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).

Allergy reaction!

I used to like The Ordinary. But I recently noticed that a few of their products caused me allergic reaction, including this one, and the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. Areas around my mouth and eyes became painful, itchy, swollen and red. It took 2-3 days to get back to normal. I don't have allergy-prone skin and I have tried many different brands. This is the only brand and I am allergic to. I will not buy this brand anymore.

Strong but useful and versatile

Strong as it's pure Vit C, great for mixing with other stuff. I mix it occasionally with Lactic Acid or Hyaluronic Acid. I do not use it often. There was some tingling but nothing too annoying. (I have combo skin prone to acne, a little bit on the sensitive skin side)

The Ordinary 100%L-ascorbic acid powder!

I am not one for writing reviews but this powder surpasses all my expectations. I ordered it after reading so many positive reviews about it. My God, it did not fail to impress me. I suffer from hyperpigmentation and I have used so many high-end products with no good result. The very first day I bought this powder, the next morning I was surprised by the result. It was literally starting to clear the hyperpigmentation areas on my face. I can honestly tell you that I am hooked on it now and it has become a big part of my everyday skin care beauty product. I don't think I will ever be without it. Measurement is very tricky but once you've got it right you will understand what I am talking about. My skin can tolerate one measuring spoon

OK

I have sensitive skin so I thought a powder form of vitamin C would be very easy to work into my morning routine. I tried using it mixed in with my serums, creams and even sunscreen. And I found that it still burns sometimes and my skin flares up like a mini chemical burn. I'm not mixing it with anything it shouldn't be mixed with and haven't used it after using retinoids or acids the night before. So, I am still confused as to why it causes a reaction on my skin sometimes. With all that being said, I still didn't see a change even on the days when it doesn't flare up my skin

Love Love Love The Ordinary - 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder

I have been using this powder on and off for over a year to give my skin radiance boost. I have mixed this powder with about 5 of The Ordinary's other products and I got the best results with the 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil. These two together = Power Couple!!! I use it at night cause of the smell. I noticed my old acne scars disappearing within a week. It's my go to post break out routine. The sting was strong for the first 3-4 days and then it was fine. It did irritate my neck at first but that also gradually stopped.

Tanning

Everyone says vitamin C brightens the skin and reduces pigmentation but this product has tanned my skin rather than brightening it. My skin looks duller since I have started using it, my sister has also observed the same effects.

By far the best Vitamin C product I have ever used!!

I have been using this Vitamin C powder as an all over body treatment. I mix this into either almond oil or organic pure shea butter. This has dramatically improved the hyperpigmentation I have had on my arms and legs. Any scratches that have caused pigmentation I have had has nearly gone or they are nearly invisible. I go through a little tub a month and I use this daily after showering. It did tingle slightly but you build up a tolerance fairly quickly. I would recommend this not only for the face but for the body as well.

Absolute best

Philosophy has a turbo booster vitamin C powder. I used to use that so much. That one is expensive plus they only give you 7 grams. This one is just like that plus so much product. You have to know how to mix it and it will give you the best results. I mix it with Cosrx snail serum on palm of my hand and rub it in my palm till it completely dissolves. After I put it on, I use a 50+ sunscreen. You will see the brightening same day. I use 3/4 part of spoon. If using for the first time, only use 1/4 of the spoon.

Awful

I love all the Ordinary products I have used so far, but this one is awful. My skin was full of huge cysts after couple of days. Plus the smell is horrible smells like rust all day long. it did not mix well with heavy moisturisers plus I have not seen any brightening or benefits.
