What I love about Deciem is that if the product doesn't work or you're not happy with it, they will refund you. I bought this to help with to fight melasma patches and thought if it doesn't work, I can always get my money back.

The serum is fairly thick and doesn't absorb as easily as some. If I don't rub the serum in, it can sit on the skin. 2-3 drops is all …

I have fine wavy hair prone to frizz in humidity. I use Pureology Hydrate & Palmers Coconut oil shampoo and thought this would be worth a try as it claims to hydrate hair. Though this shampoo and matching conditioner claim to be sulphate free, there is another chemical present which left a strange coating that actually flattened/straightened my hair out. Fortunately Superdrug (always …Read more

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios Invisible Face Mist

This is not cheap,, I bought it on offer for £10 for 75ml but by using this, means that make up stays in tact and the size of the canister means that it fits into my bag at work. You have to be careful using the spray so you don't waste the product - some people spray the mist into their hands and then press onto face - I found spraying in short bursts directly on my face works for me. I …Read more

Moisturizers - Deciem - The Ordinary B Oil

This is the fifth oil I have tried from the Ordinary. I rate it slightly less than the other 3 I've tried, mainly as I find it almost too rich/ heavy for my skin - I think it would suit dry to normal skin better than combination skin. Or perhaps I might appreciate its richness more during the colder months of the year. It does have an earthy smell which dissipates fairly quickly. Its …Read more

Conditioner - Palmer's - Coconut Oil Spray Leave-In Conditioner

I use this with the coconut oil shampoo. I have fine wavy hair and using this leave in conditioner, gives my hair a real bounce and shine- its light weight but effective. Sulphate free and excellent value. It outperforms the likes of Redken and Biolage, which cost triple the price. Highly recommend

I have fine wavy hair, which is prone to frizz in high humidity.. This is a creamy shampoo which doesn't weigh my hair down but leaves the curls/waves separated and shiny. I use this with the spray leave in conditioner and they do a brilliant job. Great value and sulphate free

I've been struggling for years to deal with patches of melasma. Due to my Asian ethnicity, I am limited to using certain products
Downside is, the cost and also the peeling. I was prepared for both if Nu derm but in truth it didn't for me. It lightened some parts of the melasma, but after 4.5 months the melasma is still visible.

I took trouble to visit two Skn clinics …

Usually buy LRP Anthelios but was interested in trying this as half the price for the same amount of product and same broad spectrum SPF.
I have combination skin and using this did make a big difference in combating the break through shine I get on my t zone mid morning onward through the day. A light cream which I found it sufficiently moisturising on its own, someone with normal skin may …
