The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Solution works to leave the skin glowing from within while helping to minimise the appearance of visible dark spots. A blend of rich antioxidants work to protect the skin against harmful environmental damage.

The serum's ethylated form of vitamin C is closer in molecular weight to the purest form of ascorbic acid, meaning it acts quickly and effectively as it dissolves into the skin. This vegan and cruelty-free formula is suitable for all skin types.

Greasy with enlarged pores

Love Ordinary products but it’s hard to know whether they’re right for my skin or not. I replaced a different vitamin c serum with this one and the texture is greasy, feels like it sits on top of my skin and doesn’t absorb. Throughout the day/night while wearing it, my pores become enlarged. I wish I knew which vitamin C was best for me out of all the ones they have! It never shows up in the “build my regimen” routine but I know I want one still.

Severe allergies reaction.

This product caused me severe allergic reaction on my face and neck. I had to take antihistamines and put antihistamine cream on my face and it took days to calm down. It caused me burning and itching on my face and neck that started the day after I used it. They should do something about it as I can see other people had same issues.

Love it!

As someone who has had oily skin all her life, I was worried about whether this product would work for me. But I love it! My moisturizer glides right over it and my skin looks smooth and glowy all day. I've used it for a few weeks now and am glad to say I've had no negative reactions. My husband likes it too.

Severe reaction after one use

I tried this product one time and woke up completely swollen and red the very next day. This us definitely not for me.

A staple in my skin care routine

I've been using this stuff every day for a few years now. It adds a healthy glow to my complexion, gives my face a slightly dewy finish, and keeps my fine lines at bay. I absolutely love it!
