Four Favourites from The Ordinary.

giugno 28, 2017

Although I do love the occasional drugstore makeup gem, I can't say I've ever been truly interested in budget skincare, not when my face is involved at least. Mostly because cheaper brands have the tendency to add lots of artificial fragrances to their products that can aggravate my sensitive skin, and in general I've always believed that you get what you pay for and good ingredients don't come for free. Then The Ordinary happened and took by storm not just the whole beauty community but also my skincare cabinet, and made me completely rethink my attitude toward skincare.

What I love about the brand is their minimalist, no-nonsense approach to products: they got rid of all the unnecessary stuff, such as fancy packaging, superfluous ingredients, fragrance and the like, and  bottled up just the pure actives that are what the skin really needs. By doing so they allow you to target directly your own skin concerns and create your perfect skincare regime without breaking the bank. Brilliant!
I've been trying a few of their products for quite some time and these are my favourites so far.

Although I do enjoy constantly changing my base products just to keep things a little interesting, sometimes I find a combination that works wonders for me and I end up sticking to it and wearing it over and over again. This is one of those times and I really need to tell you all about it.
