I know that everyone is talking about this brand left, right and centre and I was sceptical about putting this up but who doesn't want affordable skin care?, I have used these well over a month now ( I received them on the 18th February) and this is how I've got on with them so far.
The Ordinary is a brand from Deciem curating affordable skincare slashing all the retail costs giving us they main thing we are after, the product. Their skincare is simply marketed with a pipette applicator and glass bottle, which satisfies us, minimalists. After seeing their products on Instagram, I decided to do my own digging and the found their skincare regime guide that they have and went ahead and purchased 4 items. I did find it overwhelming since I had no idea what some of the products meant except the term 'hyaluronic acid' but I definitely wanted something for anti-aging since I have some lines showing on my forehead, I picked up: Buffet, Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5, Advanced Retinoid 2% and 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil. The products that I have picked out are all 30ml and a 12-month expiry date.
Buffet. This is a multi-technology peptide serum which combats multiple signs of ageing. I apply this in the morning and night after my toner, this has no scent and has a thick gloopy texture. I use about 3 drops and it sinks into the skin immediately. I found that it has a slightly sticky feeling but once you work it into your skin I instantly feel my skin becomes more hydrated and smooth. I've had no sensitivity on my skin using this and it works wonders in restoring hydration after cleansing your face. This is the most expensive from their range and when I say it's expensive it's only £12.70/£13. I usually spend at least £20 on serums alone so the costs are already visible. This is also suitable for vegans, is cruelty-free, silicone free, nut-free and alcohol-free. I've already used over half of the product and I predict it will last me 3-4 months altogether.
Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5. This is another serum containing hyaluronic acid which we all know helps hydrate our skin, combined with B5 to moisturise, soothe and heal irritated and problematic skin. This has the same gloopy texture as 'Buffet' and also no scent. It has a slightly tacky feeling which goes away once you massage it into your skin and I also use this day and night. I tailor my skincare to what my skin needs so sometimes I skip this if I were to put on a sleeping mask. This makes all the difference in my skin which truly helps moisturise, plump and restore. This retails for £6 and is also suitable for vegans, is cruelty-free, silicone free, nut-free and alcohol-free.
