I am on my second tube of this. I use it in the morning and layer with other products on top. While I don't really get stinging and I do find it quite moisturizing I don't think I have really had a noticeable improvement in my skin with it. I would expect radiance, perhaps a small reduction in fine lines. I guess the real test would be to stop using it and see if my skin looks worse.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem - The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%

This is best paired with the Niacinamide 10% from The Ordinary. On its own, it doesn't really give that much outstanding result. But when paired together spots fade faster, skin tone becomes even, and better texture. Like others said, this leaves tacky feeling. Too much and it will ball. It's a stable formulation. No irritation even when used twice a day. With only 12% not sure how much is being absorbed into the skin converting to ascorbic acid. Also not a fan of the dropper bottle.

It's a good starting point for anyone who wants to try Vitamin C serum without the irritation or splurging too much. If you're someone who's used to better formulation/ higher concentration/ more effective versions of ascorbic acid then this may not be for you. It's very gentle and will not produce immediate results or give you the "WOW" factor. It does take time to see any results. In my case, I had to mix it with the Niacinamide to see results. It's important to remember "YMMV".

Repurchase? 50-50. It's not bad. Just maybe want to try something of higher concentration.

Treatments (Face) -Deciem - Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster

This made my skin red and flakiy in areas. It shouldn't surprize me. Try though I might, every product from this company mase my skin either red, dry, flaky, over sensitized or, most often all three. I tried 5 products and had the same reaction.

Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Serum Foundation

HG foundation for me.

It has the consistency of water but has an impressive amount of coverage given how light it is. The result is semi-matte and very natural. It lasts a long while with minimal powdering. I would surely buy again and again!

Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

I have such a love hate relationship with this foundation. I'm currently on the quest for the right foundation for me, because my skin in a nutshell is:
- Dry
- Very fair with cooler undertones
- Susceptible to rosacea

I got the colour 1.0 NS and it's a perfect match for me and so beautiful. The price is right too. Upon first application, at the end of the day on top of a bit of concealer, this looked so ugly and dry. After some experimentation, I discovered that this is best worn without primer on moisturised skin. This foundation never really sets, but does have good buildable coverage. I prefer my coverage to be light-medium, and you can achieve it with one pump of this foundation, but full coverage can be attained without cakiness, so that's an A+ right there. But now the formula; it never really sets, and will slip off quickly if you do not set this with powder. Be light handed with powder as if you apply too much, it will coagulate because the foundation stays wet, so a C- there. After setting with powder, a setting spray helps melt this into the skin, and it looks natural but really pretty. I live in Australia so it's really hard to get a hold of cheap drugstore foundations. This is definitely the cheapest one I've ever found (at $12 AUD a bottle) and I think it does a good job for the price. The price is definitely right on this one. Though you do have to go to some extra steps to get a good result, it ultimately is a great option for people on tight budgets and gets the job done well and you can rely on it if you need a good go-to foundation.
