The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%

Stripping back unnecessary packaging and misleading ingredients, The Ordinary offers an abundance of brilliant, high-performing products at surprisingly affordable prices. This potent formula combines two of the most powerful brightening agents in skin care: pure vitamin C and alpha arbutin, both solubilised in a completely water-free formula for perfect stability. Brightening skin tone and reducing signs of ageing, this formula is particularly adept at reducing the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Perfect for brightening skin and minimising the appearance of uneven skin tone, The Ordinary’s Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is optimised for ideal stability. Notoriously difficult to keep stable, vitamin C and alpha arbutin do not perform at their best when combined with water – hence, this formula is completely water-free. It may feel slightly ‘oily’ for a few seconds after application, despite the fact that it is completely free from oil. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reducing signs of ageing, while alpha arbutin is a highly purified biosynthetic active ingredient that reduces the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone. The Ordinary offers a host of vitamin C-based products to brighten skin – opt for this one if you’re looking for a ‘moderate’ option and a ‘light oil’ texture.

Apply a few drops to face in the AM and PM as part of your skincare regimen. Use sun protection in the AM.

Good product

I didn’t notice any dramatic results but hyperpigmentation takes a while to disappear. My only problem with The Ordinary is they have so many products so I tend to keep trying new ones and I've only used this for a month. I didn’t break out nor did this irritate my skin and sits nicely under makeup. I might try this again in the future but I’m currently trying out another vit C serum from The Ordinary.

Cleared up my skin

This serum cleared up post-acne and other pigmentation problems, brightened skin tone. It's a bit oily, but my dry skin just love it. Great product!

Vitamin C Serum

Definitely worth the price - if you’re patient and encorporate the serum into a good, consistent skin care routine, the results are great!

Крутая сыворотка от акне! - Cool acne serum!

Я использую эту сыворотку не так давно, примерно неделю и уже вижу результат. Использую пока только в вечернем уходе, у меня сухая и проблемная кожа, через неделю использования данной сыворотки прыщи успокоились, пятна осветлились, тон кожи приобрел ровный вид и лицо сияет здоровым свечением!Я очень рекомендую Вам эту сыворотку!Попробуйте и вы поймете о чем я говорю! **** I used this serum not so long ago, about a week and I already see the result. I use it so far only in evening care, I have dry and problem skin, after a week of using this serum, the acne calmed down, the spots bleached, the skin tone became even and the face shines with a healthy glow! I highly recommend this! Try it and you will understand what I mean!

Nice Vitamin C serum

It might seem a bit oily and gathers on the surface of the skin but if you don't mind that it performs quite well (fixes the skin tone issues and lessens the acne scarring pigmentation)

This product is relatively mild, the effect is not very remarkable but slowly improves my skin problems.

Great product

I have been been using this for a few weeks, my skin is definitely brighter and smoother. Not sure how well it has reduced my scarring, but I will definitely make sure I keep using this product.

Great product

I love The Ordinary products and this one didn’t disappoint. Wasn’t expecting the yellow colour but once I got over that I really enjoyed using this product at night. No irritation just smooth skin. Will re-purchase.
