A lifesaver for reducing pigmentation
I'd done a significant amount of research on Vit C in serums and its notorious instability, so I wanted to opt for a powder to extend its shelf life and combine it with my already extensive collection of night creams. With the L-absorpic acid it's fabulous, plays nicely with everything that I've mixed it with and I'm already noticing a difference in it reducing some pigmentation spots on my cheeks after just a couple of weeks. Absolutely amazing and 10x better than some of the Vit C serums that are $200+!

Most Helpful Criticism

Good for the price
I like this Vitamin C powder but don't love it. It definitely works and makes your skin incredibly glowy but it can be messy and using too much leaves it sitting on your skin, peeling and flaking away for the rest of the day. I also found it doesn't layer well with some heavier moisturisers.
  1. A lifesaver for reducing pigmentation

  2. Love it, but it requires trial and error

    I've discovered that less is definitely more with this product. I used too much once, and my face looked worse than the night before. However, if you use maybe half a scoop of that tiny little scooper, or a bit less, you will definitely wake up with smoother, glowier skin than when you went to sleep. Too much, however, can make you drier and peel. So it does require a bit of trial and error depending on how much your skin can take/ what it requires to get the best results. I didn't think this jar was going to last that long but I've had it since January and I'm not even halfway through the jar, so it's a good investment as well.

    It works well with the Moisturising Factors moisturiser, as well as with rosehip oil mixed in too. If you want to give vitamin C powders a try, absolutely try this, but do start out with a little bit at a time to see what it takes to see results, and be careful about adding too much.

    The one issue I have with this is the SMELL. The powder itself has no scent, but I always find that it leaves a terrible metallic smell on my hands and face, as well as stains the skin between my fingers if I don't rinse it off well enough.
  3. LOVE LOVE

    I loveeeeee this product. I don't care thats its a little messy and the spoon is a silly shape, it works wonders. I use it mixed with buffet serum and results are super glowy skin when I wake up. I find I also have better results with the salicylic acid when using this over the top. Blemishes are always gone the next day. I did get carried away and mixed it in with body lotion and used it all over me and then wore a nightie to bed on my nice white sheets and it looked like I had sweated a spray tan off the next morning so keep that in mind. I actually have bought black sheets so I can use this in body lotion every week and not have to worry about staining.
  4. Good for the price

    I like this Vitamin C powder but don't love it. It definitely works and makes your skin incredibly glowy but it can be messy and using too much leaves it sitting on your skin, peeling and flaking away for the rest of the day. I also found it doesn't layer well with some heavier moisturisers.
  5. The Best Product I Own

    I honestly cannot believe how great this it. I mix one spoonful into standard moisturiser or TO Hyaluronic acid every night or every second night - hardly ever tingles. It is the most brightening product I have ever tried and noticed a difference in how glowy my skin was after two days. I don't use it if I'm breaking out, but haven't found that it's irritating at all as I started small and built my usage up. Miles better than any other vitamin C product from TO and incred value for money.
  6. Genius Product

    I use this a couple times a week at night. It's a super gentle AHA that really brightens your skin. I previously used glycolic acid but I have found this to be much gentler.
  7. This makes my face so bright and dewy

    I love love love this product! I mix a bit in my morning moisturiser and it makes my skin bright and dewy looking. Such a cheap product that makes a difference. I put a small scoop onto my palm and then add a pea sized bit of moisturiser and mix to form a paste which I then apply. I will repurchase this for sure when it runs out.
  8. Love this

    I love the idea of this powder because you can easily mix it with any serum you want to cater to your skin. I mix it with 5 drops of the Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% in my palms and mix it with my finger. This combination makes my skin all glowy and helps with skin tone and pigmentation
  9. great

    has really smoothed the texture of my skin!
  10. Great product but stains fingernails and pillows

    I liked what this did for my skin, but have had to switch to a different form of Vitamin C because this one caused my fingernails to turn an ugly yellow brown, like someone who smokes 3 packets a day. It also stained my pillowcases but washes out easily enough. SO, great product with unexpected and unsightly side effects.
  11. Superb idea

    I absolutely love the idea behind this. You can put it in any serum which makes the incorporation of vitamin c in your skincare very easy. I don't like the smell of it, however I wake up with smooth skin in the morning and have noticed a reduction in pigmentation. Incredible price as well, highly recommend
  12. Cheap and effective

    Great price for functional product. I mix this powder in with moisturiser or serum and let it sink into the skin. Definitely have seen a little lightening of my blemishes over the course of 3 weeks. Only issue is that the powder is a bit of a hassle to have to mix into the serum/ moisturiser - an all in one treatment may be more convenient.
  13. When you need those extra antioxidants

    I love how it comes in a form of powder. It has a tiny scoop included and I always use one scoop. I put one scoop in my palm, then drop from one of my serums like Marula Oil or B Oil or even The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% , mix it with the tip of your finger. It gets smooth super easy. Then put on your face. I use it as part of my night routine. My skin feels soft as a baby's bum the next day and it evened out my skin tone after like a month. Super cheap and super effective!
  14. Favourite Vitamin C product

    I think it's a great way to use l-ascorbic acid in the powder form to avoid the oxidization.
    To avoid the 'messiness', you may scoop some out into a small empty loose powder container and then just tip some out each time. For me it's easier to mix the powder with moisturizer this way than to layer products.
  15. Such a good idea

    This is a great way to give your skin vitamin C. I have tried many serums with only a 3 month after opening expiry date as well as creams with awful textures and undesirable filler ingredients. Having pure vitamin C powder that I can dissolve into my own toners or serums is an amazing idea and I really enjoy using this product. It gives my skin a nice glow and reduced my breakouts.
  16. Great product for soft and smooth skin

    It’s a great product. My skin feel soft and smooth with natural glow. Highly recommend.
  17. Careful...

    I bought this product a couple months ago and I gotta say I am not a big fan yet. I was quite excited and pleased with the results when I first tried it but but then I had a massive breakout on my chin, like I have NEVER had before to the point where my chin had this horrendous texture....the stuff of nightmares....I actually cried.

    I don't have sensitive skin but looking back I was using it every day rather than easing it into my routine, which is why I am not going to swear it off completely. Now that my skin has gone back to normal I will try using it once a week and take it from there but I am definitely scared, specially considering I only used about half the recommended amount, this stuff is powerful so definitely be careful and take your time with it. I will check back in a couple months for another review.
  18. Great product for great value!

    I’ve tried a few different vitamin c applications and this one is by far the best. I use it with the ordinary moisturiser or rosehip oil or HA. I use it at night and occasionally during the day under makeup with moisturiser if I’m looking for an extra plump and smooth look. My skin glows and is so smooth after using. Just be careful not to use too much! And wash your hands as it is prone to staining, especially under the nails.
  19. Love this

    I absolutely love this powder. The Ordinary vitamin C suspension irritated my skin but this powder mixed with my night time moisturiser feels amazing
  20. Pretty effective

    This is a good effective vitamin C very effective has helped fade my pigmentation and my skin glows when I wake up in the morning.
  21. Love it

    Loved this, would highly recommend. Good starting point for vitamin c as you can choose how much you use, start small and work your way up. I use it with the ordinary moisturiser every second night and wake up with baby soft skin
  22. Outstanding vitamin c - baby smooth skin

    Excellent high quality vit c. I mix it with Trilogy Antioxidant and rosehip oil. Just a rice grain amount - less is more this stuff is strong. My skin is even, baby smooth and luminous. As vit c degraded and oxydises quickly mixing it everyday into my oil means I get the highest quality product working on my skin. Great price point.
  23. Love it

    I love this product. I mix it with the ordinary natural moisturizing factors. I wake up with my skin looking brighter. Also makes my skin really soft!
  24. Amazing

    I have skin that’s prone to redness around my nose and chin I have used quite a few different products that claim to stop redness and pigmentation but nothing seems to really help the redness as much as this has in the past few days of using it! I’m amazed at the results in such a short amount of time my skin looks flawless! I used two scoops as I was super excited and went a little over board, but still didn’t get any tingling or irritation at all I mixed it with The Ordanary HA+ natural moisturising factors seems to work really well,
    although it can feel a little dry so can’t wait to try and mix it with other ordinary products aswell!
    Cannot recommend this enough for its price and effectiveness!
  25. Easy and effective.

    Easy and works a treat on my pigmentation.
  26. Works Great

    I love this little pot of L-Ascorbic Acid Powder. It is fantastic to mix with other serums etc and you wake up with skin that glows. Not too big a jar so great for travelling.
  27. Nice

    I use it on my body mixed with body lotion. It brightens my skin definitely!
  28. rapid results

    The first time I used this I mixed half a spoon in with my moisturiser and the next morning my skin was visibly brighter and more glowy. I have been using it everyday and have had great results! some people may not like the fact that you have to mix in the powder with other products/make your own solutions as it takes a little more time, but personally I find it really fun and love making skincare concoctions! it mixes well with cream moisturisers and hyaluronic acids, though I tried it with the Ordinary's 100% squalane and it felt slightly strange and grainy. would 1000x recommend this product
  29. Great product and price point

    Such a great price I actually bought this to use on sun damaged skin on my arms/chest. It is slowly working. Well worth the price, if a little messy.
  30. Good and affordable

    It's a good product, affordable and I would say effective. The only cons is that the powder may not mixed thoroughly and can be messy if you are not careful or rushing. But so far my skin feels smoother. Not bad!
  31. I love this stuff!

    Okay, so the jar is a bit of a pain (unscrew lid, have spoon ready, pump serum on back of hand, put on spoonful - level - of C powder before serum runs away, mix and apply) but really, for the price it's reasonable.
    I found no stinging, but have used VitC for a while now. This one definitely smooths the skin and is working on my sunspots - especially the one on the back of my hand, which is why I mix it there in the first place.
    I'll be sticking with this one, I think.
  32. Good product

    This is a good product. It smoothen my skin. I mixed this in my moisturiser, body lotion and toner. Cons... it does stain on clothes and pillows.
  33. Okay

    I wasn't in love with the product but it was pretty effective and great for the price
  34. Good so far

    Only have tried for a week now, I do like it so far. I have no stinging from it. I mix 1/2 scoop with the Ordinary HA in the morning. My skin did look a bit brighter, not sure tho, would like to use it more to see if it helps with pigmentation. I also mix it with serums and moisturizers on diff days. I def prefer this vit C than the other one from the Ordinary, which was gritty and harsh in my skin with no results
  35. Packs a Glowy Punch - beware of how much you use

    I can certainly vouch for the efftiveness of this product.
    I use this in the morning and make up a litle serum/emulsion using 1/3 of a spoon (the one included in the pot) of this powder mixed in with a few drops of other oils/serums(e.g. buffet,/vitamin e oil/Hyaluronic acid) as a part of my AM routine. It gives me a wonderful glow , probably the most noticeable of any product ive used!

    However, please note: this stuff is STRONG. I really think there should be more of a warning or detailed instructions included for this product. The first time I used it, I used a generous half spoon and boy was that TOO much for my skin to handle! Start small is my advice, maximum 1/4 of spoon and work your way up from there once your tolerence builds. If you can navigate your way through that then you will love this product. Also i cant even imagine when it will run out! The price point on this product is nothing short of amazing!
  36. Life-changing!

    I bought this product about 2 weeks ago and I was noticing a difference after the first use and still continue to notice a difference. My pore size has shrunk, my acne scarring has been reducing and my skin looks fresh and plump. I actually can’t believe how well it is working.

    I did notice that I really didn’t have much tingling when mixing it with ‘The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA’ and that’s with the Hyaluronic acid and one of my other ordinary serums underneath. But when mixed with the Plant derived sqaulane and the tingling was unbearable.

    Overall this is my favourite new product!
  37. Broke me out!

    I am so disappointed with this product. I was expecting great things from it but instead I end up with really bad breakouts and congestion on my forehead.

    I used this in the morning, diluted with snail essence without niacinamide. I wait for 20-30 mins before continuing with my routine but after using this for a few months, discontinuing it, then using it again, I can safely say that this product did me more harm than good.

    It didn't brighten my skin or do any of that. Instead, I ended up with rough, raised bumps on my cheeks, around my nose and on my forehead.

    I've used Vitamin C in the past with no issues. I've also used about a quarter of the spatula provided.

    I'd be careful with this product if your skin type is dry/dehydrated, sensitive.
  38. Brightening

    I mix this with The Ordinary "Buffet" at night twice a week and it visibly evens and brightens my skin tone by next morning. It is a great boost to add to your evening regime, but I'd recommend starting with half a scoop at first - I started with a whole scoop and it was a bit stingy! But once you get the amount right you're in for a treat.
  39. It works

    Definitely seeing my skin brightening and pigmentation disappearing. I add one scoop to my moisturiser of a night.
  40. Great product at a low cost

    It can be mixed with almost anything and it’s super effective, it really has made my skin come to life over these past few months
  41. Super usable and effective

    This powder is the most affordable Vitamin C powder I've seen, and it appears to be just as effective as other. So easy to use, I just add it to my night face oil.
  42. Very effective

    A very effective brightener - just add a level scoop to your moisturiser.
    A little bit goes a long way - careful not to use a heaped scoop or it will sting.
  43. Seeing good results with time!

    My skin has acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and redness.

    My main concern is to get rid of the acne, acne like spots or scars etc. I was a bit hesitant as I am quite time poor but it’s so effective it’s worth the extra few minutes to get the combination right. I feel my skin always looks really bright the next day!!
  44. Wow!

    I bought this product out of curiosity, and I am SO glad! I’ve only been using it a week and already I can notice a difference.. I wore my make up for 24 hours the other day, and usually I would wake up with pimples and spots all over.. but I have been mixing this powder in with my moisturiser before applying any primer or make up, and I found ever after washing off all of my make up my skin was so smooth and even! I can’t believe it! It creates a solid barrier on the skin and hydrates it effectively. And for this price you really cannot go wrong!
  45. Wow!

    I’m 45 with freckles so I’m using this in the hope it evens my skin tone and reduces lines. My skin care routine with The Ordinary is morning: Marine Hyaluronics, Buffet (mixed with 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder every 2nd day), Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% (morning routine). For night I use Marine Hyaluronics, Buffet and alternate between The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane replacing these once a week with Matrixyl 10% + HA. With this routine, I’ve most definitely seen a huge difference in my skin. It’s hydrated, brighter and more evened toned. This is only after 2 months. For the price of these products, I’m amazed! My only suggestion for The Ordinary is to have more comprehensive guides as to what products to use together and simpler product names. It’s really hard to navigate all of their products and a lot of the names sound similar. That’s why I posted this routine as I find it works for me. Make sure you follow the advice and where a good sunscreen in the day as well.
  46. No brainer

    A no brainer, best Vitamin C powder I’ve used and a fantastic price. Gives your skin a nice glow!

    I was using another brand of Vitamin C powder and find The Ordinary’s version is finer and whiter.

    Doesn’t sting like some Vitamin C product. I find half a scoop works best as a full scoop is too much.
  47. Best Vit C

    I love this product! If you're new to using actives go steady on this. It might sting and itch a little until you build up tolerance but stick with it. I use a full scoop mixed with the Ordinary moisturizer nightly and have noticed a big difference over time with pigmentation. Just make sure you keep the lid closed tight and don't get the container wet because it will oxidize and go hard and lose its potency!
  48. Follow up after a Month of use

    I bought this product a month ago to combat the hyperpigmentation and redness I have from some old acne. I didn't see any huge difference in appearance the first week (though it had made it the smoothest it's ever been), now happy to report that my redness has very much diminished! I find this stings less than the spheres with HA product, cause I mix it with a mattifying moisturizer.
  49. VitC all rounder

    I love this product, not only can it be added to just about any other skincare product for an extra boost but it can be applied directly onto any blemish eradicating it almost overnight. Gives healthy colour to my complexion and an almost flawless finish.
  50. Value for Money

    Excellent value for money with this product. I bought a much more expensive one, with less in it, before the Ordinary released theirs. Super happy with this, I mix a little into my serum or moisturiser. It lasts for ages, and the light sensitive packaging ensures it doesn't degrade too swiftly. Once I get through it, I will absolutely be repurchasing.
  51. LIFESAVER

    I got slack with skincare for a while because I actually accidentally mixed too much of this into something and for chemical burnt haha so you only have to use the SMALLEST amount, but if you get it right, it works. I have super obvious dark hyperpigmentation around my mouth that makes me look like I have a bit of a mustache and this cleared it right up! I mix it into a watery toner and follow it with hyaluronic acid and a moisturiser. I find that it makes my moisturiser sticky if I mix it in with that, but a watery toner mixes so well. It really has saved my skin and I'm confident to not wear makeup again!!!
  52. A bit fiddly but worth the effort

    I bought this product after a beauty therapist recommend I purchase a vit c serum to help with post pregnancy pigmentation. I mix it with The Ordinary “Buffet” serum and it has certainly helped brighten my skin tone. Worth the effort if you are looking for an affordable Vit C serum!
  53. Vitamin C

    Love love love this stuff! I actually quite like the process of having to mix it into another product.
    I use this every second night, and mix it into my Sukin moisturiser.
    My skin looks brighter, and my complexion has really improved!
    Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after using it though! My nails went a bit orange from mixing it with my fingers, so now I just use the end of a makeup brush to mix it in the palm of my hand.
  54. A little tricky but much better than the other antioxidant solutions I've tried!!

    I have some hyperpigmentation from old acne on my cheeks and have been looking for something to help combat the redness leading up to my wedding day. I wanted something potent and that was shelf stable to add to my collection for use every other day (not for daily use) and yes, it's a bit trickier to use than a bit C serum or lotion but it's very effective! I mix it in with a basic moisturizer and put it on just before I go to bed. Just be prepared, it tingles a bit so best to sort of start with smaller doses and then step up as your skin gets used it it :)
  55. Amazing!

    I have combination skin. Not prone to break outs but have large pores! This product is amazing. First time i use it pm, i add it on my moisturiser, when i wake up i love my skin... it’s glowing, plump and smooth! I also add this on my body lotion and smoothens my skin. But be careful as it stains on clothes your wearing and on your bed. But my skin is loving it! With my pores it helps to tighten my pores but that is after finishing one bottle. Im on my 3rd bottle. Will definitely buy again as long as it’s available!
  56. Nice product

    Wasn't sure if I'd like thus but I'm impressed so far.
  57. Great buy

    I love this, it’s very good. I can see results unlike other, more expensive products from other brands. You need only a tiny little bit so it will last for ever, too. Very happy. Will repurchase.
  58. Strong vit c

    This vitamin c powder is definitely the strongest vitamin c powder I’ve used. I always get a little sting after applying it (my skin is dry and can be a little sensitive at times) but with prolonged use and mixing it with the right serums I’m certain that I’ll have amazing results and glowing radiant skin.
  59. Most cost effective

    The ordinary is the most affordable price among the same type of products with the highest concentration, My skin type is the combination.I apply this powder on the body with a mixture of body cream.The effects is obvious. I recommend all my friends to have a try.
  60. Affordable substitute for more expensive Vit C powders

    I have been using philosophy's Vit C powder and was pleasantly surprised to see that The Ordinary had a similar product.
    I'm pleased with The Ordinary's Ascorbic Acid powder as it has been just as good so far, and is so much cheaper.
    My only gripe is the packaging. The container's mouth is too wide and causes the powder to fly about especially when opening the jar. I'm also concerned about easy contamination because of the wide opening.
  61. Great

    Great product, fantastic price. It did take about 10 days for my skin to get use to it. I would recommend you only use 1/4 scoop of the little spoon it is very stong.
  62. Surprisingly my fav vit c from the ordinary...

    I have used numerous vit c products from The Ordinary, including: the original vitamin c suspension, Ascorbyl Glucoside and the Tetraisopalmitate Solution. This I have to say is my favourite. I've had the best results, no sensitivity to it(and I have generally sensitive skin) and the product amount/cost is crazy cheap. If I use it before makeup I do need to let it soak in for 20mins or so, but that would really be the only annoyance, which in the scheme of things is minor, I just skip it if I'm in a rush haha. But its definitely a 5 star product for results <-> price/value!
  63. Does not live up to the hype.

    I have heard exceptional things about this item and unfortunately it has not done anything for my skin. I bought this product to help lighten my acne scars, but after using it for a month, there were still no results. Another downside to this product is the packaging, it just gets really messy. If you are tossing up between this and a serum, definitely skip on this product,
  64. On the fence

    I’m not sure how I feel about this product. I feel as though my skin breaks out a day or two after using it each time. I will continue until it finishes as I know the importance of vitamin c topically on the skin.
  65. Good if you have time

    Slightly messy and inconvenient but it does help protect your skin and give it a healthy glow.
  66. It's not the product's fault...

    I would like to rate it 5 starts but it is ALWAYS out of stock. Last time I received the notification but I was still too late to order, and it became out of stock again in the second day. You can tell how popular is this Acid Powder.
  67. Works

    It does seem to brighten my skin and is really the most affordable vitamin c available. Its a bit annoying needing to mix the products in the morning, but at least the vitamin c is fresh. Would have preferred a smaller scoop though, since Adore recommends a rice grain amount while the girls in the store recommended 1/4 scoop. If that's the measurements then why give me such a big spoon to complicate my life?!
  68. the product was great and i did see results!

    I mixed this product with my everyday moisturiser and started to see results after a couple of weeks. My skin is feeling great and i would definitely recommend.
  69. Holy grail

    I have been using this product for 2 months now, i mixed it with "Buffet" serum from the same brand.
    When i first applied it, i can immidiately feel the tightening effect on my face :)
  70. Bang for your buck

    Purchased this not being sure if I needed it. Comes in pot with a cute mini scooper inside to collect the powder. I mix this into either my other serums or moisturiser and can see my skin visibly glowing the next day! Just be careful with how much you scoop at first, I only use 1/4 of the spoon so far or else it can cause irritation.
  71. Easy to incorporate

    Love this.I use this in the morning before I apply sunscreen to protect my face from free radicals during the day. Patch test this before applying all over your face - I used a whole scoop the first time and the stinging was too much for me. I now use half a scoop mixed with Marula oil in the morning and then apply a tinted sunscreen over the top. It hardly adds any extra time onto my morning routine.
  72. I like it!

    I thought I’d hate this as a time poor mum but it’s so effective it’s worth the extra few minutes to get the combination right. My skin looks really bright the next day and with continued use I think it will be really effective! I also haven’t had any issues with reactions or burning
  73. Use wisely

    My skin has acne, acne scars, dryness, eczema, spots, peeling around the eyes.

    My main concern is to get rid of the acne, acne like spots or scars etc.

    It has to be mixed very well or very dilutely mixed. I started having rashes or peeling of the skin on my cheekbones due to how strong and potent it is I have stopped using it for a few months. Might start using it later again once I finish all my other The Ordinary products.
  74. Perfect L-Ascorbic Acid Must Have!

    I’ve tried lots of Vitamin C products, paid a fortune only to see the liquid turn yellow to orange too fast. This is 100% L-AA ( Vitamin C) in powder form so it is stable, so finely milled to mix with whatever you like then apply to a dry face. Instant brightening and a powerful antioxidant that you can mix with The Ordinary’s Resveratrol & Ferulic as an extra powerhouse! I also mix it with Toners like Aloe for soothing or Green Tea Toner for added antioxidant strength. This is THE best Vitamin C (100% L-AA) product I’ve used and it’s fun too! Get your Glow On.
  75. The Best Vitamin C Powder

    I have tried a few vitamin c powders and found them too gritty. This one is very fine, so it goes on almost smooth when mixed in with your serum of choice. Slight tingle sensation when applied. Don’t use too much powder or you’ll burn your skin! The product will last you forever.
  76. Great value and results

    I was quite hesitant to purchase this, I thought mixing the powder into cream seemed like too much hassle and could potentially end up with a huge mess. Since my normal product sold out, I gave this a try. The mixing is actually quite easy once you get used to the routine.

    The hyperpigmentation has noticeably lightened up, the skin is much brighter and looks much healthier.

    Only a tiny amount of powder is needed each time. Very good value as this jar will last a long time.
  77. Great booster for body treatment

    I struggle to find potent body moisturisers, because most have added fragrance which my skin doesn’t tolerate well. I bought this tub to use with Regular Vaseline body moisturiser and it’s brilliant for my legs and arms. I was sceptical at first, but one of the small scoops mixes remarkably well, and after a couple of weeks my skin is looking brighter. Will continue to use this in the lead up to summer so I have glowing legs - finally a cheap and effective way to add some antioxidant power to my body treatment!
  78. Waiting for availability

    After ordering, I was notified that there was no stock, so I’m yet to try this! I have combination skin, and love the thought of mixing a fresh Vit C type concoction each time to avoid oxidation. The lovely consultant arranged a different The Ordinary product, but I look forward to ordering this when I can.
  79. Affordable & Effective

    Affordable & effective skin care product. It made a noticeable different to my complexion!
  80. Easy to use and evens up skin tone

    My skin is dry and flakey resulting in me having quite an uneven skin tone. I started using this as recommended by a friend and love how easy it is to use (you can mix it with water or your moisturiser). I have noticed a much clearer complexion since i started using this, however it doesnt say specifically how much to use, so I think i used a little too much at the beginning and it made my skin sting. However after trying smaller amounts it just leaves your skin tingling, but not stinging!
  81. Good but don't overuse it

    I've heard mixed reviews about this powder. I'm in my early 30 with sensitive skin. My skin has brightened after the first use with around 1 scoop of the powder but with some tingling sensation. I realised the amount might be a bit too much so I decided to reduce it to half a scoop the following days. The tingling sensation was still there and I decided to apply it in alternate days. Everything goes well after that. This is definitely a good value product. Just remember to start with a small amount and see how your skin reacts.
  82. Never knew I needed this

    I was recommended this just 2 months ago and I have not been able to stop using this since! It visibly brightens, and gives a tingling feeling if there are areas where my skin feels a little bit dry. Great for Vit-C effects!
  83. very nice

    their best vit c product. i mix with niacinamide and apply before layering oils etc on top. so cheap too.
  84. Much better than the suspension!

    This is great, it is much better than the vitamin C suspensions and amazing for even the oiliest of skins, it absorbs very easily into any product that you mix it in and after you apply it it doesnt sting or leave any sort of residue or oiliness and doesnt change the finish of the product you mixed it in, and I immediately noticed the very large pores on my nose shrunk and became very small, when i woke the next day my skin didnt look hugely different but appeared brighter than before definitely.
  85. better than expected

    Great product .very affordable and very effective.i have sensitive skin but this gave me no problems and it has faded sun spots on hands and my skin has more clarity and smoothness now im onto my second tub and ill keep buying it.
  86. I love this product.

    I love this product. I received it along with TO's Buffet as a birthday present a few months ago.
    I'm 63, a redhead with fair skin, and I use about half the tiny spoon of Ascorbic Acid Powder, once a day in the evening mixed with two drops of TO’s Buffet, spread over my face. The tingling sensation can be a little uncomfortable if I inadvertently use too much, so I keep to about half a spoonful.
    I’m especially happy with the price. I’ve read how great Vitamin C is for the skin but most other Vitamin-C products I’ve seen are considerably more expensive than this - this product is definitely good value.
    I believe the skin around my eyes especially is benefiting from the combined use of TO’s Buffet and 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder.
  87. Love this!

    The Ordinary never fails to impress. I decided ro try this powder and it really is great for your skin. It reduces pores and gives it an even tone. I use it during the day with a serum. I just can’t rave enough about The Ordinary for skin care! Another winner!
  88. Smoothest Skin

    I’m 38 and have large pores, and uneven rough skin with a small amount of sun damage. I’m new to the whole additives thing. This stuff is aaaaamazing! I use it at night mixed in with my moisturiser. After a few days my skin was as smooth as a babies butt! Your skin feels dry after application. But when I wash my face and moisturise in the morning (without the powder applied) my skin feels amazingly dewy and fresh. The skin around my under eyes has always been thicker and bumpy and after two weeks it smoothed out. I’m hoping it will have some effect on my sun spots, but regardless I am definitely going to continue using this product. As a note, wash your hands after applying this as it turns your skin orange (like fake tan). This is normal when vitamin C oxidises. So don’t freak out (my face is not orange btw!!)
  89. Great bargain

    For the price, this product does what most other vitamin c serums do exactly the same. I've tried $80 dollar serums and they all expire within 2-3 months.. This powder is perfect and definitely does brighten. It does sting so start of with a small amount :)
  90. Great product.

    I add about a half scoop to my serum each morning and although it had a slight tingling when applied this went away quickly. Have been using for about a month now and I feel my skin has brightened and have less breakouts. Love this product.
  91. Found this ineffective. Not a great form of absorbtive vit.c

    Yeah, this is just like crushing a vit c supplement to add to your other products. Thoroughly ineffective. Some forms, like this form of ascorbic acid, seem to be only effective when taken internally. Didn't brighten, or exfoliate any more than any powder would when mixed with fluid and applied to the face...
  92. Be careful to use only small amounts

    I had been using The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% as an intro to Vit C products as I have sensitive skin and after using for a few months with good results and no adverse reactions I thought I'd try a higher potency Vit C product.

    Without reading any reviews I went ahead and used one scoop of this with my Sukin day moisturiser and it tingled quite a lot and lightly burned parts of my skin (a few small red patches on my left cheek which peeled off and recovered within a week).

    After my skin recovered, I tried again with half a scoop and The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA in the evening and this time it still tingled (I never felt anything with the Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) but only slightly and my skin was noticeably smoother in the morning. I use it a couple of times a week now.

    I am quite happy with this product but you definitely be cautious when starting out with it especially if you have sensitive skin!
  93. Superfood for your skin

    I was a little hesitant about introducing this into my skincare routine. I am die hard fan niacinamide so I was worried about both of them being on my skin.
    I did my research and did what they told me not me not to! I mixed niacinamide and the Vitamin C powder together and let me you....WOW!
    There are fears that niacinamide mixed with Vitamin C can cause Niacin which may be detrimental to your skin however recent studies actually confirm that these two products only react at certain very high temperatures. So mixing them at normal room temperature is ok. There is a little sting so i recommend half a scoop to 4 drops niacinamide at first. It brightens, fades pigmentation and leaves your skin smooth.
  94. Great Things Come in Small Packages.

    This product gives you the opportunity to get a great skin brightener at an economical price - Comes with a little measuring spoon.

    I mix a small amount with my serum - already in a couple of weeks I can notice the difference in my skin - So much brighter!

    Try it you won;t regret it!
  95. Great Product

    Compared to other vitamin c powders, this one is my favorite. It is finely milled and easy to mix into other products. It comes with a small scoop to measure how much you need.

    It can make your skin tingle if you use too much. Overall, this a fab product which makes it easy to bring vit c into your skin care routine and has helped me keep an even, clear complexion.
  96. Strong but good!

    I'm so happy with this vit c powder! I've been looking for something that is strong, stable and cheap, and this ticks all the boxes. It's good to use - I mix it in with some Buffet serum or facial oil and it disappears into creamy smooth nothingness. No gritty texture. For the record I have fairly sensitive skin and did find that a full scoop is too much for me at the moment - it burns - but a smaller amount is perfect. I think I've found my affordable + effective vit c holy grail.
  97. not good for young skin

    I bought this powder to help my skin brighten and it slightly did however this powder is very very active and I ended up having a reaction to it when I would eat acidic food around my mouth and I would end up with a rash and and burnt like skin around my mouth hours after when i would eat. My sister tried it and even she had the same reaction, we are both quite young so this product would most likely benefit someone with more aged skin.
  98. Most versatile Vit C ever!

    I absolutely LOVE this! I've had it for only 3 or weeks and just had my 2nd tub arrive. I have to point out I bought the 2nd for my 19 yr old due to how much I love mine, I use mine almost daily and I've barely made a dent in it...it really goes a long way.

    I add a little to TO's Caffeine + EGCG serum every night as it makes it a bit sticky for a while but definitely helps. As I started using Alpha-H's Liquid Gold a few weeks ago then I apply the serum first and simply make sure to use the Liquid Gold only to the edge of where the stickiness starts, it makes the LG easier to apply and both dry at about the same time.
    I also use it with TO's Argireline and as of today then I use a full scoop when applying Matrixyl all over my face and upper chest.

    Even though I've been changing many serums over and using TO's, I still have my cult faves in Korean/Asian Beauty and this has been brilliant in my favourite mask combo.
    I love SkinFood's Black Sugar masks and as they need liquid when applying, I've been using the Hatomugi Skin Conditioner. Now when I usually add some drops of the conditioner before mixing the mask, I add 2 scoops of L-Ascorbic Acid first and simply blend it as usual before applying.
    It adds a huge boost to the mask as I apply it right down to my upper chest due to sun damage and there's a really noticeable difference where the redness has started to tone down.

    Will definitely be buying this one again!
  99. Great booster!

    The packaging leaves a little bit to be desired - there's a little scoop for the powder, but it can get messy! other than that, this is a great supplement to a nightly routine - you just mix it with your serums, and it leaves your skin feeling brighter and softer.
  100. Crazy weird, but great stuff

    I was very reluctant to use this at first and wondered why I'd bought it. I heard reviews that it stings and was worried about my skin breaking out or turning red. I put my fears aside and tried the tiniest amount and didn't really have any reaction or notice anything. Now I add 1/2 a spoonful with my argan oil and it stings a bit (especially if your skin is broken), but I felt it gave a bit of a glow. It seemed to even out the skin tone and give it a glow (could also be the argan oil too). I've tried this with another moisturiser and it didn't seem to have the same effect. I've ordered marula oil, which I will try it with.
