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.

Most Helpful Positive

Gets Results
I still can't believe how cheap these products are, and how effective they are - I love trying new products from The Ordinary and this one is definitely worth a go - leaves skin feeling fresh and exfoliated. Would highly recommend.

Most Helpful Criticism

Cheap but not sure if it's working
Similar as many other The Ordinary products, the price is decently priced for the amount of product you'll get. Apart from stinging my face a little bit when using, I am not sure if it's working, Ended up giving 3/4 of the bottle away.
  1. Gets Results

    I still can't believe how cheap these products are, and how effective they are - I love trying new products from The Ordinary and this one is definitely worth a go - leaves skin feeling fresh and exfoliated. Would highly recommend.
  2. Very affordable

    I'm really happy I brought this because of how affordable this is and it's a big size that will last a long time.It doesn't make my skin too red and gives it a glow.Because it's so big I use it on most of my body helps soften skin.
  3. Not at all harsh

    Based on a glycolic exfoliator I have, I was expecting a leave-on serum to be really rough. But it was actually fine, I didn't have any kind of reaction at all. And my face the next day felt really nice, very fresh. I would absolutely recommend it. And have you seen the price? It's ridiculously cheap compared to every other glycolic acid I've seen!

  5. Price is right but nothing special

    Switched from Pixi glow toner to this due to price but I have since switched back, I did feel it was a touch harsher but performs well for the price. I prefer more luxe products for my face, but I have started using this on shoulder and back areas where I break out and on my heels to deal with dry and hardening skin and it's quite effective.
  6. a good product

    I'm using this and I like it. I can't see a miracle but it's a good product.
  7. Great for gentle exfoliation

    I've been using this for 2 months everyday and my skin is so much smoother. I can use it twice a day but it might be too strong for some.

    It does exfoliate as there are times my skin would peek ever so slightly particularly around my nose, but that just means it's working.

    It's quite mild but stings a tiny bit on pimples, but I just assume it's drying it out and cleaning the area before I continue with my regimen.

    2 months and not even a quarter used up. Lasts long and definitely worth the price.
  8. My skin looks fab!

    I tried this because I wanted to try the Pixi toner but this was cheaper, and I’m not disappointed. This isn’t too harsh on my skin, but seems to make my skin look a bit more fresh
  9. Not sure about this

    I have wanted to try this brand for a long time. I don't know if it's just not right for me, but this product often stings my face like putting salt on my legs after shaving. I don't have particularly sensitive skin. However because of the price etc I don't think I can complain too much.
  10. Essential part of your routine!

    Every night without fail I have been using this for the past months and I must say it feels incredible right after a face wash. I feel like it helps with skin renewal. I used to try the Pixi Glow Tonic but found this much more affordable and with better ingredients in my opinion.
  11. made me pour my other toners in the sink!

    after trying this for a couple of nights, I got rid of my other toners! My skin just love this brand and always deliver quick results. My skn is used to AHAs like lactic acid toners, and it's my first time to try glycolic acid. I use this nightly and does not sting nor dry my skin, it actually feels hydrating. Skin texture is getting smoother and it gives me that glow! It's on my holy grail list now especially with the price, I can bathe in this! :-)
  12. Fantastic price, works well

    This is an amazing toner - and works well at exfoliating. At this price I am happy to use on rough skin on backs of arms etc too. Be careful though, I have definitely noticed my skin has been more sun sensitive since using. Best to apply at night and use good quality sunscreen during the day.
  13. In Love!

    First time using Glycolic Acid and I’m in love! Woke up with visibly smaller pores. Now my skin is purging a little bit and it tingles when applied but I’ve read that it’s normal. I will continue using it and hope to see even better results when my skin adapts more to it.
  14. amazing toner

    Takes a little patience at first (which is always hard!), but I've have never tried AHAs before, so didn't want to burn my face off in the first week of using it. Once I've build up the tolerance, this toner has been really good to my skin. I'm The Ordinary convert. This gets used in both my AM and PM. It has also helped me to build up tolerance for AHA 30% + BHA 2% peeling solution. I use that once a week. I've built my routine to target first signs of aging for oily combination skin and it works for me. Best skin game in years.
  15. Gentle and effective

    This toner feels very light and gentle on the skin, but it still does a great job at toning the skin at the same time. It's at a great price point, especially since you get quite a lot of product as well.
  16. Fixed My Bump Skin

    I have combination aging skin. I use this as my final swipe to remove make up after cleansing. My skin was looking very bumpy and since using this it is looking so smooth!! For the price this is actually a great product.
  17. Good toner

    I use this at night which is all I feel my skin needs. It is a nice toner that doesn’t dry my skin too much but keeps my skin from getting too oily. I am happy with this product.
  18. Affordable

    I'm happy with this product, I used PIXI glow toner before and moved on to this one for its affordability. I have combination skin and this works fine for me, it helps with my cracked dry lips too.
  19. Would buy again

    I don’t use toner much but it does the job, it can sting a bit if you have a cut on your face but overall nice product for the price!
  20. Good price good product

    One of the best toners. Doesn’t break me out and so gentle in my skin. Doesn’t dry my skin. Will definitely buy again and continue using it.
  21. Great value for money!

    I love all 'The ordinary' products. I really like this toner, I just felt it didn't really do anything for my face. I do however get annoying Keratosis Pilaris on my arms, and I really think that the Glycolic acid applied daily to my arms has made a big difference. I know that it's probably not what this toner was meant for, but the large bottle and the price make it worth using long-term. I think it was just a bit 'meh' on my face, I didn't notice a whole lot of improvement in comparison to other facial toners I have used in the past. X
  22. Has helped control cystic acne

    I was recommended this by adore beauty support, I’m 33 and suffer from extremely painful hormonal cystic acne. It’s only been 3 weeks and the inflammation has reduced, and the pain is nowhere near as bad. After feeling like I’d always have skin like a teenager I’m so happy I found this product, there’s been a huge improvement.
  23. Very effective product

    I have never been a great fan of toners but have had great results using the glycolic acid and Hyaluronic Acid toners from The Ordinary. I have mature skin and initially had some concerns that this product might be too harsh. Not the case- helps to keep my skin smooth and clear looking.
  24. Great for stubborn texture on my nose!

    I have struggled with stubborn texture on both my nose and chin for a long time. As I've gotten older it has become less inflamed and red, but under makeup becomes very obvious, particularly with any glowy products over the top. This solution has completely removed this and my skin is the smoothest it has been in years! I am more confident both not wearing makeup, and when I wear makeup!
  25. Fantastic and a great price

    This product is another great no-frills product from the ordinary. I have dry, sensitive skin prone to eczema, and after using some lactic acid and retinoid from the ordinary I was able to build myself up to this toner! I would only use it maximum of twice a week, with other hydrating products. But it is a fantastic exfoliant, huge size, great packaging - what's not to love? There are other toners that contain some more hydrating ingredients in them, but you pay a premium. This gets 4 stars as it does require extra hydration afterwards, but it's a great staple to put in your exfoliation routine on a budget.
  26. Glowing!

    My skin is clear, glowy and plump! It takes a bit of getting use to but for that price so worth it.
  27. Bit harsh

    This product isnt for anyone who has sensitive skin , my face stings for a while after. I only use it once or twice a week.
  28. Great value for money

    I'm new to this product, only used it for approximately one month but so far I love it and will continue to keep as part of my regular daily routine. The exfoliant toner has been gentle enough on my skin and feels hydrating. Overall I believe it to be assisting with reducing my pores and refining my skin. A thumbs up for me.
  29. Great toner

    Love the packaging it arrived in, looks way more expensive than it is and has a lot in it. When I used it for the first time, it took off a lot of makeup and didn't feel harsh. My other favourite toner is Aesop brand, which is a lot more expensive and smells nice but this one compares well as a toner I can use as well in between. This is my first The Ordinary skincare product and I'm keen to try others.
  30. Excellent!

    This product is so great for the price! Not as good as Alpha H Liquid Gold in my opinion which I also use. But considering the price difference, this product is a no-brainer. Lightly exfoliating and can use everyday.
  31. Ordinary Toning Solution

    AMAZING! it takes off all the little fibers and bits of dirt that my face cleanse doesn't get too. Its amazing what still remains on the surface of our skin. I would highly recommend, and definitely price attractive
  32. MUST HAVE

    I have been suffering from acne since I turned 18 (I’m now 30), I have tried everything! From pro-active - taking orals meds - going to derma every month! I did however managed to use one specific product that has a Glycolic Acid but its a bit expensive that cleared my skin. Hence, I research other brands that have it ... and the Ordinary’s Glycolic works
  33. Oh Yeah, It's Good

    So much product for the price! I love it! Makes my skin very glowy and healthy looking. It also has evened out my skin texture and my skin is so smooth now. It's so very good. Just don't overuse it!
  34. love the packaging

    my favourite thing about this toner is the price & size
    I love the packaging.
    As for the actual toner itself, it's good. Theres nothing amazing about it, but for the price its a good product.
  35. Amazing value for money

    This is an excellent exfoliating toner! The product was unexpectedly moisturising too!

    I use this at night before my TO moisturiser and it helps even out my oiliness and general skin tone. Super refreshing and helps take off any leftover makeup that hasn't been removed when I cleansed my face.
  36. Great and affordable!

    This product works great on my skin, I apply it morning and night before bed and it helps keep my skin clear.
    Tingles as you h apply it at first but you get used to it eventually
  37. Love it!

    My skin has been needing some TLC and after researching The Ordinary products this was a must have! After a week I can already see a difference and love how this product helps my skin feel and look. Clear, smooth and glowy. Love, love love!
  38. Perfect chemical exfoliant and great price

    I've been using this solution once a week for about 6 weeks now and I love it. I'm fairly new to chemical exfoliation and had tried AHA Gold which was also good but has a lot of alcohol so it was a bit harsh. The Ordinary is mild enough to use liberally and leave on all night, I use it every Sunday in the evening. I like the bottle with it's 'sauce bottle' like cap and you get plenty of product for your dollar. Will definitely purchase again.
  39. Not suited to my skin type

    I have combination skin, prone to the occasional breakout, and I don’t know if it was a coincidence, but a few pimples popped up within a couple of days of starting to use it, so I discontinued.
  40. Improved the texture of my skin!

    Glycolic acid has been such a game changer for my skin. I have oily/combination skin prone to congestion (white and blackheads, pimples) and using glycolic acid consistently has changed the texture for the better and is so much more smoother than before. I am breaking out less and have found less of a need to use physical exfoliants. This product is gentle enough for me to use twice daily, and I can't recommend this enough!
  41. Immediate Results

    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.
  42. It's my once per week exfoliant

    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.
  43. Skin Adjusted to the Toner

    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.
  44. Great toner

    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.
  45. Great for a deep clean!

    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.
  46. I love this!

    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!
  47. Best for hormonal acne

    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
  48. Good ingredients

    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.
  49. Effectively removes dull, dead skin

    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.
  50. needed time to build up to it

    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.
  51. Great product

    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.
  52. Must have in your regime

    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!
  53. Miracle for acne and blemishes

    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!
  54. Perfect for unwanted texture

    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.
  55. God damn this stuff is good

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

    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!
  57. There is a reason this product is often sold out!

    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!
  58. Much Faster & Better Results than Expected

    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!
  59. GLOWING!

    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!
  60. You think you don't need this but you do.

    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.
  61. Excellent

    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
  62. Love The Ordinary

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

    Liked this product i have sensitive skin and it didnt make me break out.
  64. Favourite product from this brand!

    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.
  65. Worth a try!

    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!
  66. Comparable to Liquid Gold!

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

    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
  68. Quick results to remove dark skin pigments

    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).
  69. Best product!

    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.
  70. Fantastic, Low Cost, Toning Solution (for the whole body!)

    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.
  71. Perfect!

    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
  72. #1 toner

    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
  73. A good tingly feeling

    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.
  74. Tingly goodness

    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.
  75. The only ORDINARY product I would buy!

    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.
  76. Really good but not for sensitive skin!

    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.
  77. Dark spots

    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.
  78. This stuff cleans your face

    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.
  79. Results after a few days of use

    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.
  80. Great toner, great price

    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.
  81. Perfect!

    Perfect toner, very light and doesn’t leave any residue. Great to prepare skin for other products.
  82. THE ORDINARY GLYCOLIC ACID 7% TONING SOLUTION

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

    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.
  84. Unbelievable value

    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!
  85. Love from day one

    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!
  86. Magical

    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!
  87. Amazing

    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.
  88. My skin feels and looks so supple and clear!

    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!!
  89. Another great product by The Ordinary

    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.
  90. A miss for me

    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!
  91. Great for the price

    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.
  92. Nice toner

    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.
  93. My skin is glowing

    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!
  94. Same as Pixi glow tonic

    Exfoliates the skin to leave it looking brighter and clearer
  95. Textural and tonal issues gone!

    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.
  96. Good for face and body

    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.
  97. Love it

    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.
  98. The best toner I've ever used

    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.
  99. Smooth and clear

    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.
  100. Amazing

    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.
