    • Why it's Cult

      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. 

    • 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.

    • How to use

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

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

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

    The Ordinary - Marine Hyaluronics
    Love this product so much. I have used the hyaluronic acid before but I prefer the Marine one more as its light and more absorbing. Love it under my make up.
    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.
    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!
    Fab Product
    Gentle and bight exfoliating; my skin has never been so clear and fresh looking!
    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.
    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!
    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.
    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!
    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.
    Visible Results
    Now it's been 14 days that I am using this product and I can see that my skin is getting better and pigmentation is reducing. I am happy with the results and will surely buy more products 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!
    Great brand
    I do see a significant improvement in my skin tone, I will purchase more.
    The Ordinary
    This product is relatively mild, the effect is not very remarkable but slowly improves my skin problems.
    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)
    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.
    Brilliant
    I love this. I've been using it for about a month. I only use it in the morning with my Resveratrol and ferulic acid serum. I had severe pigmentation on my cheeks which has diminished such that I've switched from high coverage foundation to a tinted moisturiser! I will keep this in my routine.
