We all know too well about the drama and social media WTF that is DECEIM's The Ordinary. Many have loved the products but are so very deterred over the antics of the founder, leading to many thinking - what are the alternatives? In this day and age and considering how competitive the beauty market is currently, many will be pleased to know that there are some fantastic alternatives out there. Whilst these substitutes might not be at the groundbreaking prices The Ordinary is priced at, they are definitely options for those who are looking for more budget friendly alternatives to replace the products they may have used previously. These brands are in no way exorbitantly priced and for what they do, I believe that they may do the task at hand quite well.
Do not get me wrong, what The Ordinary did was in fact quite extraordinary. For me, I found that it encouraged those who might not necessarily be interested in skincare to become interested in what they were applying on their skin. I think it encouraged many more individuals to be more clued in to active ingredients and what these ingredients did for their skin (even if the names of the products were a little confusing). As you may have known from my own personal experiences with The Ordinary products, I thought they were rather meh. I didn't love them and I found that I enjoyed other products in both texture, feel and efficacy so much more.
In this blog post, I hope to offer some alternatives brands to look into for those who may wish to jump ship from The Ordinary or want to step up from what they are currently using in the range. Please note, these are just suggestions and whilst these brands may not offer the extensive line up that The Ordinary has, they do provide some great alternatives.Read More
