THE ORDINARY HAUL ¦ AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ¦ Rosehip Oil ¦ REVIEW

The beauty world has taken over with The Ordinary products and it's no wonder when the items are as cheap as chips and just as or if not MORE effective as the higher end skincare products we lust after daily.

During a trip to London several weeks ago, I visited the Deceim store in Covent Garden which is an umbrella company for NIOD, The Ordinary, Beauty Fountain etc. When in the store, which is quite small with quite a lot of staff but nonetheless, I digress, I picked up the products pictured above.

I was always going to pick up The Ordinary RoseHip 100% cold pressed oil, (£5.90) which is amazing, super hydrating and helps with acne pigmentation. I think I'm on my third bottle! I used to always purchase Trilogy's RoseHip Oil which is exactly the same but starts at £20?! so when I discovered this brand I was very impressed.

Secondly, I picked up the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution a.k.a red mask/ red exfoliating liquid. I have used this twice so far and admittedly I did succumb through social media as it does look quite intense in pictures but it also does work! My skin is super soft, brighter and exfoliated! It is advised to leave on for no longer than 10 minutes as it does tingle and since I am used to wearing acids on my skin I didn't suffer with any extreme sensitivity. I apply this once or twice a fortnight and I'm extremely impressed with results so far.

Lastly, I picked up Niod Photography Fluid in opacity 12% which is in essence an illuminating primer. It's non greasy, looks fantastic in photos (check out my instagram: Sakinahsays), and gives that perfect lit from within glow. I struggle with illuminating primers as I'm quite oily but I always pull this out for evening functions as it really is a game changer especially in photography!

What have been your recent splurges?
