The OrdinaryVitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone<p>Want to brighten your skin and defy signs of ageing (we’re talking discolouration, fine lines and dark circles) overnight? You need The Ordinary’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’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 on14 reviews5.80Cult BeautyNew

The Ordinary - Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone
The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone Reviews
My skin is definitely looking brighter after using this at night for a week. But it's turning my hands and pillow orange.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
