The Ordinary Skin Products Did Not Work for Me + Reviews

Leave a comment

The Ordinary skin care products are VERY popular. It’s raved about everywhere. I never went out of my way for them until a month ago. I was super ecstatic about them. If you read reviews on The Ordinary skin care products, almost everyone loves them. I mean, I could say that everyone loves them. So I purchased three skin care products from The Ordinary. They are…

  1. The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Mutilfunctional Brightening Formula
  2. The Oridnary Niacinamide 10% Zinc 1% High Strength-Vitamin + Mineral Blemish Formual
  3. The Ordinary AHA 3% BHA 2% Peeling Solution

All three skin care products are pretty popular. Here are my reviews on them. Let’s begin with Azelaic Acid.

1. The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Mutilfunctional Brightening Formula

This was the first product from The Ordinary that I used. I thought I could replace my other Azelaic Acid skin care product with this one. I was wrong. The Ordinary’s is very silicone-y. It felt great at first. It made my skin look smooth. I loved how it prepped my skin before makeup application. Unfortunately, that excitement wore off when I noticed that I developed very bad acne because of it. The worst acne ever —- cystic acne. Ouch! I stopped using it ASAP. I wouldn’t recommend this skin care product to people with acne. From my own experience, it was a really bad idea to include it in my skin care routine. Never again.

I haven’t made an update on my experience with The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% Zinc 1% Serum yet. I didn’t stop after the first day of using it. I continued to use it. Here are my thoughts on it.

The first thing I noticed about this serum is that it’s good at controlling oil. I have a lot of that stuff. That was good thing. Besides that, I didn’t notice anything else beneficial. I had to stop using it halfway through the month. I noticed that my skin started to react negatively to it. Yup! Clogged pores. I won’t repurchase it because of this. Yes, guys. Another The Ordinary skin care product down. Onto the next!

3. The Ordinary AHA 3% BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Here’s my experience on the last The Ordinary skin care product. The Ordinary AHA 30% BHA 2% Peeling Solution is different from the other two. With the Peeling Solution, I don’t leave it on my skin overnight. I leave it on my skin for only 10 minutes then wash it off afterwards. It is a 10 minute exfoliating facial. Fortunately, I haven’t had any negative reactions to it, but I’m not sure if it’s working or not. I haven’t noticed any positive results in my skin. It doesn’t burn or irritate my skin at all. I use it twice a week as recommended too. Hmm, I’ll continue to use it. I’m happy that it hasn’t caused my skin to breakout. This is the only The Ordinary skin care product that hasn’t broken me out. I’m still on the fence about it. We’ll see what happens. I’ll make an update when I’m at least halfway through the bottle.

BP Journey: 1 Week Results

It’s been 1 week of using BP.

And guess what?

All of my breakouts are gone! I would go far and say that I am 100% CLEAR! All of the troubled areas are gone! My skin feels dry though. It doesn’t feel crusty or anything like that. It doesn’t look like it either. I haven’t been moisturizing my skin at all. This isn’t the time to moisturize as much as I want to. My skin doesn’t tolerate moisturizing skin care products well. I end up with clogged pores. I’m very happy that my skin is back to what it was during the summer months. I’m not going to change my skin care routine this week (week 2). I’m going to keep at it. Stick to what it is working right now. I’m happy with the results. I’ll deal with the acne scars later. I might just let it fade naturally. My acne scars usually fade within time anyways. It’s better to leave it alone than mess things up (what I did months ago). I can always use concealer for the time being.

That’s my 1 week update. I’ll make an update for week 2 soon. Stay tuned for that! šŸ™‚
