Does the title sound like it could be the name of a band?
When I first heard of The Ordinary, I was skeptical that good skincare didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I pretty much ignored The Ordinary for a while until I realized there were lots of people raving about it, and I wasn’t giving it a fair chance. The beauty of The Ordinary is that you’re “building” your own skincare depending on what your skin goals are rather than picking that one-size-fits-all product.
I’ve ordered from the The Ordinary website before, but I’m writing about Beautylish in particular because I think they did such a fantastic job at making the experience so much easier. There’s no doubt that The Ordinary can be overwhelming, especially if you’re interested in a lot of their products. They offer so many different serums and treatments – some of them are PM use only, others you have to use SPF with, and on top of that, there are also some that you can’t use certain products with!
There are resources on both websites, but Beautylish included detailed product cards for every item ordered and a sticker sheet to keep your products organized, which is something that my previous order from the The Ordinary website lacked. It’s probably old-fashioned for me, but I like the cards because it’s easier for me to reference to. I contacted Beautylish support and asked if they include the info cards and stickers in every order for The Ordinary products – they said yes! The rep mentioned that they do occasionally run out of stock for the cards, though.
Out of this purchase, I’m most excited to try their Argireline Solution 10% and 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rosehip Seed Oil. The Argireline solution has great reviews on Beautylish and some even said it was like botox in a bottle, so I have high hopes for it. I was actually debating between their rose hip seed oil and argan oil; Cindy wrote about the latter recently and it was the standout product for her so I went with that one. I’m hoping it can replace the Fresh Seaberry oil from my skincare routine!
