This is my go-to for a topical acid. I really researched and tried many, and found that LA works on my sensitive skin. AHA was just too intense and burning. I started with TO 5% and then moved to 10% with zero problems. It is funky smelling and sticky, but who cares...it works and the results show. I use it in tandem with my Retin-A (2 nights RA, then 1 night LA). That and never stepping out of …Read more

Like everyone else, I quite liked this. I have sensitive skin and started off with the 5%, then moved up to this and have no problems leaving it on for the recommended ten minutes. My skin looks bright and fresh afterwards.
. My concern is about sun exposure. I am using this to try to reduce photo damage, and I read an article - a review article of all the articles on the subject - which …

Very effective acid for your skin at a stellar price. Your skin will look clearer and brighter very quickly. It’s strong though so unless you’re used to using acids, may want to dilute the formula to start.

The only downside I can see is something I feel about the majority of their products. I love how Deciem packages their products in glass bottles but I wish they were glass …

My new HG exfoliator! I don't think I've ever tried anything that made such an immediate improvement in skin. This is my favorite acid treatment by far.

Great price, very low odor. My skin always looks glowy and feels soft the morning after I use it. I've been using it twice a week, rotating it with BHA and a mask. I will be buying this as long as they keep making it.

Because I have sensitive skin and mild rosacea, I started with the 5% and just moved up to the 10% once or twice a week. This product has helped when I have any flakiness from tretinoin. I really like it.

I have repurchased this about four times as I think it is one of the most effective products from The Ordinary. I have used Glycolic Acid for a couple of years so I purchased the 10% Lactic Acid instead of the 5% - as my skin was somewhat used to acid use. Lactic Acid is a lot more gentle on my skin than Glycolic so I didn't experience any irritation. My skin is normal - dehydrated so I use …Read more

After using this I got comments from friends about my glowing skin. However I wouldn't recommend using this if you have retinol in your routine. Even though I alternated nights and used it just once a week, it made my skin barrier too thin (I'm using The Ordinary 1% retinol in squalane). Maybe the 5% Lactic Acid is better for retinol users.

I've been using this for about a month and so far I'm really impressed! I have used AHA serums in the past (such as Pixi) but got out of the game for a bit once I introduced Differin to my routine. I purchased this on a whim at Sephora and I'm so glad I tried it. It's gentle but it has really made a difference in the clarity and texture of my skin. My skin looks less dull and …Read more

I wasn’t sure I would like this but my usual glycolic acid night peel lotion has been out of stock for quite some time now and I thought this was worth taking a chance on for the price. Lactic acid is gentler than glycolic acid and so I feel it may not be quite as effective. Also, many people have compared this to Sunday Riley Good Genes, and having tried that out a couple of years ago and not …Read more
