Hydrate : Yes. Post acne marks : Hmm (?)
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Blackheads, Fungal Acne (Malassezia), Large Pores, Sensitive Skin

First impression : Wow. The HA benefit is real , make my skin bouncy n hydrated. For brightening its clear up post hyperpigmentation, not for erythema issue. Takes time for clearing up , maybe 2 month or 3. Great texture , easily absord. Highly rec. for dry and oily skin as well

Not a fan at all

I feel like i haven't had much luck with the ordinary despite how hyped it is. My mum bought this for herself and i decided to try it for myself one day, as i am still searching for the perfect product to take care of my hyperpigmentation. After using it only ONCE at night, it gave me cystic acne and i only every get cystic acne if a product disagrees with me. Never using this ever again.

Underwhelming

I used this product for about 3 months but unfortunately did not see any difference in my acne scars. I think it did help brighten my overall skin tone a bit but nothing to write home about.
PROS: Nice texture, sinks into skin very fast and dries down like nothing, doesn't break me out.
CONS: doesn't do anything for acne scars.
