Allergy reaction!

1

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

4

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!

5

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

5

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

1

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!!

5

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

5

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

1

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.
