Re: Does anyone use Ulta's "The Ordinary"?

@JeanLouiseFinchThanks everyone! While I love Skinn's Age Reset serum, their prices have gotten insane. I was looking for another lower price Niacinamide & or peptide serum products & thanks to JLF & others I think I've found what I was looking for!.

Re: Does anyone use Ulta's "The Ordinary"?

I use The Ordinary Rosehip Seed Oil.  I love it. I put it on over the top of my nighttime moisturizer.  

 

I have tried their concealer and didn't like it at all. Those are the only products I've tried.

Re: Does anyone use Ulta's "The Ordinary"?

I haven't read the other replies but I'm sure by now you know it's not Ulta's brand.  And YES, I use about 5 of their products every single day...morning and night.  L.O.V.E. The Ordinary!  They are responsible for my new and highly improved face and hands...everything I put on my face also goes on the back of my hands Smiley Happy  Tone and texture...I wish I'd taken a before and after picture but I had no idea the transformation was going to be so crazy good.

Re: Does anyone use Ulta's "The Ordinary"?

I use Hyaluronic Acid (need to apply to damp/wet skin), Buffet,Nicinamide, Granactive Retinoid, 100% Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil.  

 

I tried the Glycolic Acid and AHA/BHA...they both burned a hole in my face Smiley Surprised  Or at least it felt like it.

Hi @monicakm

my husband and I both have experienced age related thinning.  Nothing happens overnight, and consistency is key, but each of us are seeing new hair growth since we began using the hair peptides serum.

@monicakm - Can you tell me which products that you have used that help with your skin tone? I tried one of their products for tone but it was in an oil base and I couldn't stand it. I think it was Vit C and Alpha Arbutin. 

 

I've used a couple other of their serums that were water based and I like how they absorb quickly, but I couldn't handle the oil base, made my face feel greasy all night.

You don't feel that this line works for people older than 55?

Well let me tell you...I had an occasional break out.  Nothing obtrusive but I had texture in the form of under the skin (skin colored) bumps on both of my cheeks.  My tone was uneven.  Since using The Ordinary's products, I have a face that can go sans makeup or a tinted moisturizer.  Today I wore the new Urban Decay Tinted HydroManiac Tinted Glow Hydrator.  First "glow" type makeup I've ever worn since that kind of sheen tends to accentuate a less than perfect complexion.  The Ordinary products have also plumped the #1 line I have on my forehead between my eyes, making it look less noticable.  So, it DOES work for the over 55 crowd Smiley Happy  I'll be 62 in a couple of weeks.

I start out with an essence.  Toners are becoming more essence-like.  Essences are for hydration.  The one I use is like water (Tatcha and Time Revolution).  WHILE MY FACE IS STILL DAMP, I apply TO's Hyaluronic Acid.  Next is TO's Buffet.  This one helps with tone.  Then Niacinamide.  This also helps with tone.  The HA, Buffet and Niacinamide are all a serum but not oily.  Next is Granactive.  It's a dry oil(ish) product.  Absorbs quickly.  Then moisturizer and Rose Hip Seed Oil.  When I'm out of the RHSO, I'm going to change to Marula Oil.

 

I keep wanting to try some other TO  products that are raved about but what  I'm using is working so I guess I won't rock the boat.
