”This has replaced my 112$ serum that I was previously using. I mean………..I dont think I need to say much more. Thank you for making skin care that has integrity and keeps its prices in a place where people can comfortably have a 3-6 step skin care routine without it costing college tuition. I appreciate it.”

” I LOVE this product offering from Deciem. I purchased this in my second round of ordering (I always try new products when reordering my staples) and it is now one of the every day use products in my standard routine. My skin looks so even and bright after using this for several weeks. I love the smell, love the color, love the application, love everything about it. I haven’t had any issues with peeling or discomfort with daily use of this solution, although my skin is very used to acids and peels, which may be the reason. Highly recommend.”

It’s okay

I love everything from the ordinary which is why I try almost every product from this brand. For this item, I did not see significant changes on my skin, but the good thing is, like all the ordinary products, it did not cause my sensitive skin to break out. Might not repurchase again but will definitely try their other lineup.

good introductory acid

i like “the ordinary” as you can get the right product for your skin concerns. you just have to know which acid your skin needs. i used this acid because i wanted to re-introduce acids in my skincare regimen. this is runny and is easily absorbed by my skin, no smell either. it didn’t give me breakouts but, i found that my skin needs more than just lactic acid, this is hydrating though

A product which I swear by

This product together with The ordinary Niacinamide and Salicylic Acid saved me from months of acne from the Manila pollution and hormonal acne. Been putting this every single night and it really works for me. And I hope it will work for you too! PS: The bottle is really fragile so do take good care of it just as you'll take care a child. 😂

Makes my skin smooth

I've been using this for exactly one week and one thing I've noticed is that my skin becomes smoother. The only drawback I see is that it tends to make my oily skin a little bit more oily. I'm also experiencing a mild purge but it is to be expected due to the increased cellular turnover from dull to smooth, radiant and glowing skin. I just hope the extra oiliness I have subsides from applying it as the time goes by.

Gentle Exfoliant!

My dermatologist gave this to me to try out, but in a tiny unlabelled bottle. She just called it "lactic acid". Try it. I used it for a week and the loved the results--a fresher face. Exofoliating among women "of a certain age" is a must. So I asked my derma to get me the full-sized product. When I dropped by her office, lo and behold, a pleasant surprise--it's this much-raved-about brand! Glad to meet you!

Great product

This one is for hyperpigmentation, Age spots, sun spots, Anti‑aging, Lightening, Scar Treatment, Collagen Boosting, to give you a brighter uneven skin tone. It should be used at night and leave on for 10 minutes. This is a skin peel that exfoliates you skin and will take 3/6 weeks to start seeing a difference. For ALL skin types.
