The Ordinary: the scientific way to get flawless looking skin
The Ordinary has been a brand that has a lot of great publicity over the past year.
Industry representatives, skincare obsessives and influencers alike are firm fans. However, this may come across intimidating if you don’t know your alpha-arbutin acid from your alpha-lipoic acid. The Ordinary was founded to offer results-driven products at an affordable price—the only catch is that you need to know your ingredients.
So what are you getting with their ingredients you may ask? Well, there is a bunch of products for all varied skin types, so stay tuned.

A vitamina C é um antioxidante eficaz que ilumina o tom da pele e reduz o aparecimento de sinais de envelhecimento. Esta fórmula sem água fornece 30% de ácido L-ascórbico puro que permanece completamente estável devido à ausência de água. Devido à presença de silicones muito leves, esta formulação parece suave sobre a pele apesar do formato da suspensão da formulação, evitando a sensação de curta duração da nossa fórmula original de Suspensão de Vitamina C 23% + Esferas de HA 2% . Este tratamento é idealmente aplicado na hora de dormir. Este produto é uma suspensão isenta de água de 30% de ácido ascórbico em pó. #theordinaryskincare #theordinaryvitaminc #vitaminc #theordinary #dispatchbrasil
Vitamin C is used in a lot of products in this day and age, we are meant to keep our skin protected even though the sun never comes out in the UK. The suns UV rays seep through the clouds, so we must be protected at all times. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, this means it protects the cells from damage, this includes our skin cells, so it helps fight off wrinkles and sagging. The Ordinary have a number of different products for vitamin C as we all have different skin types.
The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone is to be used at night after water-based products. It is the most potent and purest form of vitamin C as it contains L- ascorbic acid. Blended with light silicones, this heavy serum feels seriously silky. For the first couple of weeks, you can expect it to tingle after use.
The Ordinary Vitamin C 23% + HA Spheres 2% is ideal for people with dry and dehydrated skin. The HA stands for hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule that attracts 1000 times its weight in water, so it’ll help hydrate the skin.

THE BEST EXFOLIATOR I HAVE TRIED SO FAR! ~~~ My face loves glycolic acid & this AHA 30% + BHA 2% peeling solution from @deciem has loads of glycolic acid (AHA) as said on its product name. I have seen a lot of people rave about it & use it continuously. In the world of skincare blogging/sharing, a lot of skincare products come and go so if you see something that people keep on using continuously, that’s your queue that it really is good 😉 ~~~ I have summarized the pros and cons based from my own experience. Pros: + helped in minimizing my bumps/acne in an instant. + noticeable clearing of the skin for the first use + brightened the skin instantly. + helped smoothen my skin. + reduced my milia. + fungal acne safe ingredients. + helped in oil reduction. Cons: - tingling feeling (but tolerable) - stings a bit bad if left for more than 10 minutes (my max was about 13 mins I almost forgot since I was doing other things ‘til I felt my face was stinging & itchy already) ~~~ No negative reaction though when I have accidentally left this for more than 10 minutes except it was itchy already but when I washed it off, still got smooth skin. I have read some people use sheet mask after this but for my case no longer did because my skin didn’t feel dry after using this. ~~~ So there you have it, glycolic which is my favorite acid as of the moment & used in this bottle 😉 #GameofGlowsPH #crushingongrayscale . ~~~ #skincarecommunity #oilyskin #discoverunder1k #abblogger #abcommunityph #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #skincareroutine #skincarelover #instaskincare #skincaretips #skincareproducts #skincarejunkie #skincareph #skincareaddict #deceim #theordinarypeelingsolution #glycolicacid #fungalacne #oilyskin
The Ordinary have a number of different acids in which you can use to get straight to the root of the problem you are having with your skin. Acids are used to discard dead skin, which can help brighten up your complexion and improve the texture of your skin.
After seeing the world talk about The Ordinary, how life-changing and yet how affordable it was, it impelled me to try out things for myself. One of the products was the Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, which claims to fight blemishes and future spots. After using this morning and night—which was the suggested routine—it, in fact, gave me more blemishes. I researched the product and found out that because this product is very strong, this was just a side effect for using it for the first time. I have carried on using it, and I can honestly say, I can see my blemishes which I have had for months fade away.
If you want your skin to be deeply exfoliated, then the AHA 30% + BHA 2% peeling solution is the perfect product for you. As you apply this to your skin there is a light tingling sensation, don't let this alarm you because this product will leave you with glowing skin.
So, in conclusion, I would highly recommend The Ordinary's products as they cater to a lot of different skin types and suit every budget.
