Estee Lauder recently “acquired a minority stake ” in Deciem, the parent brand behind The Ordinary. This means oodles of money for them, and lots of new products from The Ordinary for us! So, I was stalking The Ordinary website as I do, and I noticed quite a few new interesting products; The Ordinary Matte WaterColours , a bunch of new suncare and new Vitamin C products
One of my favourite things about shopping with Sephora (and pretty much most standard cosmetic retailers) is the free samples! I love samples because they are a great way to try a product at home with no pressure before going ahead to make a purchase. I have acquired quite a few samples this year. In this post I will discuss skincare samples, and in another post I will discuss makeup samples.
If you’d told me a few years ago that I would willingly put oil on my oily face, I would’ve laughed at you. But over the years, I have come to understand that balance is key, and that aggressively combating oiliness by using overly mattifying products is really not the way to go, but that is a story for another day. Today I am reviewing The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil.
One question I get a lot is about the order in which to use skincare products. I have covered this in my How To Build A Skincare Routine post. Another related question I get is how to use The Ordinary Skincare products, which is what we will be discussing in this post.
I have been using AHAs and BHAs for years now, albeit in lower concentrations. So when brands started making AHA/BHA products in higher concentrations, I knew it was something I wanted to try. Today, I’m reviewing a “mask” from The Ordinary which contains 30% AHAs and 2% BHAs.
