    Meh!

    Empty review! 💜

    ♡ The Ordinary (@deciem)- Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

    ♡ Purchased at: @sephoracanada

    ♡ First impressions: This serum is meh. I thought it was making a difference with my dark spots at first, even if applying it morning and night, but is it really? Maybe. For the price, I’m not angry at it. I like that it contains hyaluronic acid for the extra boost of hydration. It does ball up a bit, though, if not left to absorb. I appreciate that it’s cruelty free and vegan.

    ♡ Will I repurchase?: After using up my backup, probably not. I’m excited to try other serums after.

    ♡ Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

    Great product for the price

    I think this did help slightly with the hyperpigmentation but it didn't make a huge difference. I'm still going to use it for longer to see if it makes a big difference. For the price, I think it doesn't hurt to try and see how your skin will respond to the formula.

    magic in a bottle

    for years i had really stubborn dark spots from previous pimples that wouldn’t go away. i ordered this on a whim and after a week the spots were gone! my overall skin tone is now balanced, and it can even target darkness under the eyes. it is such an incredible product at SUCH a low price point

    Does it work or not?

    I got his serum after hearing and reading reviews that it helps with post-inflammatory marks and scars. I experienced terrible maskne last year and this was suggested to help with dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. I have been mixing it in with my niacinamide solution and the two serums have been doing a great job of preventing, reducing and eliminating maskne. Not sure which serum is contributing to most of the results but at only $9 a bottle, I'm not too concerned about it. I do recommend this product to others since the price makes it a steal!

    No visible results

    I tried using this for 6 months with no visible results. I get more results from using the Ordinary niacinamide. I have used these two products together and feel the arbutin does nothing for me. Might work for someone else.

    great for hyperpigmentation

    I have been using this for hyperpigmentation on my back from acne scars, for about two weeks along with the ordinary glycolic acid toner and it has reduced the acne marks so much! I definitely recommend.

    Works like a dream

    This product is my absolute holy grail. The first time I used it I saw a decrease in hyperpigmentation over night. It has a light consistency and is completely clear. Doesn't have a lot of smell to it. It's a bit thicker than water. One thing I noticed is that ot doesn't last long. It might be because I use it almost every day and night though. I am on my 2nd bottle and I absolutely love it. Wish they made bigger bottle so I wouldn't have to buy multiple at once

    It did nothing

    I’m on my second tube in hopes of fading my acne marks but it didn’t fade it. I still have half of the bottle left but I got tired of using it as I don’t see results. I guess, this product is not for me. I’m glad that it’s cheap.

    Great and Affordable

    I bought this product to help with my acne scars and it did just that. The price was great and the product was really effective. It was also very hydrating with the HA added. One thing, make sure to use this product with sun protection on your face.

    Overall, would definitely recommend and repurchase.

    Aide beaucoup pour les tâches pigmentaires

    Ce produit aide énormément pour tous ce qui l'hyperpigmentation. J'utilise le produit depuis peu et je vois une amélioration quant à mon teint. Je ne m'attends pas à ce que mes tâches disparaisse après seulement 3 semaines d'utilisation, mais je suis très satisfaite du produit. De plus, le sérum est compensé d'acide hyaluronique ce qui aime beaucoup avec l'hydratation de la peau. Je sens que ma peau est plus limineuse et en même temps hydratée. Très bon produit pour les personnes à la peau foncée.
