The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder 20g

Stripping back unnecessary packaging and misleading ingredients, The Ordinary offers an abundance of brilliant, high-performance products – but the brand has outdone itself with this innovation. Ladies and gentlemen, meet your skin’s new best friend: vitamin C powder. Vitamin C has long been exalted for its brightening, skin-unifying, age-defying powers – but it’s often difficult to keep stable and effective. That’s why this ultra-fine powder is so good, as it provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically. Expect a strong tingling (but non-irritating) sensation as your skin adjusts in the first 1-2 weeks.

As most skin care buffs will know, vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens skin, evens out tone and reduces signs of ageing. A suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder, this formula provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically. This extremely effective method visibly targets the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness and other hallmarks of ageing. The powder can be mixed with other treatments (except those containing niacinamide or EUK 134) so it will slot in perfectly to any ritual. With this format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is to be expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use while your skin’s tolerance to vitamin C is elevated.

Mix a small amount with other treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to face in the AM or the PM. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. Do not mix with formulations containing Niacinamide or EUK 134.

If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skin care, it should be applied at alternate times with EUK 134 or Niacinamide (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and EUK 134/Niacinamide in the AM). Otherwise, EUK 134/Niacinamide can affect the integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).

Fab

I've been using this for just over a week now and I can see a huge difference in my skin. I haven't had any issues at all (except my hands have turned orange?). I have been using it alongside the Retinol 1% and they seem to be working really well together for my skin.

Great product if used correctly

My favourite Vitamin C product so far! Must be careful not to use too much and also should not be mixed with certain products (such as acids, peptides, niacinamide, etc.). I prefer mixing it with The Ordinary's Natural Moisturising Factors cream or Squalane based granactive retinoids (right before using it, I mix it on my hand). Can also be mixed with water but I find that to be very messy. Should start using it at a small dose and once a week and increase it gradually (to avoid burns and such). It helps get rid of acne and also quite visibly brightens skin. I feel like I can see a difference immediately in the morning!

Not too happy with this

Warning: I had big problem when used on my neck. Very raw, sore and bumpy skin. Didn't have the same problem with my face, and I am not even sensitive skin type. So be careful!

Be careful

I noticed no difference to my skins brightness, this product caused my skin to get red burns maybe? Like patches of sore red skin. Very irritated. Very drying even on my super oily skin also smells gross if you don't wash hands straight away. Smells like meat. Also leaves an orange tinge on my fingers! Thought it was rust! Very sad as heard such good things!

Perfect if used correctly...

I use this twice a week and mix it with a very hydrating moisturiser as it does dry your skin, but if this does happen, then moisture again straight after. You only need the tiniest bit of powder, don't use a whole scoop as you will find it really gritty on the skin and it doesn't sit well. I use twice a week after my thicker serum, mixed in with my moisturiser and it really does brighten the skin...

Great but don't pre-mix

I've been using this mixed with face creams or face oils. Honestly, it has helped brighten up just the red patches left by old spots. I pre-mixed a batch so I could take it when travelling - I know the powder is kept in a UV safe container but I thought it would be okay for a short time. It was not! It went yellow then orange and even when I was using it when it hadn't changed colour yet my face broke out in loads of little bumps. It's annoying because I'd rather not take the whole container with me travelling. So it does work but please don't pre-mix!

Awful

One word: dermatitis. Even if used in a tiny amount and mixed with a soothing cream, oils or vitamin E. Odd because I haven't had this reaction from any other vitamin C products.
