It has been some time since The Ordinary launched a new serum, so this is pretty exciting! Online now is the brand new The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% serum which is a super potent antioxidant formula extracted from pine bark and it can revive oxidised vitamin C to make it active again.  Interesting!! Here are the details.

We all need a good quality antioxidant in our routines to protect skin from environmental aggressors and premature skin ageing; and we can always trust The Ordinary to deliver effective formulas at extremely affordable price points.

The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% Features

  • Natural plant extract derived from the pine bark of French maritime pine trees
  • Contains procyanidins, bioflavonoids and organic acids
  • Works to rejuvenate the skin
  • Enhances skin hydration & elasticity
  • Maintains healthy levels of collagen & Hyaluronic Acid in the skin
  • Protects skin’s proteins from free radical damage & degradation
  • Nourishes the skin from the inside out
  • Captures free radicals before they damage skin
  • Recycles oxidized Vitamin C to restore its activity

This is such an exciting product, particularly as it has the ability to revive dead Vitamin C and make it effective again. I am not sure I have really read anything about that before, and considering that oxidization is the biggest negative when it comes to Vitamin C products, I homed straight in on that! I need to find out more about this area! It is SO interesting!

The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% is available HERE now for £8.60 for 15ml.

I love this brand’s anti-oxidant serums and if you’re not sure how to fit them into your routine I’d suggest mixing a drop or two into  your serums or moisturisers to boost their antioxdant protection power. It will turn an average cream into a product that will help defend your skin from the environment.
