Deciem is standing out from the pack this holiday season, just like the company did last year. The parent company for The Ordinary’s Black Friday 2021 sale is actually more of an anti-Black Friday blowout, a boycott of the day when we often spend too much and buy things we don’t really need because we’re moving too fast. It’s all about “Slowvember” for Deciem this year. That means you won’t be able to shop on November 27. But don’t worry — you can still pick up the brand’s affordable skincare at a discount throughout the entire month of November.

“At Deciem, we are working towards minimizing the impact our products have on the earth, including looking at our packaging, water and energy use across our offices and supply chain globally,” Jackie Kankam, Director of Sustainability and Social Impact at Deciem, said in a statement. “Whilst we have started our journey, we are still not a sustainable company. Initiatives
such as our Slowvember campaign encourage everyone to do better for a lasting planet.”

Though you can’t shop from Deciem on November 27, you can still hang out in the stores. Yes, really! They’re staying open so fans of the brand can experience live music and local refreshments, as well as take part in musical and artistic workshops, per the brand.

You have the whole month to shop so you can decide what to grab on your own time. This way, we’ll only pick up what we really need and keep excess products from ending up in landfills. And when we say sale, we mean sale. Everything from Deciem is 23 percent off. That includes The Ordinary, Niod (science-focused skincare at a higher price point), Hylamide (even more skin care!) and Chemistry Brand (a hand-focused line). No idea where to start? Shop some of our favorites, below.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
