Game. Changer.

This is my first retinol product, I was a bit sceptical because of the price point, but wow! No irritation whatsoever upon application. I apply this at night, a little goes a long way. Then I put TO HA lotion. I know this works because the next morning, there’s a bit of flakiness, nothing serious, in fact, this tells me it’s working. I then wash with a gentle oil cleanser, apply TO HA serum, moisturizer, and an spf 30 on top. Yes, I can tell it’s working, my skin seems a lot firmer, bouncy, and radiant. Excellent product and highly recommend. I am 55, with dry skin, and this did not irritate in any way. Great job, fantastic product, bravo The Ordinary!!

Hi Catherine! When you first use Retinol we’d suggest only a couple of times a week initially; start every other or every third night and build to every night, but use consistently for maximum results. Consistency is really important and you results will show! As retinol speeds up skin cell turnover it can take 4-8 weeks, everyone is so different! Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, we would love to help 🖤

Nice

I was advised years ago that retinol is a must have. So glad it is available on its own and affordable
