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

on 10/20/2018 11:38:00 AM

Although I'm a bit of a skincare junkie, and I'm new to Vitamin C. Prior to this, I was experimenting more with acids, vitamin B, and retinols, until I finally made my way to Vitamin C. This was my first Vitamin C serum and I absolutely love it.

I use this in the morning exclusively as I use retinol at night. I actually LOVE putting this stuff on. It has the viscosity of corn syrup (not surprising since it is a derivative of corn sugar apparently), it feels like a slightly oily but non sticky version of corn syrup, and it smells like sugar. When I put it on it smells like I've walked into a candy store, and the product spreads/smooths on beautifully. I have no issues using it under my moisturizer and makeup. I don't find it particularly thick/oily/uncomfortable.

As a newbie to Vitamin C, this seemed like a good concentration to start with (not too low, not too high) and the alpha arbutin is a bonus since I'm trying to reduce some sun spots. I did not experience any irritation when using this product, but I did get flaking. Maybe its in combination with the retinol, but my hyperpigmentation spots caused by pimples started flaking off within days. I never experienced anything so immediate, and so targeted. Any problem areas (congestion/dry patches), started to flake off, and clear up. I feel like retinol has been very helpful at decongesting my skin, and the Vitamin C swoops in to clean up the aftermath. I've been using this everyday for a full month now, and my skin is definitely clearer, brighter and smoother.

This comes in the standard dropper bottle format from the Ordinary, which is great for portion control, and the dark bottle prevents the product from going bad. Price wise, it is unbeatable as expected. I would 100% recommend this product to anyone new to Vitamin C and is looking for a brightening treatment. I will continue to use, and repurchase, unless I decide to upgrade to the stronger varieties (I would eventually like to try the L-Ascorbic powder offered by The Ordinary).

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid Serum


I hated this serum with a passion at first fro the first two months because of the burning rubber smell and no matter how much I apply, I didn’t seem to get any visible results. One day I realized this can be diluted with other face oils so I mixed three drops of this and three drops of rosehip seed oil. This has almost eliminated the burning rubber smell and I’ve had visible results the next day. I don’t know what it is about the rosehip seed oil with this serum but this just seems to work!

Skincare - Face -Deciem -The Ordinary Matrixyl 10% + HA

on 10/17/2018 1:54:00 PM


I am a complete Ordinary devotee, but I did my homework. Having used the HA, VitC, and the Resveratrol for some time, I decided to branch out. I started using Matrixyl regularly in May. I have skin that used to be oily-acne, but being 50+ takes away the excess oil (but not the rest). All summer I had no acne, no breakouts, and my skin looked clear and plump all the time. Come September when everyone is back in town, people keep telling me my skin looks amazing and what did I do? Matrixyl. Oh and a few masks every week but really, the Matrixyl used consistently is key. Don't expect overnight miracles, they don't happen in this world. But for $11+ this will improve the quality of your skin. and don't forget your neck and decolletage!

Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

on 10/17/2018 1:05:00 PM


This is one of the very best moisturizers I've ever used - and trust me, I've tried more than a few! No fancy packaging, no perfume, no wild claims to turn back time - just a fantastic moisturiser - you don't need to use a lot so it lasts for ages - which isn't heavy or greasy, so an ideal base for make up, and it really does make your skin look amazing! I've been a total convert and it's now my go-to daily moisturiser. Buy it while you can!!!!

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

on 10/16/2018 9:51:00 AM


I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now and I could see a difference almost immediately. I do not have sensitive skin so I haven't noticed any irritation, although there's a slight stinging/cooling sensation when you first apply, but nothing painful at all. I had some initial purge and now my skin is clearer and more balanced oil wise than it's been in years, acne scars are fading and my skin tone seems overall more even. All of those effects are great but the biggest difference for me is in makeup longevity -- I have a very oily T-Zone which can usually break down the best foundations by the afternoon but using this in the morning my foundation lasts all day! I'm even able to use a dewy setting spray for a more natural look for the first time ever. Price is amazing will definitely repurchase.
