Most Helpful Positive

Loving my skin

MJ

I’ve used this toner for almost a year now and love it. My skin is normally sensitive as I have to use prescription cream on my face, but I haven’t had any issues. It worked so well on my face that my 18 year old son has taken ownership of my previous bottle so have had to replace it!

Most Helpful Criticism

Slightly dries my skin

S.A.

I do like it, but it tends to dry my skin. I only use it at night, and make sure to put hydrocloric acid.
Havn't seen any results from this as yet.
I use it every second night, and follow it up with some acids/serums from TO.
  1. Loving my skin

  2. Great on a budget

    Frances

    I have quite dry skin already and I find my skin to come out even more dry after using this, but it's great for evening out my skin tone and clarifying - for the price it's does a great job
  3. Good product, too harsh for me to use consistently though

    Madeleine

    I really enjoyed this when I first started using it, however I believe I used it too frequently and it ended up drying my skin and causing breakouts. I'd still recommend it, particularly to people with oily skin, but if you've got sensitive or dry skin it might be too harsh to use more than once or twice a week.
  4. Affordable toner

    Michelle

    I have used toner for my facial regime for many years and feel like it really has a positive impact on my skin. I have replaced my other toner for this one (for evening use only) which is more affordable. It has performed very similar to my previous toner (which I now only use in mornings) but it is more affordable. May see more of a difference with longer use.
  5. Worked Wonders

    Tanya

    This is the most effective product for removing dark spots and hyperpigmentation. It is a great chemical exfoliator and brightens skin and reduces the appearance of acne marks significantly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND for those suffering from dark spots from acne and dull skin.
  6. Good Product if you are on a budget

    Joanna

    I really liked this product for the price, I used daily at night after cleansing or exfoliating. Prepares the skin for other products. However, if I had to compare to similar product which I also use Alpha-H Liquid Gold & I feel this is a better product, but it is more expensive.
  7. Nice toner but not sure it makes a huge difference

    Michaela

    I use this toner every second night and it seems to be okay. You have to be careful and make sure you don’t have any recently popped pimples or had any extractions done as it will sting but the sting doesn’t last long. Overall I think it’s a good toner but I haven’t seen much of a difference, maybe I need to start using it every night instead.
  8. The smell might put you off...

    Parnika

    Its a good toner but the smell might be a bit too much for some people. Personally it doesn't bother me but i might get a different toner next time

  10. Amazing stuff

    Marguerite

    I’ve never been a fan of toners and thought they were a waste of money. For the price point of this baby I thought I had nothing to lose. I’ve been using it everyday after cleansing and before I layer my serums and retinoids. It has made such a huge difference to the texture of my skin. It looks clear, feels soft and although it tingles my skin isn’t raw or irritated. I’ve also noticed that my skin is less congested. Overall very happy.
  11. Strong but gentle acid

    angela

    When I used it for the first few times it did sting a bit but made my skin a lot softer after a week or so. Don't use it a day or two after skin treatments or waxing/threading because it can make it quite painful. This toner also helps remove the last bits of makeup you might've missed.I'd also recommend giving this about 10-15 mins to absorb in and do its job before you start layering other products on top so the pH of this product doesn't get disturbed and lose its effectiveness.
  12. As effective as dr Dennis gross

    Caity

    I used to spend a bomb on pre soaked glycolic pads, but this solution is amazingly priced and does the exact same thing
  13. Tingly.

    Neysa

    Certainly made my skin tingle. Wasn't bad, but felt odd.
    It seems to have helped my red cheeks quite alot.
    Looking forward to the results of long term use,
  14. great way to get renew skin look!

    Jeongsu

    you must follow instruction as long as you do so, you will see the change and difference! by far amazing result from this product!
  15. No irritation toner

    Nicole

    Both my son and I have now used this toner for a week. My son has oily acne prone skin. It has helped improve his current breakout and brightened his complexion. I found it also brightening on my skin and has helped reduce pores especially on my checks. My concerns are ageing skin. Both of us use this in conjunction with the 5% lactic acid twice a day and neither of us has experienced any irritation or burning sensation when applied..
  16. Loving it!

    Taegen

    I’ve been using this as part of my morning routine in conjunction with the other ordinary products recommended on the blog for pigmentation. Sometimes my skin can be a bit sensitive and I haven’t had any issues using this. It has a pleasant smell and I’d recommend it :)
  17. Still waiting for results...

    Emma

    This arrived two weeks ago and I have been using it every night all over my upper arms in an effort to get rid of all the little bumps (k.p). On the upside this is a huge bottle of the price, smells quite nice (almost coconutty to my nose for some reason) and sinks into skin really quickly. However I am yet to notice any real improvement (but no negative side effects like stinging either which is a bonus). I’ll persevere.
  18. Fave toning solution

    Honey

    I love this product.. i never had a irritation using this. My main concern is my skin texture. I have flakey skin. After using this toning solution i noticed that my skin get soft and smooth. My acne scarring is getting lighter too.
  19. The ordinary

    Cassandra

    This product is amazing have only been using it for a week and the difference it has made to my skin skin is amazing
  20. Great

    Angela

    Love this toner, it brightens the skin and removes impurities while giving you a great glow. Be cautious however, I accidentally used it with my retinoid serum and the next day my skin was itchy as anything! Other than that (my own mistake) I will continue to use this as I love it and it comes in a large bottle that lasts.
  21. Product Not Right For Me

    Tasha

    Hi i am almost 50 years old and skin is pretty good overall with no noticeable lines and pore size is fairly small
    My skin is dry and inclined to be sensitive
    My major concern is ageing and loss of firmness
    I spoke with an online Adore adviser who recommended this product to use ever second night as an additional step to exfoliate and encourage cell turnover / renewal
    I was concerned this may be too strong and was more interested in Latic acid with pepper berry as that product appeared more in line with sensitive and my needs however i purchased based on recommendations and product is too strong for me
    i found even just one application causes small pimple like things around my nose and lower cheeks . which are filled with fluid and very itchy and sore.
    I have used it a couple of times on my 14 year old daughter where she gets pimples and congestion and has worked ok but definitely no miracles happening
  22. Love it

    Maria Elisabeth Diane

    cheap but very high quality! cleanse and hydrate the skin, my skin is very smooth after using this
  23. Amazing for price

    Emily

    Loveeee this!! I can use it a couple of times a week on my sensitive skin, and you get so much product!!! It's comparable to Pixi glow toner.
  24. Great for oily and acne prome skin

    Sarah

    I use this every morning as a toner. Exfoliates well and leaves my skin feel smooth. Has helped reduce oil production on my skin
  25. Love it

    Kate

    I tend not to apply this to my whole face as I can suffer from dryness sometimes but I do soak a q tip in it and apply it directly on any pimples I get and it gets rid of them so quickly! The bottle is going to last me forever!
  26. Love this Product for Lazy Nights

    Jennifer

    This product is great for nights when I'm residual drunk and can't be bothered doing my entire nightly routine after my shower. I find this product causes some momentary stinging and redness but nothing dramatic and certainly nothing that has ever substantiated to anything.

    I only ever use it sparingly (lazy nights, one or twice a month or when I feel my skin needs a kick) as I find it is a great sort of high power cleaning toner and so don't want to overwhelm my skin with it. My skin looks bright and tight the next morning, but my favourite part about it is it never dries out my skin which I've found happens with toners.

    Also huge amount of product consider how little you actual need to get the job done. I've had the same bottle for nearly a year!
  27. Cheap yet effective

    Katherine

    I’ve been hooked on Alpha H liquid gold, but I love The Ordinary products so gave their glycolic acid a shot. Thus far loving the exfoliation and price point. I’m using it in the same way as Liquid Gold - applying 2-3 times per week at night after cleansing. My skin is looking bright and clear without any redness. Total recommend.
  28. Amazing for oily skin!!!

    Fai

    Amazing!!! I have oily acne prone skin and this improved the visibility of my pores and faded acne scars and prevented hormonal breakouts. Love it!
  29. Amazing exfoliant for the money

    Jenna

    My husband, who has huge pores and is constantly battling blackheads, has been using this 2-3 times per week and it has made a positive difference, especially on his T zone. As with all Ordinary products it delivers fantastic results for the price, but if you are happy to spend a lot more money there are other exfoliants which give more of a glassy glow to your skin.
  30. Amazing

    Kylie

    This product is phenomenal and the results are noticeable almost immediately...a high end result for a fraction of the price. Cannot recommend more highly.
  31. Affordable great product

    Maddie

    Was dealing with some not so clear skin and started using this over a week ago, has cleared up my skin and my face looks brighter in the mornings!
  32. Great value

    Fleur

    This product is excellent value, and works well to brighten my complexion
  33. Best product

    Queenie

    My older sister introduced this to me last year and ever since then I've been getting compliments on how smooth my skin is now. I use it every night before bed :) Will keep ordering more! 10/10
  34. Go-to product

    Bronwyn

    Especially given the price, this is great. I use it when my - ageing and winter-dry - skin feels congested, or when I want really clean skin before serum. It’s next to my toothbrush!
  35. Go the Glow!

    Karley

    Love this!! I use serveral times a week and it really does make skin glow. I get hormonal pimples around my chin and this helps clear them up quicker. Best to wait 30mins or so after washing face to apply as water can dilute the effect. Same goes for moisturizing after, wait 20-30mins.
    Yes it stings a tiny bit but i love the feeling that you know its working.
  36. Does not dry out my skin

    Larissa

    I use this product every night to tone and it does not dry out my already normal to slightly dry skin. My skin feels completely clean and ready for serums and moisturizers.
  37. helps with pigmentation

    bayden

    My pigmentation has drastically improved since using this
  38. Strong but effective

    Lizzy

    Not everyone may like this product as it tends to get stingy on application. Yet it is an effective exfoliant. This is my second bottle. I use it at night after cleansing, it takes away the dead skin and prepares my skin for hydration. Suitable if you do not have sensitive skin.
  39. Best toner ever

    Areeha

    I used this toner for 2 months and now m addicted to it, its jxt amazing, it does wonder to my skin
    My skin feels more confident than before
  40. Didn't love

    Lucy

    I used this product for a few weeks at night and found that the stinging was almost unbearable, even after putting my other products over the top. It seemed to really dehydrate my skin as well. Wouldn't recommend (at least not for everyday/night use).
  41. Another perfect toning solution!

    Esther

    Works best to lighten my dark pimple marks and doesn't make me feel dry. So cheap with a big bottle like this! Worth it!
  42. Overhyped

    Kerry

    I bought this after reading rave reviews on this product. After using this consistently for several months, I haven't noticed any change, it is not an effective glycolic acid. I have used others that have been far more effective than this. I love most products from The Ordinary but unfortunately not this one, as it didn't do anything for me.
  43. Stinging

    Sammie

    Ok so yes this products stings (well stings is wrongly used i think). I think its more like after your been skiing in bad conditions and you come back in and its when your face is warming back up. Its a little annoying but after applying all the other things it calms down.
  44. Silky but can Sting

    Jessica

    I use this toner after cleansing with the Squalane cleanser when I've had a gross work day, or occasionally in the morning after my cat has been snuggling in contact with my face. I have dry sensitive skin, so it can lightly sting on some areas but I don't notice any redness.

    My skin feels tight and silky smooth afterwards. I follow with Niacinamide, then HA, then moisturising factors. Only four stars because it can be difficult to apply evenly.
  45. Smoothing

    Tea Sommelier

    I'm trying to introduce acids to my routine, and having never believed in the power of toners, this Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution is the first of its kind that I have used in recent years. I wasn't sure what to expect and I didn't have high expectations but the texture of my skin has smoothed out drastically. It still burns my skin after months of use, I'm not sure if should ease up my usage, but given the impact, my sensitive skin better get used to it.
  46. Great addition to my beauty regime

    Jenna

    I have been using this in my beauty regime for about two weeks twice a week. It is a little bit tingly, but feels so nice! I am loving my regime of TO products!!
  47. Love!

    Renee

    My skin feels so soft and clean after using this. And my skin has improved significantly overall since using it too. So happy!
  48. Very affordable toner

    Nadine

    I’ve been using this product for 6 months. It made my a skin a bit itchy and irritated in the beginning but it doesn’t do that anymore. It’s a great price and will last a really long time. I find using it twice a week is enough for me. My skin feels nice the next morning after using this
  49. Easy to use!

    Hiro

    Well, I m becaming a big fan of TO. I have used several products on my dry skin. I tried this at night time and next morning, the skin looks different. Glowing! However, I found that if I use this with a TO’s vitamin C, it’s too aggressive on my skin. So I use this with Niacinamid 10% and I use vitamin C without using this. But I like the size and price, so I will definitely buy this again.
  50. Refreshing and effective

    Khim

    I use this toner only a couple of days a week as I have dry skin. I wasn't too sure this was doing much for me until my skin had an episode of irritation and was flaking due to it being really dried out during the winter days. Just a day later it had removed all of the flaking skin and it was no longer feeling irritated, tight or dry. I use a cotton pad and just dab it onto my face as I find it stings when I sweep it around on my skin.
  51. very happy with this toner and price

    Tara

    I use this toner for anti ageing. It sweeps dead skin away, evens complexion and brightens. I use it before vitamin a and have great results.
  52. Nightly routine must-have

    Kylie

    Love using this as part of my nightly routine. I use this every second night & find it creates a perfect base for my skin to soak up my serums. Absolute bargain too!
  53. New step in my routine

    Siobhan

    Where I would use witch hazel or cold water I now use this stuff! It acts as an astringent as well as a gentle exfoliator and I use it before applying night creams or serums. I use it every night and it has become part of my routine. Love it!
  54. Great!

    C

    Such a great quality and affordable toner!! Very effective and leaves skin feeling bright and fresh!
  55. Does a great job

    Follies

    I use this every alternating evening just to keep things under control. I just apply a bit to a cotton-pad and run it over my face, applying a tiny bit more pressure on my chin and nose. It definitely creates a nice fresh canvas for the next steps to soak in nicely (PM One: T.O Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, then T.O Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, T.O Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG and moisturiser)

    I have definitely noticed less blackheads and clearer brighter skin. Don't forget your SPF ;)
  56. Excellent exfoliator

    Huyen

    I have dry skin. I only use once a week and half way with my first bottle. Best thing no rinsing required. Feel fresh and clean every single time. Will boost twice a week as my skin is getting used to it. doesn’t cause any break out
  57. Good toning/slight peel

    Olly

    This product goes really well on the skin, doesn't burn or feel uncomfortable and leaves my skin ready for the serum that I put on afterwards. I use it with a cotton pad and swipe it over my skin avoiding my eyes.
  58. Excellent

    Larissa

    I have normal to dry skin & this product works beautifully without drying it out even more. No tightness or dry patches - very happy.
  59. Great!

    Wynona

    Great exchange from my usual rose water toner - this really brightens your complexions and slowly rebuilds the textural areas of your face. I have been using every night for the last 3 weeks and I have noticed a difference in the feel of my skin but not so much the pigmentation or acne just yet, however, it's a really easy product to use and sinks into your skin instantly. DO NOT USE OTHER ACIDS WITH THIS, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! I have very tough skin but instantly regretted using this with the salicylic acid as I turned red and my face stung all night.
  60. Subtle brightness achieved

    Amelia

    I have normal skin maybe slightly dry, and apply this probably 5-6 times a week once a day. I have nearly made it through the giant bottle and have already purchased a backup. I find it makes my skin look ‘better’ although I can’t pin point how, i have not noticed a dramatic improvement in pores or blackheads but I have quite clear skin with no texture issues (touch-wood!) to start with. It is probably one of the best toners I have used since it actually has active ingredients and I can see it working over time but I don’t feel like it’s a miracle worker, maybe the lactic acid serums would give a quicker result which I am yet to try
  61. great value

    Helena

    I bought this toning solution the other day as I am crazy about the ordinary skincare range at the moment. The size is very generous. I use only at night to wipe the skin with the cotton pad to remove the dead skin and residues. (My skin has been flaky and dry at the moment.) It gives you some slight sting sensation so if you have very sensitive skin, beware. It does clean and refresh my skin. I keep using this to see if I see more benefits.
  62. Effective for congested skin

    Harmonie

    I have oily, textured skin, prone to congestion. I added this to my nightly skincare routine and love it. Used in conjunction with various products on rotation (including alpha lipioic acid), my skin is much brighter and clearer. Highly recommended.
  63. Good Brightening & Non-Irritating Exfoliant

    Riley

    This product effectively helps brighten and even the tone of my skin. I experience no irritation when I use it (I use it about 3 times a week), except for in places where the skin is broken (which you're not supposed to apply it to anyway).

    Though glycolic acid is an AHA not typically used for acne (as I have), I find it does help treat and prevent recurring acne because AHAs help loosen and remove the clogs in pores. Additionally, I find this product really helps reduce the pigmentation left over from acne.

    I bought this to replace my Alpha-H Liquid Gold. Although I liked that product, I bought this instead because it is much cheaper and the Alpha-H product's second ingredient is denatured alcohol (a drying irritant).

    Definitely will continue to use in my routine and will repurchase in the future - would recommend.
  64. Ok but not much effective

    THI

    My friend recommended this to me. Been using for 1 month now but didn’t notice anything changes. Not hydrating enough for me as well.
  65. Ok but no effect

    Maggie

    After seeing so many glowing reviews I was expecting to see some texture/tone results from using this, but alas, it doesn't appear to be doing much. I use it twice weekly as I don't want to over-do the acids and after a couple of weeks, I just don't see any change. Maybe I need to wait longer, and I'll continue with it for another couple of weeks, but I also dislike the feel of it on my skin - it's somewhat sticky for me, and sits on my skin at night rather than settle, making it harder to layer. It tingles slightly. I suspect I might be more suited to Salicylic acid instead. At least with The Ordinary I can try things and not be hit too hard in my wallet if they don't work out!
  66. Cleansing but not much else.

    Elisa

    Good for removing residual make up after a face wash. Stings a little on application (and do not use Niacinamide straight after this toner, it stings).
  67. A must have for problem skin!

    Mel

    Ok wow! I’ve been using this toner for a while now and have decided to share my opinion so everyone can benefit too! I use this toner every night by putting a small amount on a cotton pad and wiping my face in circular motions with a small amount of pressure. It truly gets rid of all the dead skin cells that are remaining after cleansing. The toner really allows all your following products to be soaked up nicely! Since using it, my skin has cleared perfectly so highly recommend!
  68. Does the job

    Rosie

    With so many effective chemical exfoliants on the market; I can’t say this is a fave. Considering price point and size of the bottle this toner is extremely cost effective. I can feel that it’s working but it does feel a little harsh on my skin (mid thirties, normal).
  69. Leaves your skin SO SMOOTH

    Jasmine

    I absolutely love this toner. It leaves your skin so bright and smooth the following day and really helps with deepening the effect of your treatment serums afterwards! I use it around 2-3 times a week and me and my oily skin are obsessed. (Make sure to hydrate your skin afterwards and wear sunscreen)
  70. Better skin

    Sarah

    This product takes off the dead skin on my skin and gives it a glow. It has also helped decrease my acne size and I don't get pimples as often anymore. Really recommend it
  71. Great substitute for Liquid Gold

    Molly

    Love this cheaper effective alternative to the more pricey Alpha-H Liquid Gold.

    I use it to smooth skin by applying in the PM before serum and moisturiser/oils.

    Just remember to wear sunscreen lovelies!
  72. Good for skin condition and pores

    Melanie

    I have open pores and fine lines and used glycolic products for 7years. I apply this every 2nd evening and vise versa retinol as suggested. I love the way it makes my skin soft and glowy right away, and clearer by the morning, making my morning mattifier and makeup sit better. I would recommend for any novice or experienced glycolic users with similar concerns.
  73. Exfoliation

    Sarah

    I use this toner as a light exfoliator a few days a week and I am left with glowing skin and I do not get bumps on my skin ever since doing this
  74. Overall ok.

    Stace

    Very similar to Pixi Glow Tonic but a bit more potent. Can be a little harsh on sensitive skin. Overall a good product for an affordable price.
  75. Perfect addition to my routine

    Maddison

    I don't usually use a toner but bough this for the extra exfoliating factor with the GA. After cleansing it removes and makeup/dirt I had left behind. Love this product
  76. Amazing toner with extra cleansing

    Hannah

    This product is amazing! I’ve recommended it to all my friends. Even after exfoliating my face in the shower I can still see excess dirt or makeup on the cotton pad when I wipe my face with this!! This product helps give me an even, clear complexion after the first use! Easy to use, & lasts for ages. 10/10!
  77. Sticky but good price

    Annie

    I was expecting this to not leave a sticky residue but it does I used it then waited and washed it off with water... I didn’t like the residue it leaves and didn’t want to put a moisturizer on top let alone make up
  78. A simple, effective toner.

    Ellie

    I’ve been using this toner for a couple of weeks now and have noticed quite a difference. It is keeping dry winter skin at bay. I use it every evening before The Ordinary’s Marula Oil and wake up with glowing skin. This glycolic acid doesn’t really have a smell and the size of this bottle is so generous for the price! I love the little dispenser too. I will definitely buy this again.
  79. Got rid of my milia seeds in a few days, don't be scared of the word 'acid'.

    Alexandra

    I was so blown away by this product. It is gentle enough to use every night on my face, hands and feet. In a few days my milia seeds were gone and the dry skin between my fingers had disappeared! It's not overly drying too, I have dry combination skin and it works really well.
  80. fantastic

    C.

    i use this twice a week to tone my skin. it will sting the first time you use it, but it works really well to clear up my skin. i moisturise straight after.
  81. Cleaning, Toning Power

    Bianca

    I use this product after cleansing my skin and it gets rid of any extra make up or diet that my cleanser couldn’t eliminate.
    Skin is ready for a serum after this step!
  82. Didn’t suit my skin

    Emma

    I really wanted to love this but unfortunately it broke me out after a few days so I had to discontinue use
  83. Really good and CHEAP!

    Maggie

    This is a very good toner that helps me keep my acne at bay. Not exactly a dupe for the Alpha-H Liquid Gold, but really good for the price.
  84. Good for sensitive skin.

    Heath

    I am 48 years old with sensitive ageing skin. I have been using Alpha H liquid gold for years. I needed a product that wasn't as expensive but gave good results. This product ticked all the boxes. I do suggest if you haven't used a glycolic acid before start slowly and build up. This product is ideal for my sensitive, finicky skin.
    Highly recommended. Give it a go and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
  85. Still early days but looks promising!

    Elanna

    I've only had this product for a week however I've already begun to notice the progress of it reducing my cystic acne scars
  86. Can't beat the price

    Emily

    After reading rave reviews about the ordinary skincare brand I decided to order some products. This toner can absolutely not be beat for price or its effectiveness. The morning after my first use my skin was smooth soft and I could totally notice a little glow.
    It's also a great product to use to prep your skin for chemical peels to achieve an even finish.
    Will definitely be restocking this product.
  87. Helped with acne

    Madi

    I had acne, combination/ oily skin and so I got this product to help with the acne. Because I was also using salicylic acid, peels, exfoliators etc. I only used this product when I felt I needed it as it is a little drying on top of the rest of my routine but I would definitely recommend using it in the PM only for this reason as well as it causing some redness. I definitely think it assisted the rest of my routine in fixing my acne and but not too sure as to how much I can attribute my success to this product. I think my skin would still be the same now with or without this product but it did help when I needed it for an extra exfoliation and acne busting ingredients. A good addition to my product list.

    I love the ordinary. This makes my skin more even, smooth, toned, and soft! An amazing product for the price and lasted a fair while considering the size of the bottle!
  89. Does what it says

    LLV

    I purchased a bottle of this from here for the first time and I now can't live without it! Definitely makes a difference especially if you do not want to overexfoliate. Fantastic stuff. Buying again!
  90. Cleared up forehead acne

    Tahlia

    I've for 2 years had small bumps across my forehead and this toner with constant use has gotten rid of them completely so a holy grail for me!
  91. Great affordable toner

    Mf945

    I have normal skin, but a lot of toners feel too harsh, or have fragrances that I react to, this is not one of them. I have used this daily for almost six months and I'm only about halfway through my bottle. This product provides gentle, effective toning at a great price point, I highly recommend it.
  92. Too strong for me

    SS15

    I found that this formulation of glycolic acid was just slightly too strong for me, and it caused irritation after I initially used it and had significant redness that lasted for about an hour.
  93. Good product

    Kate

    I have oily skin with a few dry patches. I’ve just started using this product and so far really like it, always seems to find left over dirt on my face when I think it’s totally clean. My skin is left feeling tight and fresh, with a little tingle which I personally love. I probably wouldn’t recommend someone with very sensitive skin this product but for everyone else I recommend it.
  94. Can’t be without it

    Leisa

    I love this product and literally go into panic mode when I’m about to run out. I really recommend it. When you use it in your skincare routine it leaves your skin feeling really clean.
  95. ye yeeee

    chemical exfoliants are amazing as they dont damage the skin or cause microdermabrasions. This removes all the dead skin so well. just make sure you use it at night as if you wear it in the sun it will cause damage
  96. Good for acne prone skin

    Jia

    I have combination and acne prone skin. This product really helps to clear my skin. My skin feels more smooth and clear than before. Love it.
  97. Great

    Yo

    Enhanced my skin
    Since using this every other night before applying moisturiser my skind has become more glowy and plump. Now it also has way less dry flaky patches which my foundation would cling on to. Before this i could never exfoliate enough and now my skin seems to renew itself
  98. 50/50

    I didn't love this product but I also didn't hate it.
    I have been an AVID fan of Alpha-H's Liquid Gold (another glycolic solution) but I thought I would try this product from The Ordinary as I read it was a pretty good dupe and it is about $40 cheaper...
    I use many of The Ordinary's products so I had high hopes for this.

    But unfortunately, over time I realised I didn't love this one because I hardly seem to reach for it. Some mornings when I wake up after using it, I have funny red bumps under the skin.
    If you are just looking for a chemical exfoliant to use occasionally when needed (i.e. don't need it for regular, good results) then this is probably not a bad option because it is cheap and would do that job.
    But if you are looking for a skin transformation or a reliable product to use consistently...spend the money and go for Alpha-H Liquid Gold. It's much more versatile and effective.
  99. Love it

    Caity

    So good each morning and really helps keep my skin clear
  100. So much product, such great value

    Mel

    I love this toner. Love it, Love it, Love it.

    So much product, this will probably last me a good 9 months with nightly use. It doesn't dry me out, doesn't strip me right back to my bones, it just leaves the best base for my retinol and oil.

    I have oily, 35yo skin and its effective enough to do its job, but gentle enough not to give my skin the pull back feel.

    I started every second night, but am now up to every night. Will repurchase when the keg eventually runs out!
