THE ORDINARY BIGGEST sale of the YEAR is here! All month long save 23% site-wide...It's SLOWVEMBER!

Updated: Nov 2



Hello friends! The Slowvember sale has started and I know that it is of great interest to so many of you so I have compiled a list of some of the BEST products along with some education (of course) on each of them. What is Slowvember? It is an annual sale held by Deciem (The Ordinary, NIOD) that runs the entire month of November. The only day excluded is Black Friday. It is intended to be the OPPOSITE of urgent. Take your time, learn about the products and be selective. Be sure to check out my corresponding YouTube video for visuals of the products below.
