THE INKEY LIST Collagen Serum – Names

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

Unicorn tears – if a brand decides to name their products like that, they lost me as a customer for sure. I prefer a less romantic, more to the point approach, which is why I get along so very well with The Ordinary products: The name is what is inside the bottle.

Fancy? No. But easy to work with for sure!

I recently learned the hard way though that seemingly straight forward names can be misleading! You see, when I placed my THE INKEY LIST order, I hesitated before clicking “Add to basket” when it came to THE INKEY LIST Collagen. It was recommended by Caroline Hirons, but the science behind topically applied collagen is sparse, to say the least.

It was only when I received the product that I realized my mistake: THE INKEY LIST Collagen does, in fact, not contain collagen. It targets collagen production with an amazing cocktail of peptides!

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2 % + B5 – #firstworldproblems

Is the “feels” side of a product important to you? Or is the sensual experience secondary, as long as a product delivers?

And isn´t even asking this question the epitome of #firstworldproblems?

I guess it is. If a product delivers ingredientwise, shouldn´t that be the only thing that matters? Why would we spend more just to have a more pleasant experience when applying something?

A question I do ask myself quite often when it comes to The Ordinary products, and one that I have yet to find an answer for.

But I have learned, the “feels” do matter to me, and, within reason of course, I am willing to pay extra just because something feels nicer.

Last product to proove that? The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2 % + B5

The Ordinary Serum Foundation – Habits

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

I know many a blogger out there started their blog to justify a spending habit that is borderline hoarding. And I am no exception! “I want to write about it!” is a common excuse when yet another red lipstick makes its way into my basket. (But then again, who blogs about a single lipstick anymore? I´ll buy the whole line!)

Mr. Loca has long learned not to question the sheer amount of parcels appearing on our doorstep.

And while I am very good at actually finishing stuff (proof are my empties videos) and my shopping is much more mindful, I am not immune to buying stuff I actually did know in the first place I wouldn´t really use.

Latest one? The Ordinary Serum Foundation. I prefer my base to be matte, long lasting and at least medium coverage, none of which it claims to be.

But of course I put it to the test anyway!
