I’ve been traveling a lot. One thing that I always had to keep in mind was my skin care supply. Did I have everything? Was I running out of something? Did I need to order something new?
Well, in my recent traveling adventures, I had to fly to Toronto last minute. A four day trip to Ukraine turned into a month long trip to Canada, so my skin care supplies were very low.
However, I ordered a bunch of The Ordinary products a while back, and I had to ship them to Toronto even though I live in Paris, because that’s where my billing address is.

Was it luck or divine design?
I ended up with a new set of products, and the perfect amount of time to see if they were worth it or not.
I was most interested in trying their Vitamin C serum, Retinoids, acids, makeup…And so I ordered pretty much every product that I wanted to try, and then realised Deciem had stores all over Toronto, so I went out and got additional products without needing to pay shipping! #winning
Why The Ordinary?
I have worked out pretty much the perfect skin care routine for acne-prone skin, if I do say so myself. Trying new products is not something I love to do, because often times the results suck.

However, I heard such good things about the company, the ingredients they use are awesome, the logic and philosophy behind the products is mostly very sound, and frankly, the PRICE point was very enticing.
I mean, $6.70 CAD for a foundation? I’ll take two, thanks.

Keep in mind that I’m still in the process of discovering these products, and I’m not making recommendations yet. The reviews are coming, don’t you worry! 😃
But in order for my reviews to mean something, I need to try these products for at least a month, and try them intelligently — not all at once because that would be crazy!
Stay tuned for details on my experiences with these cool products…
