Our Pick Of The Ordinary’s Non-Skin Care Standouts

As recognisable – and popular – as your favourite A-List celebrity, The Ordinary’s range of purse-friendly yet potent actives has enabled hundreds of thousands to build custom {skin care} routines without breaking the bank. So, to celebrate The Ordinary as our March Brand of the Month, why not take advantage of FREE SHIPPING* across the entire range to elevate your {make up},  {hair care} or {body care} routine too?


If you’re not sure where to begin, no fear, we’ve picked out six of our favourite standout formulas from The Ordinary hair and The Ordinary body ranges to help you take the first step.

Straddling the skin care and hair care category, this {Multi Peptide Lash and Brow Serum} from The Ordinary costs just £12.50 but features 11 key active ingredients (think: four peptide technologies, nourishing ‘Redensyl’ and fortifying ‘Widelash’) to nourish and strengthen your precious {lashes} and {brows}. Simply sweep this concentrated, lightweight serum over your lash line and brows to unlock its seriously impressive results. 

Take The Ordinary from your skin care routine into your make up routine thanks to the brand’s {High-Adherence Silicone Primer}. Mattifying yet hydrating, this high-performance {primer} can be worn alone or under make up to blur imperfections and create an airbrushed finish. Non-greasy, oil-free and featuring advanced adaptive silicones, this pore-minimising primer ensures that make up adheres to skin for longer, so that you can prolong the staying power of your {foundation} with a expertly finished base.

Fuelled by the belief that a healthy {scalp} equals healthy {hair}, this lightweight and non-greasy {Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA for Scalp} serum brings all the benefits of skin care to your scalp, stopping dryness and dehydration in their tracks while also maintaining the integrity of your moisture barrier. Brimming with {hyaluronic acid} and {natural moisturising factors}, it delivers long-time hydration, prevents irritation and enables your strongest strands yet.

One of three hair heroes from The Ordinary, each formulated with the same ingredients-first, results-driven ethos that made their affordable skin care essentials so beloved by Team Cult Beauty, this {Sulphate 4% Cleanser for Body and Hair} is a hardworking double {cleanser} laced with a 4% concentration of SLES-2, an exceptionally mild sulphate that will gently lift away dirt and debris from hair and skin while still supporting your skin’s all-important moisture barrier. Perfect for those wanting a quick, easy and effective wash routine at home or away.

Want a strip-backed {conditioner} that’s full of conditioning, softening and detangling ingredients but free from filler ingredients? Let us introduce you to The Ordinary’s {Behentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner}. The perfect follow-on product from the brand’s Body & Hair Cleanser, the star ingredient here — as the name may suggest — is behentrimonium chloride which helps to condition natural or colour-treated hair while helping to detangle strands too. What’s not to love?!

If your TikTok ‘For You’ page is currently a stream of videos talking about the benefits of hair serums and hair syrups then you’ll want to try this next hero product. Introducing The Ordinary’s {Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density}. Brimming with a combination of potent natural extracts, peptide complexes and caffeine powder, it’s designed to support hair health so that it looks thicker, denser, fuller and healthier. Ultra-lightweight, it can effectively penetrate your scalp and work deep within hair follicles without weighing down hair. Ideally, use it at bedtime, apply it to a clean, dry scalp before massaging in thoroughly and leaving it on while you sleep.
