在找好用又便宜的精華液嗎?這個一向親民的品牌即將推出 2 款含維生素 C 的精華液,你絕不能錯過!

去年才成立,來自加拿大的護膚品品牌 Ordinary 一向是性價比高的代表,早前推出的一支粉底液得到了 2 萬 5 千人的 waiting list,讓網絡造成一片哄動。最近,品牌在 Instagram 宣佈即將推出 2 款精華液,消息隨即讓網民們大喊期待!那這 2 款精華液的吸引之處在哪呢?

Yes, we are writing about Vitamin C while our top-selling Vitamin C formula has been (and is) out of stock for over a month. If that doesn't make sense, please refer to our name… but it's coming back really soon. The Ordinary currently offers four Vitamin C formulations: Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA (C23), Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% (AG12), Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F (ATS20) and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% (MAP10). We are about to introduce two additional Vitamin C formulations to make things worse: Vitamin C 30% Suspension in Silicone (C30) and 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder (C100), both really affordable and both coming in July. Pure L-Ascorbic Acid (LAA) formulas (C23/C30/C100) are strongest but they sting as they are super potent. They are suspensions (since LAA is only soluble in water but it’s unstable in water) which means you must use tiny amounts per application to avoid balling up and product waste. C23 avoids silicones to maximize skin utilization of LAA and, as such, can feel a bit gritty despite the very fine mesh of LAA that we use. It can be mixed with hydrators to avoid this grittiness. C30 will include silicones to sting less and feel super smooth with no grittiness, but it will have slightly less skin utilization of LAA (which is why we included more LAA at 30%). C100 can be mixed with other formulas to incorporate LAA as you prefer. What does this all mean? If you want easy, use AG12 (water base) or ATS20 (light oil base). They are less potent but user-friendly to fit any regimen. If you want maximum LAA exposure, use C23 (can mix with other formulas) or C30. If you are an expert, use C100 (mix the powder with other products in your regimen). If skin brightening is your key goal with Vitamin C, use MAP10. Ideally, don’t use LAA formulas at the same time as retinoids or peeling acids; alternate between AM and PM. (PS LAA is soluble only in water but oxidizes quickly in water which is why water formulations of LAA are simply never a good idea regardless of how they are packaged. They turn orange due to oxidation and some products mask this change in colour with added ingredients that are orange.)

2 款精華液分別是 Vitamin C 30% Suspension in Silicone (C30) 和 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder (C100),都同用了維生素 C 在配方內。維生素 C 不但是一種對身體有益的營養素,對皮膚一樣有很好的功效。維生素 C 雖然是一種非常簡單的化合物,但使用起來就有點複雜,因為沒有一種維生素 C 配方可以適合所有人,所以品牌就推出了 2 款不同的配方任君選擇。

維生素 C 固然是一大吸引力,但最品牌一貫親民的價錢,也是讓人不得不入手的原因。據知 2 款精華液的訂價將會低於 $7 美金,加上 2 款配方都是濃縮配方,所以每次只需要使用非常少量就可以了。對維生素 C 護膚品有興趣的話,就要留意這 2 款精華液了!
