A Water-Free, Stable Suspension of 30% Pure L-Ascorbic Acid in Light Silicones. 

Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant and its pure form of L-Ascorbic Acid has been shown to help reverse multiple signs of skin ageing while brightening the skin when applied topically. This water-free formula provides 30% pure L-Ascorbic Acid which remains completely stable due to the absence of water. Due to the presence of very light silicones, this formulation feels smooth on the skin despite the suspension format of the formulation, avoiding the short-lived gritty feeling of our original Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% formula. This treatment is ideally applied at bedtime.

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.

Most Helpful Criticism

Product was OK
I usually use this in the morning after i have cleansed. At first, the product stung my face a lot and the texture of the cream was really hard to spread around...
  1. Amazing! Loved the formula

    This product has helped fade many of my acne scars. I apply this after cleansing my face every morning and then layer on a moisturiser. My skin has been so much brighter and my oily skin has not been producing as much excess oil anymore. Love the product and would definitely buy it again. The price point is great too!
  2. Goodbye sun damage

    I have invested a huge amount of time and money looking for a product to help sun damage on my forearms. My skin is fair to medium toned and has started to look slightly crepey. Researching the restorative benefits of silicone and vitamin c thankfully led me to this product. The tube is generous in size and the texture is thick yet silky and blends very well. Instantly I noticed hydration that lasted all day. The crepe look is minimalised and I am so excited about the results to come in the next few months. The product delivers excellent hydration, ease of application, I experienced no burning or stinging in this area. Finally a power packed product . I highly reccomend this product .
  3. strong odour

    I wanted to give this product a go after seeing some friends use it but I honestly couldn't get myself past the strong smell. If it had smelt a bit different, I would have been able to give it a go
  4. Product was OK

    I usually use this in the morning after i have cleansed. At first, the product stung my face a lot and the texture of the cream was really hard to spread around my face. I had to dilute the cream with my moisturiser or another serum for a while until my face got used to it.
    I have noticed my skin is brighter but it is hard to tell if it is from this product.
  5. Excellent

    I have severe sun spots on my arms and hands I am in my 50's and purchased this to help reduce this pigmentation. I practically bath in SPF 50+ now on my body and face due to this. I've found the Vit C an excellent brightening and clearing agent for my arms and hands lessening the appearance of these sunspots. Only a small amount is needed to go a long way.
    I would recommend anyone with sun spots to give it a go.
  6. Didn’t notice much

    I’ve always been a big fan of vitamin C product and was really interesting in trying this out as if was such a good price for the product. Unfortunately I didn’t notice much difference after using it compared to other brands. I wouldn’t purchase this again.
  7. Strong and effective

    Being more matte than the 23% version I had hoped it would be wearable under makeup but experienced pilling. Aside from that I find this product effective but take care to avoid the sides of my nostrils or corners of mouth as the skin can flake and sting. To prevent this I sometimes mix with the buffet serum before applying. I find since using a range of TO my skin is smoother and more healthy looking.
  8. Better than the grainy verison

    Been using this for over a year. I apply it over The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2%. It stings slightly but goes away straight away. Together they seem to minimise any monthly breakouts and skin has never looked better. On the altering nights I use Alpha-H Liquid Gold and will continue to use all 3 products. I tried the grainy sphere version but dint like the feeling on my skin.
  9. Not for me.

    I used this up a while ago and unfortunately saw no noticeable results from this. My skin texture did feel slightly smoother but everything else pretty much stayed the same.

    Wasn’t a fan of the gritty texture and boy did it pill under certain products. I love the rest of the ordinary products but this one was just a downer for me. For reference I am 28 years old, oily sensitive skin with a few PIH spots.
  10. Smells bad

    I'm sure this is a wonderful product but I couldn't get pass the smell so therefore I didn't use it often
  11. LOVE THIS

    I love this product so much, it gives a slight tingle when applied and makes my skin super glowly and lovely. Some other reviews say it does feel quite heavy going on but i personally really like that feeling so even though I have a serum version I actually really like the weight this product gives.
  12. Amazing product!

    I’ve never had a product that’s made my skin feel this good instantly. As instructed I applied at night and woke up with the smoothest softest skin. I’m a week in and I’m using every second night in combination with 2 other The Ordinary serums so will see the difference in my skin in a month or so. It definitely feels better and looks smoother and brighter already! It does smell a bit weird but that’s no problem.
  13. Good product leaves skin feeling soft and smooth

    I like the way this product makes me feel the effects of the product instantly with a tingly feeling.

    The product feels very smooth and soft but very light on my skin.
  14. Not very pleasant to use

    I found the thick silicone feel to this mixed with the slight stinging sensation it gives (I don't have sensitive skin and I know this is normal with some vit c products) but together it just made it just feel really unpleasant to use. If it had made a huge difference id maybe keep going but didn't really notice much difference. I'd recommend the 23% suspension with HA spheres instead, that is a winning vit C option in my opinion
  15. Good

    You can feel this product working almost instantly. It is not for sensitive skin and this tingle is quite strong. It left my skin feeling smoother and plumper and brighter than before. Only downside for me is the feeling of the product on my skin.
  16. Meh

    I love the ordinary but I think there might be better vitamin C products out there. This I find pills a little and is hard to layer also is a little grainy. Probably give it a miss next time.
  17. Give this a go!

    I suffer from adult, hormonal breakouts and whenever I have a flare up I slather this on my face before bed and it works wonder, I use it with the serum and it works amazingly to get rid of redness and stop a flare up. It stings or tingles a bit when you put it on but that’s how you know it’s working. I cannot rave enough about this brand, it’s the only thing that has helped my breakouts and the price is amazing!!
  18. Love the texture

    I love the texture of this product but only use it a couple of times a week. Its quite strong and can cause a little irritation so I don't use it with any other actives but it gives a great glow. Good to use in morning with a Vit E.
  19. Not a fan of piling

    This does feel nice going onto my face, but I think due to the silicone content, as soon as you put anything on top you get instant piling which is very unpleasant. Will be ditching this is in favour of a vitamin C serum.
  20. LOVE!

    I LOVE this vit C. I tried using it at night as recommended, but it seemed like too much of a waste of the glow it gives, so now I put it on in the morning and it makes my skin shine from within. There was a bit of stinging with the first few uses, but now nothing at all. I would recommend this product in a heart beat. It goes on super silky smooth and it's like there's a light inside your skin
