Try & simply love the texture of this Obagi Peofessional C Peptide Complex. Its so smooth, lotion like and absorb beautifully.
The first glance at the ingredient list also makes me so excited. #Tetrahexyldecylascorbate , #Magnesiumascorbylphosphate are 2 derivatives of Vitamin C that suitable for anti aging and sentive skin.
Couples of peptide, hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E, B5... which all appear to be everything one needs in a bottle.
And hey, I just mentioned bottle, didnt I? The packing is sturdy and has pump so you dont have to worry about this $95 serum gets oxidized.
#DECIEM All are re-purchased items. #MagnesiumAscorbylPhosphate is one that I really enjoyed using. It was part of a skincare regime that made me decide to try as many #TheOrdinary products as I could. #VitaminCSuspension was one of the products I thought I would not touch again but I bought it again to mix in with my body moisturiser. #AzelaicAcid is one that was just alright but I use it before sunblock and it seems to work nicely with makeup. Now the trend seems to be back to basics, it would be interesting what I will miss using enough for me to purchase again.
✨The Ordinary Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10%✨
Claims to be a brightening hydrator with stabilised vitamin C derivative. I've had this for a really long time and I think I'm 3/4 done with this. Honestly it's a tricky product, after using it for so long I can't decide if it's good or effective. It did brighten my acne scars to a small extent and I guess that's it. It absorbs fast and doesn't leave a greasy finish! Overall wouldn't repurchase because the effect is too small☺️
Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F [Italiano☟] Or Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate.
It's an Ascorbic acid derivative. I decided to introduce vitamin C slowly, starting with the milder derivatives. I chose this because it was the only option left: MAP 10% is silicon-based and mainly a brightening agent, which I don't need, and AG Solution 12% has Aminomethyl Propanol in it, declared harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects by the EU - Classification & Labelling.
I use it in the AM. It has a super super light consistency, so I apply it directly to my face; five drops are enough, included the neck. It's in a coconut-derived oil solution which is said to be comedogenic (not a fan of the "comedogenic "science" " tbh), but it has never made me break out and when my skin is more dehydrated it actually drinks it. It may also have a balancing effect, thanks to vitamin F (= essential fatty acid) and the jojoba oil. The sidenote-to-me brightening effect is evident. It doesn't cause any pilling afterwards.
A few weeks ago the amazing @kindofstephen gave my quite a (healthy) scare with his post on vitC derivatives (5 February post). After some digging, with my ignorant and humble means I decided that regarding the less effective part, since for me it's only a transitional product and I'm in my early 20s I can use this until January, when I plan to switch to Ascorbic Acid.
Regarding the much more scaring UVB induced lipid peroxidation ("the oxidative degradation of lipids. The process in which free radicals "steal" electrons from the lipids in cell membranes, resulting in cell damage", thanks Wiki), this has been demonstrated (not unanimously?) only regarding another lipid-composed derivative, Ascorbyl Palmitate. But since it is thought that the culprit may be the lipid component, this could be valid also for others lipilized compounds, such as our AT. With this in mind and the previous early 20s+transitional, I think I still feel safe enough to keep using it. Correct me if I'm wrong! ⏬ keep reading in the comments ⏬

A brightening hydrator with stabilized vitamin C derivative
Teksturnya yg sedikit oily membuat cream ini mudah diratakan. Nggak ada rasa panas, perih, gatal, atau tingling mengingat kandungannya yg merupakan gentle version of vitamin c. Cream ini meninggalkan kesan shiny di kulit, mungkin karena kandungan oil, tapi nggak lengket atau pliket. Aplikasi sunblock dan foundation nggak ada masalah, selama layer dibawahnya tidak terlalu banyak. Seringnya aku nggak pakai day cream lagi kalau pakai ini, dan kulitku nggak pernah jadi kering. Tapi, kalau aku pakai primer sebelum foundation yg mengandung silikon, ini kadang oke kadang kacau. Belum ketemu juga salahnya dimana, kadang nggak masalah pakai primer, kadang make up aku malah jadi cakey dan retak-retak gitu.
Untuk kemampuan brighteningnya nggak gitu kelihatan sih, mungkin karena aku juga pake shark sauce dan lactic acid yg dimana dua ini udah terbukti efek cerahnya dari sebelum pakai MAP. Nah, sejak pakai MAP nggak ada perubahan yg signifikan dalam soal mencerahkan. Kesimpulanku sih mungkin ini terlalu gentle, jadi mungkin butuh waktu lebih lama untuk kelihatan efeknya. MAP ini juga nggak bikin aku breakout, padahal sebelumnya selalu breakout kalau pakai vitamin C.
Belum yakin mau repurchase karena mau coba Resveratrol & Ferulic Acid, dan ada euk juga.

// MAP - Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
The Ordinary: Decoding.. A bit of background info about MAP because not everyone is a scientist and may not know what on earth MAP is or in fact what half of The Ordinary products are!
A form of Vit C which is known for its antioxidant, hydration and in this case (10%) to treat uneven skin tone.
Initially when opening, something I found bizarre was it felt as though the tube was not full. There was air as if I'd been using it already. I trust it had the claimed 30ml in there 👀
Anyway.. after a couple of weeks usage I'm getting a good feel for the product and I do enjoy using it. My skin definitely looks brighter, however I confess 🖐 I've also had a (low down time) chemical peel within that time.. which is GREAT btw. DM me and I can recommend 👍🏻
For now, I'll keep using until I'm running on empty.
Goodnight skinbees, I hope you've doublecleansed 😉

우선 국내 판매가 안 된다고 하는, 가장 기대했던 아하 30 바하 2 부터 츄라이해 봤습니다. 엄청 강한 경고와 함께 뭐 필링에 익숙하지 않은 사람은 주의하고 팅글링이 있을 수 있고 10분을 초과하지 말 것이며 어쩌고 저쩌고 -> ?? 나 뭐 바름?
씻고 나서도 ?
#theordinarybuffet 바르고 나서도 ?
#magnesiumascorbylphosphate 바르고 나서도 ?
아, 다 바르고 나니까 냄새가 묘하게 구려요. 내 그것 하나 알겠고 나머지는 모르겠습니다 내일 아침에 일어나서 얼굴 쓸어보면 알겠지요! 이틀 후면 나는 해방이다(해방 아님 원래는 공부해야 함)😙.
저 근데 #데비타 필링패드 썼을 때보다 훨씬 피부에 아무것도 안 느껴져요. 데비타는 아하 퍼센티지는 기억이 안 나고 바하가 3프로인데 훨씬 자극적인 느낌이었거든요...... 뭔 베리 성분이 들어가 있어서 시뻘겋다고 합니다. 나중에 여러분이 필요하시다면 생명과학과 학사로서 필요한 부분을 번역해 보겠으나 다들 고학력자셔서 아마 필요가 없으실 것입니다 niacinamide를 번역하여 나이아신아마이드라고 쓴들 그게 무슨 소용이겠어여.

#CultBeautySkincareChallenge Day 2: Wishlist 📝💭💸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am doing a terrible job of keeping on top of this and it's only day 3!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥑PIH Regime: Over the past few months I've been working on reducing my acne with a combination of @paulaschoiceuk 2% BHA, and @deciem The Ordinary's 2% Retinoid, and Niacimide 10% + Zinc 1%. It's paid off! My skin hasn't looked this clear since before puberty. Now I'm planning to tackle my acne scars AKA Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). I'll be using @deciem The Ordinary's recommended regimen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wishlist: The Ordinary's Alpha Arbutin 2%, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Solution 10% (vitamin C), and Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥑Alpha/Beta Hydroxy Acids: I'm thinking about switching up my acids. Currently I use @paulaschoiceuk BHA 2% and I love it, but I'd like to try an AHA. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wishlist: The Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution (weekly) and Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution (daily).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥑Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone is a highly effective PIH treatment. It's controversial as there are some dodgy preparations containing trace amounts of mercury, and a small number of darker skinned people find it darkens skin instead of lightening it. In the UK you can get hydroquinone via a prescription from a doctor. Non-prescription hydroquinone is banned. So long as it's a low percentage and comes from a reputable company hydroquinone is a perfectly safe and effective treatment for PIH, but before I try it I will be having a conversation with my GP. The NHS, Futurederm and Paula's Choice have some great articles on hydroquinone if you'd like to learn more.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wishlist: @palmersuk's Skin Success Fade Cream.
So good to know so we can better help

Anyone ever used the popular laxative, Miralax?! 😬 Were you aware that it contains polyethylene glycol as the active ingredient which causes extra water to come into your intestines and loosens the stools. That doesn't sound so scary, right?! But did you know that polyethylene glycol is a petroleum derivative compound made from ethylene glycol which is found in antifreeze! 😵🤦🏼♀️ Plexus BioCleanse, on the other hand, uses a blend of Magnesium and Vitamin C to form the most gentle form of magnesium for your digestive system, Magnesium Ascorbate. Magnesium ascorbate is non-acidic (pH neutral) and gentle on the digestive system. Vitamin C plays a vital role in collagen formation, amino acid metabolism, hormone synthesis, and the body’s immune system.
To me, it's a no brainer -- taking a mineral my body needs and is often already deficient in vs consuming a poison? I'll take the mineral in BioCleanse.
I think I'll pass on the antifreeze! Anyone else? 😬🤣
