What You Need To Know:
Harnessing the power of alpha arbutin, a biosynthetic active ingredient, The Ordinary’s serum works to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of spots. The 2% concentration of this active evens out skin tone to leave your complexion looking smooth, glowy and free from spots. To complete the mix, a next-generation form of hyaluronic acid works to lock in moisture and protect the skin barrier.
Why It’s Escentual:
In just one easy step, The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin serum effectively fights spots whilst unlocking an instant glow. Over time, your skin appears brighter as uneven texture is smoothed out for a uniform, healthy-looking radiance. This is all thanks to alpha arbutin, which your skin gets a 2% dose of here (that’s double the industry standard concentration you’d fine across a lot of other skincare formulas.)
A powerful shot of hyaluronic acid means that the serum feels soothing and hydrating as you apply it, while it also helps the formula to glide effortlessly over your skin. The texture of the serum sits between a liquid and a gel, so it feels slightly thicker than water. This means that it feels ever so slightly sticky as you massage it in, but it quickly absorbs to leave your complexion super smooth and soft, layering perfectly underneath makeup.
The Best Way To Use It:
Apply two drops to cleansed, dry skin, morning and night. Massage the serum in until your skin feels smooth and soft - this takes less than 10 seconds. Apply your moisturiser on top of the serum, and make sure to follow up with SPF when using it in the morning.
