The Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% Suspension Review

Hi 👋
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Hope you are doing great 👍

In today’s post I am reviewing The Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% Suspension. 
Azelaic acid is an amazing ingredient when it comes to hyperpigmentation. It is naturally produced by the yeast present on the skin and can also be derived from barley, wheat and rye.  

Azelaic acid is a dicarboxylic acid which increases the cell turnover rate which results in mild exfoliation of the skin giving rise to peeling of the upper dead skin layer and renewing the skin.  

This process helps in removing the dark spots present on the epidermis of the skin. It has also shown effective results in the patients of Melasma. 

What I really love about azelaic acid is that it can be combined with retinoids. When included together it helps in improving the appearance and texture of the skin. Unlike retinoids azelaic acid is safe during pregnancy and lactation. 
The ordinary azelaic acid 10% suspension is a potent formulation which helps in giving the desired results within a matter of a few weeks. 

Price- Rs. 950

Quantity- 30 ml 

pH- 4-5 

Ingredients- 

Aqua (Water), Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Azelaic Acid, Dimethicone/Bis-Isobutyl PPG-20 Crosspolymer, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polysilicone-11, Isohexadecane, Tocopherol, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Isoceteth-20, Polysorbate 60, Triethanolamine, Ethoxydiglycol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin

Packaging- 

It comes in an opaque tube with a flip top. 


Texture and consistency- 

The cream is quite thick in consistency. As it contains dimethicone it spreads very easily on the skin.  



My experience with the product- 

I do love almost all the products manufactured by The Ordinary. Their clean ingredient list and effective formulations have always worked great for me. Their azelaic acid suspension is no less. I apply the cream on a cleansed face after my serms and actives only on the affected areas where I experience hyperpigmentation. It does not give any greasy or sticky feeling to the skin. 

I usually combine this with my retinol serum as well and it works great for me. I’ve seen significant improvement in my skin tone and texture after using this product. Due to the increased cell turnover rate it accelerates the process of reducing the hyperpigmentation on the skin. Some people might experience mild tingling while applying it for the first time. 

Just remember to do a patch test before including any new ingredient in your skincare. Silicones act as occlusives and help in reducing transepidermal water loss from the skin but if you are allergic to it you can skip this one and try any other silicone-free azelaic acid cream.

Minimalist Salicylic acid + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliat

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
