Feels like: A cream with a light and powdery finish

Recommended for: Those looking for a vitamin C cream to brighten skin and reduce the appearance of ageing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong but gritty My mom has used many tubes of this little powerful gem and will continue to use it. Not for smooth elegant formula lovers, or sensitive skin, it packs a punch in a gritty suspension that is very effective in brightening and evening out skin tone. She uses it at night and has brilliant results everytime. But it takes time getting used to it and appreciating it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Positives & negatives... My skin is no stranger to high percentage topical Vitamin C (GOW's 23% serum for example) and so I thought nothing could possibly go wrong with The Ordinary's 23% concentration. If only! Within 60 seconds of applying this gritty and very oily-textured product, I could no longer stand the tingling sensation and had to wash it off with tepid water and a washcloth. I wish I could say this was part of the whole 'normal Vit C initial reaction', but I've used enough of them in the past to know what to expect...and what not to! The redness and a slightly uncomfortable sensation lasted for at least 15 minutes after washing off too. Didn't attempt using this again on my face after that reaction, which is a shame as this could have been a very cost effective substitute for some of the more pricey Vit C serums I keep splashing out on. On the plus side, it turns out there is a way for me to salvage this, by applying a very small amount mixed with Aveeno lotion (approximately 1/6th Vit C to lotion ratio) to non-sensitive areas of my body and the back of my hands on a night, and it hasn't caused any negative reaction so far, in fact it's given a bit of 'glow' to my skin. I'm also applying at a slightly stronger ratio (1/4) to my elbows which are darker than the rest of my arms, but no difference so far. No negative reaction either, and no staining so will continue to apply until it's used up.  ~ My Space NK Top 7 must-have list ~ (My top 7 must-have beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Space NK) 1.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful and unpleasant to use No just no. This is dreadful. Oily and gritty, stings on application and generally just nasty to use. I'm not thrilled as I got this to use with my Resveratrol from The Ordinary -the two are supposed to mix together and boost effectiveness- but I just can't use this at all. I have now found another, better, Vitamin C cream and use that instead to great effect. Shame as I love The Ordinary but this is not at all good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very dense When I read the description of this cream it seemed too promising so I said why not, well the thing is that it is as if you were waxing your face not in the sense that it is shiny because I do like to look very hydrated, but In the sense that the cream is so heavy that when you put it on your face the thick white plate remains as if it were car wax, on the face when it dries it feels like smooth but very very heavy I did not like it. and the hydration that promises I did not see it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An uncomfortable road to good results This was the first Vitamin C product I tried. As always, for price, I think The Ordinary is a good company to try new ingredients with. I would use this at night and as others have said, the tingle was extreme and sometimes uncomfortable. I did notice a fresher complexion the morning after, but I’m unsure if the gritty and tingling experience was worth it! I have tried many other Vitamin C products since. All of which more comfortable, but perhaps not with such noticeable results?!
