If you are new to The Ordinary you may be wondering, where do I begin? The perfect Cleanse, Treat and Protect Routine.

They are known for their line of clinical formulations that provide well studied active ingredients, in honestly priced & scientifically formulated products. The Ordinary offers a well rounded collection of treatments to suit a wide variety of skin concerns and personal preferences to build one’s perfect routine.

That is where The Ordinary Balance Set comes in. The Ordinary is further committed to providing education and guidance on how to best pick products for your unique skin, and has created this kit to serve as an introduction routine to the line.

The Ordinary Balance set is a four step skincare routine that aims to cleanse, target, and bring balance to the skin. The products featured in the balance set are good for all skin types and will be particularly beneficial to those seeking to reduce the appearance of blemishes, redness, and skin congestion.

Targets concerns: Uneven Tone, Dullness, and Oiliness.

Who is The Balance Set Good For? The Ordinary Balance Set provides a well-rounded routine that will work for all skin types. Those with oily, congestion prone skin will find this routine to be particularly beneficial, however everyone will be able to benefit from this set, and it serves as a great starting point for all that are new to The Ordinary and wishing to explore.


In The Balance Set you will find:

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser: A balm to oil texture that is good for all skin types, is gentle on the skin, removes all makeup and sunscreen, and thoroughly cleanses without stripping the skin. Dispense product into hands. Rub together to warm the product, allowing it to melt into an oil. Massage well onto dry face and rinse with warm water.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%: A high strength serum to balance oily skin, minimize the appearance of congestion, and brightening the skin tone for a healthy complexion. Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.

The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA: This daily moisturizer contains ingredients that aim to mimic the skin’s own Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF) which are the endogenous elements that help to keep the skin well-hydrated. This formulation offers non-greasy hydration and incorporates compounds that mimic the hydration supporting effects of the skin's own NMF and lipid components.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque: For a weekly exfoliating treatment, The Balance Set also includes The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque, which is infused with charcoal and clays aimed to enhance the appearance of smoothness and clarity, while leaving the skin feeling refreshed. Salicylic Acid also targets the exfoliation of the outermost layer of oily and congested skin, with the purpose of revealing more radiant skin beneath.  

Do not use on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off.


Can I incorporate additional products from The Ordinary into this regimen?

The Ordinary offers many products that can be used together in a regimen. We recommend the following when building a regimen: 

  • Use no more than 3 serums per regimen.
  • All products should be applied from thinnest to thickest texture.
  • When using 2 or more products of the same format, apply based on the priority of the concern (main concern = first applied).

How much do I save by buying this set compared to buying the products individually?

This set will save you $2.60CAD

Why were these products chosen to go together?

Both excess sebum and dehydration are caused by an imbalance of the skin's lipid and water content. This may lead to a lackluster tone, excess shine and visible congestion. This set includes for products working synergistically to gently cleanser the skin, target lackluster toner and textural irregularities, balance visible aspects of sebum activity, and provide immediate hydration. Together, they can help restore a balanced appearance to the skin.
