What is going on with skincare brand Deciem?

I have loved The Ordinary since I first got my hands on their products and I’ve had a lot of success with them but bloody hell the owner of the brand makes me want to never ever use their products ever again.

Has anyone else been watching their Instagram? There are tales of alleged blackmail, disclosing private medical details, publishing private emails and a whole load of stuff.

Is anyone else following this?

Yeah he is totally out of control. I can only think that they must still be making shit ton of money, or else Estee Lauder would have figured out a way to get rid of him by now. Or at the very least prise the phone from his hands.

Yes Brandon is nuts. I am always shocked he hasn’t been sectioned yet - some of the things he posts are quite concerning.

Yes it is baffling that Estee Lauder haven’t shut him down. Wasn’t it one of the Lauder family he has been ranting at/about?

A new brand The Inkey List has just been launched. Similar products and prices to The Ordinary with clearer descriptions and less drama. m.feelunique.com/brands/inkey?q=&filter=fh_location=//c1/en_GB/brand=%7Ba1662%7D/in_stock>%7Bin%7D

Thank you for that! It is useful to know there is similar out there. I’m going to use up my products from The Ordinary but I won’t be giving them any more money.

I ended up unfollowing on Instagram. Mostly because I found using insta stories to get followers to call the police for him and then asking the followers to give abuse to commenters for pointing out why this is ridiculous, just vile.

Is it still going on?

Once you add up their recommended beauty regime... It's no different to buying creams and acids with all sorted. Plus you're not supporting a raving lunatic.

I am a huge fan of Deciem and The Ordinary products, but Brandon really seems to be out of control. The Instagram account is like watching a slo-mo car crash.

It was around April/May I think. He thought a taxi driver was trying to kidnap him or his friend. Then calling the airport staff racists. Asked followers to call the police, but didn't say where he was. Just utterly bizarre.

I never seen anything like it!
It’s a real shame because he seems to have a head for great ideas and creating useful productsz

Products are good, and I have learned a lot about skin care from Deciem but I just don’t want to give them my money any more. Garden of Wisdom from Victoria Health are good to replace The Ordinary, does any one have any ideas for replacing NIOD products?
