Mass confusion once again in the land of The Ordinary. But direction is provided on the Deciem website, in the form of regimen guides. Hallelujah, there is an actual guide for “signs of aging”.
The AM routine consists of the Squalane Cleanser followed by “Buffet” (see link below for review), finish it off with Natural Moisturizing Factors+ HA. Wouldn’t you know…the one product I don’t have in my arsenal. Had to order for the sake of research….
PM routine: Squalane Cleanser, Buffet, Granactive Retinoid 2% emulsion. I guess three steps is not too time consuming, even for she who passes out before even so much as a facial cleaning wipe before bedtime.
The Squalane Cleanser is another winner. You warm it up in your hands, rub it in your dry skin and wash off with lukewarm water. I wiped my face with a facial cleaning cloth after taking those steps and there was barely a trace of make up left on my skin. It also didn’t leave my skin feeling dry.
Jeez how many feathers can I stick in Deciem’s you-know-what right!? One more! The Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA is the perfect addition to the serums. It eliminates the “rolling” of your foundation after applying the serum. Remember serums are not hydrators….
It’s cute because the Deciem website will refer you to their other (more expensive line) if all else fails. It’s still not shockingly expensive so possibly worth a shot. For now the investment is made in this regimen, and so far I can’t complain…
