CLAIM TO FAME: A concentrated serum with purified alpha arbutin and hyaluronic acid to brighten and even out skin tone

PERFECT FOR: Hyper-pigmented, blemished, acne-prone skin

”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.”

This serum is AMAZING!! The packaging is perfect and the dropper works very well. This serum goes on very smooth and absorbs quickly. It doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy, oily or tacky. I've been using this for a little over a week and I can already see huge improvements to my skin. My complexion has evened out significantly and almost all of the redness on my face is gone. My face is super hydrated from this serum and my skin feels much more plump.15 days ago
I received a tampered dropper. You didn’t bother to check the item first before sending it? I hope the quality isn’t compromised or oxidized due to air exposure. Please do check it next time as we are paying so much for this and trusted your site. Thank you. Hoping my next items will arrive in very good conditions.about 1 month ago
This is the first product i tried from The Ordinary line and at first I was giddy excited because I guess I expected a lot from it. Packaging is pretty and minimalistic and product is easy to blend onto skin. But I gave it only three stars because first, it runs out pretty quickly. I only use two drops on my face at night and it barely lasted me a month. Second, didnt really see much of a difference after a month of usage.about 1 month ago
This product is a not much for me, like i dont see any difference when i use it alone but it’s on my list so I still use it together with azelaic and niacinamide. I also put this to my husbands face he loves it tho, so yeah we have different opinion about thisabout 2 months ago
I have been using this product for two months now and it actually works! You just have to be patient for the results. It is a bit pricey but you won’t regret buying a product that works, right? 😉 Also, it works well with the Niacinamide product of The Ordinary too.about 2 months ago
Used the bottle half way, i only apply this every night after cosrx toner. I bought this expecting to correct the dullness but i see no difference with regards to glowing/brightner skintone BUT my pores especially on the Tzone area i visibly minimized! Tho still expecting for that glow 😂2 months ago
