Here’s another new Vitamin C product from The Ordinary because Deciem are clearly committed to us having much brighter, more even toned skin! Here’s what you need to know about the brand new The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% & Alpha Arbutin 2%. I have been giving it a whirl.
So, this is a water-free solution which means the integrity of the Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) will be maintained. This is extremely important when it comes to Vitamin C as water is the only thing that makes it lose its potency. This one is for you if you have lacklustre skin with hyperpigmentation.
The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% & Alpha Arbutin 2% Features
- Ascorbic Acid is an effective antioxidant that brightens skin tone
- Works to reduce signs of aging
- Presented in a water-free formulation to maintain stability
- Alpha Arbutin works to reduce the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone
- The two components work together to brighten and target pigmentation
- Available HERE for £10
I have been using this at night for the past couple of weeks and absolutely love it. Usually at this time of the year it’s a real battle to stay on top of pigmentation, even when using SPF50 daily, however, I think this has been doing an excellent job at brightening the skin and keeping my freckle explosion at bay.
I really like the texture which feels almost like a dry oil. It smooths on to the skin effortless with minimal tingle, and it layers really very well with other products. I put it on top of the new The Ordinary Buffet with Copper. It makes my skin glow straight away, and it looks more rested and healthy when I wake up in the morning after using it.
For daytime, I have been using The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution, which you can read about here.
