Hair Treatments -Deciem -The Ordinary - Multi Peptide Serum for Hair Density

on 8/18/2018 11:45:00 AM

I am always looking for hair care products that help grow hair healthier and products that promote a healthy scalp, the nice thing is that The Ordinary's Multi Peptide Serum for Hair Density fits both these criteria. What I like most about the Multi Peptide Serum for Hair Density is that it is fragrance free and does not contain denatured alcohols. This applies pretty easily onto your scalp or where you part your hair. This doesn't leave your scalp feeling greasy or looking greasy at all. I would say that this has helped me achieve a healthier scalp and roots as well. I also love that the bottle is large and that a little goes a long way. Regardless of what your goals are with using this product (hair loss, dry scalp, or just looking for stronger hair) the ingredients used in The Ordinary's Multi Peptide Serum for Hair Density will expose your scalp and hair roots to beneficial ingredients without ever looking or feeling greasy.

Foundations -Deciem -The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

The consistency is lovely, not heavy or watery. I have combination skin and it worked well, skin didn't look shiny until a few hours later and it also didn't settle in the wrinkles around my eyes. The coverage is medium but build-able. It's described as semi -matte, which I would agree, it has a slight luminescence without looking flat or shiny.
I like the bottle, its simple but effective - no top but the lock on the pump clicks easily into place
The colour match was really good for my brown complexion and the price point makes it easy to buy a foundation for winter and summer when my skin colour changes. Highly recommend

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

I used this as a spot treatment in the evenings only. First few times I used it was fine, but eventually my skin started flaring up pretty badly and I wasn’t quite sure what was causing it. So I tried either leaving it to dry before applying moisturiser/oils, or applying moisturiser/oils and then apply this as a spot treatment afterwards.

Regardless of how I applied it, I ended up with what looked like chemical burns the next morning both around the area of application and also on completely random parts of my face. If I applied it on my chin, I would also get burns on my cheeks. If I applied it on my forehead, I would get burns around my eyes.

Once I stopped using it the burns went away and I haven’t had any flare ups since.


Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

Does not quite sink into the skin the way you would want a hydrating oil to - just sits on top and slides around. Still provides a barrier for your skin overnight, but didn’t noticeably improve moisture levels, or anything else really. Didn’t break me out but is way too greasy looking to use during the day. Don’t bother with this, I recommend using the rosehip oil instead.


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

Have repurchased this several times. It’s the best value rosehip seed oil I’ve tried (Pai, Trilogy, A’kin). It does all the things that rosehip oil should - moisturise, improve skin tone, elasticity, reduce inflammation. It is also almost always out of stock in stores so it’s good to plan ahead when repurchasing.

It doesn’t sink into the skin as beautifully as Pai’s Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, or make my skin as bouncy, but it’s also less than half the price.

The only drawback is that it seems to go off and smell rancid MUCH faster than all the other rosehip oils I’ve tried, maybe they keep their prices low by buying old stock that is near expiry? I just keep it in the fridge from the moment I buy it and it is fine, otherwise it will really start to stink and feel like you’re smearing sardine oil on your face. Definitely do not bring it with you on holiday to a hot country (never making that mistake again!)
