An evening with the Really Ree Team and Deciem

You may, or may not, know that as well as my little blog here at That Age Style, I am also a contributor for Reallyree.com. I wrote my first post for Reallyree.com last April and continue to write regularly for Ree and the site. To say that this opportunity has been one of my top highlights during my blogging journey is a major understatement. And as well as being able to hone my writing and get to try and review many different beauty products, I am part of a growing team of wonderful contributors - some of whom I got to meet last Friday evening.

Last year Ree, Rebecca and Philip put on a wonderful evening at Space NK and as we all had such a fab evening, they decided to treat all the contributors to another event. And this time it was at brand of the moment and one which I have been loving for a while.. Deciem.

Deciem's store in London is at the front of Spitalfields market and although it is a small shop, it is packed full with all the Deciem brands.
You would have heard of brands such as The Ordinary and NIOD from Deciem and as well as these two there is also:

  • The Chemistry Brand - anti aging hand and body range
  • White RX - pigmentation skincare
  • Hylamide - multi depth skincare
  • Fountain - beauty supplements
  • Stemm - hair skincare
  • AB Crew - male fitness and beauty
  • Hif - hair cleansing conditioners

To talk us through the Deciem brands and answer questions was Nicola Kilner, the Co CEO of Deciem. I had watched Nicola on QVC when Deciem was featured on the channel and she is as lovely in real life as she seemed. Nicole explained the concept of Deciem, why she had wanted to work with them and really explained what had initially seemed to me to be an overwhelming range of products. I am even more excited about this brand than I was before and cannot wait for more exciting launches, particularly from The Ordinary.

After the Q&A, we were then let lose to browse, purchase and mingle and chat with Ree and Rebecca, the Deciem crew and of course all the other lovely contributors. It was so nice to chat with people I had met last year and also new faces as well. It was like an AA meeting for beauty junkies and it felt like I was in a safe and accepting environment to be able to talk about primers, foundations and highlighters at great length without any bored expressions!

I also got colour matched so now have the correct shade of both the The Ordinary Colours Serum and Coverage foundations, which I have written about here.

And then before I knew it, it was time to leave to get my train back but not before receiving an incredibly generous goodie bag filled with products from The Ordinary - some of which I have already tried and love and a lot of new things. I'll carry on trying out the new bits and will report back to you soon.
I also purchased a few items myself, including a 12 hour mattifying primer from Hylamide - my first item from this range, so I'll review this as well once I've put it through it's paces, which is not difficult in this current hot and muggy weather.

Thank you to Ree, Rebecca and the Deciem Team for a fabulous evening - looking forward to the next one!
