Most Helpful Criticism

Does not live up to the hype.
I have heard exceptional things about this item and unfortunately it has not done anything for my skin. I bought this product to help lighten my acne scars, but...
  1. Broke me out!

    I am so disappointed with this product. I was expecting great things from it but instead I end up with really bad breakouts and congestion on my forehead.

    I used this in the morning, diluted with snail essence without niacinamide. I wait for 20-30 mins before continuing with my routine but after using this for a few months, discontinuing it, then using it again, I can safely say that this product did me more harm than good.

    It didn't brighten my skin or do any of that. Instead, I ended up with rough, raised bumps on my cheeks, around my nose and on my forehead.

    I've used Vitamin C in the past with no issues. I've also used about a quarter of the spatula provided.

    I'd be careful with this product if your skin type is dry/dehydrated, sensitive.
  2. Brightening

    I mix this with The Ordinary "Buffet" at night twice a week and it visibly evens and brightens my skin tone by next morning. It is a great boost to add to your evening regime, but I'd recommend starting with half a scoop at first - I started with a whole scoop and it was a bit stingy! But once you get the amount right you're in for a treat.
  3. It works

    Definitely seeing my skin brightening and pigmentation disappearing. I add one scoop to my moisturiser of a night.
  4. Great product at a low cost

    It can be mixed with almost anything and it’s super effective, it really has made my skin come to life over these past few months
  5. Super usable and effective

    This powder is the most affordable Vitamin C powder I've seen, and it appears to be just as effective as other. So easy to use, I just add it to my night face oil.
  6. Very effective

    A very effective brightener - just add a level scoop to your moisturiser.
    A little bit goes a long way - careful not to use a heaped scoop or it will sting.
  7. Seeing good results with time!

    My skin has acne, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and redness.

    My main concern is to get rid of the acne, acne like spots or scars etc. I was a bit hesitant as I am quite time poor but it’s so effective it’s worth the extra few minutes to get the combination right. I feel my skin always looks really bright the next day!!
  8. Wow!

    I bought this product out of curiosity, and I am SO glad! I’ve only been using it a week and already I can notice a difference.. I wore my make up for 24 hours the other day, and usually I would wake up with pimples and spots all over.. but I have been mixing this powder in with my moisturiser before applying any primer or make up, and I found ever after washing off all of my make up my skin was so smooth and even! I can’t believe it! It creates a solid barrier on the skin and hydrates it effectively. And for this price you really cannot go wrong!
  9. Wow!

    I’m 45 with freckles so I’m using this in the hope it evens my skin tone and reduces lines. My skin care routine with The Ordinary is morning: Marine Hyaluronics, Buffet (mixed with 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder every 2nd day), Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% (morning routine). For night I use Marine Hyaluronics, Buffet and alternate between The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane replacing these once a week with Matrixyl 10% + HA. With this routine, I’ve most definitely seen a huge difference in my skin. It’s hydrated, brighter and more evened toned. This is only after 2 months. For the price of these products, I’m amazed! My only suggestion for The Ordinary is to have more comprehensive guides as to what products to use together and simpler product names. It’s really hard to navigate all of their products and a lot of the names sound similar. That’s why I posted this routine as I find it works for me. Make sure you follow the advice and where a good sunscreen in the day as well.
  10. No brainer

    A no brainer, best Vitamin C powder I’ve used and a fantastic price. Gives your skin a nice glow!

    I was using another brand of Vitamin C powder and find The Ordinary’s version is finer and whiter.

    Doesn’t sting like some Vitamin C product. I find half a scoop works best as a full scoop is too much.
  11. Best Vit C

    I love this product! If you're new to using actives go steady on this. It might sting and itch a little until you build up tolerance but stick with it. I use a full scoop mixed with the Ordinary moisturizer nightly and have noticed a big difference over time with pigmentation. Just make sure you keep the lid closed tight and don't get the container wet because it will oxidize and go hard and lose its potency!
  12. Follow up after a Month of use

    I bought this product a month ago to combat the hyperpigmentation and redness I have from some old acne. I didn't see any huge difference in appearance the first week (though it had made it the smoothest it's ever been), now happy to report that my redness has very much diminished! I find this stings less than the spheres with HA product, cause I mix it with a mattifying moisturizer.
  13. VitC all rounder

    I love this product, not only can it be added to just about any other skincare product for an extra boost but it can be applied directly onto any blemish eradicating it almost overnight. Gives healthy colour to my complexion and an almost flawless finish.
  14. Value for Money

    Excellent value for money with this product. I bought a much more expensive one, with less in it, before the Ordinary released theirs. Super happy with this, I mix a little into my serum or moisturiser. It lasts for ages, and the light sensitive packaging ensures it doesn't degrade too swiftly. Once I get through it, I will absolutely be repurchasing.
  15. LIFESAVER

    I got slack with skincare for a while because I actually accidentally mixed too much of this into something and for chemical burnt haha so you only have to use the SMALLEST amount, but if you get it right, it works. I have super obvious dark hyperpigmentation around my mouth that makes me look like I have a bit of a mustache and this cleared it right up! I mix it into a watery toner and follow it with hyaluronic acid and a moisturiser. I find that it makes my moisturiser sticky if I mix it in with that, but a watery toner mixes so well. It really has saved my skin and I'm confident to not wear makeup again!!!
  16. A bit fiddly but worth the effort

    I bought this product after a beauty therapist recommend I purchase a vit c serum to help with post pregnancy pigmentation. I mix it with The Ordinary “Buffet” serum and it has certainly helped brighten my skin tone. Worth the effort if you are looking for an affordable Vit C serum!
  17. Vitamin C

    Love love love this stuff! I actually quite like the process of having to mix it into another product.
    I use this every second night, and mix it into my Sukin moisturiser.
    My skin looks brighter, and my complexion has really improved!
    Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly after using it though! My nails went a bit orange from mixing it with my fingers, so now I just use the end of a makeup brush to mix it in the palm of my hand.
  18. A little tricky but much better than the other antioxidant solutions I've tried!!

    I have some hyperpigmentation from old acne on my cheeks and have been looking for something to help combat the redness leading up to my wedding day. I wanted something potent and that was shelf stable to add to my collection for use every other day (not for daily use) and yes, it's a bit trickier to use than a bit C serum or lotion but it's very effective! I mix it in with a basic moisturizer and put it on just before I go to bed. Just be prepared, it tingles a bit so best to sort of start with smaller doses and then step up as your skin gets used it it :)
  19. Amazing!

    I have combination skin. Not prone to break outs but have large pores! This product is amazing. First time i use it pm, i add it on my moisturiser, when i wake up i love my skin... it’s glowing, plump and smooth! I also add this on my body lotion and smoothens my skin. But be careful as it stains on clothes your wearing and on your bed. But my skin is loving it! With my pores it helps to tighten my pores but that is after finishing one bottle. Im on my 3rd bottle. Will definitely buy again as long as it’s available!
  20. Nice product

    Wasn't sure if I'd like thus but I'm impressed so far.
