Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

The price is good and the packaging is great. This foundation is just so-so. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. It's great for a light makeup day or quick application. It has great coverage but makes my skin look meh and flat. I don't notice any youthfulness or plumpness after applying, which I get with my other foundations. It doesn't stay on my face as long either. I don't have to use a setting powder with this foundation because it seems to dry down a bit. I appreciate that aspect because powders tend to bring out my skin texture. The colors are slightly off. There isn't a good shade for neutral tones. I found they are very yellow or pink. My perfect match is Nars Gobi (NC15) so I purchased 1.1N. It is a bit too light so I think 1.2N is better. I like how thin the formula is while still giving coverage. It doesn't accentuate my skin texture or pores. I will continue to use it, but not sure I will purchase more.

ive just started using it and been liking it so far. it doesnt irritate my skin and actually hydrates it which is surprising considering most face treatments i used in the past were very drying on my face. it's very cheap compared to most skincare products out there. will update after a week to see if it works as the claims on the packaging.

Horrible horrible horrible for Oily skin! It made me look extremely oily all the time and it rubbed off on everything, I really tried to make this foundation work. I tried primers and setting powders, I tried it with a totally clean face void of any creams but it always turned into a horrible mess; like I smeared baby oil all over my face and then threw baby powder onto it; caking by my nose and around my eyes but a greasy oily mess everywhere else eeeeeeeeeww!!

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

foto

I've been wanting to try The Ordinary products for a while now so I was thrilled to find it at my local Ricky's, and even more thrilled to purchase 3 products for under 40 bucks. When does that ever happen?

I purchased this, the high adherence primer and the Buffet. This is the stand-out winner for me (the other products were good too but this really wowed me).

I should preface with this: my skin is not sensitive and doesn't break out. I know that's been an issue for others with this product.

I've always found vitamin c (topical) to be highly effective but it's so hard to find a successful vitamin c product due to it's instability. Even high end products fall short sometimes. Before finding this I was adding the powder (cosmetic grade) to my skin by mixing it with an HA serum at the time of application, but that's a pain in the ass, REALLY gritty and while effective not nearly as much so as this.

The texture of this takes some getting used to and yes it's got some grit to it but I like that because at least I know the C is in there and still stable. Also, and this might be a bad idea but those are the only kind of ideas I have, when I apply it I use firm circular strokes and it acts as an exfoliant which I like. I also love that it's unscented.

There's a slight tinge of sting but again my skin isn't sensitive so that doesn't concern me, as it's hardly noticeable and it doesn't last long.

Most importantly, there's a marked difference in how my skin looks and feels the next morning when I use this the night before. It's very soft and smooth and still dewy to the touch, even after a full 8 hours of sleep.

If this were more costly I would probably use this less often and supplement with my diy C serum but thank God I don't have to because I'm pretty lazy and always looking for products effective enough to facilitate that laziness.

In summary, effective, no BS vitamin C treatment at an incredible price provided it agrees with your skin.

Is this a bad product? No. Would I buy it again? No, and here's why. While I think this probably does the job of what a niacinamide should do (even out skin tone, specifically) I didn't get a wow factor. I use niacinamide to heal red acne marks. I've used other products with niacinamide in them that I have liked better simply because of the formulation. I don't like this formulation. It's sticky and rather tacky, and it rolls when I put an oil over it, which I do almost every night. It also causes a bad reaction if I use it together with some serums, causing me to break out. Therefore, I will not repurchase this product even if it is good value for money. I would rather use a more expensive brand whose formulation is better. Right now I am using it on my decoltage to use up the bottle, but I find it difficult to use on my face because of the rolling.

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

Nope. No. Nah. This product is not for me. I gave it a good try. Two tries actually. The first time I used it for about 2 weeks only to have to stop due to a massive, painful breakout on my forehead. Since this was the newest introduction into my routine I stopped and waited to see if my skin would clear up. It did. For some reason I decided to give it another go for three nights a couple weeks later only to be left with irritated skin and huge pores, as well as a couple bumps on my forehead.

I really wanted to like this product. It's a great price with a high concentration of vitamin c but it just did not agree with my skin. I could have put up with the grainy texture, greasiness after application, and stinging if it had benefits but I never saw any. I gave it one lippie because it was the product that drew my attention to The Ordinary and led me to find some of their products that work amazing on my skin. Unfortunately this just isn't one of them.

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

It relatively cheap and was able to last me for about 3-4 months. After using my pores become smaller and face do not get oily as fast. It is very fluid and absorbs very quickly into the skin and do not leave my skin feeling dry nor oily. The packaging is really hygienic too since it comes with a dropper. The only bad part of the packaging is that it is unable to pick up the product when there is only a little bit left.

However, this product is rather to difficult to buy in Singapore and I have to get it online from ASOS which may not always have stocks. The shipping rate from the company is crazy expensive and not worth it.

This is an effective preparation for azelaic acid, which is the active ingredient in "Finacea."
It immediately rid my face of stubborn breakouts. The formula is nice, disappearing, and unscented.

Lip Treatments -Deciem - NIOD Lip Bio-Lipid Concentrate

this product definitely works, it takes a while, but if you dutifully follow the instructions, it will give you lasting results. Because it is a sort of "bee-stung" product for your lips... obviously stop using it if you are having reactions to it. I got mine in-store and they told me to make sure to only use the little-est of amounts to apply it ONLY to your lips, not the skin around it, as it can make it red. The little bottle was $60 CAD, so a bit pricy but it is worth it because it will give you lasting results and will last a long long time-- that said, I don't know if I would purchase it again unless I magically found and extra $60 on the ground. The liquid itself is yellow and kinda lumpy, smells kinda spear minty? and doesn't taste the best either... but I suppose you're not supposed to eat it anyway so that's pretty expected. The instructions said to apply twice a day in the am and pm for a month, and then once a day after that to maintain results, and as expected it did tingle on the lips when first applied. I didn't notice any change at first but after using it consistently (mostly) I have noticed a difference! I think the results will be different for everybody - afterall everyone is different in how they will react to products, because I didn't notice too much change in the color of my lips unfortunately, but I did notice that the overall shape is definitely more rounded than before, especially when comparing my pictures to selfies from months ago, my lips have definitely filled out nicely. Not like kylie jenner lips but like a nice subtle cushioning to what was already there. And still way more than half the bottle left to go! :)

Skincare - Face -Deciem - The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

If I could give this product 0 stars...I would. I'm no stranger to chemical exfoliation, I usually use a 7% glycolic acid peel but I recieved this product from a friend as a gift. I decided to try this but omg...the moment I put this on my face, I get red bumps EVERYWHERE!

On a side note: the packaging is simple and nice but the dropper is quite annoying to dispense since the product is so viscous.

Moisturizers -Deciem - The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

on 9/2/2017 6:41:00 PM

I was so skeptical before buying this product. Indeed, the price was too low, even if the formulation and all the ingredients were really good. Finally, after several weeks of usage, I can say: I am really satisfied by this product.
That's a truly excellent moisturizer for sensitive skin, I would recommend it for normal to dry or just combination skin. Indeed, a really oily skin or dry skin maybe would not get on well with that (even if you can try it).
It spreads as butter, but it soaks into the skin immediately. The feeling on the skin is not oily, neither tacky.
It lacks in antioxidants, but it is packed full with so many excellent cell communicating ingredients and emollient factors, so gives to the skin all that it needs.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem - The Ordinary Buffet

on 9/2/2017 1:52:00 PM

This product did not work for my skin. I try out new skin care products one item at a time so I know what is causing issues. I had issues with acne all over my chin and a couple on my cheeks that I don't normally have, even a couple cystic pimples! After noticing the new acne I kept using this for several more days to see if it was just an adjustment period. I kept getting the breakouts consistently so I quit using this. Within a week the unusual breakouts cleared up and haven't been back since. I applied this in the evening after cleansing and before my moisturizing products. This felt kind of sticky right away and was a bit difficult to spread. After a little while, it felt dry on my skin. I already have dry skin so I really dislike products that make my face feel even more thirsty. Even though I have dry skin at times, my cheeks also starting itching randomly. It wasn't anything severe, but enough that it was uncomfortable. I can't say whether the Buffet produces the results it promises since I didn't not use it long enough, only about 10 days. I am only slightly acne prone so I would not suggest this product to anyone who is acne prone or has sensitive skin.
