Ordinary Is The New Luxury

The Ordinary.
Advanced Retinoid 2%, Rosehip Seed Oil, Moroccan Argan Oil

The Ordinary, that is. This line provided by Deciem is beyond affordable for such high quality products. Advanced Retinoid 2%? $9.80... what?! Amazing. Now, all I'm waiting on is a store in New York. They just opened one up in London in Old Spitalfields Market, so I know where my first stop will be when I cross the pond. As if I needed another excuse to return. *checks flights to London*

The texture of these products is very luxurious, as well as the packaging. Very Aesop, if you ask me. The oils are extremely silky, emollient, and palliative. They gradually sink into the skin, leaving a healthy and nourished glow. I saw Tamira Jarrel highlight her skin with oils, so I'm pretty sure that means I should try highlighting my skin with oils. After seeing the dew effect of the rosehip oil paired with the moisturizing benefits, it will most definitely be going on top of my cheekbones.

I'll keep you posted on how the retinoid journey goes. Switching skincare can always lead to interesting things, so follow me on Instagram @nickifrances to check in on the adventure. Have you tried anything from The Ordinary? Let me know what your favorite product is :)
