I love Deciem. I love skincare that is science-based and the way they convey how to use their products, why, and with what other kinds is very attractive to me (in part because I am completely sick of the naturopath scare tactics about "chemicals"). At first, I LOVED this but I started using it with several other Deciem products as part of a new skincare routine. I am part of a Deciem …Read more

This is my favorite product from The Ordinary. There are several others that I like or even love, but this is the one I would keep if I could only choose one.
The only sign of aging I’ve really noticed on my face is the elevens. And they started showing up several years ago. They’re worse when I wake up in the morning because I’m an angry sleeper (and awaker, but at least I can control what …Read more

This is a great chemical exfoliant! I dont use it very often as I’m still trying to finish other products so I told my boyfriend to start using it. He has been complaining about his rough skin texture. His skin had large pores, super bumpy texture (especially on his forehead) and overall just needed help lol.
His routine was very simple, after shower and washing his face :

Wow what can I say? This is a your mileage will vary product if I say so myself. I used this for about two weeks and I broke out with the most horrific acne I have experienced in months. Even when I stopped when I realize this product was breaking me out, the acne and itching persisted. It looks like I need to go back on antibiotics to clear this disaster of my face. I am so mad at myself for …Read more

This product gave me chemical burns.
For months I'd been using it without issue, then starting getting allergy-like symptoms that became progressively worse: rashes, eczema, flaky skin, swelling, burning on my face and neck. I wasn't using this product regularly, 2 p/ week - biweekly (if that), depending on my skin, and symptoms didn't always occur immediately after …Read more

I was excited to try this serum since I like chemical exfoliants and wanted to try something more gentle than glycolic or lactic acid. It is a transparent liquid with a quite light consistency and no scent. At application, it somehow feels oily but absorbs quickly. The packaging is pretty typical for The Ordinary, a dark glass bottle with a dropper. The serum provides light exfoliation and …Read more

From research on skincare forums and case studies I've learnt that Retinol such as this can NOT give you short term results, or even medium term results. In fact, people only start showing results after 6 months use, and the most results after 3 years plus. People who say they got results after just one week probably have dry skin that was in desperate need of moisture, so they are really …Read more

Being used to using prescription retin a, I wasn’t expecting too awful much from this. Granted, I’ve not used retin a in a few months. But this stuff is amazing for my skin. My skin is clearer and smoother than with retin a! I’ve only been using about a month, I don’t expect miracles on the fine lines that are reappearing from not using retin a, and nothing will help the two trenches on my …Read more

Of course with any skin care you need time to see changes/result. I did not see any immediate change on my skin but i had a pleasant time applying it every night as This emulsion sinks in well into my skin, no irritation at all and does not dry my skin. i would say that after time, it did help with my uneven skin tone. Can't say much about keeping whiteheads at bay though cos i do have …Read more
