I’ve updated my skincare routine with a new product from The Ordinary. I don’t add new products to my skincare routine that often because I usually repurchase the same products over and over again. Even though I love to try new products, I’ll never be that person who changes her skincare routine every month just for fun. I was surprisingly ecxited to try The Ordinary 100% Niacinamide Powder when it launched and I finally bought it for myself.
Why I bought it? I must admit, I bought The Ordinary 100% Niacinamide Powder because of the hype around it. I was never a fan of their famous niacinamide serum because of the added zinc that irritates my skin. I really like the concept of this product because it’s 100% niacinamide so it doesn’t have any filler ingredients added and the fact that I can use it to make my own DIY cream concoctions is a huge plus.
What are my expectations? A lot of products from The Ordinary are either hit or miss for me but I expect to get good results with this product so I’m not quite sure what to expect. I appreciate a lot when beauty brands release products that can be used in a very personalized way. The only downside I’ve already seen with this product is that the instructions look ridiculous. The teeny tiny spatula that comes in the package isn’t really appropriate for measuring and I’m pretty sure it’ll get lost easily.
How am I going to the use it? I’m going to use the powder mixed with my favourite water-based moisturizer once a day. I won’t be combining it with other products because I want to see how the niacinamide alone works for me. As for the instructions, I’m going to overlook them because I’m pretty sure that I’m able to mix the right amount without having to measure 1/4 scoop with the spatula.
