On my 78 year old skin with its inevitable wrinkles, i use this in combination with the Marine Hyularonic at night - a little while before bed so it has a chance to do the best job on my skin rather than my pillowcase. Happy at last to find affordable and ethical products. Thank you

Good for the price
This product has a decent brightening effect however it is not my favourite vitamin c product. The texture isn’t as smooth as I would like but for the price I can’t complain it’s pretty good
Like itI 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!

GreatThis works I think
I use it in the night time and after few nights I think my dark spots are really fade . I have tried so many products that claim to fade the dark spots but nothing come close to this one. I think if someone’s looking to brightens the face or eliminate the dark spots should try this one. I recommend.

EasyI prefer this to the powder vitamin C alternative, easy to use and it has a lovely brightening effect
Cheap and effective Vitamin CI bought this to replace my old Vitamin C serum. It's not my favourite product from The Ordinary, but I like to use it sometimes in the morning to protect against sun damage, along with sunscreen of course! Grainy texture is a bit annoying but I do like the fact it's in a tube so doesn't oxidise quickly. I just make sure I rub it in well so the Vit C is absorbed.
Bargain Vitamin C!Such a great price for fantastic, gold standard ingredients!
It goes on very smoothly, no gritty feeling. It does sting a little bit, but it subsides. It makes my skin very soft.
I’ve definitely noticed a brightening to my skin!
Where has this been all my life?!To be honest when I bought this I wasn’t even sure what it was supposed to do, but now I get it! Since using this for a few weeks my skin looks SO much younger, brighter and healthier. I have dry skin that’s prone to looking really dull and this has completely fixed that. Obsessed!
Enjoying ItLove it day and night! Great to help brighten and lighten the skin
ImpressedThis is my second try at a Vitamin C product, having used a liquid version in another brand which I found oxidized very quickly, had an unpleasant smell and made my skin feel very scaly after a few weeks' use. This goes on much more smoothly, feels hydrating because of the silicone, and I feel that my fine lines look less noticeable already. Have also been using it on the backs of my hands in an attempt to fade some age spots, with good results. Will definitely re-purchase.
Love itActually loving the silicone base of this, leaves my skin feeling so smooth. I mix it with my sunscreen and then I'm ready for foundation. Such good value!
Good productI mix this with my Granactive Retinol, goes on lovely an absorbed fast. Nice little tingle.
Helped with pigmentaion and radianceEasier to use than the powder. Have reordered! Will keep using this product. I do notice that my skin is brighter and it is great value.
not a fanI bought this by mistake, instead of TO Vit C 23%. I cannot stand the silicone! This product does not suit my skin type (combination oily) the silicone sits on top of the skin, it almost feels like an oil. I think if you had dry irritated skin this would be perfect for you.
The silicone also breaks me out. Do not recommend.
Feels uncomfortable on the skinMade my skin tingle. I tried to use it over the course of a month but it just kept irritating my skin
Mix with favourite ordinary moisturiserLove it day and night
Great buyI normally use Vit C that requires refrigerating, so I love this one can be kept with my other products and is a perfect travel size. It goes on smoothly with a nice tingle. The next morning I wake up fresh faced, hydrated skin with a great glow. I would highly recommend trying this
Value for moneyHave recently started using The Ordinary products and love them. I haven’t experienced the tingling sensation so I’m not mixing it. Gives skin a lovely smooth feel
Great ProductGreat Product, my skin feels so smooth afterwards.
Skin smoothingIt's a great product, going to be a part of my regular skin routine. It stings a little but doesn't last long. I really noticed it work after sanding my floors the very fine dust got under my skin, small & lumpy, after one treatment it was back to normal. At first I was avoiding creams with this fine dust around, I cannot believe what it did, it's works for evening skin texture, I did find slight change in complexion but have also started using alpha gold.
Smoother skin, messy orange aftermath.This definitely leaves my skin feeling smoother and softer. I like the added silicone but it doesn't spread very easily. I don't like that it makes an orange mess on pillowcases.
Amazing! Loved the formulaThis product has helped fade many of my acne scars. I apply this after cleansing my face every morning and then layer on a moisturiser. My skin has been so much brighter and my oily skin has not been producing as much excess oil anymore. Love the product and would definitely buy it again. The price point is great too!
Goodbye sun damageI have invested a huge amount of time and money looking for a product to help sun damage on my forearms. My skin is fair to medium toned and has started to look slightly crepey. Researching the restorative benefits of silicone and vitamin c thankfully led me to this product. The tube is generous in size and the texture is thick yet silky and blends very well. Instantly I noticed hydration that lasted all day. The crepe look is minimalised and I am so excited about the results to come in the next few months. The product delivers excellent hydration, ease of application, I experienced no burning or stinging in this area. Finally a power packed product . I highly reccomend this product .
strong odourI wanted to give this product a go after seeing some friends use it but I honestly couldn't get myself past the strong smell. If it had smelt a bit different, I would have been able to give it a go
Product was OKI usually use this in the morning after i have cleansed. At first, the product stung my face a lot and the texture of the cream was really hard to spread around my face. I had to dilute the cream with my moisturiser or another serum for a while until my face got used to it.
I have noticed my skin is brighter but it is hard to tell if it is from this product.
ExcellentI have severe sun spots on my arms and hands I am in my 50's and purchased this to help reduce this pigmentation. I practically bath in SPF 50+ now on my body and face due to this. I've found the Vit C an excellent brightening and clearing agent for my arms and hands lessening the appearance of these sunspots. Only a small amount is needed to go a long way.
I would recommend anyone with sun spots to give it a go.
Didn’t notice muchI’ve always been a big fan of vitamin C product and was really interesting in trying this out as if was such a good price for the product. Unfortunately I didn’t notice much difference after using it compared to other brands. I wouldn’t purchase this again.
Strong and effectiveBeing more matte than the 23% version I had hoped it would be wearable under makeup but experienced pilling. Aside from that I find this product effective but take care to avoid the sides of my nostrils or corners of mouth as the skin can flake and sting. To prevent this I sometimes mix with the buffet serum before applying. I find since using a range of TO my skin is smoother and more healthy looking.
Better than the grainy verisonBeen using this for over a year. I apply it over The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2%. It stings slightly but goes away straight away. Together they seem to minimise any monthly breakouts and skin has never looked better. On the altering nights I use Alpha-H Liquid Gold and will continue to use all 3 products. I tried the grainy sphere version but dint like the feeling on my skin.
Not for me.I used this up a while ago and unfortunately saw no noticeable results from this. My skin texture did feel slightly smoother but everything else pretty much stayed the same.
Wasn’t a fan of the gritty texture and boy did it pill under certain products. I love the rest of the ordinary products but this one was just a downer for me. For reference I am 28 years old, oily sensitive skin with a few PIH spots.
Smells badI'm sure this is a wonderful product but I couldn't get pass the smell so therefore I didn't use it often
LOVE THISI love this product so much, it gives a slight tingle when applied and makes my skin super glowly and lovely. Some other reviews say it does feel quite heavy going on but i personally really like that feeling so even though I have a serum version I actually really like the weight this product gives.
Amazing product!I’ve never had a product that’s made my skin feel this good instantly. As instructed I applied at night and woke up with the smoothest softest skin. I’m a week in and I’m using every second night in combination with 2 other The Ordinary serums so will see the difference in my skin in a month or so. It definitely feels better and looks smoother and brighter already! It does smell a bit weird but that’s no problem.
Good product leaves skin feeling soft and smoothI like the way this product makes me feel the effects of the product instantly with a tingly feeling.
The product feels very smooth and soft but very light on my skin.
Not very pleasant to useI found the thick silicone feel to this mixed with the slight stinging sensation it gives (I don't have sensitive skin and I know this is normal with some vit c products) but together it just made it just feel really unpleasant to use. If it had made a huge difference id maybe keep going but didn't really notice much difference. I'd recommend the 23% suspension with HA spheres instead, that is a winning vit C option in my opinion
GoodYou can feel this product working almost instantly. It is not for sensitive skin and this tingle is quite strong. It left my skin feeling smoother and plumper and brighter than before. Only downside for me is the feeling of the product on my skin.
MehI love the ordinary but I think there might be better vitamin C products out there. This I find pills a little and is hard to layer also is a little grainy. Probably give it a miss next time.
Give this a go!I suffer from adult, hormonal breakouts and whenever I have a flare up I slather this on my face before bed and it works wonder, I use it with the serum and it works amazingly to get rid of redness and stop a flare up. It stings or tingles a bit when you put it on but that’s how you know it’s working. I cannot rave enough about this brand, it’s the only thing that has helped my breakouts and the price is amazing!!
Love the textureI love the texture of this product but only use it a couple of times a week. Its quite strong and can cause a little irritation so I don't use it with any other actives but it gives a great glow. Good to use in morning with a Vit E.
Not a fan of pilingThis does feel nice going onto my face, but I think due to the silicone content, as soon as you put anything on top you get instant piling which is very unpleasant. Will be ditching this is in favour of a vitamin C serum.
LOVE!I LOVE this vit C. I tried using it at night as recommended, but it seemed like too much of a waste of the glow it gives, so now I put it on in the morning and it makes my skin shine from within. There was a bit of stinging with the first few uses, but now nothing at all. I would recommend this product in a heart beat. It goes on super silky smooth and it's like there's a light inside your skin
Great productnice smooth application, has improved my skin tone within a couple of weeks. Unreal for the price. I have spent so much on vitamin C in the past for not as good results. So impressed
Silicone causes pilingReally great cream, a little bit of tingling but I don’t mind it. The biggest let down it that the however the silicone piles! It feels lovely when you first apply it, however you need to apply it quite softly and you can’t even rub the area more then twice without it piling, so I often go to bed with piling :( Other then this my skin when I wake up is very nice and fresh. I will keep using this until it runs out and switch over to the ordinary vitamin C without the silicone. I would only recommend only using a tiny amount for those with sensitive skin
good productI have dry skin and I was looking for something to brighten up my dull skin. I don't really like the feel of this product on, it feels pretty gritty, however, my skin is feeling good and it looks more radiant. I prefer wearing it at night time rather than putting my make up on after it. I feel that it doesn't go on as smoothly after, still a quality product.
Another great product by the ordinary.
A tad too strong for meThis was a tad to string for me, the even after 3 weeks of use it stung very uncomfortably, I seemed to have increased redness due to the irritation. I have used Vitamin C serums in the past so was surprised.
Highly recommended!I have just re-purchased this product after using up Vit C 23% that I found out too gritty with strong tingling feeling after application. I totally prefer Vit C 30% ( not bothered by presents of silicon ), it is smooth, quickly absorbed and seems to be working ( this is my second tube ). My skin is brighter and smoother. Again like Vit C 23% it doesn’t like the HA application before. Saying that - Highly recommended.
Average - still unsure if it does what it is supposed to do.I purchased this product as it appears to have the highest level of Vitamin C, so I assumed the results from using this product nightly would be pretty immediate. I'm still not sure what it is supposed to do... fill out fine lines? Brighten overall skin tone? I personally don't mind the consistency of the product (it is similar to primer) and I didn't experience any extreme tingling. I do let it rest on my face for a few minutes before applying my night cream over it. Haven't noticed any pilling. I don't think I will purchase this again unless I see a dramatic difference by the end of the tube.
Has its pro's and con'sis a great effective vitamin C product, really works to smooth and brighten the complexion, however when i used it with other products is pilled alot, sometimes even when used alone, does sting a little, or alot if youve picked at a pimple or have open skin. a lot is needed to cover the entire face due to the consistency
Silicon an issueI am an avid fan of The Ordinary products and are slowly working my way through their range to create something that works for me. Dull skin is an issue and so was excited to trial this product - and unfortunately, I won't be purchasing again.
I understand that the silicon is needed so that the vitamin C can 'exist' within the product but I really didn't enjoy applying silicon to my face, it felt too much like a cheap primer, and I certainly did not like using a silicon-based product before bed. I feel like The Ordinary have other vitamin C-based products that work to brighten equally as well.
Very GoodLove this product. Feel tingling sensation when I put it on but that's good. My skin is definitely improving, look forward to using it lots.
qualityI like 99% of The Ordinary products. I wanted to try this to brighten up my face and reduce some fine lines. I have used it once weekly since receiving it. It stings a tiny bit, and does slide around into the areas I did not apply it. I use barrier creams around my eyes and mouth for that reason. My skin is absolutely gorgeous the next day!! Will reorder for sure!
Still early daysI’ve only used this product a handful of times, but I can see a change already in the brightness of my skin. It does has a sting too it when using only lasting a few mintues but subsided after a few uses.
Good value but not the best formulaThis is really good value for the ingredient, leaves a bit of a tingling feeling but is not too harsh on the skin - be careful with what you mix it with/what you apply afterwards though! The formula is not the best, but still really good value - you need to use this fairly consistently to see some results + dont forget sunscreen
Definite improvement in my skinI've used this product for about month now in combination with the Buffet and notice a big difference in the texture of my skin. There can be a bit of a sting, but it's not too bad and signals to me that it's working. I use it at night on mature skin which had patches of dryness and uneven tone. I found my skin was really soft and the texture has improved since using it regularly.
Not sure.....This is one of The Ordinary products that I'm not sure about. I find it very oily/greasy on my normal skin. I have resorted to using a small amount in the morning before I go to the gym, on top of the HA + B5. I find it does 'wake up' my face in the morning.
BrighteningTake it from a senior beauty therapist, ALL The Ordinary products are of GREAT value and true cosmeceuticals. This product gives a high dose of vitamin C, it does sting upon application so it is no weakling! Helps to brighten the skin, use at night if stinging is overwhelming. Mix with Resverstrol and it works a dime
Irritating to the skinThis product makes my skin break out and is very irritating. My skin turns red and the pimples stay for around a week after using it. I find it more tolerable when mixing with another moisturizer.
Why haven't I been using this for years!?My skin is now brighter than it has been in years thanks to a nightly dose of this product! I have dry, acne prone skin which has been riddled with scarring and hyperpigmentation for years. I try to keep to a strict routine of mandelic peels to keep my complexion looking bright, but that process has become a second line of defence to this miracle worker. I can't begin to explain how much this has brightened my skin in a matter of a couple of weeks.
The consistency of this is a little tricky to work with given that it doesn't have a lot of slip meaning I use quite a bit of product. However, for the price point I'm not bothered by this at all.
It definitely has a slight sting to it initially, but I have found it very bearable and mostly unnoticeable.
I'm only disappointed I wasn't incorporating vitamin C into my regime earlier!
My skin is close to being Flawless!I am 40 and can say with all honestly my skin is better now than at 30 thanks to 'The Ordinary'. I am using about 5 of their products and they are all showing results. However I believe that it is the 'Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone' has given me the clearest and smoothest skin I've ever had. I have no negatives comments about this product, however I once used an exfoliating mask prior to using the Vitamin C 30%, and the stinging sensation was stronger than normal...but that shows it was working deeper!
Great productHave been using this for sometime now and it feels beautiful on the skin. I do feel I am seeing results from using this.
I am 50/50Due to its grainy texture I was a bit hesitant at first as I felt like it would be harsh on my skin. It stung a teeny bit on application bit that went away after a couple of seconds. I noticed it helped brightening up my face somewhat but upon rubbing in my moisturiser afterwards it started to come off...? Like when you erase something written with a pencil if you know what I mean. I am unsure if it is the combination of the vit c and my clinique moisture surge moisturiser or that it maybe doesn't sit the way it should on my skin. However I am using it every 2 days and have not really seen too much of a difference and only just pat my moisturiser on top of it now
It's really good!Initially I was nervous to try this as my skin can be a bit sensitive. After successfully using some of The Ordinary vitamin C derivatives (Ascorbyl Glucoside and MAP) I was ready to dive in and use the real stuff. I introduced it very slowly and now use it every second morning mixed with two drops of the Resveratrol + Ferulic Acid. I think the combination of these two (as well as the Retinoid i use in the evening) has had the biggest impact on my skin tone and texture. My skin is brighter than ever and I will continue purchasing this product. (P.S. It does tingle at first - but it's really fine - don't be scared!).
Too sensitive to endure the stingThe Vitamin C properties of this product makes my skin sting so severely that I was unable to use. I don't recommend if you are sensitive to Vitamin C. I don't enjoy the graininess and oiliness either.
Day time Vitamin C boostI have combination skin and use this product if I want a day time vitamin C. The texture feels a bit strange when applying it to the face and can sometimes build up on my finger tips - but it definitely works to brighten the skin and reduce dullness. Plus, it is an excellent price!
Great price pointFor the price, this is a great product. Tingles/stings the skin a little on application but otherwise I haven't experienced any irritation. My only advice would be to make sure to wash hands afterwards (if applying with fingers) - I found that after prolonged use, although the product was only beneficial for the skin on my face, it dried out the skin on my fingers where I was using them to apply it and turned them a fake tan-ny orange colour... wash hands!
StrongNot sure about this one. I really want to love it because the finish is actually really nice and smooth. But I feel like it might be burning my skin. Not straight away, but the next day I am very light sensitive, and it almost feels as though the product has something textured in it that is abrasive to my skin. Very strange but I use it quite carefully because of it making my skin very sensitive.
AmazingI love this Vit C product. I am a mature lady with pigmentation starting to appear. I have tried many different Vitamin C products but now I have found this one I will stick with it because I am seeing a real difference. It tingles when it goes on but not unpleasantly and slots into my skincare regime with no problems.
Nice product, but others are betterThis cream has quite a grainy texture, but it absorbs quite quickly. I love using quite a lot of vitamin c though and personally prefer using The Ordinary vit C powder as you can control the amount you mix in, this would be valuable for anyone who has sensitive skin. Overall it's not a bad product but I doubt I'll get it again as I will stick to the powder.
Not sure of its long term effectThis product does make my skin feel smooth after use but ultimately, I hoped it would help with making my skin tone more even (I have mild hyper pigmentation issues) and lighten dark spots but so far, no real noticeable difference here.
It does cause mild irritation around my eyes so be careful when applying to delicate areas.
Less gritty and more spreadable than the 23%I wanted to try this vit.c suspension as the 23% one was difficudifficult to spread, so I had to use a lot unless mixing it in with another serum. This one is way less gritty and spreads evenly, though I don't like the consistency when mixed with my other serum, so I've decided to stick with the 23% suspension and just not use it alone. Effective stuff, though :)
Enjoying this so far!I purchased this product after purchasing the Lonvitalite dermal roller because I did some research and found a vitamin C cream would be perfect to use after rolling. I used this right after rolling and it did sting my face quite a lot but it didn't last long or cause any long lasting irritation.
I only use this once or twice a week after rolling because it is quite intense and my skin is sensitive but since using it my skin has improved and is more radiant.
Next time I may purchase The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% instead of this one because this one does have silicone in it and I want to see how the other one feels on my skin.
Overall I will keep using this and I enjoy it so far!
Unsure...I used this a few times and whilst I like the texture and how smooth my skin feels, it does cause mild irritation on my cheeks. I think my skin is too sensitive for this product which is a shame because I really want a good vit c in my regime.
Very goodIt does leave a slight tingling sensation after use but I actually don't mind it. It does say on the packaging to mix with another moisturer if the tingling sensation is too much. However, I haven't felt the need to do that.
Love the feel of it and love that it leaves my skin looking brighter.
I love thisDespite the mixed reviews, I actually adore the product. I really think that my skin is brighter and more even. Yes, there is a slight stinging sometimes (particularly at the start) but I feel like that’s a sign that it’s working! At such a good price point, how can you go wrong?
Major IrritationI really really wanted to like this. I've been wanting to include vitamin C into my skincare routine for some time now. But this made my skin burn and itch, BAD! I really wanted this to work so I started and stopped using this a number of times hoping that my skin would react better next time but to no avail. My skin was definitely smoother when I was using it but I can't go past how intense the irritation was.
I love so many of The Ordinarys other products but this ones just not for me.
Powerful product that delivers great resultsThis is a great product. I have been using it for over a year and have repurchased it a few times. It has a great price point, and (for me) lives up to all its claims in terms of brightening and anti-aging properties.
Initially after using it, my skin stung a little (around the nose area and lips especially). it is a powerful formulation that your skin gets used to, i would recommend using it a few times before forming an opinion. It does leave a funny kind of pilling on the skin that feels gritty, but that is a small negative in terms of the positives. Overall i love it and continue to recommend to friends and family.
UnderwhelmingUsually I love DECIEM products, however this seems to the lack powerful results I have experienced with some of their other products.
Initially, I REALLY struggled with the product's scent - it left a very metallic-like smell on my hands for a couple of hours. As though I had been holding coins. Unpleasant! However, I seemed to get used to it by the time I finished the tube.
I have combination skin (oily t-zone, dry cheeks) with some minor pigmentation/uneven skin tone. I was hoping this product would give me smoother, even skin. While it does this in the very short-term (post-application for about 12 hours), I can't say I have noticed any long term results.
Overall, I guess at the very low price it is a good starter product if you are interested in trying a Vitamin C treatment for the first time. However, experienced Vitamin C users will find this product does not pack a punch.
Nice product!i really like using this product twice a week. i apply it after cleansing and it makes my skin feel so matte and soft. and i wake up to a brighter more even skintone. i was expecting it to tingle a little bit but it was nothing uncomfortable. i did feel some slight tingling on areas around my active pimples. a little goes a long way with this product so a tube will last ages! and for the price, you cant go wrong.
Not for me..I did not like the texture of this at all and felt it didn't blend into my skin properly. I've used the one without silicone and really liked it. This one, not so much.
Still undecidedI was previously using a Cosmedix vitamin C powder and found it annoying having to mix it into a serum before applying, so I wanted to try this as it reduced that step. I have only been using it for one week and haven't noticed any difference to my skin as yet, but it otherwise feels great to apply, sits well under makeup and smells fine. Even if it isn't particularly successful, it's still a great price.
Nice productThis is a nice product and does brighten the skin. Good price. My only tip would be to use a small amount (pea size). If you use too much it can sting a little bit.
Makes skin look fresh, smooth, and vibrant.I purchased this as an alternative to the Body Shops, Vitamin C Skin Boost. It works just as well and at a third of the price! It also doesnt have an overwelming citrus smell, I'm not a big fan of smelling like an orange peel, so thats great for me. It works great as a primer I use it every day, even if not wearing makeup.One pump of this beauty and I am set. Skin that looks fresh, smooth, and vibrant. Leaves my skin looking and feeling fantastic!
Interesting product, great results!Great product at a great price point. Helped brighten my skin and help with skin texture and pigmentation. The only negatives are that it does sting/tingle (especially around the nose or broken skin), and leaves some "skin pilling" on top of the skin (i just wipe it off with a face wipe after).
I keep coming back to this!The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone is the first vitamin C treatment I have tried. After getting to the end of my first bottle, I tried a few others to compare. None of them held a candle to The Ordinary. I have sensitive skin and do feel a slight tingle when I use this, but this lasts just a few seconds. If I have been adhering to my full morning & night routine, I don't feel any sensation at all. I particularly like the silicone formulation - I follow it with my moisturiser/sunscreen in the morning and finds that it gives a good base for my primer. I highly recommend this product.
Love itI purchased this after trying the ordinary vitamin c suspension with HA spheres, but not loving the texture of the spheres- this product is much better- same fantastic results, smooth skin, and I have some acne scars that I can see being smoothed out
EffectiveI have now tried three of the ordinary's vitamin c options, with my favourite being the Magnesium ascorbyl phosophate 10. This silicone option delivers noticeable results, and i haven't experienced any adverse reactions - i have sensitive skin prone to redness, but have already built up a vitamin c tolerance after using the ordinary's products for about 6 months. The silicone base feels much better on the skin than the 23% + HA option, however you seem to need more of it.
While it's a great product at a good price, after all my experimenting I'll be sticking with the Magnesium ascorbyl phosophate 10% - a bit more expensive but spreads the best, fees the best and delivers just as effective results.
I like the textureThe silicone base gives this a really nice matte texture. I have actually found it helps control my oily skin. I havn't seen a reduction in pigmentation as yet, but I am happy to persist as it's only been 3 weeks of daily use. The tingling went away after 3-4 days
Brighter skinI really like this product and have enjoyed the benefits. I was using in the evenings but noticed it was staining my pillow case so have swapped to mornings. It actually helps reduce my t-zone shine too!
AmazingThis product is amazing and has really brightened up my face. It always seems to be sold out so I tried the other vitamin c once (vitamin c 23% with HA spheres) and it burnt my face and stung for a whole 24 hours even after washing off).
This is the bomb. I will continue to buy! You have a customer for life.
Not for my skinI really wanted to love this, as it did make my skin look brighter and just better, but it came along with serious breakouts and blackheads ! Im not sensitive to silicone, or vitamin c so I tried to give the benefit of the doubt, but after a weeks use I had to stop. I had so many blackheads, and deep pimples which have left marks.
I Can see how it would work for the right skin, but of you have previously had acne other than hormonal be very careful !
AmazingI use this every second night as part of my routine and this product has changed my life! I’m in my early 30’s and starting to get tired and dull looking skin (from years of being an insomniac and a mum of 3). After the first application I seen a difference. My skin is more even in colour and a lot brighter. I have tried expensive to sum expensive products over the years and none of them work like this one. Highly recommend and I will keep purchasing.
Brighter skinThis product is wonderful. I have fair, sensitive skin and this has definitely helped with pigmentation and dark spots. I used to use the other vitamin C product from The Ordinary but i like the feel of this one better. It is much less gritty and feels smoother on the skin. Can be applied AM and PM and works well under make-up. Great product!
Great productI was using the other vitamin c one from the ordinary but found it quite gritty and it use to sting a lot. This one is awesome plus it contains silicone so I can easily wear it under my makeup n it acts as a primer the results can be seen within few weeks of use im impressed :)
Clearer brighter skinI’m nearly 44 and a mother of 4 so my skin has been starting to look a little tired. I’ve been using The ordinary products for a few months and loving the difference but the addition of this product has been amazing. After only 2 weeks of using it twice a week my skin is so much lighter, brighter and more youthful looking. I’ve had fraxel laser with not as great results as this product. It does sting quite a bit on application but settles after about 20 mins. Worth the sting though!! Happy customer!!!
So far so goodI bought a few The Ordinary products after hearing the great reviews and at $12.80 I must say that I'm a fan. I use this on my shoulders where I had a lot of freckles and have noticed they've slowly started to fade. The fact this is always sold out speaks volumes
