The New The Ordinary Product

What´s the new The Ordinary Product?

The New The Ordinary Product One of our very own #deciemaddicts in the Facebook Group spotted this photo on the Deciem VP´s Instagram Story. A photo of a sample product with the wording “this will break the internet“. If you zoom right in, you will see the first letter is ´S´, then towards the end is an E and maybe an R. Could it be a salicylic acid powder? So what could the new The Ordinary product be? These are quite a few The Ordinary products that are in the pipeline. Some already feature on The Ordinary website and others have been mentioned by Nicola Kilner, CEO of Deciem herself on podcasts. If you´re a newbie to Deciem there are a couple of things you should know. 1. They love to tease us. 2. Their timings aren´t great. We waited months, maybe even years for the first Sun Creams to come out and then they arrived after the summer. The watercolors have been listed on the website for years now and the concealers and the …

The Ordinary Mistakes

The Ordinary Mistakes – Top 10 Mistakes by the Deciem Addicts

If you have just heard about The Ordinary, I bet you´re really excited and just want to order one of everything because it all looks so cheap. Before you do, here’s the top 10 The Ordinary mistakes. Reading this will save you time, money, and stress. 1. Not Asking For A Regimen If you’re new to The Ordinary & Deciem or skincare in general, I highly advise you to ask Deciem for a personalized routine.

You could have a look at some of these Deciem routines. 2. Thinking it’s all so cheap & buying too much When you first hear about The Ordinary you get so excited and start throwing these cute little black and white boxes into your basket because it´s so cheap. Before you know it, you’ve spent more on skincare than you ever have. Ask for a regimen! You …

Deciem Chat Room

Deciem Q&A in the Deciem Chat Room

The last time Deciem held a Q&A in The Ordinary & Deciem Chat Room was September 2017 where Brandon Truaxe answered every single question himself. He was only due online for a couple of hours but returned over a 24 hour period to finish what he started as promised. You can find this whole conversation in the Facebook Group if you go to files / Brandon Truaxe Event. July 8th Deciem was back helping the Deciem Addicts with all their skin concerns. Here are just a few questions from the Deciem Q&A in the Deciem Chat Room. Find the full post here. Where is The Ordinary Salicylic Acid? Deciem says: It’s taking a little longer than usual! We understand that Salicylic acid is a well-loved ingredient and we’re currently working on the reformulation. Our lab is working really hard to make sure it’s available as soon as possible. Do you still sell the Abnomaly brand? Deciem say: Yes we do! We’re working on updating the formula and packaging and hope it will be available again …

Glycolic Acid Deodorant

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid Deodorant

Deciem Chat Room is the best place for tips and tricks and using The Ordinary Glycolic Acid as a deodorant has been one of the best tips ever. Do you itch like mad after you apply your deodorant? Are you fed up trying them all? If your answers are yes and yes, read on. The Ordinary Glycolic Acid Deodorant I read about using The Ordinary Glycolic Acid as a deodorant in The Ordinary & Deciem Chat Room quite a while ago. I was quite content with my Salt of the Earth (you may recognize the bottle above), but it´s quite hard to get hold of where I live. My history with deodorants Over the years, deodorants have irritated me more and more. My armpits became incredibly itchy and unless I could get back into a shower straight away, I would scratch and scratch making my skin really red and sore.   Some of these hypoallergenic deodorants were quite possibly the worst deodorants ever. They irritated more than the normal ones and one brought me out in …
