Masks -Deciem -The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution


I am reviewing this against my experience with other chemical exfoliants and the like on the market. Compared to them this is...ok. Mediocre. Sufficient. Capable. But not staggering. I would say this is meager at best, but it is a beautiful product to start with. If you're curious about chemical exfoliation or want to introduce a new bike into it, you cannot get better than this. It is very, very gentle and not irritating. It lightly exfoliates and tingles just slightly and it is so pretty on the face, most peeps aren't. The value is great and the quality is superb. Would I buy this again? No, not because it isn't effective but because I have tried a much higher caliber successfully (non medical though). Do I recommend...yes, to beginners, those looking for light, uber gentle exfoliation, those looking to wean off headed exfoliants, and those with dry sensitive skins. If you have acne you could do much stronger and specific.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%


Recommended to me by a friend as I was desperate to a routine in place and get my skin under control. I really like this product! I noticed an improvement in my dark marks within a few days and less breakouts during the time I was using this product. Long-term use saw more benefits and my skin became clearer and my pores less clogged. Comes in standard Deciem packaging with a dropper applicator. The product is a bit thick and will pile if too much is used. Also finding the sweet spot of adding this to your routine makes a big difference in how this will layer with your other products. I use this right after my toner but before my Moisturiser and it seems to layer well that way. I would repurchase this as I saw results with consistent use and the pricing and availability of this makes sense to my budget.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%


This product was my first experience with The Ordinary brand and I’m not disappointed. It was gifted to me but it’s sold cheaply and readily available so availability for repurchase won’t be a problem. I’ve been using this product twice a week for roughly 3 months now and the hyperpigmentation and acne marks on my skin have greatly improved. I can’t fully credit the improvement to this product alone as I’ve been using other things in conjunction, however, on nights I use it my skin is brighter the next morning. I enjoy using this as a part of my routine. It comes in the standard Deciem packaging with a dropper applicator. The product is very watery/runny and smells like tears but absorbs quickly and layers fine with other products. It does tingle a bit but after consistent use I haven’t experienced this. The 30ml bottle lasts a long time too. Overall, I’d repurchase but at a higher strength.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%

I wish I had read the reviews before buying a few bottles. I used it on my entire face before bed, and woke up with a very sore and red face. I have raised tiny bumps on my cheeks concentrated around my nose. I tolerate salicylic acid fine and witch hazel fine, so it must be something else in the product. Awful stuff.

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

on 12/13/2018 2:24:00 AM


I wanted to try a few of their skincare products alongside The Ordinary Coverage Foundation. The fact that Ordinary's Natural Moisturizing Factors contains many beneficial ingredients looked intriguing! But tonight, I went through my nightly routine, and this fell short immediately -- I placed ONLY on the lower eye orbit bone area, and immediately, it burned! My guess is that the carbomer and urea (which are cheap ways to fix the pH of product) we are what made my skin angry.

STRIKE OUT! This is going to go back for a refund.
