Fans of The Ordinary and skincare enthusiasts rejoice, because affordable yet highly effective clinical skincare products are coming to town.
For the first time ever, The Ordinary will be available on shelves in Malaysia, thanks to the brand’s launch at Sephora on 9 June 2022, both in-stores and online!
What is The Ordinary?
If you’re new to the brand, The Ordinary is a revolutionary label that brings powerful, honest skincare formulations to the table, attached to price tags that are easy on your wallet.
You’d recognise The Ordinary products by their minimalist, apothecary-style bottles, and formula names that put key ingredients in the spotlight, whether it’s hyaluronic acid, retinol, or yes, niacinamide.
The commitment to focus on tried-and-true hero ingredients is precisely what lets The Ordinary keep giving us excellent skincare products at not-so-ordinary prices.
Although you can buy The Ordinary’s frills-free skincare line from other online retailers, the Sephora launch lets you shop a wide range of these excellent products and at low or no shipping costs. Psst, you’ll even have access to an exclusive skincare set that can’t be found anywhere else.
To help you kickstart your worth-every-penny skincare shopping spree, we share the bestselling products from The Ordinary that you just have to get!
The Ordinary’s bestselling products
The Bright Skincare Set
The Bright Skincare Set is the exclusive skincare set that we’re talking about that’s only available at Sephora! So, what better way to celebrate The Ordinary’s launch at Sephora than by bringing home these products that work together to give you brighter skin?
The Bright Skincare Set includes the Squalane Cleanser, Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG, Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution, and Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution. This translates to, a gentle cleanser, puff-reducing eye serum, brightening vitamin C formula, and exfoliating toning solution. Your skin will look firmer and more radiant than ever with these essentials in your skincare stash.
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
A hero product for those who have oily skin, The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% works to regulate oil production, clear congested pores – even reduce the appearance of blemishes that are the result of acne. Since it’s always a challenge to find oily-skin products that don’t strip the skin of its moisture, it’s no wonder that Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is one of the brand’s most popular skincare formulations.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5
Typically, hyaluronic acid works to only temporarily plump the skin by pulling moisture to the skin’s surface. The Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from The Ordinary, however, contains hyaluronic acid of three molecular weights – low, medium, and high – that penetrate beyond the surface of the skin.
Thus, paired with vitamin B5, which holds moisture in the skin, the formula blesses your skin with hydration that you can feel!

The Ordinary “Buffet”
For a formula that fights the effects of ageing on multiple fronts, go for The Ordinary “Buffet”. It is a multi-technology peptide serum, containing Matrixyl 3000 for firming, hyaluronic acid for plumping, and 11 amino acids for healthier skin.
Translation? Your tired, dull complexion will be transformed into skin that’s youthful and radiant!
The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA
If hyperpigmentation is on your list of skin concerns, then the Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA is a formula that you need in your bathroom cabinet. A water-based serum, The Ordinary’s Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA works to reduce the look of dark spots and even out skin tone.
The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%
If you’re depending only on loofahs and other physical exfoliants to clear your skin, then it’s time to acquaint yourself with the chemical ones – starting with The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%.
Direct acids can be challenging to incorporate into your skincare regimen, especially since alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) can cause skin irritation like redness or flaking, even though they do a wonderful job at peeling away the surface, for brighter, smoother skin.
That’s why, for those who are new to having AHAs in their skincare, it’s good to start with The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%, which has a lower concentration of lactic acid than the brand’s other product, Lactic Acid 10%+ HA 2%. This will help you ease into the world of AHA skincare!
Ideal for sensitive skin, Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% uses (as its name obviously suggests) lactic acid, an AHA that helps to mildly exfoliate the skin. The bottle also contains purified Tasmanian pepperberry that helps to soothe the skin, further reducing signs of inflammation or sensitivity that can come with chemical exfoliation.
The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser
This gentle daily cleanser is part of the Sephora-exclusive Bright Skincare Set. Even so, it’s worth putting the spotlight on Squalane Cleanser, as it’s a fan-favourite product for washing away stubborn makeup whilst keeping the skin feeling soft and moisturised! That’s because squalane in the cleanser acts as a lubricant so that no soap has to go into the cleanser, and your skin is left supple even after a thorough cleanse.
The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
We all need toner in our life, and The Ordinary’s Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution is an excellent toner that’s at a great price too.
Infused with ginseng to brighten and aloe vera to soothe, it doesn’t just prep your skin to receive the other skincare products that follow, the toner itself also makes your complexion more radiant after each use.
