Texture is the issue. This Vitamin C serum from affordable skincare brand The Ordinary is a bit gritty. You know when you’re on the beach and sand gets mixed with your suncream? It feels like that. On your face. It also stings. That’s the bad news. The good news is it costs less than a fiver. And it works.
Vitamin C gives glow. Bright, smooth, glowy skin top of your wish list? Try adding Vitamin C to your skincare routine. Though not all products are created equal.
Formulating effective Vitamin C serums is challenging. It’s a tricky ingredient, doesn’t like being exposed to light, air or water. So The Ordinary have suspended a powder form of Vitamin C in a water-free, silicone-free formula. This keeps it stable. But also makes it gritty. Pretty greasy too.
Effective and affordable, yes. A pleasure to use, not so much.
