There is so much hype about The Ordinary that I simply couldn’t avoid buying and trying.
I have hesitated for a while due to my Rosacea and the most talked about products from this range contain acid of some sort. Some people say that’s OK to use for sensitive skin and others say HELL NO!
For me, I’m not gonna take the risk and so I picked the 100% Plant-derived Squalane serum and the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%. Both of these products avoid the acid base no matter how little is in it and focus on natural product for my skin.
For me, I need skincare that focuses on the calming my skin and providing hydration to my dry T-Zone. Now that you know more about my skin, let’s get onto the products lol.
The Ordinary are a brand made by Deciem who have took social media by storm. You can see why by looking at the elegant and beautiful packaging! Simple yet effective and very clinical looking.
You’d be surprised at the price of the products, both items were under £10 and all of the products in this range are affordable, even the high concentrated acid based products.
This moisture is designed to hydrate and brighten your skin. What’s best is its also cruelty free and alcohol skin and kind on the skin. It contains Vitamin C, the ingredients to help brighten skin amongst other ingredients that are effective in a water based moisturiser. The only set back is that it comes in 30ml, I would love a bigger tube but for £7.80 you cannot complain for such a high end cream you would NOT expect to find on the high street.
This is a lightweight based hydrating serum with natural plant extracts. It’s important for me that it is silicone free as my skin does not react well with silicone based products and it allows the product to really be absorbed and hydrate my skin. The serum boasts to be suitable for all skin types and helps your skin to keep in the hydration as well as adding to it. Again a 30 ml bottle however for a serum a price of £5.50 I am in love with this and will definitely be repurchasing.
I’m so glad I took the time to ready up on the products and was able to find something that suited my skin. This shows that this brand is able to meet the needs of many skin types. I recommend you speak t an adviser if your lucky enough to find them in store to see what best suits your skin.
