The Ordinary Skincare Haul
I have heard so much about The Ordinary that I had to order some of their products for myself. The Ordinary is a Brand from DECIEM that also includes NIOD and Fountain amongst others. The Ordinary is about clinical formulations with integrity and brings to market effective technologies at honourable prices.
All DECIEM products including The Ordinary are free from parabens, sulphates, Mineral Oil and formaldehyde. They do not test on animals and do not pay others to do so and none of their brands are sold in mainland China (source The Ordinary website).
I bought 5 products from The Ordinary:
Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% (with 23% pure L-Ascorbic Acid and 2% Hyaluronic Acid Spheres) - This product visibly targets uneven tone and signs of age and should be applied to face in the morning or evening. It's fragrance and silicone free. It's £4.90 for 30ml.
Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%. This is a multifunctional brightening formula, that visibly targets uneven tone, dullness and textural irregularities. It should be applied to the face morning and/or evening. It's fragrance free and costs £5.50 for 30ml.
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a high strength vitamin and mineral blemish formula which regulates sebum and minimises pores. This should be applied to the entire face morning and evening before heavier creams. It's fragrance free and costs £5 for 30ml.
Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% is a mild lactic acid superficial peeling formulation. This one visibly targets uneven tone, textural irregularities and fine lines and should be applied once per day ideally in the evening. It's fragrance free and costs £5.50 for 30ml.
High-Spreadability Fluid Primer is a spreadability enhancing lightweight surface smoother and primer with high flexibility silicones. It supports makeup adherence, visible surface texture and hydration. It's fragrance free and costs £5.50 for 30ml.
I haven't had a chance to try any of these products out enough to pass judgement on them, so look out for a review post in the next month or so.
Have you tried out any The Ordinary products?
