The Ordinary is one of the hottest skincare companies at the moment.

Offering powerful, single-ingredient and low-cost products. The brand has revolutionised the way we look at skincare. Ditching all forms of traditional marketing like fancy packaging etc, their products have the most scientific names possible, which can be a bit intimadating but well worth the investment, the best part about The Ordinary? The price, you getting serious skincare with powerful ingredients at the fraction of the price.

They have every skincare concern covered, from dehydrated skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, ageing skin and they even have a line of makeup. So lets dive straight into it, these are some of my favourites from The Ordinary.


Vitamin C products -

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of ageing. The Ordinary have several products which are rich in vitamin C varying in strength so you can enjoy the benefits no matter your skin type.

These are my personal favourites:

Alpha Arbutin - reduces the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
