this is great as it helps you build your skincare routine without using thousands of serums which can build up bacteria on your face. it has vitamin c with helps my skin a lot and it good to mix in with moisturiser to help heal you skin a bit more. it can be messy but it is so cheap and the effects are amazing

I wish I loved this product like everyone else because the price is great. However, I had a bad reaction after using this powder. My skin got all red and swollen. Since I have acne prone skin I will be going back to a pharmacy and getting something 'safer'.

Amazing product

I am not a huge fan of layering multiple serums on my face before applying a moisturizer as I have oily skin and all it does is leave my face looking greasy. This product comes with a little spoon. I use half a spoon of the Vitamin C with my moisturizer and mix it well before applying on my face. I noticed when I used 1 spoon it left a white cast, that’s why I reduced it to 2 spoon. I had dark pigmentation around my chin and that faded within 2 weeks. I am going to keep buying this product. Hope it doesn’t get discontinued.

Best Use: Treat Pigmentation / Dark Spots, Uneven Skin Texture

The Worst C Product

There is a reason why this is so cheap; it is cheaply made. Space NK stopped selling the best C product I have used for years, that is Bakel Thio C. It is finely milled and dissolves well. This Ordinary brand, does not dissolve well, no matter how long ago you mixed it.

Worth the tingle

When I first started to use this my skink felt tingly and I was worried it would give me a rash, but it was ok and it definitely benefited my skin. I mix it in with my other creams so it is absorbed easily..It works well with other Ordinary products and also my own stuff.. I have even mixed it into a face pack to give my skin that extra glow factor.. The only down side is the labelling, if you need glasses it’s hard to read and there is not enough information on what the product will help with.

Best Use: Barrier Repair, Reduce Dullness, Uneven Skin Texture, Firming, Anti-Aging
