I have said this about a fair few Ordinary products before, but let’s discuss it together. Is the Ordinary great, or just a cheap beauty brand that you can safely give a miss?
The Ordinary Hyaluronic acid serum is the last of four or five products that I have tried of their’s and honestly I am wildly underwhelmed. I’m finished with all of my ordinary products now, which draws my ordinary experience/purchases to a close.
Starting off with some positives, the brand is vegan, cruelty free, sulphate and artificial fragrance free, so that is amazing. It’s also incredibly inexpensive and easily accessible and the packaging is incredibly simplistic and looks cute on your bathroom vanity.
Another thing I genuinely do love about the brand is that they essentially revolutionised the skincare world by naming their products the key ingredient. This taught beauty-newbies exactly what their product was and what key concerns it targets which 100% changed how people use skincare.
Unfortunately that’s where the positivity ends for me, the brand say that this particular product is said to provide instant hydration, is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin, due to its easy absorption and weightless texture and is infused with Vitamin B5 to boost surface hydration.
I found that it didn’t provide me with a hydration that I noticed, I also noticed that it went milky on my skin on application. Towards the end of me trying to use it up, I was applying it under my makeup before SPF and it just was not a nice base.
I’ve said a few times before that I think the Ordinary have great products for anyone who is starting out with skincare and learning about the proper scientific names of the ingredients they are using.
So if you’re starting out or wanting to learn more about ingredients, these are for you! The price point is great, at only 12.90 and available from many online retailers and in-store at Priceline.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post, A cheap beauty brand that you can safely give a miss.
Until next time,
