Doesn’t it feel like The Ordinary have been around for absolutely ages? Yet it isn’t even two years since they first launched their fantastic range of affordable skincare, and at the rate they keep adding to their line, it’s quite amazing that they’re still such a young brand. I’m always excited to find out what’s new and I know you guys like to hear about it too, so here’s a quick look at three of the newest The Ordinary launches:
The product I’m most excited about is the Marine Hyaluronics, which is a marine-derived water reservoir similar to Hyaluronic Acid, but with a lighter texture and feel. I’m a massive fan of Hyaluronic Acid as it’s one of those ingredients that I think every skin type benefits from, yet I’m aware some people find traditional HA serums a little too thick or rich, so hopefully the Marine Hyaluronics will offer a lighter alternative. It’s £5.90 here – link.
There are also two new oils in The Ordinary line-up, which I’m particularly excited about as I love a good oil – I really think that a well-produced oil can be a total game-changer for skin – and The Ordinary do some great oils that are really well priced. The 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Borage Seed Oil is a great addition to the impressive collection of The Ordinary oils as it’s known for being a fantastically anti-inflammatory and hydrating oil packed full of fatty acids, so it’s great for soothing very dry, sensitive, inflamed skin. It’s £4.20 here – link.
The 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil is another deeply hydrating oil that’s also contains some amazing fatty acids, with particularly high concentrations of Omega 7. This oil is one of those oils that most skin types would benefit from including in their routine, as it’s great for repairing/maintaining barrier function and keeping skin soft, plump and supple. It’s a little more expensive than the usual budget The Ordinary price point, which I’m guessing is due the concentration of the fruit oil, although I could be wrong. It’s £14.90 here – link.
