The Ordinary is Tik Tok's New Worthy Skincare Obsession

The Ordinary is Tik Tok's New Worthy Skincare Obsession

This brand went viral on Tik Tok for its amazing products, and it really is worth the praise.

The Ordinary is Tik Tok's New Worthy Skincare Obsession
  • I was skeptical about the fad for The Ordinary products on Tik Tok because their products are so affordable, especially with a high concentration of chemicals.
  • I decided to try the product out for myself to see if it was worth the hype that several popular creators were giving it.
  • I have very sensitive skin, so I decided to take one for the team and see if their high concentration products would do damage to my skin.
  • To say the least, I was surprised with how well the product works.

I found this product through many recommendations by popular creators on Tik Tok, so I thought that if these creators were getting lots of attention for their recommendations, they must work. I do not always trust popular creators because of endorsements and such, but many normal people duetted the popular creators to say that their products really do work.

The Ordinary has many products, and most of them come in glass bottles with a dropper inside. Most are clear liquids, but some are other colors such as red or brown. When The Ordinary products are used, most of them are a little sticky at first, but will try to a mostly matte finish. You rub the products on lightly to the skin until they dry into the skin. Each product has different instructions on when to use the product in your skincare routine.

I have very sensitive, dry skin as an aftermath of Acutane, and I have not had problems with the product at all. In fact, I have not had any whitehead breakouts since I started using the product. I personally have been using the Hyaluronic acid 3% solution and the Niacinamide 10% solution and I have seen improvements in my skin with both.

The product itself comes in a glass bottle, which is recyclable and better for the environment than plastic bottles, which is a great plus for me. I also believe that it is suitable for most skin types, as long as some of the chemicals do not bother your skin. If you have acne or very sensitive skin, I would recommend either trying out a product or calling a dermatologist first to make sure the chemicals will not hurt your skin type.

This product really stands out because of the quality of skincare for such a low price. The Ordinary is doing a great job with making sure that anyone and everyone is capable of getting to their products, which I know my bank account is thankful for. For its low price, it does better for my skin than many of my expensive creams I have used in the past. This is the product that truly showed me that price is not everything when it comes to good product.

The only real downside to this product is that the bottles the product is offered in are relatively small. But, on the other hand, the bottles are very inexpensive so it is not too much of a burden to buy more bottles. There really have not been any other downfalls to the products yet for me.

You should buy this product because it is worth the bang for your buck. I recommend reading through their product list and figuring out which product would be best for the problem you are correcting on your skin. There are many other skin boosting serums, but I believe this one is the best and definitely deserves the attention it gets.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

We have got to create a safer work environment for people with disabilities.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
