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!

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.

    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.

  4. 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...

  5. 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.
  6. Affordable Vitamin C

    Andy

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

    Cindy

    I love the vitamin C brightening effect even though the texture of this leaves something to be desired
  8. 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!
  9. Not bad!

    Daniela

    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.
    I find its got a bit of a fake tan kind of smell to it (mild) which is the only thing that bothers me about it, no one else has mentioned that in the comments so m...

    ta721

    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...

    This product tingles and stings a bit so you know it’s doing something haha I use a more expensive c product for my face and use this cheaper one for my neck and décolletage. I’ve been using this and a retinol and my chest skin tone is much more evened out.

  14. 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.
  15. Definitely not Ordinary

    Part of a fantastic range of products, the Vitamin C suspension lives up to all the promises as well as the reputation of, 'the Ordinary'

    Julz

    Wow is all I can say. I have been using it for over 2 weeks now and my skin is literally glowing, in and out of the sun. 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...

Once you get over the original texture of the product, it’s a game changer and definitely something I’ll be ke...

  19. 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.
  20. 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...

    I added this to my skin care routine and it’s made my skin feel and look way more hydrated! It can tingle and burn a little after I apply it but it’s normally fine after a few minutes.
  22. 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...

  25. Great

    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
  26. 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%.
  27. Great value highly recommend

    Bhuvana

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

    Liv

    For under $10 this product is great value. I noticed a small difference in my skin but not massive. Recommend mixing with another product.
  29. PSA FOR ANYONE WHO HATES THIS

    Jess

    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.
    BUT! After reading up on how to layer skincare and giving this another go, I’ve found a way to use it that works perfectly for me! I now use it most mornings, and stick to the same regime whenever I do use it that...

It also stings on application even when mixed with other products and feels awful. I ...

    I have used this product daily at night for over a month. Like many other reviewers, I found this product to feel grainy and a bit itchy on application. I have noticed that my skin looks happier and healthier in the morning after using this. My redness has gone slightly down and feels a bit smoother.
  32. Great price

    RF

    I used this product and found it alright. I have since tried something different as I wanted a different texture. It's good for a low budget option.
  33. perfection

    Sarah

    This has made my skin tone even and glowy over time. Can't believe how good this product is
  34. exceptional price

    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.
  35. Amazing Value!

    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.
  36. vitamin c

    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
  37. 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
  38. Great Product

    Lizy

    I have tried vitamin C powder in this TO brand and other expensive brand and because of product not in stock, I purchased this type and I have to say that I like it. It's not gritty like the TO 30% Vit C so I'm very pleased in that sense. The effectiveness is still the same. I can feel the product working once I put it on my skin. You don't need to apply much at all. I use this with Niamicide and...

  39. in between opinions

    sf

    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.
  40. 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.
  41. 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!!
  42. 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!
  43. 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!
  44. so so good

    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
  45. 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!
  46. 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.
  47. 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.
  48. 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

    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...

  52. Follow the instructions

    Lizzy

    When I initially started using this product, I made a few mistakes, don’t apply it with your Niacinamide, it will peel! (Also interferes with both products.)

    Use in the PM, use less than you think you need, mix it with your moisturiser and leave to set. (If your skin continues to tingle after initial application wash it off after a few minutes.)

  54. Not the ordinary's best product

    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!

    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.

  65. 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
  66. 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.
  67. 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!
  68. 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.

    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

    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!
  72. 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...

    M

    I suspect there’s probably similar products on the market which are 3-4x the price! Likely more dressed up. It has an almost powdery texture and for a cream it’s not at all hydrating. What it is is more akin to a toner or peel. Definitely a patch test candidate as it’s tingly on first use and that’s usually a good sign it’s working. Very good for uneven skin/ rough texture.

  76. So so Vit C

    ST

    I wanted to like this Vitamin C, but it's just OK. The texture is quite grainy, and yes it stings on application until your skin gets used to it. Mine still hasn't after a few months of use. I've mixed it with serums to improve the texture, but overall I don't find it does much in the way of brightening my complexion or making me glow, as so many people who use Vit C creams say.

    My skin is quite sensitive and this product stings every time I put it on. I've never used an vitamin C products before, however the sting here is quite unbearable and I've also noticed that it sometimes makes my serums underneath peel off (even if I wait up to half an hour after applying). It has however made my skin more plump and glowy, but I don't think I will buy again.

    I haven't had much opportunity to use this (as I read online that Vitamin C does not mix well with Niacinamide so I generally prefer prioritizing using Niacinamide over this product) however from the 10-12 uses I did get out of it (over the span of the last month) I can definitely say that my skin does feel more radiant! If it wasn't for the bumpiness of my skin, I would prefer using this product ...

    This product has changed my skin in addition to other The Ordinary products by making my skin smoother, softer and gives off an airbrush effect. It does sting a little when used and exfoliates well. I don't actually need to exfoliate my skin now because of this product. Love this product and have already bought a second one. It is also well priced for the result that it has given me.
  83. Amazing !!

    Bhuvana

    I am just about to order my second tube of this product. I love it, goes on so smoothly, a little tingling happens but not uncomfortable. My skin looks much better having used this. Great range in this brand and very affordable.
  84. Good value and effective vitamin c

    Belle

    Beware sensitive skin, for this one stings. If I had a blemish it really stung. I do love this product, as it is really effective and you could see results after one use. I have combination skin, and it really helped bring my dull skin to life. Definitely would buy again.
  85. Great vit c!

    Jane

    I have just started using this in the past week. I only use every second night. I thought I had sensitive skin, but I haven’t had much burning to stinging, which I’ve read other people had. The formula is very gritty, so I leave it a while to sink in before applying moisturiser. I only use at night. It seems to be working, so very happy with the product. I’ll be using it as my go to vit c now.
  86. Not for oily/normal skin

    Natalia

    I have a combination oily skin and I tried it in different scenarios. The most beneficial way is to apply this in the evening and leave it over night. There are some other unsuccessful ways of wearing it, so if you want to save some of your time, please read more:) I used to wear it after finishing a lunch work out in pre Covid times (gosh feels like a century ago) and an hour later I would find m...

  87. Worth the sting

    Shannon

    I bought this product after reading about the benefits of Vit C serums. The texture is a bit gritty (as I expected) and the product definitely has a distinct smell; it's not offensive, but I wouldn't want to have it on all day (it's fine at night when you're going to sleep!). I find that the product does make my skin tingle and string, but I also find that it works really well to help exfoliate th...

  88. Not bad but not in love

    JS

    I love every product I’ve used from TO and think they’re products are great value for money, but I just felt this vitamin c was a little underwhelming.
    The smell and texture is not the most pleasant but is definitely would be able to get past that if the product was great but I really didn’t see results. I also found it didn’t sit that well underneath makeup and did notice some congestion f...

  89. Stand out Product

    Vennila

    This is by far my favourite product by “The Ordinary”. The results were instant, and it seems like this is what my skin has been begging me for! It does have a gritty texture (like a lot of Vitamin C products), so I only use on make-up free days and in my night time routine. The product makes the skin tingle, but in a way that suggests the ingredients are active and working (not in a burn-my-skin-...

  90. Good choice for someone trying vitamin c for the first time

    Grace

    This was the first vitamin c product I have ever tried and I experienced no irritation or stinging. It definitely had a brightening effect on my skin. It does feel a bit gritty when applied due to the formulation, and I felt it took a while to soak in to my skin.
  91. Weird texture, but makes your skin glow

    Sam

    I recently bought The Ordinary's Vit C Suspension with HA Spheres as my skin was looking dull after pregnancy. I wont lie- the texture feels disgusting, but I have never used a product that has made my skin look so dewy and amazing by the next day! It's awesome! It does sting a little, but that fades over time... a must have to bring glow back if your skin is looking or feeling a little lacklustre...

  92. Mixed feelings

    Emma

    This was my first entry into topical Vitamin C. It's tingly, tending towards stingy if you have any open wounds on the skin (such as open breakouts). It's a bit gritty and can pill if you don't wait for it to sink in completely before applying other products. It's quite intense for my acne prone skin, and caused sensitivity and breakouts until I started mixing it into my moisturiser. However, it's...

  93. Texture

    Jess

    Over the past three weeks of trying this product, the only thing I’ve noticed it the unusual gritty like texture when applied to skin. It also makes my neck very irritated but not my face.
  94. A little disappointed but still love The Ordinary.

    Shez

    I love The Ordinary range but unfortunately not this product. I used it for about 3 weeks every night and I did not use it with my Niacinamide + Zinc serum but still experienced a lot of piling when I applied it on my face. I mixed it with some moisturiser which solved the piling issue but then found my face breaking out in areas that I usually have no issues with. My skin is dry in some areas but...

  95. Disappointing

    lo

    I love the ordinary and have used many of their products. However I have not noticed any difference or brightening from this product. It also has an unpleasant smell and feels very heavy.
  96. Unimpressed

    VivT89

    I really wanted to like this product but unfortunately it's been the most disappointing product of The Ordinary brand.
    It has a weird texture that's kind of sticky and pills- nothing like what I've experienced with other vitamin C products. It also has an unpleasant scent of some kind of metal (that's the only way I can describe it). I didn't even get half way through the tube I ended up th...

  97. Amazing product

    Sarah

    My skin looks brighter as soon as I apply it. Longer term use gives you that photoshopped glow.
  98. irritating

    leigh

    found this really irritating, my skin is sensitive though so maybe it is just me
  99. First vitamin C product I've used

    Rhiannon

    This is the first vitamin C product I've added into my routine and I love it! It is amazing value and gives me such a great glow. I started out using it every second night as I noticed some irritation initially as I have sensitive skin and after about a week or so began using it every night. It does have a slightly odd texture but I don't notice it once I've finished applying it and have put my mo...
