Recently, whilst reading some random beauty article I came across brief praise about a beauty brand I had never heard of- Deciem. The brand had very medical and simplistic packaging. I immediately started researching and checked to see if there were a brick and mortar nearby. There was no store-front near my home; however, on Wednesdays when I travel to and from the city, there would be one up on my route, needless to say, I made the stop.
After a killer cycling class, I walked down from Queen St to the Distillery District, walking past the huge heart sculpture the store was on my right (south side). I walked in and felt like a kid in a skincare/product candy store. The design was minimal and the ceilings were high. The floors featured concrete and turf trim. The products were displayed along the walls on a sort of scaffolding styled shelving system, all very industrial looking; exposed wires, light bulbs, simple tiles, and wooden picnic tables. The general aesthetic of the space left the shopper and viewer to really explore the product, as opposed to getting distracted by the furnishings.
I was really intrigued by this company due to their prices and general aesthetic. The company has a very clean appeal and they focus on simplifying active ingredients. Although they list this as the about for one of their 11 brands (yes that’s right 11 brands) I feel as though it extends to all of their work: “[…] an evolving collection of treatments offering familiar, effective clinical technologies positioned to raise pricing and communication integrity in skincare”.
They don’t jerk you around. You pay for what you get and thus far all of their products have wowed me in one way or another.

It’s hard to find a company that does it all and is honest about the products/ingredients they put out. I look forward to reviewing each product separately and showing you textures/consistencies, packaging and overall opinions of the products.
Get ready for me to further break down my purchases. I have now tried over a dozen products and I can’t wait to fully dissect the ingredients, the uses etc.
I can’t wait to share this with you!
