Most Helpful Positive

Very strong, be wary.

Neysa ilayne

I think this would be perfect for people with not sensitive skin as why I've given 5 stars.
However my skin is just to sensitive and this makes it worse.

Most Helpful Criticism

Didn't notice any difference

Chris

I used this product for a while but didn't notice any difference. I combined this with ferulic acid solution from Ordinary.
  1. Very affordable

    Jules

    I have gone through quite a few jars now because it's easy to use and it works.I mix it with moisturizer.
  2. Great value

    Michelle

    This is very good value vitamin c that is finely milled and can be added to serums or moisturisers! A little goes a long way, only downside is it can get messy
  3. Good but powerful

    Amy

    This product is great, yet be wary on what products you mix the powder with. I find if I mix it with a strong serum, my skin feels burning!
    It is strong but can see some brightness when mixed with the right product.
    Can be messy when mixing powder.
  4. Powder not for me

    Sophie

    Good product and results, powder just isn’t for me!
  5. Fabulous!

    Imogen

    This is the first powder vitamin c product I have used and have really enjoyed it! Very finely milled powder than can be mixed with moisturisers, oils and serums. Personally I think it mixes better with a serum, however I also mix this with Weleda skin food and have no issues with it dissolving. Some say they have experienced grittiness; they recommend using only a rice grain amount and if you mix well this will not happen at all. Price is great and you get tonnes of product. The packaging is a bit fiddly but you get used to it. Definitely noticed a big difference in my skin. Definitely brighter!

    However my skin is just to sensitive and this makes it worse.
  7. If you want it STRONG

    Rae

    I like you can adjust the level of Vit C just by using more or less powder. Vit C degrades really quickly in solution so this is perfect if you need a strong stable and cheap option. Great to mix with HA. Make sure you understand how it interacts with other products. Better to use at night. Really tingly.
  8. Excellent

    Anne

    I've been using many TO products for about a year now but have been avoiding this one because it looked like too much hassle. I couldn't have been more wrong! I've been adding half a scoop to my nighttime routine and it's really brightened my skin by morning. It's faded my substantial scarring caused by surgeries to remove skin cancer too. My freckles and 'age spots' have also noticeably reduced. It's really effective! I can't believe I waited so long to purchase this - it's effective and excellent value for money. Love it!
  9. The Ordinary

    Karina

    I have loved using this product! I was very careful to use it sparingly at the beginning so not to get a reaction or cause irritation. My skin tingles in a good way after I apply it. There has never been any discomfort. I mix it with TO moisturiser in the mornings twice a week. My skin looks clearer and feels softer since I started using it. I will definitely be repurchasing.
  10. I love this

    Hiba

    I love this powder. I can feel it working on my skin and have been using consistently for over 3 months. It last a really long time and use it with a serum rather than a moisturiser
  11. Great price and even greater product

    Vicky

    Been using this to help fade blemishes and acne scars. I mentioned I had been using it to my dermatologist and he approved of its use. Super cheap price for a lot of product. Been using it for a few months now and I'm not even halfway through the container. It doesn't dry out my skin and can be mixed in with a lot of different products. I love it in the powder form. Much more versatile and stable formula. Traditional serum formulas age and expire so quickly that they turn deep orange within a few weeks. This powder form lasts much longer and I have not noticed any drop in its effectiveness. Will definitely buy this again
  12. loving it so far

    Tiffany

    Am loving it so far- it does tingle on application but i didnt find it grainy and my skin didnt react badly. I use it everyday now. The application is a bit annoying (with the spoon) and there isnt an actual guide as to how much to use, but i started small and worked my way up to a bit more.
  13. Didn't notice any difference

    Chris

    I used this product for a while but didn't notice any difference. I combined this with ferulic acid solution from Ordinary.
  14. Good vitamin c

    Hifza

    A very easy way to introduce in vitamin C into your routine. I like to use it in my moisturiser to give me a glow.
  15. Versatile

    Iyanna

    I was a bit unsure about trying this, as it seemed like a bit of an effort, but it's actually fine. It turns out I like the versatility of the powder form, because I can mix it with different products, depending on my routine that morning or night. Works well mixed with a moisturising serum like HA, with a cream moisturiser, or an oil (I've started mixing it with the Resveratrol for a vitamin cocktail). Using it for its brightening and anti ageing properties. Haven't been using it long, but seems effective so far.

    A couple of things to note:
    Can be a bit gritty if you use too much
    Don't use directly with Niacinamide as they deactivate each other
    Make sure you use SPF when using vitamin C in your routine
  16. First time user

    Gemma

    Have just received my first big order of the ordinary products. Very excited.
    So far have found this product amazing and very easy to use. Love the little spoon.
  17. great scar reduction

    Caity

    I found thisi really helped minimsed my acne scars
  18. Love this product!!

    Bianca

    This is one of the best vit c products ive used. You definitely feel a tingle when applying the product, also tightness. It did take a few weeks for my skin to get used to it do new users go easy at the start! It definitely has brightened my skin. I only use it at night. I generally mix with The Ordinary's moisturiser or with their retinoid serum.
    Be wary if you have eczema or similar conditions as this can irritate the skin further.
    Probably my favourite product of theirs!
  19. Great format, actual results, doesn't oxidise

    Alexandra

    I have noticed a significant lessening in redness on my cheeks and decollete with daily use of this product. I switched to a different Vit C product (Ausceuticals 20%) for two months and noticed my redness returned with a vengeance, so I switched back to this product 2 months ago and the redness is back under control. Additionally, I have also used TO's 23% Vit C Suspension in the past; that product didn't give me anything like the results I get with this one.

    The problem with the vast majority of vitamin C products is oxidisation. However, this product doesn't suffer nearly as much from oxidisation because it's a dry form, not a liquid form; it takes significantly longer for this form to oxidise than a form that has already been mixed into a liquid.

    You only need a small amount at a time, so the product lasts a long time (I use half a scoop a day and have been using the same jar for 7-8 months total). The product is therefore very cost effective versus other popular vitamin C products. I mix that half-scoop with 4 drops of TO's Ferulic Acid + Resveratrol, and a blob of TO's NMF+HA, each morning, followed by sunscreen & makeup. I don't have the tingly/stinging reaction from this product that I get from TO's 23% Vitamin C Suspension, and the product mix I do is very cosmetically elegant (again, versus TO's 23% Vit C Suspension, which is pretty impossible to wear under makeup).

    The provided scoop is convenient, but it would be great if the packaging integrated some sort of hygienic spot to store the scoop; as it is, I keep both the jar and the scoop in the original box.
  20. Sticky, but effective

    romamar

    I have been using this with other The Ordinary serums, and I can attest that this will definitely make your skin GLOW! That said, no matter what I mix it with, my skin becomes sticky for an hour(ish). If you can cope with that, I would 100% recommend this!
  21. Would recommend!

    Laura

    I love mixing this in with my daily moisturiser. I like that I can put in however much I need. It leaves a tingly sensation when applying, but I have found that it evens out the texture on my face.
  22. Love!

    LJ

    So affordable and easy to use, very potent and gives your skin a light tingling feeling. Powder form keeps the vitamin C stable and this little jar will last me a long time. This one of the best skincare purchases I’ve made
  23. works best 2 x per week in daytime

    Candice

    mixes with any product. It works so well to brighten and clear the skin.

    I have pale skins and some freckles and tend to rosacea so works great for me.

    If you use it more than every 3rd day it may, as it did for me, cause small bumps, irritation or breakout.
  24. hello glow

    kat_84

    Been adding this to my morning skincare routine for the last 6 months; mixed into a very basic moisturiser.
    It stings on appliation, but the tone and texture of my skin has really improved. Most noticeably, the dark circles under my eyes has faded dramatically.
  25. could do with better instructions

    Renee

    I do enjoy this product but found the instruction to mix a "small amount" with other treatments to be vague.
    I found out from another source that my "small amount" was much more than what I was meant to be using, and that I should be using no more than a rice grain.
    My skin has been better since using reducing the usage to a REALLY TINY amount with my day and night cream.
  26. Great but fiddly.

    L

    This product really works and I do genuinely love it, but with two caveats: 1) it’s fiddly to use, so I don’t use it as often as I would like and 2) it is quite a harsh product and will stain hands orange!
  27. 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
  28. 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!
  29. 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
  30. 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
  31. 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.
  32. 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
  33. 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!
  34. 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.
  35. 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.
  36. 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
  37. 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.
  38. 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!
  39. 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.
  40. 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!
  41. 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.
  42. 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.
  43. 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.
  44. 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.
  45. 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.
  46. 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.
  47. 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.
  48. 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.
  49. Amazing

    Alice

    I use this product when my skin gets dull and needs some extra glow and radiance. Super affordable as well
  50. 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.
  51. 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.
  52. 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.
  53. AMAZING

    Crystal

    This product is a must have!! you receive a cute little scoop and the tingling feeling is minimal. I use it daily (about a quarter of a scoop each use and I mix it in the palm of my hand) as it helps shrink the appearance of my pores and with uneven skin tone.
    I have used at night with copper peptide however I mostly use in the mornings with an emu oil/vitamin e cream. I will never not buy this product and would recommend to anyone.
  54. Love this product

    Kirsten

    Great price, great product - comes with a tiny little spoon to make application easy.
    I mix it with some cold pressed argan oil from the same company as part of my morning routine (I use organ oil as I figure the high vitamin E content will help keep the ascorbic acid stable for longer). I apply to a clean face, let it work for an hour and then top with Essano rosehip oil spf 15. You can really feel the ascorbic acid tingle as it goes to work - it is far more effective than any serum I have bought at a much higher price. My skin is brighter, tone is evening out and my smaller wrinkles are starting to disappear after only a week. I have dry/mature skin with some sun damage.
  55. Active c

    Natt

    This is my 2nd bottle. I mixed it with facial cleanser everyday or sometime mixed with face cream. It helps with my uneven skin tone. I also noticed that my face look brighter.
  56. So easy for fab results

    Jasmine

    I mix this with either a basic moisturiser or a nice hydrating serum and the results are For. Real. Can be grainy under makeup so I prefer to use on non makeup days or at night.
  57. AMAZING!

    Maggie

    I wanted to incorporate vitamin C into my routine, but the Vitamin C suspension 23% + HA spheres 2% would form a film on my face that blocked my pores a bit. I bought this product instead and it's amazing! The powder is very finely milled and mixes perfectly with oils and serums. It causes very mild tingling on the face, but don't burn. I mix this with the Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% to make a (somewhat) dupe for the 'Skinceuticals C E' serum.
  58. Works really well

    Isobel

    I love the ordinary. This makes my skin more even, smooth, toned, and soft! An amazing product for the price and lasted a fair while considering the size of the bottle!
  59. Great for night time

    amy

    This powder feels nice and tingly and leaves my skin feeling glowy in the morning. I mix it with my night time moisturiser. I tried to use it with serum during the day but I find it always leaves a little of bit of grit so I stick to using it at night.
  60. great product!

    Sarah

    ive been using this product for about a week now, i have noticed my skin is alot more hydrated and glowy. i mix a full scoop into my night cream each night. really good product for only $10!!
  61. Very effective

    Fiona

    This mixes great with my moisturizer (unless I add too much, then I end up with white streaks on my face). It makes my face tingle, but in a good way. I really think it brightens my skin. My one complaint would be that the screw top of the one I got is really difficult to get back on - it keeps getting stuck and I'm worried someday I'm going to end up with white powder all over the room!
  62. Didn’t work for me

    Jol

    Bad packaging as it oxydises quickly. Burned the crap out of my skin and I usually don’t have issues with vitamin c. Didn’t notice an improvement. But it is really cheap so that’s a plus!
  63. Great

    Y

    Amazing
    in addition to exploring, when you add it to the creams it becomes of a more dense and velvety consistency
  64. Works perfectly

    Becks

    I mix this in with The Ordinary Matrixyl and my skin loves it. I only use about half a scoop as more than that tends to give me some pilling, when I apply anything else over the top. You cannot go wrong with the price!
  65. Great size and works!

    Sophie

    I bought this to try on my freckles and it is so good. I mix it with a retinol cream in the evenings. The packaging keeps the powder in, it is mess-free and a great price for a good quality powder. Would recommend!
  66. Love

    Debbie

    I use this vitamin C powder with The Ordinary Buffet Serum at Night & then Ordinary Moisture HA Cream. I’m 60 & have great skin but it’s even brighter, tighter doing this regime. Love it Love The Ordinary.
  67. love!

    Lisa

    I use this daily with the philosophy ultimate miracle worker moisturiser and omg! I won't use another brand of vitamin c after using this.
  68. Made me break out!

    Suzannah

    My skin is usually pretty good, thanks to the Buffet and Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2%, but this made me break out in the worst blind pimples and bumps all over my chin, around my nose and on my forehead. Still trying to get rid of them since stopping using it over a week ago :’(
  69. Great

    Abbey

    I add this to my sunscreen to give a little extra glow, overall a great product and price but I did find the powder frustrating to use so its probably not for me.
  70. Love

    Carolyn

    This is the best - love the fact you can mix with serum or any complementary product. Brightens my skin. Lasts a long time and the price is very reasonable.
  71. Good

    Olivia

    Have been using this product for around a week. At first I found it difficult to work out what to mix it with as ALL my serums contained Niacinamide, which this can't be mixed with. I've ended up simply mixing it with water and applying it that way, which seems to work also. I don't personally find having to mix it every night annoying, as it only takes 20 seconds or so, especially when you consider that it has the benefit of being less prone to breaking down and becoming useless as liquid vitamin C is. Overall I haven't seen too much of a difference in my skin, however it's only been a week, so I'm looking forward to the results. This also hasn't caused my skin any problems, which is good as I have very sensitive skin.
  72. Great product for vitamin c addition in your skin care

    V

    Out of all the vitamin c skin care I’ve used this is the best due to it’s versatility. I use half a scoop mixed with my usual moisturiser once or twice a week.
  73. Great

    @makeupbyneesha_x

    I use this a few times a week at night. It's a super gentle AHA that really brightens your skin.
  74. Vitamin C powder worth a try

    Stephanie

    This is a nicely milled fine vitamin C powder which I mix in with one of the Ordinary moisturizers. It is not an everyday product for me, as the scooping of powder using the little spoon and mixing it into a moisturizer takes some time, although the results are great and my skin feels glowy after use. Definitely worth a go if you are not in a rush in the morning. I would recommend this product, however for ease of use, I usually stick with liquid forms of Vitamin C.
  75. Great addition to your beauty arsenal

    Melanie

    I love this product. I use half a scoop at night mixed with 3 drops of the Resveratol and Ferulic Acid and my skin is glowing. I've had no breakouts or sensitivity with it which my skin is normally prone to. I highly recommend this.
  76. Very effective

    Jacqui

    This is my favourite Vitamin C product to date. Really tingles when it's going on so I know it's working! Incredibly finely milled powder, I usually mix it in with my Buffet serum and it goes on well. Occasionally leaves white powdery residue if I've used a lot but melts in as soon as I add a second serum or moisturiser over the top. Little tub lasts for months. I've definitely noticed less pigmentation on my cheeks. I got this for my sister who has very combination skin and within 2 weeks she was getting lots of compliments about being glowy.
  77. Incredible

    Charlotte

    Incredible product that truly works. After about a week of use my skin was absolutely glowing and pigmentation definitely reduced! Amazing product that actually works and such a great price
  78. Pleased with the results

    Katie

    Pleased with the results but it is a bit annoying to use because of the mixing factor and trying to figure out what to mix it with. But it does make my skin very soft. Only a mild tingling sensation too.
  79. i love this stuff

    Stephanie

    i mix this into any moisturiser or serum, does get ball up (not sure if its the amount i use) if you use too much so i just stick to using it at night, usually mix into my ordinary hylauronic acid 2% & b5 serum or buffet serum. noticed a differenced within 2 weeks of using that my pigmentation on cheeks was disappearing and my skin was glowing and more even. everyone needs this!!
  80. It works...

    Ev

    It makes my skin look visibly brighter, but it stings a bit upon application especially if you exfoliate before you put this on...
  81. OMG Best Vitamin C Powder

    casey

    Wow. I have used VERY expensive vitamin c serums, lotions, you name it. I've used everything from serums with "evidence" amount of Vitamin C to lotions with 20% vitamin c in it and NOTHING compares to this powder from the ordinary. Wow. It transforms ANY of your other serums into powerhouse serums.

    I mix this with either The Ordinary rose oil or resveratrol or hyaluronic + b5. My skin is so soft and glowing. Fine lines gone. So obsessed.

  82. Cost effective and great

    AestheticInvestor

    Switched from skinstituts version. It's not as finally milled. However half the price. Use with TO ferulic reservatrol. Amazing. I don't mind the fragrance.
  83. Plump dewy skin

    Jenny

    I’ve only used this for about a week. I got it for antioxidant preventative purposes. So far skin feels more plump and hydrated. I use it with the buffet in the morning. I heard this will help with my pigmentation so hope to see some more exciting results in a few weeks.
  84. Don't really like it

    Joel

    I think this product is a little too harsh on my skin. I've used multiple vitamin c serums and powders but this one hurt my skin. If you have sensitive skin then just be careful with it. Less is definitely more.
  85. This is the real deal

    Michelle

    I’ve used a lot of vitamin c trying to get rid of my Queensland sun lover melasma and pigmentations. But this stuff is potent! After only a week my skin is looking more even and lighter!
  86. Effective but annoying

    Philippa

    I use this with Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, as recommended. It noticeably reduces redness and general skin appearance but it annoying/ hard to use. I have been given different advice for The Ordinary regarding what it can be mixed with (I am under the impression that buffet has been taken off the list of things it can be mixed with) and it leaves a very unpleasant odors on my hands which serious scrubbing can't remove.
  87. A lifesaver for reducing pigmentation

    Anastasia

    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+!
  88. Love it, but it requires trial and error

    Alexandra

    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.
  89. LOVE LOVE

    Chloe

    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.
  90. Good for the price

    Alysha

    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.
  91. The Best Product I Own

    Isabella

    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.
  92. Genius Product

    Lisa

    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.
  93. This makes my face so bright and dewy

    Kristie

    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.
  94. Love this

    Anjaly

    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
  95. Great product but stains fingernails and pillows

    Vanessa

    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.
  96. Superb idea

    Lina

    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
  97. Cheap and effective

    Ka

    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.
  98. When you need those extra antioxidants

    Orsi

    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!
  99. Favourite Vitamin C product

    Cathy

    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.
