    Great video as always. I just got a bunch of the Ordinary's new products this week. Their new glycolic toner looks promising with great ingredients at such a good value ($8.70 for 240ml) I also got the peeling solution ($7.20 for 30ml) and salicylic acid 2% ($4.90 for 15ml)

    The Ordinary really is interesting brand! Looks like plenty of inexpensive skin care with very good ingredients, and it's even cruelty free 🙂 Have you tried Hyalyronic Acid 2%, Buffet Serum or Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% already? There is almost too much choises and you have to know, what works with what.. Wouldn't it be good to begin from "basics" like hydrating serum with anti-aging benefits and gentle exfoliating..?

    Great video! I am very intrigued now! Really want to try these out, I am almost 45 and need to amp up my regime. Could you let me know the name of the La Roche cream you use? There are a couple on the website and I prefer to buy the one you mentioned in this video. I would truly appreciate it! So glad I found your channel after watching Beautylish Lucky bag unboxings. 😚💖

    I started using Hylamide subq serum and the Vit C booster about a week ago and I'm already seeing improvement in the texture of my skin. The past two days I've used half my usual amount of foundation because I felt that my skin was so clear that it doesn't need much cover-up. Very happy so far!

    I've broke out pretty bad I'm trying to work out if it's niacinamide , retinol or vitamin c lol maybe it's me putting too much on. What happened when you too much niacinamide on lol. Spots for Christmas, great 😥Maybe I also shouldn't have put the lactic acid on with the vitamin c. Sorry about the rant, the spot are getting to me 😂😂

    The 2 Hylamide SubQ products are amazing! I had some dry patches that nothing would smooth out and the SubQ worked in a few days. I love the Suq Eye as well. I order from CVS online when tney have 30% off and free shipping.

    I love The Ordinary 🙂 Shipping took forever for me, as one of my products got stuck in customs, but this stuff is good stuff. Thanks for sharing it!

    Yay! I have the Niacinamide and Vit C suspension, and waiting for the Azelaic Acid to arrive… The Chemistry line is good too, mainly body products. So glad to see new fresh companies, with a scientific edge 🙂 Instead of empty words.
    This is my type of skincare company :)))

    I have been stalking this stuff for months hoping there would be more reviews eventually. SO GLAD to see you talking about this line. (But they havent gotten my money yet bec they have castor oil in their products and THAT is a dealbreaker for me.)

    The ordinary os a very nice line but Deciem's NIOD skincare line blew my mind. Five month into using and thinking there's no coming back…

    I love the DECIEM line. I've used various products from The Ordinary and Hylamide lines. I recommend the Hylamide Pore Delete and the Matte 12 in the Finisher series if you tend to get a little shine as the day progresses. They say to apply after makeup but before powder and boy, do they keep the oil at bay. This morning I made the mistake of putting the Matte 12 on after my powder and, as far as i could tell, it worked fine that way too. Check them out. Best.

    You skin looks beautiful! And I love your makeup too! There are sooo many products out right now that I sometimes get overwhelmed with which one to use first, last, at night, during the day. It's kinda crazy! And, I want to use it ALL to get the best results! Simple is the best for me! .Oh, and I hope we get a tutorial on your makeup and what's on your skin… it really looks incredible! Happy for you!

    I have everything from their website, well the ordinary line. Their stuff is amazing, the things I have been using. I have had these things for quite some time but ordered a ton on Black Friday!

    Reading the website's guide on layering and when to use what, and more importantly what works with what is VERY valuable reading. I keep it bookmarked. Love this line. I have the Vitamin C (P-O-T-E-N-T!) and the Rosehip oil only at this time. Next will be the Niacinimide. Thanks for doing this video. What I am not well-versed in, is what can I use on my Retin-A nights? Right now, if it's a Retin-A night, then it's the Retin-A, and then a light moisturizer, that's it. I don't know if I can layer anything under or over the Retin-A….

    So far they have not delivered the items I ordered after learning about them from your last video end of November for black Friday, no communication other than they were backlogged with orders. They charged my credit card though. : / So be careful everyone.

    If find the products quite expensive after all unfortunately. Most of The Ordinary products only contain 1 active ingredients, and the bottles only contain 30 mL, if you want to combine multiple actives I found the whole routine to be more expensive than my current 50 dollar antioxidant serum with 5% Niacinamide and 5% vitamin C and some other actives.

    I've been using the Vitamin C, the Alpha Arbutin and the Buffet. I love all of them, especially the Vitamin C. I'm still using PC's Resist Light Antioxidant Serum, 2% BHA, CeraVe Moisturizer, and also Retin A. I'm loving the combination. I ordered the Retinoid for my neck, and am hoping it works. Your face looks great. Do you find the Azelaic Acid Suspension works as well as BHA or AHA?
