I look for two things in a conditioner, moisture and the ability for it to assist in detangling my hair. This was pretty good in doing both. It has the same floral scent as the shampoo and has a lovely thickness to it. What I really liked was that it had enough slip to it that my comb glided through my hair with minimal tangles. It also rinsed easily and left no residue. While I like the conditioner more than the shampoo, neither would take the place of my usual shampoo and conditioner.
I have to admit that I had low expectations for this shampoo due to my hair type. I'm a natural with kinky 4b/c hair. I was expecting my hair to be a tangled, dry mess. Fortunately, that wasn't the case. First off, the shampoo smells amazing, a nice floral scent but not too overpowering. I also noticed the scent did linger once I rinsed my hair, which I didn't mind at all. While it didn't totally dry out my hair, I didn't find it completely moisturizing either. I do feel that it cleansed my scalp really well and for that reason, I will use it on occasion but will stick to my usual shampoo for the level of moisture that I desire.
I purchased this from Hautelook during a sale on Kevyn Aucoin products. The shade I have is bloodroses, a pretty vampy type of color. I will admit I immediately thought of Copenhagen soft matte lip cream by nyx upon application. The applicator itself is a thin and pointed sponge , which made it easy to navigate around the planes of the lips. The formula is smooth and felt moisturizing as I wore it. It also felt so lightweight on. It is not transfer proof so if that's what you're looking for then this isn't it. I also noticed that it wore off evenly, so no splotchy lips which is a definite plus. I like it but I'm not sure if I would repurchase, especially at the retail price.
I have been using this for about a month and I really like it. I've noticed my skin has become more smooth and has a nice glow to it. It does sting upon application however. That is something I would be mindful of, especially if you have sensitive skin. The Ordinary advises that you can dilute it with your favorite serum or moisturizer. So I do mix a drop of it with my moisturizer as the final step in my nighttime routine. If you can tolerate it, I highly recommend it.
This is a lightweight foundation that provides light coverage. It could be built up but if you're looking for a foundation that will cover everything, this is not it. I apply with a stippling brush and use concealer on the areas that I want more coverage. I found it wore pretty well for the few hours I had it on but I don't think it is labeled as a long wearing foundation. The shade range is pretty decent, so I think there could be s match for nearly everyone. Recommended.
I have been extremely pleased with The Ordinary as a whole. Products that work at an affordable price? Who wouldn't love that? I don't use the salicylic acid on a daily basis however, just as a spot treatment when the occasional pimple pops up. It does this weird foaming up when I apply. I thought at first I didn't do a good job at rinsing my cleanser off. But that wasn't the case. I can apply this at night and by the morning the size of my pimple is significantly reduced and is gone in a few days. I have repurchased a second time and will continue to do so.
I honestly was intrigued yet appalled by this item. The thought of applying snail Nixon to my face initially disgusted me. Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to purchase it. It's just ok. I really can't tell if it is doing anything for my skin. I noticed a slight increase in the moisture in my skin but nothing that would make me want to repurchase.
