As lifted from The Ordinary’s website “Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) are elements that keep the outer layer of the skin protected and well-hydrated. NMF are made up of multiple amino acids, fatty acids, triglycerides, urea, ceramides, phospholipids, glycerin, saccharides, sodium PCA, hyaluronic acid and many other compounds that are naturally present in the skin”.
This product is essentially a facial moisturiser with a fancy, scientific name, used as the last step of your skin care routine. It costs £4.90 for 30ml and comes in a hygienic tube, which is something I appreciate. Why do so many moisturisers have to come in pots?!
I absolutely love this stuff, the texture is wonderful and it feels so satisfying on the skin. It offers glorious surface hydration in a non greasy way whilst providing a lovely supple feeling; it feels that nice that I was actually a bit surprised to see it is oil free!
I didn’t think I would love such a simple product so much but I do. It’s the simple effectiveness that makes it so great. It has no fragrance and I can’t see how any skin type would have a problem with this product. Delightful!
I’ve used two tubes and I have a third in storage. The 30ml tube doesn’t last that long so it would be nice to have a bigger tube. I’ve since seen that on The Ordinary’s website there is the option of a 100ml tube which is fantastic – but not in stock at time of writing. I bet it’s lovely to use on the body also.
Big thumbs up from me.
Love Nicole xxxx
