THE ORDINARY (THE EXTRAORDINARY SKINCARE BRAND)


You definitely need to be living under a rock to not have heard of this amazing new skincare brand. The Ordinary comes from Deciem who bill themselves as the Abnormal Beauty Company who have a number of different ranges from different price points. The Ordinary is one of their more affordable ranges and brings to you fuss free skincare that keeps it simple and talks about its key ingredients instead of the magical things it 'could' do to you skin. The range is super affordable with the most expensive products around £12 but still brings the ingredients that most other companies would charge a fortune for.



I ordered this one as I wanted their Silicon Primer but that out of stock so thought I would give this a go. I was slight sceptical at first as I had never used a primer before that was so runny, however, I have been pleasantly surprised. The primer is very much a liquid when in the tube but once applied it your face it smooths over lovely and doesn't leave my face looking shiny. It contains silicon which isn't as issue for me as I find that creates a lovely smooth base for my makeup. I've really enjoyed using this as a primer and it helps keep my makeup in place all day and look flawless.

Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% | £5.50

This is one of the products that I haven't really been impressed by and also the smell completely puts me off, I couldn't say what it was in particular but it was pleasant - I guess more expensive products can be a higher price for the scents added. This is a serum like formula that applies smoothly but it does give my skin a tacky feel. Lactic acid is know for its exfoliating properties but unfortunately I can't say it has done anything in particular for me.

Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% | £4.90

I picked this one up as i've had some luck with Vitamin C products and hoped this would be the same, unfortunately again this isn't for me. Vitamin C is known for brightening properties and can help improve the signs of ageing. I have to say I can't report back to you on any of this as I could not stand the formula of this and only applied it once. It has a gritty texture to it and almost felt like I needed to wash it off, I left it on in the hope it would settle down but it honestly felt awful and I have been put off from using it again.

100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil | £9.00

I picked this one up but I definitely should have gone for the Moroccan Argan Oil serum as this one is pretty much identical to the Pai Rose Hip oil I already have. Rose Hip Seed Oil is known for minimising photo ageing and scars, and although I don't suffer with acne scars or anything of the like I can't comment on whether it works that way. However, I love applying this to my skin in the evening, it soaks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and plump.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 | £5.90

I've saved the best until last as this is definitely the favourite products I've tried and I use it morning and night every day. Hyaluronic acid is known for its hydration properties and is exactly what I need, I have found with this my skin feels refreshed and hydrated and the dry areas around my nose have disappeared. This does have a tacky feel to it once on my skin but I apply a moisturiser after and that goes away.

I actually ordered some more of The Ordinary skincare just after writing this post so I'm sure you will see that on my blog soon.

  3. I have seen this brand pop up on the blogging world a few times lately and I must say I am intrigued every time, I love the packaging. I'm a huge lover of Hydraluron so the Hyaluronic Acid product sounds perfect for me, definitely adding it to my shopping list.
