Where to Buy The Ordinary in The Philippines?

Last updated:

The Ordinary is a beauty brand by a company called Deciem which recently received an investment from Estée Lauder. And I’m not surprised a HUGE company like that decided to invest in this indie brand because The Ordinary first caught my attention when I’ve read a headline about the insane 25,000 wait-list in their foundation (and I was eventually one of them), but what really makes them Millennial’s favorite is their vast array of skincare products and affordable price tag. So if you can’t beat them, join them. Am I right? With that much popularity and demand, it’s not also a surprise that Filipinas want to try them too. But where to buy The Ordinary in Philippines?

Anyone can buy The Ordinary products on their official website here, but their shipping fee is quite expensive. Below is the list where you could buy them faster locally, and internationally without shipping fees.

LOCAL ONLINE STORES

1. Look At Me – This is a new store that opened recently. They both have an online store and a physical store located in SM Aura in Taguig City. Besides The Ordinary, they also have a vast of beauty brands from Western to Asian names such as MAC, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Fenty Beauty, AHC, Innisfree, Krave Beauty, and more. They even have BTS’ perfume L’Atelier des Subtils.

2. Get Unready With Me – This shop is run by @yourporeguy, a member of the Asian Beauty Community Philippines, and someone whose reviews I follow and trust. Besides The Ordinary, they have Krave Beauty, Klairs, CosRx, Nature Republic, iUnik, Nacific, Some By Mi, and more.

3. DAYUHAN – This is my go-to Shopee seller. Almost all of the Instagram and Tiktok-fave beauty brands that are hard to find in the Philippines like Rare Beauty, Kosas, Nécessaire, Patrick Ta, REM Beauty, Gisou, Harry style’s Pleasing, EM Cosmetics, Dior, and more are available here.

4. SOLARE – This is where I bought my first Kosas products. Besides that and Rare Beauty, also sell brands like Sol De Janeiro, Dior, REM Beauty, and more.

5. SKINCARE PH – Another one of those Shopee resellers that have a lot of Instagram and Tiktok-fave brands like Rare Beauty, CereVe, Glossier, Summer Fridays, Versed, and even Telfar bags!

6. Cult Beauty PH – I discovered this reseller on Instagram, but you can find them in Shopee. They do not only sell a handful of The Ordinary products, but they also sell other brands by Deciem like Noid and Hylamide. Besides those, they also have Glossier and Milk Makeup products. Actually, this is where I bought my very first Glossier Cloud Paint, Tarte Tape Shape Concealer, and Milk Makeup Matcha Toner.

7. Beauty MNL – For me, this is the best online beauty shop in the Philippines. They have a vast selection of beauty products from Asian, Local, to Western products like The Ordinary. Plus, they give free shipping on orders above Php1500 but oftentimes they have promos and freebies or a Piso shipping fee nationwide!

INSTAGRAM RESELLER

The Globe Trotters PH – They’re the only Instagram reseller that I recommend. I have personally been their customer since 2018, and they’re also highly recommended by the local Asian Beauty Community. They sell Asian beauty products from Japan to South Korea but they also sell some Western-based brands like Glow Recipe, Krave Beauty, The Inkey List, and of course, The Ordinary. Some items are on-hand but mostly, they’re for pre-orders. Waiting time depends.

ONLINE STORES THAT SHIP TO THE PHILIPPINES

These online shops are based abroad but they offer free shipping to the Philippines.

NOTE JUNE 12, 2020: The pandemic has caused delays in international shipping. Customer service and couriers are working on skeleton staff. So if you buy from these shops expect it may take more or less a month for you to receive them.

1. Olive Young – This is a famous beauty store in South Korea. Almost every street there has Olive Young like it’s a convenience store. It’s a must-visit if you travel there. But if you can’t for now, you can order popular K-beauty products from their online global store. Don’t forget to use my coupon code “ALYPICKS12” to get a discount. Besides K-Beauty they also sell western brands like The Ordinary and more.

2. Cult Beauty – This is based in the UK and they offer free shipping to the Philippines on orders above £40 (they also have a FedEx option but the shipping fee is £30). But if it is your first order, you’ll get free shipping even if your orders are below £40. And don’t be intimidated by the prices, because they listed it all with an added UK Tax, but if you live outside of the United Kingdom or Europe, the added tax will be deducted before you checkout. And you can also use Shopback here to get rebates. They have beauty brands that are not available in the Philippines like the highly coveted The Ordinary, Charlotte Tilbury, The Inkey List, Huda, Milk Makeup, and other more cult-fave beauty brands.

3. Beautylish – This one is based in the United States and they offer free shipping to the Philippines on orders on or above $100. Besides The Ordinary, they also sell brands like Charlotte Tilbury, Jeffree Star, Kevyn Aucoin, Jouer Cosmetics, Noid, and more.

4. Beauty Bay – Started as a fragrance retailer, but now you can purchase hard-to-find beauty products in this shop. Brands in their list are The Ordinary, Olaplex, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and more K-beauty brands like Missha, Tony Moly, Too Cool For School, and such. Beauty Bay offers $5 shipping to the Philippines on orders $30 and above. But you can opt for trackable express shipping which costs higher.

So far these are the only shops I know that you could trust where to buy The Ordinary in the Philippines. But I’m always looking for new shops locally. I’ll update this post when I find more. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them below.
