    The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% Reviews

    Good product quality
    Great product for skincare.
    Can't live without
    One of those products that you only realize how good they are when you finish the bottle, and after a couple of weeks without it, your skin starts looking all wrong. Its hard to explain what it does, but it just makes my skin look much better overall. I got this as my introduction to vitamin C, because it was supposed to be their least aggressive option. Now I want to upgrade to something stronger, but I love it so much, I'm a little hesitant to let it go
    Lovely Results
    My skin looks so much brighter and has an even tone now. Helped get rid of my dark spots and unevenness. Gonna buy another soon.
    Great but...
    It definitely makes you glow and is very effective. HOWEVER, I do not know if it is just my bottle but it always gets super stuck. If you live alone or do not have anyone in your house to open this bottle when it glues itself shut then I wouldn't suggest it.
    Lovely product!
    Great formula, no scent, secure packaging that protects product from light, easy to use dropper bottle, formula is lightweight , breathable and easily absorbed.
    Awesome Serum
    On my second bottle now. This serum brightened my skin and helped in diminishing the acne scars as well.
    Made my skin glow
    I have stubborn, oily, acne-prone skin, which wouldn't clear up no matter what I put on my face. But using this product (alongside niacinamide and rosehip seed oil from TO too) for only 2 weeks, I already see and feel the massive difference it has made on my face. It made my skin SO soft and plump, and I rarely suffer from breakouts anymore. It also comes in with a fairly low price, absolutely would repurchase this.
    Great vitamin C boost
    I really like this serum, it isn't greasy and leaves a matte finish on my skin whilst making it glow!
    Great for daily use
    I've used 23% vitamin C, but found it quite harsh on my skin and was only able to use it every 2 to 3 days. This one however, I have been using daily without issues. I am so far pleased with the results, blemishes and dark spots are all lighter and less noticeable. Will definitely buy again.
    THE ORDIANRY Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
    Good product, an effect seen from the first day. It's quite sticky on the skin, as all products with Vitamin C are, so using it only for night time. My skin is a mixed type, so it works perfectly as its not so strong.
    not for me
    I'm oily and acne prone. When I started using it, my skin was irritated and I'm pretty sure I can't handle ascorbic acid well. I think mature skin types will do better with it.
    Not worth the money
    Makes the skin look glowing, temporarily. However, makes no difference in the long run. I felt like it's just make-up, washing your face after the long day will leave your face looking like it was before.
    This is a repeat order for me and have been using this product for 2 years. It is definitely more cost effective than any other brands that are producing Vitamin C serums for lesser volume. The quality is amazing and the company itself is very sustainable. The product itself, has diminished my dark spots and gave myself a plump and youthful look. I totally recommend this product for anyone who wants a brighter glow!
    super nice
    The product is great. Looks my skin better.
    I really love it. It makes my skin looks so much better.
    Love it
    Love this. It worked very well with my oily skin and I noticed a clear glow to my skin since I started using it
    Fast Absorb
    I love AGS and highly recommend it for a daily vit-C serum. Use this in my AM routine as it absorbs fast.
    Fantastic product
    I have been using this product for a couple of months now and absolutely love it. It transformed my skin. I used to get oily and dry patches on my face but this for some reason has relieved it?! It's also slowly brightening my skin which is what it's meant to do! I don't find it sticky and my skin absorbs it really easily.
    More suitable...
    Not a bad product although I think it would be more suitable to slightly oilier skin types as its a gel-like texture and dried to a sort of matt like the texture on my skin. I prefer the vit c 23% to this. I'll give the other vit c products a try, I won't be repurchasing this.
    Pilling on the skin :(
    Haven’t really noticed anything yet, although it’s just been 2 weeks or so. I’ve tried using this in the morning beneath my sunscreen which is ok, but if I put liquid foundation on top it starts pilling on the skin which makes my morning skincare/makeup routine more time-consuming. I’m eyeing off the oil based vitamin c serum now as that should not cause this issue.
    I wish people would stop bashing this specific product for "rolling up". There are multiple forums, videos and articles about how to stop "piling" (yes people, the correct name for what is happening.) It is far less to do with the product itself and more to do with the amount you are using or the products you are using it with (i.e if you use something silicone heavy or at all with it - this can cause piling). Furthermore, the product is not intended to be used as the last step (i.e moisturiser should be applied on top) which is why it is sticky to the touch. Usually, the ingredients that prevent things being sticky are less beneficial to the skin and just add cost to the item. The ordinary do not use ingredients that they do not need to use. This product is amazing for skin brightening, perfecting skin texture and tone.
    Love it
    Amazing to get a vit c product at this price. Goes on sticky similar to most hyaluronic serums but that feeling disappears after a few mins or moisturiser.
    Great product
    All products of The Ordinary skincare is absolutely great. Can help it to use it.
    Changed my skincare game
    This is honestly the best combo i’ve tried with the niacinamide serum. I have noticed after a few weeks my hormone spots has disappeared entirely and my face is brighter and softer. I actually skip foundation now because of the dark spots/pigmentation that is beginning to fade. This is going to be a permanent staple in my skin care and already can’t wait to buy another bottle!
    Great results especially for the price
    My skin has been a bit lacklustre recently, so thought Vitamin C would be a good introduction. I didn't want to spend too much as my skin can be reactive, so gave this a go and was very impressed. My skin is brighter and there was no reaction at all. I find the thick, oil-like texture easy to apply and like that it sinks into my skin quickly. My skin also seemed less prone to breakouts whilst using this but it may be a coincidence.
    Soothing product
    This vitamin c is so soothing to my skin. Very gentle and mild product. I loved it.
    Vit c
    I started with this from The Ordinary as I had never used VIT C before, it was a great starting point, it never gave me any reaction and I used it for months. I can now move on to slightly stronger one
    Absolutely brilliant
    I have the worst dry face ever and have tried many products until o gave up. I noticed how flawless one of my sisters skin is and she recommended the ordinary. Within a few days of using the product everyone notice a difference. My face is soft and supple. My dark patches are fading and my skin feels firmer. About to order my next batch. I can totally understand why they sell out so fast.
    Good investment
    I’ve chosen this product as my first experience with vitamin C, have been using this for a month and so far so good. I can definitely see a huge improvement on my skin in combination with a retinol (not using together). I think it’s a good product for a beginners in skincare however there are also better products just more expensive
    Used as an alternative and stuck with it
    After having done some research into what I needed to introduce to my skincare routine I chose this to use in the morning. After a month, I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the brightening and the general health of my skin. It absorbs quickly so I can get on with the rest of my morning routine quickly. I tried this as an alternative to the Vitamin C suspension 30 in silicone as that irritated me and I found it pilled a lot. This goes on smoothly and feels gentle on the skin. Very happy with the switch!
    Nice serum
    I enjoy using this serum as it absorbs quickly and does brighten the face a bit but it is so mild I can use niacinamide with it . I only gave this 4 stars because although I thankfully don’t notice any bad reactions with this product, I don’t use it every day and I have not been using it long enough to be able to report any lasting effects. Will update in a few weeks/ months time as I usually don’t notice positive effects with skin care products until I have used them for a couple of months at least.
    Could be better
    This was my first experience with C vitamin products. I wanted to like it a lot, but this serum feels sticky on my skin. Skin feels dry and uncomfortable if I don't put moisturiser on the top of the serum. I have combination skin and dry feeling isn't something very common to me. I don't think I will try this serum again, but I am open to try other products from Ordinary.
    The product is a serum which glides nicely on the skin. The product is user-friendly as the potency is slightly lower to allow tolerability. I would recommend.
    Love it
    It makes my skin so much better. Love this.
    I have been using this product for a few months now... after listening to some advise on the internet I started using in the AM and the PM under the eye area ...this product has helped with the bags under the eyes, they look less puffy. SO happy with the results.
    Amazing stuff
    Makes the skin feel super fresh!
    Super product
    ***English translation*** I purchased this product for my pigmentation and I've been using it for about 3 weeks. I have to say that my skin has improved and pigmentation have also been attenuated...I'm using it with other ordinary products...and an excellent quality / price ratio...super
    Pretty good for the price
    It worked well for me
    Glowing effects
    It does help in giving me the glowing I always wanted. Recommended product.
    Great product
    I have been using this as a serum after HA for some time every morning. I love it :) I do use a cream moisturiser on top too but yes it brightens up the skin and feels lovely once absorbed. I also wait a few minutes before adding moisturiser to enable it to be absorbed. Just purchased a 2nd bottle:)
    Ever since religiously using this in my routine, my skin is definitely brightening up. I use this after the glycolic acid 7%, noticing a nice change in my skin. Will repurchase.
    Don't get it
    It really does ball up in small bits if you happen to touch your face after applying. The key is to apply a really tiny amount and spread it quickly. Not a case if you want to use a moisturizer or foundation on top. I didn't notice any great effect but it doesn't do any harm either.
    Retexturizing overnight, but still too sticky!!
    Bought this on a whim as I don’t have issues with discolouration, however, this product was more effective at refining skin texture overnight and helping control a spot than the 2% retinoid serum from the same brand. Unexpected! Reach for it a lot. Knocked a star off because it’s so goddamn sticky and balls up like anything (by that I mean when you use moisturiser or makeup on top and you get the little rolled gluey bits in case that sounded ruder than I intended). I don’t expect anything from this budget brand to have perfect texture or performance though, I just expect it to very basically take care of the skin of people with low incomes (was particularly special to me, a skincare nut, when a period of severe illness forced me to live off an income of £5k).
