On my second tube of this product - I have seen improvement in terms of the texture of my skin, it has smoothened out and with the appearance of dark spots. This product has definitely helped in lightening some of my pigmentation and scars. I have fungal acne and this does not trigger more fungal acne. I use this in conjunction with other acids, and find that this works well with them and does not irritate my skin. I do have slightly sensitive skin and this product sits well with my skin. I actually find that this product slightly mattifies my skin, and also applies on really smoothly. I use this product as the last step of my skincare routine, this does not pill up unlike some of the other The Ordinary products. For the price point, this product is definitely worth it - highly recommended and is a staple in my routine!

My skin is super sensitive. Whenever i treat spot acne and blemishes with this guy, it always turn out flamed red. Yes, it dries out my acne just overnight but it is so harsh on my skin. Take days to calm my redness after using it. So sad to not be able to love this one.

Great alternative to pricey Azelaic Acid products

Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I have rosacea, and it has always been a struggle finding products that help even my skin tone and that my sensitive skin can handle. I've known for a while that Azelaic Acid is one of the best products for my skin, as I've used Finacea in the past. However, Finacea can cost upwards of $200 these days for a small tube, so I needed to find an alternative that wouldn't aggravate my skin. With all the buzz lately about The Ordinary, I decided to try their Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%. When I first put it on (I use it at night, after I've cleansed but before I put on moisturizer), I noticed that the texture was very silky, and the product is so easy to apply. I just dab it in the spots I need it most, then spread it across my face. After only two weeks of using it, I noticed that the redness of my cheeks had faded a little, and some of my acne scarring was starting to fade as well! It's been several weeks now that I've used it, and the results just keep getting better and better. The only downside I've noticed is that sometimes, I'll get some small whiteheads after using this product on my cheeks (particularly near my nose). I'm wondering if that's due to the silicon base - not sure, though. In any case, a few tiny whiteheads...that's a small price to pay for the benefit of clearer skin. I've added this to my regular nighttime routine, and I'm excited to try more products from The Ordinary!
