The Ordinary Glycolic Acid

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid Deodorant
  • I use The Ordinary Glycolic Acid on my elbows.
  • I use The Ordinary Glycolic Acid or any other The Ordinary Lactic Acid on my lower legs for razor bumps, ingrown hairs, etc! The Glycolic Acid, I apply to my legs with a cotton pad, and I’ve tried a few drops of Lactic 10% mixed with lotion for my legs too. Both work. FINALLY smooth!
  • I’ve used The Ordinary Glycolic Acid as a deodorant for about a year now..and hell yeah it works! I sometimes apply with a cotton pad or add it to an empty spray bottle.

The Ordinary Squalane Oil

The Ordinary Squalane Oil
  • Squalane on my toenails at night after wiping with glycolic.
  • Squalane is amazing for my scalp. I use it at night before washing my hair.
  • Squalane works best on tangled hair.
  • I love Squalane on my lips and use an old toothbrush to gently exfoliate with the oil. Leaves my lips feeling lovely and smooth.

  • The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil in hair to help keep it healthy!
  • I’ll rub Rose hip oil into my cuticles before bed.

The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics

  • For those of you who do 7 Skins (basically 7 layers of a hydrating toner), Marine Hyaluronics works wonders if you´ve run out of your usual toner. 30ml won´t last long with 7 layers!
  • Argan oil and Marine Hylauronics in my hair make it sleek and glossy
  • This worked wonders as an emergency for calm frizzy hair whilst away on holiday!

Lactic Acid

  • I use the Lactic Acid on my heels…no more cracks.
