There are tonnes of different skincare oils and sometimes it’s pretty hard to choose one. Deciem have a solution! Enter The Ordinary B Oil which is jam-packed with loads of different oils. B is for Blend! Here’s what you need to know!
So this is the green oil that you may have seen on Deciem’s Instagram channel. It’s not quite as vivid in colour as it looks on the website though.
If you are looking to include an oil in your regime, and I tend to think this is always a good idea, then The Ordinary B Oil would be a brilliant addition. This is because it has so many lovely ingredients that are both nourishing and calming and offer a range of skin benefits.

Skin Benefit Highlights
As I said, it has some gorgeous ingredients in there. As well as a whole host of nourishing oils that will protect the skin from dehydration, there is a lot more going on in this too.
Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil is great for acne-prone skin as it closely mimics sebum and can help to regulate its overproduction. It’s also great for dehydrated skin.
Bisabolol has great healing, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, plus it also helps the other ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin.
Tomato Extract has good antioxiant properties when combined with other antioxidants. This oil contains antioxidant Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Decanone and Vitamin E (Tocopherol). And as well as being a potent antioxidant, Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Decanone is also an anti-irritant and works to boost hyaluronic acid.
Finally, Rosemary Leaf Extract offer loads of benefits too. It is helps balance oil production, minimises lines, aids healing and also has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. As I said, The Ordinary B Oil has A LOT of good stuff going on.
