I love this product so much. After reading about it, I wanted to try it to brighten my skin up and after ordering it, was half hoping that it wouldn't work so I wouldn't have to add yet another staple to my regime (had been trying to pare it down). However, it is awesome. I love the texture, how it is like a super thin oil that makes my skin soft and hydrated and absorbs quickly. It is …Read more

I like using this product. I always want to incorporate a vitamin c product into my skincare routine but many serums feel sticky and tacky to me. This one is a dry oil that absorbs pretty quickly and doens't interfere with my makeup or other skincare. I can leave it out when I feel like I don't need it and I feel like since I"ve started using it, my skin is a bit brighter and …Read more

I like this product. Using this, I got similar results to Sunday Rilay CEO serum which also has tetra C. I find that pure ascorbic acid solutions give an instant glow, while tetra C improves sagging skin more quickly. Everytime I use something that has high percentage of tetra C, my pores look less apparent. Coming back to this serum, it is oily and deposits a sheen on the face but it is not …Read more

This is one of the most effective products of The Ordinary line.
I am always on the hunt for a good vitamin C based serum, and this one proves to be very stable.
It is oily, so you will control it very well (generally Vitamin C serums are runny and you end up using too much) but is does take forever to get absorbed. I use it in the evenings only (no way to have this thing working under …

It was highly effective for me - brightening my skin and reducing hyperpigmentation the first time out. I liked how it applied so easily as well. Holy grail, I thought. And then came the acne - huge, cystic zits (which I haven’t had in years thanks to BHA), in areas I’ve never broken out. I think the problem is the coconut alkanes, which, turns out, can be highly acnegenic.

In short …

This is my favorite Vit C from The Ordinary. (The 23% suspension + HA spheres actually gives the most powerful brightening effect, but it's better to use at night. This one is easy to use day or night.) It has a light consistency, no burning for me, and it goes well with all my other products. I top this off with The Ordinary Resveratrol + Ferulic Acid and I get something even better than …Read more

I've tried many of The Ordinary's Vitamin C Products and many of them work well but are unpleasing aesthetically- some leave a grainy feeling on the skin and others leave skin feeling tacky after applying them.  The Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F is probably the most aesthetically pleasing of all their Vitamin C products, although it does leave skin feeling very slightly tacky, but not nearly as much as other c serums.  If you have very dry skin this is a good option, although the form of Vitamin C isn't as immediately effective for brightening or helping with hyperpigmentation, but this does help in the long run.  This did cause a breakout the first time I used this, but no issues after that.  I'm guessing its the coconut alkanes and the …Read more

I'm going to go against the grain and state that I'm not a fan of this product. I have aging dry skin, i have sun damage and wrinkles and i rarely get breakouts. This product really just did nothing for me. It leaves a greasy residue that takes a little while to soak into my skin and I didn't notice any difference before and after using it. I use other serums from The Ordinary …Read more

I really really like this product. I am usually very sensitive to Vitamin C but this formulation worked perfectly on my combination skin. I was scared that it would break me out because it is an oil but it absorbs really well into the skin leaving no greasy residue afterwards.

How I use it:

After I have used the hyaluronic acid from the same brand and waites a few minutes …

This is one of my favorite vit c products ever.
It sinks right in, it doesn't break out my oily skin, it does a good job at brightening and evening the skin tone, the price is awesome, you only need up to 3 drops per use, what's not to like?
It is also very moisturising, so in the summer I use this at night and nothing else after that.
I pair it with the Resveratrol serum …
