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 …

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 …

Rosacea Q&A

Debbie Thomas from the D.Thomas Clinic London joined us in The Ordinary & Deciem Chat Room for a Q&A all about rosacea. Rosacea is an incredibly interesting topic and skin condition which I think many people have but don’t even realise they have it. If you have a lot of redness, rosy cheeks, flushing, visible blood vessels in your face this could be rosacea along with many other symptoms. It may come and go and certain times and can be set off due to stress, food, drink and many other factors. If you think there’s a possibility you have rosacea and it’s making you unhappy, go and speak to someone. Try to keep a diary of what you eat, drink, do or use that could possibly have set it off. Everyone’s skin is different so it’s important to really get to know yours and what is making it react. Read all about rosacea & The Ordinary products. The Q&A with Debbie Thomas. How can you tell if you have Rosacea? Rosacea is normally diagnosed by …
