No Frills All Thrills

At last we can get the results of luxury skincare products for the cost of our daily Pret order, and without paying out for any unnecessary marketing frills or fancy-yet-unproven ingredients.

Affordable, honest and transparent, founder Brandon Truaxe of the Deciem umbrella brand has created one of the first lines of high performance skincare that allows you to experiment with the whole range… and still pay your rent.

Containing highly concentrated active ingredients and without nasty sulphates, formaldehyde mineral oils or parabens, this is a brand with integrity that we can trust, which stands against animal testing.

Added scents and elaborate packaging are abandoned in favour of creating a range of products that actually work, and every skincare concern is catered for. Stars of the range include ‘Buffet’, the ultimate in anti-ageing (packed with wonder ingredient Matrixyl 3000), and ‘Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1%’, which works to fight oily and spot prone skin issues by normalising pores.

The ‘100% Plant Derived Squalene’ hydrates all skin types and is the cheapest squalene on the market at £5.50, while the exfoliating properties of ‘Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%’ are just the ticket for those looking to improve their skin tone; banishing dark spots and redness over time.

It’s time to start experimenting – your key to the perfect skincare routine is just a few bottles away!
