It worked for me – it’s hydrating and creates a beautiful base for the rest of my skincare. I’ll add that I use it with VC, even though TO said not to.

This serum seems to help with my dry skin. I’m using it twice a day along with TO’s Amino Acids + B6. I see both of these becoming part of my permanent skincare routine.

Obsessed. Love it. One of your best serums.

I love how it sinks in. Lovely calming serum especially if you did some exfoliation prior

1. What is the difference between Soothing & Barrier Support Serum & NIOD MG Modulating Glucosides? The Ordinary Soothing & Barrier Support Serum is a multi-ingredient formulation designed to provide a multi-functional, holistic approach to targeting visible redness, supporting skin hydration, and helping to repair a damaged skin barrier. NIODs Modulating Glucoside also targets signs of skin sensitivity, especially the appearance of redness, while supporting skin hydration and skin barrier repair. However, this formulation includes active ingredients that work to soothe the skin immediately, meaning MG works on immediate-term as well as long-term feelings and signs of sensitivity.
