Some of you may have heard about Deciem and some may have not. I thought I might write a quick post about Deciem, The Abnormal Beauty Company and dispel a few myths about it. I am really picky when it comes to skincare and as I suffer from acne, I have to be really careful about what I use on my face on a regular basis.
I ventured into the Deciem store in Spitafields to see whether the store would live up to its reputation. When I arrived at the store, I was struck by its pharmacy like set up with simple bottles lined up on their shelves. The lack of colour on the packaging made me even more curious as I am so used to the glamourous bottles made by some of the top skincare brands. Deciem stocks the skincare brand The Ordinary, Fountain, The Chemistry along with many others.
The one thing I love about The Ordinary products is the high concentration of active ingredients within their products. All their products are backed up by scientific research and evidence so you know that it will work. All the formulations are simple so you are less likely to react to them if you suffer from skin allergies. One of the things that really struck me about their products was how inexpensive they were. I curiously asked why it was so cheap and was told they do not believe in price mark ups on their products and they also don’t promise any miracle cures either.
I loved the fact the customer service was so honest and authentic. I always find when I speak to skincare brands is that they are so ready to replace my entire routine and make me buy all their products. Deciem took the approach to add to my routine what they thought I was missing instead.
The products I bought were:
- The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, ‘High-Strength Vitamin and Mineral Blemish Formula’ – £5.00
- The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, ‘A Hydration Support Formula’ – £5.90
- The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil, ‘Daily Support Formula for All Skin Types’ – £9.00 for 30ml
- The Ordinary Serum Foundation – £5.70 for 30ml
I am really excited to try these products and review them for you. I enjoyed discovering The Ordinary at the Deciem store and I look forward to sharing my experience with you.
