Living in sunny San Diego makes it hard to avoid sun overexposure. I’ve actually been a coconut oil user for a while and never really was much into skin care products. So, what matters most to me is simplicity and affordability. The Ordinary skin care line from the Abnormal Beauty Company is priced right, has pure ingredients (EWG approved) and is effective without many of the chemicals that pricier brands include. I rotate using the Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% as well as the Vitamin C Suspension at nighttime once a week to rejuvenate my skin. Ethical ingredients and not tested on animals too!
- Definitely gives a tingling feeling so go easy at first! I only use 1-2 times per week.
- I use the dropper to dab a drop on my forehead, cheeks, and chin then gently rub in.
- Rotate use with Vitamin C Suspension (feels gritty) for ultimate skin renewal
- Night time application only- makes skin sensitive to sunlight exposure.
A Helpful Review, from Cult Beauty:

Targeting fine lines and wrinkles, as well as scars, pigmentation and dullness, the water-free formula boosts radiance for a softer, smoother complexion.More info: Alpha Lipoic Acid is a highly potent antioxidant and can restore a renewed skin appearance, improving visible skin texture and tone when applied topically.
