This is my most loved product from The Ordinary. So far. I’ve just ordered the new foundations, The Ordinary Colours. So we shall see.
But my current crush is this retinol serum. Retinol has traditionally been a pricey ingredient. Not here. The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2% will set you back just £8.
Not only is it a bargain, it’s also a pleasure to use. A lovely milky texture, it goes on smoothly and is quickly absorbed by the skin.
Extremely gentle too. Retinol can cause irritation: dryness, redness, even peeling. This is highest concentration of retinol you can get without prescription, at 2%. Yet I’ve had no irritation at all. Just results.
I started off using it twice a week and saw an improvement in texture and tone immediately. My skin looks brighter. Now I use it every other day, at night, and here’s the clincher – my skin looks better on the days after I use it than on the days I don’t.
Til next time,
