DECIEM’s best-selling cleanser just got bigger! The Squalane Cleanser is perfectly creamy, nourishing, and highly effective in cleansing away all traces of impurities, grime, excess oil, and makeup, without leaving your face feeling stripped, tight, or dry. The cleanser is also non-comedogenic and soap-free so anyone can benefit from the non-foaming formula. Starting from November 10th, this beautiful cleanser will be available in a bigger 240ml size to reduce order and shipping frequency.

Glycolic Acid 7% Exfoliating Toner – Travel Size (100 ml) – Available November 10th

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

Thanks to the power of social media, this glycolic acid toner made waves and probably broke the internet, but it still continues to sell well as one of DECIEM’s best products. The treatment toner uses 7% Tasmanian pepperberry-derived glycolic acid, along with aloe leaf water and ginseng root extract to smooth away textured skin, dullness, and uneven skin tone to restore a brighter complexion. 

And according to TikTok, this toner is a miracle when used for underarms or used as a pre-cleanse treatment for dandruff. In addition to the original large size, this baby will be available in a 100ml size for you to use during your travels or at the comfort of your home.

You’ll also notice that the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution will be getting a name change to better reflect its purpose as an exfoliating toner; but not to worry – the formula will remain the same.

Best of DECIEM: The Ordinary

Soothing & Barrier Support Serum

Back when the Barbie movie was having its pop culture moment, this serum stole the show and landed in the spotlight as one of DECIEM’s best product launches this year (and they’ve had really good ones, too!) Whether DECIEM intentionally timed the movie launch with this product is a mystery we’ll never know.

But we do know that this serum enjoyed the praise and attention from TikTokers and other Beauty influencers shortly after. There is a lot to say about its unique Barbie pink color from the Vitamin B12, and soothing formula of bisabolol, ceramides, and centella asiatica designed to repair compromised skin barriers and calm the skin. Is the serum worth the buy during the DECIEM Slowvember Sale? Absolutely yes!

Multi-Peptide Lash and Brow Serum

Lashes and brows weren’t what we expected to see DECIEM create a product for (given that the majority of products were for the skin), but this innovative serum was well worth it! This lash and brow serum strengthens and thickens your lashes and brows with the power of peptides, caffeine, panthenol, and arginine. With consistent use twice-daily, you’ll be able to start seeing results in as little as four weeks.

Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA

Simple is best and this moisturizer contains just the right amount of skin nourishing ingredients to keep your skin protected and hydrated from the inside and out. The Natural Moisturizer Factors + HA is a simple cream that strengthens skin barrier function over time. And thanks to the mixture of amino acids, fatty acids, urea, ceramides, sodium PCA, and hyaluronic acid, the emulsion type cream makes the perfect staple for the winter season.

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

This oldie but goodie serum continues to sell well for a reason! The water-based serum contains 10% Niacinamide and zinc to brighten, calm, and improve the skin barrier over time.

That means oily and acne-prone skin types can also benefit from this serum’s soothing and oil-controlling effects. DECIEM is by no means saying that this is an acne treatment, but it does make a great supplementary product to incorporate into your routine.

Glycolipid Cream Cleanser

Say hello to The Ordinary’s take on a nourishing second-step cleanse! This emulsion type cream cleanser is perfect for cleansing away impurities and any remaining traces of makeup post-oil cleanse. The cleanser glides onto your skin to lift away debris and rinses away to reveal soft, happy, and comfortable skin. For best results, pair with the Squalane cleanser if you’re a makeup user, or use alone.

AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Ahh, the Peeling Solution. Ever since TikTok put this exfoliating peel on the map, we experienced seeing so many creative ways for using this baby on the face and even the neck and body. Don’t underestimate the small bottle; this combines 30% AHAs and 2% BHAs to give you near-instant results. Sure, it may seem intimidating at first, but once you follow the instructions, you and your skin won’t go back!

Aloe 2% + NAG 2% Solution

The Ordinary Aloe 2% + NAG 2% Solution

As one of the newer launches this year, the Aloe 2% + Nag 2% (N-Acetyl Glucosamine) Solution is the first product formulated to target and fade leftover acne marks, scars, and hyperpigmentation over time. Not to be mistaken for an acne treatment, this watery-fluid serum is a great product to soothe and calm irritated skin and speed up the post-pimple recovery process, thanks to a combination of peptides, lactic acid, aloe, and N-Acetyl Glucosamine.

Along with 2% salicylic acid for unclogging congested skin, charcoal and kaolin clay join together to mop up excess oils, absorb impurities, and leave skin feeling soft, matte, and comfortable – without feeling stripped or stiff.

Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane

Retinoid is one of the best ingredients to incorporate when you’re starting to see some signs of aging and texture on your skin. And what better way to start than the Granactive Retinoid? This is a beginner and sensitive skin friendly retinol alternative designed to give you potent results without the irritation. Coupled with Squalane, the oil based serum perfectly nourishes and works to even out skin texture and tone.
