Hi.

I'm just a girl rapidly approaching mid-life who believes in awesome skincare, grown-up makeup, effortless hair, and classic style. Enjoy!

The Ordinary Review #1

The Ordinary Review #1

I made my first purchase from The Ordinary in December after watching reviews from three beauty influences I adore: Wayne Goss, Renee from "Gothamista," and Nadine from "The Beauty Know It All." I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, Advanced Retinoid 2%, Caffeine Solution 5%, and Vitamin C Suspension 23% with HA Spheres 2%. The website does a great job of explaining the products, so rather than regurgitating that info, I'm going to talk about my nearly two month experience. 

Hyaluronic Acid -  Big fan. Great for hydration. I use it after May Coop's Raw Sauce and before other serums and moisturizers. Definitely gonna repurchase.

Advanced Retinoid - I like it, but need a bit more time with it to call it a Must Have! 

Caffeine Solution - Meh. I haven't noticed a difference, but to be fair, my dark circles are hereditary rather than affected by lifestyle. I have moved on from this, but might try again later. 

Vitamin C Suspension - OH THE BURNING! To be fair, they do mention that this is a possibility, but it lasted far too long for me. I purchased the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%, and just received it yesterday. This seems to be a better match for me, but I'll save any recommendations until I've used it for a while.  

Overall impressions, I am happy with my purchase. So much so that I have placed four more orders! Obsessive much? Look for more reviews in the future weeks.
