The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%

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.

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.

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

A great facial serum

I have been using The Ordinary branded products for over a year now, as well as other brands e.g The Inky List as I like to mix-match especially if one product works better than the other. I have tried the Ascorbic Acid from another brand but this one works for ma. Some may say it leaves your skin looking and feeling very oily especially if they have oily skin to begin with, which don't get ma wrong as it did that to ma face but after a while, I noticed that it calmed down and left ma skin feeling and looking healthy and it gave it that glow it was missing. I would definitely be coming back for more!

Not for those with oily skin

I’m sure this is a great product if you have very dry skin but if you have oily skin like me then you should skip this - my face felt like a chip shop!
