    The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

    The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Reviews

    Has visibly reduced hyperpigmentation and acne scars! Also, added a nice glow to my face. Works great on sensitive skin which I have. I really recommend this product.
    Didn't work for me
    I've been using this consistently for almost 2 months and unfortunately, I've seen no difference in my skin.
    Brilliant, brilliant and more brilliant
    This product was my introduction to this brand and I got an extra bottle for my mum. Well what a result, her sun spots of years are fading and she is on her 2nd bottle. Love this!
    It's great
    Unfortunately as I started using it I spent the day out in the sun. The product helped a lot to clear the sun burn and now I'm just waiting to see it work on my dark marks. So far so good.
    I love it and I will repurchase it all the time! At first, I thought it doesn't work, but after some time I realized it really does. I only use it in the evening, so if u use it twice per day maybe it has even better results!
    Alpha arbutin.
    Brilliant product.. it really does work.
    This mid-tone complexion black girl loves it!
    I started using The Ordinary about a month ago and I love it! I used this Alpha Arbutin in conjunction with the Hylaronic Acid and the 100% Plant m-Derived Squalane. My skin texture is smoother, I’ve seen a dramatic decrease in the dark marks on my cheeks, and I feel like I’m glowing!
    It brightened my hyperpigmentation.
    First Serum
    I combine it a few times a week with the lactic acid and I can say that even though my acne didn't go away, my face doesn't get dry anymore and pigmentation goes away faster.
    My first ordinary product! I have sensitive skin. It just made my skin so plump and clear. My complexion improved. Recommended to many friends and I've ordered for them too.
    Didn’t see great results.
    Best product
    Enemy to my acne scars. It works well on me but please ship this again to Malaysia I don't know where I can buy this stock again.
    I bought for hyperpigmentation on forehead. After a few weeks there is no real change. £7 wasted. Texture is nice and not greasy. That's the only positive.
    I'm impressed
    Started using a few days ago and already in love. Very light texture and skin is soft. I think it will become part of daily skincare routine.
    The ordinary is awesome
    Its my first purchase and so far I'm thrilled
    No limit
    Overall I love this product
    This is my Favorite skincare
    I love this product, But the smell is terrible. I use it with moisturiser My face is so bright
    Wish theres no quantity limit
    This is amazing and is always a hot selling item and almost everyone I know is using it.
    Holy Grail Serum
    I really like to use it since making my skin more brightening. Will keep repurchasing.
    A must in my skincare routine
    Absolutely love this. Works amazing on my olive skin. I do have the occasional breakout and they leave hyperpigmentation behind. This helps fade those pesky flaws away and I'm now flaw free. I do use this together with the Niacinamide to keep my face blemish free. Absolutely love it!
    Great for my skin
    I’ve been using this for a month and it has helped to smooth out my skin especially the chin area where I have hyper pigmentation and dryness.
    Works, just be patient
    So in summer 2017 I had acne for the first time in my life (I'm 19) I got rid of it thanks to my dermatologist but I was left with some dark spots all over my cheeks. I decided to give this serum a go and at first, I was very disappointed and sceptical. One month in and there were no results, I was even thinking that it's causing me to break out but I figured out that if I bought it I'm going to use it up and then decide if it was a waste of money or not. I started using this product in February (I've taken a before picture just to keep track of the progress) and now when I'm sitting down to writing this review it's may. So that means that I have been using this product for good 3 months, I snapped some pictures again I tried to keep the lighting very similar and YES THERE IS A DIFFERENCE! The spots are still on there but they are far less prominent! Next on my wishlist is the rosehip oil I heard that is good for hyperpigmentation as well :) Would recommend if you don't mind waiting for the result (a chemical peel at a salon will give you better results quicker but it's more expensive).
    I don't have enough words to describe this amazing product! It's like a magic elixir. My pigmentation has faded after 3 weeks of consistently using it, am and pm. This is coming from someone who has gone for peels, used derma rollers, bio-oil, skin lighteners, you name it. My friend recommended this to me, literally so grateful! Don't even think twice about it, just buy it and see for yourself. £7, cant go wrong!
    This really helped with my scaring and pigmentation!
    Love this
    I'm mixed and always get dark spots after a pimple. This product has completely removed these and I now have even skin color again. It has not removed old pigment spots, but I will continue to use this for a few months. Keep in mind that pigment spots take a long time to remove.
    Did zero results on skin pigmentation
    I have been using this product for the past 2 months every day and night. Good to remove spots, but did absolutely ZERO to my skin.
    love the full range
    Since I started using the ordinary my skin has improved. It's softer smoother and although my dark patch for the sun hasn't disappeared, gradually lightening up. Highly recommend.
    You can't argue with its efficacy at this price point
    At this price point, I wasn't expecting groundbreaking results but I did see my dark spots / acne scars / hyperpigmentation lighten gradually after using the whole bottle so I was pleasantly surprised. I tend to use it as a spot treatment and has served me well.
    Alpha Arbutin
    Very nice. Thanks.
    I'm quite dark skinned - MAC NW55/Fenty 460 or 480. I got this to help fade acne scars and hyper-pigmentation I've had for years from teenage acne. Used this as instructed (AM and PM) and after less than a month, my scars are visibly faded, my skin tone is more even, and it has not lightened my skintone which is amazing. I love it! Will re-purchase and likely reduce to either AM or PM once I'm satisfied with the evenness of my skin.
    Avoid if you have sensitive skin
    I bought this item after seeing all the good reviews but unfortunately, my skin turned worse after using it. It is very strong so think before using it if you have sensitive skin. My perfectly good skin is horrible now. I honestly wouldn’t advise buying it.
    Truly, life changing. Also, I have been using for one month now. And it has completely helped my skin, to miniseries pores and shrink the size. Totally worth it.
    It works.
    Great if you have any sun spots or acne marks to improve. Also, don't forget your sunscreen. Power combination.
    Wonder product
    I have combination skin and I have suffered from breakouts and scarring for years. This didn't clear it all (teenage hormones are still alive and well) but this got rid of the majority of my scarring and has improved my breakouts by a lot in the space of a couple of months (although I noticed results within a couple of days).
    Luv it! Helps brightening and reduce redness.
    Delightful surprise
    This product is amazing. I have been using it for a month now and I can see visible improvements to the hyperpigmentation on my face. As a dark skin girl I was skeptical I must say; however, I am very impressed.
    Very good serum
    This is my second bottle with alpha arbutin. it works like a magic. Really love how it works on my skin. Sadly Cult Beauty have stopped shipped to Malaysia.
    מוצר מעולה מבהיר פיגמהטציה ונעים על העור *** An excellent product that brightens pigmentation and improves the skin.
    Good products
    My first purchase and I love it!
    Good products but not that impressive
    I have had problems with acne spot for so long because my skin condition is always hard to faded those scars. This one make my skin lighter obviously and can fade acne scars a little bit as I use this for 1.5 months. Anyway I am so sad that Cult Beauty won't ship The Ordinary products to my country anymore. Cult Beauty team have always answered my question and shipping products faster than other website. Please reconsider to shipped this to Thailand again. Thank you.
    I love it so much!
    It's a fab product feels divine on my skin.
    Glued to this product
    I can't live without this serum. Very light texture and suits my skin well. I have repeatedly purchased this many times.
    You Deserve It
    I use it with "Niacinamide" in the morning and with“azelaic acid” at night. My skin appears brighter and softer! You deserve it.
    Worth It
    This serum really fades my scars after almost 4 months, it takes time but totally worth it! Worked so well with snail mucin and azelaic acid. My skin appears brighter and softer! Love it!
    The BOOM !!!!!!
    I've used four bottles of this and you think I'm gonna stop there? Hell no! I love this so much
    Will definitely buy again
    I love this product as it fades away my acne scars, I use it with AGS and both works wonder to my skin. Will definitely buy this again.
    The best yet
    I’ve used this for a few weeks now, and I definitely see a difference. I’ve tried all sorts of stuff that has never worked, this on the other hand, so far, is the best ever!
    Great serum
    Been using this for a few months and noticing my scars are fading, gonna keep repurchasing XOXO
    Noticeable difference
    I really like this. I use this with the hyaluronic acid and Paula's Choice azelaic acid. Lovely combination, my skin looks so different lately. It's bright and my acne scarring is slowly fading.
    Works well, be persistent
    I have dark skin, warm and acne prone, I used to have a 'The ordinary craze' but this is definitely one of the ones that work! I reordered this because it helped me clear the dark spots and hyper-pigmentation caused by acne and the sun respectively. It's such a miracle product- but I'd paired it with retinol/retinoid, to see the full potential of it.
    Holy Grail
    This is my holy grail product. A MUST HAVE in every skincare routine. It makes my scars fade even though it might take some time. I LOVE IT. I will always repurchase.
    My skin is very scared from acne throughout my life, my pigment was really bad especially on and around my chin and mouth area! This product is amazing I’ve just finished my first bottle about to purchase my second. My skin is so clear there are still a couple of deep scars which I don’t think will ever go, but the redness and darker areas have gone, I used this product pretty much every morning and night since July 2017 so it has lasted me 5 months. I can not rate it enough! Also, have a lot of other products from the range and love them all. Thank you!
    Didn't help with skin pigmentation.
    First product from The Ordinary and will not be the last.
    I did not see my pigmentation (from sun damage) lighten only until my first bottle was nearly empty. Suddenly the brown spots look like they are breaking down. On my 2nd bottle now and I'm seeing further improvement, some spots are no longer visible. Texture is tacky but just apply a thin layer of moisturiser over it and all is well.
