I had moderate acne, dark spots from acne, and oily skin. I decided to try The Ordinary. I started using 4 products: salicylic acid solution, niacinimide + zinc, 5% lactic acid, and ascorbyl glucoside. My regimen is Just facial wash then one of those serums. Nothing else. I use the niacinimide then salicylic acid in the day (I wash my face twice at daytime) and on alternate nights, the lactic …Read more

As I’m new to acids, I didn’t want to jump to high strength acids and this was perfect for beginners like me. It’s really really gentle but effective. However, after 7 months of using this, i feel like this might be too gentle for me. I won’t be repurchasing as i’ll be upgrading to 10% once my bottle is finished.

A little advice: before starting on acids, please please please maintain …

It seems from reading these reviews that there's a wide variation in how people react to this product. As someone with sensitive and thin skin, this product gave me immediate results. However, I find it's too strong and I don't need it.

-The first time I put it on for 1.5 hours until my face started to sting like the product was biting into my skin
-my skin was indeed …

Probably the most pointless product I've ever used. It was as effective as putting water on my face.

[FRUSTRATED HOWL] This did not agree with my sensitive, acne-prone skin.

I have sensitive skin prone to hyperpigmentation and breakouts. I wanted something to use in-between my retin-A applications to exfoliate my skin. Since retin-A thins out the skin it needed to be gentle though.

I probably apply this in a way people would find strange... First some Matrixyl+HA from The Ordinary, then some marula oil all over, from the same company. Then 3-4 drops of this …

Extremely gentle but surprisingly effective. This is a great acid serum for beginners. no irritation but tangible results. It has a medium consistency that rubs in very easily. I use five drops on my face and another 5 on my neck and chest. I found it very effective on rough textured skin and helping fade hyperpigmentation.

This was perfect for my sensitive skin with mild rosacea. I was just beginning to use tretinoin. After a month or so, I started using this in the morning whenever I had some flakey skin. I found it worked well for removing flakey skin even though it is only 5%. I use it at least once per week and probably going to increase soon. Will definitely repurchase.

I'm not much of an acid user so for me, this actually worked really well. The texture of my skin got a lot smoother after using this every other day. I like that it's mild because I live in Australia where the sun is very strong.

Some of the pitted scars I have already look so much better after a couple of weeks of use. My skin is less congested too.

I like it a lot …

This product was my first experience with The Ordinary brand and I’m not disappointed. It was gifted to me but it’s sold cheaply and readily available so availability for repurchase won’t be a problem.
I’ve been using this product twice a week for roughly 3 months now and the hyperpigmentation and acne marks on my skin have greatly improved. I can’t fully credit the improvement to this …
