Here’s my one month

Here’s my one month update using Fenty Skin on my acne textured skin. One product broke me out a few days after my first video so I returned it! I’m sharing my honest opinion on Fenty Skin after using it for over 30 days. Is it really worth the splurge? Also, I’ll be mentioning the new skincare that IS working for me.

Have you tried using neutrogena and or clearasil?

Carlos De Leon

I bought the mini set ! Had an issue with the moisturizer it made me really oily. I stopped using it. I love the Toner tho ♥️

Melissa Victor

I’m using Urbanskin Rx right now...have you tried it?


I broke out as well. I had been using the whole set, including the night cream, for a few weeks and I started getting these super red and painful whiteheads that looked like spider bites. I also got a few closed comedones on my cheeks and it clogged my pores. I wasn’t sure what the culprit was so I stopped using all of the products and went back to my old skincare routine and my skin cleared up immediately. I’ve heard numerous people saying the SPF moisturizer was the cause of their breakouts, but coincidentally mine didn’t start until after I started using the night cream. I reintroduced the fat water toner because I love what it does to my skin and I’ll be bringing back the cleanser as well. I think I’m going to steer clear of the night cream from now on because something in it definitely doesn’t agree with my skin.

You still have pretty skin. It's glowing! :)

Wolf Cien

This was so helpful, thank you.

OKAY FENTY SKINNNNN !! we see you - wow, intro and entire video you are GLOWING!!! you reminded me I need to repurchase more of the ordinary products haha rosehip oil and hyaluronic acid are my jams.

It's Ya Girl C

oh wow, the break out was very obvious no denying that.. geez. Good you found the culprit. I'm not up on the fenty line of skin care, this was very informative for me. But yes! your skin is looking great so far!!

Avocado on Everything

That's a bummer! But I'm glad you were able to return it and get a refund, that's a good policy ? I remember another youtuber mentioned that that line broke her out too, but she didn't specify which product. Need to check that Ordinary product, I loove their stuff ?

Hey there!


Hey there!

I thought it’s time I reveal how relatable I am to you as my audience. Getting amazing skin isn’t a once off task that lasts a lifetime. If it means me getting bashed for such content - so be it. My whole intention is to reveal the cold truth, that some Youtubers find difficult to tell.

I hope you enjoyed watching the video.

It takes a while for our skin to get used to the products...

The Ordinary Broke Me Out: How My Skin Looks Like Now and How I Healed It

987 views | 4 Feb. 2021

I finally have an update

I finally have an update on my skin after The Ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum broke me out pretty badly. After using that product (only 3-4x) I developed painful cystic acne along my chin and cheeks. It was the worst! Especially because my skin was doing SO well prior to trying the serum out. The good news is that I was finally able to heal my skin again and in this video I'm going to share the steps I took to bounce back from this terrible reaction. I hope you find it helpful!

Dawn Finley

Hi Kat, been a few?

doña bruja

i cannot thank you enough for your wonderful help!!! i drank my first cup of dandelion tea last night, and i'm excited for this journey!! and yes, less is more. btw, the only product i use from the ordinary is the rose hip seed oil, it's helped me so, so much! muchas gracias kat ?


These tips are bombbb ✨✨✨✨

Ken Pryor

Wow ! Lady at Sephora referred me to that ! And I broke out all over my cheeks !!!

Jigga Jigga

Oh my gosh I had the same reaction with this product & their Azelaic acid.

What really helped me was taking vitamin d supplement, Simple Micellar water boost gel, Paulas choice resist toner and serum.

Literally overnight everything calmed down

Em K

Hi Kat. What’s your thoughts on milk thistle supplements for skin? I took it for about 2 months but didn’t really notice a difference in my skin.

Gerald Smith

Fantastic going vegan


i was so sad when i found out their niacinimide didn't work for me as well :( it was so sad to face the fact that despite it working so well for everyone else, and wanting it to work so badly for myself, it broke me out. after 2 uses my skin just got really red, itchy, and bumpy in places that i never get those.
i've found that diluting it however actually helps. i'll put on alpha arbutin first and then niacinimide afterwards really helps actually.


Great video! I also had an allergic reaction to The Ordinary's Niacinamide and doing some research, I found out that apparently they use less buffering agents to reduce the ingredient list (whether that is for cost reasons or simply because they claim to be a minimaistic brand, I don't know). That in combination with the high percentage of niacinamide, which should be used at 2-5%, not at 10%, creates a breakout cocktail. I also break out from their Hyaluronic Acid, which is supposed to be super gentle, but I guess it's due to the buffering thing I mentioned before, that's why I gave up their products completely. I'd wager this could also explain why you tolerate Insta Natural's serum and not TO's.

I’m find out out hormonal cystic acne won’t be treated by typical over the counter we gotta treat it from within I’m on my journey things are frustrating thanks for your video you’re very beautiful regardless of the blemishes

I’m finding that washing my face then using cera ve hyaluronic acid and vitamin c serum has been helping haven’t seen any cystic acne lately at allll ouuuuweeeee


Yeah it broke me out also. I think ordinary products don’t really work for me.

Elissa Rose

I also got acne from their azelaic acid and niacinamide serum !

Amy Eliseo

I was tempted to buy the Ordinary's products for wrinkles since I'm in my late 30s. It's time lol. Good thing I didn't. I've suffered for over 25 years with cystic acne. I've finally got rid of it thanks to the holistic route (meds made it worse). I do not want it to come back because of some product.

Kat Sanchez

Wow this has been a process that requires so much patience! Happy I'm finally sharing an update ✨I hope you enjoy ✨

Share what worked for you ??

Wonderland Gems

I broke out by it too?

Mignon Alverson

The 10% niacinamide is a very high dose. That may be why you had a reaction. Niacinamide in skincare products is sufficient. No need for extra serums.
