Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%

This was one of the first products I purchased from DECIEM, recommended by friends.

The Ordinary classified this as a powerfull antioxidant, best combined to Vitamin C. The regime recommended by DECIEM was to use it in only once in my AM routine with the following steps
1. cleanse
2. use molecules (such as matrixyl or niacinamide)
3. Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%
4. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%
5. NIOD Survival 30 (sunscreen)

I don't know how powerfull this antioxidant is, but including it in the above routine was indeed beneficiary to the look & feel of my skin. It's about two weeks now and I feel like my skin is plumped.

The product itself is like a lightweigth oil and I feel it a bit warm when I apply it, but by no means irritant. It's actually a nice warmth. Usually it takes about 5 min to completely sink and I do wait that much before applying the next product, otherwise it feels very oily.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -Hylamide SubQ Anti-Age

This is a great product for anyone at any age. It hydrates, brightens and helps prevent and repair signs of aging. As I am now 26, this is very important to me. I apply a few drops in the evening and it sinks right in. I honestly have noticed a difference in my skin. I have very acne prone skin and this has not caused any breakouts. It's $38 so not crazy expensive, but you don't need much so it should last a long time. I purchased mine from well.ca. I will repurchase!

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder

on 5/24/2018 8:28:00 AM

I think this is a product worth buying as there really is no excuse for not trying it out in my opinion. The price is unrivalled and you get a lot (a LOT) of product in the jar. The jar is sealed and the packaging contains a small spatula. I usually mix a small amount of this powder with either my sunscreen or moisturizer. I feel like it helps to brighten my skin a little and it's also hydrating although be careful not to use too much of the powder or it will make your face really sticky. I will repurchase but I feel like the jar is going to last me for AGES. As I said, deifnitely worth trying!

Treatments (Eye) -Deciem -Niod Fractionated Eye Concentrate

This is the only eye treatment that I have ever tried that delivered visible results (and I tried some high end brands too). I had terribly dry and saggy skin around my eyes . This has helped to lift the skin around my eyes and diminish some fine lines. I always use a moisturizing eye cream afterwards though as I feel it isn't that hydrating on its own. I will repurchase.

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

on 5/24/2018 8:16:00 AM

foto

This is the first oil I have ever tried on my face! My forehead and my T-zone in general gets disgustingly oily so I was really afraid of how my skin would react to this. I've been using it for a month or so and it hasn't broken me out. I started using it mainly for the reason that my cheeks and chin get really dry and dehydrated and I hoped that this oil would make them more moisturized. It isn't as hydrating as I thought it would be. I have recently also heard that using oils regularly on your face might actually make it more dry in the end, so I try to use it in moderation.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion

I'm probably not using this regularly enough to see some visible results regarding it's anti-aging benefits (I know I'm probably young for this but I do have one stubborn wrinkle....that I'd love to make less visible). The price is great, I feel like it does help clear up some pimples and doesn't break me out. On the downside, it's slightly drying. I will probably repurchase.


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

One of my favorite exfoliators! It makes my skin smooth, clear and I feel like it temporarily helps with diminishing some fine lines. I heard a few youtubers say this smells like poo but I haven't experienced any funky smell. I use it overnight and moisturize the next day. I stick to using it 1x per week as to not burn my face. I will repurchase!

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

I started using this for anti-aging purposes. It does make my skin a little bit brighter and I'd say it's kinda hydrating too, although it leaves a sticky residue on your face. Definitely don't try to layer other products on this, it piles up very badly. Overall a good product, I will repurchase:)

I'm not sure if I see any results. What I'm sure about - don't try to layer other products on this. I did and it piled up pretty badly.

Masks -Deciem -NIOD Myrrh Clay

on 5/24/2018 7:43:00 AM

I'd say this is a good mask overall. It doesn't deliver any dramatic results in my opinion but it makes your skin brighter, a tiny bit firmer and it's cleansing too. I enjoy putting it on. It is more on the expensive side and the packaging could be better (if you keep using it you will have to put your finger deeper and deeper in the bottle to get some product). I will probably repurchase..

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

One of my favorite masks ever. It definitely delivers! Just make sure to not put in wet/damp skin or it will burn. Also I wouldn't use it more than 1-2x per week (but that depends on your skin condition). It makes your skin bright and really smooth, plus I still can't believe how cheap this actually is. I will gladly repurchase :)

Foundations -Deciem -The Ordinary Serum Foundation

on 5/23/2018 11:45:00 AM

So, when I first got this foundation, I really loved it. I tried it on right away, the shade was perfect, finish was suuuper natural, it evened out my redness really well, it just looked like my skin but a lot better. I even worked out in it and it wore off really naturally.
Now, it looks good right after i put it on but then when I get home after say, 3 hrs or more, it always looks cakey and separated. Sometimes even quicker.

I havent changed my skincare routine or anything else really, so I'm thinking maybe its the weather? It's gotten a lot hotter since I first got it, so maybe it doesnt react well to sweat or drinnes? I'm not sure, but I dont really like how it is rn. If I find out the reason or a solution I'll update. For now, 3 stars :(


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

on 5/23/2018 2:54:00 AM

I have super oily face all over the face, especially on my nose and jaw. I also have acne-prone skin, I always have pimple on my jawline and lately, on hairline. I came across The Ordinary for the first time when I was browsing skincare online shop in my country. At that time I actually wanted to buy La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (+) SPF, but because of the budget and curiosity, I bought this Niacinamide 10%+Zinc 1% first. I heard many amazing reviews how this product, especially when combined with either Salicylic Acid 2% nor Alpha Arbutin +HA, did wonder to acne and oily skin.
The Ordinary and its parent company, Deciem, are rather unheard brands here.
At first I was lost because unlike regular brands, The Ordinary doesn't really mention its product function on its name. They just stated the active ingredients and I have to dive each product page to get the information. According to some reviews, it's actually one of their characteristics and fortes, they doesn't sell many promises but just state how those ingredients are supposed to help my skin. Lately I tried some of Korean skincare but I just don't get the hype, especially the promise of "one product for all your skin problem" so this The Ordinary trait hooked me up.
Back to Niacinamide, I use it twice, on night I apply it after cleansing my face and before The Body Shop Tea Tree Night Mask. I've used it this way for about three weeks and I don't have any problem yet. I also apply it on morning before moisturizer because I hope it would help reducing oil. Well, honestly it really does a great job at reducing oil because about six hours later, if I touched my face (unintentionally), it doesn't feel slick and disgustingly oily. Just slightly oily. Well, my nose is still oily but I'm pretty satisfied. The problem is, this product cause balling. I didn't notice it when I applied moisturizer (I used Revlon Soothing Lotion + a drop of The Body Shop Tea Tree oil to help my acne before, now I use La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo), but when I applied primer (I used Revlon Perfecting Primer 001), there are some balling. It made my foundation streaky! Fortunately, after I change into dabbing instead of rubbing, the balling has lessened. Well, now I use Effaclar Duo as daily moisturizer, it seems a bit too drying when I combined it with Niacinamide so I might use it on night time only.
I haven't notice any change on my skin, but I never use any serum before and my acne scars are kind of old scars so I think they really need time to heal. But I'm glad it doesn't irritate my skin, or causing breakouts. Some people argued that this Niacinamide helps with preventing or treating acne, but since the official website itself doesn't recommend it for acne treatment, I don't complain. Although I must admit, it looks like I have less pimple now.
I will definitely repurchase and in fact, I have recommended it to my friend already!

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

on 5/23/2018 1:48:00 AM

For reference I have combo normal to dry skin, with an oily nose. I suffer from papulopustular rosacea on both cheeks that I self manage.

This is a lightweight silicone based lotion that applies and absorbs quickly. I use this with the Hylamide Sensitive Skin serum and have found that with religious use every day (no skipping!) unless I directly do things that cause flare ups (be outside in full sun for extended periods) my skin will not have any inflamed pustules. I still have slight texture problems (bumps) but they never get out of control. In the winter my skin has been looking the best it has ever looked without taking drugs.
On a side note, if I just use the Azelaic acid without the serum, I find the texture of my skin feels a bit rougher - the bumps feel a bit more pronounced but still not fully inflamed or showing signs of fluid. If I don't use the acid, and the serum only the skin texture feel smoother and not not as rough, but bumps sometimes show inflammation. I think it's definitely the combination of the two that work for me.

I've officially switched from Darphin's Intral Redness Serum to this product, and I don't think I'll be switching back.
