Since its launch in 2013, Canadian brand DECIEM—also known as The Abnormal Beauty Company—has garnered a cult following for its effective retinol-based products and ultra affordable pricing. 

Even celebrities have hopped on the brand’s bandwagon, proving they’re just as “Ordinary” as the rest of us. In fact, the KKW Beauty queen herself, Kim Kardashian, has sworn by The Ordinary’s Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion to reduce dark spots and prevent wrinkles.

And thanks to DECEIM’s affordable pricing, it actually won’t cost much to keep up with this Kardashian.

Right now the brand is running its month-long Slowvember campaign, an anti-Black Friday sale meant to encourage shoppers to slow down and think about making “deliberate, considered purchases”—which also means enjoying a savings of 23% across all their brands and products — except on Black Friday.

But if you’re unsure about where to start, we’ve rounded up 11 must-haves from DECIEM's brands, including The Ordinary, to buff out your beauty arsenal.

Products are already selling quickly, so be sure to shop this sale and restock your beauty essentials before this sale ends.
