The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%

A Water-Free, Stable Vitamin C Solution.       

This formula combines two of the most powerful brightening agents in skincare: pure Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin, both solubilized in a completely water-free formula for ideal stability. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin and reduces signs of aging. Alpha Arbutin is a highly-purified biosynthetic active ingredient that reduces the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone. 

Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin are less stable in formulations that contain water and use of them combined in formulations containing water is highly discouraged. This formulation is a water-free, stable solution, and may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds after application, despite the fact that it is completely free of oil. 

Directions: Apply a few drops to face in the AM and PM as part of your skincare regimen. Use sun protection in the AM.    

Ingredients: Propanediol, Ascorbic Acid, Alpha-Arbutin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive skin!! I have sensitive skin that suffers bad texture and redness, and I have noticed it getting better with this product. Because of my sensitive skin, I started with this product by using it every other day and at night. The consistency is more oily than a serum, so I would not recommend under makeup. The best way to apply it is to put on your fingers, rub them together, and then pat it into the skin (focusing more on where you need to relieve pigmentation/texture). MAKE SURE YOU WEAR SUNSCREEN. Overall great product, no terrible smell, and I've noticed WAY less acne breakouts.
