Intro to The Ordinary | Review

It could get a little overwhelming when you’re new to the brand and you feel like you want to try everything. I was like that when I first dropped by the Abnormal Beauty Company at the Queen St. W location. It triggered my curiosity and along with the entire beauty world. I had no idea that this highly-raved skincare brand was just a couple of blocks away from me. I was also looking for cheaper serums that work because the ones at Sephora were just too damn expensive. I did my research first and decided to try 3 of their serums. I wanted something hydrating and antiaging.

So apparently The Abnormal Beauty Company is also called Deciem? Correct me if I’m wrong. They carry different skincare brands like Hylamide, Niod, The Ordinary, and etc. I do get why they are so popular. The minimalistic packaging, the price, the range of products targetted to specific needs? It’s all amazing, but does it work? My expectations were quite high!

This post will talk about:

  • Basic ingredient knowledge
  • Prices in Canadian dollars
  • How I use it
  • When I use it
  • How I use them all together in my skincare routine
  • Effects on my skin
  • Would I repurchase?

Let’s begin! Continue reading

I have been looking at proper serums at Sephora and everything is just so pricey! I haven’t decided if any of it is worth it so I just pushed it aside and postponed buying any skincare item. Luckily, the kind people over at Eden’s Semilla reached out and had me try out their AMAZING serums.

Eden’s Semilla is basically a brand that specialises in natural oils, essential oils and facial serums. Both serums are free of parabens (preservatives) and sulphates, fragrance-free, vegan-friendly and not tested on animals. Continue reading
