Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane is a lightweight serum with an advanced, non-irritating retinoid complex in a squalane base.
This treatment visibly reduces the signs of aging without irritation. It diminishes the look of wrinkles and fine lines, brightens dark spots and hyperpigmentation, and smooths and refines the skin’s texture.
Apply a few drops to your skin at night before oils, moisturizers, and creams. Do not use this serum with other products containing retinoids, such as retinol and retinoic acid. Retinoids can make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation. We recommend wearing sunscreen during the day.

First I would like to say I totally love this product! I love the simplicity of it. You simply put a few drops on your face and work it in. I've been using it for 5 days now and I have seen a difference in my fine lines across my forehead. I'm not sure if it's the combination of products I'm using, however, it works for me. I'll be writing a more detailed review after a month of using this product to keep anyone who cares updated.
I continue to be completely impressed by The Ordinary's products. They are Holy Grail status in my skin care regiment. This product has made a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin in 2 weeks time. That is unbelievable. Previously, I had the emulsion formula but much prefer this version of the product. I think the squalene is a better moisturizer for my dry skin. I have experienced ZERO irritation. I swear by this brand. Thank you Beautylish for making this more available. I always feel like it's my birthday when I receive an order from you. I appreciate the detail you place into packaging. It makes you special.
Works great! More results showed in a month than the previous Advanced retinoid The ordinary originally had and its like a one and done step at night with the built in light moisturizer.
At 54, I don’t really have a lot of wrinkles (due to excellent genes and staying out of the sun), but time was beginning to do its damage. I have never used any retinoids-containing product, but my grandmother swore by it, and used it every night, even at the age of 89. I found The Ordinary brand and noticed they carried this product. I ordered some to just try, and I am now a convert! I’ve been using nightly for only two weeks and not only have my dark patches started fading, a large brown scar on my neck has become almost unnoticeable as well! The texture of my facial skin is so silky soft, and the fine lines on my forehead have all but disappeared.
I have only been using this for a week, but I liked the consistency and the dropper. It is easy to work in, even without a mirror and makes your face feel smooth. It works well with my lazy girl routine- I just keep it on my nightstand and rub it in as I'm watching TV before bed.
I love how minimalist The Ordinary. is, I have noticed a difference already, my fine lines are less noticeable and my redness from healing airsoft scars is getting better(I get shot in the face once in a while) I am obsessed with The Ordinary. I can't wait to get my hands on their toner!
It's been good to me. I can't say I've seen great results tho. This is more of a life style product than in your face results. But that can be a good thing if you don't want weeks of inflamed skin like other retinol products. I'd compare it to jordan samual. Although I like his better it's much more expensive. So I rotate this. The mixture is very calming. No irritation at all
I'm in the middle of really changing up my skincare routine, this is one of my first additions. So far, I really like it. I've seen an improvement around my eyes and my forehead. I have a couple of trouble spots that will take longer to see if it will make a difference, but it does seem to be working. I'm not expecting miracles at my age, just to look as good as I can. I've only been using this about a month and I would recommend this. Really love The Ordinary overall. It's great product at a wonderful price. Definitely more than worth the cost. So many other products are so much more expensive and this works just as well.
I've only been using this a few weeks but it seems pretty good. I noticed sometimes when I go to bed with a few pimples, I wake up and they are gone. I leave the product on overnight. I haven't noticed any dryness out negative effects, etc but I have used retinol in the past. I will continue to use it and see how it plays out. The price is great so that is nice.
maybe because I have long hair that gets in my face at night, but I do not like the oily texture of this product. although my skin is somewhat dry, I just do not care for any oily product on my skin, and it doesn't absorb to any extent. I don't want oil on my pillow or in my hair, so this product is not for me.
