The Ordinary has changed my routine 😊

Sade.s.a
Ive always has decent skin but would get random breakouts. I also started breaking out when stressed and was having some dullness and dehydration! To jump in : The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
I really like this toning solution! It doesn’t dry me out and is actually quite moisturizing. It’s great if you experience irritation because the aloe vera in it really provides soothing properties for irritated skin. It helps with gentle exfoliation when I use it at night and I get the exfoliating cotton pads from Target and that helps add some extra penetration to my skin! My face has visibly gotten a more even texture. The only reason it has 4 instead of 5 stars is because you can only use it at night because it doesn’t react well to sun exposure. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
I am in love with this peel! It visibly improves blemishes and has lightened my dark marks a bit! I love that it’s something I can do at home and still get my deep exfoliation I need. My skin feels and looks radiant. I will say start only using this once a week as it can sting a bit. After you feel you have adjusted you can up it to two times a week depending on how you need it! I’ve currently upgraded to two times a week. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
If you suffer from any sort of dryness this is for you! I’m combination skin but can get dry around my cheek area and just wanted overall more moisture. This is a God send. From the first day I used it my skin was so hydrated. Because Hyaluronic Acid absorbs so much in water this is best used on wet/damp skin. I use it after cleansing AM and PM. I put my moisturizer on directly after so that way more moisture is being sucked in to my skin. Definitely a game changer. The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
I wanted to love this product but I really just like it. For my skin it seems to make me feel too greasy. I use it as my step before my moisturizer and it was just ok. I hate to feel oily and this can make my skin feel that way if I use any more than one drop. Now I mix one drop maybe two in my moisturizer at night. It’s less overwhelming for my skin that way. Once I started using it that way it gave an extra boost of hydration to my nightly routine. All in All has really helped my skin! SIDE NOTE: All of these products are vegan and cruelty free!

Textured skin, bumps not going away!
I have sensitive combination skin so I’m very aware of which products I put on my face. I struggle with fungal acne properly known as malassezia folliculitis and they’re a result of an overgrowth of yeast. I never wear makeup but I’m so embarrassed by it!!! The current products I’m using are: HERBIVORE - Jasmine Green Tea Oil Control Toner PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane For AM and PM. These products work as they’re controlling fungal acne but it’s not clearing it. My biggest skin concern is blackheads, texture and dullness. Any recommendations?

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 4
Hey ya’ll! In part 4 of Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines we’re reviewing @Raks and @juliachristine’s skincare routines. Starting with @Rakswho reached out to me via Cherie message because she started skincare about a year ago because of her upcoming wedding. She starts by cleansing with theThursday Plantation - Tea Tree Face Wash Foam which costs $8.99 for 5.1 fl oz. This cleanser is very basic. It has tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. My issue is with the eucalyptus oil, which is a very irritating essential oil right up there with lemon oil and peppermint oil. If this doesn’t irritate your skin then it’s a great cleanser, but I can’t recommend it to those with sensitive skin. Then she goes in with 4 serums. First is thepura d'or - 20% Vitamin C Serum which costs $14.99 for 4 fl oz. This is a really good serum. It has aloe vera juice, glycerin, jojoba oil, and argan oil which are hydrating ingredients, and then it has hylaronic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C. I love it! Then she uses#The Ordinary - Nicinamide Serum[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $5.90 for 1 fl oz. We’ve talked a lot about this serum, it’s very good. Next is the#Tree Of Life - Hylaronic acid serum[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $10.95 for 1 fl oz. I don’t like this serum. It started off good with hylaronic acid, aloe vera juice, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, but it contains way too many Essential oils and irritating extracts. And her final serum is theSkinMedica - LYTERA 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum which costs $130.90 for 2 fl oz, which is very expensive. This is not worth the price. It has nicinamide and glycerin, and then some not very researched acids. I don’t recommend continuing use of this serum. Then to moisturize she goes in with theOLAY - Regenerist Regenerating Day Cream which costs $29.99 for 1.7 fl oz. I don’t like this moisturizer. Let’s start with some positives. It has nicinamide, glycerin, and Vitamin B3. Now it has a lot of bad ingredients also. It has Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which is a harsh cleansing agent, as well as fragrance being the 6th ingredient. The she uses a Neutrogena sunscreen, and occasionally usesThe Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which costs $7.20 for 1 fl oz. This is a great exfoliant. I think @Raks is using too many serums. I would stick to only the Pura D’or and The Ordinary serum, and ditch the other two. Keep the cleanser, and maybe try a different moisturizer. You asked for mineral sunscreen reccomendations for dark skin tones that don’t have a white cast, so I got you girl! I have light skin, but I did some research and I’d recommend the#First Aid Beauty - Weightless Mineral SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $34 for 1.5 fl oz, and the #Biossance - Squalane Zinc Sheer SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $30 for 1.7 fl oz. Both of these have minimal white cast, and Skincare by Hyram recommends them. Next is @juliachristine’s night routine. She starts off by cleansing with the #Vanicream - Unscented Gentle Cleanser[products]#[ThreeStars] witch costs $8.99 for 8 fl oz. This a nice basic cleanser with glycerin. Next she uses the#OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $84 for .7 fl oz. This cream has tretinoin which is a Vitamin A derivative which can treat acne, as well as retinol which also Vitamin A. I don’t think it’s worth the price, but it’s okay. Next she uses the #The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%[products]#[FourStars] which costs $7.99 for 1 fl oz. Along with azelaic acid, it has dimethicone which is a great moisturizer for dry skin. Next she uses theCeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin which costs $17.99 for 15 fl oz. Y’all know I love this product! Finally she finishes off with theVERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream witch costs $17.99 for .5 fl oz. Eye cream is definitely not necessary but this one is great! It has glycerin, algae extract, and olive oil which are hydrating, along with shea butter and a blend of peptides which can help firm the skin and increase collagen production which can help reduce fine lines around the eyes. Overall @juliachristine your routine looks great! That’s it for this post please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment your opinions on these products, and follow me for similar content. Upcoming posts include a 1 month Curology review and unnecessary skincare steps you don’t need. -Mae

Morning routine updated
Ok I’ve made a few changes to my routine and sometimes I keep switching a few things in and out depending on the day.... I start with The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution which I love. I think glycolic acid is an important ingredient to have in your routine for oily skin and wrinkles and even acne too. I always use insta natural - Zinc Vitamin C Serum but I go between also using insta natural - Age Defying & Skin Clearing Serum which I love for acne, insta natural - Dark Spot Corrector I don’t notice a huge difference with this but it has great ingredients or insta natural - Skin Brightening Serum, Anti-Aging that has alpha arbutin to help brighten dark spots or hyperpigmentation. So I alternate with those! Love using COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence to have a dewy glow and helps with skin texture and pigmentation issues I’ve recently added The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% to help with acne and oily skin and love it too. I top with a thin layer of Clindamycin gel and then moisturizer which I alternate also between a few different ones. BEEKMAN 1802 - Bloom Cream Daily Probiotic Moisturizer has great ingredients but a funky old woman smell I do not like, thank goodness I only have a sample size.... Honest has a great soothing moisturizer I’ve tried and also ARBONNE has a great calming moisturizer as well as a lightweight jelly moisturizer I go between. Then I do a few drops of The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% and I’m done. I usually let it sit for awhile or at least a good 5 minutes while I do my eye makeup and eyeliner before I use any face makeup but I love the texture of my skin so far using this all together.

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 3
Hey y’all! Today’s post is part 3 of 4 of my Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines series. In today’s post we’re covering @geralorentas and @robynkenner ! Starting with @geralorentas. She starts out by cleansing with theCeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser which costs $13 for 8 fl oz. This cleanser has super gentle exfoliating agents, as well as glycerin and Hylaronic acid which are very hydrating. Next she uses theRENÉE ROULEAU - Rapid Response Detox Toner which costs $41 for 6 fl oz. This toner, as far as toners go, is pretty good. Its main draws are Salicylic acid and Lactic acid which are great for dealing with acne. Next she uses theSKIN GRAMMAR - Super Good Repair Essence which costs $38 for 5.7 fl oz. This essence has Nicinamide and glycerin, as well as a ton of ceramides. Unfortunately it has orange peel oil. Citrus oils a extracts are extremely irritating to the skin because they are acidic, so I have to say no to this essence. Next she uses the RENÉE ROULEAU - Vitamin C&E Treatment which costs $69 for 1 fl oz. It has glycerin, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, but again it has citrus oils and extracts which make this another no for me. Then to moisturize she goes in with the#Dr. zenovia - Peptide + Ceramide Moisturizer[products]#[FourStars] which costs $79 for 1.7 fl oz. This moisturizer has ceramides and glycerin. Finally she goes in with theLA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Anti-shine Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF50+ which I couldn’t find the price for. It’s a really good basic sunscreen. So that’s @geralorentas routine. For her I would recommend getting rid of the essence and the treatment, but otherwise the products seem great! Moving on to @robynkenner. She starts with a double cleanse, and we’ll talk in a minute about what she’s doing wrong. She starts with the The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser which costs $7.90 for 1 fl oz. The main ingredients in this are squalane and glycerin. A lot of people complain that this cleanser is so gentle is barely cleans, but it seems to work for @robynkenner. Then she uses theMurad - Clarifying Cleanser which costs $32 for 6.75 fl oz. The main draw for this product is Salicylic acid, but again it’s a no because of citrus oils and extracts as well as fragrance. Now I mentioned that she’s double cleansing wrong. Double cleansing isn’t just using 2 cleansers, it’s specifically using an oil based cleanser and then a water based cleanser. (Check out my post on double cleansing for more information) In this case, @robynkenner is using 2 water based cleansers which can be stripping to the skin, and isn’t considered double cleansing. She mentioned she started doing this because her skin didn’t feel clean with just the first cleanse, and I think this might be because the Squalane Cleanser is too gentle. Next she uses theNeutrogena - Hydro Boost Eye Gel-Cream which costs $25 for .5 fl oz. First off, eye cream should be at the end of a routine. The eye cream itself is great though. Next she usesThe Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution which costs $8.70 for 8 fl oz. I talked about this product in pt. 1, but in short it’s really good. And finally she uses the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream which costs $36 for 6 fl oz. This is a nice super thick basic moisturizer. So in conclusion @robynkenner, I’d try to find a new cleanser, then just add your eye cream after moisturizer instead of early in the routine. That’s all for pt. 3! Please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment below your favorite cleansers to help out @robynkenner, and follow me to join the family and for similar content. -Mae

The Best Advice For Choosing Skincare Products
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽‍♀️ So I’ve recommended a lot of products and thought I’d share some advice on how how I select skincare products these days. ☺️ Thanks to @babesandbeauty on Instagram for the advice. Products that you consistently use I noticed that I consistently use TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum which has Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E as my day Serum. I also have The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for my night routine. I’ve started using Truskin’s Super Serum at night and now alternate between using a natural Retinol or Vitamin A Moisturiser and the Truskin Super Serum which has Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Retinol. I now can’t live without my FORMULA 10.0.6 - Rise of the Foam Blemish Busting Cleanser I use this because of the salicylic acid and hemp oil as part of my double cleansing routine. I’m currently trialing products for my first cleanse. 😄 I noticed the ingredients are ideal for my issues which are rough texture, larger than average pores, dullness and my wrinkles and fine lines. For reducing the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles I ❤️ hyaluronic acid!!!! Products that are ideal for your skin type I’m a little lucky in the fact that I have combination skin and can use a range of products for my issues. Treating the wrong skin type can lead to irritated skin, breakouts and premature aging. Choosing the correct skin care routine for your skin type is essential for making your skin appear youthful and healthy. Products that do not cause irritation to your skin barrier Our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have. Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. Using the proper skin care products for your skin type can help preserve this important protective layer. ☺️ Products that fit your budget and life The Ordinary creators have totally changed how we think about and buy skin care. Its allowed us to understand ingredients and offered them in ridiculously cheap formulas. It’s championed transparency in an industry that wants you to think expensive products are better. Nothing costs more than $20. In fact, the majority of it ranges at less than $10. This is largely in part thanks to The Ordinary's dedication to transparency, resulting in prices that aren't significantly marked up. Although if you can afford to spend $150 I’d recommend purchasing a Serum rather than a cleanser or moisturiser. Drop me a line about what you consider when you purchase skincare products. Is it the beautiful packaging, ingredient list or that you just saw a review and want to try it. ☺️ Have a wonderful day or evening Jade 🥂

When hydration is needed 💦
I am a dry skinned girl so I am always on the look out for hydrators and moisturizers. This is especially the case as I like to use actives in my routine and they can further dry out my skin. Hyaluronic acid is one of my go to ingredients as it draws moisture into my skin and it works well with other ingredients. The ordinary offers this serum which is great as it is super affordable and it works well with my skin. What is it: This is a hyaluronic acid serum with 3 different weighted molecules so that it can penetrate and hydrate different layers if the skin. Hyaluronic acids is a humectant meaning it absorbs moisture from the air and draws it into the skin. This serum also has b5 which helps nourish and soften the skin. Texture: This is a goopy and cloudy serum that is easily absorbed into my dry skin. Price: This sells at Sephora for $6.80 cad for 1 oz or $12.20 cad for 2oz How I use this: I use this along with my steamer to make sure that the air is moisture rich in order to draw moisture to my skin. This ensures I get the best result. Pros 👍: affordable 2 sizes available accessible effective cruelty free 🐰 Cons 👎: some people don’t like the texture you shouldn’t over use hyaluronic acid (check other products) The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 this is a super simple serum that has really helped my dry skin

All about The Ordinary
Since starting my skin care routine in 2019, I have found myself to love The Ordinary skincare line. I have pictured my 3 favorite products from their line currently: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution is a must for toner in your skincare routine! Glycolic acid is an AHA used to exfoliate the skin, removing the outermost layer of skin on your face to reveal newer, brighter skin. It’s usually used to treat scarring, skin discoloration and even to help with the process of aging. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% As I stated before, the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum is my holy grail for serums. This serum helps reduce skin congestion while balancing the sebum production in your face ( basically controls the oils in your skin). Some more benefits of this serum is the reduction of pore “size” and even reduces the redness you’re skin can produce during and after the cleansing of your skin! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution This peeling solution is a must in my skin care. This is another great form of exfoliation as the chemical peel will bring fourth your new, brightening skin after the first use! I use this product if I have a bad break out or too much texture on my face! Overall, The Ordinary skin care line doesn’t have to be expensive to work miracles! The Ordinary only uses necessary ingredients in their products, keeping the price of them low. I would 11/10 recommend these products, let alone the whole skin care line!

The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
The Ordinary: Direct Acids
The Ordinary: Direct Acids
Who doesn’t love a good acid? These are the current ones I own by The Ordinary. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution ➕ Glycolic acid toner is so nice. I reach for this multiple times a week. It’s perfect to even out skin tone, texture, and to remove that extra makeup you may have missed while cleansing. This is so affordable and also still gentle on the skin at 7% glycolic acid. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% ➕ I don’t reach for this acid as often, not because I don’t enjoy it, but because it’s not easily available in Canada. I ordered it from the UK and it cost me almost 3x the price. I do enjoy using it as spot treatment. It’s perfect for brightening and improves skin texture. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ➕ This is a stronger peel. Works like a mask where you apply it for no more than 10 minutes and wash off. Your skin is softer and smoother after. This isn’t an acid peel for beginners or those with really sensitive skin as the acid contents is quite a bit higher. This contains 5 acids: glycolic, lactic, citric, salicylic, & tartaric. The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA ➕Lactic acid is a high-strength superficial peel. It exfoliates and brightens the skin. This is a more serum-like texture. It comes in 5% or 10%. Really nice product in my opinion; provides quick results for smooth skin :) The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA ➕ This is by far my favourite acid. It’s a superficial dermal peel as well and it’s more gentle than other AHAs. It’s more gentle because it has larger molecules and say glycolic acid, which in turn allows it to penetrate the skin slower. The Ordinary offers more direct acids, such a salicylic acid, but these are the ones I own and enjoy.

I bought a bunch of The Ordinary and here is my fav👍🏻&meh👎🏻
I bought a bunch of The Ordinary and here is my fav👍🏻&meh👎🏻
I bought a bunch of The Ordinary just to see if they are actually good. Here are my favs and mehs. Fav: 💓💓💓 1) The Ordinary - Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% Effects: Anti-oxidating and brightens skin complexion Evaluation: I have used SkinCeuticals PREVENT C E Ferulic serum in the past, but it didn't feel as good as The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%. This Resveratrol is a very niche product. Someone gave it to me but I didn't care too much about it at first. After using it for a while, I realized it brightened my dull skin. How To Use It: It has an oily texture, so you can treat it as a serum if you have dry or combination-dry skin and you can also mix it with a toner if you have oily skin. 2) The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Effects: It cleans acne and scrubs off dead skin cells, and it's great as a daily chemical peel Evaluation: It's a little pungent but the results are really good. After using this toning solution, the bumps on my nasal wings are almost gone. How To Use It: I first used it 4 times a week, but went on to use it 2 to 3 times a week when my skin condition improved. After washing my face, I'll dab some of this toning solution on a cotton pad and wipe it across my face and neck. Avoid using it around your eyes and use it only once a day. 3) The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Effects: Reduces swelling and dark circles Evaluation: It does a great job at helping to reduce swelling. I went to bed late the night before which gave me a swollen face and eyes, so I used it on my entire face. You can see an obvious reduction in swelling in just a short time. How To Use It: Normally, I use it as an eye cream. I only use it on my entire face for special occasions. 4) The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA Effects: Eliminates bumps and dead skin cells, and can be used as a daily chemical peel Evaluation: Lactic acid is much more gentle than glycolic acid but the result is not as obvious. Lactic acid also feels better to use compared with glycolic acid, so I'll definitely repurchase it. If you have sensitive skin, you can start with a 5% concentration of lactic acid. How To Use It: I'll dab some of this lactic acid on a cotton pad and wipe it across my face and neck but not around my eyes. I also avoid using it on my cheeks. Meh: 💔💔💔 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Effect: Whitening Evaluation: I applied sufficient sunscreen but still didn't see any effect in terms of skin brightening. It also becomes pasty, so I won't repurchase it again! I hope this is helpful. How do you like The Ordinary? 😜

Title: Affordable serums from The Ordinary
Title: Affordable serums from The Ordinary
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 What I love about The Ordinary is that it has become a cult beauty brand on Instagram because of its inclusivity. It lets everyone discover the goodness of hyaluronic acid and salicylic acid, for example, as they make these products affordable for everyone to try.  And so did I.. I bought a couple of other serums alongside The Buffet, which sadly didn't work for my skin, to try.  I had a couple of mismatches with The Ordinary until I came across this bottle. It’s suuuuper hydrating but doesn’t feel greasy on the skin. My skin feels amazing when I layer it on top of my toner, essence, and other serums. I recently discovered that my skin loves it when I mix this with the Biologique Recherche Collagène Marin. I swear my face feels soft and smooth. And the best part is, it’s only $6!!  The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution Since I have a dry combination type of skin, I need to chemically scrub it so a fresh, healthier layer will come out and make me look 18 again. This is the role of acids. I’m such a nerd when it comes to skincare; I love reading how ingredients work and what are their roles really.  I bought this bottle together with my other The Ordinary hauls. So far, I love it. It’s extra helpful with my pores in the cheeks. I notice some differences in their appearance. They look smaller now as compared to about 2 months ago. I use this serum twice a week and during nighttime only. I like layering it with Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum to hydrate my skin after this acid solution. Definitely a must try!  The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Solution

The Ordinary First Impressions
The Ordinary First Impressions
I finally received my first products from The Ordinary in the mail today!! I originally placed this order on May 6th but due to COVID-19 delays in Canada Post it took a pretty long time to get here... But I am so excited my products are finally here!!! Disclaimer!: This is only the first night I am using these products, I also wasn’t able to order the peeling solution because you cannot purchase it in Canada due to its strength. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution My first impression of this product is quite positive! It had no scent, went on smoothly but I could tell that the small amount of Glycolic acid in this toner was working as their was a bit of tingling. This was not an alarming amount of tingling as it stopped almost immediately after I swiped the product over my face using a cotton round. It left my skin feeling a tiny bit sticky but once I moved on in my routine that went away. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 I really enjoyed my first use of this product! It didn’t initially leave my skin feeling hydrated like a moisturizer would, but it instead felt like the small of hydration lost during cleansing was restored. The biggest con of this product was that it left my skin feeling quite sticky, but much like the toner the stickiness went away after I moisturized. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I really think this product will work for me! It felt nice when I applied it to my skin and went on very smoothly. This whole combination of products left my face looking a bit oily but it didn’t feel oily. I’ll see how the results turn out after regular use of these products. I applied my normal moisturizer after this. I would also like to add that I used these products in order of how I reviewed them. I don’t really know if this is the correct order so if it isn’t please comment!! I knew the toner should come first but I couldn’t really find any info of which order the other two should be used in. I have also decided to store the two products in droppers in my skincare fridge (I just received it today!! Super exciting) and I would say that applying these products cool really improved the overall experience. I don’t know that it’s 100% necessary but it felt really nice! I’ll post an update on how I feel about these products in a few weeks I’d say, that way they get a real chance to show what they can do!💕

Loved trying these products out for the past two months there is a major difference in the texture of my face, it’s a lot smoother now and clear. I use the peeling solution like once a week & then I use the toner specifically at night & the Hyaluronic acid at night & sometimes in the A.M. as well. Definitely recommend spot testing the peeling solution & for the Toning Solution, listen to the directions when it says to avoid long exposure to sunlight when using because it does make your skin more sensitive to sunburn. I do love all of these products & they are super affordable!! I ordered mine from Ulta but they are also available at Sephora!
