Love this

Hannah

This product in the powder form is great if you don't want to add more liquid onto your skin (if it's say- oily like mine)

Just be careful when you measure it that you don't breathe too close and inhale it. it is very fine.

Great results, gentle tingle. I use at bedtime so it have plenty of time to absorb and work it's magic. remember your skin will be a little sensitive with it in sunlight so do use a sunscreen

  2. Excellent value, high potency Vitamin C

    Christie

    I love that I can mix this product with my normal moisturiser for a boost in vitamin c. A little goes a long way so by far my favorite Vitamin C product on the market!
  3. Great product, great price

    Carla

    I have been using this product since it came out and it’s wonderful. It’s not only very affordable but it lasts and you can mix it with a variety of other skin products. I definitely recommend it
  4. Awesome

    judy

    i use it with my moisturiser at night and i wake up with a radiant clear complexion rather than oily and acne everywhere, highly recommend
  5. So cheap and lasts forever

    Bronwyn

    This is a great way to add vit c to your skin care routine. It turns an ordinary moisturiser into a treatment by just adding a little scoop.
  6. Amazing

    Alice

    This is the best vitamin c for my skin. I has helped with so many issues - pigmentation, complexion, brightness, health of my skin, etc. Will buy again
  7. Love Love Love!

    Gem

    I use this product every second morning with a serum and it really helps brighten my complexion during the winter months! I made the mistake of using a bit too much initially (I was new to the vitamin C game) and it stung quite a bit, but after reducing it to a small amount it works like a charm!
  8. Loving it

    Nicole

    I love vitamin C to brighten and hydrate my skin, I apply the serum I make using the L-ascorbic Acid Powder mornings and nights and my skin is soft, bright and well hydrated. Will purchase again.
  9. Love it!

    Sam

    I have pigmentation on my face, and this product used twice a week has really helped. I started off using the suspension product, but now I have introduced this one into the routine too. It does tingle and you might feel like that’s unusual, however I love that feeling as I can feel it penetrating my skin and doing its job.
    For someone who suffers from dark spots or pigmentation, I highly recommend using this and the Vit C products from TO.
  10. Great price

    Kylie

    Great price for a vitamin c powder if you want to mix your own treatments. Just be careful and read up on how much to use. You only need the tiniest amount
  11. Not so impressed

    Khim

    I've read so many reviews about how much people loved this and how easy it was to mix it into other products. But for me I haven't noticed much of a difference with my skin and I hate the grainy residue it leaves on my face. It could be the products I'm mixing it into or how much I'm using but it just never seemed to dissolved completely.
  12. Effective delivery of Vit C

    Lizzy

    I think this is the best way to ensure Vitamin C doesn't get oxidised by delivering it in a powder form. I have been using this for more than 6 months. I mix a teaspoon (a mini spoon comes with the product).with hyalouronic acid or mosturiser after washing my face in the morning. I do think that my skin is radiant and glowing from using this. Highly recommended!
  13. DIY skincare!

    Kerrie

    Vitamin C isn't very stable when it's in contact with air or light. This product avoids this by activating only the amount you need which is genius! I feel it isn't as effective as I hope which could be the company having to sacrifice quality to make it in powder form.
  14. Big Results for a Small Price

    MarleyMae

    Love this Vitamin C powder!
    I have used the same product in Skinstitut & other brands & found that they always irritated my skin & flared up my rosacea.
    This one is great, it is effective yet gentle.
    Has approved & reduced some of my acne scarring, makes my skin look more clarified & even toned & is even helping to reduce my pore size! BONUS!
    The only thing I would suggest is to make sure you use just a small amount - about one quarter to half a scoop & mix it into your serum or moisturiser really well so you can't see the powder anymore before you apply to your face.
    My favourite to mix it with is TO's Buffet + HA serum.
    In the mornings I follow this mixture with my BB cream & other makeup products & in the evening I simply follow this up with TO Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA.
    I went a few months without using & have just recevied it again recently & I am already noticing a big improvement in my skin!
  15. Really good

    Lauren

    I have been mixing this product with Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel every morning and have noticed changes to my skin within a week. I have mild acne scarring on my cheeks and this has appeared to improve. My skin also looks more luminous. Really happy and would recommend.
  16. good for brightening

    Abbie

    Helped to even out my skin tone and make my face look brighter and less dull. It is annoying that it comes in a powder form and it can be a bit messy but the results are worth it.
  17. Absolutely love

    katelyn

    This product is amazing as you can mix it with almost anything! It has made my acne scars less visible and improved my overall complexion in just weeks.
  18. Useful product

    Ros

    This is such an interesting and useful product! I like to mix it in with The Ordinary’s Buffet Serum and spread it on my face and décolletage, but it can be mixed with your Moisturiser or any other Serum. I also mix it in with my hand cream at night. Start off with a very tiny amount though, as using too much can really sting your face and neck. I don’t know how evenly the vitamin C powder is distributed through the Serum when you mix it in, but I guess if you use it regularly, over a few days your entire face would eventually receive some vitamin C.
  19. Makes my skin feel smoother

    Emma

    Seems to make my skin feel a lot smoother. Hasnt done much for the tone of my skin though. Jar lasts a long time.
  20. Great for acne scars

    Tala

    Bought this for my daughter to use on her mild acne scars with low expectations to be honest. I mixed a small amount in water and applied it to her skin not expecting anything to happen. It immediately brightened her complexion and her scars are fading with daily use. Pretty amazing for how cheap this product is. She has had no negative reaction to it at all, no burning or stinging etc. Definitely worth a try and will be buying again.
  21. Yessss

    AJK

    This is so good. Makes my skin smoother and glowy after one use. Haven't seen a huge reduction in my red acne scarring however i'm very pale so i don't know if anything will help that.
  22. Yes Yes Yes

    Y29

    OMG why did I wait so long to purchase? After using this product (every other week for a full week) I always find my skin brighter the next day, my acne scarring has lightened tremendously fast - I have been using it in conjunction with another of their products the Azelaic Acid and it has been a dream combo. Vitamin C in powder form is great as you know it’s always fresh, but this does have an expiry date of 6 months - still very affordable though.
  23. Amazing

    Alice

    I use this product when my skin gets dull and needs some extra glow and radiance. Super affordable as well
  24. the product is good but maybe can improve on the package?

    Helena

    Ok I have used the similar vitamin C powder from other brand to mix with your lotion and serum so bought this to give it a go. I loved the price. It found the jar is a bit hard to use. No spoon or spatula in it. You need to be careful when dispensing. I mixed with the Ordinary serum or moisturizer at night. Maybe not good to be used in AM under makeup but it is up to you. Hope this will help lighten my pigmentations.
  25. Love it

    Lisa

    I have combination/acne prone skin. This powder brightened my complexion and even out my skin tone. I always use it in the morning with my moisturiser. Definitely repurchase.
  26. Noticeable results for a $10 product!

    Alex

    Although it does oxidise pretty fast, the results are worth it! I love mixing this with my serum at night and it has noticeably brightened my complexion. I’m also noticing an improvement in texture.
