CLAIM TO FAME: A brightening hydrator with stabilized vitamin C derivative

FAST FACTS: Delivers 10% pure magnesium ascorbyl phosphate (MAP), a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C; provides specific skin brightening benefits, more so than other derivatives of vitamin C; helps effectively reduce signs of skin aging; features a pH level of 6.50 to 7.50; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain alcohol and nut

PERFECT FOR: Illuminating dull, spotty, aging skin

October 9, 2017
”I actually was really surprised by its moisturizing effects. I bought it mainly for brightening and scar fading, so didn’t expect too much about the texture or whether it hydrates my skin or not. I was just going to use it as a serum. I’m currently using Retin-A at night so my used-to-be combination skin becomes dry skin overall. The first time I used it in the morning, I apply toner, Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, then this MAP. I thought I need to lay one more layer of moisturizer, but no, my skin already felt so moist and plump. I can just put on some sunscreen and head out. I’m pleasantly surprised. This becomes my daily morning routine. Btw, it also goes well with makeup, whether it be BB cream or foundation.”

Not for me :(

I used this for almost 3 weeks, and yes I did noticed that my acne marks are slowly fading. However, it gives me tiny bumps around my jaw area. Plus I hate how it smells! It smells like rubber. And I think its still better to use Vitamin C rather than some derivatives.

I used this for a couple of days and i already saw instant effect on my face. My face felt moisturized,supple and a lot brighter! i also noticed lesser breakouts for some reason when i was using this product. It also helps lighten my acne/pimple marks a little. Will definitely try this product again :)

Niacinamide + MAP = ❤

i have been using this product for about 2 months now and i'm loving the results. as stated above, pairing this w/ niacinamide is just a perfect combo for my skin. my face was quite burnt from my summer beach outings, but this quickly brightened my face and healed my burnt skin. i use this as a moisturizer in the evenings and wake up w/ plump skin in the morning. i definitely give this credit for my acne scars lightening. results may take a while, but be patient and listen to what your skin needs and keep your routine simple. trust me, your skin will thank you for it. 😘❤

One of my faves from The Ordinary!

I use this with Niacinamide and I love the skin brightening effect of these two combined! You may not notice it immediately but I used this consistently, and now my pimple marks are almost gone & my skin looks lighter! I’m less oily too! It’s okay to use even under make up. I love this!

Good product

I'm quite happy with this product. I use it with TO niacinamide and they work wonderfuly together. The smell is a bit off but it's tolerable. But i think i'll just empty this one and see what happens if i don't include it in my skin care routine cause right now my skin is doing really good. I get less breakouts and it makes me happy :)

Wow 💖💖💖💖💖

I have been using this for almost a week now and girrrrrl... This one is the bomb! I adore the brightening effect and the lightening effect for my scars. I see significant amount of change in my acne scars a.k.a. PIH. I use this every morning before my sunscreen. I will definitely repurchase. I give this 5 hearts and 5 stars. Buy this if you have stubborn PIH! This works.
