Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

I joined the queue waiting (impatiently) for its delivery on launch - let me tell you it felt like forever! In the meantime mixed reviews began filtering out leaving me somewhat skeptical. So, I didn't try this for a while - what a mistake. This, for me, is a lovely foundation - as it's pigment, you don't get that horrid cakey look and because of that it's totally buildable. It's a different concept of foundation but it just works. A word of caution - this is VERY matte, and us more mature ladies will need to add some life (ie. light) back into our skin; hourglass works a treat. For the incredibly low price point it is worth a try. It's a brilliant, cheap everyday foundation, but I have to admit for nights out and special occasions I prefer the EL Nude foundation as it gives a lovely glow ( not greasy look). For reference I'm NW20 and bought shade 2.0 which works a treat.

Primer/ Corrector -Deciem - The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer

This is nothing special and does nothing for my skin. Does not blur pores or wrinkles or make my makeup last longer. It is just a lotion. Very basic. I was expecting a primer, not this. Not worth the order.

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

Got this product to help prevent acne, to clear up my areas where I get recurrent breakouts (chin, lip and sides of nose), to minimize pores and just improve texture and help product penetration. I now on usage 5, using this twice a week. The first two masks I felt an intense itchiness in my usual problem areas, and sure enough when I woke up I had breakouts in all those areas. Since then my breakouts have totally stopped, and in face I had no premenstrual breakouts on my chin and jaw like i usually do. My pores look smaller. There is still some hyper pigmentation from previous breakouts, I have read it takes a while for the peels to draw that out so I'm being patient. Obviously my fine lines and acne scars are still here :) The mask itself is really gentle, I have been for peels quite often in the past and my skin is quite resilient, but still I think all the soothing things they've added to this really do the job. In fact sometimes I wonder if the mask is even doing anything because I can't feel it - but I get occasional tingles here and there and I know it is. I love this product and will definitely use it for at least a year. I also use Environ products and microneedling for scarring and fine lines, and plan on adding Retinol and Vitamin C from The Ordinary soon.

Foundations -Deciem - The Ordinary Serum Foundation

I have to say I do not understand the rave reviews. Firstly - while it’s cheap, you don’t get a lot of product for your money, putting it at about the same price as high street foundations. It markets itself as very lightweight and this may be true if you have very young skin but I do not find it to be so on my skin. I am in my 30s and while I have no proper lines or wrinkles I have very fine lines across my forehead. This sits in them terribly and really makes me look old. Not good! Compared to (yes a v high end) but still lightweight foundation like a ysl cushion foundation, I’d rather pay the money instead of looking older than I am

Treatments (Face) -Deciem - The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%

I’m afraid that while there’s no denying this product is excellent value for money and provides a solution to the instability of vitamin c, I would not purchase again. The cons just out weigh the pros. I understand the science behind why it’s gritty but I find rubbing it into my face irritating, for some reason the taste always ends up in my mouth and lastly, for me a vit c product is for the mornings so retinols may be used at night. This just doesn’t work under make up particularly if you’re in a hurry. If you’re able to leave it for ages it’s not too bad but I find it balls and is gritty under the make up if doing a normal morning for work make up. I will try the newer one and see if it’s any better
