patches every morning, cellular turnover slowing down now I'm in my 40's. I was using manual exfoliators but found them to be just too drying and I would wake up with the same rough skin the next day. I've been using this for just over a month and …Read more

I have to agree with the previous reviewer.. this made my face breakout and I haven’t had a big breakout in a long time!
I usually use the Skinstitut Retinol Serum and have never had any issues. I put it on at night and my skin looks radiant and clearer the next day.
I thought I would give The Ordinary a try as I’ve used a few products and have liked them and the price point isn’t bad …

After a disastrous experience with ROC's Retinol night treatment some time back which came been highly raved about online, I decided to give The Ordinary's a shot. Although touted as being more irritating than the Granactive Retinoid versions from Deciem, I actually found it to be the complete opposite. Granactive makes my face break out in hives, and that's despite only using once …Read more

This is a review for TO's 0.2 % retinol. I've been using it for over 6 months now and the results have been great. I have bought this with the aim to clear all active acne, blackheads, reduce the size of my pores and even out my skin tone, as well as for its antiaging properties.
- As far as acne is concerned, my skin is now 99% clear of acne and the size of my pores was …

**I'm actually using the 0.2% version of this (i couldnt find a review for it).

Not sure how this is working for meyet. I bought this with the intention to help reduce my acne since retinol is supposed to help with the rate of cell turnover on our skin. So the faster the skin sheds the dead skin cells, the less of a chance …

This is a review for the 0.2 % retinol as makeupalley doesn't have a separate review entry for it. I am very happy with this product. I've had it for about a month, and I actually only use it once every 3 - 5 days because I find that it is very strong. There is definitely a relationship between the level of irritation and the effect it produces, in my opinion. I've probably used it …Read more

I started off with the Granactive Retinoid in Squalane 5% for 6months. Starting off very slowly over skincare and then ending up applying every night over toner.

I have recently finished a bottle of the 0.5% Retinol in s
Squalane and I am happy with the results. I noticed a little extra dryness for a couple of weeks. But that was easily addressed. I feel it has continued to even …

(RATING NUETRAL SINCE I JUST STARTED THIS)

I tried the Ordinary Granative Retinoid 2% in Sqaulane for a few months (intermittently, about 30 out of 50 days). It was ok but didn't make any major changes to my skin (just minor ones, both good and slightly bad).

Interestingly, the Ordinary's website describes this product as such:
"This water-free solution …
