Bit disappointed


I expected more from this product and was a bit disappointed when I found it so so. Not sure how often people use this but I wasn't wow'd
  1. worth the time and money

  2. It does what an AHA is supposed to do!


    This does exactly what an AHA is supposed to do - it exfoliates your skin. Don't expect the results that a Sunday Riley Good Genes will give you, because it simply does not have as a sophisticated formulation to work on multiple issues at once. This will give you subtle brightening and a good boost for your other products, but I would so don't expect more than that :)
  3. Excellent budget lactic acid!


    I used to buy Sunday Riley Good Genes but stopped when I tried this product. I notice an instant difference in my skin when used and it has helped cleared scarring and hyperpigmentation.
  4. No fuss exfoliator at a great price


    I have been using this for a weeks now and have noticed that my skin is clearer the next day and that complexion lasts for a few days. I have used Paula's Choice BHAs before but found that this product took some time for my skin to get used to. There was initial stinging the first couple of times but now can be tolerated. I use this twice a week at night.
  5. Amazing


    I've been using this for a few weeks and have noticed my skin feels so smooth and texture has improved. Love it
  6. Amazing

  7. Excellent


    This is an excellent peel! I use it once a week and my skin looks super glowy the next day and it also keeps my skin nice and clear free from breakouts
  8. Fantastic!!


    I have started using this in conjunction with retinol on alternating evenings and am absolutely loving the way my skin feels each morning! Really smoothes and refines my skin without needing rough exfoliating scrubs!
  9. Yes!!!


    I started using the 5%, used the whole bottle happily and have now started on the 10%. I love this product on my mature skin, it makes it feel dewy and youthful! I will continue to buy this product as my dry, mid 30s skin lovvvves it!
  10. Good


    I love chemical exfoliants and never use physical scrubs. This is a great exfoliant that does not irritate my skin. My skin is always left smooth and glowy after using this.
  11. Bit disappointed


    I expected more from this product and was a bit disappointed when I found it so so. Not sure how often people use this but I wasn't wow'd
  12. Smooth skin


    I have just started using this product instead of liquid gold. I find this gentler on my skin and only use it once a week but it smooth my skin and makes it look more radiant and healthy. I only use it once a week because I have too many other skincare products I use at nighttime so can only fit this in once a week haha.
  13. Already recommended to friend


    Easy to apply and need only a few drops. Loving your products.
  14. Really really good!


    Lactic acid gets along with my skin very well. Helps with acne a lot and a great way to exfoliate. This one is fantastic but I wouldn’t use it everyday.
  15. Worth it


    I like to use this when I dont feel like giving myself a 40% peel mask at home. Something to keep my skin fresh and young looking in between peels.
  16. Great exfoliation


    I have seen a great improvement in the appearance of my skin using this. I use it 3 times a week, it has a slight tingling sensation but very gentle. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and fresh
  17. Great exfoliator


    I love this product for producing super smooth, soft skin! A little peeling at first, but my skin didn’t get too irritated at all. Definitely gives me a great glow and awesome feeling skin!
  18. Texture


    Great chemical exfoliant. This 10% formula is quite strong so would recommend building from a lower %. Good for reducing texture
  19. Gentle Yet Effective


    I only use this every other week in the pm. So I’ll use this straight for 7 days then switch to a vitamin c product for another 7 days, then repeat. I really feel that it does exactly what it says, keeps my skin clear and isn’t harsh on my skin. A really effective mild exfoliant.
  20. Effective but a little too intense for everyday use for me


    Makes my skin super smooth and is very effective at exfoliating, but I find it a little too intense to use everyday, I much prefer the glycolic acid toner for everyday use.
  21. Visible results!


    I use once a week at night, when I wake up in the morning my skin looks glowy, smooth, clear, brighter and more refined. It’s a lovely product at such an awesome price. Give it a go!
  22. Pretty good


    This feels nice on the skin, but would need to use everyday in order to see results. Im more of mix up my routine each day to spread out my products so i havent seen anything crazy. i will say the texture of my skin has improved since using this product, noticeably overnight as well.
  23. leaves my skin smooth and glowing


    this stuff is liquid gold, it appears to have helped with some discoloration and my skin is always very soft after using it.
  24. Gentle but effective exfoliation


    Smooths texture, shrinks the appearance of pores and adds a gentle glow without ever irritating or drying my sensitive, eczematic skin. I'll be sticking with this for a long time.
  25. Perfect for once a week


    I wouldn't use this more than once a week as it does make your skin quite dry the day after. It's a good addition to my skincare routine.
  26. Skin is baby soft the next day


    I use this at night before vitamin C and B serums twice a week.

    I use 3 drops and put over my whole face. My skin feels smooth and soft the next day. It removes dry patches of skin but I have to follow with more oily moisturisers to counterbalance and keep my skin hydrated.

    I have extremely dry and sensitive skin and have not had any adverse reactions.
  27. Amazing!


    I really love exfoliants but this is a game changer! No more scrubbing your skin, and it always leaves my skin soft and radiant in the morning! I put it on first before any other serums. I've bought this time and time again . Will buy again.
  28. Quick Results


    I have oily skin and acne scarring, within the two weeks of using this I have seen huge results. My sister has recently purchased this product after seeing first hand the change in texture, greasiness and overall health of my skin. This has already become a staple to my skincare routine.
  29. Works a treat!


    Great for getting rid of dry patches, you don’t notice any flaking it just gets better day by day. The 10% can cause a small amount of tingling so if you have sensitive skin I’d recommend going with the 5%. I’ve been told this can have a drying effect and to take a break from it every few months and to use hydrating serums or moisturisers while using it. I’ve been using this for over a year and I couldn’t live without it.
  30. Great


    This is an awesome product, REMOVES the dead cells, and reduces lines and wrinkles OVERNIGHT!!
  31. Good acid


    I have dry skin on my cheeks and forehead, oily on my nose and blackhead on my chin and jawline.
    I use this after dermologica thermofoliant once or twice a week (depending on how often I remember/am home). I use it at night and leave it on all night ans just splash my face with water the next day before my daily moisturiser. I don't find it drying or irritating and my skin feels smoother the next day.
    I find this to be useful in fading the residual red marks after pimples quicker (where you skin takes agggges to heal) and I notice after use the blackheads/millia tend to develope a good black top (as they're now exposed to air) which mean I can get a few out.
    I don't think its does much preventative-wise for blackheads but my skincare regime is a bit inconsistent due to travel. Plus I've never use a facial acid previously so I can't help with comparing it to any others.
  32. Changes skin texture more than colour/tone


    I built up to using using this daily and it definitely changed my skin texture, though hasn't tackled my redness that much. I know I have other stronger options but I have a strong tendency of inflammation with new products so wanted to start milder. Would still recommend for those trailing chemical exfoliant type products.
  33. I prefer the glycolic


    I tired this to change up the acids I use and I didn't love it on my skin but passed it on to someone who loves it.
  34. i like it


    I use this at night with the retnoid serum and although it hasn't helped with my pigmentation, it does keeps my skin smooth and feeling nice.
  35. Light and easy top use and a bargain!


    I have been using this product nightly for 2 weeks now and its very gentle. I started of by using it every second night and mixing with my usual moisturiser, but found no adverse affects so steppe dup to nightly at full strength. It is very easy to use and definitely brightens my skin.


    I am new to the Lactic Acids at home, after several lactic-acid-peels and I am loving this product. It's gentle yet effective. I use it 1-2 times a week, often in place of the Glycolic, when my skin is a little more sensitive and I am left with clear and bright skin the next day. It's a lovely toner that doesn't strip your skin.
  37. Amazing product


    I suffer from acne and acne scarring, within the first week of using this product I saw results. My acne has calmed down a lot too. Highly recommend!
  38. So good for the price


    This is amazing for the price. I used twice a week at bed time and it really clears my skin up and makes it look so glowy the morning after.
  39. Drastic improvement to pores


    This product really helped to shrink my pores and help my skin look bright and healthy. I’ve nearly finished my first bottle and will definitely re order.
  40. Effective lactic acid treatment


    Effective, gentle lactic acid exfoliant, I use often. Product is easy to apply and absorbs quickly. I apply at night after cleansing. The Ordinary also does a Lactic Acid 5% which would be perfect if you had sensitive skin or just wanted to work your way up to the 10%.
  41. Great product at a great price


    Really liked this product and found it really helped with break outs. I introduced it slowly and found its best for my sensitive skin if I only use a couple of times a week. Excellent price
  42. very impressed.


    works great as a quick nightly peel. soft smooth skin with fewer spots within a week.
  43. Helps with my complexion


    I have pretty oily/uneven skin tone and I find this helps but takes a few days to notice. Helps my skin look brighter too. If you have any pimples that have been popped or broken it can sting a bit when applying, personally I don't mind cause it feels like I'm killing the bastards, but then again my skin rarely reacts!
  44. I likey


    Maybe I'm jumping the gun, I've only been using this for a couple weeks but I'm already a fan. It's the first of it's type I've ever used, for a 30yo mum-of-three-lazy-skincare gal like myself I find this whole chemical exfoliator super easy. I've been using it every 2nd night alternating with retinol, on the nights I use the Lactic Acid 10% + HA, within a couple hours I can actually notice the dead skin coming away in areas on the jawline, cheeks and forehead so i feel like its working, although I probably need to use it for a while longer to see it's real potential.
    I have jumped straight into using 10% rather than easing into it with 5% and I haven't found any sensitivity, but I do not have sensitive skin at all.
    It's also super affordable so I'm keen to see where this takes my skin in another month or 2!
  45. Wow


    I use this once or twice a week. My skin always looks glowing the next day.
  46. Didn't work for me


    I was so excited when I found this product but it really didn't work for me. I have dry skin that is prone to redness. I started using it 3 times a week and saw no improvement. I increased to everynight and my skin went bright red and bumpy. I went back to 3 times a week but redness and bumps were still there. I stopped using and skin was better within a week. I wouldn't suggest for sensitive skin.
  47. Only use it in the night regimen.


    This little pink bottle is what I consider ok, whenever I buy something from the ordinary, I'd probably grab one of these. The feeling you get when you apply it is not the best, take the price into consideration would make you feel much better though. I only use it at night, cuz sometimes it doesn't go with my sunscreen. Just a little piece of advice.
  48. lightweight toner


    I have been using this and the Lactic Acid 5% one together as toners. Not sure how effective it is but it is not making my skin worse so I think it's doing its job alright :) I personally think there's better toner/serum out there to target your skin concerns.
  49. A must have


    I love The Ordinary products, fabulous products at a great price. I use this product 2-3 times a week on off days with my Retinol. Have been for 12 months, my skin is clear, glowing and often complemented.
  50. Feels tingly


    I get a slight tingling sensation whenever I use this and I do find it to help with the peeling and exfoliation of old skin, my skin feels nice and plump after using this product.
  51. Below Average..


    This product did absolutely nothing for my skin, did not exfoliate at all. Going back to physical exfoliators!


    I've been using this primarily in the crevices around my nose where I always get a build up of dead skin, and it works every single time!
  53. Really works


    My skin tone has never been so good.
    I use this 3 nights a week.
    I live in the tropics so use sunscreen daily ( recommend to be aware of uv with this one- because it really works!)
    My skin feels finer but plump.
    Happy with this purchase 100%
  54. Gentle AHA


    I have used this every night. It’s gentle. I haven’t had any irritation, prickly feelings or peeling. Almost to the point where I wonder if it’s working.
    Skin feels soft. Not sure if I’ve noticed a change for better or worse yet.
  55. nothing special


    I used it per advice and found no difference to my skin. Won't purchase again.
  56. Amazing Exfoliator


    I have oily, acne-prone skin and this works amazingly to exfoliate and smooth out my skin. I use this overnight about 1-2 times a week. It does not irritate my skin at all.
  57. gentle but strong


    I have previously used the 5% and didnt even notice this time I purchased the 10% but I am loving the extra strength. I use it of a night a few times a week when my skin feels dull and lackluster.
  58. oh yeah nice


    i was having issues with closed comedones - dumbfuck me didn't even think of putting an AHA into my routine until now and lol i fucking love it. have been kinda fiddling with putting it in my routine (like after washing or after toner - defs easing in after toner). it's been five weeks and it's really made a difference for me.
  59. Good exfoliant


    I use this once or twice a week. My skin looks brighter in the mornings.
  60. So effective for fine lines and brightening


    I have been using the 5% version of this product for a few months and felt I needed to upgrade to the 10% for some additional potency. I have noticed the difference and I am very pleased indeed. I have quite sensitive skin and this product can be a little drying so I'm sticking to 2 to 3 times per week, but even after a brief period of use I can see the difference in my skin - reduced fine lines and skin generally appears brighter and more radiant. It will stay a staple in my routine without a doubt. Definitely recommend.
  61. Good results but should have started with the 5%


    This absolutely exfoliates! I use once and week and wake up with my skin smooth and refreshed.

    Having said that I do find the 10% concentration a little too strong so i dilute with hyaluronic acid. I have sensitive skin though so i'm sure many people would use this with no issue.

    A little goes a long way so the bottle i have will last a loooong time, but when i do re-purchase I will buy the 5%.
  62. Smoothest skin ever


    I love this! It's always when I run out of something that I realise how great it was and that is the case for this product. I was using it every second night and it really helped control bumps around my chin and forehead. Occasionally I wouldn't use it for a week or so and once I did I noticed a massive difference in the texture of my skin overnight.
  63. Great for clearing up stubborn skin


    I'm 33 and don't have the will to mess around with acne and wrinkles.
    I use this religiously in my pm routine and I swear by it.
    A great, affordable and effective product.
  64. Perfect level of exfoliation


    I use this once or twice a week in conjunction with daily use of niacinamide and it's made a huge difference to the texture of my congested skin.

    For the first couple of weeks I did find my skin felt a little more sensitive for a day or two after using it but nothing too uncomfortable, just enough to make sure I don't overuse it.

  65. 10/10


    I use this a couple times a week at night. It's a super gentle AHA that really brightens your skin. I previously used glycolic acid but I have found this to be much gentler.
  66. Brightens your skin


    I upgraded to this one after using the Lactic Acid 5% as I didn't notice much of a difference with the 5% bottle. This stings your skin ever so slightly but I have noticed that my skin seems brighter. Definitely exfoliates your skin so remember to use sunscreen!
  67. My skin came back to life


    I've been using the lactic acid 10% + HA after glycolic acid at nights for almost 3 months and I can see my skin has become brighter and smoother. I had been under a lot of stress for over a year and my skin started to suffer, looking dull and dehydrated. Using The Ordinary has brought my skin back to life, I can get away with not using any make up at all
  68. It definitely works


    This stuff definitely works to exfoliate the skin, no doubt about that. I have very sensitive skin and I didn’t have a bad reaction, however this is definitely only a sometimes product, not daily! It can make your skin a little bumpy as it brings any breakouts below the skin up, however it’s all worth it as these soon go away and you’re left with clean, bright skin.
    It 100% works, but be gentle with it.
  69. just good


    This is a good product for gentle exfoliation. I use this at night and I wake up with clear skin!

    It is a gentle exfoliator, so I haven't noticed much of different for my pigmentation as I think it's quite deep.

    Make sure you wear an SPF during the day and reapply.
  70. Great AHA


    I use this a couple times a week at night. It's a super gentle AHA that really brightens your skin. I previously used glycolic acid but I have found this to be much gentler.
  71. Great as an every day exfoliator


    I found this gentle and great as an every day exfoliator. This helped fade my sun spots but require continuous use. Make sure to wear sunscreen everyday though when wearing this as it makes your skin sensitive.
  72. Fabulous option


    I have sensitive skin and after using this for three weeks every second night I have had no bad reaction or excessive peeling/flaking. I find it quite hydrating and better feeling than the salicylic acid, my skin looks plumper and clearer.
  73. Just nice, not amazing.


    Very gentle and no downtime, I use it during the week and it's really nice and it doesn't leave my skin feeling too sticky.
  74. Does really work


    I use it at PM once or twice every week.The skin feels baby soft the next day. Helped in clearing up my acne scars. Great value for money. Will definitely repurchase.
  75. Ahhhhhmazing!


    I've done so much research on how to reduce cystic and hormonal acne and nothing i ever trialed worked. it got to the point where i was ready to cut my face off, the acne was that bad!
    i tried this and my world was turned upside down.
    i exfoliate beforehand and open all my pores, then i put this on. it stung like crazy, but the results have been phenomenal! i pair this with The Ordinary Niacinamide and have achieved incredible results!
  76. The jury is out


    Just bought this on a whim as it’s so cheap, have used it a few times, and haven’t noticed a huge difference. I thiiiink my skin is slightly smoother. Wouldn’t buy it if you want dramatic results, but for a very exfoliation - seems to be doing the job.
  77. Good for daily use


    This is gentle enough to be used daily, even on my acne prone, sensitive and red skin. So I really enjoy it.
  78. This has almost eliminated my need for a physical exfoliant


    I get pretty bad flaking on my nose and used to rely heavily on a physical exfoliant to keep it smooth. Using this 3 times a week means I almost never use a physical exfoiliant anymore and I'm finding the skin on my forehead is less textured than it used to be. I've just bought my second bottle ! :)
  79. The Best


    This serum has definitely changed my skin. It took a few weeks to see results, but the results have been great. My skin is so smooth and even.
  80. Good if mixed with moisturiser


    I used this for a few weeks. It was best mixed with my night moisturiser as if i used it by itself it was too drying. I have now stopped this and turned to more gentle products such as from Paulas Choice
  81. Good


    I don’t see much of a difference with this plus it feels really oily and gross. I prefer glycolic acid because I see a difference, this is good though when I first used it it was good just glycolic acid is better.
  82. Good


    I use this twice a week and it is really good. It gives my skin glow and it is soft after using it. On my 2nd bottle. Will definitely purchace again
  83. Good


    I have noticed a big difference after using this product. My skins texture has evened out and my face feels so much smoother.
  84. Effective and lasts for ages.


    I really like this product to use once or twice a week overnight. It helps to manage breakouts and skin feels really soft after I use it. Only need a little bit so the bottle has lasted me ages!
  85. Smoothing, powerful yet non-irritating


    Fantastic product, I used on my legs, arms and face overnight with 100% cold pressed rosehip oil. My skin is baby smooth and my makeup sits better today. I have sensitive skin so I was apprehensive about using - I shouldn’t have worried! Already the marks from blemishes on my leg are fading! Get it! You won’t regret it.
  86. Skin is glowing


    Used this product w/ a variety of other Ordinary products and my skin feels amazing. So well priced and quality is fabulous, will recommend to friends for sure! Not a big fan of the peeling effect though as my skin throughout the day is flakey (I will likely only use at nighttime from here on)
  87. Smoothing, powerful yet non-irritating


    Fantastic product, I used on my legs, arms and face overnight with 100% cold pressed rosehip oil. My skin is baby smooth and my makeup sits better today. I have sensitive skin so I was apprehensive about using - I shouldn’t have worried! Already the marks from blemishes on my leg are fading! Get it! You won’t regret it.
  88. 2018


    My skin is normal to dry and the first morning i woke up after using it my skin felt so smooth. However, after a week of nightly use my skin has dried out and is peeling. I feel like more spodic and sparing usage is best.
  89. Good product


    I’m 45 with freckles so I’m using this in the hope it evens my skin tone and reduces lines. I’m also using this with The Ordinary Marine Hyaluronics, Buffet (mixed with 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder every 2nd day and Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 10% (morning routine). For night I use Marine Hyaluronics, Buffet and alternate between The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil and Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane replacing these once a week with Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane. With this routine, I’ve most definitely seen a huge difference in my skin. It’s hydrated, brighter and more evened toned. This is only after 2 months. For the price of these products, I’m amazed!
  90. Good introduction to actives!


    This is a fantastic product to use if you're just starting out with actives. It's gentle on the skin and there is hardly any sting when first applying. After a few uses I don't feel anything but I can certainly see the difference in my skin! Brighter, clearer and overall much improved.
  91. Life changing


    I have been searching for years for a skin care to clear bumps around my upper arms, I tried everything and they never work. I use this after Glycolic toner, and I can see the different within 2 days. it's definitely worth to buy and for the price point you can not complain.
  92. It's okay


    I prefer the glycolic solution better. It does make my skin feel very soft the next day and is a good weekly product for exfoliation. Will last you forever if you don't use it daily
  93. Great for sensitive skin


    I have red inflamed sensitive and dry skin. Using glycolic acid was too strong for my skin. I switched to lactic acid as I was told it was more gentle and better for dryer skin types. I love it! Especially 2 days after you apply a retinol, it just exfoliates any dry excess skin.
  94. Holy grail


    I love this stuff. makes your conplexion brighter, cleaner and softer. I use it before bed!
  95. Not sure!


    I’m not sure if this product is doing anything which is disappointing considering how amazing The Ordinary products are! I have been using it for 3 weeks now and don’t see or feel any benefits!
  96. Didn't do anything for my skin


    I tried this for 3 weeks with no visible difference. It's cheap, the packaging is easy to use. Sadly it just wasn't overly exciting for me.
  97. Use for pigmentation


    I use this for my freckles. Much cheaper than laser and more convenient. 100% recommend.
  98. My skin has never felt like this!


    I use this in conjunction with the Hyalurontic Acid and my skin has never felt better,
    I have only been using it for just 5 days and you can see and feel such a significant difference.
    I am hooked, so is my boyfriend and now I've got my mother on it!
