Foundations -Deciem -The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

It looks good when first applied, quite glowy and natural. It starts to disappear after a couple of hours and also looks quite shiny, which I am not a fan of since my skin is already combination oily.

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

I am on my second bottle of this. I do not get breakouts anymore (upside of aging) but I still have large pores and they certainly got smaller after I added this to my routine. You do need to apply it carefully if you layer it over other products and not use too much and pat it on instead of rubbing it but that is a very small inconvenience given the results.

Skincare - Face -Deciem -The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

on 12/10/2017 3:35:00 AM


I looked up a lot of reviews before purchasing this serum and based off those, the product seems meh when it comes to its promise in fading away hyperpigmentation. However, I still wanted to try it anyway since I’ve tried so many things to fade away past acne marks (AHAs, BHAs, niacinamide, vitamin c etc) and none of them made a huge difference. THIS HAS.

I’ve been using this alongside The Ordinary’s rosehip oil for about 4 months now and both of those combined has helped my PIH fade away so much quicker. I could already see the difference in my acne marks with the rosehip oil alone, but they faded away faster with this serum. My acne marks used to take 3-4 months to fade away just 50% of the way. But now, 1-2 weeks is enough for me to see a 50% fading of my acne marks. By a month or two, the marks are completely gone! Bonus is this hasn’t broken me out either, so it isn’t undoing any of the work it’s done by giving me more acne and therefore more acne marks. My bottle is more than halfway done and I really don’t wanna have to repurchase soon, but when that time comes I’ll be doing just that.

I know this hasn’t worked out with everybody but if you’re desperate to fade away any unwanted marks and you’re curious about this product, I think it’s worth a try. The good thing about this serum is it’s cheap so if it doesn’t work, at least you didn’t spend too much on it.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2%

on 12/9/2017 10:30:00 AM


After all the rave reviews & the promise for highly effective Retinol product, I’m quite disappointed!
Here’s why..
My skin is the kind who react extremely fast & well to effective compound.
After three months of use I haven’t notice any change in my fine line what so ever. I was about to categorize this as a dud, but decided to test it all over my skin. I did notice my overall complexion looks more youthful and glowy, I’ll say that,
However, I can achieve the same effect with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil just as good, And These fine lines are still there..
(35, smooth skin, no skin issues,some fine lines)
I adore The Ordinary for being so affordable & the use of all natural high-quality ingredients,
But, at the end of the day this product didn’t delivered.

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

on 12/9/2017 6:47:00 AM


Meh. Smells like fish, though, to the point that I contacted the company to make sure that the smell was considered normal. I was assured that the smell was because of the ‘natural cold processing’. Still, ew. I could have gotten over the smell for good results though, but, eh. Oily feeling oil on my face. Never really sank in. All in all, I trashed it.
