The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + Hyaluronic Acid Spheres 2% is a water-free, silicone-free stable suspension. Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant and its pure form of L-Ascorbic Acid has been shown to reverse multiple signs of skin ageing while brightening the skin when applied topically. The system is supported with addition of dehydrated spheres of Hyaluronic Acid to offer visible surface smoothing alongside the benefits of Vitamin C.
Directions: Apply a few drops to face in the AM or the PM.
This formula is highly concentrated and only a very small amount is needed to cover the entire face. The formula is a suspension of extraordinarily fine L-Ascorbic Acid. As such, the formula has a higher viscosity than most serums. In order to dispense the formula, please take out the pipette from the bottle completely, squeeze the top fully, insert back into the formula with the top kept squeezed and then release the top. This approach will maximize the amount of serum that enters into the pipette dispenser.
Ingredients: Ascorbic Acid, C13-15 Alkane, Isodecyl Neopentanoate, Dodecane, Isononyl Isononanoate, Acrylates/Ethylhexyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Ethylene/Propylene/Styrene Copolymer, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glucomannan, Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Bisabolane, Trihydroxystearin, BHT.

Given the extremely low price, this is worth a try if you want to try a strong vitamin C product and your skin is not too sensitive. I didn't experience any burning or irritation but did find the gritty and greasy texture unpleasant. I have been using instead the Hylamide C20 serum which has a more silicone texture and is more easily incorporated into my skin care routine. However, it is quite a bit more expensive than the Ordinary brand version.

I have acne prone skin and currently have breakouts which i'm sure it isn't super good to be using this with that as it does sting quite a bit but if you use a small amount it's just a tingling like the product says there will be. it is gritty but not too abrasive it's made my skin and texture noticeably better within a week and it didn't break me out, definitely recommend!

I think some people in the reviews here are unwillingly giving out inaccurate information about this product. I was misinformed after reading the reviews here but purchased it regardless after doing some research and reading the product information thoroughly. I have to say now that I've used it that the grittiness and slight tingle/sensitivity that comes while and after applying the product did bother me at first, but then realized that if it is applied correctly and left to fully absorb before layering on other products, the grittiness vanishes. Another point to note is that this product does NOT contain Silicone. The Vitamin C powder is suspended in Hyaluronic Acid, for the most part... which can feel heavy on the skin, but doesn't prevent any absorption. The Ordinary does have a Vit C in Silicone product but it is not this one! So far this product has been great and very easy to add to my extensive skincare routine.
