How long does a bottle of The Ordinary last?
I did the very boring test of seeing how many drops were in a 30ml bottle of The Ordinary. I worked it out to be around 300 drops, but I did get a bit bored, to be honest, so it was probably a little more.
The solutions vary from product to product; some products are thicker than others; some people will use more product than others, making it impossible for someone to tell you exactly how long a bottle will last you.
A bottle of Niacinamide might last you 3 months, whilst a bottle of Rosehip Seed Oil might last you 6 months. Squalane might last you 4 months, but Hemi-Squalane might last 2 months because it´s so much thinner and trickier to apply.
Below is a rough guide but most importantly what the Deciem Addicts say.
How long does a 30ml bottle of The Ordinary last?
- 300 drops
- 2 drops once a day = 150 days/5 months
- 2 drops twice a day = 75 days/2-3 months

The Ordinary 30ml Bottles
Deciem says to apply 2/3 drops of serum and, from the creams, a small pea-size amount. As I have mentioned above, we all use different amounts. Some of us like a thin coating, whilst others love to slap it all on. Some products are a lot thinner than others making it harder to apply whilst others a slightly thicker.
The Ordinary PAO Period After Opening
When starting out with The Ordinary, it is easy to get carried away and fill your basket up because it all looks so cheap. If you have too many products on the go, you will not be able to use them all up within the PAO (period after opening). this is why I highly recommend buying a complete routine with just a few products
