CLAIM TO FAME: A stable suspension of 30% pure l-ascorbic acid in light silicones

FAST FACTS: Helps reverse multiple signs of skin aging with vitamin C, an effective antioxidant; naturally brightens and refines tone and texture; feels smooth on the skin thanks to very light silicones despite the suspension format of the formulation; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain water, alcohol, oil, nut, gluten, and soy

PERFECT FOR: Spotty, dull, rough skin

”I absolutely love this product! It has become a staple in my skincare routine replacing the original Vitamin C. The consistency is definitely different than the Vit C 23%, the formula feels thicker, but once applied to the skin it has an extremely light/airy feeling and goes on very matte. It instantly minimizes my pores making them look pretty much non-existent (some morning my skin looks airbrushed because my pores are reduced so much). I use this product in conjunction with the Resveratrol and together they are a dream team. I have extremely sensitive and dry skin and have not had any irritation or breakouts occur. There is at times an immediate stinging sensation, but it goes away after a few seconds. Overall, this product has left my skin feeling baby soft and with the most even complexion I could dream of! Another amazing product by The Ordinary!”

”Really like this product. I wear it during the day and it leaves my skin super smooth and ready for makeup. My skin looks brighter and I have been using this product for about a month now.”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone
INGREDIENTS: Dimethicone, Ascorbic Acid, Polysilicone-11, PEG-10 Dimethicone

Formulations are updated from time to time as part of our commitment to innovation. As such, the ingredient list shown here may vary from the box of the product depending on time and region of purchase.

Apply a small amount to face in the AM or the PM (PM preferred). A tingling sensation can be expected after application. If this sensation is too strong, this formula can be diluted on each application with your favourite serum or cream.

Note: The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically. With such format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin’s tolerance to such high exposure is elevated. If the sensation is too strong to tolerate, the formula can be mixed on each application with other creams or serums of your preference.

Stinging when applied

I experienced some stinging feeling when I applied this the first time. I've used it for my nighttime skincare routine for a while now but I can't tell if there's a difference. It's supposed to help remove some blemishes on your face but other products have worked better and faster than this.

I waitlisted this item and i think it took almost 3weeks to 1month before it became available. But all I can say is that the wait was worth it!! I saw the improvement on my skin, the pimples spots lighten within 1-2weeks. They were right when they said it tingles upon using, but it doesn't take long. Mostly like 10-15 seconds. I absolutely adore this producrt. The ordinary products are very compatibke with my skin, and will definitely purchase more in the future

Even skin!

I really like this vitamin c product and the Ordinary products in tubes because the packaging is easy to squeeze and control how much comes out. I’ve only used this a year times but it hasn’t broke me out or made my face red. There is a slight tingle when I put it on but nothing uncomfortable. The price is amazing too.

Minimal effect

Searching for the right brand for Vitamin C is hard. LOL. I had to try this one because of all the good reviews i read everywhere. There are bad reviews too but they were minimal. Like my review, i’m gonna say this had minimal effect on me. Probably would not repurchase.

Gives me instant glow!

This is one of thee best Vitamin C serums out there! The texture might takes time getting used to but it gives me instant brightening. I use this at night on top of my The Ordinary moisturizer and I get very glowy and bright skin the next day! The great thing about it is it has 30% potency which you rarely see in other Vitamin C serums. It is very potent hence I use a very tiny amount and dilute it with my moisturizer because this baby is strong!

my perfect matte

I am a user of The Ordinary glycolic acid 7% solution and since i vowed to give their other products a try, i started with this one. I think it's a bit pricey for its size but i've read that vitamin c oxides fast so most of them really come in small packages. When i apply it on my face, it gets absorbs easily by my skin and it has a matte, fresh looking finish. I just feel a little bit of sting which disappears immediately. Glycolic acid is still my number one, will try another product from them soon!!
