You need The Ordinary&#8217;s Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone. In its pure form of L-Ascorbic acid, vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that has been shown to visibly brighten skin and reduce signs of ageing when applied topically. This waterless formula provides skin with a very high concentration (30%) of pure L-Ascorbic acid that remains completely stable due to the absence of water. The addition of very light silicones means that this formulation feels gorgeously smooth on the skin, although a strong (but non-irritating) sensation can be expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin&#8217;s tolerance to a high concentration of vitamin C is improved (the formula can be mixed with other creams and serums to reduce this sensation if needed). Ideally applied at night, this fabulous formula works hard while you do the opposite, leaving you with smooth, bright and even skin when morning comes around.</p>ORD0237699151935964 stars, based on19 reviews 5.75Cult BeautyNew

    • Why it's Cult

      Anything but ordinary, this water-free formula provides 30% L-Ascorbic acid (a pure form of vitamin C) that remains completely stable thanks to the absence of water. When applied topically, this form of vitamin C has been shown to brighten complexions and defy multiple signs of skin ageing and the addition of very light silicones in this formulation means that it feels super-smooth on the skin. Simply apply at bedtime (you may experience a tingling sensation in the first weeks of use) and wake up to the skin you’ve been dreaming of.

    The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone

    The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone Reviews

    Really nice
    I like it a lot!! I love the silicone texture, I know most people don't because they think silicone is bad for the skin... but actually, it's great!! It makes a nice barrier on the skin, keeps it hydrated and is good for scars. I use it in the evening and I will for sure repurchase it!!!
    Frightening
    I’ve only used this for the last two nights but I’m not sure if I should use it again. I read that it can sting and I did have a stinging sensation below my right eye on the first night, but no where else. I was surprised at how dry/powdery the cream was on my face but didn’t use another moisturiser on top that first night to see how it was in the morning. The only visible difference the next morning was a slight puffiness under my right eye that had stung the night before. I used it again last night and added a light moisturiser too. Again it stung below my right eye. This morning I look like I’ve been punched! Below my right eye, it is swollen and a deep line from the corner of my eye round to my cheekbone has appeared that has never been there before. After a cold compress it has reduced slightly but it still looks bad.
    Fab
    I use this daily over the serum. Fantastic. I love it
    Great but...
    My skin is definitely looking brighter after using this at night for a week. But it's turning my hands and pillow orange.
    Love it
    I have been using this in combination with retinol from The Ordinary and have seen a tremendous difference. My skin is clearer and has a nice even tone and healthy glow. As people mentioned before, it stings in the beginning so I used it in combination with my cream, but after a while, my skin got used to it and now it feels fine even without cream.
    Greasy
    I have normal/dry skin and personally this feels uncomfortable on my face, the texture is slippery and overall the tingly sensation hasn’t hit me either.
    Best product for troubled skin!
    Have been using this product for just under a month and it has changed my skin. I hardly even experience breakouts and when I do they disappear almost instantly, and don't leave any scarring. Old scarring is also reducing and the elasticity of my skin is improving. It does sting when first using the product but that sensation dies down quickly and stops after continued use. My skin is smoother, more glowy and just so much better.
    Not sure
    I've been using this product for a few weeks now and not sure about it. It does sting a little after applying it but fades within a minute or 2. I think you need to use it 4 a while before seeing real results.
    Smells like fake tan!
    I have noticed a slight change in my skin since I have begun using this, my overall complexion seems smoother however EVERY morning I have woken up stinking of fake tan and now my palms have turned orange! It does apply nicely and instantly smooths my face however it is definitely too harsh and not thick enough to use on it's own so I use a moisturiser and an oil on top.
    Very aggressive, not for oily skin
    The product may contain good ingredients bur overall is quite bad. It leaves greasy feeling and look on the skin, more then other Vitamin C products I have used, so I do not recommend it for oily skin. It did not absorb very well and it clogged my pores. I was a shining mess before I decided to stop using it. Also it stings on the skin and it is quite aggressive. There are no soothing ingredients in it in my opinion. Combined with other skin care products once caused unbearable stinging reaction and irritation, which lead me to washing all products from my face and apply soothing cream.
    good?
    Nothing special.
    Wowzer
    Love this. Use it 3 times a week
    Silicone sucks
    Because it's such a high concentration in Vitamin C it caused my skin to react, I'd leave the house with patchy red marks on my face. I have used numerous facial products and have thick skin, oily T-zone due to my Brazilian heritage and I'm not allergy prone. I've had microdermabrasion in the past but I've never had the same reaction that this product gave me. Unfortunately, it's not got a patch on Boots vitamin c solution, which is the only thing I can compare it to. I would say invest in something a little more on the dear side if you want a satisfactory result. This just made my skin more sensitive the more I used it, especially around the nose. The texture (silicone) isn't great nor the smell. Sorry ordinary I love your other products.
    Love
    I love it. It tingles upon application, but it's worth it. I love the way my skin looks the morning after. Yes, it's a bit weird/greasy feeling, but I don't mind, I just use it at night.
    So-so
    I'm not really sure how I feel about this product. I had purchased it in October and been using it since then, but I haven't noticed any remarkable changes in my skin. I actually prefer the Vitamin C serum I've been using this product. This product has a very weird texture and consistency, like a primer as it's silicone, but it makes me feel like I can't put anything on top of it – if that makes sense. In the beginning, I felt a stinging sensation, but now it barely stings at all.
    Quick Results
    I introduced this and the 0.5% retinol in squalene into my skincare routine and within 2 days my skin was noticeably smoother. The first few days there will be some stinging but it goes away and after a week using it regularly there shouldn't be any stinging. After 2 months using it, I definitely feel that my skin texture has improved drastically and my acne scars are starting to fade.
    Burned my face
    This has turned my face into red. It was definitely a burn, as it did not go away for few days. Had to stop on day 3.
    I really like it
    I've been using this for 3 weeks and I see the positive dynamics: my skin has already become more elastic, the post-acne gradually lightens. The first 7 days I had this "a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation" (it's been said on the official The Ordinary site). I would recommend this product.
    Very harsh
    I really wanted to like this, alas it's impossible. I used this for two weeks; from day one it was very uncomfortable to wear as it really stings. And that's saying something coming from me, an experienced hydroxy acid user. My skin is not sensitive or allergy-prone but I have progressively developed an intolerance to this, with rough patches on parts of my face where the skin is thinner. Not recommended at all. I'm very sorry to say I have nothing good to say about this product.
