Has anyone tried The Ordinary beauty products? I've recently purchased the niacinamide 10% + zinc 1% and I love the concept but I'm not really getting the hang of it! Anyone else?

Yes there are numerous threads here.. I dont know how to link though.

I am using the caffeine solution for my undereye..

Hyaluronic acid ang buffey solution and then top it off with the rosehip oil.

I also have the retinol which I have stopped using for the time being.

My next purchase will be the foundations when they come back in stock. If you live near or around london their shop is in spitalfield and one is opening in covent garden, their sales associate are very helpful.

I use the retinol 1%. Have been using it for a few months now. It can make you skin supersensitive but I have been reading up about retinol and you can use it with moisturiser. I usea very plain nivea [jojoba and vit e] over the top after about an half an hour of retinol. I use retinol twice a week with a few days inbetween. It has made a vast difference to my neck although the next day my skin always looks a bit rubbish and more lined but its because retinol can be drying. it can take up to 6 months for the retinol to work and 12 months for full effects so if you are using persevere. Listen to your skin and if its red stop using for a few days then try again. My skin has definetly got accustomed to it. I dont use any of their other products.
