Skincare Review: The Ordinary daily set.

This is my first skincare review! It’s been a while since I sat down and write a proper post but it was only because I was drowning in assignments! 😦 I still have a few deadlines but I have a little more time to myself. With that being said, shall we begin? 

It’s been just over a week that I started using “The Ordinary” daily set from Deciem.  Before making this purchase, my skincare routine was non-existent and my skin was breaking out. 😦

On a random evening my friend introduced me to this online shop called Beauty Bay so I started browsing and decided to purchase this set.

Step 1: Cleanser.

The ordinary Squalene cleanser

The first thing I usually use is the Squalene Cleanser. It’s an oil-like cleanser that you apply to your face when it’s dry. You only need like the smallest amount and once you start applying it becomes an oily consistency and make sure you wash off with warm water!


Step 2: Serum.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic acid 2% serum

Step 2 is applying The Ordinary’s serum, which contains 2% Hyaluronic Acid and B5. You only need a few drops for this and to apply it evenly on your skin.


Step 3: Moisturiser

The ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors cream

The last step is applying moisturiser! I usually wait for my skin to dry up after I applied the serum and then apply this and you’re done!


It’s been just over a week since I started using these products and for me, my skin has breakouts but they are minor so the difference I’m seeing from using these products is little. It has helped clear up my skin but it’s a slow-acting process. But if you’re someone who has a lot of breakouts and you’re looking for some new products I would definitely recommend! I put links in the beginning, if you’re from the UK you can order it from BeautyBay, but currently I think it’s out of stock. I also put a link for the Deciem website above so you can try purchase it there too!

Dear readers….

Today I’m going to tell you a story about a pursuit of happiness. This story is called “Bluebird” by the writer Maurice Maeterlinck. This is a story of a brother and a sister who set out on an adventure to find a bluebird that is told would bring them happiness. In their quest they encountered many things but couldn’t find the bluebird anywhere. They decided to return home and to their surprise they found that the bluebird was at home all along. Happiness can be found closer than you think and the best kind of happiness is disguised in acts of kindness.

What about you? What is one small thing that makes you happy?

Dear readers…..

Welcome back to the Goodnite club! It was a long awaited day.

I’m afraid this post is going to be more for girls. Actually I was browsing the internet and was trying to look for some skincare products to use at night. Lately my skin has been breaking out (probably because of all the unhealthy foods I’ve been eating 🙂 ) and I don’t have any specific products that I use. What kind of products would you recommend?

That’s all I have for today, sorry for the short post! If you have anything else you would like to talk about then leave a comment below!

Dear readers of the Goodnite Club….


Welcome back. I hope you all had a good day, did you do anything special? Of course for everyone every day is looking the same but I think even if we weren’t in quarantine it would still look the same. It’s either work or school and then an evening at home. I guess there are a few people who can say their lives are extraordinary but it’s always how you make it.

You can either live in the present and do something different everyday, or complete the same routine day in and day out. For the sake of money we throw away a lot. I want to be one of those people, who can say their life is extraordinary, I just hope I get there soon. There are people who love routine and love to live an ordinary life and that’s okay because for them, that’s extraordinary.

What about you? Would you say your life is extraordinary?

Dear readers of the GoodNite club…..


Everyone, how was your day? Did you do anything special today?

Because of the virus, every day looks the same for me. I wake up and do the same thing that I did yesterday. Isn’t that the same for everyone recently?

Recently I don’t like to wake up in the mornings. A new day, another day closer to my deadlines. Another day to stress about university assignments and realise that I’m only one more day closer to my deadline. It’s frustrating and boring at the same time.

This is why I like the night time a lot. It’s free time for me to do whatever I want! I end up watching a TV show with my friend first and then I come here and then maybe watch something else after? But it’s fun and stress-free and so I like it!

And then I dread the morning that comes after. It’s the same endless cycle.

Everyone, what do you do at home these days to keep yourself entertained?


Leave a comment below and I wish you all a good night!

Tonight’s TMI….

GoodNite Club


Dear readers….

Welcome back to the GoodNite club! I don’t think I explained properly why I chose the word “Good night”. I watched in a drama somewhere that if you can eat well and sleep well, then you have a good life.  But even though those people can’t sleep don’t they deserve a good night too? Maybe they like to write or draw or read a book, just something in the peace and quiet of the night?

So that’s the kind of concept I thought of when I came up with the name…

So my dear readers….tonight’s TMI is … I looked out of my window today. You’re probably going to think I’m stupid and yes I’ve always had a window to look out at but I’ve never had the time. To just stop and look. It’s a nice thing to do when you’re stuck in your home all the time.

” I really want to go outside but I can’t so I’ll watch it from here.”

How is quarantine going for everyone?


That’s all I have for tonight, if there’s anything you want to talk about (it can be totally anonymous you don’t have to give any names) then write in the comment section below. I’ll be waiting…

It’s a night to start something new…

“Good Night” is a saying used to say to someone who is about to sleep. But what about those who can’t sleep? Wouldn’t they have a good night too?
GoodNite Club is now open so come on in and let’s talk and enjoy this night with all it’s stars and wonders…

GoodNite Club


Dear readers…

Welcome to the opening of GoodNite Club! For the longest time I couldn’t write any more blog posts because I felt like I had nothing else to say.  Actually these days I can’t sleep well, I end up staring at the ceiling either worrying about something in the present or worrying about tomorrow. And so I started to keep a diary.

But that didn’t work out well. I wanted to write but I wanted to interact with others in the same position as me. And so I decided to use my blog and take it into a new direction!

I want to interact with my readers more and so every night I will come here to the GoodNite Club and post something and let’s have a talk in the comment section. If there’s something worrying you or even if you wish someone to listen to you, I will lend you my ear.

So when you can’t sleep one night, let’s meet here and dream of the stars…


Is there anything you would like to talk about? Write a comment and let’s talk!
