The Ordinary is as cult as a cult beauty brand can get. Here are the three products we think everyone should try at least once.
Every once in a while a beauty brand comes along that blows everything else out of the water. The Ordinary is one of those brands. Part of the Canadian owned Deciem company (which also created NIOD, Fountain and Stemm hair care), The Ordinary offers "Clinical Formulations with Integrity". And what that boils down to are high performance, effective products which won't break the bank. Win, win, right?
The Ordinary has a comprehensive range of skin care and beauty products (you can check them out here). But we've picked out three that we think everyone should try.
The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% €9.80
This is ideal for anyone who wants an effective anti-aging solution, without the usual associated redness or skin irritation. The gentle formula uses next-generation retinoid active technologies. As with any retinol skincare, remember to wear SPF in the morning to help keep skin protected.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 €6.80
Dehydration affects every skin type no matter what the season, and so a boost of hyaluronic acid is always welcome. With a combination of low, medium and high weight molecules of HA this gives an immediate moisture boost, leaving skin plumped and smooth.
The Ordinary Serum Foundation €6.80
Available in an impressive 21 shades, this light-medium coverage foundation is perfect for everyday wear. The formula offers a fresh feeling/looking semi-matte finish and SPF 15. We should probably mention as well... when this was set to launch, there was already a 25,000 person waiting list (no joke!).
