Description

Alpha Arbutin is a biosynthetic active ingredient that targets the look of spots and overall uneven skin tone. It is used at a high 2% concentration versus the commonly used concentration of 1%. The formula is supported with the inclusion of a next-generation form of Hyaluronic Acid for enhanced skin availability. Alpha Arbutin is much stronger in effect than Arbutin or Beta Arbutin for visible skin brightening.

This product truly makes a difference. It helps fade post acne marks and hyperpigmentation a lot faster than it would naturally. I had a breakout recently and ran out of this product... after my breakout my marks have been taking really long to even out with my skin. So I am about to repurchase again.

I bought this to add HA to my routine but hated how the HA +B5 serum made my skin feel sticky. This isn't and feels like water or aloe Vera gel but thinner. Really nice! I don't have dark spots so I don't know how it works for that but I love to use this for added moisture. I have combination oily skin and it doesn't feel greasy on my skin. About to buy my second bottle.

It's very lightweight like water which I love! I put it on first and then add my other serums over it. So far I am liking it - have only used it for a week so far!

I see a lot of the comments are saying it doesn't work and it might be due to skin type as well. I have normal/combo skin and it worked perfectly on me. I usually pair this with a vitamin C serum and it works twice as fast. You could also use it under armpits and other affected areas.

I love this stuff! It doesn't work on every spot, but it has definitely lightened a lot of them! Use it for a few months as often as possible, use spf everywhere you are exposed to the sun and then you should be able to cut back to using this product a few times a week while still using spf daily.. I use it about 3x a week now. Great affordable brand!

I've had acne for years and was left with acne scars. My skin is very prone to break outs and scarring. For reference I have very oily skin. This is the only product that has cleared my scars so fast. It took about a month to see results. The product dries down quickly and i use it under makeup. This is something i would buy again and its better than anything a dermatologist has recommended.

It does everything it claims to! I had really bad cystic acne and was on some topicals and antibiotics for a while to get it sorted. Afterwards I had to come ip with a routine that would keep my skin clear and help with the damage done during my breakouts. My routine has this product, their salicylic acid, and their niacinimide and zinc as well as their natural moisturizing factors lotion(at night) I've had clear skin for about a year now, no more breakouts, no more hyper pigmentation, and I'm starting to see my scars fade! I love it!

I suddenly had hormonal acne on my cheeks in my early 30's. It only lasted about 6 months but it left behind scars that almost looked like acne themselves. They were red and very noticeable. I started using this serum over 3 years ago and they are almost completely gone. These were pretty bad scars. I didn't even have scars from puberty acne. I'm a licensed esthetician and I even use this product. I also use lactic acid and acid peels to help with the scarring. The people who are expecting results in weeks are not being realistic. It takes a long time of consistent use of any product to see results when it comes to dark spots and scarring. Like I said I use this plus professional treatments and there's still a hint of my scarring left. If you use this daily you will notice a change in a couple months but don't expect it to be drastic. These aren't magic potions. As an esthetician I think the ordinary has great products especially for the price.

This is a derivative of hydroquinone and is formulated to use with the ordinary's niacinimide serum. You have to apply the AA first (it will be a little sticky) then apply the niacinimide over it. Bother are so inexpensive it's easy to pick up both to use. I will never go without either one again. I will say you will run out of niacinimide faster then AA maybe due to texture so I usually get 2 bottles of each when purchasing. The niacinimide serum lightens dark spots and keeps my skin clear but all of this happens much faster for longer when in combination with AA

This is quite literally my holy grail of all of my millions of random skin products. As long as it's used regularly, you will most likely watch as any red bumps disappear. I love it so much.
