”So I have been using this for about a month now… and I use it in conjunction with the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%… and I was skeptical… but my hyperpigmentation (that was caused by acne) has decreased, my skin feels so much smoother, softer, and it almost feels like more youthful. The only downside is that it has the ability to leave a sticky feeling, but that doesn’t deter me from using it. I have really enjoyed this product and will reproduce.”

Satisfied buyer!🖤

It’s been a week since I started using this together with the Rose Hip Seed Oil (at night) and I really loved it!! I heard a lot of good feedbacks about The Ordinary products so why not give it a try and it didn’t disappoint me! Hoping that these blemishes I have will soon be gone by continuously applying this on my face. Looking forward to the result! Can’t wait! Thank you BeautyMNL, I will definitely replenish this item!

I used this product twice a day; morning and evening for 2months. At first, it has a little sting but my face got used to it and it has a slighty burning sensation when you apply too much. It's sticky and it needs a few minutes to dry or be absorbed by my skin. It doesn't really lighten my pimple marks, but it does help my skin to be plump. And also what's nice about this is my face doesn't feel and look oily after applying.

Two stars because during the first few days of using it, I can notice naman the brightening effect. But after a few days, I start getting new pimples. I was using this with TO’s Niacinamide and it worked really well for me then I’ve bought this because I wanted to speed up the process of lightening my acne marks, but unfortunately my skin doesn’t really like it. I tried to stop using it for quite some time and when I came back to using it, it still gives me pimples after like 2-3 days of using. I also tried using this alone w/o the niacinamide. But still, no... Sayang because it’s expensive.

Fast Delivery. Legit Product

I ordered this item on weekend and itwas delivered day after. I had executed patch test, it seems like these product works for me. Looking forward to a positive results and will order again. I applied Alpha Arbutin on a dry clean face and followed by Niacinamide. It may be sticky at first but when it dry, it will give you smooth texture skin. I believe this will also lessen the oil on my face.
