I was thinking to purchase that product but I would like some help about how to include it in my skincare routine (morning or night)? Also I'm using niacinamite so I would like to know if it's works better at morning or night since they can't be used together.
Has anyone tried this? I want to know if it compares to high end vitamin c serums. And how you would apply it without irritating your skin. Thanks!
Is it good product or not ?

The Ordinary’s 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder is an effective antioxidant that visibly targets the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness, and signs of aging. helps brighten the skin and targets the signs of aging. What is great about this powder if that it can be mixed with other treatments. You have to be really careful when mixing this with a serum or moisturizer. Any more than that was more than a tingle sensation. Personally, I mix less than what the spoon measures out for you. It takes some trail and error to figure out the amount and what serum/moisturizer it works best with. I like to mix with The Buffet, Squalane, or Do not mix this with Niacinamide or EUK 134. PROS: - Cruelty Free - Paraben Free - Didn’t irritate my skin - Face was visibly brighter within 2 weeks. - No Stickiness - You can’t beat the price! - Doesn’t have a short lifespan like most Vitamin C Serums CONS: - Can be grainy - Can cause pilling. I usually wait 20-25 minutes before continuing my routine - The powder can get messy

I’m so happy that I finally got my hands on 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder - 20g! It’s been sold out for something like 7-8mo now. I’ve done a lot of skincare research and this product has one of the highest (but safest) concentrations of Vitamin C on the market, affordable or expensive. I like that it’s easy to use because all you have to do is use the included spoon to add a little to your serum or moisturizer. Measure. Correctly. Too much will make your skin tingle! I would start with a third of the spoon, which I showed in the picture I included.

Way too harsh for my sensitive skin! I gave it two stars for the packaging and price. Very good. If you have the type of skin that handle this it's definitely worth a try, for the price it's not a big gamble. 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder - 20g

I thought I loved the [product:the-ordinary-vitamin-c-suspension-23%-ha-spheres-2] but this pure powder form blows it out of the water! I love LOVE that I can use this with my moisturizer or serum of choice. In 2 weeks I can already see a difference in my skin texture. Highly recommend!

I love this product! The powder is extremely fine and gives you the freedom to mix with any product you want. I use half a scoop of this with Marine Hyaluronics - 30ml and pat it into my face, during my morning routine. In just a few days, my face was glowing and bright. My hyperpigmentation has started to fade as well! The product is in powder form; therefore, it will last longer and is more stable. I will continue to repurchase this! #skincare

I was thrilled to find this L-ascorbic acid powder from the ordinary for under $6.00! I use a vitamin c serum on my face every day. The brand that I use on my face is very expensive and should be used up quickly because once L-ascorbic acid is exposed to air and light, it begins to break down. I wanted to find a body lotion with vitamin c in it at a strong percentage to lighten some sun spots that I have on my arms and legs. I really couldn't find anything worth the money to use on my body. When I saw the vit c powder from The Ordinary, i came up with an idea. I could mix the powder with another serum or moisturizer and see if it would work for those darn spots. So, ultimately, what I ended up doing is mixing a scoop of The Ordinary Vit C powder with about 1 dropperful of The Ordinary Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% serum then I apply it to my legs and do the same with my arms. Once it absorbs, I apply my regular body lotion, mixed with a drop of body oil. My arms and legs are soooooo soft when I do this routine and it's now been a few months and my sun spots are fading!!! I will continue to do this because the price is right and the results are real!

One of the best products that I have ever used o help resurface skins texture. A little goes a long way and I would only use 2-3 times a week.

Super great product for dark spots and wrinkles. I mix a little scoop with my retinol and apply it at night and I've dramatically noticed a difference in my skins appearance and texture. The pigmentation in my skin has evened up so much. I use it about 2 times a week because it's a really strong product

Well, this is not the version of Vitamin C I have from The Ordinary, but it was my only option 😞. I would very much like to try this product because of the stability of the form of Vitamin C. Topical Vitamin C is notorious for breaking down and oxidizing after an extremely short period of time. If it’s brown or dark yellow, it’s oxidized and has lost it’s effectiveness. I’ve done a large blog post on topical Vitamin C if you are interested at skin-the-know.com. Anyway, I’ve used [product:the-ordinary-ascorbic-acid-8%-alpha-arbutin-2%] and [product:the-ordinary-vitamin-c-suspension-23%-ha-spheres-2%] with great success. I use the [product:the-ordinary-vitamin-c-suspension-23%-ha-spheres-2%] as a wash off mask since it is a little too irritating for my skin to wear it overnight. It literally erases dark spots and reduces melasma in one 30 minute application. I love how inexpensive but effective T.O.’s products are. I definitely recommend experimenting with their Vitamin C derivative products. There are some definite winners in their line up. Next on my list is to buy and try [product:the-ordinary-100%-l-ascorbic-acid-powder]. I will update the review then. ❤️

AMAZING!!! I've used it about a week now and my skin has noticeably improved. You can cocktail it with almost anything in your skincare routine. It's made my skin brighter and alot more even in tone than it was. It's really potent so I would definitely work your way up to a few times a week if your sensitive

I use Passport to Organics or One Love Organics for more natural Vitamin C. I use VC every day and prefer both of those brands. The Ordinary tends to put too many unnecessary ingredients in their products for me.
