The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% helps to reverse visible signs of ageing, boosting the production of collagen and reducing dark spots and pigmentation.

Why you need it

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% is a potent anti-oxidant which helps to reverse many of the visible signs of ageing while brightening the skin. It contains a pure form of L-Ascorbic Acid, the most potent form of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen, which keeps skin firm and helps lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It's also one of the most effective ingredients for reducing pigmentation from sun damage, and helps reduce the redness and inflammation associated with acne. This formula is water-free, which stabilises the Vitamin C. It also includes a dehydrated form of Hyaluronic Acid which offers additional skin-smoothing properties.

You may find that The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% has a powdery feel as the formula does not contain silicones. This means the entire Vitamin C powder comes in contact with the skin, maximising its delivery.

how to use

The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension:

Apply a small amount to the face, ideally in the evening (although this product can also be used in the morning). You may experience a slight tingling sensation - this is normal and should not persist.

Key Ingredients

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid): A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C combats free radical damage, brightens the skin, boosts collagen production, and can help fade pigmentation.

HA (Hyaluronic Acid) Spheres: When HA is formulated as "spheres," it implies that the hyaluronic acid is in a dehydrated form, encapsulated within these tiny beads. Upon application to the skin, these HA spheres begin to attract moisture (since hyaluronic acid is a humectant). As they attract and absorb this moisture, the spheres swell, effectively "plumping" the skin from within. This can lead to a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a smoother appearance.

Q: What is The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%?
A: This product is a water-free, silicone-free formula that provides 23% pure L-Ascorbic Acid (a form of Vitamin C) combined with 2% Hyaluronic Acid Spheres. It's designed to brighten the skin, reduce signs of aging, and offer antioxidant protection.

Q: How do I apply this Vitamin C Suspension?
A: After cleansing and toning, apply a small amount to your face at night. Due to its potent formula, it's recommended to use it in your night-time routine, but if you use it in the morning, ensure you apply sunscreen afterwards.

Q: Can I feel a tingling sensation after application?
A: Yes, a tingling (and sometimes stinging) sensation upon application is common, especially if you're new to Vitamin C or have sensitive skin. This sensation should subside as your skin gets used to the product.

Q: Why does the product have a gritty texture?
A: The gritty texture you might feel is due to the high percentage of L-Ascorbic Acid powder in the formula. This texture can be minimized by applying another cream or serum after the Vitamin C suspension.

Q: Can I use it with other The Ordinary products?
A: Yes, but it's recommended to avoid using it at the same time as products containing Niacinamide or EUK 134 to maximize efficacy.

Q: Why combine Vitamin C with Hyaluronic Acid Spheres?
A: While Vitamin C targets signs of aging and provides antioxidant protection, Hyaluronic Acid offers hydration by drawing in moisture. This combination helps improve skin texture and maintain its hydration.

Q: Is this product suitable for sensitive skin?
A: Due to its high concentration, it might be too potent for those with very sensitive skin. If you're concerned, consider starting with a lower concentration of Vitamin C or doing a patch test before applying it to the entire face.

Q: How often should I use the Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%?
A: It's generally advised to start using it every other night to see how your skin reacts. If your skin tolerates it well, you can increase its usage to every night.

Q: Should I apply sunscreen when using this product?
A: Yes, Vitamin C can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Always wear a broad-spectrum SPF during the day when using this product, even if you apply it only at night.
