Product Description

Keep your complexion full of youth with The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane.

This magical anti-ageing serum is your one-stop shop to combatting unwanted signs of ageing. Wave goodbye to fine lines, pigmentation and dark spots as the potent formula harnesses the power of pure retinol in order to boost radiance, smooth skin texture and even out skin tone.

Helping to build up skin's tolerance (as retinol can often cause irritation), The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane is ideal for beginners and the perfect stepping-stone to using Retinol 1% in Squalane.

Simply use the convenient pipette to apply a small amount of the serum to the skin in the evening, and follow up with an SPF in the morning. Wake up and look forward to revealing a complexion that's renewed, restored and bursting with radiance.

This product goes well with The Ordinary Retinol 1% In Squalane. You might also like Retinol 0.2% In Squalane from The Ordinary.
