The Ordinary – A Skincare Brand Far From That

Reading Time: 2 minutes

*CONFESSION TIME* I never ever used to have a skincare routine. I used to be one of these gals who would wipe their makeup off half arsedly with a makeup wipe at the end of the day and maybe occasionally use a chemical riddled face scrub in the shower for a treat.

My skin wasn’t terrible but it was pretty dry and it just wasn’t looking or feeling great.

When skincare started to peak my interest, I wanted something that was going to be easy and not too time-consuming. I tried a lot of products and routines and none of them stuck because it wasn’t enjoyable and to be honest, it was pretty expensive!

Until I stumbled across The Ordinary and I thought I’d give it a shot. I’ve been using their products for about a month now and honestly, I’m in love!

I tried the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution (£6.80), Natural Moisturising Factors HA (£5) and Lactic Acid 5% with HA 2% (£5.50).

The price range is pretty damn great, I’ve never seen an acid serum or decent toner for under £10 before.

The size of the moisturiser (30ml) for the price isn’t amazing. I’ve used others of a similar price with a larger quantity of product.

Price aside, these products DELIVERED. I apply the moisturiser AM and PM at the end of my routine and it leaves my skin feeling phenomenal.

I use the lactic acid once a week (twice if I’m extra spotty) it stops any spots in their tracks. Lactic Acid, I heart you and I’m totally here for this skincare business.

I’m eager to try out more of their products so I’m very much open to suggestion. I think my heart is set on the Vitamin C Suspension cream.

Thank you, The Ordinary, for brightening up my life and face with your amazingly simple (and bank account friendly) products. Lots of love, all the skincare newbs like me.
