Lip Treatments -Deciem - ESHO - Sculpt

I ordered the Esho Line within 8 hours after its release. I really liked the packaging and the whole idea. Yet- i was a bit scared of Sculpt since it contains a hell lot of irritants.
I used it several times now, but only on the top lip. It has a runny texture and tasted a bit minty.
At first, it stung alot!! Be warned. I felt the urge to whipe it off.
But than i saw a swollen slightly more red lip. I liked the effekt. A couple days later, i did not feel any stinging at all anymore. It seems like my lips got used to the torture.
I just enjoy a plumping effekt that lasts for a few hours. I really like this little devilish tube! Also the guava taste and smell is not overwhelming.
(I am very disappinted with Drench, cause the taste is terribly sweet and it actualy contains glucose and fructose which you do not want to carry close to yours teeth!!! As far as i have seen it, my sculpt version does not contain these ingredients.)

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

foto

For reference, I have very dry, acne-prone and eczema-prone skin. I use this product on my really bad pimples, the ones that are painful and large and lurk beneath the skin for ages before they finally decide to come to a head. This product doesn't make under-the-skin pimples disappear immediately: rather it brings them up into a head, and then makes the raised pimples go away much faster than they would on their own. Already-raised pimples are nixed very quickly.

I do not use this on small-scale acne because it dries my skin out to the point of making the skin surrounding the pimple very dry and flaky. When I have a particularly bad breakout, I do not use foundation (1) because I am trying to treat the acne, but more importantly (2) because the flaky patches look dreadful with base product over them. This product is the most effective one I've tried, so I'm happy to put up with flakiness if it means that my pimples go away faster.

The product is clear with no smell, and I do not experience any stinging when I apply it. I only need a tiny bit on each pimple, so it will last a long time.

Overall I'm very happy with this product. Its side effects aren't the best, but it works.

I have very dry, acne-prone and eczema-prone skin, but it is generally not sensitive. It can usually handle strong fragrance and irritating ingredients. But my skin did NOT like this product at all. The first few times I used it my skin was left feeling very irritated and dry, but after not using it for two weeks and then applying it one night I woke up to a chemical burn on my face! I'm not sure why it did this, but after leaving it again for two weeks and then applying a tiny amount on my jawline, I had the same reaction. So I now know that I cannot use this product at all.

I would recommend patch testing this before you slather it over your face, and keeping an eye on your skin's reaction to it, as my skin's reaction to it got worse the more I used it.

Unfortunately as my skin reacted so badly to it, I cannot comment on its efficacy.

Not as moisturizing as Laura Mercer primer but Achieve the motive of smoothening out the skin and lines


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

this is without a doubt a new HG for me! ive not had the best time with my skin the past few years so have been experimenting with different products from Missha, Cosrx and Laneige to name but a few. I bought this on a whim a few months ago and i am so glad I did! 3 drops are more than enough to cover my whole face and you do feel a warming sensation- but the next day you wake up with noticeably better skin! I absolutely love it and will stock up to make sure I dont run out :)

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

This is actually the most effective under eye treatment i have used.

I have 2 children under 2, and am studying & working full time. My sleeps are generally quite short or broken up and it shows! I popped a bit of this around my eye before I jumped into bed. When I woke up (short broken sleep from feeding my 6 month old) my eyes looked like I had had a full night sleep. Using it regularly, my under eye area is a lot brighter, and the fine lines which were magnified by puffy darkness are much less noticable.

NOTE: this product doesn't work on shadows or extra fat deposits and they don't claim to ( topical treatments generally can't fix this, it's hereditary or needs a change in diet/more water) I still have my inner eye shadows, they're a permanent fixture , but the exaggerated darkness from bags and puffiness (Lack of Sleep, and daily influences) have disaopeared. If the issues you're having aren't influences by these sorts of things this will not do much for you !

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

The ordinary can work wonders ! My skin had gotten used to my previous care and started breaking out again, a new pimple or three every morning, with congestion bumps up my cheeks. This is an overnight product for me(can really damage your skin in the sun, always use an spf moisturiser or just sunscreen)I use an ASAP cleanser before, and dot a few drops over my face, then pat in with a dry makeup removal pad.

If you arent used to strong products mix it with another product until your skin adjusts! Once It has dried (between 10-20 seconds) I layer on my night cream.

The first week of use I applied daily before bed, and my skin started purging after night 1.

After 3 nights there was a really visible reduction in congestion, still a few breakouts but nothing I wasn't used to.

By the 7th day, my usually large breakouts had become tiny little spots, and less aggressively red, which was fabulous. I switched to every other day at this stage.

It's been about 4 weeks since I purchased and i get the occasional breakout, but my skin has improved greatly, no more bumpy textures or 1000 blackheads. I can pretty confidently leave the house without covering up spots.

I can't stress enough it's not a lifesaver by itself (for most people), you need the right routine, but as an addition it has cleared up my trouble spots and given me back a bit of glow, and smoother, cleaner skin. For the price, it's really worth having a go.

Be forewarned: it smells sort of like rotten celery, goes away quite quickly but if you're sensitive to smells it might be too much !

Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

I was very dissapointed with this,but since it was so cheap didnt think twice when buying it. Im a shade nc25 in mac for reference and summer shade nc 30 and higher. I bought this in shade Y 2.0 and epected it to match me perfectly. It doesnt really but i make it work with powders and etc. When applied it looks grayish and that just pisses me off. Im yellow toned, expected it to be something else,and then after sometime it oxidized it lookes Orange. The darker tone i bought i cant even use. I bought the y2.01 and omg its like im from another planet. That could be used for contouring almost i swear. Once applied the foundation doesnt set,i set it with powder. Will still use it,since it was that cheap but will not repurchase.

I consider this a miracle product. I had to find an alternative to salicylic acid when I got pregnant. I hopped around to a few products before landing on this. My concerns are acne and wrinkles (early 30’s yay!). I was so skeptical the first night I used it and noticed the oily looking residue left behind. I was sure I would wake up with clogged pores. However, when I woke up the next morning I could not believe it-the smoothest, healthiest looking skin I think I’ve ever had. I now use it every night and have experienced no irritation, only super clear skin. And the price is unbelievable! Truly an HG that I will continue to purchase.

Primer/ Corrector -Deciem - The Ordinary High Spreadability Fluid Primer

This did nothing for me. To be fair, I haven't had much luck with any primer, really, and this one was no different. The texture feels smooth like most silicone products but I found that my foundation wouldn't stick properly to the skin when using this. My skin doesn't tend to love silicone so I'm honestly not sure what I was expecting, haha. Like many others have pointed out the packaging is awful, the products clumped up and became not usable after only a few uses. If they changed it the product might work better. For the price though I don't consider it a huge loss, I bought it mostly to try out anyway.

I really like this serum. I purchased 4 oils/serums from The Ordinary and this is my favourite by far. I use this at night underneath my moisturizer and it noticeably hydrates my skin, improves absorption and I am less oily than usual when I wake up in the morning. It is tacky upon application but dries down very quick. You only need a few drops to cover your face, and it's under $10 for a great product in sturdy packaging. I use this about 4-5 nights of the week - I do notice that if I go a few weeks using it everyday it can clog my pores a bit, so I space it out more and it works better for me.

I have combination skin and my HG moisturizer is Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel. I mix a drop of this oil with it every morning when I moisturize my face! It helps it spread more easily, helps my skin feel glowy, and doesn't break me out. Definitely a staple.

I was looking for a dupe of Drunk Elephant's Babyfacial so I gave this a try. Unfortunately, this was a no go for me. It didn't do much for my skin except make it slightly softer. I didn't feel any tingling either when I first put it on. When I use the Babyfacial, I feel tingling right away that goes away soon after and my face is super smooth and radiant afterwards. I'll stick with Drunk Elephant even with it's high price tag.

I was surprised how similar this foundation is to Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation. I have extremely dry skin, so both do initially feel quite drying as they settle. This foundation did feel fine though, getting a little dry toward the end of the day (happens with every foundation for me) I'd say it felt better than double wear. It's still not perfect for my skin type but none are so this was a pleasant surprise that it is only £5 and fared better than Estee Lauders which is way more expensive! I find the packaging really cute, I like the simplicity and although plastic can feel a little cheap, it makes it easier for traveling. And I love a pump! I apply all foundations with a damp real techniques sponge as it's best with my skin, the coverage with this is probably light-medium, but buildable. Overall, I'm impressed, especially for the price.
