    I just repurchased 2 more of these!

    I started using this product last summer! At first was really hesitant in using this because of the more than slight tingling sensation i felt. But i kept at it because they had told me that the tingling was a common side effect.
    After almost a year of using this i can definitely say that this product is really effective for my skin. My skin looks much tighter and brighter now.
    Pros:
    - makes my skin brighter
    - super affordable!
    - doesn't break me out
    Cons:
    - just a slight tingling sensation at the start
    - the bottle is quite small so i have to repurchase often (good thing it's cheap af)
    Would definitely recommend this to someone who's starting to incorporate vitamin c in their routine!

    Not my favorite

    This product works well as I can tell by the tingling, but I really didn’t dig the HA spheres. The texture is just too gritty for my liking. I switched to the silicone version and am much happier with that.

    maybe not for everyone, but i love this

    strong vitamin C, stinky, your face turn red after applying it. This is a bit watery than the 30% silicon one, but both are strong. Your skin may not like it and i don't think this is for everyone as it is not a mild formula. however i personally like it and noticed that it fades dark spot (left by acnes) quickly.

    Unique product

    This unique cream acts as a skin renewer, exfoliant, serum in one. Use a pea sized amount or less. There’s a tingle once applied to DRY, just washed skin. The tingle means it’s working, don’t worry. Then I brush my teeth. After two minutes my face is ready for moisturizer. I’ve noticed an improvement in texture, dark spots lightening.
    Such a great price too. Sephora can’t keep it in stock unfortunately, it’s that good of a product.

    Effective but horrible to use

    This product works. I could see results after the first day! But the experience of using it is so awful, I don't think it's worth it. It's gritty, greasy, and it stings after a few uses. There are other effective and less unpleasant Vitamin C options so I've moved on. I'll use this on my hands until I've emptied the product, and won't repurchase.

    The struggle is worth it!

    When I first started using this, it was a struggle, but in the end, I think it's worth it! I first used this alone (after my essence and serums) and it stung. It wasn't too bad but I don't have sensitive skin. To me, that just meant it was doing something. However, my main problem with it is that it pills. If you rub it into your face for too long/rub your face after putting it on it'll peel off into chunks. I've tried mixing it into my serums and moisturizers which helped, but it won't work with everything (it'll curdle). I found that mixing it with something of a similar texture and then adding something with more slip will work best. I mix mine with Clinique's smart serum and then add moisturizer/oil for extra spreadability if I need it. After using this for 2 months, my scars have faded quite a bit! (I also use this in conjunction with alpha arbutin so maybe it's that too!)

    Easy pass for me

    I’m a big fan of the ordinary line of products. Heard good things about this one thought I’d try it. Yes it tingles when it goes on that didn’t bother me. It does turn your hands orange if you don’t wash them after applying. I wanted to love this but after trying for 2 months I just couldn’t get rid of the acne and blackheads that wouldn’t go away. Stopped using and my face returned to normal fairly quickly.

    Not really my thing

    Hmmm not too sure on this. The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension face cream. I’m giving it a good go. I think it’s the culprit for my breakout. It is also a very weird texture and has an odd faint scent. Will have more later.

    At first when I tried this lotion I wasn't a fan of the gritty texture and it did sting a little. I added a small drop of The Ordinary's rosehip oil and it helped with the texture and the slight sting. I also use the rosehip oil after as well. I noticed a difference in my skin after a week and I am now hooked. My skin is smoother, softer and brighter. I absolutely recommend this product. Just remember a little goes a long way.

    I was hoping to love this product, but I can't say I do. The formula is very strange, oily and gritty. My usual routine is Vitamin C in the morning and a retinoid at night. Due to the formula, this is a night time only product. It doesn't seem to play well with my other serums and can cause piling. Overall, compared to another Vitamin C serum, the only good thing about this one is the price.
