    Thank you so much! I didn't know about this site. I'm a big fan of The Ordinary and have never seen them on sale anywhere.

    One of my favourite sales of the year :D

  • Anyone know if Myer is gonna do the deal?

    • +1

      Not sure..I've never heard of deals from Myer

    • Not when I went last year. They said they wouldn't run the promotion at concession stands.

  • Can be cheaper if you use this Klarna deal and purchase via Adore Beauty. Could also claim cashback from the usual providers.

    • How much does this set you back per month?

      • +2

        mmmm $60 lasts around 3-4 months?

        Pretty Good compared to most skin routines.

    • +17

      I'm 27 years old. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine.

      In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack, I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water activated gel cleanser.

      Then a honey almond body scrub. And on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub. Then apply an herb mint facial mask, which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine.

      I always use an aftershave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.

      Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

    • +2

      I hope there's sunscreen for daytime too? :)

    • No Vitamin C? Vitamin A?

      They seem to be big.

      My issue is, I get pimples around my cheeks. I just have combo skin! Generally I don't even need skin care, but my work is very dry and dries my skin out so I find it difficult to know what to use and even if my skins dry at work I somehow get pimples by the end of the day! It's frustrating.

      It's like I'm better off using nothing, other than my forehead 😂😂😂

      • +1

        Hmm, if your skin is dry, your skin barrier may not be very happy and that can in turn cause more acne (bacteria penetrates more easily). I'd focus on using a gentle cleanser like the Cerave SA cleanser, and keeping your skin hydrated with a light moisturiser rather than using actives as that can cause further irritation.

  • Did you sign up to the newsletter How come I didn't hear anything?!?

    In the past have some products gone out of stock with this promotion?

    • +1

      I was checking the website directly, knowing that last year's sale started on Nov 1.

      The email did arrive overnight though.

      • Yep I've just seem it!

  • This is a very overwhelming product range. What do you guys recommend for daily moisturiser? Is it just the natural moisturising factors?

    • I think their moisturizer is expensive. Just the common economy brands like Neutrogena would be fine.

      • good shout, thanks mate

        • -2

          No problem. My strategy, avoid any serum products that says hydration and go for neutrogena cause it's cheaper and, I like it. Then, treat other skin problems that cheaper brands can't with the other

      • +3

        $12.90 for 100ml at full price is actually pretty cheap. The 30ml isn't good value but the 100ml is

    • I’m not a big fan of natural moisturising factors. Could only recommend to someone with dry skin… it’s super heavy. Someone below said Neutrogena - the Hydro Boost water gel is a top notch everyday moisturiser. Don’t forget SPF in the morning! This is more important than any moisturiser.

    • A daily moisturiser doesn’t have to be anything special. It also doesn’t need to be anything expensive or fancy. All you want from a moisturiser is for it to hydrate your face. Any moisturisers advertising anti wrinkle, anti aging, exfoliating, with SPF, etc. should be avoided (you need to buy separate products for those things).

      Unfortunately, it’ll take some trial and error to find what’s actually suitable for you. Cerave is a good start. Cheap, easy to access (chemist warehouse) and gentle on your face.

  • Wish they still offered click and collect - FAQ says they still offer it but the option doesn't appear at checkout

    I rate the Buffet + Copper.

    • Likewise - and it’s super cheap for what it is. Funnily enough… I didn’t like the normal Buffet without copper. My sister didn’t either - she says she couldn’t apply anything over the top of it.

    • Did you see greater improvements compared to the regular Buffet?

  • +8

    Here’s some of the products I use - happy to answer any questions about them if anyone has.

    Caffeine + ECCG Serum - great for under eyes - I use daily AM

    Lactic Acid 10% + HA peeling mask - a reasonably gentle direct acid acid - Used twice a week, PM

    Granactive Retinoid 2% - used mainly for anti ageing on the nights I don’t use the Lactic Acid

    Buffet + Copper Peptides - a great all round serum, very cheap for what it is, super thin so goes well under moisturiser/SPF - I use every morning

    I’m not a big fan of the Squalene Cleanser or Moisturising factors + HA. I found both quite “heavy” for my skin type - they’d be great for someone with dry or eczema prone skin though.

    I did use the 7% Glycolic acid toner for a time but stopped when I switched to the Lactic acid peel. Too much acid!

    Overall I like TO products but as above, they can be super hit and miss. They’re cheap, but the cost is somewhat offset having to buy a few different products to find what you/your skin likes and can tolerate. The regimen builder is very basic.

    • Gran. Ret. 2% Emulsion: My mum uses it and says it irritates her skin?

      Buffet and copper pep. 1% - She said it darkened her skin?

      • +1

        Retinoids in general are irritating - she could try a lower percentage? Or just try using it every other day while the skin builds tolerance and then moving to daily.

        Buffet + copper - can’t say I’ve had the same problem? And I’ve got pretty fair skin…

        • Buffet + copper so you've stopped using?

          Retinoids, great idea!

          • @PeeDee: I use the buffet + copper every day!

            I think the ordinary actually make a 0.5 and 1% retinoid… try that :)

    • Wondering what benefits you see from using the Buffet + Copper Peptides? The Ordinary says its for anti aging but I feel like a retinoid (which you use anyway) might be better for this. So what do you achieve by using buffet with copper peptides? Thanks!

      • +1

        Buffet + copper is supposed to have some anti ageing effects but I’ve mostly noticed texture improvements, less redness around my nose and on my cheeks etc. I can’t quite quantify it other than by saying my face looks “healthier” than before I started using it. Check out the info page… it probably sells it better than I do.

        If your goal is purely anti-ageing, then Retinols are your best bet for sure. Buffet was easy to add to my AM routine, and Retinols should be used PM - why not both right?

        • +1

          why not both right?

          Why not indeed. Just not in the same night, as the copper peptides conflicts with retinols :)

  • I'm contemplating between the Niacinamide serum or the powder…

    • Haven't tried to powder but the serum dries up so quickly…I feel like I have to use more to cover my face.

      • are you applying the recommended?

        • I do 2-3 drops only.

  • Anyone interested in the Glycolic Acid toner i would recommend you against it if you have sensitive skin. It is very strong and has a stinging feeling after application. Best to pair this with Niacinamide to "cool down" the redness after application.

    • Glycolic acid is definitely one the strongerside.Those with sensitive skin should try the mandelic acid 10% instead which is meant to be much more gentle. Always patch test and start slow (do not apply every evening from the start)

  • Hi, What's the difference between these 2:
    Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion (Moderate Strength, No Irritation)
    Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane (Moderate Strength, No Irritation)

    • +2

      The active ingredients are the same but the base is different. Emulsion is water-based, milky and light, squalane is oil-based. It depends on what texture you like - I prefer the emulsion in the warmer months and squalane in winter. Store in the fridge and use up within 3 months.

      • thank you~

    Some tips on the The Ordinary's retinoids (includes retinol/granactive retinoid)

    • The pure retinols can be irritating, always start with a lower percentage if you are new to it. With any retinoids, slowly introduce to your PM routine, e.g. twice a week for a few weeks, then every 2 nights, then every night if you wish.
    • Retinols are notoriously unstable - Deciem recommends storing in the fridge and using up in 3 months. source. A study has shown that it degrades quite quickly after opening - only 30% of the good stuff left after 6 months or opening
    • Granactive retinoid is more stable and less irritating, has one less step of conversion to retinoic acid (which is what works on the skin), although it does have less research supporting it's effectiveness, compared to retinol.
    • Granactive retinoid degrades less than 15% after 6 months of opening. source - but I'd still keep in the fridge
    • The percentages of retinol cannot be directly compared with granactive retinoid, and it's difficult to calculate the rate of final conversion to retinoic acid. However, deciem's hints on strength suggests that retinol 0.2% < retinol 0.5% or granactive retinoid 2% < retinol 1% or granactive retinoid 5%
    • Deiciem says not use copper peptides with retinoid on the same night (ingredient conflict)
    • Deciem recommends not using using it at the same time as Direct Acids, Pure/Ethylated Vitamin C (I'm guessing more for avoiding irritation)

    I have tried the granactive retinoid 2%, and have slowly worked my way up to retinol 0.5%, granactive retinoid 5% and now retinol 1%. Due to the increased stability of granactive retinoid and less irritation, my recommendation is to start with the granactive retinoid 2% in either emulsion (water-based) or squalane (oil-based). In my experience it isn't less effective than retinol.

  • "Previously, we did not have a contraindication listed for the use of direct acids/Vitamin C with any of our peptides. However, we now have a huge arsenal of these products and some of the formulations are more susceptible to hydrolysis with certain types of Vitamin C or acids.

    Instead of developing a complex guide listing the compatibility of each of our peptides with each acid and Vitamin C, we have adapted the following approach to maximize efficacy for the maximum number of people:

    It is best to not use Peptides in the same routine as the following products: Direct acids, LAA (L-Ascorbic Acid) and ELAA (Ethylated Ascorbic Acid). In addition, we would recommend avoiding the use of products containing copper peptides in the same routine as strong antioxidants as well as direct acids/LAA/ELAA."

    When did skincare get so complicated? I just use Natio's Daily Defence Face Moisturiser SPF 50+ twice a day with Natio Men's Daily Face Wash at night, and a generic mild exfoliator before I shave once a week, all of which seem to do fine.

    • +1

      The Ordinary products contain higher percentages of active ingredients than your average skincare, and it does take a bit of effort to figure out what plays with what when using multiple products in their range.

      If you don't have any skin concerns then that's great! Using sunscreen is the best thing you can do to protect against premature aging. Love the Natio daily defence moisturiser too.

    • The ordinary is for people who know skincare ingredients and can be overwhelming for the normal person.
