I really like the Ordinary Marula oil but have never used the DE one so I can't compare.I cannot use the DE vitamin C at all...breakouts every time! To be fair, most vitamin C serums do this to me so I don't use them.
I use Buffet day and night and love it. I think it's a good replacement for DE's B Hydra which I was using before. I previously used all Paula's Choice skincare but switched to DE a few months back. I love DE and their philosophy but hate the cost. I know they are a luxury brand so I understand their pricing strategy. I will stick to their cleanser, though, and will buy the liquid one that is coming out soon. That is the one product they have that isn't too expensive IMO. Others have commented on pilling with Buffet but I mix it into DE's marula and have no issues. Can't wait for the Ordinary's marula to come back in stock so I can compare.
My current routine is to mix Buffet and Marula in the AM followed by SPF. For PM, I mix Alpha Arbutin, Buffet and Marula and apply after AHA, retinol, or alone if it's a no treatment night. I also mix in Squalene sometimes for extra moisture. I am testing the 2% retinol on my hands but plan to start using it on my face this week.
The peeling solution along with the 7% glycolic toning solution and rose hip oil arrive tomorrow so I'll let you know how my first use goes.
I have tried the Josie Maran Argan oil and then bought the Ordinary one and see no difference except price $60 vs $6.80.
I do like the Ordinary glycolic toner, best part - it is not drying at all!!! All my friends and co-workers use it and we all love it, hopefully you do too. I can't believe what a great product you get for the price.
Thanks for the tip - I'm going to try the retinol on my hands. I also bought the hand cream from their Chemistry brand and actually see a big difference. I actually took "before" pics of my hands and WOW, it lives up to all the hype as the best hand cream on the market.
