The Ordinary are a brand from DECIEM. They are an umbrella of brands that focus on advanced functional beauty. In the category of functional beauty, integrity is rare. Commonplace technologies are referred to as groundbreaking and insensible pricing strategies confuse the audience, disguising commodity technologies as advanced.

The Ordinary exists to communicate with integrity and bring to market effective, more familiar technologies at honourable prices. The Ordinary takes pride in honesty, fights innovation stagnancy in the industry and indirectly celebrates the depth of innovation there brands, Hylamide and NIOD, continue to bring to the category.

DECIEM does not test on animals and does not pay others to do so. For this reason, none of their brands are sold in mainland China since such sales require animal testing for registration purposes.

I've used a few brands from the DECIEM range, but The Ordinary is still my favourite. They are so affordable and I'm very happy with the quality of the skincare and foundations. So where can you buy The Ordinary? Well here are some online stores that I've bought from. (You would have to check if they ship to your country).

Online Stores:


So what are my favourite products?
  • Niacinamide 
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity.

Note: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. For persistent acne-related conditions, we recommend the use of Benzoyl Peroxide and/or Retinoic Acid. We do not recommend the use of Salicylic Acid. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits. (Taken directly from the Priceline Online Store).

  • Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water. The molecular size of HA determines its depth of delivery in the skin. This formulation combines low, medium and high-molecular weight HA, as well as a next-generation HA crosspolymer at a combined concentration of 2% for multi-depth hydration. This system is supported with the addition of Vitamin B5 which also enhances surface hydration.

Note: Hyaluronic Acid is found in the skin naturally but its natural function within the skin is not hydration. Many products have used HA to claim hydration benefits, but HA is too large of a molecule to penetrate the skin and instead sits on the surface and can draw moisture out of the skin making the surface feel soft and hydrated temporarily, while making you feel like you need more HA after the product is rinsed. This formula uses three forms of HA with varying molecular weights, as well as an HA crosspolymer, to offer multi-depth hydration and visible plumping without drawing water out of the skin solely to improve temporary surface hydration. (Taken directly from the Priceline Online Store).

  • Natural moisturising factors + HA
This formula offers non-greasy hydration that acts as a direct topical supplement of impaired NMF components. It contains 11 amino acids, phospholipids, alpha/beta/gamma fatty acids, triglycerides, sterols and sterol esters, glycerin, ceramide precursors, urea, saccharides, sodium PCA and hyaluronic acid. It offers immediate hydration and lasting results with continued use. (Taken directly from the Priceline Online Store).

If you are thinking about getting some of The Ordinary, I'd highly recommend you start with these three products! Do you guys have any favourites?

p.s Water serums should be applied before oil-based serums.
