Keeping my skin healthy is a huge priority in my beauty routine. For years I struggled with horrible acne, and it taught me the true importance of skincare! There's just one problem, I can't afford luxury products or treatments and I've had a really hard time finding quality skincare items in my budget. And then, the answer to my prayers appeared on the internet: The Ordinary. (Okay, there are a few brands that I use and love on the daily besides this one, but it's pretty great guys!)
When I first started seeing my fav bloggers posting about this brand I dismissed it pretty quickly. With it's minimalistic look and diverse array of luxe products, I quickly assumed it would be expensive. I couldn't have been more wrong! The majority of their products are under $10! YES. You read that right, under $10!! The Ordinary is a branch under the umbrella company DECEIM, the company was founded by "skin care enthusiasts who were fed up with the lack of integrity in the beauty industry." Their products and treatments are all made of high quality, clinically proven ingredients sold at a fair price, resulting in honest skincare.
The Ordinary has a huge range of products, all of which are free of parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, animal oils, benzalkonium chloride, coal tar dyes, formaldehyde, mercury, and oxybenzone! The Ordinary also has a strict no animal testing policy and a large majority of their products are also vegan! I picked up a few things to try and so far I'm loving it all.
My favorite product, without a doubt, is the Caffine Solution 5% + ECGC drops. Their claim is to diminish dark and puffy under-eye circles, although I haven't noticed a huge difference in my dark circles the drops definitely help with puffiness! I also have been loving the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA. It's working ingredient, Hyaluronic acid is said to boost the skin's moisture content and does wonders for my dry skin. Finally, the 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil is a dream! This stuff works miracles overnight adding so much life and moisture back to my dry patches!
Have you tried The Ordinary? I'd love to hear about your fav products!
