Product Mentioned
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.

MOST DISAPPOINTING PRODUCT FOR ME
MOST DISAPPOINTING PRODUCT FOR ME
I absolutely adore the ordinary and this, along with their aha/bha serum, is one of their most hyped up products. Most people love The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and with the affordable price, I didn’t think twice before purchasing. The first time I used it, I broke out really bad. I couldn’t figure out what was breaking me out and I continued using this product because I didn’t think it was the culprit. After the third or fourth time of breaking out after using this, I looked through the many reviews and found that a lot of people were going through purging. I really wanted this to work for me so I continued using, even though I was sure I wasn’t purging as I was breaking out in places I have never broken out in before. After my skin only getting worse, I eventually decided to stop using, giving the product over to someone who’s skin really benefitted from it. After doing some research, I’ve come to the conclusion that the 1% zinc is what irritated my skin as I’ve used niacinamide before and it worked well for me. This experience taught me that everybody’s skin is different. What might work for me might not work for you. Always take in to consideration that the most popular and talked about products may not be for your skin and always do your research beforehand.

I’d rather get coal than the Ordinary Niacinamide. The product is supposed to purify dull and congested skin. It is supposed to help with blemishes and discoloration. The texture of the product is a little goopy. I was really excited to try this product, but unfortunately it was not for me. I used it for about 3 months and it never did anything for my skin. It made me breakout around my nose and chin. I believed it was just going to pull everything to the surface for a little and then get better, but that was not the case for me. It never got better. I personally would not recommend this product to anyone given my experience. The only thing good to me was the price which is $5.90 at Ulta The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% This is my favourite product from this brand!! I started using this in January and this is my second bottle! I only apply it on my T-Zone or I'll apply it in areas that I find myself getting more acne. This product is great for decreasing blemishes and combating congestion. I prefer this consistency because I am able to wear it both during the day and night time! This product has been another great one that has helped combat my acne! Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 My second bottle and I love it!! My skin is super dry (yes even in the summer time🙄). This product has helped me combat my dry and flaky skin! Although I am not the biggest fan of the consistency, I find it's too sticky and I don't like how it feels on my face. So, I usually only apply it at night. Unless, my skin needs an extra dose of hydration during the day. I prefer applying this product when my skin is a bit damp just because I find the product absorbs better into my skin. Overall, for myself it has been a great product. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

I just started using this about a few days ago and let me say first off, I feel like it IS making a difference in my skin but I’ve also seen some changes. I’m not sure if it’s just me or..? But I feel like when I put it on and it dries I rub it a little more in and some dead skin comes off, hadsthis happened to anyone..? or maybe my face is just dry. And I’ve seen a few small whiteheads pop up here and there and I was wondering if the serum is pushing out all the yuckiness and “purging” because they aren’t big whiteheads that come and go. It only started when I started using this product. :)

The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is one of my latest and favorite additions to my routine! My skin at times can get sensitive because I tend to get a little carried away while exfoliating. This soothes whenever my face gets a little red and really has helped regulate the oily-ness in my T zone. Did I mention it even helps with any inflamed breakouts! I saw this stuff and was skeptical at first for something that literally cost $5, but I’m very impressed with this product and will definitely be buying another. You don’t normally expect a high-quality serum that just absorbs beautifully to the skin at such a low price point.

I have never been so excited to try a product. Everyone has spoken so highly of this product that I NEEDED to try it. I heard it was great for blemishes and I am currently struggling with trying to get rid of them. The first pic is the day before I started applying it. The first time I applied it was in the PM. So I basically slept to see morning results and wow. In just an overnight my skin did NOT like this. I got many little red bumps on my face and I had not gotten any acne in over 2 month and 1/2 now. Then I applied the morning and night to see if maybe it could change the results. And it did, the little red bumps were gone, so I thought. Two massive volcanos popped up on my face a day after, I thought “maybe I applied too much” so gave it two more days and ended up getting more. So now that i just recently stopped, the upcoming pimples are no longer there. I really do wish this product worked for me. It feels great on the skin. But my skin is just too complicated :(
