The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% 30ml


Boost your skin’s radiance with The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%, an anti-ageing formula infused with vitamin c for all skin types that brightens and evens out skin tone.

The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is enriched with vitamin c, a powerful antioxidant that reduces the signs of ageing by minimising fine lines and wrinkles, leaving a youthful glow. Vitamin c is also renowned for boosting collagen and protecting against harmful free radicals linked to ageing, all of which helps to keep skin looking supple, plump and rejuvenated.

Alpha arbutin is a naturally occurring ingredient that inhibits pigmentation, reducing the appearance of dark spots to create a more consistent and even skin tone. These key ingredients are paired in a water-free formula, as water would destabilise and decrease their effects.

Why We Love It

Vitamin c is an ingredient that all ages and skin types should consider adding to their skin, and Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is an affordable way to start. The stable vitamin c solution may feel slightly oily upon first application, despite being completely oil-free. Once it’s been massaged and absorbed into the skin it creates a natural glow, continuing to help you achieve a youthful and illuminated look you’ll love. You’ll find application easy and fuss-free thanks to The Ordinary’s pipette function.

How To Use It

Using the pipette, apply a few drops to the face (avoiding the eye area) during the morning and the evening. After use, follow up with sun protection in the morning.

The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% 30ml is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vitamin C Serum Have been using this for a couple of weeks now, wanted to try a Vitamin C serum without shelling out too much money. The price was very reasonable, packaging was good, easy to dispense etc. This has an unexpected sweet smell, I've been mixing it with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid and I think it's been making my skin a little more radiant. I've used it morning and evening and it's easily absorbed. Not certain if I'll buy it again, I think I'd prefer a product that has several active ingredients as I'm never certain when to put this on - before or after hydrating serum, before or after an oil...?
