Looking to up your skincare game but not looking to break the bank? Don’t worry, The Ordinary’s got you covered! Here’s my review.
Y’all, I am a mother of two in my mid-30s – you better believe I take skincare seriously. Thankfully, I began taking care of my skin in my mid-20s. Right now, maintenance is critical in keeping my skin fresh and youthful. If you’re new around here, homegirl loves skincare products. Maybe even more so than I love makeup. Essentially, I’d love to ditch the makeup and feel comfortable with my bare face. While I’m not 100% there yet, I am proud of how my skin looks.
However, upping your skincare game can get expensive. It’s easy to drop some major moola on products, especially if you’re anything like me and enjoy testing things out. Luckily, about six months ago I stumbled across The Ordinary, an insanely affordable brand you can find at Sephora and Ulta. Known for its single-ingredient-driven products, the brand carries products under $20, many under $14! Keep reading for my thoughts on the 3 products I recommend.
The Ordinary Product Review
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 // If you’re looking for some serious glow, you’re in luck! I’ve noticed a major change in my skin as it relates to how oily I used to get. I use this once or twice a week at night and have noticed how my face now appears dewy versus oily. This product definitely locks in moisture.
The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution // Did someone say at-home blood facial? Sure, why not! This “peel” exfoliates your skin to clear up clogged pores and dead skin. I noticeably had brighter and smoother after one use. This product was a major game-changer for my skincare routine. I apply for 10 minutes once a week.
The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil // I love a good face oil and at this price, I cannot recommend this product enough! It’s great for nourishing my skin, yet its lightweight. This oil is the perfect consistency, not too thick but not too light that it doesn’t feel effective. I absolutely love the way my skin feels the next morning after application.
