There’s nothing Ordinary about what you’re about to read…
Welcome to my first ever post, on The Ordinary.
You only have to scroll down to find out that this definitely isn’t my first ever post, just my first ever ‘The Ordinary’ post.
Another thing, there’s nothing Ordinary about my posts… If anything, they’re out-of-the-Ordinary. One might even go as far as to say: ‘Extraordinari-ly weird!?!! Are you on METHODOLOGY!?!!’. Nope. I think it’s CRYSTAL clear that I have no experience in methodology.
Anyway, this review is not about my blog/posts, but about… Yep, you guessed it… Lush!
Hahaha! Only joking… The (extra)Ordinary!
My Verdict on… The Ordinary:
It’s brilliant, honestly. Fantabulous! It’s healed my skin brilliantly from pre-menstraul breakouts. Not even sure that’s how you spell “menstraul”, I think I’ve spelt it so wrong that not even autocorrect can help me out. My spelling of that word is beyond help.
Am I going to search the right spelling on Google as soon as I finish writing and publishing this? DUH! (Turns out it’s spelled: “menstrual”).
Could’ve been better*, I could’ve spelled it as MENSA!
“WHY AM I LIKE THIS!?!!” Been up since 4am is the answer.
So, are you going to try The Ordinary or..? It’s GREAT!
What products do I use from The Ordinary?
Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane
Granactive Retinoid, probably because my grandma actively avoids this blog, most definitely because she doesn’t know it exists. Speaking of grans in general, they probably use this. It’s good for keeping the skin youthful.
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
This is good for them MF’n P.I.M.Ples! 🎵
If you want to… pop some zits, with 20 serums in your pocket…🎵, this is fucking awesome! 👍
Argireline Solution 10%
The Holy Grail for my ‘nasalobials’, which just sounds like a gross synonym of the words ‘smile lines’.
I am starting to love my smile lines because they’re a sign of someone who smiled or laughed a lot. I used to hate them, but I’m starting to accept them. They’re a part of me and a reminder of my happiest times.
There’s literally nothing wrong with smile/expression lines (unless they’re frown ones). Turn that smile the right side up. ❤️
DISCLAIMER: if you’re trying these for the first time, definitely patch test. They’re quite abrasive to some skin types. Also, just because something works for me, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you. If you’ve found something that works, stick to it. If you haven’t, try these. I love them because they’re very affordable too. I’m sure this would make me feel less guilty if they didn’t necessarily work for me. Luckily, they do. ** this goes for all products reviewed**
Finally, on a separate note, thanks for not blocking this site from your Safari/Google Chrome/FireFox/Internet Explorer settings, it means a lot. If it’s any constellation, I haven’t blocked yours either. ASTRONOMICAL BEHAVIOOOOO!
You’ll be pleased to know I’m now off to bed. Literally, right now.
