Deciem is standing out from the pack this holiday season, just like the company has done the past four years to great success. The parent company for The Ordinary’s Black Friday 2023 sale is an anti-Black Friday blowout, a boycott of the day when we often spend too much and buy things we don’t need because we’re moving too fast.
It’s all about “Slowvember” for Deciem. That means you won’t be able to shop on November 27. The website and stores will be closed. But don’t worry — you can still pick up the brand’s affordable skincare at a discount throughout the entire month of November.
“At Deciem, we are working towards minimizing the impact our products have on the earth, including looking at our packaging, water and energy use across our offices and supply chain globally,” Jackie Kankam, Director of Sustainability and Social Impact at Deciem, previously said in a statement. “Whilst we have started our journey, we are still not a sustainable company. Initiatives such as our Slowvember campaign encourage everyone to do better for a lasting planet.”
You have the whole month to shop so you can decide what to grab on your own time. This way, we’ll only pick up what we really need and keep excess products from ending up in landfills. And when we say sale, we mean sale. Everything from Deciem is 23 percent off. That includes The Ordinary and Niod (science-focused skincare at a higher price point).
Want to save even more money? The Ordinary created limited-edition, only-only product collections for unique skin types, such as The Smooth Skin Collection to target uneven skin texture. It comes with Glucoside Foaming Cleanser, Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, and Natural Moisturizing Factors + Beta Glucan, at an additional 5 percent off if you buy the whole set together.
As if that wasn’t enough, on November 10, you’ll be able to shop bigger sizes of two best-sellers: a 240mL Squalane Cleanser and 100mL Glycolic Acid 7% Exfoliating Solution.
