    The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F

    The Ordinary Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F Reviews

    If I could give this a higher rating, I would. My skin is glowing. I've been using this for about 3 weeks and it's 100% worth it.
    Great product
    Very happy with The Ordinary my pores are much smaller I will definitely buy again. At great prices too.
    I love this serum, my skin got smoother lost the pigmentation! I will buy it again for sure!
    Love it
    This product is great, my skin feels nourished and glows after I've used it. When I get lazy and don't put it on I can tell the difference, my skin definitely doesn't look as good. Not sure if it's helped with pigmentation but it's certainly not hurting! I'm definitely keeping this in my routine for the foreseeable future.
    Packaging is the worst
    I can't even tell how much I am dissapointed. The review has nothing with the serum itself, but rather with packaging. I bought a bunch of The Ordinary serums in the beginning of summer and put them to one cosmetic bag horizontally to use one by one later on. Of course I stored this bag in a dry, cold place without any sunlight. Today when I reached for another bottle I found out that a bottle of Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F is soacked in it's contents along with every packaging in that cosmetic bag. After opening the box I saw the cap widened and can't be closed anymore. What is even more dissapointing it was never used and taken from the original packaging! Of cource the serum left is oxidized and I am not even sure if it's fine to use it. I feel frustrated that I didn't even try it.
    Love it
    I love how this product feels going onto my skin, so soothing and has definitely made an improvement to my overall skin tone and condition (used alongside other The Ordinary products) I will be buying this again for sure!
    Love it!
    I’ve used this for more than a month now, love that it doesn’t feel oily on my face although it’s a face oil. I use it for my PM routine. My acne scars are beginning to fade on the fourth week, no redness/inflammation, and I love the glow when I wake up in the morning. (My skin type: normal, only gets a little oily in the tzone)
    It is a nice serum. It hydrates and doesn't irritate the skin. The ingredients are all good, but I give it 4 stars because it is not effective as some potent l-ascorbic acid, especially in fading dark spots. It is just a nice antioxidant serum for sensitive skin that also hydrates.
    Love it
    I have been using it for almost 3 weeks and I love it.
    Product fantastic!
    The product is amazing! It feels lovely on the skin and quickly absorbs. Already (couple of weeks in), I am getting compliments. Honestly!
    I subbed this in for Hylamide's 25% Vitamin C Booster, since it's about £10 cheaper, but I'll be going back to the more expensive option. I've been using it for about a month now, and it just hasn't made any improvement to my skin, if anything it's dulled again, and I find the consistency too thin and oily, compared to the Booster. It also smells weird, like old water. As for the Vitamin F, I've seen no other improvements I could attribute to that - again, my skin felt bouncier using Hylamide.
    After a false start now I love it
    This took a little while to figure out how to use. I have very sensitive skin.Originally I was putting it on after my serum and it just broke me out and caused irritation. I ended up putting in the fridge putting a few drops in my body oil, thinking it was a wasted buy. However, after priming my skin by using the 10% MAP cream for several months I tried again. This time buffered it, putting my serums and growth factors on first and then mixing this with my The ordinary moisturizing cream along with the revisterol serum, and only use 1 or 2 drops for my whole face and neck, followed by a vitamin e oil along with my SPF. I was worried Id get the same reaction but after 3 days my face is looking clearer and brighter. Now I have figured out how to use it without breaking me out I love it.
    Game changer
    I am very skeptical with The Ordinary products as I've tried so many from the past and none of them works. But this is a total game changer. First of all I have acne prone and combi skin and suffers from uneven tones and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (caused by acne). It has dry oil texture and I apply it after Jan Marini Bioclear Lotion (the only one that controls my acne) and before my moisturiser. After 4 months of usage (i'm on my second bottle now), my skin has never been so clear and even; although I still get my hormonal acne but the scars fades faster (than before) and my skin has the 'glow' that I need for natural 'glass skin'.
    Absolutely mind blowing!
    Been using for 2 to 3 months along with The Ordinary retinol. I'm totally over the moon. I've been told my skin looks like that of a 40 year old, and I'm 54!
    My skin is getting better!
    Good Product
    My skin type is oily with acne scars and large pores. I have been using this product in combination with the Resveratrol and Ferulic acid everyday during the morning before make up. My skin is much better and I found my blemish scars have vanished. I have already purchased one so would continue using it until it's empty. However, I would like to purchase and try other vitamin C derivatives from The Ordinary.
    Love this
    Best vitamin c serum. Recommend and would repurchase.
    Perfect for the price
    I have tried so many vitamin c serums. This by far is the best from all aspects. It has a sticky feeling when you apply it, but it doesn’t bother me because I use it as my night serum. I would repurchase definitely.
    No tingles and itchyness
    Finally a Vitamin C product without all the stinging and itchiness. Also, perfect underneath makeup.
    Fantastic product
    Skin tone is more even and smooth after using this product twice a week for three weeks. Would recommend.
    ONE WORD: BRIGHTENING also Best for oily skin
    I got this product delivered when I was having really bad breakouts. I have brown skin and every time I get breakouts I get severe hyperpigmentation around that area. I think I was very lucky to get this product during this time and I am shocked to the core to see how FAST my hyperpigmentation is fading. This looks awesome underneath makeup as well. I have super oily T zone but this is surprisingly better than ANY primer I used before. I love this. 10/10 would recommend and would repurchase.
    Nice one
    I am through about 2/3 of a bottle right now and I am pretty sure it contributed to evening my skin tone...a lot. My skin is nice and even. It also feels really good and hydrating, only it does take a while to absorb (probably because of squalane). It did not help my hyperpigmentation a ton. I might say there is some change visible, but a very slight one. Definitely worth the prize though. Try it, it won't break you out.
    Not very effective
    I didn't see the effect of this, as I big fan of The ordinary, I know their products don't work alone, but I incorporated this into my 12-step regiment, and its oiliness didn't help. I wouldn't reorder.
    Great extra to your routine
    Oily girls don’t be afraid to try this. I have oily/combo skin and this did not make my skin oilier or change the way my make up applied. It sinks it soooooo quickly and doesn't feel heavy at all. I’m not sure how effective this is at clearly my skin up because I am using this in conjunction with the 2% retinoid and hyaluronic acid. I have however noticed a massive difference in my skins appearance and I do believe it’s because of these three products :)
    Fast acting, non irritating
    Really easily absorbed, so easy to incorporate in to morning and evening routine. Seeing results after only a week on my very sensitive, dull skin. Also seems to be helping with texture. Its a thin drier oil though, so don't expect plumping - but is great for lines, scars, tone.
    6 stars
    This is one of the products that significantly lightened my pigmentation and I'm barely half way through my first bottle. Feels like light oil, smells a little orange-y and absorbs in no time. I have 2 bottles of backup.
    It’s not sensational
    It doesn’t seem to have made much of a difference to any age spots and I use it every night. However, the placebo effect keeps me using it.
    Not sure if this has done anything
    I've had this for a few months now and tbh I don't think it faded my acne scars. Also using too much of this breaks me out, adding to my scarring. It feels really nice on the skin and now my breakouts are under control, I've reintroduced this to my routine and use it sparingly.
    it's ok
    I don't use this everyday as I didn't notice a difference like I have with Matrixyl.
    Great serum
    Excellent serum whitens your skin spots and does not irritate Your skin My skin type is mixed oily T zone
    Incredible product!!
    I have been using this for a few weeks now and my skin has never been this soft, or looked this good! Everything about this product is amazing, thoroughly recommend.
    Something magic
    Gotta be honest, was a bit sceptical about this when I ordered my first bottle but as a fan of The Ordinary products, I wanted to give it a try and honestly feel like it’s made such a difference to my skin. At one point I left using it for a while when I got lazy and saw how dull my skin started to look, just so happened that in an attempt to not waste product, I went back to using this again and instantly saw the difference and realised how good it actually was, so obviously wasn’t a hard decision to order again. I can’t argue with the price I guess as the rest of the ordinary products are so inexpensive, it doesn’t hurt to spend a little bit more for some
    Ordinary product
    Everything perfect
    Good stuff
    Helps my skin to feel really hydrated.
    The Ordinary
    I use a wide range of The Ordinary and I’ve not found one that I don’t like! To name but a few the Vitamin C Suspension, Buffet, Matrixyl, Marine Hyaluronic, Squalene, and caffeine solution are all very good. I’ve just started using the new face wash and that’s great too! Absolutely well worth a try. I’ve been using The Ordinary for over a year now and I definitely saw the difference very early on even my friends noticed!
    I love it!
    I have been using this for nearly 12 months now with Alpha Arbutin, and Retinoid, and have found that not only is the combination lightening my melasma, but it seems to keeping my wrinkles at bay too!
    It works
    Oils generally does not work for my mixed to oily skin type but this one is different. I was hesitant but you don't feel the oil for long, it is absorbed quickly and it hydrates. My skin is glowing! But I have to say that I have also been using other Ordinary products at the same time so I am not sure how big the impact is. But overall they work very good.
    Made my skin worse
    I’m so disappointed with the product, made no difference whatsoever. Have been using it for 2 months, left me with more spots and scars. purchased this as the reviews were so high it obviously didn’t work for me.
    It's too good.
    It has made my skin a bit brighter, softer and more elastic.
    …very good effect
    This has improved my pigmentation marks on my face incredibly. So impressed with the results so far! It glides on & leaves your face feeling so smooth, great as a base before foundation. I've not noticed a brightening effect, but for pigmentation, it's a winner.
    I've had oily skin and congested skin in the past and fix it, I tried many different products that people raved only to further dry and dehydrate my skin so when I bought this, I was really praying for a miracle and guess what? On the first try, my skin felt extremely supple and hydrated - something no moisturizer would help with.
    Such a nice product
    This product is great. Glides on smoothly and is nicely absorbed. It’s a great base for moisturiser and makeup. Would recommend!
    Brightens and evens
    Really evens out the skin and brightens skin tone, after just a few uses! Definitely getting another bottle :D
    It's ok
    I was very excited to hear about this serum after having terrible reactions to vitamin c serums. I have very sensitive eczema prone skin. This serum is moisturising which is good but can't see much of a brightening effect.
    Very nice
    This has been part of my skincare regime for a week now, and I quite like it. I feel it smooths and nourishes my skin before applying SPF and make-up, and that´s what I want from it.
    Can't say enough how good!
    Can't say enough how good this product is. Few good ingredients, extremely light texture, it absorbs super quickly that I can apply my creams straight ahead and my skin is sooo glowing since I'm using this! I'll rebuy again and again!!!! and you all should do the same, you won't regret! ^_^
    Oily skin friendly!
    This leaves my skin feeling very happy - and I would never thought I would say that about an oil considering I have oily skin as it is! It sinks in really well and my skin looks moisturised and fresh the next day.
    Love this in winter, even right under Serum Foundation
    The beautifully soothing texture if you like light skin oils and tend towards a drier skin type. I live in Finland, in an area that is regularly very cold and windy. It really adds so much comfort that most days, I skip any kind of skin cream - this "is" the skin cream. I've felt no irritation with it at all, and in winter with my easily-dry skin, it gives a dewy glow to the serum foundation when applied beneath (your mileage may vary - I do not have oily skin, so it works for me)! In any case, I've been using this in tandem with NIOD copper serum and other various Ordinary products and feel that it's contributed to my skin texture is smoother, brighter, and the skin itself less reactive. I've used it day and night, with and without other products, and the price is so reasonable that I add a few drops to my hand cream as well, when I apply it.
    Love it
    This is oily formula but so lightweight. Makes my skin so soft and relaxed. I really love this product. Highly recommend.
    great product
    Love this absorb nicely and goes great under other serums , recommend.
