strange color and consistency but very effective

This active might seem strange at first – it's an odd orange-red color and doesn't smell like usual stuff. But it's not bad smelling or anything. When you put it on, it feels kind of thin and oily, and the color disappears on your skin. It costs a bit more than their other products, and the bottle is half the size so you might think twice. But I strongly recommend trying it out. I use it at night with other actives (niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, mandelic acid) and can tell the difference, I wake up with soft, glowing skin. Highly recommended

Best Use: Reduce Dullness, Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Anti-Aging

One of The Ordinary's Weirder Products - But WOW!

This is one of The Ordinary's more unusual products. It is a strange orange-red colour, it looks a bit like that old fashioned Betadine they used to put on your cuts when you fell over at school. It also smells odd - I can't put my finger on what it smells like, but while strange it is not too unpleasant. The consistency when it is applied is thin and oily. It is also more expensive than most of The Ordinary's products. So far it doesn't sound so great right? But give it a try - the results are SPECTACULAR! Firm, soft, plump, glowing skin next morning.I use it every night with The Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid, then Lactic Acid, then Pycnogenol, finished off with a thin layer of prescription Differin. My skin - I am 50 - looks absolutely beautiful!

Best Use: Reduce Dullness, Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Uneven Skin Texture, Firming, Anti-Aging

In love!

I love The Ordinary products and how they make feel but this one is a cut above. My skin feels hydrated and supple and has a lovely glow. I use it after my hyaluronic from The Ordinary and it’s helped me fall in love with my skin care regime all over again.

Best Use: Hydration, Fine Lines

I use this serum after washing and toning. The product is very economical because of the oily base, the bottle lasts for a long time. This serum moisturizes very well, makes the skin healthy and radiant. I liked the product, I'll repeat it when it's over
