I agree about that primer! I used it last week just on it’s own, applied it and went past the mirror half an hour later and thought I almost looked airbrushed - it was incredible! And went out spent quite a bit of time in the sun and when I got home I was still matte; no oil anywhere!
I’ve bought HA, Buffet, Niacinamide, NMF, Vitamin C 23%, the primer and Hylamide Matte 12. I’ve only used the Niacinamide twice, maybe three times as I’m just a bit wary of breakouts as lots of people have stated and I’m giving the other items a really good chance to see if there’s any noticeable difference but I love everything! The HA is great at plumping the skin and making fine lines less obvious. I’ve now started using the vitamin C every second night (I use Retinol Serum from skinstitut on the alternate night) and I LOVE it. I wasn’t sure I would as so many complain about the texture or burning but after 4 or 5 uses I am now just getting a slight tingle that only lasts 10 minutes. I read that applying Buffet, or HA before hand can reduce the burn so I’ve done that a couple of times and it does. I only use a small amount, the grit doesnt bother me and for those that hate it apparently you can mix it with moisturiser or HA to reduce the gritty texture. After 15 minutes or so my skin feels smooth and normal and not longer gritty. The following morning my skin just looks brighter so I’m excited to see my skin after a couple of months.
The Hylamide matte is great for people with oily skin. You apply it as the final step of your makeup, just a small amount patted on and it keeps you matte all day! I was a bit wary as I’ve never used a product like that before, that goes on last but it really is a wonder.
Not sure if Buffet is making a difference or not, I’ve started just mixing a few drops with a few drops of HA and smoothing all over my face, neck and chest, and I mix a few drops of HA with the moisturiser just to make it go on easier and a little further.
So basically, I love it all!! I think my next purchase will be a peel which I’ve never used in my life so I’m a little wary but very excited, and the salicylic acid for spot treatment. I’m still using a cleanser by Skinstitut, but other then that The Ordinary can take all my money!!
*and I created a post elsewhere, but I hope @AdoreBeauty start offering the stickers that help identify Am/Pm, once a week etc for us to use like another site does, and the little info booklets as I think that sounds great!!
