Product Description

Wake up to your brightest, most radiant complexion yet with The Ordinary's Ascorbic Acid + Alpha Arbutin serum.

This solution is a powerhouse when it comes to sorting out dull and ageing skin. Bursting with powerful ingredients, the serum utilises vitamin C in order to brighten skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and age spots. Not to mention, a 2% dose of alpha arbutin (a highly-purified biosynthetic ingredient), is suspended in the formula and works to lighten dark patches and correct uneven skin tone and texture.

The serum is water-free, lightweight and never leaves behind a greasy residue on skin. Apply it in the morning (be sure to follow up with a high SPF) and evening and look forward to revealing a healthy, transformed complexion.
