Hello ladies,


Ever since they hit the marked in 2016, The Ordinary products are making waves, and rightfully so, they are amazing products at very affordable prices.


The Ordinary is a brand from DECIEM that focuses on advanced functional beauty, and bring to market effective, more familiar technologies.


Stripping back unnecessary packaging and misleading ingredients, The Ordinary offers brilliant, high performance products at reasonable prices.


So whether you are battening a break out, fight the signs of fatigue or just need a brightening boost, these vials of pure ingredients, can be mixed and matches with your current skin care favorites to ensure you always look your best.

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, congestion and balance visible aspects of sebum activity. Niacinamide is also an effective ingredient for brightening skin tone. Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.


This will be my third vial of Niacinamide from The Ordinary, and I have to tell you, that for me to repurchase a product, over and over again, it is a miracle and that product is simply amazing. And this product is absolutely A.M.A.Z.I.N.G., ever since I started using it, my skin looks so much better, smoother, moisturized and more luminous.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 - can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This formulation combines low, medium and high-molecular weight HA, as well as Vitamin B5 for multi-depth hydration and visible plumping without drawing water out of the skin solely to improve temporary surface hydration. Apply a few drops to face AM and PM before creams.


When ever I tried hyaluronic acids in the past, I always felt, after application, that my skin was tightening and griping, like a peel-off mask. But not this light formulation, I can barely feel it on the skin

Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution - is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 7% toning solution offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use.


Use ideally in the PM, no more frequently than once per day. After cleaning, saturate a cotton pad with the formula and sweep across face and neck. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes. Do not rinse off. Continue with additional skin treatments as needed.


This product may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.


This is the first time I use a glycolic acid, and I have to say I quite like the way my skin feels and looks after I use it. It help reduce hyper pigmentation of dark spots, added a subtle glow to the complexion and minimize the appearance of uneven skin texture.

Lactic Acid 10% + HA - Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin.


Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance.


This product may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.


I feel that the lactic acid is a step up from the gycolic acid and can not be used daily. I only use it when I feel my skin needs a bit of extra care, that the gycolic acid can not provide. But I have noticed that in the morning after I used the lactic acid, my skin feel and looks a bit more fresh and smooth.

After testing these The Ordinary products for a few weeks, I love them. You do need a bit of research on how to use or mix them for better results, but you have all the information on their website .

Let me know if you tried any of The Ordinary products and if you loved them or not.


Kisses, Julia
