REVIEW | THE ORDINARY GLYCOLIC ACID 7% TONING SOLUTION


Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (fruit acid) that exfoliates the skin. Over the years, I have realised that my skin prefers chemical exfoliation to manual exfoliation.
Chemical exfoliants penetrate deeper into the skin, shed more dead skin cells promoting healthy cellular regeneration.
I have used a glycolic acid toner for a while now albeit at a lower concentration of 5% but, I felt it was time to go up a notch. (I have used glycolic acids peels of a much higher concentration so I knew my skin could tolerate a higher percentage)
This toner contains 7% Glycolic acid, Amino acids, Aloe vera, Ginseng, and Tasmanian Pepperberry.

I like this toner, I actually feel a tingle when I use it after certain products - I like such things because I feel like the product is working Lol!
I have been using this toner for a while now and I like it; I use it just at night as per recommendation by the brand and I have had no issues pairing it with other active ingredients (My night time routine has a lot of active ingredients)
This toner is not drying but I don't think I would call it a moisturizing toner either, since I added this to my regimen my skin has gotten clearer, brighter and my scars/hyper pigmentation seem to be fading quicker than before - A lot of products in my regimen target these issues but I feel this toner actually helps speed things up.
I feel only love for this toner right now and I can see myself repurchasing it for sure!

Side note: I like the pipette like attachment that comes with this toner, I feel like I have better control on how much product is dispensed. I kept the regular cap to use when necessary but I have had no issues with the pipette like nozzle.

If your skin likes Glycolic acid you will probably like this toner, If you are new to glycolic acid I would recommend starting with a toner that has a lower percentage of acid like the Pixi glow tonic (read review for Pixi glow tonic here)
