Hyram Approved😍The Ordinary or The Inkey List? Which is the BEST?
The Ordinary and The Inkey List are getting a lot more popular recently because of how affordable they are. In this post, I will give you the answer from Hyram through the ingredients evaluation and his own experience. Niacinamide: treats so many skin problems, such as redness and sensitivity, dark spots and hyperpigmentation, controlling the oiliness in the skin, etc. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%($6) VS. THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum ($7): Ingredient Winner: The Inkey List: in addition to Niacinamide, it contains a lot more incredible ingredients, like Radish Root Ferment to soothe sensitivity, Squalene to hydrate the skin, Sodium Hyaluronate is a concentrated form of hyaluronic acid, Soybean Oil to retain skin moisturized Experience & Performance Winner: The Ordinary: super lightweight and sinks into the skin easier, great for people who have combination to oily skin. Whereas The Inkey List product has a thicker consistency with a heavier layer on the surface of skin, great to dry to normal skin. You can choose any from them based on your own skin type. Retinol: a powerful ingredient to repair multiple types of damage within the skin, including acne scars, pigmentation, fine line, aging, sun damage, etc. The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane($6) VS. THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum($10)Ingredient Winner: Tied. The Inkey List claims to have 1% retinol but actually 0.5% retinol and 0.5% hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, with is an ester of retinoic acid (an extremely powerful anti-aging and repairing product)Overall: The Ordinary is better because of how many options of retinol at different concentrations they have for a variety of skin types. Retinol can cause a lot of sensitivity if you’re not careful with the concentration Experience & Performance Winner: The Inkey List: No heavy feeling, easy to spread, very effective but non-sensitizing. However, The Ordinary products don’t feel very easy to apply. Hyaluronic Acid: helps to hydrate and condition your skin THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum($8) VS. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 ($7)Ingredient Winner: Tied. The Inkey List contains Peptides to help soothe and plump the skin, Glycerin to draw in moisture, and radish root ferment. The Ordinary has Ahnfeltia Cocinna Extract to hydrate the skin. Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid): brighten pigmentation and dark spots, protect against free radical damage throughout the day. While it is a very unstable ingredient, it could be very effective when it’s put in a stable formula. Ingredient Winner: The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone($7): It’s a water-free formula, but also has squalene, coconut alkanes, which is great for hydrating and moisturizing the skin. Experience & Performance Winner: THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Brightening Cream($10): very lightweight on the skin, and Hyram never had sensitivity while using this product. Glycolic Acid: dissolves all the dead skin cells off the surface of your skin to make your skin glow and hydrated Ingredient Winner: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution($9): the primary ingredients have Glycerin, a bunch of different amino acids, and Panax Ginseng Root Extract to support the health of the skin Experience & Performance Winner: THE inkey LIST - Glycolic Acid Liquid Toner 100ml($11): no sensitivity reaction but still effective for exfoliating the face Cleaners: The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser($8)THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser($10), THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm ($10), THE inkey LIST - Oil and Water Double Cleanser($10)Ingredient Winner: The Inkey List Experience & Performance Winner: The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm ($10): incredible for moving sunscreen, oil, and dirt from the face Moisturizers: Winner: THE inkey LIST - Hemp Oil Cream Moisturiser ($13): good for reducing redness; THE inkey LIST - Snow Mushroom Hydrating Gel Moisturizer($10): great for reducing sensitivity; THE inkey LIST - Multi-Biotic Balancing Moisturizer($13): great for healing the healthy bacteria count on your skin The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA($8): it is good but in comparison to The Inkey List it just doesn’t stand out Check the link below to watch more from Hyram, and let me know if you have any thoughts.💖💖 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Znd29c8mTo&feature=emb_title
THE inkey LIST- Hyaluronic Acid Serum
DOES VITAMIN C WORK? 🍊 I think we all ask this question because when it comes to Vitamin C there isn’t a large sum of evidence for the effectiveness compared to say, Vitamin A. Ceo glow by sundayriley has THD Ascorbate ‘TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE’ which is a form of Vitamin C that has been modified to be more lipid soluble meaning it is more successful at getting to the dermis in turn promoting collagen production. It can also help lessen free radical damage and help fade pigmentation. The next day I really do feel my skin is brighter. 8/10 Vitamin C suspension 30% in silicone by the ordinary contains L-Ascorbic Acid which is water soluble but not highly stable however it has been shown to have the same benefits as THD, it just doesn’t penetrate as deeply. I’m not a fan of the application of this and it stings a little so I’d give this one a pass. 6/10 The Vitamin C powder cream by drsebagh contains Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate which is more stable than L-Ascorbic Acid and is less likely to oxidate. It’s honestly my favourite Vitamin C that I’ve tried and really does fade pigmentation. 8.5/10 C Tango multivitamin eye cream by drunkelephant contains 5 forms of Vitamin C, and 8 peptides so it has great potential for lightening pigmentation and promoting collagen growth. I really do like this but it doesn’t brighten as much as I’d like. 7.5/10

If You Hated This Product, You Did it Wrong! 💖
There are many people who have sensitive skin who hate this product. But it's hard to resist this because it is a key to bright, hydrated, and smooth skin. I have sensitive skin and have read into proper ways to use it, which is why I think I love it so much! This gives me soft, smooth and even toned baby skin and I swear by it!!👼💖 What is my Secret To Success With This Product?? When applying, a tingling sensation can be expected after application. This is what turns out to irritate many people...If this sensation is too strong, dilute the solution during each application with your favourite serum or cream. Try to avoid applying it to any lacerated pimples or open sores. Avoid the eye area at all costs!! They will get itchy and irritated. I made the mistake of rubbing my eye after application and learned the hard way... Wash your hands!! 🧼 The tingling did not last long and when diluted it's hardly an issue. Why is This so Effective? This solution is water free, which keeps the L-Ascorbic acid (a pure form of vitamin C) stable. Most vitamin C serums lose their potency and effectiveness quickly with exposure to air and water, this solution prevents this completely! When applied topically, this form of vitamin C has been shown to brighten complexions and defy multiple signs of skin ageing and the addition of very light silicones in this formulation means that it feels super-smooth on the skin. This is meant to be worn over night, and I find it a great finish to my day. If I apply it before bedtime, it leaves my face looking mattified and evens out my complexion and skin texture. ( It's my secret to wearing no makeup and still glowing while enjoying a movie before bed with my boyfriend😉). The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone Now, if this tip doesn't work, don't use this product! I'm only speaking from my own experience.

Vitamin C for Sensitive Skin?
The Ordinary has a large profile of different Vitamin C products. These include: ￼￼The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone ￼￼The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% ￼￼The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% ￼￼The Ordinary - Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% ￼￼The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% ￼￼The Ordinary - Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution ￼￼The Ordinary - 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder ———————————— The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F This product is an oil-soluble derivative of vitamin C that can be used in a higher concentration. It contains Vitamin F which is also known as fatty acid. This includes two fats: linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA). ALA is part of the omega-3 family, whereas LA is part of the omega-6 family. These help maintain skin barrier. Vitamin F (which technically isn’t a vitamin at all) works well with other topical active ingredients and is safe for all skin types. The Ascorbyl solution is a light oil solution. It has a high potency but is very low in terms of stinging. The absorption rate is 1-5 seconds. It costs $17.80 CAD, which is more expensive than some of the other TO vitamin C products. I like this product because it is a light-weight oil but is high potency, and the fact that it doesn’t sting upon application is wonderful. I know some of the other TO vitamin C products can sting quite a bit. This product is great for: ☀️Dullness, uneven texture, uneven skin tone, and fine lines and wrinkles. This product does apply quite oily but once it is absorbed into the skin you forget you applied an oil and are left with a bright complexion. This can be used in the AM/PM. Definitely recommend if you have sensitive skin and want to try a Vitamin C product and not worry about the stinging :) This could also great for all other skin types!

It Is Worth Every Dollar You Spent!💯💯💯
If you’re reading this, lucky you! Because I will be tackling THREE different issues we all might face with our skin and will be giving you THREE different solutions! Do you ever feel sometimes your skin is feeling big and puffy especially after you wake up? This is because of water retention. To get rid of this puffiness, I recommend washing your face with cold water and a face wash or cleanser with microbeads. I personally have oily, acne prone skin and I strongly recommend the Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub. This is wonderful for my skin because it is so cooling, and it also has microbeads which turns my puffy face into a chiselled work of art! One down, two to go! With my acne, I had some scarring that was STUBBORN and wouldn’t leave. I tried a multitude of products and when I landed on The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. The product has a gritty texture similar to how microbeads feel, and they work well with my skin type. It is quite strong, so I started with twice a week and worked my way up to every alternate day. The Vitamin C is so good for my skin because it almost immediately removed all the scarring on my face! But make sure NOT use it when you exfoliate because the two don’t go together, I’ve learnt, and it can irritate the skin. However, the product itself is a gift from above. The third and final product from my list of treasures is the fresh - Umbrian Clay Pore Purifying Face Mask. I bought it at Sephora for $58, and I have to say that it is worth EVERY dollar. After just one use, it felt as though my skin was reborn! I could feel a significant change in the texture of my skin, and even my acne was disappearing after a couple of uses! The clay was so soothing and smelt like heaven! Usually I’m not one for clay masks, but this one broke all records in my book!

Long Awaited Review!!
Hey everyone! I recently bought a few products from The Ordinary brand!! Let’s start off with mentioning my skin and what it’s like. I have acne and acne scars. My acne isn’t very dramatic or intense. It’s more of an insecurity too since I have brown skin and it tends to be a bit dull and appear dehydrated. My forehead is clear for the most part except for these really weird tiny bumps that don’t feel like anything or even look like they’re there except for when there’s light shining directly down on me. It’s honestly probably just me nitpicking so there’s not much to worry about! The acne on my cheeks however is definitely more prominent. I have quite a bit of dark acne scars and pimples here and there. It’s not painful at all and these products have helped tremendously! My skin isn’t very sensitive and overall remains very normal! I did purchase the Vitamin C Suspension Cream with Spheres (not shown in photos) but I found the product to be too itchy and uncomfortable on my skin. I couldn’t last more than 2 days with using it so I really don’t have much to say about it however, it does seem like a promising product! I do recommend trying it and I hopefully will try their Vitamin C Suspension Cream with Silicone and see if that’s any better! The cream felt nice though. It was really smooth but I couldn’t really tell if I was applying it on the areas I was trying to reach. It also felt a little oily in a way. Almost like the cream melted on my fingertips. Again, this really does seem like a promising product, but it may not be for sensitive to normal skin. The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone Now onto the holy grail product (well for me at least), The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%! Oh my how I love this solution. It has helped so incredibly much with my acne and the pigmentation of my skin. I can’t even begin to describe how wonderful this serum is! It feels very nice on the skin and I only need around 2-3 drops to apply on my face! A little goes a long way! My acne scars went down the night I tried this. This product is meant to be applied at night but you can use it in the daytime as well however it is highly recommended that you use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30 since it can cause sensitivity to the outside world. (Sunscreen is a must have in your skincare routine! It protects your skin and is the BEST anti-aging product! Highly recommend that you incorporate it as the last step in your routine. It works wonders!). Overall I strongly believe that you should try this product. It doesn’t feel oily or have any negative impact on my skin. It has left me feeling more confident and brightened it with the result of me feeling absolutely amazing. It has helped even the toughest parts of my skin including scars I’ve had for years! The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Read the rest in part 2 up now!
