Good morning everyone today’s post is on these The Ordinary products that I have been using for the past year. I was skeptical at first as to whether or not they would work. But at such affordable price I had nothing to lose apart from being disappointed.
So I decided to try out the Caffeine Solution and the Vitamin C Suspension at first. Now after three kids and the lack of sleep, mama’s out there I am sure you can relate. I have dark circles and puffiness under my eyes, hence the reason for purchasing the Caffeine Solution. As for the Vitamin C Suspension, I have heard so many good things about using it on your face that it was about time I tested this out for my self.
So let’s begin with the item that got me hooked on this brand, yes it was the Caffeine Solution that started it all. Like I mentioned earlier I suffer from puffy eyes and dark circles. As far as I was concerned I didn’t think it would work, as most professionals have mentioned that to really get rid of eye bags you need surgery. Well I really didn’t want to do that, I am totally afraid of things like that, hence opting for this non-invasive option.
Why it’s Cult
The caffeine solution is Eye-deal (sorry for the pun) for waking up sleeve-deprived eyes. This lightweight serum contains an extremely high concentration of caffeine and EGCG (a potent polyphenol found in green tea). This provides my tired delicate eye area with a powerful blend of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Studies have shown that using both these ingredients can reduce dark circles and puffiness.
In the past I have tried putting cold teabags on my under eye, as well as a cold teaspoon to reduce the puffiness. But none of these things worked, I have also tried creams in the past and again same no results. So I wasn’t holding my breath when I purchased this Ordinary Company Caffeine Solution. Like with most of my previous creams I did not see any results straight away, but I didn’t want to discard it within the first month. As with everything I gave it a good six month, and I could see some improvement. I guess that is better than nothing, and this is the first serum that has made some difference. I use it twice a day, first thing in the morning and last thing before I go to bed.
I doubt that it will completely get rid of the puffiness or the dark circles under my eyes, but I am very happy with what it has achieved so far. I can safely say I am content with the results thus far.
VITAMIN C SUSPENSION
Next and onto the Vitamin C Suspension, I really wanted to try this out. I have a few pigmentations and wanted to start off with something that is a little gentle on my face.
Why it’s cult
This suspension is supposed to tackle uneven skin tone and visible signs of ageing. The serum contains a concentrated blend of Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to brighten, smooth and plump up the skin. At such an affordable price it is a must to have in any skin care collection.
So I also apply this serum twice a day, in the morning and before bed. I have noticed the difference in how my skin looks and feels. The skin is much more brighter than usual and feels smoother too. The texture of this Vitamin C Suspension is a little grainy, which doesn’t bother me at all. Once it is on I leave it on for a minute or so before applying my make-up. If you are on the hunt for a Vitamin C serum, well then no look further than The Ordinary. Again at an affordable price it is absolutely brilliant, I am on my third one now.
