It’s been a while since I’ve gone through a batch of empty products. I’ve recently been unloading my empties whenever the bag starts to overflow, which seems to translate to a seasonal basis, and summer is just a few days away. I’m also going to be moving apartments soon and so it’s an appropriate time to be going through the cabinets and cleaning things out a bit! So, here’s a look at all of the skincare, makeup, body, and hair care products I used up throughout the spring and will be discarding.
I have another item from The Ordinary to talk about, and it’s the first serum I’ve tried from them that targets wrinkles. Argireline is a peptide complex, and I hadn’t heard of it before shopping on The Ordinary’s site. In all honesty I think that if I had done more research before placing my order, I probably would have bought something else, but it’s not a bad ingredient and I’ve found it an interesting one to learn more about because it has a different kind of effect than a lot of others I’m familiar with.
The Ordinary skincare: Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution, Azelaic Acid, and Plant-Derived SqualaneBy Erin on April 7, 2017
The Ordinary is really new to the skincare scene but has quickly caught everyone’s attention for their really straightforward and affordable products (also, cruelty-free). I have purchased 5 items from them so far but can’t try them out all of them at once, so I thought to start out I’d talk about 3 products that I’m using right now: a vitamin treatment, a direct acid, and a hydrator. Today I’m reviewing the Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F (vitamin C in a lightweight oil, $17.80), Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% (multifunctional brightening treatment, $7.90), and 100% Plant-Derived Squalane (lightweight hydrator, $7.90).
