Since The Ordinary skin care range went viral, I reckon because of Wayne Goss, at the end of 2016 it’s been the height of everything desired by any skincare addict. I’m no exception to this. Although I may not have perfect skin, I’ve forever striving for anything that can keep my skin moisturised, breakouts under control and also anything that will aid anti-ageing.
As you can see from my previous post;
Anything but Ordinary – Skincare at its Best I’ve been loving all the products I’ve used from the Ordinary.
The Vitamin C moisturises is brilliant at keeping my dry skin moisturised along with evening out my skintone and Vitamin C is well known for having great anti-ageing properties and as a girl in their mid-twenties, this is extremely important to me.
The way I use these is by squeezing a pea-sized amount of the Vitamin C moisturiser along with a big blob of the Niacinamide and a big blob of Salicylic Acid 2% (£4, ASOS) which exfoliates the skin and helps fight the appearance of blemishes and blackheads. I then pat this concoction into my face and neck before applying eye cream. I do this every morning and evening on cleansed skin.
I often research into what’s missing from my skin routine as I try not to overload my skin with too many products and if something isn’t working I won’t repurchase it or necessarily replace it, I’ll simply look at what my problem area is and find a product which will hopefully aid this.
Also a good thing to note is that The Ordinary do not test on animals and it’s quirkily noted on their boxes ‘Tested on Humans’.
Recently, my skins been a bit dry and a little red when I do get disturbed skin or breakouts. I looked into this and decided to give the Lactic Acid 5% and HA 2% (£5.50, ASOS) a try.
This product is a mild exfoliant best used at night. It’s said to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity, so I’ll be adding a drop of this to my evening skincare routine.
Have any of you converted your skincare to the Ordinary? If so, I’d love to know what products you use the most!
