GRWM: How i prep my skin before makeup| The ordinary | Hyaluronic acid



We're just ordinary people

We don't know which way to go

'Cause we're ordinary people

Maybe we should take it slow

Take it slow, ohh

This time we'll take it slow

Take it slow, ohh

This time we'll take it slow

Wow! That’s a throwback song for you guys . John Legend songs never gets old. 

Anyways, we’re not here to talk about music. We are here to do some beauty things consisting of beauty products. Today I’ll be showing off a few products from The Ordinary brand . Recently, Ulta released products from this brand online and in store.

Fast Forward....

The Ordinary is a brand focused mainly on skincare. It’s “Clinically Formulations with Integrity”. In other words, The Ordinary uses clinical technologies to improve the integrity in skincare. It’s an innovative and advanced brand within the beauty world. From puffiness and dark circles to skincare for the hands, they have it all. This brand has won many beauty awards when it really came to surface in 2016-2017. 

I’ve only tried the foundation so far which I talked about some time ago in a blog post.

In today’s post, I’ll do a refresh on their foundation and talk about three other products I’ve been using from The Ordinary. 

  1. The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

So, I’ve decided to re-up on this foundation. I purchased this foundation from their actual website because Ulta did not carry this foundation in stores or online. 

The Ordinary Coverage Foundation retails for $6.90 (super affordable!!). This line consist of 21 full coverage shades that creates a smooth finished look. The texture is similar to a lightweight, non oily cream.


I still love this foundation! This foundation broke the internet by being cost effective, skin friendly, and full coverage. Although they lack a full range of shades for all skin tones and complexions, they still do a bomb job at creating a unique formula.

2. The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5

This oil-free formula is hydrating and contains Vitamin B5 to further enhance surface hydration. It contains ultra pure, vegan hyaluronic acid. The HA delivers hydration and balance to the skin. I love to use this after every face wash and before applying makeup. I pair this with The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA. 

3. The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA.

This serum with pure alpha arbutin and hyaluronic acid helps with spots and hyperpigmentation. During and after pregnancy, I broke out a lot and developed so much hyperpigmentation on my face and neck. I use this a lot after a nice facial cleanse and before apply makeup. 

With this products, I recommend using a sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun while using these products.

I am impress with The Ordinary brand because they develop high tech formulas that are very affordable. 

...hmmm.... what other products will I be trying next from this brand ??

See you in the next post !
