The Most Important Thing About This Serum Is…
The Ordinary’s formula harnesses the power of natural antioxidant, azelaic acid, to smooth skin texture and offer an immediately brightening effect. As your skin tone is evened out, blemish-prone skin is left looking healthy and radiant as it has a decongesting effect.
