The ordinary products

Hi beauties!! ๐Ÿ’› I have dry skin and was looking to try a couple new products but wanted to hear some opinions first. I am interested in trying a couple things from the ordinary brand. I really like how affordable they are! Specifically their moisturizer, toner, and aha/bha peeling solution. What do you guys think? What are your fave products from the ordinary? Thank you!!

RE: The ordinary products

I love The Ordinary! โค๏ธ I have eczema and have found that there are quite a few products in their lineup that work for my skin. I really like the Matrixyl, Argireline, and EUK serums, and have also used the Squalane, B Oil, Hyaluronic acid, AHA/ BHA peel, Azelaic acid, and Salicylic acid. (I canโ€™t really use the peel or the salicylic/Azelaic acids in the winter. And, full disclosure, the peel isnโ€™t something to EVER apply to compromised skin! But when my moisture barrier is healthy enough for it, I do use it once a month or so!) The only real drawback with The Ordinary is that thereโ€™s typically just one active in each formula, as opposed to a cocktail of effective ingredients. So you might need to layer or use a series of serums in your routine to cover all your bases, so to speak.

Sounds amazing!! Thank you

Re: The ordinary products

Hi @kait1908 ! I have a bottle of The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 1 oz/ 30 mL but havenโ€™t tried it yet because honestly, 30% AHA scares me. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฌ (I use another brandโ€™s 10% AHA leave-on exfoliant 1-3x a week.) That product is something Iโ€™d use only once a week, or once every 2 weeks, since I also use retinol every other night. If your skinโ€™s not already used to an AHA exfoliant, you might want to start with something less potent than 30%. 


My favorite TO product is The Ordinary "Buffet" 1 oz/ 30 mLBuffet. Itโ€™s a big dose of peptides, plus it contains my skinโ€™s favorite humectant, hyaluronic acid. This winter, my favorite way to use Buffet is to give it 2-3 minutes to sink into my skin and then spritz a hydrating mist over it immediately before applying my moisturizer. 


I also have The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL which is very moisturizing but also very viscous: a single drop goes a long way, and it can swamp my oily zone if Iโ€™m not extra light-handed with it. But itโ€™s quite nice on dry skin.
