The Ordinary vs Good Molecules

There are a lot of people saying that Good Molecules is a dupe of The Ordinary mainly on their products like niacinamide, vitamin c powder, hyaluraunic acid and sqauline oil. Good molecules sell cheaper products. What do you guys think with it being a dupe? Do you prefer The Ordinary products or Good Molecules? Or do you use both brands depending on which product it is?

I would say the niacinamide is a better dupe. The one from the ordinary aggravates a lot of peoples skin and the one from good molecules is wayyy gentler. Same with the viramin c powder, I’d recommend good molecules over the ordinary. I prefer good molecules but I do still have a few ordinary products. But I’d go with good molecules if I had to pick between them.

Thanks for sharing. Maybe I'll try out their niacinamide after I finish TO because GM's niacinamide is kinda cheaper too. :) Can I please know what you mix the Vitamin C powder with and what's the ratio you use? I've recently bought the GM Vitamin C Booster Powder last week and I'm having some difficulties trying to have the perfect mix. :( I mixed 3 drops of The Ordinary's Hyaluraunic acid with it and it feels really sticky and icky.

Oh hey, thanks for the recommendation! I'll definitely check it out. :) I've googled it for a bit and saw some promising reviews. Do you have any product from GM that you loved and worked on your skin?

I mixed my vitamin c booster with moisturizer cause it does get sticky with serums. I’d do one full pump of moisturizer and then half of the little spoon of vitamin c, sometimes a whole. you don’t need a lot of the powder I’ve learned lol

I have been using a lot of The Ordinary products but haven't tried out Good Molecules 😊 I heard good things about it though! I didn't know the two brands were similar in product formulation and pricing 😊
