Not sure if I’m too late for this but I’ve been using The Ordinary products since late May-early June and I can definitely tell a difference in my skin already. My skincare routine starts with a BHA product (from Korean brand COSRX) --> the Ordinary Niacinamide --> mix of COSRX snail mucin essence and the Ordinary Squalane oil as my moisturizer --> SPF.
I USED to have super oily skin but now I am more of a combo/oily skin. My oiliness has dramatically decreased and I owe it a lot to all the products listed!! For my oily-skinned peeps, squalane is THE oil that seriously does not sit on top of the skin and it really moisturizes since the consistency is very similar to sebum. I use it in conjunction with an essence to help it sink into the skin faster. And using it in conjunction with the niacin, I used to have a bit of PIH and mainly PIE, but now most of my PIH have faded and I’m still stuck with some PIE (which is a lot harder to get rid of unfortunately) but I can definitely tell a difference with the amount of scarring and pigment since I started using it! I’ve already ordered my second bottle of squalane and niacin
Honestly, the Ordinary is such a game-changing brand that’s really transformed my skin (and the amount of money I spend on skincare! I legit have ditched my expensive serums as I realized they have a bunch of useless ingredients… as opposed to these products that are straight to the point and highly effective!!)
