I love it

I really love this ordinary range ascobric acid and alpha arbutin oil. I have repurchased multiple times and I love the way it sits on my face and absorbs. It leaves my skin glowing and both great acids to target hyperpigmentation which I love.

Gives you a glow

I used this product with a gua sha every morning and didn’t think it was doing mich. I used it till the bottle was finished. A friend I hadn’t met in awhile saw me and asked me what I was using on my face as it was glowing. This plus the Ordinary moisturizer were the only two products I had been using, so I attribute the glow to this product.

works fantastically after mixing with moisturizer

I purchased this TO Ascorbic Alpha Arbutin several a few months ago. When I apply it directly to my face, I notice that it causes burning and irritation . However, when I combine it with another cream-based product, such as Natural Moisturizing Factors HA or ceramide-based thick moisturiser, it transforms the cream into a more fluid/serum-like texture that is easier to apply, and the mixture no longer causes irritation or burning

Best Use: Treat Pigmentation / Dark Spots, Reduce Dullness

I ma not sure

I finished the whole bottle because I do not believe in wasting, but I am not sure if this product delivered any results for my skin. It did not irritate my skin which is a bonus, but I did not notice any magical or any for that fact results at all. I am puzzled

Love this product I’ve definitely seen an improvement in my skin since using this. My hyperpigmentation has improved in appearance greatly I would definitely recommend this to someone like myself who isn’t a skin care expert. I use this daily and have seen no faults in it so far.

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