The Ordinary could be your new favorite ‘clean’ skincare

As somebody that believes in being able to live my best life regardless of my paycheck, I’ve been on the hunt for a budget-friendly and “clean” beauty line. That’s why the ‘The Ordinary‘ has caught my eye.

The Ordinary offers many different oils, and we really love them all, but it's officially winter here in Canada and we're extra in love with The Ordinary 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil. 🧡⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Our Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil is derived from the pulp of the Sea-Buckthorn berry. It is a high-purity, organic, unrefined, virgin oil for nourishing and protecting the skin. ⁣🛡⚔️ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil contains omegas 3, 6, and 9, which help to protect the skin from visible signs of aging while supporting the skin's overall barrier function. It also contains tocopherol (Vitamin E), carotenoids, and lycopene that all help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and maintain the skin’s normal barrier function. If that wasn't enough, this oil contains a very high concentration of rare palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) for nourishing and protecting the skin.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ It also offers other fatty acids such as:⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ 🔸 Palmitic Acid⁣⁣ 🔸 Stearic Acid⁣⁣ 🔸 Oleic Acid⁣⁣ 🔸 Linolenic Acid ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil is very concentrated, and offers a distinct (very intense) natural orange-red hue due to its high carotenoid and lycopene content. ⁣Please note that a very small amount is meant to be diluted and mixed into other creams or oils for easier application. Keep in mind that the oil’s hue can stain light fabrics and the colour of this oil may remain on your skin until it is washed off (yes, it’s meant to do that 🍊). (CA$14.90/US$14.90/AU$24.90/£14.90/€14.90) ✨

So, what’s ‘The Ordinary’ all about?

The brand is all about simplicity and being completely up-front about what’s in their product, while also being free of parabens, methylchloroisothiazolinone, and all sorts of other things. Plus, they do not test on animals and don’t pay for anyone else to do so!

I’m absolutely loving the idea of getting a ‘clean’, cruelty-free product at a reasonable price.

What’s on my wish list

Right now, I’m eyeing either the 100% Cold-Pressed Virgin Marula Oil (30ml for $9.90) or the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% (30ml for $9.60). Given the price– maybe both?

Have you tried ‘The Ordinary‘? I’d love to hear about your experience.
