I like using this at night. It can moisturise well

Most Helpful Criticism

Eh

Jenn1986

I was fooled into this because its sooo cheap for vitamin c compared to the others. But like many others mention the texture is just awful. I used it twice and chucked it in a drawer. I also didn't realise it was more designed for pm use - i would prefer to vitamin c in the am.
  1. Good but quite rough

    Sacha

    The texture of this is quite rough, it says powdery but it's definitely more course than that. I think it is good but doesn't work well with other products, so best used under others or on it's own. My skin does feel like and soft after using it, if you can get past the texture.
  2. I really wanted to like this

    Sam

    I really really wanted a cheap vitamin C product because I had luck with another serum but it was getting too expensive for me as it was over $60. I wanted to try this because I've liked other The Ordinary products. I have super sensitive, dry and dehydrated skin with acne scars. The other serum I used really brightened my skin and reduced my scars. I used this one and it burned my skin so badly a...

    This makes my skin look brighter
  4. Stingy but good!

    Red lipstick

    The product is a tad challenging to the nose(smells a bit dodgy) and yes it stings (makes your face feel alive!) BUT if you can overcome these challenges this product is absolutely smashing - glowy skin and a smile on your face please note use sparingly honestly it’s fab
  5. Basic vitamic C product

    Starry

    If you want to incorporate vitamin C into your skincare routine without spending a bomb, this is the product for you. It's not the most cosmetically elegant product - it really is like gritty little pieces of vitamin C suspended in a tacky lotion. But if you can get past that it really works.
  6. Great product

    KH8

    Love this product, use it every night and always have glowy skin the next day. My skin is a bit sensitive to it but I just mix it into my moisturiser and no more tingling.
  7. I saw visible results!

    Dee

    verified purchaser
    I used this prior to the transition to skinceuticals CE Ferulic. I did see visible results on my skin - it was lighter, not as dull, and some pigmentation got lighter. It does sting though so just an FYI.
  8. Prefer to use at night

    Karen

    Not completely sold on it - has a lotion consistency, with a gritty texture and gives my skin a itchy tingly feeling. Because of this I prefer to use it at night, but usually prefer a C for the AM. But after 6 weeks use with the TO Serum in the AM I can see some fading on my sun spots. Wouldn't purchase again though.
  9. Great for the price

    A

    Left my skin looking a lot less ruddy and textured, the product did have a slight gritty texture but I probably wouldn't have noticed if I didn't read the reviews prior. The only downside is that my nose was peeling for a few days and there is quite a bit of stinging at first (both of which subdued once my skin got used to it).
  10. Not sold on this product

    Cam

    I'm not overly keen on this product, I found the texture of this gel/serum to be quite gritty and greasy and makes my skin feel really irritated and itchy. Applying it at night, I was finding my skin to be nice and bright the next morning but the itchy lips and eyes mean this product probably isn't for me.
  11. Its ok

    madelainejane

    I needed something to help brighten my skin and was referred to this product. As soon as i put it on i got a tingle sensation which i read was normal. I cant say ive noticed a difference. The texture is a little off putting and its hard to add moisturiser/nightcream on afterwards. I would recommend a serum but will keep using to see if any changes in the next few weeks.
  12. Good value for money

    Sandie

    My skin tingled upon application for the first week of use. The texture is powdery/gritty, but it goes well under moisturizer. Good value for money.

  14. hard to get just a little out of the bottle

    Rebecca

    as soon as I open the lid, it starts rapidly oozing out.
    You only need a TINY amount, so the fact that so much rushes out when you open the product is quite wasteful. I made the mistake the first time it happened of deciding just to put it all on my face and neck. Oh my gosh - I regretted that.
    It does take a few uses for your skin to not sting - definitely make sure not to use it on...

    ya

    it's a bit oily in texture, I'm not entirely sure this is for me. I like the brightening and hydrating effects the day after
  17. Not for sensitive skin

    Emily

    Even after reading reviews and knowing this is not for sensitive skin, I got excited and purchased this hoping it would work for me. It really irritated my skin and took a week to die down.
    Learn from my mistake! I recommend going with their gentler C products if your skin is reactive.
  18. Cheap

    Sandie

    This Vitamin C has a gritty texture and does tingle upon application. Have only applied at night (as recommended) and it goes well under moisturizer. I don't enjoy the powdery feel of this vitamin C and will try the Suspension 30% in Silicone.

    I had to initially start using this cream by diluting it with my face moisturiser until my skin got used it it. Nevertheless I disliked how oily it mades my face and how gritty it is on the skin.

    Minca

    The texture is powdery so best to apply at night.
    The tingling startled me a bit but it's easy to get used to it.
    Pretty weird smell but I guess it's still better than fragrance in my skincare?
    Still observing the result but it's really good value for money.

  25. A bit scratchy

    Erika

    I really want to love this product - Vitamin C and HA together, what could be better! But the HA spheres in this makes it quite scratchy and I find myself avoiding it and reaching for other products.
  26. Smoothen my skin but tingly

    Ma

    This product definitely smoothen/brighten my skin but irritates even applying very small amount. So I use this more like a mask 1-2 times a week, apply and leave for 5-10min then wash it off :)
  27. Great value Vitamin C!

    Leticia

    I don’t mind the texture of this vitamin c. Some people may not like the grittiness. It can tingle slightly and you do need to research and be mindful of what other products you are using to ensure they don’t negatively interact. For the price it is great value. Since using this my skin tone is noticeably much brighter and smoother. I’m onto my second bottle!
  28. Awesome Vitamin C Cream - but don't mix it with the wrong products!

    Maisy

    This product is amazing for the price point. I've noticed my skin being brighter and more even-toned after a few days use. It does tingle a little, but it tingles a lot if you mix it with the wrong products! I accidentally used this after using 'The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%' and it burned much more. This was a mistake - Deciem lists these two as clashes. I would make sure you know how yo...

  29. Bad texture

    Lepote

    I was dissapointed by this product. I'm a huge fan of The Ordinary products, especially their retinol and AHA. But this Vitamin C has the worst texture. It feels very heavy on your skin and if you rub it at all it starts pilling into little balls on your face. I have tried it a few times as the price is so good, but I can't stand to keep it on for more than a few minutes. I would not recommend it.
  30. A little gritty

    Linda

    Feels a bit gritty when you first spread it on but I think I look a bit more even now
  31. Affordable Vitamin C

    Andy

    I like how accessible this is compared to other vitamins C products though the texture is a bit strange
  32. Great value vitamin C

    Cindy

    I love the vitamin C brightening effect even though the texture of this leaves something to be desired
  33. New to this product but liking it so far

    Sal

    Avid 'The Ordinary' user and have recently added this to my regime. As it states, it can give you the tingles but easily sorted if you mix it with your moisturiser. I've been using it every few days and have noticed that my skin seems a bit more even and vibrant. Price point is great, too!

    First night using it and so far I think i like it.
    Definetly stings a bit but its bearable, makes me feel like something is happening!!
    I dont mind the powdery feel to it, I was planning on using it at night anyways.

    There is definitely a tingle when I use this product (which is unlike my other Vit C product that I like, the Aesop facial serum) and always make sure I'm only using a small amount. I wouldn't recommend it for a first time Vit C user, but if you're comfortable with Vitamin C, then this product is definitely worth trying. After a week of use, I feel an improvement in the texture of my skin the mor...

  39. Stingy!!!

    Shellz

    Not a fan at all of this product, i read the reviews before buying and thought i would give it a go as it was a lot cheaper than the other vitamin c product i had been using. I have even diluted it with rosehip but i don't think i can bare the stingy sensation anymore. Maybe its not made for my skin. I do like the feel of the grain though.
  40. Definitely not Ordinary

My complexion is completely smooth and even, my blemishes seem to be gone and my skin is so smooth. Yes, the consistency is a little grainy but it doesn't bother me one bit. I use it at night with a night cream, Argireline 10% and Moroccan argon oil from the same brand. It is in...

    I absolutely love this product! It has cleared my skin of redness and smoothed it, the texture is a bit grainy but with a thin layer, it works wonders!
  44. Hard to use but really good

    Lucy

    This is definitely grainy, and hard to use with other products. Quite tingly on application. It pills easily - this is reduced by mixing with another product in your hands before applying - or using with fewer other items. Still, seems to work well, i feel like it brightens my complexion.
  45. Love hate relationship

    Sharna

    I really love the way this product makes my skin feel in the morning after using it. It’s smooth, soft and looks really good. However, I loathe the way my hands smell in the morning after using this even when I’ve washed them. The first time I used this without washing my hands they turned a little yellow, which was a little alarming. That being said, I have repurchased this one before but I think...

  47. Nightly Serum Mask

    Bright2Light

    I use this as part of my nightly regime with the Ordinary Niacinamide formula (for blemishes and redness) and Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid (for pump and moisture).

    It absorbs better with a micro needle roller (beware - increases the sting) prior to application. I apply the Niacinamide, then Vita C, and then hyaluronic acid once they have sunk in. Using it alone is much easier (it’s a wond...

    Rav

    Not the best 'The Ordinary' product I've tried because it does sting a little for the first few days but it has helped with my pigmentation and makes my skin look healthier. I use it every other night
  51. Try a different Vit C

    Hannah

    This product does function, but I believe that there are more cosmetically-elegant vit c products, even from the ordinary. If you're not bothered by a gritty texture or pilling then its fine, but I don't believe it's worth it just for the high percentage of vit c given science has shown not much additional benefit comes from such a high amount compared to e.g. 10%.
  52. Great value highly recommend

    Bhuvana

    Love it. Stings a little, my skin can tolerate a high amount of actives. Great value.

    Ok! I bought this product probably 3 months ago and absolutely HATED it! It pilled and stung and was SO irritating to my acne-prone skin, I couldn’t believe I’d spent $10 on this.

    Linka

    For under $10 this product is a win, make sure to mix it up with your moisturizer to avoid rolling off. The gritty texture seems to diminish in the right mixing product.

    Connie

    After a few uses, I noticed my skin was a lot brighter! Great value for a vitamin C product! Only downside was the gritty texture and pilling if used with certain other products.

    sha

    definitely worth it if you're experienced with vitamin C. if you're a beginner, I'd recommend mixing this product with moisturiser to build tolerance. The glow on my skin after using this product is unreal
  62. some days I notice a difference

    linga

    wasn't noticing too much of a difference, so I coupled it with glycolic acid (which we are warned to be wary of as it really dries out your skin) and noticed a big difference. Couldn't do it like that everyday though. Just every now and then

    When using this product I found that it really irritated my skin so much that I had to take it off completely. I tried it again a few days later and went to sleep so i didn’t have to deal with the itchiness. I woke up and my skin was really nice but I find that I have the same experience with the product each time.
  65. Affordable and gives results

    Kirsty

    Good product. Tingles after application for 30 seconds or so but isn't unbareable. As a few people have mentioned, it has a slightly grainy texture, but I apply in a patting motion rather than rubbing and haven't experienced any skin irritation or unpleasentness. I do wish that the packaging was more environmentally friendly but that's a personal preference. I would purchase again.
  66. Excellent product

    Very Impressed

    It beggars belief that this brand has all these items for sale @ very affordable prices...yet they do & their products are excellent.I love this, it tingles for a few minutes when first applied, but it settles, it feels very grainy, so I tend to dab the cream on rather than rub.An excellent item, highly recommended & will be repurchasing!!
  67. I like it

    Novoanna

    I’ve used this product yesterday first time (never used VitC skin care before). The texture is ok, no problem with applying. I haven’t have any discomfort or irritation, just a little bit of redness. But the smell of my skin after kills me (it’s so weird, something metallic?? I don’t know...). But I can’t fault it because at next morning my skin looks brighter!
  68. Brightening and hydrating!

    CC

    I really enjoyed using this product, it hydrated and brightened my skin which is awesome! Love a two birds, one stone product!

    Bianca

    This didn't hurt or sting on my skin one bit. I have been using this for about a week and I can already see a difference, my skin is a lot brighter and glowly. It does have a gritty feeling but like you aren't rubbing anything on your face. That doesn't bother me though so I would definitely recommend
  70. Tingles but worth it

    Akiko

    I put this on after the retinol and it stung real bad for about 20 seconds I almost was about to wash it off but I pushed through and then later that night my skin just felt so plump and jiucy and healthy so the burning sensation was definitely worth it haha!
  71. Decent Product

    Becca

    This is a decent product, after a few weeks haven't noticed significant changes in my skin maybe a little bit brighter so far but nothing alarming either. does feel a little bit grainy when I put on my face but nothing concerning and no irritation so far.
  72. Good for sensitive skin

    Jarin

    This silicone free version has definitely reduced the breakouts I got from the 30% vit c. While I do feel like my skin is brighter and some hyperpigmentation has been reduced, this does take time.
  73. Not sure

    Leah

    It applies more like an oil and doesn’t absorb quickly, I haven’t noticed any significant results but I’ll still continue to use it
  74. Look, you're going to hate it at first, but trust me, it works!

    Kota

    I assume that whoever coined "no pain, no gain" had this product in their beauty regime. "A tingling sensation" doesn't really cover it, this product HURT when I first started using it, and 2 months later it still doesn't feel great. On top of the sting it's also gritty as you apply it so all-in-all it feels like you're making a huge mistake. So yes, right before bed I basically do some mild facia...

    Loz

    Initially it gave too much of a tingly feeling so I gave up on it but have since mixed it with a moisturiser and it has been fine. I don't find it as good and effective as some of the other ordinary products, but for the price point, you can't really complain!

I started to use under my SPF in the am to help my skin even more against the harsh sun. Also with hormonal acne and if I ever do any picking, it does help with quicker ...

  87. Will repurchase!

    Tara

    Still packs a punch despite being on the cheaper side! I've seen a visible reduction in problematic pigmention since using this. I've been wanting to try one of the other vitamin c serums on the market by other brands just to compare but in all honesty, I think I'll just keep on using this one! Layers really well with other skincare. I use it at night before my heavier serums and creams.
  88. Brightens skin

    pen_zoilz

    Overall I do like this product and I (think) that it is working for me. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and I think my skin is a bit brighter and radiant looking. I use it in combination with The Ordinary's Retinoid 0.2% so it is hard to tell which product is making the difference! It does have a gritty feel and it also does sting a bit when you first apply. But if you can deal with that, the...

  89. Brighter skin!

    Caitie

    Although this product did sting my face the first few times I used it, I now enjoy putting it on every second morning to brighten up my skin. I don't mind the gritty texture and have been able to wear it beneath make-up without any problems.
  90. not good for sensitive skin

    a

    the first time i used this, it really stung and irritated my skin. it also began pilling in my skin. vitamin c is a great ingredient but i think this is formulated at too high of a percentage for someone with sensitive skin like myself
  91. Very strong for sensitive skin

    Bri

    I have sensitive skin so this vitamin C I can definitely feel it work especially on dry patches. I was worried the packaging wasn't very stable but I assume because I can feel it working that it is stable. My favourite way to use this is to mix it with body lotion and apply it to places with stretch marks or pigmentation.
  92. Soft skin

    Ellie

    I was so shocked when I first applied the product because it completely eradicated my dead skin much more effectively than EVERY other product I have tried. Left my skin silky smooth in the morning and prevented clogged pores! In love!
  93. Great value and works

    Alana

    I love this product. Its a great vitamin c for the price point.
    When you start using it at first it can feel like a burning sensation... if thats the case try mixing it into a moisturiser so its less direct on your skin. Work your way up as your skin gets used to it.
  94. I love vitamin C

    TC

    Takes a little bit of time to get used to as it is a high percentage and would recommended mixing it into moisturiser for the first few uses as your skin adjusts, but once adjusted the results are incredible
  95. Workday go to

    Ryan

    Just a little tingle and my face is smoother and more matte than ever. Smoothens the lines and brightens the dark circles with such a minimal amount.
  96. AMAZING

    chlolololo

    this stuff is almost like a chemical peel. It gets rid of all my dead skin and makes it feel so nice and soft the next day. It's pretty strong so either clears up blemishes or brings stuff to the surface so it can clear up quicker. Highly recommend!
  97. Brightening

    Ashlee

    I love this product for the difference it has made to my acne scars and overall brightening of my skin. However, it is quite thick and oily and doesn't seem to sink into the skin- so I would recommend to use it at night. I have gotten amazing results though! One of my favourite products from The Ordinary.

    Miss Tarnia

    I must admit, after seeing and feeling the effects of the Retinol 0.2% I was more intrigued at this products description and got it. The Ordinary literature said day or night and after 1 use during the day, I opted for night application. It’s a bit like the exercise burn, the tingle makes me feel like it’s working and boy, is it working. I apply it near the end of my regime, before the Moisturisin...
