This product really works and I do genuinely love it, but with two caveats: 1) it’s fiddly to use, so I don’t use it as often as I would like and 2) it is quite a harsh product and will stain hands orange!
Most Helpful Criticism
Didn’t work for me
Bad packaging as it oxydises quickly. Burned the crap out of my skin and I usually don’t have issues with vitamin c. Didn’t notice an improvement. But it is really cheap so that’s a plus!
Great but fiddly.This product really works and I do genuinely love it, but with two caveats: 1) it’s fiddly to use, so I don’t use it as often as I would like and 2) it is quite a harsh product and will stain hands orange!
Love thisThis product in the powder form is great if you don't want to add more liquid onto your skin (if it's say- oily like mine)
Just be careful when you measure it that you don't breathe too close and inhale it. it is very fine.
Great results, gentle tingle. I use at bedtime so it have plenty of time to absorb and work it's magic. remember your skin will be a little sensitive with it in sunlight so do use a sunscreen
Excellent value, high potency Vitamin CI love that I can mix this product with my normal moisturiser for a boost in vitamin c. A little goes a long way so by far my favorite Vitamin C product on the market!
Great product, great priceI have been using this product since it came out and it’s wonderful. It’s not only very affordable but it lasts and you can mix it with a variety of other skin products. I definitely recommend it
Awesomei use it with my moisturiser at night and i wake up with a radiant clear complexion rather than oily and acne everywhere, highly recommend
So cheap and lasts foreverThis is a great way to add vit c to your skin care routine. It turns an ordinary moisturiser into a treatment by just adding a little scoop.
AmazingThis is the best vitamin c for my skin. I has helped with so many issues - pigmentation, complexion, brightness, health of my skin, etc. Will buy again
Love Love Love!I use this product every second morning with a serum and it really helps brighten my complexion during the winter months! I made the mistake of using a bit too much initially (I was new to the vitamin C game) and it stung quite a bit, but after reducing it to a small amount it works like a charm!
Loving itI love vitamin C to brighten and hydrate my skin, I apply the serum I make using the L-ascorbic Acid Powder mornings and nights and my skin is soft, bright and well hydrated. Will purchase again.
Love it!I have pigmentation on my face, and this product used twice a week has really helped. I started off using the suspension product, but now I have introduced this one into the routine too. It does tingle and you might feel like that’s unusual, however I love that feeling as I can feel it penetrating my skin and doing its job.
For someone who suffers from dark spots or pigmentation, I highly recommend using this and the Vit C products from TO.
Great priceGreat price for a vitamin c powder if you want to mix your own treatments. Just be careful and read up on how much to use. You only need the tiniest amount
Not so impressedI've read so many reviews about how much people loved this and how easy it was to mix it into other products. But for me I haven't noticed much of a difference with my skin and I hate the grainy residue it leaves on my face. It could be the products I'm mixing it into or how much I'm using but it just never seemed to dissolved completely.
Effective delivery of Vit CI think this is the best way to ensure Vitamin C doesn't get oxidised by delivering it in a powder form. I have been using this for more than 6 months. I mix a teaspoon (a mini spoon comes with the product).with hyalouronic acid or mosturiser after washing my face in the morning. I do think that my skin is radiant and glowing from using this. Highly recommended!
DIY skincare!Vitamin C isn't very stable when it's in contact with air or light. This product avoids this by activating only the amount you need which is genius! I feel it isn't as effective as I hope which could be the company having to sacrifice quality to make it in powder form.
Big Results for a Small PriceLove this Vitamin C powder!
I have used the same product in Skinstitut & other brands & found that they always irritated my skin & flared up my rosacea.
This one is great, it is effective yet gentle.
Has approved & reduced some of my acne scarring, makes my skin look more clarified & even toned & is even helping to reduce my pore size! BONUS!
The only thing I would suggest is to make sure you use just a small amount - about one quarter to half a scoop & mix it into your serum or moisturiser really well so you can't see the powder anymore before you apply to your face.
My favourite to mix it with is TO's Buffet + HA serum.
In the mornings I follow this mixture with my BB cream & other makeup products & in the evening I simply follow this up with TO Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA.
I went a few months without using & have just recevied it again recently & I am already noticing a big improvement in my skin!
Really goodI have been mixing this product with Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel every morning and have noticed changes to my skin within a week. I have mild acne scarring on my cheeks and this has appeared to improve. My skin also looks more luminous. Really happy and would recommend.
good for brighteningHelped to even out my skin tone and make my face look brighter and less dull. It is annoying that it comes in a powder form and it can be a bit messy but the results are worth it.
Absolutely loveThis product is amazing as you can mix it with almost anything! It has made my acne scars less visible and improved my overall complexion in just weeks.
Useful productThis is such an interesting and useful product! I like to mix it in with The Ordinary’s Buffet Serum and spread it on my face and décolletage, but it can be mixed with your Moisturiser or any other Serum. I also mix it in with my hand cream at night. Start off with a very tiny amount though, as using too much can really sting your face and neck. I don’t know how evenly the vitamin C powder is distributed through the Serum when you mix it in, but I guess if you use it regularly, over a few days your entire face would eventually receive some vitamin C.
Makes my skin feel smootherSeems to make my skin feel a lot smoother. Hasnt done much for the tone of my skin though. Jar lasts a long time.
Great for acne scarsBought this for my daughter to use on her mild acne scars with low expectations to be honest. I mixed a small amount in water and applied it to her skin not expecting anything to happen. It immediately brightened her complexion and her scars are fading with daily use. Pretty amazing for how cheap this product is. She has had no negative reaction to it at all, no burning or stinging etc. Definitely worth a try and will be buying again.
YessssThis is so good. Makes my skin smoother and glowy after one use. Haven't seen a huge reduction in my red acne scarring however i'm very pale so i don't know if anything will help that.
Yes Yes YesOMG why did I wait so long to purchase? After using this product (every other week for a full week) I always find my skin brighter the next day, my acne scarring has lightened tremendously fast - I have been using it in conjunction with another of their products the Azelaic Acid and it has been a dream combo. Vitamin C in powder form is great as you know it’s always fresh, but this does have an expiry date of 6 months - still very affordable though.
AmazingI use this product when my skin gets dull and needs some extra glow and radiance. Super affordable as well
the product is good but maybe can improve on the package?Ok I have used the similar vitamin C powder from other brand to mix with your lotion and serum so bought this to give it a go. I loved the price. It found the jar is a bit hard to use. No spoon or spatula in it. You need to be careful when dispensing. I mixed with the Ordinary serum or moisturizer at night. Maybe not good to be used in AM under makeup but it is up to you. Hope this will help lighten my pigmentations.
Love itI have combination/acne prone skin. This powder brightened my complexion and even out my skin tone. I always use it in the morning with my moisturiser. Definitely repurchase.
Noticeable results for a $10 product!Although it does oxidise pretty fast, the results are worth it! I love mixing this with my serum at night and it has noticeably brightened my complexion. I’m also noticing an improvement in texture.
AMAZINGThis product is a must have!! you receive a cute little scoop and the tingling feeling is minimal. I use it daily (about a quarter of a scoop each use and I mix it in the palm of my hand) as it helps shrink the appearance of my pores and with uneven skin tone.
I have used at night with copper peptide however I mostly use in the mornings with an emu oil/vitamin e cream. I will never not buy this product and would recommend to anyone.
Love this productGreat price, great product - comes with a tiny little spoon to make application easy.
I mix it with some cold pressed argan oil from the same company as part of my morning routine (I use organ oil as I figure the high vitamin E content will help keep the ascorbic acid stable for longer). I apply to a clean face, let it work for an hour and then top with Essano rosehip oil spf 15. You can really feel the ascorbic acid tingle as it goes to work - it is far more effective than any serum I have bought at a much higher price. My skin is brighter, tone is evening out and my smaller wrinkles are starting to disappear after only a week. I have dry/mature skin with some sun damage.
Active cThis is my 2nd bottle. I mixed it with facial cleanser everyday or sometime mixed with face cream. It helps with my uneven skin tone. I also noticed that my face look brighter.
So easy for fab resultsI mix this with either a basic moisturiser or a nice hydrating serum and the results are For. Real. Can be grainy under makeup so I prefer to use on non makeup days or at night.
AMAZING!I wanted to incorporate vitamin C into my routine, but the Vitamin C suspension 23% + HA spheres 2% would form a film on my face that blocked my pores a bit. I bought this product instead and it's amazing! The powder is very finely milled and mixes perfectly with oils and serums. It causes very mild tingling on the face, but don't burn. I mix this with the Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% to make a (somewhat) dupe for the 'Skinceuticals C E' serum.
Works really wellI love the ordinary. This makes my skin more even, smooth, toned, and soft! An amazing product for the price and lasted a fair while considering the size of the bottle!
Great for night timeThis powder feels nice and tingly and leaves my skin feeling glowy in the morning. I mix it with my night time moisturiser. I tried to use it with serum during the day but I find it always leaves a little of bit of grit so I stick to using it at night.
great product!ive been using this product for about a week now, i have noticed my skin is alot more hydrated and glowy. i mix a full scoop into my night cream each night. really good product for only $10!!
Very effectiveThis mixes great with my moisturizer (unless I add too much, then I end up with white streaks on my face). It makes my face tingle, but in a good way. I really think it brightens my skin. My one complaint would be that the screw top of the one I got is really difficult to get back on - it keeps getting stuck and I'm worried someday I'm going to end up with white powder all over the room!
Didn’t work for meBad packaging as it oxydises quickly. Burned the crap out of my skin and I usually don’t have issues with vitamin c. Didn’t notice an improvement. But it is really cheap so that’s a plus!
in addition to exploring, when you add it to the creams it becomes of a more dense and velvety consistency
Works perfectlyI mix this in with The Ordinary Matrixyl and my skin loves it. I only use about half a scoop as more than that tends to give me some pilling, when I apply anything else over the top. You cannot go wrong with the price!
Great size and works!I bought this to try on my freckles and it is so good. I mix it with a retinol cream in the evenings. The packaging keeps the powder in, it is mess-free and a great price for a good quality powder. Would recommend!
LoveI use this vitamin C powder with The Ordinary Buffet Serum at Night & then Ordinary Moisture HA Cream. I’m 60 & have great skin but it’s even brighter, tighter doing this regime. Love it Love The Ordinary.
love!I use this daily with the philosophy ultimate miracle worker moisturiser and omg! I won't use another brand of vitamin c after using this.
Made me break out!My skin is usually pretty good, thanks to the Buffet and Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2%, but this made me break out in the worst blind pimples and bumps all over my chin, around my nose and on my forehead. Still trying to get rid of them since stopping using it over a week ago :’(
GreatI add this to my sunscreen to give a little extra glow, overall a great product and price but I did find the powder frustrating to use so its probably not for me.
LoveThis is the best - love the fact you can mix with serum or any complementary product. Brightens my skin. Lasts a long time and the price is very reasonable.
GoodHave been using this product for around a week. At first I found it difficult to work out what to mix it with as ALL my serums contained Niacinamide, which this can't be mixed with. I've ended up simply mixing it with water and applying it that way, which seems to work also. I don't personally find having to mix it every night annoying, as it only takes 20 seconds or so, especially when you consider that it has the benefit of being less prone to breaking down and becoming useless as liquid vitamin C is. Overall I haven't seen too much of a difference in my skin, however it's only been a week, so I'm looking forward to the results. This also hasn't caused my skin any problems, which is good as I have very sensitive skin.
Great product for vitamin c addition in your skin careOut of all the vitamin c skin care I’ve used this is the best due to it’s versatility. I use half a scoop mixed with my usual moisturiser once or twice a week.
GreatI use this a few times a week at night. It's a super gentle AHA that really brightens your skin.
Vitamin C powder worth a tryThis is a nicely milled fine vitamin C powder which I mix in with one of the Ordinary moisturizers. It is not an everyday product for me, as the scooping of powder using the little spoon and mixing it into a moisturizer takes some time, although the results are great and my skin feels glowy after use. Definitely worth a go if you are not in a rush in the morning. I would recommend this product, however for ease of use, I usually stick with liquid forms of Vitamin C.
Great addition to your beauty arsenalI love this product. I use half a scoop at night mixed with 3 drops of the Resveratol and Ferulic Acid and my skin is glowing. I've had no breakouts or sensitivity with it which my skin is normally prone to. I highly recommend this.
Very effectiveThis is my favourite Vitamin C product to date. Really tingles when it's going on so I know it's working! Incredibly finely milled powder, I usually mix it in with my Buffet serum and it goes on well. Occasionally leaves white powdery residue if I've used a lot but melts in as soon as I add a second serum or moisturiser over the top. Little tub lasts for months. I've definitely noticed less pigmentation on my cheeks. I got this for my sister who has very combination skin and within 2 weeks she was getting lots of compliments about being glowy.
IncredibleIncredible product that truly works. After about a week of use my skin was absolutely glowing and pigmentation definitely reduced! Amazing product that actually works and such a great price
Pleased with the resultsPleased with the results but it is a bit annoying to use because of the mixing factor and trying to figure out what to mix it with. But it does make my skin very soft. Only a mild tingling sensation too.
i love this stuffi mix this into any moisturiser or serum, does get ball up (not sure if its the amount i use) if you use too much so i just stick to using it at night, usually mix into my ordinary hylauronic acid 2% & b5 serum or buffet serum. noticed a differenced within 2 weeks of using that my pigmentation on cheeks was disappearing and my skin was glowing and more even. everyone needs this!!
It works...It makes my skin look visibly brighter, but it stings a bit upon application especially if you exfoliate before you put this on...
OMG Best Vitamin C PowderWow. I have used VERY expensive vitamin c serums, lotions, you name it. I've used everything from serums with "evidence" amount of Vitamin C to lotions with 20% vitamin c in it and NOTHING compares to this powder from the ordinary. Wow. It transforms ANY of your other serums into powerhouse serums.
I mix this with either The Ordinary rose oil or resveratrol or hyaluronic + b5. My skin is so soft and glowing. Fine lines gone. So obsessed.
Cost effective and greatSwitched from skinstituts version. It's not as finally milled. However half the price. Use with TO ferulic reservatrol. Amazing. I don't mind the fragrance.
Plump dewy skinI’ve only used this for about a week. I got it for antioxidant preventative purposes. So far skin feels more plump and hydrated. I use it with the buffet in the morning. I heard this will help with my pigmentation so hope to see some more exciting results in a few weeks.
Don't really like itI think this product is a little too harsh on my skin. I've used multiple vitamin c serums and powders but this one hurt my skin. If you have sensitive skin then just be careful with it. Less is definitely more.
This is the real dealI’ve used a lot of vitamin c trying to get rid of my Queensland sun lover melasma and pigmentations. But this stuff is potent! After only a week my skin is looking more even and lighter!
Effective but annoyingI use this with Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3%, as recommended. It noticeably reduces redness and general skin appearance but it annoying/ hard to use. I have been given different advice for The Ordinary regarding what it can be mixed with (I am under the impression that buffet has been taken off the list of things it can be mixed with) and it leaves a very unpleasant odors on my hands which serious scrubbing can't remove.
A lifesaver for reducing pigmentationI'd done a significant amount of research on Vit C in serums and its notorious instability, so I wanted to opt for a powder to extend its shelf life and combine it with my already extensive collection of night creams. With the L-absorpic acid it's fabulous, plays nicely with everything that I've mixed it with and I'm already noticing a difference in it reducing some pigmentation spots on my cheeks after just a couple of weeks. Absolutely amazing and 10x better than some of the Vit C serums that are $200+!
Love it, but it requires trial and errorI've discovered that less is definitely more with this product. I used too much once, and my face looked worse than the night before. However, if you use maybe half a scoop of that tiny little scooper, or a bit less, you will definitely wake up with smoother, glowier skin than when you went to sleep. Too much, however, can make you drier and peel. So it does require a bit of trial and error depending on how much your skin can take/ what it requires to get the best results. I didn't think this jar was going to last that long but I've had it since January and I'm not even halfway through the jar, so it's a good investment as well.
It works well with the Moisturising Factors moisturiser, as well as with rosehip oil mixed in too. If you want to give vitamin C powders a try, absolutely try this, but do start out with a little bit at a time to see what it takes to see results, and be careful about adding too much.
The one issue I have with this is the SMELL. The powder itself has no scent, but I always find that it leaves a terrible metallic smell on my hands and face, as well as stains the skin between my fingers if I don't rinse it off well enough.
LOVE LOVEI loveeeeee this product. I don't care thats its a little messy and the spoon is a silly shape, it works wonders. I use it mixed with buffet serum and results are super glowy skin when I wake up. I find I also have better results with the salicylic acid when using this over the top. Blemishes are always gone the next day. I did get carried away and mixed it in with body lotion and used it all over me and then wore a nightie to bed on my nice white sheets and it looked like I had sweated a spray tan off the next morning so keep that in mind. I actually have bought black sheets so I can use this in body lotion every week and not have to worry about staining.
Good for the priceI like this Vitamin C powder but don't love it. It definitely works and makes your skin incredibly glowy but it can be messy and using too much leaves it sitting on your skin, peeling and flaking away for the rest of the day. I also found it doesn't layer well with some heavier moisturisers.
The Best Product I OwnI honestly cannot believe how great this it. I mix one spoonful into standard moisturiser or TO Hyaluronic acid every night or every second night - hardly ever tingles. It is the most brightening product I have ever tried and noticed a difference in how glowy my skin was after two days. I don't use it if I'm breaking out, but haven't found that it's irritating at all as I started small and built my usage up. Miles better than any other vitamin C product from TO and incred value for money.
Genius ProductI use this a couple times a week at night. It's a super gentle AHA that really brightens your skin. I previously used glycolic acid but I have found this to be much gentler.
This makes my face so bright and dewyI love love love this product! I mix a bit in my morning moisturiser and it makes my skin bright and dewy looking. Such a cheap product that makes a difference. I put a small scoop onto my palm and then add a pea sized bit of moisturiser and mix to form a paste which I then apply. I will repurchase this for sure when it runs out.
Love thisI love the idea of this powder because you can easily mix it with any serum you want to cater to your skin. I mix it with 5 drops of the Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% in my palms and mix it with my finger. This combination makes my skin all glowy and helps with skin tone and pigmentation
greathas really smoothed the texture of my skin!
Great product but stains fingernails and pillowsI liked what this did for my skin, but have had to switch to a different form of Vitamin C because this one caused my fingernails to turn an ugly yellow brown, like someone who smokes 3 packets a day. It also stained my pillowcases but washes out easily enough. SO, great product with unexpected and unsightly side effects.
Superb ideaI absolutely love the idea behind this. You can put it in any serum which makes the incorporation of vitamin c in your skincare very easy. I don't like the smell of it, however I wake up with smooth skin in the morning and have noticed a reduction in pigmentation. Incredible price as well, highly recommend
Cheap and effectiveGreat price for functional product. I mix this powder in with moisturiser or serum and let it sink into the skin. Definitely have seen a little lightening of my blemishes over the course of 3 weeks. Only issue is that the powder is a bit of a hassle to have to mix into the serum/ moisturiser - an all in one treatment may be more convenient.
When you need those extra antioxidantsI love how it comes in a form of powder. It has a tiny scoop included and I always use one scoop. I put one scoop in my palm, then drop from one of my serums like Marula Oil or B Oil or even The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% , mix it with the tip of your finger. It gets smooth super easy. Then put on your face. I use it as part of my night routine. My skin feels soft as a baby's bum the next day and it evened out my skin tone after like a month. Super cheap and super effective!
Favourite Vitamin C productI think it's a great way to use l-ascorbic acid in the powder form to avoid the oxidization.
To avoid the 'messiness', you may scoop some out into a small empty loose powder container and then just tip some out each time. For me it's easier to mix the powder with moisturizer this way than to layer products.
Such a good ideaThis is a great way to give your skin vitamin C. I have tried many serums with only a 3 month after opening expiry date as well as creams with awful textures and undesirable filler ingredients. Having pure vitamin C powder that I can dissolve into my own toners or serums is an amazing idea and I really enjoy using this product. It gives my skin a nice glow and reduced my breakouts.
Great product for soft and smooth skinIt’s a great product. My skin feel soft and smooth with natural glow. Highly recommend.
Careful...I bought this product a couple months ago and I gotta say I am not a big fan yet. I was quite excited and pleased with the results when I first tried it but but then I had a massive breakout on my chin, like I have NEVER had before to the point where my chin had this horrendous texture....the stuff of nightmares....I actually cried.
I don't have sensitive skin but looking back I was using it every day rather than easing it into my routine, which is why I am not going to swear it off completely. Now that my skin has gone back to normal I will try using it once a week and take it from there but I am definitely scared, specially considering I only used about half the recommended amount, this stuff is powerful so definitely be careful and take your time with it. I will check back in a couple months for another review.
Great product for great value!I’ve tried a few different vitamin c applications and this one is by far the best. I use it with the ordinary moisturiser or rosehip oil or HA. I use it at night and occasionally during the day under makeup with moisturiser if I’m looking for an extra plump and smooth look. My skin glows and is so smooth after using. Just be careful not to use too much! And wash your hands as it is prone to staining, especially under the nails.
Love thisI absolutely love this powder. The Ordinary vitamin C suspension irritated my skin but this powder mixed with my night time moisturiser feels amazing
Pretty effectiveThis is a good effective vitamin C very effective has helped fade my pigmentation and my skin glows when I wake up in the morning.
Love itLoved this, would highly recommend. Good starting point for vitamin c as you can choose how much you use, start small and work your way up. I use it with the ordinary moisturiser every second night and wake up with baby soft skin
Outstanding vitamin c - baby smooth skinExcellent high quality vit c. I mix it with Trilogy Antioxidant and rosehip oil. Just a rice grain amount - less is more this stuff is strong. My skin is even, baby smooth and luminous. As vit c degraded and oxydises quickly mixing it everyday into my oil means I get the highest quality product working on my skin. Great price point.
Love itI love this product. I mix it with the ordinary natural moisturizing factors. I wake up with my skin looking brighter. Also makes my skin really soft!
AmazingI have skin that’s prone to redness around my nose and chin I have used quite a few different products that claim to stop redness and pigmentation but nothing seems to really help the redness as much as this has in the past few days of using it! I’m amazed at the results in such a short amount of time my skin looks flawless! I used two scoops as I was super excited and went a little over board, but still didn’t get any tingling or irritation at all I mixed it with The Ordanary HA+ natural moisturising factors seems to work really well,
although it can feel a little dry so can’t wait to try and mix it with other ordinary products aswell!
Cannot recommend this enough for its price and effectiveness!
Easy and effective.Easy and works a treat on my pigmentation.
Works GreatI love this little pot of L-Ascorbic Acid Powder. It is fantastic to mix with other serums etc and you wake up with skin that glows. Not too big a jar so great for travelling.
NiceI use it on my body mixed with body lotion. It brightens my skin definitely!
rapid resultsThe first time I used this I mixed half a spoon in with my moisturiser and the next morning my skin was visibly brighter and more glowy. I have been using it everyday and have had great results! some people may not like the fact that you have to mix in the powder with other products/make your own solutions as it takes a little more time, but personally I find it really fun and love making skincare concoctions! it mixes well with cream moisturisers and hyaluronic acids, though I tried it with the Ordinary's 100% squalane and it felt slightly strange and grainy. would 1000x recommend this product
Great product and price pointSuch a great price I actually bought this to use on sun damaged skin on my arms/chest. It is slowly working. Well worth the price, if a little messy.
Good and affordableIt's a good product, affordable and I would say effective. The only cons is that the powder may not mixed thoroughly and can be messy if you are not careful or rushing. But so far my skin feels smoother. Not bad!
I love this stuff!Okay, so the jar is a bit of a pain (unscrew lid, have spoon ready, pump serum on back of hand, put on spoonful - level - of C powder before serum runs away, mix and apply) but really, for the price it's reasonable.
I found no stinging, but have used VitC for a while now. This one definitely smooths the skin and is working on my sunspots - especially the one on the back of my hand, which is why I mix it there in the first place.
I'll be sticking with this one, I think.
Good productThis is a good product. It smoothen my skin. I mixed this in my moisturiser, body lotion and toner. Cons... it does stain on clothes and pillows.
OkayI wasn't in love with the product but it was pretty effective and great for the price
Good so farOnly have tried for a week now, I do like it so far. I have no stinging from it. I mix 1/2 scoop with the Ordinary HA in the morning. My skin did look a bit brighter, not sure tho, would like to use it more to see if it helps with pigmentation. I also mix it with serums and moisturizers on diff days. I def prefer this vit C than the other one from the Ordinary, which was gritty and harsh in my skin with no results
Packs a Glowy Punch - beware of how much you useI can certainly vouch for the efftiveness of this product.
I use this in the morning and make up a litle serum/emulsion using 1/3 of a spoon (the one included in the pot) of this powder mixed in with a few drops of other oils/serums(e.g. buffet,/vitamin e oil/Hyaluronic acid) as a part of my AM routine. It gives me a wonderful glow , probably the most noticeable of any product ive used!
However, please note: this stuff is STRONG. I really think there should be more of a warning or detailed instructions included for this product. The first time I used it, I used a generous half spoon and boy was that TOO much for my skin to handle! Start small is my advice, maximum 1/4 of spoon and work your way up from there once your tolerence builds. If you can navigate your way through that then you will love this product. Also i cant even imagine when it will run out! The price point on this product is nothing short of amazing!
Life-changing!I bought this product about 2 weeks ago and I was noticing a difference after the first use and still continue to notice a difference. My pore size has shrunk, my acne scarring has been reducing and my skin looks fresh and plump. I actually can’t believe how well it is working.
I did notice that I really didn’t have much tingling when mixing it with ‘The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA’ and that’s with the Hyaluronic acid and one of my other ordinary serums underneath. But when mixed with the Plant derived sqaulane and the tingling was unbearable.
Overall this is my favourite new product!
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.
BrighteningI 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.
It worksDefinitely seeing my skin brightening and pigmentation disappearing. I add one scoop to my moisturiser of a night.
