I recently ordered and started using some products from The Ordinary which is part of the Deciem brand. My mother actually started using the products first and she was the one who told me about the company and their products. Their website uses the phrase “clinical formulations with integrity” to describe their brand and they really are just that. It feels so good to be able to discover and use a trustworthy brand at my age. The brand was created to celebrate integrity in its most humble and true form. Don’t we need more of this kind of stuff in the world? (And not just in skincare!). As they rightly say, in the category of functional beauty, integrity is rare.
Here’s an interesting bit about them;
“Commonplace technologies are referred to as groundbreaking and insensible pricing strategies confuse the audience, disguising commodity technologies as advanced. The Ordinary exists to communicate with integrity and bring to market effective, more familiar technologies at honourable prices. The Ordinary takes pride in honesty, fights innovation stagnancy in the industry and indirectly celebrates the depth of innovation our brands.”
Thankfully also, all DECIEM products, across all brands including The Ordinary, are free of parabens, sulphates, mineral oil, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, animal oils, coal tar dyes, formaldehyde, mercury, oxybenzone. DECIEM does not test on animals and does not pay others to do so.
I have recently ordered and started using the following;
High-Spreadability Fluid Primer – 30ml
Reaction: I was a little disappointed with this. It didn’t work so well for me. I applied it and then my make-up and my face overall looked botchy and cakey. It didn’t really spread so well, I think the consistency and texture of the product wasn’t right.
“Buffet” – 30ml
Reaction: I LOVE this product! I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in my skin condition. The texture of the liquid is not sticky, it just glides on so well onto my skin and absorbs it so fast. It’s perfect. I use it morning and night. So happy I’ve come across this product.
