Can anyone tell me the difference between the two please and what one offers the skin that the other doesn't if that makes sense? Tia

Hello. Me again. You could use them together if you are very, very dehydrated, but basically the sub Q serum has more ingredients. It has hyaluronic acid, but it also has a few ingredients that are meant to be good for overall skin health and longer term benefits, whereas hyaluronic acid is an immediate but temporary plumper, essentially. Sub Q has things like copper lysinate and peptides, the HA serum doesn't. The latter just focuses on the HA, and has different weights of it, but so does the Sub Q. The Deciem website recommends using them together, as the HA serum is a "booster".

If you're only going to get one, get the Sub Q I would say, which I think you already have.

Thank u so much, yes I already have the sub q which I really like so will stick with that then, now just need to find my night time oil and think I'll be sorted finally! Am definitely considering the jojoba one, the ordinary are bringing out an argan oil soon too so maybe that?? Concerned that may not be as good as jojoba for spot prone skin though

I'm combination and prone to congestion, and although I've only used argan oil a few times I did find it a bit rich, if you know what I mean, although it didn't cause spots or congestion. It was quite a cheap one. The Ordinary one would likely be a better quality and more refined.

I used the neals yard argan oil a few times ages ago and sent it back so must not have got on with it! Do u use jojoba now?

I have quite a few, mostly ones with essential oils though. Sunday Riley Artemis is my favourite, but has essential oils. Her Juno one is free from them, but it is very expensive if you might not get on with it. I do have and use jojoba oil as well. I've got the MV Organics one.

It's weird because I'm fine with some products that contain essential oils but really react to others, I can't seem to determine the trigger though. Am very close to ordering the mv organics jojoba oil

Just ordered some with 10% off

Oh, good work! I really hope you get on with it.

Thank you so do I! I'm going to apply a few drops after my sub q serum in evenings
