”Love love love this product! Before this I was using the nip + fab glycolic night pads both morning and evening & they were great but I started to notice after a while they were less effective. I then found these which were stronger and also far cheaper and my skins been so clear that I literally only use this every now and again. The only thing I don’t like is the tacky feeling after but it’s a very minor thing. Overall the product & price is fantastic.”

Clear skin

I do not usually use a toner but because I have been experiencing persistent and recurrent acne, I decided to look for a skincare regimen that will help clear my skin. I have heard of the brand the ordinary and decided to peruse their products. I decided to purchase the glycolic toner since it promises to clarify the skin. During the first few applications, there was a bit fo stinging since it's an acid and my skin isn't used to toners. What I like about it is it still seems mild and it has no odor. My skin feels clean afterwards. There is no drying effect. So far my skin has been clearing up with the regular use of this toner. I will definitely continue using this product.

Best Micro-Peeling Toner Eveeeeer!

My sister originally recommended this to me because she had the most breakouts from high school that left scars on her face. This was by far the best micro-peeling toner I have ever tried (well, this is the first ever peeling toner I ever had). I do have dark spots from major acne problems and this product helped lighten those spots — with the help of other moisturizing products I used. I use this product every night and I am in love with this!

The "tiis-ganda" skincare

I don't think this product helped me to cure my acne but it definitely removed my pimple marks after my acne dried out. I've been trying to find a product that removes blemishes for years and I can swear to this product. After years of trial-and-error, I finally found a product that works. HOWEVER, it stings on my skin to the point that I could cry because of the pain! It hurts the most when I have active acne that I needed to treat. Super tiis ganda talaga etong product na ito pero effective sya.

Fave AHA ever!

I've used the CosRX AHA 7 liquid (which was just okay) and Pixi Glow Tonic (which broke me out) so i was a bit apprehensive about TO glycolic acid but i'm so glad i tried it! It's mild, doesn't sting, and doesn't smell as "bad" (imo) as the CosRX acid. I also haven't had any cystic pimple since i began using it (bought it 3 weeks ago), and my complexion looks brighter. Definitely a holy grail skincare item for me ♥

The A-list

I tried the Pixi Glow Tonic before and it saved my face like crazy. I’m a mother of a demanding toddler with sleepless nights as I work the graveyard shift. Yes, I look like a zombie but Glycolics made me look like a human somehow. I wanted to continue my relationship with Pixi then again I have bills to pay and food comes in first in the hierarchy of needs. Then just like a shooting star..I stumbled upon..The Ordinary which is absolutely OUT of the ORDINARY. Been using it for the past 6 mos and I still have about a quarter of the total content left. I used Pixi for just a month and it costs me about 400bucks more than this. This solution serves as my saving grace amidst the crazies of life. I don’t get that “bungang araw” type acne across my forehead. Still with occasional breakout (single pimple) when it’s the time of the month but heals quickly. Damage done by previous acne are considerably lighter and my complexion is a whole lot brighter. And that’s just 4 hours of sleep on weekdays girls! ;)

Mild but powerful!

This toner, despite having a pretty high concentration of glycolic acid (considering that this is a non-prescription AHA toner), is non-drying. However, it effectively lightens and smoothens my skin. I also like the fact that for its price, I’m getting way too much of the product at 240 mL. This is one of HG The Ordinary purchases and I will keep repurchasing this every time I would run out. ✨
