I’m fully convinced I will just be restocking my skincare from The Ordinary for the rest of my life. Convinced. I can confidently say I’ve strictly been using a skincare routine fully dedicated to The Ordinary- with the exception of cleansers. The few times I’ve tried to stray or test out another serum I find myself with an all-too-familar breakout – the type which The Ordinary has made sure I never get. To put it simply, I’ve been breaking out for as long as I can remember and absolutely nothing had ever helped, but for the first time in my I’ve gone weeks without breaking out (the only thing stopping me from saying “months” has been weeks where I test out other products). I will keep going back to them and you cannot stop me. I will continue to try out more and more of their products and I’m sure I will continue to never be disappointed. Let’s put a stop to this little profession of my love for The Ordinary and get into the haul, shall we?
First thing’s first; repurchases. If you read my last post then you’ll know fully well how amazingly these three angels have worked out for me. I’ve played around with Lactic Acid as well and I think I like it too, but I genuinely cannot live without these three. The second I noticed that I was running out of my Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I hastily made a huge order restocking on my beloved products. God forbid a day goes by where I don’t use them! So, I picked up that and then my Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA and Advanced Retinoid 2%. As I mentioned in that other post, I use these every night in the order I just listed them. They have saved my skin, I’m sure and I owe everything to them! Honestly, if Deciem were to announce a discontinuation I would definitely order 20 of these. I wouldn’t even feel bad cause it would probably add up to the price of one high end skincare product!
I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a new product! You all know my struggles with texture, pores and scarring. So, this past year I’ve really fallen in love with AHAs and BHAs as they show me the most results. So, when I heard that The Ordinary was releasing a peeling facial that contains them both, I died! Now, this is extremely harsh so do your research before trying it out. It is only to be used as a 10 minute mask and no more than twice a week. I’ve used it once so far and the results were incredible, I cannot wait to continue to use this and see the long term results!
Finally, I picked up this bad boy. I’ve been really focusing a lot on applying an eye cream regularly lately and I’ve been trying out a few. When i saw that The Ordinary now had one that catered precisely to my problems (puffiness, pigmentation) I knew I had to have it. I’ve been using this for a week now and I know eye creams don’t show instant results so we’ll see. I will say however, the texture is super strange- I hope you can see how it’s almost like a gel-oil. Also, this is a huge size for an eye product so I know it will last forever.
Guys, I just cannot get enough of this brand honestly. I’m still patiently awaiting to receive my foundations from them which I waitlisted for ages ago. I have a huge feeling that they’re going to transform my makeup game, just as they’ve transformed my skincare! I’m so glad this brand exists and I don’t know where I’d be without it. I can’t even begin to tell you how much money I’ve wasted on skincare over the years, only to be left with the same problems. This is truly the first time I’ve seen a difference in years. I owe my life to this brand!
Let me know if you’ve tried out The Ordinary and how you feel about it!
