today I want to share a skincare routine using only products from The Ordinary.
Because I’ve made it clear that I no longer use The Ordinary that much, people think I hate them, or are being paid to insult their products! That’s not the case at all! I just prefer nicer feeling formulations. But these products are products that I will always have to hand, and always buy!

Remember that skincare is extremely personal to everybody’s skin. What works for me, may not work for you. But I hope my videos give you some good ideas for products, techniques, and Ingredients to try.
Also, I’m obviously not a dermatologist or a doctor, so all opinions on products and anything else I’m presenting, are results and findings from my own experience and research.
And that’s why I’m here, to share my research and my findings that go further than what is said on the bottle or google!
But, everything I present is always a discussion for you to join in with 🙂
If you have any serious skin concerns, please see a dermatologist/doctor.

    So I really like the ordinary moisturizer with HA it has been the only one my skin has not reacted badly to. But I'm open to other affordable options. What is it you don't like about them just curious

    I'm currently using Geologie night cream which already had 2% of Niacinamide and .3% retinol but but I want to add The Ordinary Niacinamide 10 and Zinc 1. would it be safe to use both product?

    I don't think I'm the only one who noticed, but I would like to point out the product mask popping up for the azelaic acid is listing the information for niacinamide instead!

    However I love this video as well, it was a nice and simple take on a few products. I could relate to the advice and am glad my impression and experience with these products is out of the ordinary (no pun intended, really.)

    I have never used any products, I am 37 years. Now I feel I need to, my skin doesn’t look great anymore. Can use these products together? in layering morning and evening?

    I’m new to skincare at 48! Got sucked in to cerave which did nothing, ole henriksson which also did nothing and now La Roche posay cleanser which isn’t very good. Might try this now 🙄

    Azeliac acid stings my face, therefore I only use a pea-size on the affected area. Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid doesn't irritate my face. I have sensitive skin ( atopic dermatitis) My skin has improved a lot.

    Hello, Can I use The Ordinary Azelaic Suspension 10% together with The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA? Like I will use the Azelaic on selected area where I have breakouts and if I don't want to use it all over the face then after that use The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factor+HA afterwards all over my face? Or should I just pick one and these 2 can't be combined?

    could you recommend an affordable balm/ oil makeup removal cleanser for sensitive skin? I can't use fragrance. was hoping this ordinary one would be good but it isn't. I love Clinique take the day off calm but its so expensive

    Dual action moisturiser by clean and clear is my favourite moisturiser, I have acne rosacea and this moisturiser suits me perfect, my friend loves it too, she has lovely skin but gets the odd pimple and around her period gets a few and that moisturiser stops that for her, its cheap and affordable, buy mine in Tesco most of the time they'll have it reduced!

    Thank you for all this info!
    Funny you don’t care for The Ordinary Azelaic Acid. It is my hands down favorite product from this line and I’ve reordered several times.
    After this video, I’m off to order the salicylic acid masque.

    Hey! Love your video. I guess my question is would it be safe/smart to cleanse, tone, add vitamin c, then moisturizer with spf, then eye cream with retinol for the morning routine?

    Can you incorporate

    Oh! So you're supposed to used the whole toub-full of serum? I only take a bit and used it only on my face (so it would not run out quicky). And often it still feels very wet and seems that I use too much. Hm.

    I have these really sunken ‚bags‘ (more like dips) under my eyes that are relatively blue. I’ve started using glow recipe recently and have noticed an improvement on the sunkenness of the skin there, but relatively minimally. Does somebody have a tip for what works for plumping the area? Niacinamide? Vitamin C? Hyaluronic Acid?

    And I notice that my acne marks from earlier in the year are lightening now
