The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 30ml, £5.80


'As I entered my late twenties, I noticed the area around my eyes begin to darken, wrinkle and look less hydrated, which is why I was very excited when I discovered The Ordinary's  Caffeine Solution! Morning and night, I use a drop on my index finger and gently rub it in. It’s the first time I’ve used a serum as opposed to a cream or gel, and I really like the silky feeling and the way it glides onto my skin.

Since using the Caffeine Solution, my eyes have had an instant boost! I’ve noticed my under-eyes look brighter and more hydrated. I really love the results, as I think eyes can give a halo effect to your whole face, and this helps to make me feel comfortable going make-up free. I’d recommend giving it a try!'

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 30ml, £5.90

'Heaps of praise for this product incoming! I’ve had trouble in the past with dull, dry skin but The Ordinary never fails to pep it up and their Hyaluronic Acid is a true skincare saviour. It’s the only product I need to get my glow on! I use it twice a day, morning and night, on slightly damp skin so it can work its hydrating magic. It absorbs really well and leaves my face feeling super soft, silky smooth and plump.

I’d recommend it to anyone who needs to rejuvenate and hydrate their skin, as it’s transformed mine! I may have been blessed with a baby face but as the big 3-0 creeps ever closer I need all the help I can get. Fine lines be gone, this bottle is officially my BFF!'

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque, £9.90

'I love using this mask once a week for a deep pore-unclogging session, especially when I feel like a few hormonal spots are about to come out. The best part for me is that my acne-prone skin reacts so well to it (thanks to the salicylic acid) and, unlike a lot of other charcoal or clay-based masks, it doesn’t sting or make your skin feel tight either.

The day after using it, my face feels so refreshed, less congested and visibly clearer. This mask is so affordable and effective, it’s become a holy-grail product for me!'

The Ordinary Balance Set, £25.30

'I've been using The Ordinary's Squalane Cleanser as part of my daily skincare routine. Every day, I cleanse, apply serum, moisturise and then add SPF. I find this cleanser really light and gentle on my skin and, although I don't wear any makeup so can't vouch for that, it removes dirt and oil from my skin, leaving it feeling soft, clean and hydrated. A bonus is that you can apply it directly to your face without water before you rinse it off.'
