WE’VE FOUND THE BEST THE ORDINARY PRODUCTS AND SKINCARE

Rule breakers and budget friendly (can we get a hell yeah?), The Ordinary have changed the world of skincare forever. Making active skincare with potent ingredients at tiny price points, the completely vegan and cruelty-free skincare brand branched out more recently into makeup and we couldn’t be more pleased. Want to get to know the brand that we can’t keep in stock for long enough? Keep scrolling for our guide to the best The Ordinary products.

Best The Ordinary Products 2018

Best The Ordinary Skincare

  1. THE ORDINARY NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1% HIGH STRENGTH VITAMIN AND MINERAL BLEMISH FORMULA
    £5.00 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1% HIGH STRENGTH VITAMIN AND MINERAL BLEMISH FORMULA

    Admitted a bit of a mouthful, The Ordinary Niacinamide is a skincare product worth shouting about. Basically, it’s a key derivative of Vitamin B3.

    A great serum for acne-prone skin, Niacinamide is mixed with Zinc to help balance the formula, and will result in clearer skin by helping to rebalance sebum production. This works like any other serum, so will help to work on bits of the skin well beneath the outer layer, and may be applied before your day and night moisturisers.

  2. THE ORDINARY HYALURONIC ACID 2% + B5 HYDRATION SUPPORT FORMULA
    £5.90 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY HYALURONIC ACID 2% + B5 HYDRATION SUPPORT FORMULA

    As we all know by now Hyaluronic Acid is key for helping to cure dry skin. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid serum is mixed with B5 for a truly potent hydrating and nourishing skincare product, perfect for those who lean towards having drier skin, or for the winter months.

    Completely oil-free, this The Ordinary serum helps to add moisture to dry skin, while B5 helps to plump the outer surface leaving you feeling and looking fresh.

  3. The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion
    £8.00 Buy now with HQhair

    The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion

    The second The Oridnary Retinol product on this list (because they are good), the Granactive Reinoid 2% Emulsion contains two different retinoids, both aiming to help fight the first signs of ageing.

    The first is Solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate. This is a multi-purpose anti-ageing skincare ingredient, which helps to both prevent and slow signs of ageing.

    Second is pure Retinol. Again, this is an acid we’d recommend following up with an SPF, but its pure form is great for both helping on the anti-ageing front and making sure the Solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is better absorbed by the skin.

  4. The Ordinary Retinol Serum 0.5% in Squalane
    £4.90 Buy now with HQhair

    The Ordinary Retinol Serum 0.5% in Squalane

    This might just be the most hyped The Ordinary skincare product ever, and it’s definitely worth adding-to-bag ASAP.

    Retinol has been a buzzword in beauty for the last few months thanks to some pretty high profile press and influencers singing its praises. It’s an acid derived from Vitamin A that helps with the first signs of ageing, and will also help to smooth the appearance of skin with continued use. The Ordinary Retinol Serum is a 0.5% volume formulation. This means it’s great for people looking for their first anti-ageing moisturiser, and those who are new to Retinol.

    Squalene is an antioxidant too, meaning you’re helping to prevent the start of age spots, and begin to start the UV protection process too.

    Like with all acid skincare products, we’d recommend following up using The Ordinary Retinol serum with an SPF or sunscreen, making sure that the sun can’t cause any more undue harm.

    THE ORDINARY "BUFFET" MULTI-TECHNOLOGY PEPTIDE SERUM

    Next on our list of the best The Ordinary products is their anti-ageing offering: Buffet Serum. It’s called “Buffet” as it contains a wide variety of ingredients which all work together to help target visible signs of ageing, rather than focussing on just one key ingredient.

    If you’re after a The Ordinary Buffet review, our experience with the serum is that the multiple Peptide complexes work in-line with the Amino Acids to help calm and regulate skintone, whilst hydrating and nourishing skin deep beneath the epidermis.

  6. THE ORDINARY VITAMIN C SUSPENSION 23% + HA SPHERES
    £4.90 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY VITAMIN C SUSPENSION 23% + HA SPHERES

    Again harnessing Hyaluronic Acid (what the HA stands for), this deeply hydrating serum is perfect for those with dull skin. The Ordinary Vitamin C serum is made with 23% of pure Vitamin C, AKA L-Ascorbic Acid. This high percentage means that the serum will help to reverse signs of ageing whilst boosting natural radiance.

    Whilst the Vitamin C is getting to work on making sure your skin stays youthful, Hyaluronic Acid spheres help to plump skin. Best applied at night, you’ll wake up with fresh skin that looks incredible. It’s not all down to beauty sleep.

  7. THE ORDINARY HIGH-ADHERENCE SILICONE PRIMER
    £3.90 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY HIGH-ADHERENCE SILICONE PRIMER

    If you’re on the hunt for a makeup primer on a budget, then this The Ordinary primer could be just the ticket at under £4.

    Applied after your skincare routine, this primer will help to hydrate, mattify and and smooth skin, meaning it’s much easier to apply foundation on top of. As it’s free of oil, it will help makeup to last longer.

  8. THE ORDINARY NATURAL MOISTURIZING FACTORS + HA
    £6.80 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY NATURAL MOISTURIZING FACTORS + HA

    This The Ordinary moisturiser is the perfect deeply nourishing option for anyone after a lightweight moisturiser. A cocktail of multiple amino acids, fatty acids and hyaluronic acids, this is like two litres of water for your skin. Skin will appear plumper and visibly brighter, helping to keep skin hydrated throughout the day.

    And, like all The Ordinary skincare products, this moisturiser is completely Paraben-free.

    The Ordinary "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%

    The second The Ordinary Buffet Serum on our list, but by no means worse also contains copper peptides. Again, an anti-ageing serum, this Buffet serum acts on multiple signs of ageing at once. It’s particularly great for stressed and congested skin as it helps to restore texture from the first use.

  10. THE ORDINARY SERUM FOUNDATION
    £5.70 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY SERUM FOUNDATION

    Last on our list of the best The Ordinary products is one of their two foundations. This light coverage foundation contains SPF15, meaning it’s perfect for daily use throughout the year.

    Applying like a serum, this foundation like all The Ordinary makeup is the perfect mid-point between skincare and makeup, meaning it applies evenly and will help to hydrate skin throughout the day.

    Available in 21 shades, The Ordinary foundation also has options which include either silver or gold flecks to help promote radiance – just look out for the shades which end with S or G.

    After a higher coverage? Keep an eye out for The Ordinary Coverage Foundation.

When in doubt: add glitter. I'm obsessed with shimmer eyeshadows and always layer up my highlighter.
