New In from The Ordinary


The Ordinary (under the umbrella brand Deciem) have recently launched some exciting stuff. While, I have found some of the products to be a but hit and miss (see The Ordinary what't the deal here) their products are so cheap it's hard not to try them. They also recently launched a couple of foundations which have caused somewhat of stir in the beauty world. Here's what I picked up...


The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation | £5.70

They launched two foundations; a serum one and a coverage one. I ordered both. I'm still waiting for my coverage one. There's some drama that they've ran out of pumps so I could be waiting a while! But anyway after a lengthy wait I finally have the serum one. The first time I tried this I loved it! But I've since found this fairs a lot better with certain primers than others. With a primer on the more matte side this looks and feels dry on my dehydrated skin. With a dewy primer this looks amazing! It's so nice and natural with a subtle glow. The coverage is light but build-able. The consistency is very watery and easy to blend. Staying power wise, they lasted all day no problems at all on me,  I have the shade 3.0y which is slightly to dark for me but I can make it work. On the website there is a shade guide here, which I really recommend checking out before buying! Overall, I do like this foundation with the right primer. For just under £6 the shade range is amazing!

The Ordinary Peeling Solution | £6.30

Having not had much luck with the Ordinary Lactic Acid (review ) I was apprehensive of this. It contains 30% AHA and 2% BHA in a solution that is to be applied and left on for 10 minutes before removing. This is possibly my favourite The Ordinary Product to date! It's amazing. After the first application my skin looked brighter and so smooth. I can't recommend this enough!

The Ordinary Plant Derived Squalane | £5.50

This natural hydrator can be used on the face and hair. But I've only used it on my face. It's a lightweight hydrating oil that absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. I like this, it is a really nice face oil. It's also worth noting that The Ordinary claim this is suitable for all skin types!

The Ordinary Salicyclic Acid Treatment | £3.90

This is a BHA treatment that exfoliated the skin to treat breakouts. The directions say to apply directly to spots or the area you wish to treat. I've tried it on a couple of breakouts (I haven't had many since getting this) and I do think this helped them to heal and disappear quicker. Nothing too dramatic but I will use this again! If you do use this it is worth reading The Ordinary's directions and precautions (here) as BHA's can increase the skins sensitivity.

Overall, I'm really pleased with this little The Ordinary Haul! I haven't had any adverse reactions to any of it!

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...
