Good for occasional use
However, I find the texture too 'oily' for regular nightly use as I have to make sure I leave a long time for it to sink in before going to bed. I'm not a fan of feeling products on my face as I go sleep (absolutely no sleep masques for me!). I'll continue using until it runs out but I'm not sure I'll repurchase.
Amazing resultsMy skin was glowing after 3 days of using this product, I added it to the ordinary vitamin C powder in the morning and at night, my skin is honestly glowing,
GreatI wanted to add these ingredients to my routine and this has improved my complexion and is so affordable. Will buy again
good to use with derma roller at homeverified purchaserI love all the Ordinary serums. I wanted to try to treat the premature aging wrinkles. The serum texture is rather a little oily and thick. I use this with the derma roller. The price range is very affordable and think my skin looks pumped after. I am not too sure if working specifically for wrinkles as yet.
Good for your skinI combine this serum with The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder in the morning. It is very hydrating and almost a little oily on the skin. After more than 6 months, I didn't see any change in my face.
Worth adding to your regimeI did exhaustive research on resveratrol to try an ascertain if it really was worth using. My conclusion is that it is. The Ordinary's Resveratrol and ferulic acid is an excellent buy. Inexpensive with a superior blend of just the right ingredients. I use it every morning along with other creams and serums and it plays beautifully with all of them.
Good for occasional useI only use this once a week with the Alpha Lipoic acid. After using this combo, I do wake up with great looking skin.

Works wellI started using this to help with my textured skin. I use it in conjunction with the Ascorbyl Glucoside and my skin texture has improved a lot. I did get some sensitivity when I first started using them, but I just reduced the use of my chemical exfoliator and that made it go away. I don't feel like it moisturises because my skin feels tight afterwards but if I moisturise as normal its fine.
Great for glowverified purchaserI bought this after using Skinceuticals resveratrol with C. I haven't seen a lot of difference yet, but it's definitely hydrating and doesn't react with my skin. Always great prices from this brand too.
Like itmaybe it's hard to see what it has done to your face but it does work. It makes my skin stable. it seems to me that ferulic acid helps my acne.
Younger looking skinThis serum is not too heavy but moisturize will. I use it at night and wake up with younger looking skin. I've been using it with Vitamin C cream and hoping to see the effects on my dark spots, but 3 months in not seeing any dramatic change.
Antioxidant superpowers!I was using a deluxe sample of the Skinceuticals Resveratrol but wanted to try this out as a much more affordable option! It’s wonderful! Protects and hydrates my ageing skin! I mix 1-2 drops with my face oil and it is great in the AM after a Vit C Serum for double the protection but also great at night. Will repurchase!
Great when mixed with Vitamin CI use this serum with The Ordinary's Vitamin C powder. It is very hydrating and almost a little oily on the skin. I can't speak for any longterm effects, but it provides a good dose of hydration and wears well under makeup.
Great morning serumI really like how this serum makes my skin feel. Its moisturising but not too oily. I combine it with the vit c emulsion and it sits well on my skin as well as under my makeup.
Best The Ordinary product, hands down!This is my new holy grail; from the moment this potion touches my skin it warms up upon contact and instantly makes my complexion glow! I've been using it twice a day, morning and night, and I'm already seeing a more even skin tone and a calmer, less irritated complexion. I cannot imagine not having it! If you're put off by the oiliness, just mix it with the Vitamin C + spheres products and let th...Read More
GreatI am not a fan of the texture but the product has helped my skin look better over time
hydration and radiantIt's a bit yellowish watering texture, a bit like oil. It seems not reducing my dark spots but hydrating my skin very much. My skin becomes sticky after applying on and it need more than 30 mins to settle down.
Effective but chose your daysI really love this product. Works well and my skin feels great. It is a bit thick and sticky so chose your days for wearing wisely.
Effective but chose your daysI really love this product. Works well and my skin feels great. It is a bit thick and sticky so chose your days for wearing wisely.
AntioxidantThis product is a bit heavy but good for use at night. I can tell it has antioxidant properties because it helps to brighten my complexion but I haven't noticed significant changes. But will use it up to see what happens!
hydration and minimize my poresI keep using the serum for two weeks now. I have sensitive dry skin, and easy to be irritated. The first time I applied it on, a bit burning feeling on my skin surprised me, but a few minutes later, my skin calmed down. Next morning, I found my skin smooth and bright. I love it though it scared me at the first time. I haven't see the visible improvement of spots on my skin.
Very strongI find this product to be quite strong by itself, so best to mix with another serum. I don't mind it, applies like a dream, but I haven't seen results so far because I've had to stop using it multiple times due to it's strength. Still trying to tweak the amounts.
GreatI use this at night and it has made my complexion better
GreatThis has improved my skin over time. Love the antioxidant benefits
AmazingThis has made my skin so smooth, supple and healthy looking. Will buy again
a must haveThis product goes on so smooth and applies well over products and under make up.
It has changed the texture of my skin. It is now smooth and my lines are decreasing so I am assuming it is this!
Seeing ResultsI have just completely changed up my skincare routine and am new to using The Ordinary brand and I'd be lying if I said the price of their products didn't played a huge role in my decision but there's also the fact that they get so many good reviews. This product feels warm when it goes on the skin which makes me feel like its actually doing something haha. Its been a few weeks of me using it and ...Read More
AmazingI love the ordinary products and this one especially moisturises my skin. It makes my skin look good too and I like that it has antioxidants.
Used this with L-ascorbic acidI used this solution with the companies L-ascorbic acid powder. It mixes well with the product. I didn't notice any difference in skin tone but since it's antioxidant I use it.
PromisingI've only just recently added this to my regime, but so far it seems promising and I think it might become a staple. Seems to make my skin hydrated and soft, and I've been mixing it with the Vitamin C powder, depending on what other products I'm using (not with Niacinamide, as they deactivate each other). It is one of the only oils that seems to go on okay over Niacinamide too, others seem to make...Read More
Feels lovely, but takes time.Although this doesn't contain any oil it is pretty greasy. But a little goes a VERY long way.
It takes a few minutes to sink into the skin but gosh does my skin feel so good after this along with the rest of my routine.
I have combination skin bordering the dry in winter but oily in the summer and am excited to see how this goes through summer.
A good Resveratrol product thats affordableI like this product and its price! Previously i was using an expensive moisturiser with Resveratrol and loved it but this serum is much more potent than the one i was previously using! Has a warming effect when applying, i wonder if anyone else experiences this? I use it only at night, a little goes a long way. Yes its oily but not too bad.
I did read its an estrogenic so i need to look int...Read More
A potent antioxidantThis is one of my favourite products from the Ordinary range. My skin feels hydrated and smooth after using. This product can be mixed with Vitamin C powder to enhance it's anti oxidant effect. It's a good all round serum to be used in the morning after cleansing.
Great mixed with the Vit C powderLOVING this mixed with The Ordinary Vitamin C powder. My skin looks so much more even in tone and my pores look noticeably smaller. This makes my skin glow! Definitely a holy grail for me. I’ve tried far, far more expensive Vit C/ferulic combos and gotten similar results, so why spend more?
Great to be mixedI pretty much only use this to go with the ordinary L ascorbic acid. I used it for a while on it's own and it was okay, nothing special
A great morning serumI mis this serum with 100% L-ascorbic powder for a fresh, bright skin. I'm in my 40s and often got asked how I maintain my youthful appearance. I think this product in conjunction with the Vit C powder really helps to make a difference, Considering the value of the two products, it's pretty amazing and meets my needs.
Unsure that I am seeing resultsI have dry skin with redness, I have been using this in the AM and I may start changing it up to use only as a PM every second night with Vitamin C as the serum is a bit greasy and takes a while to sink into the skin.
I have noticed maybe some improvement in skin clarity and tone, but not much.
Will continue to use until I finish the bottle and assess my skin then.
Not sure about its effectsI use this with my kiehls dark spot serum (i.e.vitamin c) because they say ferulic acid and vitamin c enhances both its effects. Maybe i am just yet to visibly see the results, but i cant say my skin has been getting worse!
Great to Fight Environmental PolutionThis is a really powerful antioxidant combination which is great for those who live in the city and face environmental toxins on a daily basis. It has really improved the clarity of my skin- definitely recommend!
Mum loves itI bought this for my mum and she can’t thank me enough. She has oily skin. She has been using it every day, running out and asking for more. her skin looks healthier and she feels great
AmazingThis is an amazing product that gives my skin such a nice and healthy glow. It is super affordable and offers the same results to me as high end products
Great serumThe serum blends in seamlessly into my skin and doesn't make my skin look greasy. I mix this in with my The Ordinary L-ascorbic acid powder and the two work together really well for brightening the skin. Together they make a cheap (almost) dupe for the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic
Love this. Powerful antioxidant that also makes my skin feel so hydrated.
A nice bonus productUnfortunately this product hasn't made a staple in my routine. Its nice on occasion but that's it for me.
Super ingredients!Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant and The Ordinary resveratrol has it as one of its 3 ingredients. I love that that's it....only 3...No messing around. You do however need a mix of antioxidants that are both water and fat soluble because free radicals attack both the fat and water part of a cell.
This serum is greasy with a slight smell that is not strong but I prefer it for night use w...Read More
Great addition to your beauty arsenalI mix this with the vitamin c powder at night and my skin is glowing, a beautiful addition to my growing collection of The Ordinary products. Well done for introducing this.
Pair with vit c and you're set!This is better quality and strength than the costly brands. Mix with a vit c and you will be looking amazing in no time! My oily skin loves this consistency too.
So affordableI put this on in the morning after my serums, but before my moisturiser (which I've added vitamin C) It goes on beautifully, but has a slightly greasier feel which not everyone likes. it also smells a bit weird, but I don't get hung up on that. Given the price and its benefits when paired with Vitamin C, I will continue to repurchase and use.
Makes my skin so glowyI bought this as a replacement for my buffet to mix with the Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder after reading a lot of reviews that recommended this mix.
I use a half a scoop of Ascorbic acid in the palm of my hand, add five drops of this acid, mix well with my finger and apply it all over my face and neck. I use this 2-3 times a week in my PM routine. My face glows the next morning, and ...Read More
Nice, but not sure if it is doing much...I have used this with The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F every morning for at least 6 months. I have not seen dramatic results. Don't get me wrong, my skin looks good while using this, but when I stopped using this for a week (ran out and was waiting for a new bottle) I didn't see a major difference... I suspect the The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20...Read More
Much oilier solution compared to other Ordinary productsI was really surprised at how oily this solution is. It's very heavy for someone with oily skin and normal skin. I also feel like the product does not absorb well and it feels like it just sits on my skin. It's not a sophisticated formula but for the price, I can't expect too much.
Mix this and win- antioxidant dream combo!This is the newest addition to my ever growing regime of TO’s products and it’s truly amazing! I’ve been using 23% Vitamin C in HA Spheres for quite some time with fabulous results and I’d been contemplating adding this with some trepidation based on many reviews of saying burning, peeling etc but I did my research and believed it worth a go and it’s been well worth it. The key is mixing it with t...Read More
Fabulous productThis serum is so good. It does exactly what it says it does & leaves the skin glowing, hydrated & soft. Use it nightly on top of your other products & you will wake up glowing. Or mix it into your moisturiser.
Nice compliment to skincare routineI I have been using this on alternative days with TO Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F to brighten my complexion and boost skin wellness, I have also use it with no issues with DE C-Firma, I can definitely notice a difference in my skin, it is glowier and brighter. Really great for the price.
PreventionI have combo/oily skin. I bought this to use in conjunction with Vit c 23% as a total antioxidant boost; I can’t justify the exorbitant cost of Skinceuticals CEF. For this price I think it’s a worthwhile addition to my routine and I know this is a preventative measure, just like sunscreen. The scent is a little metallic but certainly not a deterrent. Overall I’m happy with this serum!
OkayThis product is okay. It feels like an oil when you apply it. Makes my skin feel very greasy
BRIGHTMy skin is so nice after using this! It's a bit thick and kind of oily, however it does absorb if you leave it on your skin for a few minutes. I mix it in with the L-ascorbic Acid Powder from The Ordinary in my AM routine because used along with sunscreen can have a really great antioxidant effect and protect from sun damage and pollution. I love it! Brightens me up a lot along with the VitC. Was ...Read More
Antioxidant PowerhouseI have been using this for two weeks now. During the day, I mix it with vit C to form this super antioxidant team. It is a bit oil type texture but not really oil. It feels warm when applied but leave the skin dewy but not greasy. I apply a moisturiser and sunscreen after. No issues and works beautifully under makeup.
Excellent!I use this mixed with a vitamin C serum and it makes a big difference! My skin is smoother, more even toned - and such a great price!
Glides on SmoothAs with any product from The Ordinary, you can expect a no-frills product that delivers great value. This goes on nice and smooth and I haven't had issues with it being absorbed to my skin (I use 3 drops to cover my face, after water based serums and before creams). Even though it doesn't contain oil it does feel oily but it hasn't caused me to break out (I have oily and acne prone skin). As for t...Read More
Brightens the complexionI have slightly dry skin with some hyperpigmentation. I added this product in with a Vitamin C serum just to see what would happen and I was surprised how much it brightened my complexion. It definitely makes me look more glowy and hydrated. It needs a little time to sink in but that's not a big deal. Very pleased with the results and the price is incredible. Highly recommended.
Bright, glowy skin in a bottle!Absolutely love this! My favourite The Ordinary product.
I use it at night and wake up the next morning with brighter, glowing skin. I use a lot of The Ordinary’s products and I love all of them and use for different reasons, but I use this one the most and for such a quick and easy step in my routine it gives such great results!
It is a little greasy going on but absorbs really quickl...Read More
Its ok, but not wow!This one didn't wow me. I wasn't fan of the scent, and it takes a while to absorb. Not sure if it did any good for my skin. But it did not harm either, not sure I would re purchase. Might be more suitable for dryer skin types.
Healthy skinFeels a little greasy but the antioxidants are great for protecting your skin
Love this!I bought this product after reading the reviews and have not been disappointed! I have sensitive, acne prone skin and have to be careful with what I use but this has been great. I’m a tired mum of three young kids and each day after using this product my skins looks clearer and brighter which is an amazing result for very little effort. Will definitely buy again!
Good product but difficult to useI like the concept of this product - it can be hard to find a good quality antioxidant serum. however, the texture makes it a bit difficult to use. It feels oily and has a tendency to sit on the skin. I feel as though it may prevent any subsequent products from absorbing properly. I have used it over my moisturiser and other products and this helps a bit.
very oilyIt does not contain oil but literately it is kind of oil. It is hard to be absorbed but does not cause uncomfortable feeling comparing the vitamin C products. I think it is good value and worth to give it a try.
Love itHave only used this diluted with NMF so far but I love it! I have a lovely glow the next day and my skin feels moisturised and bouncy. Excited to use with a vitamin C product for an serious antioxidant boost!
MoistureTake it from a senior beauty therapist, ALL The Ordinary products are of GREAT value and true cosmeceuticals. This product is great for anyone needing hydration and doesn’t mind a heavier finish after water-based serums
Decent Product for the PriceNice product but it made my skin react and turn red. I can use it about once a week, but maybe my skin will adjust over time.
Gives good glowI use this maybe twice a week (alternate with a retinol and vitamin c other nights, I don't like layering heaps of stuff), and follow with TO Natural Moisturising Factors, and always wake up with forehead lines reduced, and a nice even tone and texture. Will re-purchase this one for sure. Like with a few of TO products, it's best to apply this an hour or so before bed to let it sink in with other ...Read More
Enjoying this...I love most of the ordinary’s products, and this is no exception. I only use a TINY amount every second day, or it’s too strong for my sensitive skin. As long as I exercise caution though the results are good, it seems to add a bit of extra rosy glow to my skin. I’m mainly interested in long term anti-ageing benefits, so while it hasn’t dramatically improved my over all complexion i’ll continue to...Read More
Leaves my skin feeling hydratedI really like this serum. I've been using it for months and it leaves my skin feeling plump and hydrated. I haven't noticed any noticeable difference in my skin but I'll definitely keep using it.
Strong stuff but worth persistingThis is an updated review. I first reviewed this product in April and only gave it 3 stars as it irritated my skin. I’ve since reintroduced it back into my routine very slowly and carefully as I’ve read about the powerful antioxidant hit received when you mix ferulic acid with vitamin c. I started with just one drop mixed in with my vitamin c 30% a couple of times a week and had no irritation. I’m...Read More
Super OilI use this with the 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder from The Ordinary. It feels so good after a long day, as I can feel the product working for me and brightening it!
I also use this without the powder, on days where I just need a glow. Works so well even without make up on.
Highly recommended x
LOVE!Combination skin. I love this product! It works miracles on its own at the end of my nightly routine.. and really adds a kick to the 23% vitamin C. It doesn't congest my skin and I wake up with lovely, bright skin. I'll definitely be repurchasing.
AmazingThis product has a beautiful consistency, I have dry skin and it feels very hydrating. I love using it in the morning to help protect my skin from free radical damage.
Cheaper than SkinceuticalsApparently, Ferulic acid enhances the stability of Vitamin C, particularly L-AA. So naturally after a lifetime under the Antipodean sun, I thought it would be a good idea to use as many anti0oxidants as possible on my skin, even if the results mean I only look ten minutes younger.
I only use this every second day mixing with TO Vitamin C 23%. Personally, I can't see any difference thus far,...Read More
NiceUse every morning before suncreams to protect my skin from uv. It may a little bit oliy at beginning and will be better feeling after.
Essential to my sincere routineWhen used with vit.c, the ferulic acid supports the skin's resistance to cell damage, so I apply every morning after my HA and Vit c, before my spf moisturiser. I've found it absorbs quickly and wasn't too oily, provided you let it soak in. A great, non-reactive antioxidant, I also sub it in instead of EUK if I'm acid toning of an evening. Nice stuff :)
A good antioxidantI've used a lot of different vitamin c products before, but most recently decided to try this as my antioxidant. I mix a few drops into my moisturising serum each morning. It does make my face a bit more oily/shiny so I'll probably go back to vit c next time. Good value though.
Antioxidant boostI had read about using this in conjunction with my Vit C in order to give it an antioxidant boost and therefore increase the effectiveness of the Vit C. I want to like this more than I do however I do find it quite oily despite being oil-free. It does take a while to absorb and sink into skin. I usually apply my Vit C in the morning and sometimes do not have enough time to wait for this to absorb ...Read More
Interesting...This has an interesting texture: it seems very oily, but it has no actual oil in it whatsoever! Consequently, my skin had no problem with The Ordinary's Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, despite feeling like I was slathering my face with oil. Yes, it take does quite a lot of time to absorb, so I tend to use it on a weekend when pottering around at home rather than overnight (so it doesn't end up o...Read More
Not right for my face unfortunately - but great for hands!Unfortunately I had a reaction to this product after trying it for a few nights. I think perhaps to the Ferulic acid. I now use it on the back of my hands as an antioxidant boost under my hand cream and it is working wonders!
Great serumI use this serum 2 to 3 times a week at night before moisturiser. My skin feels hydrated and soft. The bottle will last a while as you don't need a lot of product. The only negative is the smell but it's tolerable and goes away after a minute or two.
Great resultsI started using The Ordinary products about 5 months ago and have been so impressed by the results. The Resvaratrol is one I use every night. I love the warmth on the skin and have already repurchased.
Very happyI like this very much. I’ve started using The Ordinary products 3 or 4 months ago and couldn’t be happier - my skin has never looked so good.
I use this one morning and evening together with Matrixyl after salicylic acid (morning) and lactic acid or retinol or alpha lipoid acid (evening) and before moisturiser.
I’ll definitely stick with it.
Nice productThis is a nice anti-oxidant that I use daily in the morning before HA serum. It feels very oily at first but absorbs quickly. I'm getting toward the end of my first bottle and am liking it. I'll probably re-buy. I am not sure that this product has made a difference to repairing/improving my skin, but more protects it from any future damage.
This was unfortunately very re-active to my sensitive skin.I use alot of The Ordinary's products and am always looking for something extra to experiment with to add to my routine.. This one was sadly not a good fit for my sensitive skin. I use the retinols,several of the acids and ascorbyl glucoside successfully but Resveratol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% burnt my face on application and left me with an angry red rash. I have fair skin, blue eyes and blonde hair...Read More
I really wanted to like this!I love so many of TO’s products, but unfortunately this is not one of them. I’m used to retinoids, Vit C, various acid exfoliants etc, and my skin isn’t particularly sensitive. This product caused instant blotchy redness and excessive warmth, even after mixing 2 drops with my usual moisturiser. I tried to give it another go a few days later, but my skin instantly reacted and I looked

A Great Little Serum Booster !Only 2 weeks in and I'm enjoying using this product alone, or mixing it with the same brand Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% for a double boost.
It seems oily on application however it just glides on my oily & dehydrated skin smoothly and sinks right in leaving my skin looking dewey and healthy. Will definitely be a repurchased product !
