The Ordinary Prices range from around 4$ up to 29$

The Ordinary now has over 50 products covering acids, vitamin cs, Retinols, peptides, antioxidants and oils and hydration. They also have foundations and concealers are in the pipeline. It is a confusing brand because of all the names, the layering and conflicts. The names are simply the ingredients which allow you to decide to what you put on your skin and really target the skin concerns you may have. If you are finding it all confusing, the best thing is to ask for a regimen or look through all these The Ordinary skincare routines.

Deciem say: The Ordinary is an evolving collection of treatments offering familiar, effective clinical technologies positioned to raise pricing and communication integrity in skincare. The brand was created to celebrate integrity in its most humble and true form. Its offering is pioneering, not in the familiar technologies it uses, but in its honesty and integrity. The Ordinary is born to disallow commodity to be disguised as ingenuity. The Ordinary is “Clinical formulations with integrity”.

Hylamide prices range from 10$ to 27$

Hylamide is totally underrated in my own opinion. It´s a fabulous, simple good value skincare brand. All prices were reduced a few years ago by up to 50%. If you are totally new to skincare, buying The Core Series which comprises of a cleanser, hydrating mist, face and eye serum is a great place to start. It has everything you need to start your skincare journey. Don’t forget a good SPF!

Deciem say: Hylamide brings a mindful approach to skincare with a modest collection of multi-depth, multi-function formulas. Using the very latest in next-generation actives, Hylamide promotes optimum skin performance via minimalist regimens. Hylamide simplifies caring for skin without compromising on efficacy. Minimal regimens with maximum results. No previous skincare experience required.

NIOD prices range from around 28$ up to 90$

When you arrive at the NIOD website, it’s pretty overwhelming with its strange names and long-winded explanations which you can read over and over again and still have no idea what it is. I felt the same so I have created a simple guide to NIOD.

Deciem say: NIOD stands for Non-Invasive Options in Dermal Science uses leading-edge ingredients and ground-breaking technology to bring your skin the best the industry has to offer and has been described as the “Crown Jewel” of Deciem.
