Skincare out of The Ordinary

Hello there,

So long time no see. I know I've been a bit quiet but with a multitude of online presences (blogs, youtube, twitter, instagram etc) to keep on top of sometimes certain things get a little forgotten about or left behind and this blog was the casualty. But anyway, that's not why we are here.

Today we are here to talk about a few new products that I picked up recently from the brand The Ordinary.

The Ordinary is a brand that has come from pretty much nowhere but has gained high hyped status thanks to the words of many esteemed bloggers and vloggers. The Ordinary is part of the Deciem umbrella of brands who all do not test on animals and also do not use parabens, mineral oils, sulphates and all the other nasties so it's safe to say that the brand are all around good eggs.

What's more, the price of these products I've bought along with everything else in the range aren't going to break the bank with the prices of the products all sitting between the £5 to £15 price bracket.

The three products I decided to pick up were Lactic Acid 10% +HA 2%, the 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and also the Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I am yet to try these products but I thought it would be good to try a bit of everything.

The Caffeine Solution (£6) is designed as an eye serum, which is claimed to reduce pigmentation and puffiness and improve the surrounding of the eye contour. As someone who never feels like I'm getting enough sleep, I thought this would be the perfect product for me.

The Lactic Acid 10% (£6) is a direct acid treatment designed to exfoliate the skin and reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity. Acids are not scary, if used properly as I have learnt using the Sunday Riley Good Genes product. It is GG that made me pick this product up because they both use Lactic Acid as one of their main ingredients but The Ordinary one is much more purse friendly in comparison to the £85 that you have to splurge out if you want to use the Sunday Riley offering.

Finally, the 100% Rose Hip Seed Oil (£9)  is an oil with one ingredient but it's an ingredient that packs a punch. Rose Hip oil is known to reduce signs of photo-aging (aging of the skin due to UV light) but is also works wonders on scars, stretchmarks and pesky spots that just won't die down. I've used Rose Hip Oil before thanks to being introduced to the Trilogy version but again like with the Lactic Acid above, I wished to try the The Ordinary one because it is is almost half the price of the Trilogy offering.

Like I said before, I have yet to try any of these products as I have only just bought them, but I just thought I'd introduce you to some new things from my skincare drawers that I can't wait to try out. 
Have you tried anything from The Ordinary yet? What did you think?
