If you haven’t tried The Ordinary yet, your life is about to fucking change forever. No more looking like polka dot shorts for three months while you wait for a dermo appointment, no more calls from the Visa fraud department asking if you actually spent $350 at Sephora because that seems just too stupid to be anything but identity theft because Visa knows you’re poor. You’ve owed them $800 since you were 18. That fraud prevention worker judging you is all in your past life. This shit will make you squirt gallons. It’s the best invention for women since the tampon.

Hi 🙂 Many of you outsmarted us and very quickly and correctly guessed what product we were launching next (even though we only posted a cryptic photo of a tree growing out of a bottle). Welcome to The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5%. Available online and in our cozy stores around the world. Pycnogenol ® is a powerful antioxidant extracted from the bark of French maritime pine trees (🌲). This powerhouse ingredient contains naturally-occurring procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids that synergistically help maintain healthy levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid within the skin, resulting in enhanced hydration and elasticity. Due to its high affinity for collagen and elastin, Pycnogenol ® is able to selectively bind to and protect these vital proteins from free radical damage and enzymatic degradation. While doing so, it also scavenges the skin for free radicals before they cause oxidative stress and has the ability to recycle oxidised Vitamin C, restoring its activity. It’s generally offered at a very low concentration, so of course, we wanted to offer it at a very high concentration. At 5%, 1-2 drops will suffice for the full face. Use once daily for the maintenance of healthy skin.
If you haven’t heard of The Ordinary, i’s basically science meets skin care meets an affordable pricing model. What a revolutionary idea, right?
If you’re already using this stuff like Paris Hilton used cocaine in the early 2000s, you’re still going to fucking lose it because 50 new products are in the works for 2019! That means cleansers, ladies and lady identifiers. Last summer brought us hair care and face oils so cleansers are the final frontier.
RIP Brandon Truaxe, you sexy fucking genius. We love you.
