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.

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.

Good AHA toner - 16-08-2018 by

I have been using this on my arms, I have KP and it seems to be really working to get then redness to disappear. I would recommend this product especially with the price tag.

Amazing for the price - 13-08-2018 by

This product is so worth the purchase. It’s not harsh and helps to remove impurities and keeps your skin smooth and refreshed. It’s an amazing product for the price and will last you ages!

Take it easy.. - 13-08-2018 by

Definately awesome. Great value, huge bottle.. will last long time.
Very strong, so go easy.

I have sensitive pale, rosacea prone skin. I use this maybe once a week as I have a bad habit of over exfoliating and reaching for the cortisone. Another option is to isolate and only use on you T-zone when you use it- which I frequently do. Smoothes out the skin texture on my forehead and chin nicely without burning my cheeks etc.

If your skin isn't as mine is you could definately using more often. I also use Pixi Glow tonic which is 4%.. I can use Pixi in the am. But at 7%.. this bad boy is night time use only.

Amazing product for cheap - 13-08-2018 by

This is a great alternative to the Pixi Glow Tonic, it's cheaper and it has a higher percentage of glycolic acid without being harsh on the skin! It's amazing.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! - 09-08-2018 by

I've seen a significant improvement in the dry patches on my face as well as overall skin texture! I have sensitive skin, and find that this product does not irritate my skin at all. Will repurchase over and over again!

Love it - 02-08-2018 by

This is the best toner I've used so far. I love the simplicity of it! It works great removing those last traces of makeup after cleansing and leaves my skin feeling fresh but not stripped.

Toner Saver - 30-07-2018 by

I use to think alpha h liquid gold was the best thing on earth skincare wise but now this is my favourite. A must have always. The price is the best thing to because it actually works with the skin.

Great toner - 27-07-2018 by

I have sensitive acne prone skin and this toner works so great for me. It does not feel drying like other toners usually feel and I have noticed a difference in my skins texture is smoother and tone more even. Great value for money. I would definitely recommend it!

No more clogged up skin or blackheads - 27-07-2018 by

After 2 weeks I not longer had clogged big pores on my nose and my skin was a lot clearer!

good - 26-07-2018 by

helped me with pigmentation

New Fave! - 24-07-2018 by

I have been using the Alpha Liquid Gold for ages - I tried this and I like it better! It is a bit gentler but gives the same amazing results! I am a huge fan of The Ordinary brand.

good - 24-07-2018 by

a toner recommend for first-time-acid user. a very gentle acid product for oily and acne skin.

Just as good as liquid gold. - 17-07-2018 by

I’ve been using alpha h liquid gold and wanted to try this because it was a lot cheaper. Honestly have had the same results with this. I use it every other night and it helps with redness, cystic acne and the overall texture of my skin.

Amazing product! - 12-07-2018 by

Gentle but effective toner, great for everyday use. My skin has benefited greatly and has never been cleaner! Such a good price for the size bottle also! A+++++

Perfect Toner - 11-07-2018 by

I love this toner. It is gentle enough to use daily and I find my skin has never been cleaner using this!

Such an effective toner - 10-07-2018 by

I have combination and sensitive skin and this toner works so well for me. It is really good and balancing my skin's ph without drying my skin at all. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin after using this-its brighter with fewer spots and dark pigmentation. It is also such good value for money as it lasts quite a long time. I would definitely recommend this toner!

great product - 09-07-2018 by

easy to use- I dont get any stinging sensation at all
I use it only a few times a week don't over use of I get red rash

Replaced My Pixi Glow Tonic - 08-07-2018 by

This product is great to swipe on at the beginning of my PM skincare routine. I have noticed my scars fading and an overall improvement to skin texture after I started using this product.

Great product! - 06-07-2018 by

This is a really good and affordable option for a toner - I found that including this in my skincare routine helped my skin to appear more smooth and healthy. I use this every second or third night to avoid overusing it, otherwise I feel like it would be too harsh

I religiously use this product now!! - 04-07-2018 by

I love this toner so much, I never used toner before this and didnt fully understand it but after using this product it helped my skin stay nice, fresh and clean and I use it every night before bed and helps get all the invisible stuff you cant see that builds up on your skin during the day off.

Broke me out, but is slowly helping my keratosis pillaris - 02-07-2018 by

Bought this to try and acid tone/niacinamide my pore problem away. After niacinamide was firmly entrenched in my routine, I started using this to acid tone every second night (My skin is used to strong solutions/acids) but it broke me out consistently each time I used it, even after dropping back to weekly application. It has seemed to work on the keratosis pillars on my upper arms and thighs, though, so that's a plus. It's very, very trying, however, but that's per for the course.

Unbelievable price, amazing results - 02-07-2018 by

I bought this as I wanted to try something I could use everyday rather than just 2-3 times a week like my Alpha-H Liquid Gold. I've been using it every night in the PM and then layering with a number of other The Ordinary products. I haven't been able to isolate it to just this toner to find out exactly what's made my skin look the best it ever has ... but this toner has got to be helping!!!!!!!!!!! It takes off the last of any makeup residue after cleansing. It gives your skin a slight tingle but also makes it feel tight and refreshed. I must have chucked out the nozzle attachment when I opened the packaging so just make sure you have it - you can take off the screw-top lid and swap it out with the nozzle for easier application.

Ok toner but nothing special for me - 28-06-2018 by

I have combination/oily skin and was really looking forward to using this product based on the excellent reviews and promising description. I found this didn't really do much at all to improve my skin, unfortunately. For the price though, I found it to be good value and still a good quality product and toner that I may consider using again in the future, I just didn't find it all that impressive or a noticeable difference in my skin.

Baby soft skin! - 27-06-2018 by

My skin is so soft and lovely after using this product! It's goes on well and dries quickly. I use it every night to prepare my skin for a derma roll and then a range of The Ordinary products. Very happy with the product! Works especially well with The Ordinary Vitamin C products.

Clears congestion and smooths skin - 27-06-2018 by

I use this toner at night after cleansing. I found that the first few uses caused mild stinging especially if I had blemishes however this stopped after a week of use. This toner has helped to clear my clogged pores and has dramatically smoothed my skin. I have been using this everyday for over a month and not even 1/4 of the bottle is gone. For the price point and effectiveness of this product it would be pointless to buy anything else!

Good for acne - 27-06-2018 by

I have very sensitive and dry skin and this product has very high level of glycol acid which isn't an ingredient that compliments sensitive skin. However, it works wonders at clearing texture and fresh pimples as long as I use it sparingly every other day or so. My only reason for giving if 4 stars instead of five is that it stings every time I use it but it is only momentary and hasn't caused any irritation or redness afterwards. If you're looking for something for smoothers clearer skin, i would highly recommend!

Glowing skin! - 27-06-2018 by

I love this toner! I use it nightly and my skin is always so soft and glowy by the morning. I bought it as I heard it was a dupe to the Pixi Glow Tonic. This is so affordable and gives amazing results! Definitely recommend!

Best toner for night routine - 26-06-2018 by

I use this toner after cleaning my skin at night, my skin feels clean, glowing .
I am obsess with this product.

Soft skin after only a few uses! - 25-06-2018 by

I bought this toner after having an adverse reaction to a serum that left me with bumpy, irritated skin. After a few days my skin calmed down, but I was left with a dull and dry complexion which this product completely transformed in a short amount of time. It provided gentle exfoliation leaving me with super soft, supple skin. I do have some post acne marks that I’m keen to see fade, hopefully the glycolic acid will tackle this issue in some time. Overall very pleased with this formula!

OBSESSED - 25-06-2018 by

This is without a doubt the best acid toner I have every used, at a bargain price for a decent-sized bottle. I only use once per day (as directed) and it makes a huge difference in my skin's clarity and texture.

Amazing value - 25-06-2018 by

Amazing value for the price! It's very light and leaves my skin feeling soft and glowy. It smoothes out my dry and flakey skin.

Pleasantly Surprised - 22-06-2018 by

I am a huge fan of acid toning, and a huge fan of glycolic acid. I tried this to see if I would like it in my regular rotation, despite hearing mixed reviews of The Ordinary products. I actually really enjoyed this acid toner. Similar to Nip + Fab Extreme Acid pads, the glycolic is high enough that your face will look visibly brighter the next day, but gentle enough that it won't irritate your skin on application. I have dry/sensitive skin, and this acid toner was no issue at all - and you get so much in a bottle! I will definitely repurchase and keep it as a glycolic go-to. (If you have suuuuuper sensitive skin, maybe steer clear of glycolic, and choose something with lactic acid instead).

All in all a good product - 22-06-2018 by

I dont religiously use this product, but it is my go to when I want an acid base exfoliator. This product doesn't leave a sticky residue on my face like other Glycolic acid products I have used. I use this in conjunction with other 'the ordinary' products and my skin has never been so clear. The bottle is one of the larger 'the ordinary' products so it makes it a bit cumbersome to travel with but all in all a good product.

Incredible toner! - 21-06-2018 by

This bottle is such an amazing value for the price! I've had the toner for almost 6 months now and even with using it 3 times a week its not even halfway finished!! It's a good exfoliating toner and helps brighten my skin and has reduced the amount of bumps on my face! It can also be used on arms and legs to help fade discolouration

EXCELLENT - 19-06-2018 by

I am not one to use a toner because they all have left my skin with a weird residue or I just think they have never done anything to benifit my skin in anyway and I for a while have had problems skin with breakouts and redness.
This product within the week o have had it has restored my skin back to what it use to be. It feels really light on the skin and it only can be applied in the PM so its perfect because you won't notice any residue.
Highly recommend this product to anyone who is wanting a new toner, plus its at an outstanding price!

Love it - 17-06-2018 by

I love this toner. My skin feels so clean after using it and I have noticed a big difference in my skin tone. My breakouts are alson being kept in check. Love the size of this product too. Such good value.

I don't know - 14-06-2018 by

For some reason, this emphasised my pores and left too much of a sticky residue. I think this might have caused some clogged pores too. I'm really sad because this has such a great price and all the reviews I read were wonderful. Then again, none of The Ordinary products have worked for me.

Very effective acid toner - 13-06-2018 by

Amazing acid toner, works well, isn't expensive. My skin feels soft, smooth and glowing the next day. I use this two-3 times a week at night. Comparable to Pixi glow tonic but with a bit more oomph, and you get so much!

Feels so good - 11-06-2018 by

I use this of an evening after cleansing and before serums and moisturising, my skin feels so clean, fresh and smooth, ready for whatever goes on afterwards. The smallest bit goes a long way too making it very economical.

Insanely good value. - 11-06-2018 by

I have dry skin, it helps with redness and texture. Also, it's ridiculously cheap for the volume you get, I think it'd take me 5 years to use it all. I alternate it with a salicylic acid 2% product, and a retinol (not retinoid), though you can use it every day, preferably at night.

Glowing - 01-06-2018 by

I use this every few days by squirting it onto a cotton pad and wiping it all over my face and decolletege. No HUGE life changing differences in the morning, but it has taken away redness from spots that have appeared the day before and generally makes my skin look happy and fresh. That's enough to win me over.

Love it! - 31-05-2018 by

I Love this product. I use it straight after cleansing my face and before my serums and moisturiser. Its super cleansing and gives my skin a nice little tingle. I use only once a day at night time (as reccommended). In just a week I can see and feel a difference in my skin tone.

Brightens and smooths skin - 30-05-2018 by

I have really oily skin that is congested and slightly textured. Upon reading on glycolic acid, I decided to buy this particular toner and have been using it for approximately 2 weeks. I never understood what it meant when a product brightens your skin until this toner. It has definitely brightened and smoothed my skin and has helped with my clogged pores. Although it has not helped with the oiliness of my skin, I would definitely recommend this product for anyone with congested skin and those wanting to know what brightened skin is like.

Great product! - 28-05-2018 by

I had heard so much about the toning solution and had to wait for it to come back in stock. It was worth the wait. My skin is revived and fresh looking. My pores are really clean and less noticeable. I am using it of a night time. At first there was a tingling sensation, but now that my skin is used to it, it has settled down.

Could be strong for others - 22-05-2018 by

I think that this is a bit stronger for a glycolic acid. I find that my skin gets sensitive to other products when I use this. There's tiny bit stinging. So what I do is, I use this only once a week and only apply a moisturiser after that, no other serums. All in all, I love what it does to my skin.

I won't re-purchase... - 18-05-2018 by

This toner isn't terrible, but it isn't brilliant either. Yes it's pretty and it's pink, in uber cool bathroom-worthy packaging. All this at an unbeatable price. It really sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? And it is...

I've used various Glycolic Acid products over the past 20 years to treat and clear hormonal acne and this is not my favourite. My main complaint about this toner is the rather nasty sticky residue it leaves all over my face. I feel like I need to use another toner to remove the residue left by the first!

I purchased 2 bottles and I will use them until I run out, but probably not on my face!

Best toner of all time! - 17-05-2018 by

This is without a doubt the best acid toner I have every used, at a bargain price for a decent-sized bottle. I only use once per day (as directed) and it makes a huge difference in my skin's clarity and texture. It also means that I've stopped using abrasive exfoliants, which I've relied on way too much in the past. It's alcohol-free and doesn't have a strong scent or any artificial fragrance! Highly recommended.

Good - 16-05-2018 by

I have recently introduced this into my current Ordinary routine, so far it is working well. I apply this at night after cleansing and I do feel that it is cleaning my skin even further and tightening my pores. I will continue to use this and likely repurchase.

Such a staple - 14-05-2018 by

Clears up dry and flakey skin. My pores are so clean.

So happy I finally caved and brought this! - 12-05-2018 by

It smells like flowers, so calming and soothing on my face. Tingles around the bigger pores but all good toners do for me. I looked in the mirror 20 mins applying this and my skin was so bright and looked more even. So happy with this item.

worth the wait - 08-05-2018 by

finally tracked this stuff down after searching everywhere for it! been using it for a few weeks and my pores have definitely become less apparent. great toner that removes the gunk you can't see even after cleansing!

Clears flaky skin - 08-05-2018 by

I use this in the morning before starting my serum and moisturizing routine. I have some flakiness and texture from congested pores, and a swipe of this cleans the slate and preps my face for smooth makeup application. stings a little if I have any broken skin but that settles quickly. I will buy again. I never used to see the point of toners but this is worthwhile using.
