Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 240ml

THE ORDINARY

Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 240ml

$8

Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. The Ordinary's 7% Toning Solution offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity, while also working to improve the appearance of skin texture with continued use. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepper berry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. It is also further enhanced by ginseng root and aloe vera for both visible radiance and soothing benefits. Use ideally in the PM, no more frequently than once per day. After cleaning, saturate a cotton pad with the formula and sweep across face and neck. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes. Do not rinse off. Continue with additional skin treatments as needed. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration. Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in the directions. buy from Harvey Nichols
Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone 30ml

$7

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant and its pure form of L-Ascorbic Acid has been shown to help reverse multiple signs of skin ageing while brightening the skin. The Ordinary's formula provides 30% pure L-Ascorbic Acid which remains completely stable due to the absence of water. Due to the presence of very light silicones, it feels smooth on the skin despite the suspension format of the formulation, avoiding the short-lived gritty feeling of The Ordinary's original Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% formula. Apply a small amount to face in the AM or the PM (PM preferred). A tingling sensation can be expected after application. If this sensation is too strong, this formula can be diluted on each application with your favourite serum or cream. Note: The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically. With such format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin's tolerance to such high exposure is elevated. If the sensation is too strong to tolerate, the formula can be mixed on each application with other creams or serums of your preference. buy from Harvey Nichols
"B Oil 30ml"

THE ORDINARY

"B Oil 30ml"

$10

B" Oil solubilizes a purified form of micro-algae in a blend of squalane and oils of marula, argan, baobab, pataua, brazil nut, inca inchi, rosehip and borage to support healthy skin defence and enhance radiance while quenching free radicals and helping balance pro-irritant mediators. The Ordinary's formula imparts a golden green hue and a mild herbal odour as a result of its high micro-algae concentration. Notes: Supplied in UV-protective packaging. Apply a few drops daily or as needed to entire face ideally after water-based treatments. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Caprylic/capric triglyceride, squalane, crambe abyssinica seed oil, bisabolol, simmondsia chinensis seed oil, ethylhexyl stearate, isochrysis galbana extract, adansonia digitata seed oil, argania spinosa kernel oil, borago officinalis seed oil, rosa canina seed oil, sclerocarya birrea seed oil, oenocarpus bataua fruit oil, plukenetia volubilis seed oil, bertholletia excelsa seed oil, solanum lycopersicum (tomato) fruit extract, hydroxymethoxyphenyl decanone, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract, tocopherol." buy from Harvey Nichols
Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA 100ml

THE ORDINARY

Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA 100ml

$8

Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) are elements that keep the outer layer of the skin protected and well-hydrated. NMF are made up of multiple amino acids, fatty acids, triglycerides, urea, ceramides, phospholipids, glycerin, saccharides, sodium PCA, hyaluronic acid and many other compounds that are naturally present in the skin. The Ordinary's formula offers non-greasy hydration that acts as a direct topical supplement of impaired Natural Moisturizing Factors components. It contains 11 amino acids, glycerin, hyaluronic acid and other compounds, offering immediate hydration and lasting results with continued use. Apply after serums as needed for effective surface hydration. buy from Harvey Nichols
Amino Acids + B5 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Amino Acids + B5 30ml

$7

The Ordinary's concentrated solution includes Amino Acids and Amino Acid derivatives creating a combined total concentration of 17% (by weight). This resembles the composition of Amino Acids found in the skin's own Natural Moisturising Factors and provides enhanced barrier support, elasticity, osmotic balance and desquamation. The formulation also includes a 5% (by weight) concentration of D-Panthenol which is a pro-vitamin of vitamin B5 to provide surface and below-surface hydration while aiding in skin repair and anti-irritant functions. Amino Acids + B5 offers non-greasy hydration support for the maintenance of healthy, functioning skin. It may cause a temporary tingling sensation upon application. If desired, the formula can be mixed with other serums or creams upon application to reduce its strength. Apply a few drops to face in the AM and PM before creams. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. If the sensation is too strong to tolerate, the formula can be mixed with other creams or serums of your preference before each application to reduce the strength. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to our in-depth guide to patch testing. Keep out of reach of children. buy from Harvey Nichols
AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 30ml

THE ORDINARY

AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 30ml

$7

Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin's topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. The Ordinary's combined 32% AHA/BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and for improved skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use. It contains a studied Tasmanian pepper berry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use and is further supported with a cross polymer form of hyaluronic acid for comfort, vitamin B5 to assist healing and black carrot as an antioxidant. Use ideally in the PM, no more frequently than twice per week. Clean face and wait for skin to dry. Do not use on wet skin. Apply evenly across face and neck using your fingertips. Leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. This low viscosity solution is intended to be used as a masque. Do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration. Notes: 1. This formula contains a very high concentration of free acids. We recommend use only if you are an experienced user of acid exfoliation and your skin is not sensitive. 2. While exfoliating acids can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in the directions provided. buy from Harvey Nichols
Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% 30ml

$11

The Ordinary's formula combines two of the most powerful brightening agents in skincare: pure Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin, both solubilised in a completely water free formula for ideal stability. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of aging, while Alpha Arbutin is a highly-purified biosynthetic active ingredient that reduces the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone. Apply a few drops to face in the AM and PM as part of your skincare regimen. Use sun protection in the AM. Note: Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin are less stable in formulations that contain water and use of them combined in formulations containing water is highly discouraged. This formulation is a water-free, stable solution, and may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds after application, despite the fact that it is completely free of oil. buy from Harvey Nichols
Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 30ml

$7

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The molecular size of HA determines its depth of delivery in the skin. The Ordinary's vegan formulation combines low, medium- and high-molecular weight HA, as well as a next-generation HA crosspolymer at a combined concentration of 2% for multi-depth hydration in an oil-free formula. This system is supported with the addition of vitamin B5 which also enhances surface hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is found in the skin naturally but its natural function within the skin is not hydration. Many products have used HA to claim hydration benefits, but HA is too large of a molecule to penetrate the skin and instead sits on the surface and can draw moisture out of the skin making the surface feel soft and hydrated temporarily, while making you feel like you need more HA after the product is rinsed. This formula uses three forms of HA with varying molecular weights, as well as an HA crosspolymer, to offer multi-depth hydration and visible plumping without drawing water out of the skin solely to improve temporary surface hydration. Apply a few drops to face AM and PM before creams. buy from Harvey Nichols
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 30ml

$6

Niacinamide (vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. The Ordinary offers a high 10% concentration of this vitamin that is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity. Note: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits. Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams. If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid). buy from Harvey Nichols
Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% 30ml

$7

Found in grains, Azelaic Acid is produced naturally by yeast that lives on normal skin. It brightens the skin tone while visibly improving the evenness of skin texture and reducing the look of blemishes. It is a multi-functional support ingredient for all skin types and also acts as an effective antioxidant. The Ordinary's formula offers a very high 10% concentration of high-purity Azelaic Acid in a lightweight cream-gel system. Apply to face AM and/or PM to improve visible brightness and the appearance of skin texture. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Use sun protection during the day. buy from Harvey Nichols
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F 30ml

$17

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of ageing. Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate is an oil-soluble derivative of vitamin C that can be used in higher concentrations without drawbacks. It is one of the most stable derivatives of vitamin C but, being a derivative, its potency will not be directly comparable to pure L-Ascorbic Acid. It is provided by The Ordinary in this oil-format formula in combination with vitamin F, also known as essential fatty acids. Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmiate has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits. Apply a few drops to the entire face in the AM and/or PM. buy from Harvey Nichols
Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 30ml

$7

The Ordinary's light-textured formula contains an extremely high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG) from green tea leaves. Independent studies have shown that topical use of each of caffeine and EGCG can help reduce looks of puffiness and of dark circles in the eye contour. Additional studies have shown that caffeine can also reduce the appearance of cellulite. Massage a small amount onto the eye contour AM and PM. buy from Harvey Nichols
Marine Hyaluronics 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Marine Hyaluronics 30ml

$7

The Ordinary's Marine Hyaluronics brings together lightweight marine-derived water reservoirs that attract and hold water like hyaluronic acid (HA) but are lighter than HA in texture and feel. The formula contains exopolysaccharides from skin-friendly marine bacteria, Hawaiian red algae, Glycoproteins from Antarctic marine sources, microfiltered blue-green algae and several health-supporting amino acids. All marine derivatives in Marine Hyaluronics are sourced sustainably. The total concentration of active ingredients in this formula is 23%. Apply a few drops to face AM and PM before creams. buy from Harvey Nichols
Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% 30ml"

THE ORDINARY

Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% 30ml"

$32

The Ordinary's "Buffet" combines a comprehensive array of studied technologies to target multiple signs of aging at once. The "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% formula differs from the original "Buffet" as this formula includes a 1% concentration of pure Copper Peptides, increasing its focus on overall skin health. The natural role of these peptides, as found in human plasma, includes supporting a wide range of skin health functions like maintaining normal immune function, collagen synthesis, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses. The total concentration of active technologies is 26.1%. Apply to the entire face in the AM and PM after cleaning buy from Harvey Nichols
Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA 30ml

$8

The Ordinary's formula is a concentrated serum with purified alpha arbutin and hyaluronic acid. Alpha Arbutin reduces the looks of spots and hyperpigmentation. It's used at a high 2% concentration versus a standard concentration of 1% and supported with a next-generation form of hyaluronic acid for enhanced delivery. Alpha Arbutin is much stronger in effect than Arbutin or Beta Arbutin. Apply a few drops to face in the AM and PM as part of your skincare regimen. Use sun protection in the AM. buy from Harvey Nichols
100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 30ml

THE ORDINARY

100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 30ml

$10

The Ordinary's formulation uses 100% pure Rosehip Seed Oil that is both cold-pressed and organic. Rosehip Seed Oil is rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid and pro-vitamin A, all of which degrade when the oil extraction process involves heat. While cold-pressed extraction is complex, it preserves all of the quality of this important oil which has been shown to reduce signs of photo-ageing and many other skin conditions. Apply once a day to the face, ideally at bedtime after application of water-based treatments. buy from Harvey Nichols
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% 30ml

$9

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of ageing. In its pure form, vitamin C is unstable in water. The Ordinary's Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (MAP) is a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C. It is more stable in water but it is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. It is compatible with water but higher concentrations cannot be offered in a low-viscosity serum format and requires emulsification to form a cream. This formula is a light cream that offers 10% pure MAP (very high solubilized concentration). Aside from the general benefits of pure vitamin C, MAP has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits, more so than other derivatives of vitamin C. Apply a small amount of this cream formula to face AM and PM, after application of water-based serums. buy from Harvey Nichols
Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% 30ml

$10

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of ageing. In its pure form, Vitamin C is unstable in water. Ascorbyl Glucoside is a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C. It is much more stable in water but it is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. Being more compatible with water allows for a very pleasant serum texture. It is considered a gold standard of vitamin C derivatives due to its high stability and comfortable use. Aside from the general benefits of pure vitamin C, The Ordinary's Ascorbyl Glucoside has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits. Apply a few drops to face AM and PM. buy from Harvey Nichols
Argireline Solution 10% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Argireline Solution 10% 30ml

$7

The Ordinary's Argireline Solution 10% is a lightweight serum with 10% Argireline Peptide Complex. Controlled studies have shown that Argireline improves the appearance of facial areas prone to developing dynamic folds and lines, including around the eyes and in the forehead area. Arigreline is a trademark owned by Barcelona-based Lipotec. Apply a few drops on the forehead and around the eyes twice daily before heavier treatments. Note: Studies have shown that the water content of formulations does impact the utility level of topical Argireline and specifically that higher water content results in better utility. This formulation is water-based and avoids oils, esters and silicones. buy from Harvey Nichols
100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder 20g

THE ORDINARY

100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder 20g

$6

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces the appearance of signs of aging. The Ordinary's formula offers a very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder that visibly targets the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness, and signs of aging and is formulated to be mixed with other treatments (except those containing Niacinamide or EUK 134). Mix a small amount with other treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to face in the AM or the PM. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. Do not mix with formulations containing Niacinamide or EUK 134. Note: The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically. With such format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin's tolerance to such high exposure is elevated. Caution: If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with EUK 134 or Niacinamide (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and EUK 134/Niacinamide in the AM). Otherwise, EUK 134/ Niacinamide can affect the integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid). buy from Harvey Nichols
Mandelic Acid 10% + HA 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Mandelic Acid 10% + HA 30ml

$7

The Ordinary's Mandelic Acid 10% + HA (with AHA and hyaluronic acid) offers superficial dermal peeling that is gentler than other alpha hydroxy acids. The molecular weight of mandelic acid is 152.1 daltons which is larger than other alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid is 76.0 daltons, for example). This larger size allows mandelic acid to penetrate the skin more slowly which in turn makes it very gentle and suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. You don't need a concentration of more than 10%, because then you would simply be achieving an indirect peeling strength that is more easily offered through lower percentages of glycolic acid. Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration. Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. buy from Harvey Nichols
Lactic Acid 5% + HA 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Lactic Acid 5% + HA 30ml

$7

Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. The Ordinary's 5% formulation offers very mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximising effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic. Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.) buy from Harvey Nichols
Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% 30ml

$6

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant and its pure form of L-Ascorbic Acid has been shown to reverse multiple signs of skin ageing while brightening the skin. The Ordinary's water-free, silicone-free formula provides 23% pure L-Ascorbic Acid which remains completely stable due to the absence of water. The system is supported with addition of dehydrated spheres of Hyaluronic Acid to offer visible surface smoothing alongside the benefits of Vitamin C. This treatment is ideally applied at bedtime. Apply a small amount to face in the AM or the PM. A slight tingling sensation can be expected after application. buy from Harvey Nichols

Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution 30ml

THE ORDINARY

Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution 30ml

$20

An exceptionally-stable solution of 15% Ethylated Ascorbic Acid, The Ordinary's water-free formula offers a direct acting approach to achieving a radiant, healthy-looking skin tone. Unlike other vitamin C derivatives, this ethylated form acts directly like vitamin C and is closer in molecular weight for faster visible results. It also offers a much better stability profile than any known direct-acting form of vitamin C. Apply a few drops to face AM and PM. Since this formulation is a water-free solution, it may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds after application, despite the absence of all oils. buy from Harvey Nichols
100% Organic Cold-Pressed Borage Seed Oil 30ml

THE ORDINARY

100% Organic Cold-Pressed Borage Seed Oil 30ml

$5

The Ordinary's formulation contains 100% pure Borage Seed Oil that is sustainably-sourced, organic and cold pressed.
