I’ve been trying out a few skincare bits from The Ordinary for quite some time now and with the recent hype around the brand and their very affordable prices I figured now’s as good a time as any to give you my thoughts on some of their products. I’ve started with ‘Buffet’ because it is my favourite products so far from the brand. The Ordinary is one of the many baby’s from Deciem aka The abnormal beauty company.
The Ordinary claims ‘this formula combines a comprehensive array of studied technologies to target multiple signs of ageing at once. The technologies are Matrixyl 3,000 peptide complex (with palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7), Matrixyl Synthe’6 peptide complex (with palmitoyl tripeptide-38), Syn-Ake peptide complex (with dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate), Relistase peptide complex (with acetylarginyltryptophyl diphenylglycine), Argirelox peptide complex (with acetyl hexapeptide-8, pentapeptide-18), Probiotic complex (with lactococcus lactis lysate), in a base of 11 skin-friendly amino acids and multiple hyaluronic acid complexes.
I’m not quite sure what half of those things are but now that I’ve hit my 30’s I’m looking for anything and everything to try and keep those crows feet and laughter lines at bay for as long as I possibly can. I don’t think I’ve quite used this long enough to say it’s worked wonders for my wrinkles but I’ve definitely noticed a plumpness to my skin and just an all round better texture. I feel like my skin always looks fresher and bouncier in the morning and although the box says you can use this day and night I’m currently enjoying it as part of my night time routine. I still have my huge under eye bags but I’ve come to terms with the fact that those are now a part of my mum uniform and I will wear them with pride! For when I’m not so proud of them anymore I’m also trialing the Caffeine solution from The Ordinary but I will write about that in a separate post once I’ve had more of a chance to use it.
If anybody has any recommendations from The Ordinary or any other Deciem products please do let me know. I seem to have gone a little bit The Ordinary crazy in recent days.
