Update – Third week – Testing a skincare brand – The ordinary

It has officially been three weeks since I started to use the ordinary.

My skin feels softer. And my dry spots it starting to go away, finally

My undereye area is still kind of red, but I definitly see a difference from the first day.

I do feel like my undereyes look more red in real life, but maybe that is just me.

I do feel like it is working and making my skin more radiant, but I still have my dry spots .

My bags under my eyes is slowly going away, but it is definitely working, I was skeptical at first. I love when I can see some results.

Update – First week – Testing a skincare brand – The ordinary

Time for an update!

I have been using the products for a whole week.

In the morning
I am using the marine Marine Hyaluronics and the natural moisturizing factors + HA in my morning routine. I have also been applying a sunscreen everyday. I really want to get better at applying sunscreen, because we need to protect our skin from the sun.

In the evening
First I apply the squalane cleanser, the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, the Marine Hyaluronics, the Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (only under the eyes), the 100% Plant-Derived Squalane and the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA.
Some days I have been applying weleda skinfood – makes the skin really greasy, but is super hydrating.

On one of the days I applied AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution for only 2 minutes at night. It did sting a little bit, but I think first I have never used a peeler before, and my dry spots doesn’t like something with a lot of acid.
Remember if you use it, don’t let it sit more than 10 minutes and apply sunscreen when going out in the sun, because you skin can be more sensitive to the sun after using it. I only used it for 2 minutes because I have never tried it before on my whole face. Next time I am going to try for 3 minutes.

My skin definitely feels softer, and when I compare the 2 pictures I can definitely see a difference in my under eyes.
my skin still has some dry spots but I think I have some eczema (no fun)
