The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% Review

At first, I was very concerned about purchasing this product or not but after doing some net surfing I finally decided to give it a go as I was in urgent need of something that can fix or at least lighten up post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. But the very next question was from where to buy this product as there are many online sites which claim that they sell original products and there have been cases where the product I received was not original. Then I came across a website of Aodour, I went through all the blogs and reviews and finally decided to buy one and thankfully I received 100 % original product.

The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% contains a formula which combines two most powerful brightening agents’ vitamin c and Arbutin which is a natural form of hydroquinone. As of now, I have used this product for 6 weeks and I can simply say yes this product has made a great difference for my skin. In the first application of this product, you will not feel any type of irritating or tingling feeling it’s just a little bit warm sensation. I would recommend starting using this serum in a very low amount just 2 3 drops to see if this irritates your skin or not if everything goes well you can increase the amount later on. Its application is just the same as you are using any oil on your skin which was a little weird at first but it will be absorbed in the skin very quickly leaving your skin very moisturized. I have used this in the night and I would advise you to use this product only in the night, if you apply it in the morning it will look a little bit greasy and you will have to wait for applying makeup before it gets absorbed in the skin. You should have to wait at least a month before seeing any visible improvement and changes. Almost after a month my skin was brighter, my marks were very much lightened up which am hoping to go away in the coming next month Moreover when you will wake up in the next morning of applying this product you will feel that your skin is very soft, moisturized which makes up the makeup application like a dream.

 As I was on acne medication during this period my skin was very dry and rough but after using this serum the texture of my skin changed and it always looked very glowing and moisturized. If you are looking for something which can help you in getting rid of your acne marks or any type of hyperpigmentation or if you have extremely dry skin. Then I would totally recommend this product, it’s only that you have to be a little bit patient with this product at least use this for 6 weeks to see better results. Good Luck
