I've used several high end hyaluronic acid serums like skinceuticals and skin medication, etc. And this one is just as good for ridiculously cheap. It's soothing, goes on great (I don't wear foundation so can't comment on makeup on top) and plumps my skin. I get a great dewy glow and just really enjoy using it. Soothes my redness by rehydrating. I would definitely repurchase.

Literally you need one drop for both undereyes and pat it in. It tightens and lifts. For me there is no dryness, but at I only use it during the day. Plays well under my concealer. Can't say I've noticed any difference in dark circles but if I am puffy from indulging in too much chips with my wine the night before it does seem to alleviate that ;) At night I use Buffet with Retinol on …Read more

I use this to buffer my retinol at night and I really love it. In the morning I wake up with glowy and plumped up looking skin. TBH I had no idea what peptides were and why I should use them, but I'm 40 this year and when I went to The Ordinary they said it would tie in nicely with the retinol for anti-aging. At this price, I'm willing to try it for a few bottles.

I've recently been trying the Ordinary products to find lower cost dupes for my skincare routine. This seems to me more of a "sealer" for serums and oils you would place underneath. For skin over 35, dry or people who live in a cold climate (Canadian winter!!! EEEK!) then this will likely not be hydrating enough. So I can't fault it for unfulfilled promises, it's not …Read more

I couldn't love this more. After I had my daughter I got little bumps (KP?) on my thighs and buttocks. I tried everything on the market but this worked the best. Love that it's fragrance free. Once I got the bumps under control I didn't have to use it daily so it lasted a bit longer. This makes my skin as smooth as my baby's bum LOL :) Wish it came in a tube so you could …Read more

I bought this searching for a cruelty free brand that wasn’t $30 a tube. I saw good reviews but apparently that’s the old formula.
I don’t like this mascara at all.
It’s very wet and adds length but does so by clumping my lashes together. Gives Zero separation.
Adds NO volume.
Prone to clumps.
And the flakes! By the end of day I’ve got pieces under mg eyes. And God forbid …

I've been on a mission to find a quality cruelty free mascara that performs. This is Canadian made and has added benefit of being hypoallergenic so it's totally non-irritating.
This mascara is just ok. I liked it at first, but by the time I'd had it for two weeks and used a dozen times I found it clumped. Two coats gets me great volume. Colour is very black. And no smudging …

This is a total game changer for me. I will never stop using this product. A friend of mine suggested this one day when I was complaining about my skin. I have mild rosacea, am sensitive, and suffer from hormonal based comedones type acne on my lower cheeks and jawline. I rarely get pimples or pustules. Just blackheads/whiteheads/little bumps.
I am using the P50T which is the only one …

Unfortunately this broke me out :( A shame because I adore the pure oil, and have reviewed that separately. But I didn't find this to be the same calming and nourishing treatment the oil is. It was a nice application, light and fluid like a serum typically is. It's non-irritating to my sensitive skin. But it broke me out every time i tried to use it, so I gave it away.
