The Ordinary

I finally got my hands on The Ordinary goodies! 😙

There's really something about the brand that made me want to try the products out aside from their price point, of course.  Maybe it is the simplicity from the packaging to the formula.  I think it's also perfect for those who are already familiar with the right ingredients for their skin concerns/type.  

As a niacinamide user (using Luxe Organix), I picked their 10% + 1% zinc.  I also threw in their primer and moisturizer to my cart because both are under $10.  By the way, I bought from Sephora US site and had them shipped to PH.

However, there are lots of local resellers on Shopee and I think SM Beauty also sells a few of The Ordinary products.

The niacinamide one is okay.  I actually can't tell the difference between this and the one from Luxe Organix (both the 2% and 10% variants).  So if you need this formula, either one of them works.  Get whichever is available.

The High-Adherence Silicone Primer is not the best blurring/long-lasting primer out there, but the good thing is, it is alcohol-free and oil-free.  I only use it as a light hydrator because I don't like the moisturizer.

The Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is also alcohol-free and oil-free but it's just too heavy for me.  I don't like layering my oily skin with cream moisturizers.

Overall, I think there are other good alternatives in the drugstore that are also affordable and with the same key ingredients.  However, if these products are easily accessible to you, go ahead and try some.  Other well-rated products from The Ordinary are Glycolic Acid, Peeling Solution and Hyaluronic Acid.

Check out my Tiktok video to see these in action. 😉
