PERFECT FOR: Silky, supple skin

”Absolutely cannot live without this stuff! I tend to use this every night after cleansing, toning and my HA + B5 serum and before my moisturizer which I always add the squalene oil to. And everyday I wake up with baby soft glowing skin! The Ordinary products have changed my skin for the better and made my bank account happy!”

”Amazing product! It has a milky serum consistency that goes on smooth with zero irritation. I’ve been using it for a few months now and it quickly became a permanent product in my routine. It has eliminated almost all the texture on my skin, so much so that I rarely ever wear foundation anymore, and if I do, it’s a thin sheer layer. Once I run out of my current bottle, I plan on purchasing the 10% version.”

Love love love!!

Omg i love this product so much! Found it out because of hyram and decided to buy it. I use this like 3 times a week and i put sunscreen right in the morning cause it may dry your skin. It really works and makes my skin lighter and smoother!

Gentle Acid, no words to say but i need to write my review hehe

So yeah, this is my first time using a direct acid on my skincare routine and i was completely shooktd when i tried it. Grabe, as in wow. Ang gentle nito mag-exfoliate. Tapos hindi masakit sa skin. Like akala ko, mah tingling sensations akong mafe-feel coz this was an acid. Pero no, super gentle lang nya like wth, nalinis yung pores ko and nagfade unti-unti yung hyperpigmentation ko. Ang galing! Deserve ang 5 stars! Love it 😍

Seeing results in just 1 week!!!!

I love that it’s milder than the 10% it doesn’t have that too much stinging. I bought both Lactic acids with 10% and 5% but this one has a korean sticker at the back and the other The ordinary products i had didn’t have. Anyway, it has good effect on my skin naman. Does’t smell bad and it also feels cool.

When they say the ordinary, you know you’re about to get your money’s worth. Took long til i was able to get a stock (i mean, the hype is so real) but i’m so glad i instantly got it when it restocked. This won’t give you instant next day results but continuous using will give you naturally healthy skin because of the chemical exfoliation. No need to worry about dull skin because this will save you from that!!! Worth the try, and its super kind to the skin!!

Gentle exfoliant

At first I had doubts because most people said they had some skin peeling. I didn’t — but the longer I used this, the more I saw the effects everyone was talking about: the glow and suppleness of the skin. The reviews are all true and I’m so glad I bought something to help glow up my skin. It’s a must-use for me every night.
