This cream is a bit better than the serum because it’s not sticky, but I wouldn’t buy it again. Nothing special.

Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid + B5 is supposed to hydrate. It is sticky on the skin. I don’t really see or feel a difference after a couple of bottles. I won’t buy this again. The only plus is that it’s cheap.


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

This product is pure magic! I have already repurchased, I love it so much. A staple in my skincare. Really brightens the skin, makes it radiant, more plump, more even. And the results are visible literally overnight!
I'm totally a skincare junkie, and someone who always reads ingredients lists. I'm regularly using Retin-A, LAA, and Alpha Lipoic acid is definitely one of those products that really visibly improve the skin.
I use it every other night, the nights when I don't use Retin-A, and very happy with the results. It is pretty strong, but I haven't gotten any irritation from it. However, I find the best way to use it is adding just one drop into the oil of your choice or squalane, it still delivers excellent result, but there is definitely zero stinging or irritation this way.
Must have for me!

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2%+B5

As a child, a cat scratched me above my lip and left a vertical scar. About 3-4 years ago, after my first whole 30, I lost about 10-12 lb and my face changed. Suddenly the cat scar combined with years of RBF gave me upper lip wrinkles. After using this serum for a week, those lines aren't as prominent! I am using 2-3 drops to cover my entire face, concentrating on my upper lip area and under my eyes- basically where the smile lines/crows feet develop. This is a great moisturizer but if you use the entire dropper full, it will be sticky and will pill. I have seen better results with this (and the buffet, vit c in silicone) than I did with retinol. I'm very happy I purchased this.

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

It's just brilliant. One of the few products that truly proves you don't need extravagant ingredients (or an extravagant pricetag) to actually do something. It works perfectly to brighten, clear, even firm my face. The thing is, you need to be consistent with it. I use it every Sunday and Wednesday night, and after three sessions I finally started to see noticeable improvement in my acne scars, some areas of congestion, and the overall texture of my skin.

Then I stockpiled, because I realised I can't be without this. Ever!

Treatments (Face) -Deciem -Ascorbic acid 8% and Alpha Arbuthnot 2%

on 7/14/2018 8:26:00 AM

In my never ending quest to conquer my melasma I have used countless serums, toners, lotions and creams that claim to brighten, fade, lighten the brown patches on my cheeks and upper lip only to see them continue to spread and darken. In the last year I strictly used La praire and Skinceauticals in my effort to erase them. I was spending about $800 every 3 months for very minimal results. However, 2 days use of The Ordinary’s Ascorbic Acid and Alpha Arbutin did more to fade the marks than one years use of Skinceaticals’s CE Ferulic.

I rated this product 4 lippies because it’s only been two days. I will evaluate further in about 2 weeks. The consistency is thicker than other serums due to the base, therefore very little is needed. There is no noticeable scent.

I’ve also added Bioloque Recherche’s Lotion P50 about 5 days ago, which is an amazing product and I believe does bring my skin to the proper Ph in order to make all other products to follow more effective.

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

on 7/14/2018 3:13:00 AM

I like this primer because it’s cheap and does its job.

Pros:
- CHEAP
- holds the oils at bay (though blotting is still necessary)
- sanitary packaging; squeeze tube so you can get all the product
- smooth application
- no silicone feel
- foundation blends in with it just fine; does not separate

Cons:
- none that I can think of lol.

I prefer this primer over my smash box photo finish primer because I don’t like the silicone feeling it brings.

Foundations -Deciem -The Ordinary Coverage Foundation

on 7/14/2018 3:02:00 AM

foto

Background: oily, acne prone, redness

Pros:
- price
- shade range
- packaging (it has a pump!)
- nice consistency and easy to apply with sponge or brush
- light coverage; is buildable

Cons:
- never sets. even after powder, it still transfers (not sure if it’s because I’m oily skin?)
- does it keep oils at bay? Can’t say because it never set for me lol

Because it never sets, I won’t buy this again. Wish it worked out for me though because of the price and shade range!

My skin is dry and a bit dull. So I just started using this at night after Alpa Arbutin, (toner, Alpa Arbutin, then vit c). Everything was good and i love this product, even the texture is rough and does tingly my face, it means this product works, however today is the day 5th and i can see my face looks so much brighter, i didn’t know that those product actualy give me that fast result, but on the 6th day of using this, i dont know whether it’s the Vit C or the Alpa Aburtin, the areas around my eyes shown bumps like little acnes. I guest im not gonna using this Vit C product everynight just 2-3 night per time.

I was drawn to The Ordinary due to a friends recommendation, and also the low price attracted me! I really enjoyed using this serum. It made my skin feel smooth and look radiant. My pore size looks smaller after using this for a month, and fine lines are plumped. It is a really fluid light serum, and I use it under my day moisturizer and SPF. Love this product!

I love the serums from The Ordinary so thought I would give this moisturizer a go. It was pretty average to be honest. Didn't moisturize anywhere enough for my skin, but in saying that it is winter where I live so it could be partly why.
But it also didn't look good under my makeup, it made my foundation look a bit feathery or something and no amount of blending would smooth it out. Also it didn't leave my skin feeling nice, over all this moisturizer is nothing special.


Moisturizers -Deciem -The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics

on 7/10/2018 9:08:00 PM

Not sold on this, to be honest. I was drawn to this over claims of a light hydrating booster serum, perfect for summer. I'm not sure I even noticed a difference when using it - it's very thin and watery, and easily sinks into skin, but unfortunately its hydration properties aren't great and skin feels dry again soon afterwards if no heavier cream or serum is used afterwards. It has a strange scent which some people can't stand, but for me the smell goes once it's on the skin. I've not noticed any significant effects when mixed with a moisturiser either. However, the good news is that it didn't make my skin any worse.

I won't repurchase this as there's no point buying something that doesn't appear to do anything.


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

on 7/10/2018 4:45:00 PM

I am SO impressed by this little product! It's the strongest at home peel (by a large margin) that I've used, and I didn't really know what to expect from it. Especially since it's seriously cheap. It tingles and warms up a bit upon application - no real sting to speak of. The mask is known as the blood mask for a reason, and your mirror image will definitely look a little gruesome once the mask is applied. However, this makes it easy to check that you've applied the mask evenly, and even better, that you've rinsed all traces of it off after the recommended ten minutes.

After rinsing the mask off my skin feels incredibly soft, and looks amazingly clear. I expected the skin to feel a little bit sensitive afterwards, but it feels absolutely fine. I tend to focus on calming products after the peel, just to be on the safe side, and I always wake up with glowing and healthy-looking skin the next day.

This chemical peel has seriously limited my need for and use of physical peels, which I think is great. Most of the time I use it only once a week as to not over-do it with acids in general, but I think it's gentle enough to use twice a week too. Particularly if you don't really use any other AHA products. I will without a doubt repurchase this when the times comes. Though that won't be for a while yet, since a little goes a long way with this product. What more can you ask for?

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan
+ Great price
+ Has the right PH to be effective (between 3,5 and 3,7)
+ Leaves skin smooth and glowing
+ Doesn't feel irritating, drying or overly abrasive
+ The packaging, while simple, works well and looks quite sleek in my bathroom cabinet

- None that I've found so far

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

on 7/10/2018 4:22:00 PM

foto

This is a very decent primer for a highly wallet friendly price. For having the name silicone primer it's not actually very silicone-y in texture. In other words, it's not the typical ultra blurring, "creates a barrier on top of your skin" type primer. It's more of a thick cream that feels quite hydrating. I think it'd do even better on drier skin than mine (I have combination skin with an oily t-zone), but it gives a pretty nice canvas to work with all the same.

I won't be running out the door to repurchase it, but it works well enough for everyday use that I'll definitely use it up.

+ Cruelty free
+ Vegan
+ Alcohol free
+ Very affordable
+ Gives a decently smooth base, i.e. takes care of the worst (though that's about it)
+ Works as a pretty hydrating base without feeling or looking oily

- Out of the claims "matte, hydrating, blurring" only the hydrating part strikes me as true
- Doesn't fill out bigger pores very well since it's more of a cream
- Can't say that I've noticed it prolonging the wear of my foundation much
