The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
Brightening and Anti-Aging 30 mL
The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% is a brightening serum with stabilized Vitamin C derivative. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant, brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of aging. In its pure form, Vitamin C is unstable in water. Ascorbyl Glucoside is a water-soluble derivative of Vitamin C. It is much more stable in water but it is less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid. Being more compatible with water allows for a very pleasant serum texture. It is considered a gold standard of Vitamin C derivatives due to its high stability and comfortable use, but it's impossible to achieve extremely high L-Ascorbic Acid potency with this solution. Aside from the general benefits of pure Vitamin C, Ascorbyl Glucoside has been shown to offer specific skin brightening benefits. Overall, this serum brightens skin, improves fine lines & wrinkles, and helps to even skin tone.

Directions: Apply a few drops to face AM and PM, before applying oils and/or creams.

No fragrance, nice consistency. Slightly tacky upon applying but it dries down nicely.

I have sensitive skin and this week am noticing more redness in the morning (but have changed more than one thing in my skincare routine so not sure this is to blame). After four days noticed a nicer texture to my skin - will continue to use (but at night only!).

Admittedly I haven't used it long enough to tell if there's a visible difference in my skin yet. At least, there's no negative side affects. So far I like how it has no fragrance, the consistency is thick, so you only need 2-3 drops to cover your face and it absorbs quickly. So far I'm quite happy with the purchase.

Great product! As a first time vitamin C user I decide to start from less concentrated form like Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%. The Ordinary Guide to Vitamin C was right - no stinging at all, no allergy reaction, my skin is looking better just after few days. But I am going to finish the bottle rather fast because the serum is too watery. Next time curious to try the oily form like Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F.

Saw results after just 2 days with this!!! My skin looked more even and had an amazing glow!!! So glad I took a chance and tried this!!!
