Deciem The Ordinary Haul

by - 14:16:00

I feel like this post is going to be one of many at this point but I figured there would be no harm in putting it up. This past week (I think) Deciem launched their latest offering, The Ordinary. In short, they're affordable serums containing otherwise high priced ingredients.

From Hyaluronic Acid to Retinol, there's pretty much something for everyone in the range and as the prices are so good, there's really nothing to lose if you don't like them. I placed my order just before all hell broke loose and the website went down and I'm glad I got in there sooner rather than later. 

Of the options available, the two I thought most suited to my needs would be the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum (5) and the 5% Lactic Acid + HA 2% serum (£5.50). The Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) serum aims to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and congestion. My skin hasn't been great lately, so I figured I'd see whether this could help clear things up. As for the Lactic Acid serum, I thought it might be a good replacement for my Nip and Fab pads. There's nothing wrong with the pads at all, but if this works the same and is cheaper it would be amazing. After all why would you spend more than you have to for the same results. 

I've had these products for four days now, so it's safe to say that I'm in no position to review the actual products. I'm currently using them and will continue to do so for 4-6 weeks before I give you guys my thoughts. 

One thing I can give you my opinion on is the packaging. Online, the packaging seems to be attracting a bit of negativity. People think it's basic and they don't like the dropper format. I on the other hand quite like both. For the price, I don't think you should expect high end packaging. The bottles themselves and the white boxes are non-offensive and I actually think they're quite sleek. At the end of the day I'd rather have a great product in c**p packaging than the other way around. 

So yeah, I'm excited to keep using these and I'll be sure to let you know how I get on. I'm really hoping these are as good as I want them to be. I love skincare but I really dislike how expensive it can be. For a brand to make these high performance ingredients accessible to all is a real game changer. If they can do it, then why can't the bigger brands?

Anyways, enough of my ramblings. Go have a great weekend guys and if you do end up shopping The Ordinary line, please let me know what you bought and how you're getting on with it!
