THIS moisturizer. Amazing find. Ultra-moisturizing but suitable for my oily skin. Perfect for sensitive skin. Not watery, which is a trait I hate in moisturizers. Basically, this is the perfect moisturizer for my skin and I am super happy I found it! in reviews
...calm down since beginning this product. Highly recommend Dry/42 year old dry skin.in reviews

I love the ordinary products and I wanted to incorporate azelaic acid into my routine to help reduce redness and even my skin texture so I picked up this one because I’ve had great luck with this brand. I’ve been using it for a few months now and it’s done wonders! Hasn’t caused me to breakout plus my skin feels smoother and my redness had noticeably reduced! This is also very inexpensive but it doesn’t come with a lot of product, luckily it only takes a very small amount. The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

Wonderful product. I have been using this for a few months now and it’s great. Really helps with brightening dark spots. It’s kinda thick and goes on like a silicone texture. Kinda looks matte when on. I would def recommend this to anyone fighting dark spots or texture The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

I had acne on my cheek area due to wearing a face mask all day. Once started to use this product and the acne started to get better and it disappeared after some days, it’s also helping my skin texture and dark spots. It is also very gentle with my skin. I absolutely recommend it to get rid of the bacteria on the skin.

I really like this product. It definitely helps with my rosacea. I like that it gives a lighter and matte finish after I apply it. It’s easy to use under my makeup and goes on smoothly.

While I think the product works well the formula is not my favorite. It almost feels like putting silicone on your face. It isn’t harsh on the skin but doesn’t layer well with other products. Its the right idea but not so good execution. Will not continue to use.

I use this stuff every single day, twice a day. It has helped my face soooo much. It’s gotten rid of fine lines, bumps, texture, redness, literally everything! I love this stuff!!! And you only need a little! The only thing I dislike is that it doesn’t come in a bigger tube!

A bit of background: I have PCOS and had bad cystic acne on my face for over a year. As a result, I was left with BAD, red scarring and this has helped heal it DRAMATICALLY. The first pic is me recently, no makeup or editing. The second pic is me before using this product, WITH makeup on. Now let’s get into the features of this product: Smell: nothing notable. Scent-free is the way to go for skincare imo and The Ordinary does a good job with that. Texture: feels almost like a silicone primer that glides onto your face and has a smoothing effect— think the Benefit Porefessional if you’ve ever tried that. PROS: - EFFECTIVE: I’ve been able to heal some of my worst scarring with this, along with the use of retinoids. - IMPROVES TEXTURE BIG TIME - AFFORDABLE: you really don’t need much. If you ration your product, this will last you a while. CONS: - MUST BE CONSISTENT: you’re not going to see change over night. I went through a whole tube before I really noticed a big difference. That being said, you WILL notice a great improvement in your texture so it’s worth while. - I believe this can only be used at night because it increases your sensitivity to the sun - DRYING AF: be sure to moisturize I can’t emphasize it enough. Use too much and it’ll make your face feel like a Popeye’s biscuit. Less is more. Overall: worth it.

Silicone needs silicone. If you use this over/under makeup, find makeup with silicone. I would use this exclusively at night, however, and put it on dead last. Good luck!

The benefits that it helps with uneven skin tone and reducing the size of your pores. It doesn’t smell the greatest and depending what other products you use may cause some tingling.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Do you guys recommend. I had little bumps on my forehead could this product help?
Brooke B. il y a 3 mois
I feel like many products could help with the tiny bumps bc i have them on my cheekbones, but they are not as noticeable anymore. I use the PUR pore cleanser, dermalogica clearing serum, the ordinary vitamin c suspension, the azelaic acid then HA and it has changed my face. Has helped with the bumps, dullness, acne scars, blackheads, I mean all of them together are the holy grail for me!
