The Ordinary products you SHOULD MIX them to boost more Vitamin C.
I am going to give you a general idea of what you can mix, and I am also going to share my favorite pairings that I like to use in my skincare routines. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA I want to share with you today that I see results with, and that worked together. I love to incorporate The Ordinary hyaluronic acids 2% + b5. It is a hydration product, so this will give you a lot of hydration and moisture. So if you have dry skin, this is a serum that you want to incorporate into your skincare routine. It can be used in morning and night, and this can be paired with anything. You can pair this with retinol, and you also can pair this with an acid. I like to add this for extra hydration, especially when I am using those higher strength products. Still, I especially like to use this in the morning in combination with my Vitamin C. The vitamin C that I want to use from The Ordinary is The Ordinary ascorbic acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%. So I do like to use these two products in the same routine in the morning. And if there is a day that I don’t feel like using The Ordinary Vitamin C, and I am using a different brand. I will pair my hyaluronic acids with a different type of vitamin c, which is completely fine. So, I love this pairing, and I love how this makes my skin feel. After using this pairing, I see a lot of brightness in my skin. And I love the way that the Hyaluronic Acids+b5 gives my skin that beautiful glow, so when I am wearing makeup on top, I feel like this serum shines through and gives my skin an elegant dewy, youthful look. And I think that is beautiful in skincare is to have a subtle sheen to your skin. I think it looks healthy. So if you are looking for a good pairing and you want to boost your Vitamin.

The Process !! Everyone !!! The Process !!
Hey everyone !! Since you’ve guys last heard from me , I had a completely different skin care routine.. I just came to tell you guys how much I love THE ORDINARY!!! Thanks to the ordinary , I’m feeling better than ever & so good with my healthy , glowing skin. It’s only up from here!!!!! My new skin care routine is below : I start out using my Cetaphil - Gentle Skin Cleanser mixing it with YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser I then pay my face dry with a PAPER TOWEL. I stopped using clean cloths like rags or towels... they seem to work better. I after go in with my The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% After using, The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% ThenThe Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA I then go in with my Tretinoin 0.025% cream , mixing it with my The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane After this using my Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream mixing this with The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil In the morning , I mix in my sunscreen with the Rose hip oil & my moisturizing cream , because my sunscreen which is CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 for Body with Zinc Oxide gives off a very white cast. At night I just moisturize with the listed above products . At night I also use my AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay AFTER cleansing my face . Then I go in with my serums & retinols. The Ordinary really has become such a life changer . Finally , Making me feel comfortable in my own skin. I hope this helps anyone who is going through acne. You’re not alone. Don’t let your acne define you! You’re beautiful!! Thank you everyone💓 I hope you guys keep helping me & stay by my side during my journey!!! Have a blessed day!!! Much love!

The Ordinary products for acne prone skin✨
Th Ordinary has been one of my favorite brands for some time now. I love trying new products from them knowing it won’t break the bank. I previously had a post about a few of their serums but I’ve tried to branch out since. Here’s my experience with a few new TO products as well as some of my all time favorites: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution - such a versatile product! I’ve used it for my underarms as deodorant, sometimes my feet to get rid of dead skin cells, my butt for buttne and lastly, on my face as a gentle exfoliator! I love it for all of these uses and at under $9 for 8fl oz I think it’s an amazing deal! The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA - This moisturizer is okay. It’s too thick for my oily skin and leaves a matte finish, which isn’t something I particularly like. When my skin gets too dry I love using it because it instantly moisturizes but it’s more of a spot moisturizer for me than an all face one. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - absolute favorite! I’m on to my second bottle now. It definitely burns or stings sometimes no matter how many times you’ve used it but I’m okay with it since it does such a great job at exfoliating. I only keep it for up to 10 min and use it 1-2 times a week, mostly once now though since I don’t want to further dry my face. The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane - this product did absolutely nothing for my face. I used it for a couple of months and my skin would refuse to absorb it, so it stayed pretty oily which I hated. I also saw no benefits to my under eye fine lines. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - this is my third bottle of this serum and this time I opted for the 60ml one as opposed to the 30ml. I use it daily and once I got to figure out the exact amount my face needs, it’s been working wonders. My face feels brighter and smoother which is why I’ve continued repurchasing. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% - purchased this product to help with hyperpigmentation and I am still to see any major differences. My skin feels better overall but I’m not sure whether it’s solely because of this product. It’s a non oily cream which is a plus for me, I’ll continue to use it until it’s done but not sure whether I’ll repurchase.

Current Favourite Night Serums 🌌
I’ve really been loving these 2 night serums lately! And it’s pretty hard to resist The Ordinary’s prices. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I’ll be honest.. I first got this serum probably a year ago and I never really got into it until now. I had really bad acne at the time and got frustrated with anything that wasn’t giving me instant improvement so I think I tried it for about a week and then gave up on it. But recently I felt like I should give it a second chance and now I love it!! It is keeping my face clear and even and I really enjoy how it goes on. I’ll be repurchasing this from now on!! The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA I did a lot of research on The Ordinary’s products lately in search of a new favourite. Mandelic Acid is advertised as an AHA similar to glycolic acid - only more gentle and suited for sensitive skin. This product also has hyaluronic acid to replenish moisture. This combo feels AMAZING on my skin. It instantly feels so smooth and soft. I love that it is a chemical exfoliant that I don’t have to worry about it irritating or drying out my skin and I can use it every night. It is smoothing and evening my skin out and I really enjoy and look forward to using it
The Ordinary-Mandelic Acid 10% + HA
The Ordinary, perfect Mix & Match for Brightening and Hyperpigmentation
Skin Type: Combination, oily T-zone, acne-prone The ordinary becomes so popular recently. You can find any functional ingredients you want from this brand. The effect is even more tempting, but don't follow the trend. Before you are trying to but any products from the ordinary, you need to know your needs and skin type, then to find the product corresponding to the demand. Sometimes, the ingredients in this product are useful but may not suit your skin. Since the ordinary used the simplest ingredient themselves, many of their products are not suitable for sensitive skin. THE ORDINARY Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA I know Alpha is an ingredient that aims at brightening. I just started using this product and I am very impressed! My dark spots & uneven skin tones are already fading! I’m acne prone skin, so acne scar is my headache problem. This serum faded my scars visibly. It’s a lightweight gel type face serum. It’s water-based, so it is easy to apply and blend. I don’t like the scent, but I would love to keep using it because of the function. Unprotected sun exposure would cause dark spots and become darker. So I insist on using sunscreen after applying it. THE ORDINARY Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% After using Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, here comes Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%. It helps to brighten the skin tone and will help to reduce the appearance of textually irregularities and blemishes. I personally recommend it to oily and acne-prone skin. I can feel tingling after using it. The 10% concentration of Azelaic acid is too high for sensitive skin. I only use this match when I endure breakouts.
The Ordinary-Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA
The Ordinary is the BOMB!
I am sure everyone has already heard of The Ordinary right? At first, I would watch YouTube videos about skincare online and see this brand name being thrown around. Another skincare guru YouTuber uses The Ordinary and basically promotes it to the T, calling it “the holy grail of affordable skincare.” So what exactly is The Ordinary and does it actually work? The Ordinary is a subsidiary of Deciem who also sells high-quality and high-end skincare products. Products are made in Canada and are certified cruelty-free, which means they do not test on animals and does not sell in China. Note to cruelty-free/vegan consumers: please check that any brand you buy has the verified Bunny/Does Not Test on Animals label. Also, make sure the company doesn’t sell their products in China. China has a mandatory law that makes it required to test all products on animals before selling there. Be aware. At the beginning, I was skeptic to try TO’s products simply due to the fact the prices were so low. Majority of brands price their products mark their products up to 200% due to their name and extensive list of ingredients they use. A lot of cruelty-free skincare I’ve looked up will cost minimum $20 for a small bottle or tube. I’m a student who only works part-time, so I’m not willing to spend $50 on a small item that might not even work well on my sensitive skin. Current issues: hyperpigmentation, dry skin, contact dermatitis (sensitive skin), uneven texture, redness, occasional oiliness, loss of elasticity in the eye area, fine lines, clogged pores and light acne. I looked up TO’s prices and I was like “wow!” One ampoule can cost as low as $4-5 CAD. I was amazed, so I decided to buy two things. I bought The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + 5% Zinc serum and Pycnogenol 5%. The niacinamide zinc serum is water-based and a clear colour. It doesn’t really have much of a scent (if any). It’s not as oily as I expected it to be. This is used for dark spots, acne scars and pores. It can also help manage light acne as well. This isn’t a product meant to cure worse acne. I massage this into my skin this after cleansing and toning in the morning. Pycnogenol serum is pure antioxidant with a brownish red colour, in an amber bottle. It smells slightly like acetic acid (white vinegar), but the smell is not obnoxious. It does have a slight oily feel, but so far it doesn’t feel gross. I put it after the niacinamide. Put this after water-based serums and before any heavy oils or creams. I add moisturizer/sunscreen after this serum. The results are amazing. The niacinamide serum has made my skin less oily! I also have more moisture and my redness is going down. Pycnogenol has helped my skin feel softer as well. They don’t really help my fine lines, at least not yet. Same with my freckles and scars. I think I didn’t use them long enough. I also purged using them at first. I recommend these products to you all seriously! Don’t knock it till you rock it. :)
The Ordinary-Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Guess Which One Is The Game Changing Niacinamide Serum?😆😆
Every one talks about Niacinamide these days. I bought two hyped Niacinamide products, just to see which one is better. They are The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and Hylamide - Pore Control which also contains 10% niacinamide. Both of these products are from the same company. As for price, both of te 2 products are quite affordable. TO-$5.90 for 30ml Hylamide-$14 for 30ml Effects: The Ordinary Niacinamide focuses on minimizing the appearance of pores and oil control (it's especially suitable for oily skin), while Hylamide Pore Control focuses more on minimizing the appearance of pores and moisturizing (for dry skin). I almost finished them in just two to three weeks. Experience: Niacinamide irritates a little but it's tolerable, and it doesn't cause allergies or skin reactions. Hylamide Pore Control feels better and does a much better job at moisturizing and minimizing the appearance of pores compared with The Ordinary Niacinamide. I will definitely repurchase Hylamide Pore Control. I have dry skin, so the oil control effect of The Ordinary Niacinamide is not really useful for me. I prefer Hylamide Pore Control. Hylamide is originally a higher grade product compared with The Ordinary series of products. If you're after a better result and feeling, you can try buying the Hylamide or NIOD series of products, but if price is your main concern, try The Ordinary. I hope this is helpful, if you have any question, let me know🙂🙂
The Ordinary-Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
Budget skincare for acne/sensitive skin ‼️
WE’RE NOT PLAYING AROUND! You have acne. You want to help it. But your on a budget...I FEEL you. Before we begin, I just want to say: acne cannot be healed overnight. There is no safe, effective way to get rid of acne in a short period of time. Most acne treatments and preventative treatments take a long time to work. Keep that in mind! These are my favorite budget products (UNDER $10) to treat and prevent acne on sensitive skin. The Ordinary is a budget-friendly brand that spends little to no money on marketing or fancy branding. I love how affordable and accessible they are to consumers—they’re available at both Sephora and Ulta. Here are my thoughts on each product: Products: The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane Discovery: Lactic: I discovered this while researching which AHAs are best for anti-aging and acne treatment. My initial thought was to go for a budget-friendly brand like The Ordinary. Retinoid: I had been interested in trying a Retinoid or retinol for a while but wanted to start slow, so I went with this formula which is formulated specifically for sensitive skin. How long have they been in my routine? Lactic: 3 weeks Retinoid: 7 months When do I use these in my routine? Lactic: PM routine after cleansing + toning, before moisturizing Retinoid: PM routine usually mixed into my moisturizer or another facial oil WHY do these work for sensitive skin? Lactic: the lactic acid in this formula is only at 5% meaning it’s a great starter formula for beginners OR it’s a gentler formula for people who have used acids before. It also includes hyaluronic acid which is a hydrating ingredient to help this not dry out your skin as much. Retinoid: this specific formula is only 2% and it is a Granactive Retinoid which is formulated specifically for sensitive skin, to not make your skin peel or deal any real damage. It did take 3 months for me to see a real difference in my skin texture but I couldn’t live without this in my routine now! It’s also suspended in squalane which is a super moisturizing facial oil—thus helping not to dry out the skin too much. See a pattern here? Price: Lactic: $6.50 Retinoid: $9.60 Rating: Lactic: 5/5 Retinoid: 5/5
The Ordinary-Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane
The ordinary vitamin C Honest review
Vitamin C 23% + HA Spheres 2% 5.80$ CAD & USD Texture: Comes out the tube as a cream but as you rub it it becomes like a balm. It has a grainy textures. Claims: “Brightens the skin tone and reduces the appearance of signs of aging” - deciem’s website Why did I get this product? I got this product because I’ve read about all the benefits that vitamin C offers, since I’m dealing with post inflammatory hyperpigmentation I decided to get it. My experience with this product: Let’s go back to what I said about the texture it feels grainy whenever I use it I feel like I’m scratching my face and tearing my skin. When you rub it on skin it turns into a balm and it made my skin so greasy. I didn’t not like the packaging whatsoever I feel like whenever I try to get some product out of the tube so much comes out. If you have sensitive skin this is not for you since the vitamin C is at such a pourcentage it might burn your skin. I didn’t notice any difference within my skin while using this product. While using this product my skin reacted badly to it and started breaking out and now I’m dealing with the dark spots that those breakouts left. My overall opinion. As much as I love the ordinary this was one of the product that I personally did not like using and will probably not repurchase ever again. Follow @skincarewithshely on Instagram for more reviews.
