The Ordinary Ultimate Guide to Mixing & Layering✨
There are a lot of myths about how to play with The Ordinary products. Some products you could mix and match, but some cannot. The followings are some notes that I took based on the research I did at Cassandra Bankson's Youtube Channel. I've also attached the link on the bottom. Hope you enjoy it.💞 Antioxidants: They don’t pair well with water. Don’t mix it with other products on your hands at the same time, and wait around 30 minutes to 1h to move to the next step of your skincare. Or you could use your antioxidants and contradictory products at opposite times a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. The Ordinary - EUK 134 0.1%: Avoid mixing with Acids, Vitamin C, L Ascorbic Acid 100%, and Copper Peptides. The Ordinary - Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%: avoid mixing with water-based formulas and Copper Peptides The Ordinary - Pycnogenol 5%: derived from pine trees. The most stable and friendly product to play with others. Avoid mixing with water-based formulas and Copper Peptides. However, the Vitamin Cs, retinol, and niacinamide can be used with this product. The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanseris good at everything. The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution: use only once a day. Be careful with other acid products when you use it. Try not to use it with any retinol, won’t make either of them very effective. Avoid mixing with most antioxidants, The Buffet, Copper Peptides. If you really want to use peptides, you should use the toner first and let it soak into your skin for around 10 mins, and then go for the peptides. Acids: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution: it’s very strong, don’t use it alongside with other acids. Avoid mixing with EUK 134, any peptides, and 100% L Ascorbic Acid. After rinsing it off, you can use Niacinamide & zinc, or any of the hyaluronic acid products. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%: comes as a cream, which is more stable. Always patch test before putting on your face. Avoid mixing with EUK 134 and Copper Peptides. Ascorbic acid powder or non-copper peptides MIGHT also cause irritations. Except these, this plays well with pretty much everything else. Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Salicylic Acid: avoid mixing with other acids, EUK 134, Copper Peptides, and 100% L Ascorbic Acid. Acid and Vitamin C can really sting and burn your skin. All of the hydrators and oils really play well with other products, no contradictions at all. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oiland The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oilhave high amounts of beneficial properties to them. Pairing with a sunscreen if you want to use them during the day. The Ordinary - Amino Acids + B5: avoid mixing with other strong acids. More Molecules: The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA: this plays well with pretty much everything. Be aware of other antioxidants because it is a water base. The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG: no contradictions. Water based serum. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%: avoid mixing with any Vitamin C products from the ordinary Peptides: The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%: it doesn’t play well with anyone, specifically avoid mixing with acids, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. Same thing for the regular “buffet” even though it is much more stable. Retinol: The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion: contains water, no antioxidants with it, except for the pine derived pycnogenol, which works very well with it. Retinol in squalene: oil-based. All of the ordinary’s retinoids play very well with their peptides. Sunscreen: NO contradictions 🎉🎉 Vitamin C: avoid mixing with EUK 134, other acids, any peptides, and Niacinamide. Great with other vitamin C and sunscreens.

Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste Definitely an AOX for those who seek immediate gratification. I’ve been through phases of using this daily to using this thrice a week and love it either way - will repurchase indefinitely. Priori DNA fx221 Recovery Serum Despite being extremely gentle on the skin, this serum harnesses active ingredients and a beautiful delivery system resulting in hydrated, brightening and non-irritated skin. TO L-Ascorbic Acid Powder When used in excess, this doesn’t end well on my sensitive skin with apparent redness and breakouts. I have found that when you work out how little you really need, you get quick results at such a low price. TO EUK-134 A powerful mimetic of superoxide dismutase and catalase. This can’t be mixed with direct forms of Vitamin C or acids, so I prefer to mix it in with an oil as the last step, or with my Biologique Recherche Placenta Serum. No visible results just yet but I’m intrigued as to how this will work over a longer period of time.

WHAT THE HECK IS EUK-134 🌿✨💛
✨your follows and cheers mean so much 💛✨ What in the heck is Ethylbisiminomethylguaicol Manganese Chloride also known and EUK-134, And why should you have it? I picked this bottle up because I’ve always had redness on my chin, cheeks and around my nose. I also find my skin gets ultra dry as the seasons start to change and when there’s a slew of windy days. The Ordinary has such a range of hyped and affordable products so for $8.80 I couldn’t say no to at least trying it. So far I’ve been impressed with the results and enjoy the gentle warming feeling you get when you apply this serum, I like to use this when I am sticking to a leaner skincare routine, travelling, or spending more time outdoors. ✨ Its important to note that if you have acids in your routine for anti-aging or skin brightening purposes you should avoid using them at the same time as EUK-134, strong acids like ascorbic acid suspensions will completely break down the EUK-134 and make it ineffective. So what is it ? Essentially, EUK-134 is a synthetic molecule that mimics 2 enzymes: superoxide dismutase and catalase. These enzymes have the ability to convert harmful free radicals into harmless water and oxygen. Which in turn helps reduce redness and protect against UVB damage 🌿 ✨ If your skin seems stressed, a bottle of EUK-134 is a good thing to have on hand. Whether you’re suffering from overly dry, oily, thin, red or easily irritated skin this potent antioxidant can help get things under control. The Ordinary - EUK 134 0.1%

The Ordinary sample Routine
So the main questions I have come across with The Ordinary products is HOW to use them? It may seem like buying a bunch of different bottles is excessive BUT with The Ordinary products it is meant to be like that. Its a way to customize your skin care routine to best fit your needs and quite inexpensive. This way you use what you need or what your skin tolerates versus buying expensive creams that might contain an ingredient that it not suitable for your skin. So the question is HOW to use it? I too had similar questions and read so much information and blogs. I had a chat with one of their experts regarding a good regimen, considering that the skin tolerates all the ingredients. Two tips to start with is: 1. Test each product individually. Meaning if you but a few different bottles don't use all at once. 2. Wash face thoroughly and pat dry. Sample AM: Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc (day on, don't rub) EUK 134% Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG SPF + Moisturizer Sample PM, Option 1: Lactic Acid 10% (or 5% if sensitive) Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc (if acne prone) Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer Sample PM, Option 2: Retinol 2% (or your desired Strength) Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer (The expert mentioned that the Retinol could be applylied then followed by the Vitamin C - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, IF a few test patches were done, however I think mixing the two is a big No-No, maybe alternate nights) Sample PM, Option 3: Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer PM regimens can alternate nights too. The key step on all these steps is Moisturizer! Any brand or type that works well for you is fine, doesn't have to be pricey as long as it is providing moisture. Additionally, let's talk about the famous AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, this could be used 1x a week, IF you're not sensitive. I find that instead of waiting the full 10 minutes you could do like 5 minutes one time a week or even 1x every 2 weeks and increase the minutes as you continue to use until you're able to leave on for the 10 minutes as instructed. I have tried the above combos slowly and so far it has been great, but what works for one person might not work for another. When in doubt you can always ask an expert through their site. Overall, my FAVORITE product is the Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc. It has left my skin super soft and the slight redness I used to have is gone. I have fair skin and I feel this has helped balance out my skin so much. I am not oily at all during the day, and this is a huge deal for me. I live in S. Florida and being oil free during the day is a big win. It also leaves me with a dewy look which just makes me feel great in my skin. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Review my routine for... redness 😚😚
My main skin concern is redness (maybe mild rosacea?) on my cheeks and t-zone. It always looks like I am blushing and makes my face feel hot, so it is something I am always trying to solve! The two main redness-reducing products I use are the Niacinamide and EUK 134. The rest of the products I have included here are those that are just gentle and soothing in general. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser : This cleanser is so gentle on my skin and never leaves my skin feeling tight. It is perfect for my sensitive skin. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% : I was recommended this product by @leena.tabajaand@jane_brownto help even my skin tone! After doing some research, I found out that this is great for getting rid of dark spots, soothing redness AND decongesting pores, so I was sold! I have been using this in combination with the EUK serum for 2-3 weeks, and it has honestly made a world of a difference. I use this product in the morning so that I can still use my Tatcha Violet-C serum at night. Apparently Niacinamide can negate the effects of Vitamin C, so they always need to be used at alternating times. Kate Somerville - Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream : This is a perfect lightweight moisturizer for summertime. It is gentle and gets the job done! COOLA - Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 30 : Always have to have SPF as part of the routine! This is the one I am currently using. It is lightweight but does have a pretty strong sunscreen smell. But it definitely gets the job done. With sensitive skin like mine, you should always use SPF. TATCHA - Violet-C Brightening Serum 20% Vitamin C + 10% AHA : I use this product at night to help even out my skin tone and give my skin a boost of antioxidants. It is a bit overpriced. I definitely enjoy using it, but definitely won’t repurchase. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator : Since I have sensitive skin, I need to use a very gentle exfoliant. This leave-on exfoliant always leaves my skin feeling soothed and not stripped. This is a holy grail product that I will purchase again and again! The Ordinary - EUK 134 0.1% : This serum has a long scientific explanation of why it works, but basically it is designed specifically to soothe redness! It feels more like an oil than a serum and burned the first couple of times I used it, but my skin got used to it fairly quickly. Like I mentioned above, I use this at night to go along with my Niacinamide. The two together are really soothing my redness, and these are the only products I have ever used that do. And since they are both by The Ordinary, they are both under $10. So… rate my routine!! 🤗🤗🤗

Haven’t seen this review before
So I bought this because it has awesome reviews. It was on the pricier side for the ordinary at $8.80. This claims to fight free radicals, protect against UV damage, reduce redness and prevent water loss. I’m not sure if this takes time to work or not because I couldn’t find anything online. This didn’t seem to do anything but make my face oily. I couldn’t use my sunscreen with this product because I had a reaction to it (only when I used the sunscreen). If you know if this is a type of product that needs time to work let me know and I’ll re review this. The Ordinary - EUK 134 0.1% Also if this protects against UV damage, do I still need to use a sunscreen? I’ve read places you should, but the product claims to help against UV damage.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
