    • Description

      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.

    The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%

    The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% Reviews

    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.
    Didn’t do anything
    I’ve been using this product for about a month and I honestly haven’t noticed any difference (my problem is post-acne, not scars, just dots all over my face with different color). Also the formula isn’t very comfortable, it resembles oil and I even find it drying when I apply some light moisturizer on top, so I have to always go with something heavy.
    Effective enough
    It smells like artificial candy, faint fruity smell. Not a great smell. The consistency is like a light oil. It feels a little sticky on the skin, but that feeling dissolves quickly. Also slightly tingles and makes my skin feel warm. It's not moisturizing at all, so use with something moisturizing on top. I have been using this product for months and it has really helped more with brightening my complexion than with diminishing pigmentation spots. It also helps with evening out my textured skin. I have brown skin with red undertones, I do recommend this product for skin of color.
    Great Product!
    Started using this at focused spots for my pigmentation. This product did help removed them entirely, Also noticed more radiant skin after using. Definitely a keeper!
    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.
    The Ordinary
    This product makes my skin radiant and glow.
    Very Effective Serum
    I really like this serum. I have been using vitamin C and its derivatives for some time now, so my complexion is fairly used to it. However, this serum has some kick. Immediately after application you feel a warmth, but it goes away quickly. After only few days using it, my complexion is very clean and luminous. I highly recommend it.
