”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.”

I bought this because of the many positive reviews. And true enough,with just 5 days of use, i have noticed that bumps on my face have diminished. I have been looking for serum that would address irregularities in skin texture. And this is the answer! Why have i discovered the ordinary just now??? The results are amazing and i would want to repurchase.

Works but it takes time to see the difference

I just had the worst breakout right before entering college. The small bumps are all over my forehead and sides of my cheeks. I've been using this product together with niacinamide from the same brand for more than 1 month already and I can say that I could really see the difference. The small bumps on my forehead cleared. It's really smooth now. Although, I still have dark spots and some bumps on my cheeks I could testify that it really works.

good for hyperpigmentation

my friend recommended me the brand and i saw a lot of good review on youtube and decided to give it a try, i was supposed to buy the salicylic one but it’s sold out so i buy this instead and i’m really glad i did, been using this for a month and it fades my hyperpigmentation on my chin, still have half a bottle but i’m planning to buy the 10% next since my skin is used to it now, if you’re sensitive you should start with 5% and see if you can handle it

Love this!!

1st of all, it’s my first time using Lactic Acid, tho I’ve used BHA power liquid frm Cosrx bfore w/c didnt work for me. Anyway, I wasn’t expecting anything from this. I just want a clear skin like what I’ve read from a lot of reviews. It’s my 3rd day using it every night & I’m loving it! It totally exfoliates my skin and removed the dead skin hence my pores have extremely become smaller!!! I’M NOT KIDDING. Like i was shocked coz I’ve also been using before the Cosrx 2in1 poreless and somewhat It made my pores smaller but still not enough but this one, in just 3DAYS!!😱 This is definitely a must try!!! I also dont have any purging from this & i might say it is safe to use for beginners. Can’t wait what more it could offer especially for my pimples

great for beginners

I've been curious about acids for a while and according to beauty gurus on YouTube, this is one of the best to try out first if you haven't tried AHA/BHA before. I had a few bumps on the side of my face and after two nights of using this, I noticed that they were gone. I highly recommend this to those just starting out. Will probably try the one with more acid concentration when I finish this!

Im new to acids..and im a bit skeptical about trying it bcoz i have dry, sensitive and acne prone skin as well..so since im a beginner to these acids, i decided to try a lower concentrated acid since im not sure if my skin will love the product..soo as soon as i got the package, i read the instructions ofc to make sure im not using it incorrectly.. Also guys..just a tip..these acids wont break you out...these are well concentrated..the possibilities that can trigger acnes are those products that you are mixing with these acids..soo before trying out acids, make sure you did your research bcoz there are active ingredients that shouldnt be mixed with you skincare routine that can cause irritation and acnes.. Moving forward, i cleansed and toned my skin and used this Lactic Acid 5% and i was AMAZED with what it did to my skin on my first try..but ofc i gave it 1wk before providing my thoughts about this product. I dont want to exaggerate things but im telling you..on the first day i used it, i felt the dead skin melting when i applied this..and it's not just that, it also did a great job resurfacing the texture of my skin and in everytime i use it, i can see that the small bumps on my face are getting smaller and smaller..and now there's only 4bumps remaining...hahaha im so happy i tried this.. Next time i will try the one that contains 10% lactic acid.. Use this only at night time and remember to use sunscreen in the morning..it is very important to use sunscreen in the morning when using these at night ;)
