The Ordinary: My First Time

The Ordinary is a brand from DECIEM, which is a beauty company with an umbrella of different brands, such as NIOD, Hylamide, Chemistry Brand, HIF and of course, The Ordinary. The brand was created with the purpose of creating a collection of treatments offering familiar, effective clinical technologies positioned to raise pricing and communication integrity in skincare. 

Since I moved to Europe, I’ve heard a lot about this brand and saw so many people reviewing their products, buying and also lots of good comments. Their prices are, literally, cheap for what they offer in results. So, that being said, I just thought that I should give it a try and test them on my own skin. I bought all of them online, at the DECIEM website, and it took 2 weeks to arrive in Budapest.

In this first post, I’m gonna share all the products that I bought from The Ordinary and then, in an upcoming post, I’ll do a review week by week about my skin progress.

My final order was 29.87EUR and usually, this is the price of only one product from any skincare brand. I’m pretty excited to try all of them and to share my thoughts about their products.

The Products

Squalene Cleanser

A gentle cleansing product formulated to target makeup removal whilst leaving the skin feeling smooth and moisturized. The formula incorporates Squalane, alongside other lipophilic esters that are gentle, moisturizing, efficient in dissolving makeup and facial impurities and increasing the spreadability of the product. When rubbed between your palms for approximately 10-30 seconds, the product undergoes an important textural change from a balm-like consistency to a clear oil-like consistency.

5.54 EUR

Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 7% toning solution offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use.

6.70 EUR

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity.

4.54 EUR

100% Organic COld-Pressed Rosehip Seed Oil

This formulation uses 100% pure Rosehip Seed Oil that is both cold-pressed and organic. Rosehip Seed Oil is rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and pro-vitamin A, all of which degrade when the oil extraction process involves heat. While cold-pressed extraction is complex, it preserves all of the quality of this important oil which has been shown to reduce signs of photo-aging and many other skin conditions.

7.55 EUR

AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin’s topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. This combined 32% AHA/BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and for improved skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use.
