In other words, this product brightens dull skin and reduces signs of aging caused by skin discoloration and spots. It is not marketed to target wrinkles nor does it do so. That being said, I'm very impressed with this product! I was using it with noticeable results but then stopped--I became curious about other products from The Ordinary. However, after dabbling around this is a staple product in my medicine cabinet. Within 1 week of twice daily use, I can see my face looking brighter and more even. The freckles on my nose and on my cheek bones have diminished. I'm looking forward to see how my more obstinate sun damage responds to this product in the future but the overall brightening effect is enough of a reward! I also feel like it's not irritating, but the texture is sticky and can pill if you are layering with other products.
I have extremely oily skin with some small normal areas near the perimeter of my face. I purchased this serum to treat the hyperpigmentation on my jaw and neck and for an overall glow. I found this serum moisturizing and very comfortable. It absorbed easily and did not reacted badly with my daily essences, toners, acids, moisturizers and sunscreen. I used it twice a day for a month and then only once a day in the morning. I won't be repurchasing because, other than providing some moisture, I saw no discernible difference in my hyperpigmentation or the overall tone of my skin. If you are looking to add an vitamin c product for it's antioxidant benefits only this may work for you but I did not achieve the results I was after.
