Best The Ordinary Skincare

  1. THE ORDINARY 100% PYCNOGENOL 5%
    £8.65 Buy now with HQhair

    THE ORDINARY 100% PYCNOGENOL 5%

    The newest in from The Ordinary, the 100% Pycnogenol 5% is a plant-derived antioxidant. Made from pine bark taken from French maritime pine trees, this skincare product contains procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids to help hydrate skin, with the long-term aim of increasing skin elasticity.

    Plus, it has an ability to bind to both collagen and elastin thanks to its high affinity to them, meaning that it can help protect them from free radical damage. Plus, it has the ability to help recycle oxidised Vitamin C, meaning skin continues to glow.

    At 5%, this is a fairly high concentration, so 1-2 drops should suffice for the whole face.

  2. THE ORDINARY NIACINAMIDE 10% + ZINC 1% HIGH STRENGTH VITAMIN AND MINERAL BLEMISH FORMULA
    £5.05 Buy now with HQhair

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

    The Ordinary Niacinamide is a skincare product worth shouting about. It’s a key derivative of Vitamin B3, and the best The Ordinary product for a lot of people, hence its cult following.

    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.

    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.

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.
