[SKINCARE] : Deciem The Ordinary Review

6:54:00 PM

I have been using Deciem The Ordinary line for some times now. I have tried a couple of them in the past but here are the three Deciem/TheOrdinary products that I currently use :

  • High Adherence Silicone Primer
  • Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%
  • Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG

The primer is a skincare + makeup in one, as it is used for makeup base. And the other two are skincare that I have been incorporating in my skincare routine for a while now. 

I love how the packaging look, with a simple design and those "chemist-lab" vibes names (which may be confusing to those who are new to skincare and doesn't know about ingredients yet). But if you already know your ingredients then it is actually very convenient to shop at The Ordinary because you'll know which products you need for your skin.

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer
They actually have two variants of primers in The Ordinary range but I chose this one because : (1) I found silicone is a bit better for my makeup base as I have combi skin, and (2) This one is cheaper than the other one hehe..
But nonetheless, this is a very light primer that doesn't feel sticky or clogging, and it works well with my makeup too. They claim that this formula uses advanced adaptive silicones to act as a matte, hydrating, blurring primer for makeup that looks higher in definition and adheres for longer. Well I mostly wear light makeup and this works really fine with my foundation and cake powder, maybe even gives it a high definition look. It fills in pores very nicely so I have a smoother surface to put on my makeup easily. The light formula also doesn't feel cakey or thick, so I really like this one as a neutral primer.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%
This one is my current AHA treatment. I have combination skin and I found out (through trial & error) that my skin looks better with a combination use of both AHA & BHA. I can't use both of them at the same time because my skin would then got irritated. So I use BHA and AHA alternatively every other night, or I use BHA at night and then AHA in the morning if I'm not going outside the house (because AHA is sensitive to sun light). So anyway this is my current AHA, and although I like this one but I might still prefer Glycolic Acid than Lactic Acid as I find this one is a bit lighter than my usual Glycolic Acid. But if you're new to AHA then you might try this Lactic Acid one as I think it's quite a gentle acid to start with :)

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution + EGCG
This is my current undereye treatment and I have been liking it so far because : (a) it doesn't cause milia. And (b) it's so light and absorbs rather quickly into my skin. I always love light skincare formula because I have combination skin that goes towards oily. So anything with a heavy and thick formula doesn't feel comfortable on my skin, it would just clog my pores. I also would usually get milia under my eyes if I use a thick formula or heavy eyecream/treatment, and this one has a light texture and formula, and it doesn't give me milia so I praised it for that :) 
The EGCG in this formula means "highly-purified Epigallocatechin Gallatyl Glucoside (EGCG)" from green tea leaves, which can help with puffiness and dark circles. I find it helps a little bit with my puffiness but for dark circles it might take a longer time (and a routine use) to notice the difference. But so far I am liking it :)

What are your favorite The Ordinary products?
