Treatments (Face) -Deciem -Hylamide Sensitive Fix Booster

foto

I decided to wait until I finished my bottle before writing a review. Overall, I'm neutral on this. It does moisturise my sensitive skin without irritation, but it doesn't make a noticeable difference to my redness or sensitivity. It's just like a standard humectant serum. I probably won't re-purchase.

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

foto

As a girl with some serious issues with skin congestion and breakouts, The Ordinary cold-pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil is a godsend for me. I generally abstain from oils and even most serums because they are just too heavy on my skin and cause me to immediately break out. This is very frustrating for me since I also have dry skin that can get very dehydrated without that extra boost of moisturization. I've found that this is the best oil to use on my skin to improve hydration and reduce pigmentation. I use it at night as my last step before I go to bed, or during the day if I'm at home with the heat on all day as that can really wreak havoc on my skin. I will be totally honest, this oil doesn't feel light to me at all, although rose hip is generally understood to be a lighter oil molecularly. It feels rather greasy when you first apply it and has a distinct fish oil scent. This doesn't bother me personally, but some may be averse since it doesn't have that elegant feel and scent. When I wake up the next morning though, I always notice that my skin feels more hydrated, bouncy and glowy that the previous day. I also have never experienced a breakout from this oil, which is a huge bonus for me. Overall I do recommend this oil for those with dehydrated yet acne-prone skin. It is of course beneficial as well for dark spots, sun damage and/or hyperpigmentation, however be known that it will take time for this type of oil to work for that type of skin issue. For myself, I do have a lot of scarring on my face due to prior acne, and while this oil doesn't really seem to significantly diminish this type of scar, it does help for more recent acne.

Love everything about this product. I've been using it for 4 months in my morning routine under mineral sunblock. My acne didn't flare up, and my skin feels clean, healthy and hydrated. I love the smell but my husband doesn't so I guess not for everyone. I plan on using this for a long time, absolute favoutite.

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

This is a very high quality, low-priced face oil that is comparable to some of the more high end oils that I usually purchase. My favourite go to face oil is my Josie Maran Argan oil, so this is the basis of my review. This has a very nice rose scent and sinks in quite quickly into my skin, so it layers quick well under makeup. It’s not as thick as the Josie Maran, but I would definitely consider purchasing this in the summer. For the winter months, this is just not emollient enough for my parched skin. Right now, I need to pull out everything in my cabinet to keep my skin hydrated at night.

I’ve been using HA serum for years. An esthetician recommended it for my skin and scar during cancer treatment and it was very hard to find! I used Skinceuticals and liked it but not the price. Since then I’ve tried MUAC, SubQ, PC and they all seem ok with less variation among them than other products like C serum. When I recovered from my illness, I used HA mostly after at-home peels and when my very sensitive combo skin is parched. I like the texture, the ease of application and hygienic dropper and the lack of side effects- no breakouts or irritation. What I cannot affirm is how effective this (or any other HA) is. It feels nice, but the effect is subtle.

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

foto

I like this product quite a lot, especially considering how inexpensive it is. It makes my skin *very* soft and I can definitly tell that my skin is exfoliated. And that soft feeling lasts for a couple of days. Also, my foundation applies so beautifully the days after I use this peeling.
The one problem I have with this is that it is very intense. Granted, I do expect some tingling with such a product and my skin is definitely not sensitive. However, with this product my skin literally burns the first minute after I apply it. It's almost unbearable. After the first minute though it gets better: then it tingles and doesn't burn. I don't think I'm allergic to it as I don't have any symptoms after using this product. It's just the first minute after applying it that is *very* uncomfortable..

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

on 1/6/2018 10:44:00 AM

The Ordinary's Niacinamide and Zinc Serum is an affordable gel-like liquid that contains a proven blemish fighter in the ingredient niacinamide and an unproven zinc. The research is definitely limited in terms of zinc's benefits to skin and blemish fighting powers. I love that this is fragrance free and affordable. I've been using this morning and night but for anyone that hasn't used niacinamide before definitely start out slow because it can cause a little bit of a sting until your skin gets used to it. I did notice a bit of a purging period after I began using it but after that I think this really helped my skin prevent breakouts. This does dry pretty tacky so you might want to follow with another serum or moisturizer. My more detailed review is here:

Masks -Deciem -NIOD Flavanone Mud

on 1/6/2018 2:36:00 AM

This is a mud mask but its nothing special. Despite the science reading nicely, the best thing about this is that its quite fine so only a small amount is needed, does a decent job drawing out impurities. I have quite resilient skin and tolerate acids, retinol, etc very well however I found this painful to use and far too harsh. It did subside slightly however no beauty product that does not produce amazeball results, should be painful. I cannot see any long lasting benefits and why stinging in needed. As such, I do not recommend this. Aesop Primrose Mask is still the best which i always go back to. Its not a pleasant experience to use this, its neither comforting nor soothing, so after half the jar, it went in the trash.

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

on 1/5/2018 5:54:00 PM

I just finished a bottle, and have another one on the way. Since I’m using the Vit C Suspension at night, I figured I should have a daytime antioxidant since I’m out in the sun all the time. This has Resveratrol and Ferulic Acid, so this product, combined with the Vitamin C, replaces my Skinceuticals CE Ferulic at a mere fraction of the cost. It smells a lot better too! If I put it right at my nostrils I can smell a faint smoky scent, but it’s not noticeable otherwise. I only use two drops a day, and it never oxidized in the bottle. It’s mixed with squalane, so it’s a nice light moisturizer. I usually have to put something else on top and then sunscreen. It seems to do a good job of protecting my skin, which I can only judge by the fact that I don’t have any new or worse sunspots since I started using it.

Another good product at a great price! I use this at night, usually on nights when I’ m not using an acid. It absorbs and moisturizes well and gives me a nice glow. I don’t notice an odor unless I put it right up to my nose and inhale, but it is very similar to a light sesame oil (not the toasted kind).

I didn't see a big difference in my foundation's ability to stay on. However, this is perfect for mixing with the Photography Fluid to make it more spreadable.

that's my second bottle of this. I've been using it for almost 1.5 years. I usually put it in the evenings on the areas that have spots or all over the face, the next day the redness disappears and the spots heal so much faster.
absorbs quickly, no smell, I put a serum (or other treatments like retinoid, lactic acid or other), a moisturizer and some oil sometimes over this. amazing stuff that really works for me and a great price.

I have been using this for about two months now and I absolutely love it! I have dehydrated, clog-prone skin with an uneven skintone which I treat with retin-a since 1 1/2 years (i LOVE retin-a I am 35 years old and I have less fine lines than I had when I was 27 because of the retin-a). Since I do sometimes still get redness and peeling from the actives I use, I was looking for something to strengthen my skin and my derm recommended niacinamide to me. I started using olay moisturizers with spf in the mornings and I noticed that my skin did heal a lot quicker and was a lot more even toned. I wanted to up my dose of niacinamide so I decided to buy Paulas Choice Niacinamide Booster which I didn't like at all. it dried out my skin, even when mixed together with my olay moisturizer. I have waited a long time to finally try the ordinary`s niacinamide since I was scared that too much niacinamide just isn't for my skin. I was wrong. I LOVE this little affordable serum. it really evens out my skin so much, it kind of makes it look almost airbrushed. I use it on bare skin in the mornings under my moisturizer. I do wait for about 5 minutes before I apply my moisturizer, this way it won´t ball up at all! I also apply it under the ordinary`s squalane at night when I don't use my retin-a and I wake up to creamy, even-toned skin. I also feel that it helps with collagen since I also apply it underneath my eyes and I can't see any lines at all! I will definitely repurchase, I really enjoy this one! no clogging from this either! OH AND my skin is dehydrated but it still gets oily during the day. the oiliness is so much better with this product, it looks nice and glowy, not shiny anymore! I recommend to try to anyone with my skintype and/or age!

Update: I have been to my old work place yesterday and went to their restroom where they have a mirror which has HORRIBLE lighting, I HATED looking in there since my uneven skin texture would almost throw shadows lol (I once looked at my butt in it and i was traumatized for weeks and signed myself up in 2 fitness studios.. so... off topic but girls and guys, lighting matters SOO much when looking at yourself in the mirror so don't be too hard on yourself you probably look 100 x better in real life :) ) ANYWAYS when I washed my hands I did a double take! My face looked so so so much better than what it used to in this darn mirror! 70 percent more even textured and I dare to say 85 percent more even colored and I was only wearing a little concealer and powder and I used to wear a lot of foundation! please try this product, it is so inexpensive and if it works, it works WONDERS!

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

I LOVE the whole Ordinary line! I use this in the AM along with 2 other of their serums,
(Buffet and Alpha Arbutin, 2 drops each put on in succession after each is absorbed) and all of a sudden I am smoother and my skin looks a bit tighter. As soon as it dries I add their Natural Moisturrizing Factors-HA and a bit of tinted BB cream and I'm good for the day. I can't believe I can finally leave the house without real makeup! As soon as Sephora started carrying this I bought a box load and have been experimenting with different combos for day and night. I think some of the negative reviews here are either using too much product or not letting it dry before adding additional steps on top of it. Or perhaps expecting a bit more than it's meant to deliver. Now to be fair, I am old as dirt and my expectations to look 40, or even 60 again are ethereal dreams. But this stuff does a great job and I will continue to repurchase as long as it's out there.

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

I like this product in general, it's a good primer for makeup, though I do have a few issues with it.

It's an easy to apply, no fuss, basic silicone primer. It's no miracle worker when it comes to brightening or evening out skin tones, it doesn't do much for oily skin or pores, but then again it's not supposed to. It's definitely great for makeup - it smoothes over dry spots, feels light on the skin, my foundation goes on smoothly, stops it from bleeding into lines or clumping, it helps with the blending and longevity.

My one and only pretty big problem with this is the packaging. It should be in a tube packaging like the High Adherence Primer and not a dropper bottle. Not only is the dropper useless (I use it to scoop the product out like a spoon), every time I open the bottle, it exposes the product inside and causes it dry out a bit at a time. By the end of it's life, I find there's dried silicone bits around the top of the bottle that's essentially wasted product. The dropper/spoon that I use to get the product out also doesn't reach the bottom edges of the bottle, so that's wasted as well.

To me, if you've got pretty average good skin with no obvious problems and just need help with makeup, then this is perfect. I, on the other hand, have acne and need a primer with stronger mattifying properties than this. This is the kind of primer I would not hesitate to get if my usual one was sold out, since I know it's good and reliable and it's so cheap. I have repurchased this before and definitely wouldn't mind buying it again, however the High Adherence primer is also great and in a better packaging, so if you had to choose one, I would recommend that instead.
