Walking around Toronto, I had seen a lot of people with a bag that said The Abnormal Beauty Company. I thought the bag looked really nice, but because of that, I thought the products were also expensive. I later found out that there was a store 400m from my house. And after going on their website and seeing how inexpensive the products were, I decided to get a few things and give it a try.
At that moment, my sin was at its very worst. Not even as a teenager my skin looked as bad as it did at that time. I had something that looked like chicken pox (I don’t think it was, but it left a lot of marks on my skin) and the birth control pill I was taking at the time destroyed my skin. None of the products I was using, most of which I had used for years, was helping me deal with the situation. On top of that, it was starting to get cold. I have mixed skin, so I need a moisturizer that will keep my skin hydrated while not giving me acne. And also, I’ve been trying to buy products that are more natural and if they are vegan, even better.
One afternoon after work, I went to Deciem. I don’t remember what I got that day, but the very next day I noticed some improvement on my skin. Three days later I went back and got five more products. One month later, my skin was almost back to normal. I never saw anything like it.
Every time I run out of something, I go back and find something else I haven’t tried yet and I’m never disappointed. Right now, my skin is at it’s very best. I don’t remember the last time my skin was dry, and now I only have hormonal acne that is usually gone within a few days and whatever mark it leaves, is gone in a week.
I recommend Deciem it to everyone. All The Ordinary products cost under $10. That’s cheaper than anything you can get at a pharmacy. And most products are vegan and they last for a very long time. I use most serums twice a day. I got them in October and only now (April) I’m getting a replacement. So basically I need to but it two or three times a year.
My main problem with beauty products and makeup is that coming from a place where is always ridiculously hot, I hate feeling that I have something melting off my face. All Deciem products I have tried so far are so lightweight I don’t even remember I have anything on. My skin can always breathe, and that’s my main criteria. And also the products really work.
Below are my top 5 favourite products. I love all the products I have, but these literally make me smile when I put them on my skin every day, or as Marie Kond would say, they spark joy.
