Used up half a bottle and have already repurchased this. I use 2-3 drops of this daily with half a scoop of LAA powder to mix my own vitamin c serum. This has an oily consistency, but not when mixed with some aloe vera gel.

While i can't attest to how well this product works on its own, I'm very grateful deciem revolutionized the industry and brought premium ingredients like …

Price is right. I decant the powder into an empty bb cream case and scoop a little bit of vitamin c to mix with ferulic acid and my moisturiser daily.

Definitely notice a reduction in pih marks, though i haven't really noticed antiaging benefits yet. Still - this is a great and cheap way to incorporate vitamin c into my skincare routine! No worries about product stability, which is …

This is meant to be a very gentle chemical exfoliant. It has an oily consistency and applies like a dry oil. And is so gentle i can't tell if the softening of the skin the morning after is due to exfoliation or just from using a facial oil type product.

However if you're new to chemical exfoliation this is a great place to start as I experienced no irritation at all, and is …

Ive used a whole bottle of this serum solely for the fine lines on my undereyes and saw no improvement. To be fair it's a very nice hydrator, but if you're hoping for wrinkle reduction as peptides are purported to do I wouldn't rely on this product.

Fingers crossed the retinol I'm using now for undereyes work

Excellent chemical exfoliator - The Ordinary really excels in making great acids imo. This works beautifully and I've never had softer skin! I use this once a week at most so 1 bottle is gonna last a long while. Great value for money!

Really hydrating and contains a good amount of nicinamide for all-round skin goodness. Like it a lot, except when my skin flares up from tretenoin/differin. Then it's much too sensitive and this product stings!

Great price, works well if you're not using actives or not sensitive to nicinamide/fragrance/algae extract. More hydrating than the famous hada labo lotion, so if …

This serum is so hyped up online but I really don't get why. Been using it for nearly 5 months now, and haven't seen any noticeable reduction in oiliness (in fact, I'm slightly oilier than before) or any textural improvements.

Maaaybe it did help to lighten my pih faster but I'm also using the elf hydrating essence, which contains nicinamide and honestly I saw …
