The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 240ml

£6.80

Boost your skin’s natural radiance with The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, a mild acid exfoliator for normal skin types that delivers a visibly brighter complexion with an even texture.

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution gently exfoliates the skin without any rubbing, leaving a glowing complexion with visible clarity. The use of ginseng root and aloe vera add an additional boost of radiance while also soothing the skin.

The formula contains a natural Tasmanian pepperberry derivative that limits any irritation linked to acid use. Combined, with a water-like formula that also maintains a pH balance of 3.6, which directly matches the pKa strength of glycolic acid for the least irritation possible.

Why We Love It

With an extensive knowledge of the benefits of natural ingredients and a sound understanding of the way in which pH and pKa work together, The Ordinary uses modern scientific advancements to create a direct acid formula that delivers bright and smooth skin while minimising redness or irritation.

The peach-hued liquid is held in a transparent bottle with a simple nozzle top, reflecting The Ordinary's sleek, stripped back approach to presentation. The Ordinary lets the formula and its results, speak for itself!

How To Use It

Use in the evening, no more frequently than once per day. After cleansing skin, pour the formula onto a cotton pad and sweep across the face and neck, avoiding the eye contour. Do not rinse off.

Note: this formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Limit sun exposure and apply SPF for a week after using this product.

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution 240ml is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too harsh Bought this after reading reviews that said it was like Pixi glow tonic, this was too harsh for me. It did work in the sense it smoothed my rough bumpy skin, but after a few weeks realised it was just too harsh and made my skin red and sensitive. I’ve actually stopped using all glycolic acid products now and my skin is much better for it. After some research I realised all these daily acids just aren’t necessary or suitable for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Cystic Acne Sufferer A little goes a long way with this one. It's very strong stuff so just a once over with a cotton pad once a day is enough to leave my skin fresh, clean and glowy after cleansing. I use this alongside the cleanser and niacinamide and it's clearing up my cystic acne pigmentation and scars very well so far. Also not a single spot in over 2 weeks! I love the bottle design, very easy to use, doesn't leak. I couldn't ask for much more really.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quantity for it's price I bought this toning solution about 3 weeks ago now and have you using it nightly for about two weeks. I like the tingliness that it leaves on my face after applying it with cotton. It also leaves a rather oily matte to my face after drying though, which I'm not sure if this is a protective layer that it creates to help prevent breakouts because I still get 2-3 small pimples on my face every 2-3 days. I purchased this item mainly to help correct my hyperpigmentation ( dark spots on face), but I realise now that I will need to use a different solution that is more concentrated on solving this issue.
