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

So I jumped on the Ordinary bandwagon and just went crazy. By far, this brand is one of the best skincare finds of the century. Most of the products worked well for me and considering the price, I really don't have any complaints. However, as always, some products work better than others.

I bought a whole bunch of oils and this is my favourite. It's lighter than the rosehip oil, absorbs much better and clarifies my skin overnight. Perfect for aging, sensitive and acne-prone skin. Regarding the smell, I feel that it smells similar to olive oil. Not the most pleasant but I can live with it.

I really wanted to like this. I'm a regular retinol user and the idea of a retinoid that's equally effective but without the purging effects is like a dream come true. However, I didn't see very dramatic results and I'm wondering if the 5% retinoid is really equivalent to 1% retinol. I also personally don't like the squalane base, it's too oily. Would prefer it in an emulsion, like the 2%

This one didn't work for me. It made me break out, so I used the rest on my hair instead. Either get a more hardworking moisturiser with other active ingredients (if you wish to save yourself one step in a many-step skincare regime) or use one of the better oils, like borage seed oil.

Love love love azelaid acid! It's very comfortable going on and leaves a smooth, matte finish like a primer for foundation. It's gentle, yet works well to reduce acne and textures on your skin. A keeper.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%

I was attracted to this due to the combi of Vit C and arbutin, but maybe I should have stuck to a high level of one ingredient instead of settling for low levels of both? I didn't find that it made much of a difference in brightening my skin (I'm used to Vit C), and I don't like the feel of the product. It's slightly warming and stinging. It's gooey and oily at the same time, and doesn't get absorbed into the skin quickly. it leaves a sticky layer that makes putting on a moisturiser on top a problem. Also, when I wipe my face the next morning, my cotton ball has an orange stain. I would recommend sticking to a higher dose Vit C serum.

I bought a bunch of oils and I was expecting to really like this one, due to all the hype. However, I found that it went on very oily and never really absorbed as well. It also left a brownish tinge and hubby said it smelt like blood, lol. If you have aging sensitive skin that's prone to acne, try borage seed oil instead. That's a keeper.

This was one of the Ordinary products that I gave away. It did make my skin slightly clearer, but gosh, the stinging was unbearable. It never let out even after a few weeks. I know it works well for some people but for me, I got way better results with the Buffet + copper without the pain, so this one is at the bottom of the list for me.

This one I loved for my eyebags. It made a noticeable difference, almost immediately. No other eye product I've used had such a great depuffing effect. However, the effects are temporary, and it doesn't reduce dark circles one bit. I'm still giving it a 5 rating cos it's marvellous for what it sets out to do, and the price is insanely unbeatable.

This one was middle-of-the-road for me. I think it did calm my skin somewhat and I noticed that I've stopped having acne. However, that could also be due to the retinol. Since I have so many skincare products, more than I can possibly use up, I think I would prefer having niacinamide as part of a different product, instead of having to use one separately (thus increasing the length of my skincare regime.)


Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5

I really like this product. It's one of the few products that checked all my boxes for anti-aging.

Amino acids are beneficial for the skin and not just for hydration, they can heal the skin and make it more youthful.

My skin actually looks healthier after using this for a week, it gave me a slight glow. The product absorbs well with slight tackiness that dissipates after a while (not as fast as I want it to be but better than others).

For the price, you can't go wrong with this.

I have used up an entire bottle of this in hopes I would see results. Unfortunately, I have not. It doesn’t harm my skin from what I can tell but it also doesn’t benefit me in any way.

I hate to ruin the party, but this hasn't done that much for my skin. It hasn't made it any worse, but it also hasn't improved anything either. I've used it for a couple of months without really seeing a change - I've used Retin-A, AHA, and BHA products in the past, so maybe my skin is so used to various acids and exfoliants that this doesn't do much. It seems to work wonderfully for other people, and it certainly hasn't done any harm, so I've given it 4 lippies.

It smells like a fire in an oil refinery, which doesn't bother me that much - but it does make it a bedtime treatment rather than one I'd wear under makeup. It also feels physically hot on your skin when you first put it on, but that goes away very quickly.


Treatments (Face) -Deciem -NOID - Modulating Glucosides

on 9/4/2018 10:19:00 AM

This product was recommended to me by a Deciem staff at their store when I inquired about a solution to redness on my facial skin. My problem is simple, many product that I put on my face makes me look horrible as it irritates my skin, makes it red and dark. My skin tone is brown and getting irritation from many product doesn't feel good.

This product goes in very well, feels good to put it on face, however, it instantly adds some color to the skin, like it makes the skin look reddish / copper toned. I applied it along with their Niacinamide solution and after 2 weeks I saw my skin appearing much darker, tanned and dull.

Good fit or not, this product is not for me.

I have now tried a few products from The Ordinary at this point and they run the gamut from amazing to meh. This is a nice solid serum. It contains peptides for plumping, firming and treating wrinkles and it is very moisturizing and absorbs rather quickly. I like to use this serum after at-home peels and retinol serums. It has a nice texture and lasted quite some time. I will repurchase but I want to try the Unwrinkle Toner by Peter Thomas Roth first.
