The Ordinary - Worth the Hype?


There has been such a big hype around the "The Ordinary" products lately, so I just needed to try some myself and see what the fuss is all about. I was quite happy with my skincare routine, but could definitely use a new face oil. Also, their prices are really so low (SERIOUSLY) so I thought, why not?
And I am so glad I did that!

I did some research in advance, because I wasn't sure what I should pick. I knew I wanted a face oil, a serum, something with vitamin C and also a spot treatment. So let's talk about the products I ended up buying. Oh just one thing before we start, the easiest way to buy those products is Asos.. especially when you already buy loads on there haha..

Sounds amazing, right? And it is. It is simple and that's what I love about it. A lot of face oils these days have a variety of different ingredients. This one only has one. And it does what it promises. When I have extremely dry skin I use this at night and the dryness disappears over night. A life saver! And I can't wait to use it even more in the colder months. 

Such a godsend for everyone with dry skin. I mostly apply it in the morning under my moisturiser. It feels like my moisturiser and this serum are working so well together. I just adore this product. Also, it feels ultra light and not oily on the skin so I can wear it under makeup without having to worry. 

I was looking for a product containing Vitamin C, as I was really lacking this in my routine. And as you know, Vitamin C brightens your skin and I am all about that bright and glowy skin. I decided on this one as it is also supposed to have anti ageing benefits. I mainly use this at night as a serum. 

I never really suffer from breakouts, but from time to time (better said once a month) I get one or two blemishes. Then I love to have something on hand to help me out. Of course, you can never expect a miracle, but this solution really helped me out and minimised those breakouts. But I would say if you have sensitive or dry skin, only use it on the problem area, when you use it on your whole face I find it way too harsh!



Have you tried any of their products?

  8. The Ordinary is so great! I currently use their 100% Rosehip oil and I love it. Also use their 30% AHA Peeling Solution once a week to exfoliate and it works so well. Next up to try is the Hyaluronic Acid and also their full coverage foundation. Your blog is so cute! xx

  9. I have never heard of these before! From afar they seem like wonderful products made with great ingredients. But reading it is harsh on sensitive skins, seems like it would be too tough for me. Thank you for your honest opinions!!! XO, Ellese

  10. I have so many things that I want to pick up from them but I want to be sure to use everything up at home before I start buying stuff! I'm on the waitlist for their glycolic acid toner and I'm interested in some acid peels. I feel like every beauty blogger has a review of their products and pretty much every says that given the price, it's a bang for your buck!

    1. YES it definitely would. I just would be careful with the salicylic acid, only use it on the spots :) otherwise it's too harsh :)
