The hype around The Ordinary products hasn't faded yet. And I have to admit, even I am all about it. If you remember, I wrote a post a few months back about the products I got. Today I want to update you with some additional thoughts and also with a few new products that have found their way into my collection. I got all of these products from Asos (click here), I know you can order on their website as well but I just find Asos so convenient. 


 Let's start with the first products I got..

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 overnight. A lifesaver! Especially now that it's colder I find myself using it way more than I did when I first got it.

Such a godsend for everyone with dry skin. I mostly apply it in the morning under my moisturizer. It feels like my moisturizer 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. My bottle is almost over and I will order a backup asap.

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 used this at night as a serum. I have nothing bad to say about this product. But I think this is one of those that you need to use for a very long time to see any improvement, or it just doesn't work on me. I have switched to a different serum at night (the retinoid) and I see such a drastic difference every time. 

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! I still get this out every now and then when I have a breakout.. and it really works wonders. 

Now onto the things I got about one or two months ago..

If I would have to recommend one product it has to be this one. This is such a miracle product! I and my boyfriend both use it. But it is recommended to only use it at night. Some people can react to the Retinoid but for me, it was not the case, even though my skin is quite sensitive at times. I use it around 5 or 6 nights of the week.. so almost daily. I wake up with smooth and even skin in the morning.. OBSESSED! It has anti ageing properties and helps with breakouts and other skin troubles. if you don't use it in your skincare routine yet I highly recommend reading about the benefits. 

This is a peeling which I use about once a week. There is also a less harsh version with 5% but I personally don't mind the 10%. I really like this product and feel very refreshed after using it. But it certainly does not beat my Retinoid. 

I can't tell you too much about this one. My boyfriend is the one using it mainly. It is supposed to help with blemishes and reduces the oiliness of the skin. He absolutely loves this and has been using it for months now. He uses it as a serum in the morning. 

This serum I got because of a recommendation of a friend. I have a bit of pigmentation around my nose and also tend to have quite a lot of redness on my skin. My pale skin colour doesn't really help to hide it. This serum is supposed to brighten the complexion. I use it in the morning after my Hyaluronic Acid. It feels great and I definitely see a difference with it. 

So this is my collection. What have you tried so far? By the way, did you know that The Ordinary has a guide on their website which helps you to choose the products according to your skin type? It also explains when to use them and which ones are a great combination. 

I know it can be quite tricky to buy beauty and skincare products online, but if you do your research right it can be even easier than feeling overwhelmed with all the options in a store.
