I love the ordinary products. I have all of those mentioned above:-) I can see a difference.

I found this really helpful. Can I ask what moisturiser you used after the the Vitamin C24? My skin reacts to many moisturisers including Olay. Not tried the 7 in 1 though. Will give it a go.

I find the La Roche-Posay Toleraine moisturisers the best for my sensitive skin, the Ultra at night and the Light in the morning under makeup.  And I do even use the eye contour one too.  Yes, I have too many lotions and potions on my bathroom cabinet!

A daily serum works wonders. I’ve tried them all, from exxy ones well over $100 like dr aspect and ultraceuticals to mid range like body shop drops of youth and cheapies, the ordinary hylaronic acid. Makes a huge difference. Serum every morning before all other products. My dermatologist highly recommends vitamin C products and also glows about Olay regenerist.

Also used to spend a bomb on beauty clinic peels and microdermabrasion but getting the same effect at home scrubbing once every few weeks with one of those abrasive shower glove thingies.

I’m 50 this year and get told I have great skin, it just gets a bit dry in winter so needs serums and scrubbing.

I've used a lot, but  Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer worked for me

Rosehip oil and/or olive oil followed by Moogoo msn moisturiser. Pretty cheap!
I also love A'kin products.
My skin is pretty dry and very sensitive to most things especially fragrance.
I HATE fragrance in my skin care.

I have recently started using The Ordinary skincare, the retinol and also the moisturiser both of which I use at night. It’s fantastic and my skin is less dry and smoother even after only two weeks. Was recommended by the dermatologist as being as good if not better than many expensive products. Am definitely a convert!

I am early 40s and started using Dermaviduals about 6 months ago.  I use the cleanser along with the moisturiser and I can honestly say my skin feels the best it's been in a long time!

I had a Dermaviduals facial this week, and 3 days later my skin is still glowing.

Where do you get “the ordinary” products from?

I use L’Oréal and Olay night creams too and I always make sure I use a daily UV under my foundation and remove makeup at night... in my mid 40’s and I don’t look it at all..

Adore online. I found it a bit confusing as there were so many products, that to my untrained eye seemed to mostly do similar. But read through each one carefully and have just tried two to start. One retinol and one moisturiser. Keeping it simple! I don't like complex beauty routines lol. I actually look forward each night to removing makeup and using the products. My skin is so smooth the next morning. In the spring/summer I'll add my usual moisturiser with sunscreen.

I've started using Go-To products this year  (Zoe Foster-Blake owned and run). Really enjoying her Face Hero (oil). *I'm late 40's.

I love beauty and the bees.  Packed with all sorts of good things for your face and minimal nasties.

Not quite 40 yet but at the moment I am using Moogoo Anti-ageing SPF 15 face cream. I am allergic to alot of things in most moisturisers and Moogoo is the only one so far that hasn't set my face on fire.

Seems the older I get the more sensitive my skin gets :annoyed:  .

After trying to use everything under the sun to exfoliate my skin so it does not look like sandpaper..... I finally tried something I had purchased ages ago....

Neogen gauze peeling green tea

A little cleaning pad that moisturises and exfoliates.... and actually works easily and quickly. I used one yesterday.... immediately my face felt like it does after a facial.... today it still feels AMAZING. No winter flakey 43yo skin.

You can get online (as Korean skincare) for $35 for about 30 of them. Meant to be used 2 times a week.

Same here! Are you me???

My face cream is Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion. Have been using it for at least 15 years and I find it really good.

I'm really keen to try this as I too have heard lots and lots of good feedback about it!
I am almost 44 but despite my age still have quite an oily T zone with only slightly dryer cheeks, so finding a moisturiser that isnt too heavy is actually really hard for me. I have tried soooo many and am currently using one by Ole Henriksen (for oily skin)
Do you think I would find the Clinique one too heavy??

I started using The Ordinary products after reading this thread back in April, got a selection in Myer (yay they are cheap!) and my skin looks heaps better.  No more dehydrated wrinkled forehead.

Now I just need a cream for my red cheeks.

I use Dr Aspect serums and face cream. I found I had to really step up my skincare once I hit 40.
