Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

I like this, yes its a little gritty when you first apply it, but put your moisturiser over the top of it and the grittiness goes away and its fine. I've been using this every 4th night for the past 6 months and am really happy with how my skin looks. I introduced a few products from The Ordinary into my skincare routine, I'm all about the affordable skincare products and this stuff suits the bill.

I am in my late 40s, have always had a very simple routine, my skin is getting drier as I approach menopause, sun damage is my biggest concern. I have discolouration because i wasn't always consistent when I was younger with wearing hats and sunscreen and I regret that.

This time last year when i introduced the Ordinary products into my skincare routine my concerns were sundamage, wrinkles under my eyes, pigmentation and texture on my cheekbones. Within 3 months i noticed differences and in the last 6 months I have been really happy with how healthy my skin looks. The texture is gone, there are still age spots but they aren't as pronounced, my skin looks radiant and healthy. I get compliments on how healthy my skin is. I'm wearing sheerer and sheerer foundations because of this confidence in my skin.

This product can feel a little uncomfortable for the first few moments, but it doesn't burn my skin and once i apply a moisturiser and rosehip oil over the top it feels fine. It looks great, no dry patches, doesn't look dry, skin is 'normal' type all over now with no texture issues. This is a very affordable product and as such i just can't bring myself to pay high prices for stuff like Sunday Riley or Drunk Elephant or Clinique or countless other very expensive vitamin c products, i'll keep using this cheap and cheerful thank you very much. Its cheap. It works. Its easy to use. What else can i ask?

Foundations -Deciem -The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

I am so very surprised by how much I loved this foundation. I am 48 with combo skin that leans towards oily. I am also cursed with large pores.
First let me say that I used UD optical illusion primer. I love this so much. It helps minimize the pores for me.
I got the 1.2N shade. It's a good match. I have been using LM Minerals in Tender Rose or KA sensual skin in sx5 or Bare Minerals fairly light. I used my beauty blender.
The coverage is better than I thought it would be. It feels lightweight yet covered everything great. But didn't look or feel caked. It lasted very well too a full 10 hours of hot summer with the heat index around 115 today. Still looking great when I washed off.
The price of this is so much less than my others that I can see myself using and switching to it.
Overall I really loved this. Well worth a try for the price. Great coverage.

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

This product works for me! I tried this when another product broke me out and this "works for me" as keeping my skin in good shape. The price is great, the packaging is great. Good smell to it, nothing special and that's what i like. I use it under sunscreen and also with serums and they work great together. No breakouts or something. I'm not sure if it would work in the winter because my skin is usually super dry and more sentisive then, time will tell.

Treatments (Eye) -Deciem -The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

This did nothing for me. It’s not particularly moisturizing and I didnt find it to relieve puffiness.

This was my first eye area product and although it did reduce puffiness, the crepey texture it left me with and the slight discoloration around my eyes and the sometimes burning made it a product I won't be buying again.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Borage Seed Oil

Recommended to me when I asked for product recs directly from the Deciem website and I love it! It helped with the redness of my acne scars and it made my skin more hydrated, healthy. I'd try the rosehip seed oil after I run out but if I don't find any good ones, I'd buy this again!

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane

I have both the 2% and 5% but I can say that I like the 5% more as it feels more effective. My face looks brighter the next morning and feels softer and clearer. It’s hydrating and works great under any other product

Made my skin dry, irritated, itchy and red. I rarely experience any sort of skin breakout but this product left red itchy bumps all over my cheeks.

I really like this product, but here’s the thing. When I first tried it, the burning was downright painful. I tossed it in the back of the linen closet-the land of the misfit beauty product. After a couple months, I tried it again. I was super careful and mixed it with Clinique dramatically different moisturizer( also rescued from the land of misfit beauty products). Voila, no burning or redness. I do wait before putting on sunscreen as it is greasy. The packaging is good enough, no oxidation-impressive given its banishment. My face’s texture is improved-and I like its antioxidant properties. Bottom line, with a couple of tweaks, it is effective and inexpensive.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Buffet

I was so excited to buy this. I really thought I would love it. I had acne for 15 years and the last two I've been doing so well with my skincare that I barely even get a spot during that time of the month. The first day I tried this I got some odd small red rough patches on random areas of my face. Theres a small one below my lip that just won't go away. On top of that, I've suddenly started getting whiteheads...its the only thing that has changed. Ive read so much about it making you feel instantly awesome but my face looks really congested and blotchy, which I'm really not used to. So disappointment but then I've not tried anything like this before and maybe its just me.

This cream is a bit better than the serum because it’s not sticky, but I wouldn’t buy it again. Nothing special.

Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5 is supposed to hydrate. It is sticky on the skin. I don’t really see or feel a difference after a couple of bottles. I won’t buy this again. The only plus is that it’s cheap.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum

foto

This product is pure magic! I have already repurchased, I love it so much. A staple in my skincare. Really brightens the skin, makes it radiant, more plump, more even. And the results are visible literally overnight!
I'm totally a skincare junkie, and someone who always reads ingredients lists. I'm regularly using Retin-A, LAA, and Alpha Lipoic acid is definitely one of those products that really visibly improve the skin.
I use it every other night, the nights when I don't use Retin-A, and very happy with the results. It is pretty strong, but I haven't gotten any irritation from it. However, I find the best way to use it is adding just one drop into the oil of your choice or squalane, it still delivers excellent result, but there is definitely zero stinging or irritation this way.
Must have for me!

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5

As a child, a cat scratched me above my lip and left a vertical scar. About 3-4 years ago, after my first whole 30, I lost about 10-12 lb and my face changed. Suddenly the cat scar combined with years of RBF gave me upper lip wrinkles. After using this serum for a week, those lines aren't as prominent! I am using 2-3 drops to cover my entire face, concentrating on my upper lip area and under my eyes- basically where the smile lines/crows feet develop. This is a great moisturizer but if you use the entire dropper full, it will be sticky and will pill. I have seen better results with this (and the buffet, vit c in silicone) than I did with retinol. I'm very happy I purchased this.

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

on 7/14/2018 10:36:00 AM

It's just brilliant. One of the few products that truly proves you don't need extravagant ingredients (or an extravagant pricetag) to actually do something. It works perfectly to brighten, clear, even firm my face. The thing is, you need to be consistent with it. I use it every Sunday and Wednesday night, and after three sessions I finally started to see noticeable improvement in my acne scars, some areas of congestion, and the overall texture of my skin.

Then I stockpiled, because I realised I can't be without this. Ever!
