I am so excited to share my impression because this is my very 1st time trying out powder L-Ascorbic Acid. If you have no idea about this ultimate ingredient, let me share with you.
L-Ascorbic Acid is AHA and it’s use for anti-ageing skincare. It work as anti oxidant. I am going to share for those of you who is just new to my blog about the benefit of this particular ingredient, so you know the reason why your skin need it and when to insert it on your skin.
To explain more about skincare ingredients, the ingredient that I deemed as important for sensitive and acne prone skin is Ascorbic Acid, Ferulic Acid, T-Retinoin/Retinol, Glycolic Acid, and Centella. All of this ingredient work to brighten and lessen acnes. Just for your own information, please don’t be an internet consumer – some people using a particular skincare because influencer use it.
Let me tell you the hard truth about skin. If you feel there is a REAL PROBLEM, then you may need to go to the beauty clinic for consultation and think if you need to solve it. For example, post acne scar that makes holes around skin can only be fixed by laser not skincare.
BUT, if your skin doesn’t need that skincare. Don’t use it. Skincare is for protection and sustain. It doesn’t work to make your skin more ‘good’ or ‘beautiful’. Except, going into constant treatment at the beauty clinic. It work like a medicine or vitamin, and beauty clinic work like you undergo a small surgery that needed proper attention.
I am too going to beauty clinic yet I haven’t go for 10 years, however, I have flaw in my skin that can be cover with makeup such as big pores and constant red spot around cheek that cannot be solve by skincare so, I have to go to beauty clinic yet since I haven’t get any income during these few years. I hold to go to the clinic. The cost is high yet my skin needed it right now.
BENEFIT OF C SERUM
AHA’s work to lessen wrinkle by plumping and brighten skin. It does better when you also apply glycolic acid because this both ingredients work like a best friends. The strongest C serum will make your skin feel a tingling, that only mean that the C serum is gonna work in your skin. However as I tested out different C serum, it seems like my skin start to build immunity for this particular ingredients. The longer I use, the tingling is lessen.
Also, fighting with radical environment and pollution or even when you use makeup overtime. This ingredient working as anti-oxidant for your skin and in result it minimise your skin chances from aging.
BRIGHTENING AND PLUMP SKIN
I spot this ingredient could also work to brighten up and plump skin. This is one of ingredient that I believe could make my skin tone back to the my original skin tone. Other than that is Niacinamide.
It’s also work to make skin plump. This skin plumpness is not something like make your skin chubby in the senses like it’s gonna make your face rounder. Skin plumpness meaning that your skin have nice elasticity and you will feel your skin soft without any holes or big pores. It’s smooth.
The skincare that MUST make the plumpness is essence especially when the brands claimed their skincare contain pitera ingredients.
LESSEN ACNAIC, AND WHITE/BLACK HEAD
It’s proven to lessen acnes and white/black head in appearing in my skin. I constantly share this benefit to my audience. I have big stone like pimples so I mostly press on with cotton contain glycolic acid and then use C serum after that. You can always use Tretinoin and spread it across the problem area during the night. The pimples will turned small overnight.
ABOUT (THE BLURB)

WHAT IT ACTUALLY DONE?
I personally wanted to like the powder L-Ascorbic Acid. The reason I purchases it because I thought it will perform better than the liquid.
After sometime using it, I realize how fussy this skincare for someone who need to wakeup 5:40 am for work. The powder need to be use alongside with other liquid skincare. On this matter I use SecretKey essence to mix together.
Does that means it will make my skin better than any of previous skincare? the answer is nope. It is work like any of skincare that I previously use yet for this product alone. I may be better to just change back to Timelesssha C+E Ferulic Acid.
The part of mixing with other skincare is what makes me listed it as fussy skincare. I have to open the lid put it in my palm, then try to be very cautious then mixed it with essence.
Yet in the end it doesn’t done less than Timeless C+E Ferulic Acid while I have to do all the fuss. I just feel that The Ordinary skincare is an affordable product for skincare but not all of them product can be use for my skin. This is probably me being unlucky because if most of The Ordinary skincare can be use for my skin, I can reduce my expenses for skincare.
But skin want different product to be use. So I am letting this one go.
