”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.”

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. ✨

Not for acne-prone skin

My skin was flaky because I am using Acne.Org's Benzoyl Peroxide to clear up my acne. Now, I am all healed but have hyperpigmentation and flaky skin. I bought this hoping that it will solve all my remaining problems. Unfortunately, made my skin have some white pustules but not really pimples. It's like white little puss inside the skin but they are not bumpy. The only thing that I like is, it made my skin smooth.

Good glycolic acid toner.

I got this after I run out of my pixi glow tonic thinking it could replace that in my skin care routine. It's stronger than glow tonic not just because it's 2% higher than pixi's, but the formula itself isn't as soothing and gentle as pixi's glow tonic. I couldn't use this twice a day as it dries my skin too much and that's coming from someone who's used different levels of glycolic acid ranging from 5% up to 20% on my skin. I resorted to using this once a day and it didn't dry me out as much but I didn't get the exfoliating effect I want. Basically if I use it twice a day it's too strong and if I use it once a day it's not strong enough; I wasn't getting the results I wanted. So while the price is great and in theory the ingredients makes it a nice dupe or substitute for the pixi glow tonic, the actual formulation isn't for me; ended up just going back to pixi glow tonic.

So far just okay

I'm still looking for my HG AHA product and I'm not sure if this is it. Before trying this I used The Ordinary's 10% lactic acid. Comparing the two, I find the lactic acid produces faster and better results for me, it's just that I was starting to feel off about the texture of it so I wanted to try a liquid AHA. This one has just been okay so far, and I'm not blown away. I think the lactic acid is better but will hope for similar results with more regular use.

Useful than your ex!

I super love this product! I bought this as my first toner since I had usually been using Eskinol as cleanser/toner every day and night. I was researching a lot and was kinda torn whether I'd buy this one or the Pixi. I was glad I chose this because aside from it's cheaper than Pixi, its effects also exceeded my expectations. I have been using this for more than a week now, applying each night I'd wake up with a GLOWING face. I freakin' kid you not! At first, I was slightly apprehensive about using it because I have had read reviews that sometimes first-time users experience purging, but I didn't. It dried out if not all, most of my pimples and I also have this small bumps and textures on my right jaw which have been slowly fading. My pimple marks are fading faster than usual. I would rate this 10 out of 10! It's that good! I hope you are able to try this too. I followed some advice I read online and incorporated this slowly into my routine each night. DO NOT USE THIS IN THE MORNING. Trust me, even if I don't put the disclaimer here you would know on your first try why you shouldn't use this in the morning. The first few applications would sting a little but its bearable, as for me, it's almost 2 weeks now and it doesn't sting my face anymore. I use this with the Retinoid Emulsion 2% that's also from The Ordinary which also works well!
