I'm 48 with a pretty dehydrated and sensitive skin that's been my issue since teenage years even with bouts of eczema. I was looking to switch up my routine at night and have been using this product fairly regularly - normally for four or five days on the trot, and then giving my skin a break with a slightly softer Vitamin C formulation - and have really enjoyed the results so far in about 6 weeks of use. The product glides on and you could say that it leaves a sort of velvety barrier over which any other treatment like an oil and then night cream for example, can easily be applied. It does tingle quite a lot when you apply and will feel quite warm for a while but, so far, I haven't experienced any adverse reaction at all. When combined with The Ordinary's Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane at night, I wake up to a skin that looks much smoother and more even in texture pretty much immediately after use on day one. The skin around my eyes is noticeably plumper with many fine lines filled out, and the most striking result so far is that my previously dull complexion looks much brighter and healthier. The skin feels energised and I've found that as the weeks go on, my skin seems to have strenghthened and readjusted itself - going from being pretty lacklustre, dry and tired, to something quite opposite. I will try The Ordinary's other Vitamin C product once I get thorugh this one, just to sample a different texture, but all in all I would recommend this product for its efficacious treatment and its very purse-friendly pricepoint. A little goes a long way too, with just a couple of squeezes of the tube being ample to cover the face and neck. Very satisfied; I would keep this in my skincare arsenal to boost the skin and keep it strong.
I have never used the Ordinary before and after ordering it, I tried it on at night.So glad I ordered this cream. It takes a few drops of it, as it is quite concentrated. Its really easy to apply, sinking into your skin effortlessly. Amazing product at this price range.
