The Ordinary Lactic Acid

The Ordinary Lactic Acid

One of my wishes to try for 2019 were some good exfoliants. I had always used physical exfoliants before and they worked well enough, but I had also heard they aren’t the best for your skin or the environment. So I decided to try a chemical exfoliator instead. With my skin being quite sensitive, I was reluctant at first, but then read up on acids and their uses and found that a lactic acid is the gentlest kind and great to get started. These are my experiences so far.

I feel it’s been some time since I last reviewed a skincare product and that’s easily explained: I just wasn’t trying anything new. With skincare I love using up what I have before opening up a new product. Not only is that more sustainable, it also means the product cannot expire before you can use it up and you really get to try a product. Skincare simply takes a longer time to try out as it can take as long as 2 months for a skincare products to work with your skin and that you start seeing what it does for you. So over the summer I steadily worked on using up some of my products and by now, I feel I have tried The Ordinary’s Rose Hip See Face Oil enough to give you my thoughts.

The Ordinary “B” Oil

Face oil is probably one of my favorite skincare products to use and I love trying them. One of my most recent trials is The Ordinary’s “B” Oil. This isn’t necessarily one of the most raved about products by the affordable skincare brand, but it was one that came onto my radar as it is a face oil that should work for many different skin types. Because every skin needs hydration and one of the best ways to do that is via a face oil.

The Ordinary Light Coverage Serum Foundation 1.1 N Fair Neutral review swatch

The Ordinary is not only an affordable skincare brand, they also do some other products. One of those products is a range of 2 different foundations: the coverage and serum foundations. The coverage foundation promises to be more full coverage, but since I prefer a light to medium coverage foundation I decided to try the serum foundation.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid

A skincare brand I had been wanting to try for some time is The Ordinary. A while ago, the Internet was abuzz with how well this affordable skincare brand should work. The idea is simple: simple ingredients that are stripped down to its core at an affordable price point that just does what it says in the tin. I finally got my hands on some of their products when I last was in London. How did I fare with The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5?
