Ascorbic acid

I didn’t really like this product, it’s  very oily and I didn’t like the feeling it had in my skin, I didn’t really see a change but I only used it for 2 weeks, wouldn’t buy again.

I’ve still not seen a big difference in my skin with this!! A shame but probably won’t buy again!

This serum is ok, my skin didn’t seem to get on with it though and it caused a breakout of blemishes so I had to stop using it. Unfortunately this meant I didn’t really see any positive effects so I can’t really say much. If you haven’t got blemish prone skin then maybe this product would work better.

It’s only been a few weeks but I feel my skin looks brighter. I can’t wait to see more progress.

It’s okay

I don’t really notice a huge difference but I also have been using it consistently! It feels quite oily and heavy so best to use it at night

Best for pigmentation on brown skin

works wonder when used consistently, even though I was unable to use it consistently i noticed visible difference in my persistent hyperpigmentation. had i used it consistently would have definitely gotten rid of all my hyperpigmentation. (Tip use at night avoid using in the day or use with spf in the day).

The ordinary

I’ve used the ordinary’s alpha arbutin 2% + HA Concentrated Serum 30ml before and decided to try this one. I hope it eventually fades my dark spots.
