Enhance your skin’s appearance with The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%, a mild exfoliator that improves skin tone by reducing textural irregularities linked to pigmentation.

Suitable for normal skin types, The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% features lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that effectively exfoliates the skin, leaving you with a visibly even, glowing appearance. In addition to improving skin texture, it’s also enriched with purified Tasmanian pepperberry, which minimises the visible signs of inflammation and sensitivity that’s often associated with exfoliation.

Not to mention, the gentle formula maintains a pH balance of 3.8 which matches the pKa strength of lactic acid, preventing further irritation and maximising the acid’s exfoliating effect.

Why We Love It

The honey-hued treatment is incredibly lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. Lots of exfoliators have to be removed after use, but this one doesn’t. With the handy pipette function, it’s quick and easy to use and ensures you never over apply.

How To Use It

Use once a day. Apply to a dry face, ideally in the evening. If necessary, you can dilute this product with other treatments until the skin builds up a tolerance.

Use sunscreen for a week after using this product

Note: Do not use on sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Amazing product. Believe it or not but just after one use I've noticed my skin is brighten and texture of my skin started to improve after a week or so. I have combination skin and it worked perfectly for me. I wouldn't use it on irritated or "damaged" skin- it can burn slightly. I will defo repurchase it as it works wonders for my skin. This product easily beats high end (pricey!) products from other brands. Fantastic product for the price. Thank you so much The Ordinary!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use u can feel it working... Wonderful stuff! Easy to apply, as it dries u can feel it working. Skin is soft smooth and the dry tight feeling banished. I love it, i follow it up with the Ordinary retinol in squalane and watch the lines iron out. I love all the ordinary products and prices.
