The Ordinary The Argireline Solution 10% review

Something that works: The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%

Just imagine – a serum that can actually diminish fine lines and wrinkles just like Botox. For a fraction of the price. Is it a fabled unicorn of anti-aging skincare – or can it actually work? I tested The Ordinary’s Argireline Solution 10% and looked into the claims and ingredients, and spoiler! It works. (Somehow. A bit.) Read on for The Ordinary The Argireline Solution 10% review!

skincare capsule collection

My skincare capsule collection: a routine for sensitive combo skin

I’m well-known for a certain disdain towards the concept of capsule collections and minimalism. When it comes to skincare, though, I’m a firm believer in both a less is more approach and the capsule concept. It just makes sense – you want to have a skincare regime in which you can combine stuff that works for you, and you don’t want umpteen bottles and pots standing around and going off because you never reached for them. So my approach to skincare is to find stuff that works for me (doh) and products that can be easily combined for the many issues my skin may come up with.READ MORE

The Ordinary Vitamin C serum and primer review

Review: The Ordinary Vitamin C Serum and Primer

The Ordinary – the most hyped up skincare launch of 2016. It all came together: endorsement from ‘gurus’, youtubers, the press (print!!!), a line that’s unapologizingly nerdy, and last but not least, the legacy (it’s a Deciem line, after all), the clean chic and, yes, the price point. It’s incredibly cheap, and the message is somewhere along the lines of ‘shit that works can be cheap’. You’ve got to do your homework, though – the names aren’t necessarily understandable or appealing. Instead of ‘anti-aging’, you’ll come across ‘Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F’. Beautyjunkies handled the release like the second coming, and I ordered a shit-load of stuff. Because hey, it’s cheap, and in the name of science… *mumbles* So here’s my The Ordinary Vitamin C serum and primer review.READ MORE
