Hello! How is it going? It’s been a while since I brought you a review of The Ordinary, so after a while using this serum Matrixyl 10% + HA I want to tell you my sensations so you can get to know it a little better. Do you want to know a little bit more about him? Let’s go!
BRAND: THE ORDINARY
PRODUCT: MATRIXYL 10% + HA
SKIN TYPE: ALL
RECOMMENDED FOR: UNISEX
As I said, I have not published reviews of my products of The Ordinary in a while. Those who know me well know that it’s one of my favorite cosmetics brands. I think their philosophy of creating products with a great formulation for a moderate price is a great way to bring quality cosmetics to everyone. In this case, I’ll tell you about a serum of peptides and hyaluronic acid that will help you to keep your skin elastic, firm and hydrated. The main function of peptides is to warn our skin that collagen levels are low and that it needs to produce more to keep it firm and elastic. Sooo with this serum we’re going to make our skin look younger.
The product is transparent in color, without a recognizable scent. It is quite dense, but does not have the stickiness of the Hyaluronic Acid + B5, which I spoke about in this post. After applying it, it leaves a soft, silky feeling on the skin.
Among its ingredients, as I said, we can find peptides, specifically a combination of them for a more effective result, and hyaluronic acid, which helps to keep the skin hydrated, attracting water to obtain a healthier look.
The packaging is the usual one from the brand, with simple and minimalist lines and its typical drop container. If you have read other of my reviews of The Ordinary products (like this one, of the Caffeine Solution 5% + ECGC eye contour or this one, of the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 serum) you’ll know that I love these packages, they’re are a great way to use the right amount of product.
I’m very happy with this serum. Lately I have been worrying a little more than usual about elasticity and the first lines of expression, so I know that using it I help my skin to stay firm. I’ll probably buy it again when I finish it, although there’s still quite some time until that moment arrives.
HOW TO USE:
Before applying this serum you must clean and tone your skin well to achieve its best performance. Being a peptide-based product remember that you should not combine it with products with high concentrations of acids (so do not combine it with your vitamin C) to achieve a better result. After massaging the product inside your skin with your fingertips, you just have to finish your routine with the moisturizer and, if it is in the morning, sunscreen.
This graphic aims to help you understand in which part of your skincare routine you should use each product.
You don’t need to do all the steps from this routine (but you should always cleanse, moisturize and use sunscreen).
Remember it’s key to do a patch test every time you consider adding new products to your skincare routine.
Have you ever used any other peptide-based products before? You know that if you have any doubts after reading the post you can leave me a comment and I will reply as soon as possible.
