The Ordinary skincare is anything but

The Ordinary Deciem Skincare
A skincare haul is long overdue. It makes sense seeing as my spending habits these days have been leaning more towards style and home goods. There’s nothing in here that you wouldn’t have heard of before, but they are all things that I picked up recently and bloomin’ love to use. Being a self confessed skincare junkie, when The Ordinary popped up on ASOS Beauty and Beauty Bay these babies went straight my basket. The descriptions of the products are very science and ingredients based so I thought the below might help as a bit of a guide if you were thinking about trying anything from the range...

This solution reduces the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion and
Balances visible sebum activity.

I apply this all over my face morning and evening before heavier creams.
