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

Omg! was super excited about this product...my skin is pretty dry, a little sensitive, and really needed a moisture boost and some plumping. I read reviews and all of them praised this product and its cheap so i was like cool! Why not? I used it and when i wokeup a rash appeared on my chin and i had rash-like (but not a full out rash) on my cheeks and my forehead was inflamed. My whole face was RED and burning. I dont want to risk using it again and "give it a chance" so ill be returning it soon. my face could not handle it for some reason. Im only giving two lippies because it did moisturize my face and get rid of some patches, but it gave me what felt like a burn in return!

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

on 7/26/2017 1:24:00 AM

Sad face from the Ordinary 2% Retinoid. It has caused a bit of havoc on my face (havoc for me as I don't have skin issues) Had hoped to use this for fine lines. Surprised as it sounded like this would be a super star based on all the other reviews. Three Big raised pimples appeared after using it. I have never had any skin issues with pimples or acne. One or two pimples around that time of month. So was shocked at what happened. The pimples are large and deep. Oddly they do not hurt. I stopped using it to see if the Retinoid was the culprit. I had used a strong AHA/BHA Mask prior to staring the Retinoid so was not sure what caused the breakout. I took an antibiotic for a few days along with a steroid and my face cleared. I used it again ONE time and wham a giant pimple appeared! It is trying to heal right now. Very upsetting. Could my skin be purging? I plan to get in to see a Dermatologist. Hope others have better results with the product. Again, sad face as I did like it a first.

Moisturizers -Deciem - The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

This moisturizer does it all. I have sensitive combination skin and I used to use only La Roche Posay Toleriane moisturizer. This works amazing for me as a day time moisturizer and layers really well with other products. At night I use it too, I just ad 2 drops of a face oil. It doesn't make my sensitive skin react, doesn't break me out, keeps my skin hydrated, moisturized and balanced. Amazing, practical packaging and great price point.

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

on 7/24/2017 2:15:00 PM

Salicylic acid does nothing to my skin. But they say that it is good against congestion, so I keep trying it. Bought this bottle from The Ordinary to test. It is easy to apply and probably would be effective on you if another salicylic acid products are. The consistency is a bit strange, since it starts lathering when you rub it in. But it is worth to try.

I didn't really notice the effect of this serum at first. I thought I just have one of these "good skin" periods. Strangely, it ended as fasts as I finished the bottle. I bought another one and the effect came back. A radiant clear skin. I love it, love the price point and the clean simple packaging. Will repurchase as long as it would work on me.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem - The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%

foto

I absolutely love this product. I'm a complete skincare junkie and it takes a lot to impress me but having used this for 4 months I can see a huge difference to the fine lines around my eyes as well as those on my forehead.
It takes a 2-3 months to really see a difference but when you do expect people to ask if you've had Botox, a number of my close friends have repeatedly asked me that! Love this product and I've already bought 2 back ups!
I use it morning and night most days right after cleansing as it's a super watery consistency and so everything else layers beautifully over it.
Absolute holy grail product and so affordable.

How strange is it that TO products are so well liked by buyers but it seem to not work for me. This is really just a basic moisturizer that is ideal to be used in the daytime, and definitely too light for night time hydration. I love that it absorbs quick to my skin, but really, its just meh. It did nothing to my skin.


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

I have uneven skin tone and some recurring acne and bumps on my cheeks (which I think is hormonal and cystic but nothing major that warrants a trip to the dermatologist). I started using the retinoid three weeks ago and I must say that my skin texture has smoothened and overall a brighter complexion. My blemishes are lighter than before and it seemed to be keeping any new spots or acne from popping up.

I can't wait to try something stronger from The Ordinary!

PS: This is my first time using a retinoid/retinol product so I started using it on alternate nights for about three days before using it nightly. I don't have any side effects or "purging" or dried out skin after usage. (I use La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide moisturizer for sensitive skin)

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

on 7/22/2017 12:43:00 PM

I was incredibly doubtful this product would work. I suffer from extremely puffy under eyes bags and moderate dark circles. This product is incredibly affordable, so I figured it was worth a try. I was shocked as HELL when it actually worked! Nothing, I repeat nothing has ever helped my under eyes. After just a few uses it reduced my puffiness a great deal. As for my dark circles it has lighted them up some but not much. IDC tho bc it makes a huge difference for my puffy under eyes. I look much more refreshed and awake when using this. This product is holy grail status for me. I use it 3-4 times a week and it wears well under makeup if I use it in the morning. There's so much product and you need so little this bottle will last a long damn time. I'll definitely repurchase when I'm out tho. For $7 give this a try if you struggle with puffy, swollen eyes and bags. I use this on my lids as well. Great product!

Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

on 7/22/2017 10:25:00 AM

foto

I wanted to like this so bad! Because it's cheap, I figured I could get it for both evenings out (when I want more coverage) and to mix it with other stuff, for my daily tinted moisturizer (I use sunscreen, foundation, and a bit of shimmer cream to illuminate).

However, it keeps sliding off my face, like if I touch it, there is going to be a finger mark. It doesn't ever set, and feels tacky on the skin unless I use a lot of setting powder. It highlights my imperfections in a really weird way, like dryness I didn't even know was there. It doesn't even play well with others, cause it doesn't matter what I mix it with, it's just going to ruin the other products.

I used it yesterday with a drop of my face shimmer, and after Sunday Riley's tinted primer, and when I came across a mirror I realized with sheer horror that it just looked like a greasy layer on top of my skin. If anything had touched my face, like my sleeve or a tissue, it would just have been wiped off. It seems to me very unlikely that the people who tested this foundation before it was released never had this problem.

I'd like to add that I exfoliate my skin really well once a week, and use acids at night, so it generally have a healthy, smooth and non-clogged skin, which constitutes a good canvas; I never came across a foundation that never sets, it's completely new to me, and I don't use that much product- I'm careful and build it up progressively.

I can't possibly recommend it to anyone. It's cheap, but it's also really, really bad. Don't bother buying.

Edit: Case in point > I dropped the tiniest bit of product on the lid of another product and didn't notice. Days after I used it, it never dried out. When I touched it to wipe it off, it was still as liquid as the first day. I think this is just not meant to set at all.

I found that this did work instantly, dark circles were less pronounced but after three days of use my under eye started peeling! I do not recommend this to anyone with dry or sensitive skin.

I do love that stuff. It certainly depuffed my undereye area, and ever so slightly has started to work on my dark circles. For me it works wonderfully under makeup when I put a bit of normal eye cream on. I hardly notice tackyness; at night I simply put any kind of moisturizer over it and I am done.

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

I have dark circles primarily at the inner corner of my eyes, but even worse are veins that are visible and seem to become more visible each year. :( I don't have problems with puffiness, but the ECGC is supposed to be a great antioxidant and caffeine also has some antioxidant activity.

PROS: You get 1 ounce of product for under $7. This will last such a long time and is such a good value that I feel like I can't NOT recommend this just because of that. If it doesn't work for you or do anything bad, well you could always use it up anyways and you'll have a ton to use. You could also use it over the entire face too. I can't tell if it's working, but my eyes look nicer sometimes... It's in the realm of placebo though (what's not is how it's done nothing big for my veins so far).

CONS: This commits the cardinal sin of eye products... it stings if I get into my eyes! This is frankly impossible for me to avoid and I don't even see how you could considering it will get on your eyelashes, but it must be applied in that area. WHY!? I've put oils around my eyes, sunscreen (which does sting but can take a long time), CeraVe PM and regular moisturizers for instance can be put on heavy, completely coating the lashes too and causes zero irritation on my eye area, but this does almost every time. This would be like a foundation causing zits, a flaw so counter-intuitive that it makes the entire thing pointless.

OTHER: This provides zero moisture to the eye area and is literally a serum so if you are buying this, you still may need to moisturize your eyes or use an eye cream.

OVERALL: You know, I would still recommend this. The value is ridiculous and it's hardly a gamble even if it doesn't work. I will use it up and hope it gets bet I am trying to be careful... it is not inner eye friendly for me.

I had perfectly smooth skin all my life. For some unknown reason, my skin became bumpy and irritated for the past few months. I used all the products that used to soothe me but none of it worked. They all seem to irritate it more.

This magical product got rid of all bumps and roughness in two days. Yes, this doesn't have the best base and it can pill. I guess that's what you get for the incredible price.

As for hyperpigmentation and brightening properties, I haven't used it long enough to judge. All in all, this is definitely a big fat rave worthy product!
