Testing out The Ordinary.


The brand The Ordinary. does not need to be much introduced. Famous for its affordable and effective products, the brand has grown a strong base among beauty consumers and turned over the skincare industry with they transparency in creating formulas. I got a feeling that I am literally the last person who is trying these products. Out of curiosity, I ordered three formulas which could possible improve my skin and here we go:

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%: this product with high-strength vitamin really helped my skin to look better. Started using it approximately two months ago, applying day and night, and the results were visible soon after the first week. My skin responds well to this formulation, it is much clearer with less visible pores, less oily and much more even.

“Buffet” serum:  it is a multi-peptide serum with anti-aging benefits. It leaves the skin a little bit tacky after application, but after a few minutes, the sensation is gone. I noticed that my skin is brighter and glowing and also more hydrated.

Hyaluronic acid 2% + B5: a serum developed to restore hydration. I have been using it for two last weeks and haven’t noticed any significant result. Yes, it hydrates and plumps the skin a bit, but compared to the previous two products it is not that impressive to me. Leaves the skin a bit sticky, but the stickiness disappears soon.
