Recent Deciem Reviews

The Ordinary "Buffet"
2.0
Created with Sketch.

3 hours ago

I read so many positive reviews here and on Sephora that I figured it was a no brainer. The price point for the product line is amazing. The product however for me, not amazing. I used it for 2 months and it really did nothing. I also got an odd reaction. I experienced extreme drying of my lips during the time I used this product that no balms could relieve. It seemed odd, I kept it far from my lips. My guess is that it was getting into my moisturizer even though I let it dry before moisturizing and my moisturizer is safe to use in eye area and lip area. Oh well.

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

This product worked to reduce oily skin, but I didn't notice any pore reduction or change in redness - mind you, I don't have terribly red or pore-y(?) skin to begin with. The first time I used it, my skin got red and kind of warm as soon as I applied it, so I rinsed it off. Subsequent uses were fine. This product was just okay for me, but it wasn't expensive so I'm not devo about it.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%

I know next to nothing about acids and stuff, but a friend recommended this to me and it works great! I don't have sensitive skin so I went straight for the 10%. It really does remove the top layer of skin, leaving behind an almost freakishly smooth layer. I only ever use it once or maximum twice a week, usually only when my skin is a bit rough or pimply. The main reason I don't use this on a regular basis is because I'm worried about sun exposure. I already put on sunscreen every day, but I don't need another risk factor just for the sake of smoother skin - mine's just fine as it is, slightly bumpy and all. That said, $10 for this is incredible. The packaging is great, it's clear, pleasing, and the dropper works just great.
