The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution by The Ordinary

Overview

Designed to target textural irregularities and lackluster tone, The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution contains  7% Glycolic Acid, Amino Acids, Aloe Vera, Ginseng and Tasmanian Pepperberry.

 

Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use.

 

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% is further supported with inclusion of ginseng root and aloe vera for both visible radiance and soothing benefits.

 

This pH of this formula is approximately 3.6. Glycolic Acid has a pKa of 3.6 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic.

Note: While exfoliating acids can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD's Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a reference.

We suggest this product be used within 12 months after opening.

Immediate Results - 22-01-2019 by

I use this every day at night, and by a week of use i could definitely see results. My texture on my forehead went away, and my skins overall tone was improve. Breakouts also did not happen as frequently. I have combo-sensitive skin and this did not irritate or dry my skin out.

It's my once per week exfoliant - 17-01-2019 by

I love this product but only need to use it once a week! I don't believe it's good to over exfoliate. It's very gentle and a good starter for people who might be new to AHA.

Skin Adjusted to the Toner - 17-01-2019 by

I have dry skin and I occasionally use make up. I had previously never had a skin care routine.

I began using this product and I had barely broke out with pimples. After a while, i found that my skin had adjusted to the toner.

I had read previous comments, so I only use this product at night time.

Great toner - 15-01-2019 by

This toner is so good, it stings a little at first but it refines my skin and reduces my pores. I only use it once a day at night. I really miss it when I run out.

Great for a deep clean! - 15-01-2019 by

I have dry skin and I initially used this everyday to realise it was very damaging to delicate areas. I now use it twice a week around my nose and forehead with great results. A strong clean when you need it.

I love this! - 15-01-2019 by

I love this product! I have been using it everyday as part of my regime and makes my skin feel refreshed and clean! My skin is feeling healthy and smooth!

Best for hormonal acne - 14-01-2019 by

I love this toner!! why wasn't this around 10 years ago!
I no longer get small pimples on my jaw line and haven't had a bad break out since using this. I even purchased this for my sister

Good ingredients - 14-01-2019 by

I am a big fan of The Ordinary, but this toner was a little underwhelming. I don't really see the point of toners, I have not seen this toner have a big impact on my skin. I swipe a soaked cotton round on my face and neck at night. I don't find that it makes my skin any smoother or clearer. But it might work for others.

Effectively removes dull, dead skin - 14-01-2019 by

Im in my mid 50s and have very oily skin. My skin often looks dull and feels rough. I applied this priduct at night and from first use I noticed improved skin tone ( more pink and luminous) and improved texture ( not as dull and rough). Skin felt much softer to touch as well. I will certainly continue to use this product.

needed time to build up to it - 11-01-2019 by

When i first purchased this I started using it once a week and found it was quite strong. I am now halfway through the bottle and use it when i feel i need that little bit of a stronger exfoliation.

Great product - 09-01-2019 by

I have bumpy textures skin that is quite sensitive. I have only been using this for a week, I thought it may have been too strong for my skin but so far I have not had any redness or reactions. It makes my skin feel so clean and fresh and it has calmed down the tiny pimples on the sides of my face. I will continue to use this and discover more benefits.

Must have in your regime - 09-01-2019 by

I've been using Alpha H Liquid Gold for a while now and this does the same job at a fraction of the cost. I can't get over how incredible The Ordinary's products are. It's mind blowing and such a relief that I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on my skin every month now. The Ordinary has changed my life. Definitely give this product a try, I'm sure you'll love it!

Miracle for acne and blemishes - 05-01-2019 by

My 14 year old daughter was diagnosed with moderate acne and put on creams and tablets! Not happy with the results, we gave this a go and so happy we did! I read reviews on this site and it encouraged me to try it! She uses it in the morning after cleansing on a cotton swab and then lets her skin dry for 10 mins before moisturising. Her skin has cleared up to the point that she is off medication and all other creams etc. it only took about 2 weeks to see the redness and active flare ups gone! She then uses the niacide and zinc serum at night and the combination is amazing! I’ve gone through a lot of bottles but the price is so good and cheaper than acne treatments from the doctors so I just hope we never run out of stock!

Perfect for unwanted texture - 04-01-2019 by

I use this twice a week to remove any milias on my skin or texture. You can’t beat this honestly!!!!! It truly does what it says and is fabulous for pigmentation too.

God damn this stuff is good - 03-01-2019 by

This toner is the bees knees! Sometimes after a deep cleanse it can tingle, borderline sting (depends on sensitivity) but it works!

Love it! - 02-01-2019 by

Just love this toner. Onto my second bottle - lasts for ages and my skin just feels so fresh and clean after using it. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed!

There is a reason this product is often sold out! - 01-01-2019 by

I absolutely love this toner! It is often sold out so i always purchase a few at a time. It clears my pores and reduces the look of finelines by providing a light chemical exfoliation. I have been using it on my combination skin for over a year and love it!

Much Faster & Better Results than Expected - 31-12-2018 by

The aim of trying this product was to even out the texture of my skin (PM routine). I'm in my early 30's with normal skin prone to hormonal acne. The smell is almost a bit medical (but far from astringent). I actually don't mind that as I prefer my skincare products not to contain any unnecessary fragrance but just focus on the main ingredients. Also, it absorbs surprisingly fast into my skin. I always wait about 10 min before I layer the next products (Retinol & 1 hour later Vitamin C). I started using this every other night with positive results after only two weeks. My skin became firmer, less spotty and a lot smoother too (especially around the eyes & chin area). My hormonal acne is almost gone. I think this product can work a great deal for everyone with normal, oily to even dry skin. However, I could imagine that it might be a little bit intensive for people with very dry skin if applied every night. The bottle lasts for a good 12 months so this baby is bang for bucks, will definitely purchase again!

GLOWING! - 30-12-2018 by

You need this! It lightly exfoliates the skin and will leave you GLOWING! I massage lightly into the skin with my fingertips and then don't apply a serum or moisturiser for optimum overnight glowing effect! But only use maximum two times a week as it is very strong!

You think you don't need this but you do. - 28-12-2018 by

2 weeks ago I started using this product at night before the rest of my simple night routine.

My skin texture has improved significantly and I have now added this toner to my MUST haves.

Like most of The Ordinary's line, this stuff works and is not going to break the bank.

Excellent - 28-12-2018 by

This toner is a must have, I use it at night and it has really helped to keep my skin clear and helped with texture. This is pure active ingredients without fillers or fragrance. Highly recommend

Love The Ordinary - 27-12-2018 by

This is really improved the texture of my skin, particularly around my chin where I was getting hormonal acne! I also love the smell.

Good stuff - 25-12-2018 by

Liked this product i have sensitive skin and it didnt make me break out.

Favourite product from this brand! - 24-12-2018 by

In love with the product! I was worried about using it at first but it is amazing! I have oily skin, blackheads and blemishes! Since using this it has all reduced! I used this toner before applying makeup and it reduced how oily I was during the day. After using it, it dried out the small pimple I had and cleared my face up. Will definitely purchase again.

Worth a try! - 21-12-2018 by

This stuff has evened out my skin tone! However be careful when you go out in the sun as it can give you a sun burn as it is strong! Definitely use it at night time!

Comparable to Liquid Gold! - 21-12-2018 by

Can’t fault this toner. I would compare it to Alpha H Liquid Gold, minus the price tag.

Great product and great price - 20-12-2018 by

I have combination skin! You can’t go wrong with this! It’s a very mild toner, doesn’t clog pores and doesn’t rip the moisture on your skin which i really love. Will buy again

Quick results to remove dark skin pigments - 19-12-2018 by

I was excited after reading reviews to use this product and it certainly did not disappoint! I had dark skin pigments around my mouth and around my face from blemish scars and such, within a few days of using glycolic acid I noticed my lips looked more defined due to the darkness being removed. This is my favorite product from the ordinary I have used so far and I will no doubt be re-buying if I ever run out (it's a nice big bottle).

Best product! - 19-12-2018 by

A great preparation product, non-greasy and skin feels clean and smooth after the very first use. Doesn't leave any sticky residue and works well with all other products.

Fantastic, Low Cost, Toning Solution (for the whole body!) - 18-12-2018 by

I have (or should I say had) sensitive, very textured skin, with very visible pores and uneven tone. I've been using The Ordinary's Glycolic Acid Toner for just over 3 months now and it has totally changed my skin. What was once bumby, uneven with strawberry effect pores on my nose and cheeks, is now smooth, radiant and clear. I wish I could post before and after pictures here! This was my second glycolic product I have used, the strength of this did make my skin tingle for the first month or so but seems to be used to it now. The other thing I love about this is the size of the bottle, it's so affordable that I have been using it to get rid of all the ingrown hairs on my bikini line as well.

Perfect! - 17-12-2018 by

Best toner! I love The Ordinary skincare and this toner is one of my favourites. Even after double cleansing this toner removes even more impurities. It evens out skin tone, clears pores and makes my skin glow. It lasts for a long time with a great size bottle and is gentle enough to use everyday

#1 toner - 14-12-2018 by

I have been using this toner for about 2 months now and its excellent toner, and is as good or better than more expensive ones I've tried. It smells nice, and feels great on the skin. I can notice a difference in my skin when I use it. I use it after i cleanse every day and it has definitely helped with my excess oil

A good tingly feeling - 13-12-2018 by

I was most hesitant about this product from The Ordinary due to the sun-sensitive warning and my having never used glycolic acid in my skincare routine - I have tended to opt for hyaluronic acid products instead as they are the moisturising type of acid. After researching more on glycolic acid, I realised that I was perhaps missing out on an important element in my skincare routine that is using an exfoliating acid (as opposed to scrubs - which I have never liked). The first time I swiped this product on a cotton pad onto my freshly cleansed face, it definitely tingled all over. It wasn't painful, just a different and distinct feeling. The morning after, I checked my skin and there was no breakouts, no negative reactions but it did feel cleaner. I will continue to use this on a light basis and gradually build up use. I would recommend this for those without sensitive skin or if you have sensitive skin to do a test patch run first before swiping it all over your face.

Tingly goodness - 13-12-2018 by

When I first tried this product i thought it was going to send my skin into a frenzy and make me break out a lot, but it has done the complete opposite! My skin looks brighter and my dark spots are starting to fade as well. I have really sensitive skin that gets red really easily so I was apprehensive about incorporating an acid into my skin routine but it has done wonders. I will say however, that some skin types may be affected by it as I feel this isn't necessarily a product for every skin type, like really dry skin.

The only ORDINARY product I would buy! - 10-12-2018 by

This is everything you want in a toner, except with the added glycolic acid, you feel like its not just cleaning your face, but 'cleaning' your face. It is the only Ordinary product I will continue to buy! Everything else I tried was disappointing.

Really good but not for sensitive skin! - 06-12-2018 by

I have extremely sensitive skin and after using two nights in a row it left my skin so sore and red. However it has caused my skin to peel slightly and produce new skin which is incredible and means it working! I would definitely say this is a powerful product and due to the sensitive nature of my skin I only use it once per week. It’s such a great value for money the bottle is HUGE! I believe would last an entire year.

Dark spots - 29-11-2018 by

I recently finished a course of picosure laser and on my last treatment was left with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) on my face. After okaying it with my dermatologist, I bought this glycolic acid toner to help reduce the appearance of those spots. After only I week I notice that it had definitely started working. I'm currently rotating between this and a tretinoin cream at night and am loving this routine. It applies really easily and feels very fresh also.

This stuff cleans your face - 29-11-2018 by

I have combination skin, and I use this after I cleanse every night. It gets all the last bits of make-up that cleansing doesn't get. I love it.

Results after a few days of use - 29-11-2018 by

Have been using this product every night before moisturising and my skin has improved drastically - hyperpigmentation is already fading and my skin has become super smooth. I have sensitive skin so the only downside is the slight stinging sensation but that goes away fairly quickly.

Great toner, great price - 28-11-2018 by

This is an excellent toner, and is as good or better than more expensive ones I've tried. It smells nice, and feels great on the skin. I can notice a difference in my skin when I use it. It is quite strong, so I use it every 2-3 days. However, I have never had any adverse reactions.

Perfect! - 27-11-2018 by

Perfect toner, very light and doesn’t leave any residue. Great to prepare skin for other products.

THE ORDINARY GLYCOLIC ACID 7% TONING SOLUTION - 26-11-2018 by

This toner helps with all my pigmentation and discolouration. Very happy with this product.

Amazing!! - 26-11-2018 by

Absolutely love this toner. Bought it as I heard it was a dupe to the Pixi Glow Tonic.
It has not disappointed! Keeps my skin clear and my skin texture has improved. I have combination skin that tends to get dry and this has not irritated my skin at all.

Unbelievable value - 26-11-2018 by

This is my second product I've purchased from The Ordinary, after hearing about them on many skincare forums. This one in particular came recommended as many people's "holy grail" product, and I can see why!! After only a week I can already see major improvement in my skin's texture, lustre, and pore size. My skin looks so healthy! That being said, as with introducing any new active in your regimen, do expect some purging. Closed comedones that have been near my mouth and eyebrows for ages are (FINALLY!) coming to the surface as whiteheads that can actually be extracted. I can't wait to see where this product takes me in the next few months. Plus the bottle is MASSIVE and will last me for ages since I only plan to use it 2-3 times a week. Can't beat the price point and value of this product!

Love from day one - 25-11-2018 by

I'm only about a week into using this but I'm so glad I purchased it! Fabulous toner, my skin looks so great after applying it, it's the first step in my night time routine after I've cleansed my face. It does sting a little when I rub over certain areas but that's probably because I use a face brush with my cleanser and my skin is a little sensitive afterwards. I follow up with the 5% lactic acid and I don't feel that at all! Then a moisturiser and vitamin c facial oil, I wake up with the best skin and my face legit glows these days! my pigmentation used to be so patchy, and pimples no matter what time of the month. I adore the ordinary and I'm so glad I found this toner, especially for the size and price!

Magical - 21-11-2018 by

I used to use the ALPHA H liquid gold before I tried this once from The Ordinary. The ALPHA H Liquid Gold is stronger than this one so I cant use it on a daily basis, not saying that it you should.

After using The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution for a few weeks, I noticed a significant improvement on my skin, and I really mean it. It's dramatically better.

I have Combination Oily skin and prone to Acne, I use this every night combine with other products all recommended by ADOREBEAUTY staff, my nasty acne condition is almost gone now which I have been battling for 10+ years.

Now I just can't imagine my life without this toner!

Amazing - 19-11-2018 by

This toner is great, my pigmentation looks more uniform and my skin is glowing. It does feel a little tacky though so I pop some plain moisturiser over the top.

My skin feels and looks so supple and clear! - 19-11-2018 by

I have dry, sensitive and roascea so I was a little worried how this product would affect my skin. I have an oily t-zone with large pores and black heads. I've used this for a few days now and I need to say I am so pleasantly surprised! My skin is so smooth and soft! My skin did not react and burn which was relieving!
I also have kerasis on my arms and I put some there before moisturizing and it helps it stay smooth. Definitely worth it! Huge bottle, great results!!

Another great product by The Ordinary - 19-11-2018 by

I am in love with The Ordinary products and have recently added this one to my collection. It's a nice soft toner and you don't need much. I definitely only use at night.

A miss for me - 19-11-2018 by

I have been using this product for a while now and I'm really not a fan. I use it every day in the morning for the last couple of months and really haven't seen a significant difference with it in my routine. I'm comparing this product to the Alpha H Liquid God which was a game changer.

For reference my skin is oily/combination with occasional breakouts and I am 29.

The price point is fantastic but I really have not enjoyed using this product and have been trying to use it up so I can try other products instead.

I will definitely not be repurchasing this product and would recommend the Alpha H Liquid Gold over this product any day!

Great for the price - 16-11-2018 by

Definitely a great product if you are on a budget. It gets the job done. If you have sensitive skin, it may be a little irritating and it does sting the skin. If you have sensitive skin, I recommend using it every other day.

Nice toner - 16-11-2018 by

I like the toner but not so sure the glycolic acid does anything for my skin. My skin feels clean. It certainly doesn't refresh or brighten my skin complexion. I would buy this product again because of the generous size bottle. I always use toner as part of my skin regimen and this product is definitely value for money.

My skin is glowing - 12-11-2018 by

I recently added this glycolic acid in my skin care routine since 5 days ago. I was skeptical and afraid at first (due to the word 'direct acid'). Lo and behold. I can see improvement right from the first time I use it. I have combination skin type, dry on both cheeks, normal on other area. I use this after cleansing every PM, followed by 2% retinoid emulsion. I can see instant glow the next morning. I experience a bit of tingling sensation after applying this toner but nothing crazy. Plus, as a bonus, I tried wiping my armpits with used cotton pads saturated with the toner, it does make a very good deodorant too! Super impressed!

Same as Pixi glow tonic - 12-11-2018 by

Exfoliates the skin to leave it looking brighter and clearer

Textural and tonal issues gone! - 09-11-2018 by

Another great product from The Ordinary. At first I was hesitant about using as I do have sensitive skin. However, I was hooked on this product the first time I used it! Yes there is a tiny bit of a sting when you first apply it - it's actually quite a pleasant sensation though. Any textural concerns I have about my skin have gone. I have quite olive skin and it has really helped to enhance the colour of my skin - my skin is now glowing in a healthy beautiful way. I only use it a few times a week as I find it leaves a residue that takes a while to dry and that using a serum after makes it tacky. I like to use The Ordinary's Niaciminde and Zinc at night but I don't when I use this product. If it was less tacky and I could use my serums after applying I would use it everyday. I actually find it quite moisturising though and certainly not drying and have experienced no peeling or burning. It has really helped clean out and shrink the size of my pores as well as control an oily t zone as well as assist with dehydration.

Good for face and body - 05-11-2018 by

My face loves and needs AHA acids to keep it clear. This is one of the strongest glycolic acids out there so a little goes a long way. I have dry skin so I can't use it often. Twice a week is plenty. I gave it 4 stars because I find the finish on my face a little sticky. For my body though, it's great. Body creams and wipes with AHA acids are quite expensive and I go through it too quickly. This is a more affordable option. I use it with a cotton pad for my arms where I have keratosis pilaris, and this stuff keeps my arms as smooth as it can be and cleans out the pores.

Love it - 05-11-2018 by

I was nervous using this but it’s been amazing. My skin is definitely brighter in the morning. It’s not harsh on my skin. But also I don’t have sensitive skin. I just naturally increased my sunscreen use when using this and if I know I’m going to have a day out in the sun I don’t use it the night before, just to be extra cautious. A little goes a long way.

The best toner I've ever used - 02-11-2018 by

I never really felt like toners 'worked' before. I used to use Dermalogica products, and while that toner gave a cute tingle, I never saw any difference whether I used it or not. This is in another league entirely (at a fraction of the cost!!) and my skin looks brighter, smoother and for the first time ever (!!!) my pores are visibly tighter. Also, the size is great, it lasts and lasts. I can't recommend this product enough.

Smooth and clear - 01-11-2018 by

I am using this product most nights on my dehydrated skin, after cleansing and before my serum and moisturiser. It gives a slight tingle and seems to be making my pores a little smaller. I haven't had any sun sensitivity with using it and will continue to use it.

Amazing - 30-10-2018 by

This is probably the best toner I've ever used! I have very oily skin and I noticed a huge difference after just 2 days of using this product. Highly recommend.

This is a great product! - 29-10-2018 by

My fave product from the ordinary.
My skin is glows, dewy and rejuvenated after using this. I use it every night after taking my make up off, followed by hyaluronic acid 2% and a retinoid treatment.

leaves my skin glowing - 23-10-2018 by

I picked this product up a few weeks ago and must I say; it is amazing. After even using for a week, I had noticed a change in my skin; it was glowing and looked rejuvenated. For this price, I highly recommend this toner.

Nice toner - 18-10-2018 by

This is a good product. Makes skin feel and look clean and toned. I can't say it's made a noticeable difference to my skin, but it definitely hasn't hurt.

I absolutely love this product - 17-10-2018 by

I have changed a lot about my skin care regime recently but by far this product has caused my most significant change in my complexion and skin tone. It stings when going on but settles quickly, I have not noticed any lasting irritation. My skin feels clearer, less congested and my skin tone has significantly improved. 100% would recommend giving a go.
Tip: I transferred the toner from the bottle it is provided in, to a small spray bottle as I felt I was using excessive product (the original bottle doesn't not serve well for limiting how much comes out when using it).

Highly recommended! - 17-10-2018 by

I am very pleased I purchased this toner. I have quite sensitive skin and am prone to eczema patches (even on my face). This toner made my skin tingly the first time I used it and then not at all after that. The texture of my skin has improved and I am enjoying the friendly price tag too!

Great toner - 16-10-2018 by

Affordable, quality toner that's good for after you remove makeup for the day. The glycolic acid is perfect for toning as not too strong or weak. Definately reccommend.

Fantastic - 15-10-2018 by

This toning solution is fantastic! I use it at night about 3 times per week, before heavier serums, and in the morning my skin is soft, smooth, clear and looks 10 years younger. I haven't experienced the stinging that some people talk about, but my skin tolerates acids well. The bottle is huge and will last a long time - wonderful value. Honestly, the fresh look and feeling after using this is more dramatic than I can convey.... This is a fantastic solution to add into your skin care routine. Love it!

Love it!!! - 15-10-2018 by

I just use this 3 days ago and i can already say that it worked for me!! After using so many expensive skin care this one is the one that works, and the price is really affordable! Will continue using it and for sure buy another bottle after this one

Price, size and results are all amazing! - 15-10-2018 by

Love it! My skin feels firmer, starting to notice clearer skin and all my clogged pores are vacating. The price and size are amazing and will last forever. Using in conjunction with three other ordinary products. Heading over to do a second order, then doing a total bathroom cleanout.

Great toner! - 11-10-2018 by

Great toner, Well worth the wait for it to come back in stock.

Gentle and effective product - 11-10-2018 by

I bought this product as I have had success with many other The Ordinary products. I have sensitive, redness and uneven texture prone skin. Previously I was using Nip+Fab Glycolic Serum (5%) and had OK results, but given how great my other TO products are I jumped at this once it came in stock.

I've been using it for a week now and my skin looks great. Perhaps because I've slowly eased in acids, or because this super gentle, but I had tiny tingling on the first use but that was it. Bumps I had have gone down, the clogged sebaceous filaments I usually get around my nose have disappeared and the texture of my skin looked a lot smoother in the harsh fluorescent lights at my gym this morning! Loving it so far, and looking forward to further results.

Oh and the bottle of this is HUGE, it's going to take a lifetime to use it all, definitely worth the money when most other glycolic products of this strength and only half size are +$50!

toning and brightening - 10-10-2018 by

I'm new to toning, I wasn't sure what to expect. my skin feels clean and looks clear. it works well as an exfoliant, without drying. the bottle is big and should last a while

Nice - 10-10-2018 by

I use the toner solution every night after I wipe my makeup off.. I apply the toner solution on to a cotton pad and apply that all around my face after a couple of seconds you can see the difference and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed

Overall good toner - 07-10-2018 by

I'd found that this toner didn't have a great effect on me but overall, it's a good toner to use on daily basis and pretty good for price as well.

Maybe too strong for me - 07-10-2018 by

I bought this to help with some troubled areas, but the solution might be a bit strong for me since it stung a bit, especially where I had pimples.
I thought this might happen since I have pretty sensitive skin, so it's not a huge loss considering it only cost $14.50.

It did have a slight brightening effect, so I might use it again after my skin has become used to a lower percentage.

Great product - 07-10-2018 by

I have been using this product for a couple of months. My skin was dry & flaky yet congested around nose and sun spots on my cheekbone areas. Within few weeks of use I have noticed that my skin has got more even tone, no congestions and black heads, so smooth after I apply my foundation. In general, my skin texture was more refined and the brown spots are visible. It was almost 10x cheaper than my expensive BR p50. For this price, i would def repurchase.

Works wondrous! - 07-10-2018 by

You don't need much of the product for it to work, it does what the product says! Will be repurchasing once my bottle has been used up!

Cult Brand - 05-10-2018 by

I fall more in love with this range every time I try a new product. This toner is amazing and not too harsh on my sensitive skin. I literally glow after using it, I love it.

Rivals high end toners - 04-10-2018 by

I like this toner. It's simple but it does everything it needs to do. Also a big fan of the packaging, it's practical and cute. Gentle exfoliation and a nice scent. I highly recommend.

amazing! - 03-10-2018 by

I have combination skin so I get a lot of breakouts on my forehead. This bad boy cleared them up without any problem. I had a bit of purging when I first started using it, but after those pimples cleared, my skin has been so clear! Wonder product and my fave from The Ordinary

Not quite what I was expecting - 02-10-2018 by

I was hoping for a toner that was stronger and had a more noticeable effect on my skin texture. In hindsight it probably wasn’t the product for me. But it’s a great everyday product because it’s gentle. Perhaps if you have more sensitive skin you could tolerate this more than other toners.

Cured my pregnancy breakouts! - 02-10-2018 by

My skin went crazy when I fell pregnant, and this (paired with medik8 beta cleanse) did wonders. I have sensitive skin and at first it made my face feel warm after application, but it didn't burn. After a week I didn't feel any warm sensation at all. I also noticed it didn't dry out my skin like other toners I've used. I use it at night after cleansing, let it sit for a few minutes, then apply The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors. After a few weeks my skin almost completely cleared up.

top toner - 02-10-2018 by

I have been on a toner trying spree trying to find the perfect product for me. I am so glad I tried this product because I love it. It clears the skin really well but doesn't sting. It a great price and I love the screw top which makes it easy to get the product onto the pad. I liked the pixi glow toner as well but on price this one is going to be my go to regular product from now on. Worth a try.

A bit much for me - 01-10-2018 by

I do not have sensitive skin but this was a little harsh for me, maybe I needed to not use it as often as I was but after the first week I developed a very dry skin on one side of my mouth and haven't used it since.
I may give it another chance yet but be more wary of my application, how much, how often and where I apply it.

Love - 27-09-2018 by

I have combo-skin + sensitive areas on my cheeks so I was worried this would aggravate. Thankfully this was gentle enough yet works so well with my oily and congested forehead that I have seen such an improvement. I have also put this down to using TO's niacinamide. Huge bottle makes the cheap price even more amazing.

Nice product, not sure how effective - 24-09-2018 by

I purchased this as part of a new regime from the Ordinary. It smells nice and somehow feels like it is working. My skin is somewhat clearer but nothing groundbreaking for me.

I wish i could bought thisss - 24-09-2018 by

I would like purchase this some day when i visit Australia again.

Other brands are much expensivierrrrr


Have looked over for this in any other store and it was much expensiveeeee!!!

Purchasing my flight ticket now to go to Australiaaaa!!!!!

LOVE! - 20-09-2018 by

I use this morning and night! Leaves my skin so clear, smooth and glowy. HUGE bottle - it will literally last for ever (ok, maybe not forever!). I love The Ordinary products, my skin has never looked better!

Pretty Special Toner - 18-09-2018 by

Without stating the obvious look at the price and compare what The Ordinary have included into this Toner to make it so good...no great! Ginseng, Aloe and Tasmanian Pepperberry this is the special part. Soothing. I have normal/dry skin sometimes there’s a little tingle but no redness when applying after cleansing nothing more. It’s a quick way to exfoliate every couple of days, leaving my skin noticeably smoother, almost baby soft and definitely brighter.

Great product, great price! - 11-09-2018 by

I have combination skin, that is somewhat sensitive. My main issues are congestion and pigmentation. Within a few days of using this toner every night, my skin (esp across my congested t-zone) was super smooth. After not using it for a week while on holiday, I couldn't wait to get back to it and get my skin feeling soft again!

Feels fantastic - 10-09-2018 by

I have mature skin, subject to blackheads but dehydrated. This toner removes all my cleanser, leaves my skin feeling great and ready to absorb my serum.
Since using it I notice I have no blackheads and my skin looks brighter and more even toned.

An excellent value option - 04-09-2018 by

This does a comparable job to much pricier liquid exfoliants such as Pixi or Alpha H. Great value!

Keeps my skin bright! - 04-09-2018 by

This toner is gentle and has a light pleasant scent. When my skin is looking a little sad and dull, applying this makes it feel refreshed and glowy. Great value for money. This bottle will last many months, even a year if you don't use it everyday.

Omg! 2 days in a row and I can already see a difference in my skin - 30-08-2018 by

I would defo recommend this product! My skin had been misbehaving a little and I started using this at night before going to bed. It is ticklish at first and is sticky so I apply it an hour before bed and leave it on overnight. Did it for only 2 nights in a row and I noticed a massive difference! My face was glowing and the little troubling white pimples that had been recurring on my chin and cheeks just vanished! Been using it twice a week now and those pimples have never returned! 5 star for me!

Love this! - 28-08-2018 by

A great toner, for a even better price! Amazing results with the glycolic acid - comparable to Alpha H and Pixi Toner.

ok product - 27-08-2018 by

didn't love or hate this, just didn't notice much difference in my skin

One of the best tonics I've used - 27-08-2018 by

I'm using this tonic for over a month and have seen significant face skin improvement. Along with other The Ordinary products this is one of "must have". my skin is generally oily and with acne and I did not believe there are products that can improve so much the look of my skin.

Best thing for closed comedones - 25-08-2018 by

Cleared up all congestion and closed comedones, my skin is so smooth now!

My favourite product from The Ordinary - 17-08-2018 by

I've tried about 3/4 of The Ordinary products and this is my favourite. I wash my face and put this on as the first step before any other products.
Just love it. I'm in my mid 40's and have always had acne and rosacea. I noticed an immediate improvement in my skin using this that no other product has really come close to. I've been using it 6 months now and the results have remained consistent. They say use once a day but I do use it sometimes twice and had no irritation. I usually use their hyalronic acid to moisturise before bed after and then their Argan oil to seal the moisture in. But I keep my skin guessing my mixing things up with various products from The Ordinary.

For that price you can't really complain! - 16-08-2018 by

I was a manager of a spa for years and have 8 years beauty therapy experience so trust me when I say this is a great product! Sure, the products that I usually use are more active and may have slightly better results but they also cost well over $100 for 1/4 of the size.

This is a great toner for refining pores and keeping blackheads at bay. However, I wouldn't us this as my only exfoliator, I have pretty easily congested skin that still benefits from a peel mask and mechanical scrub twice a week.
