    The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

    The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution Reviews

    Can’t do without
    Skin looking smooth. Pores visibly reduced. Value for money
    Best toner
    I’ve feel that my face is cleaner every time I used this toner
    Love it
    My skin really loves it. Waking up with even soft skin, since using it. Still trying to get rid of the milia under my eye but it has definitely already improved.
    It’s so good
    Tonic is so good. I use in the evening everyday. I feel my skin clearly and smoothly. I love it.
    Excellent Tonic!
    Cleared up my skin without drying out.
    Excellent Tonic!
    I have normal skin, prone to oil in the t-zone by the end of the day. The product suited me perfectly! I use it in the evening as the final step for cleansing my skin, exfoliates excellently and smoothes the skin!
    Best Acid Toner for this Price
    Wow ! this stuff is amazing & epic value for money , I have tried 3 other acid toners & they are all excellent , but this is superb & the price is even better. I have sensitive skin prone to Rosacea & even though this is a 7% glycolic acid toner I am comfortably able to use it twice a day without any discomfort whatsoever. My skin has never looked better, please never stop selling this!
    LOVE is toning solution...
    This product is amazing. The combination of these has transformed my 47-year-old lacklustre skin which had pigmentation issues, lines and some slightly enlarged pores around my nose. It appears to be similar to other products but a fraction of the cost. As I mentioned in another product review, these products have done more than a very expensive dermatological facial and is a fraction of the cost of the high-grade products I was recommended. I will keep using now for sure. My skin moisturizer sinks in faster goes further too. Just amazing.
    Not for Acne-Prone Skin
    My skin was flaky. I am all healed but have hyperpigmentation and flaky skin. I bought this hoping that it will solve all my remaining problems. Unfortunately, it made my skin have some white pustules but not really pimples. It's like white little puss inside the skin but they are not bumpy. The only thing that I like is, it made my skin smooth.
    Best toner ever!
    Immediately cleared up any pimples without drying out my face.
    The Ordinary
    Fantastic products and fantastic prices. My skin looks better at 49 than it did 10 years ago thanks to discovering the various The Ordinary products.
    Brilliant
    It lights up my acne discolourations. This toner also protects my skin against recurrence of acne.
    Good product
    I ordered it as a replacement product for Pixi Glow Tonic. I think they are very similar.
    Changed my skin care game
    Of all the products I have had to add to my routine due to my adult-onset acne, this has made the most visible and life-altering positive change to my skin. I was one of the lucky ones who had baby-like skin in my teenage years, and this heaven-sent of a toner has brought my skin back to its once youthful glow. I also use this as my deodorant, and it hasn't failed me in that aspect as well. A bottle lasts well beyond 6 months despite daily use on my face and pits. I hope you restock soon.
    The Ordinary
    It is a top product :)
    Good Product
    Good product but need more time to finalise the review.
    Brilliant!
    I use this 3 times a week and that is enough for me. My skin has become so much more clear and glowy since using! I would definitely recommend
    Great for the entire body
    I always get small annoying pimples on my chest during summer and this year I'm finally free from them thanks to this toner. A few swipes with a cotton pad with some of this product on it for a couple of weeks and my pimples were gone! I also use it on my oily acne prone face with Azelaic acid and my skin looks very healthy and smooth, I can definitely see less clogged pores. Would definitely recommend, especially as a prevention measure.
    AHHH-MAZING
    I had so much acne before using this product and now my skin is so much clearer! It brightens up the skin and now my skin is glowingggg. I used it for around two weeks only at night and I am so satisfied. I will definitely re-buy it ♥️
    Great value for money
    I can’t think of any reason for not buying this. It’s the cheapest glycolic acid I’ve ever tried and it works as well as any other. Large bottle, good packaging and wonderful for my skin.
    You need this
    This is the best glycolic toner I have ever used. I use this every night along with the ordinary serums. My acne scars started to fade within the first week.
    Relief for acne!
    I waited few weeks to write my review so I could test this toner properly! I'm 32 now, never suffered from acne nor in my teen-age, and a few months ago lots of painful pimple appeared on my lower cheek bone, jaw line and around my mouth. I tried different ones before deciding to buy this. I sensed immediate relief. Already after the first application, and In 4 weeks now my skin is restoring it's normal glow and no more painful pimples on my face! Scars still there of course, but I'm trusting they'll be gone soon!
    Helped my late acne
    I never suffered from acne or any blemish in my life, nor even when I was a teenager! But a few months ago (I'm 32 now, olive mixed skin) some pimples on my cheekbones and jawline appeared. So I started removing products from my skincare and trying acne remedies... but nothing changed up to when I started using this toner! In one week usage only, those painful pimples started to visibly heal. It tingles a little when you apply it, but only for a few seconds. Really a good product! Recommend to anyone. Your skin will thank you!
    Game changer
    I've read lots of good thing about the Pixi Glow Tonic but I decided to try out this instead - way better price. And I was super impressed. Just after few days, the texture of my skin was almost gone and soon after my pores reduced. It made putting on makeup dreamy! I guess my skin is not super sensitive to glycolic acid, as I experienced only slight tingling sensations when I had some breakouts, but it went away in seconds.
    Very nice
    Works nicely. Skin is smoother in the morning and getting clearer. I think this is definitely giving my serums a boost at night time! Love that it is so cheap.
    Neck pigmentation
    I've had pigmentation on the sides of my neck for over a decade, it looked dirty & made me feel self-conscious. I'm in my late 40's so doesn't help with the aging look.
    OMG
    I have to admit, I wasn't really convinced that it would do wonders on my skin but it is pretty cheap, so I decided to give it a go before trying some more expensive ones like Pixi. My skin has never been so soft! I have way less texture on my skin (and I really did have some issues with that) and almost no dry patches. I'm definitely gonna buy a second bottle when my first run out.
    Incredible
    So so so happy with this product, especially considering how affordable it is. Had itchy, dry skin when I first used it but after persistence, it has completely rejuvenated my face. Have had trouble for years and never found anything that has made any difference, but this has got rid of small stubborn spots and continues to improve the texture, scars and clarity after 2 months of use. I used it a couple days a week, to begin with, but now use it every night and am blown away each morning by how my skin looks. The bottle is large and so will last for a long time too!
    love love
    Game changer. Just is a few weeks my acne scars faded so much. Works better for me than the Alpha H one. My complexion is glowing.
    thank you deciem
    All I can say I thank you Deciem for making an amazing inexpensive exfoliating toner that does just what it promises!!
    Love it
    The glycolic acid toning solution is just brilliant - lifts superficial oils that accumulate over the day without ever drying my skin out despite normally being prone to do so. Feels especially lovely if you layer hyaluronic acid or "buffet" solution on top soon after. Lastly - fantastic pricing. Thank you DECIEM for bringing affordable researched skincare to the mass market.
    Love it!
    It makes my skin glows in the morning. It gives me the dewy look when I wake up. Definitely cleared my skin. The initial stinging sensation is normal for those who are new to acids, it will gradually go away after the 3rd application or so. I'd say give it a try.
    Good day to day basic
    This is a weaker acid than say a peel, so don't expect life changing results overnight. However, after a week or so of use, the texture of my skin feels significantly better and it definitely looks brighter. I didn't feel any tingling even though I am relatively new to acids, although I don't have particularly sensitive skin so using it nightly has done no harm. For the price, ease of use and difference it can make, I'd say it's a no-brainer to add into your routine.
    It's okay
    When I used it for the first time my skin broke out the next day. I thought that was a reaction to the product, but turned out the reason was mixing the toning with the ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. It's better to wait at least 20-30 minutes and then use another routine. So if your skin also got irritated, just try it alone one more time, the product is totally worth a shot.
    Not worth the hype!
    I've been loyal to Pixi Glow for the last 5 years, and I read somewhere that this was "Pixi Glow leveled up".. It really isn't! It burns every single time I apply it, it's given me acid burn on my face, and it does nothing but irritate my skin. I wanted to love this SO MUCH but I just can't. Going back to my beloved Pixi Glow.
    Not for me
    It might be a great product but I think my skin just doesn't react with glycolic acid. Didn't noticed any difference in my skin.
    Great in moderation
    I really enjoy this acid toner. In junction with their lactic acid, it exfoliates very well. And the price can’t be beat. But for people with skin sensitivity to glycolic acid or first time users of acid should be careful. I have used a variety of acids everyday for more than a year, but I found that I had to cut down to every other day with this one. That 7% to the 5% of the Pixi Glow tonic really makes a difference. It does also make it pretty cost effective. All in all a great product if used moderation.
    Excellent product
    Can't describe how it made my skin look, flawless and bright .
    Best product
    I love it as all The Ordinary products I have tried. Best brand ever
    Does an excellent job
    I previously used Pixi which I also love but decided to give this a go. Not disappointed and I think this is cheaper. Will definitely buy again.
    Best toner I've used
    I have had problematic skin for years now and have tried various skin regimes/products. This toner has been by far the best toner I have used, and I can really tell the difference in my skin since using it. Would 10/10 recommend, the price point is also a steal too!
    Muito bom!
    Amei o produto, os resultados são imediatos. ***I love the product, the results are immediate.***
    MUST HAVE.
    I simply couldn’t be without this wonder product. After moths of using Alpha-H I thought that was the best I could do and how wrong I was. With a combination of this product the 30% aha peel and the niacinamide 10% I’ve not had one break out since and it’s stopped my razor burn on you face as well 10/10
    Great toner and amazing product for the price
    Have been waiting for this to come into stock for ages and definitely feel its made a difference and made my skin brighter plus its amazing for the price compared to similar products!
    Will Repurchase!
    I have been using this as a part of my night skincare routine for a couple of months now, and I really like how my skin is looking. I can't tell for sure if it is thanks to this, but I am gonna repurchase it and use it every night. Because why change something that works? (:
    Great Value for Money
    Skin type : Normal- prone to dehydration & nose blackheads. Bought this on a whim because of an offer on The Ordinary products. Good for daily acid exfoliation and not drying on skin at all. I have not experienced any stinging, or redness of any sorts. Would repurchase, as it is great value for money.
    Wow
    It's really good I applied now around 2 days and there is a clear difference in my skin. Its a great night time treatment.
    Unsure
    The toner is really good, even when I wash off my make up and think there isn't any make up left on my face and I use this toner so much more make up comes off. Sometimes it stings here and there, however I like to feel like it is working on my skin. I Haven't seen a huge difference in my face but the price is amazing for the amount of product. My face does feel fresh and clean afterwards.
    Best Toner
    Love all The Ordinary products, good value, high-end ingredients and they work! Love the toner, doesn't irritate my skin at all and leaves fresh, bright and exfoliated.
    Not bad, but not good either
    I used half of the bottle and I still don’t know what exactly this toner does to my skin. It didn't harm it, which is good, but I didn’t see a dramatic difference everyone is talking about.
    Good quality for low price
    It just works. My skin relief became even, and skin looks more radiant in general. Would recommend.
    Great for the price
    Apart from the fact it smells like pond water, it is as effective as similar more expensive products I have used in the past. I will continue to use this product.
    But, I'd still choose Pixi Glow Tonic over this!
    It's stronger & cheaper than Pixi but, it still somehow doesn't bring that glow & fades acne scars as quick as Pixi. So I use this for underarm detox. Helps with the odour & little hyperpigmentation.
    It works
    After a few weeks, the texture of my skin is so smooth.
    Totally Changed My Skincare Game
    I started struggling with adult-onset acne the moment I turned 30. I have tried a lot of products prior to this, and while those products did help in keeping inflammation down and speeding up the healing process of my acne, none have been as instrumental in bringing my pre-acne skin condition back as this toner. The bumps and the pimples have become nothing more than a once-a-month occurrence, and I can't even begin to describe the glow I get from using this.
    Very good acid toner, excellent price
    A very effective acid toner, quite strong with a simple formulation. I don't use this every day and I do use other acids from The Ordinary as well. I would recommend this toner, but also say be careful not to over-use and irritate your skin.
    Simply effective
    It was my first acid toner and it never burned my face. After a month of use, my face has become more even toned. It gently exfoliate the skin and is one of my holy grail products.
    Love it!
    Great toner, great price! Makes my skin look glowy.
    Worth the investment
    I’ve had problems with an uneven skin tone and marking on my skin for a couple of years now, but combined with a few other products from this website this product worked a treat. After the second day of using my skin was a lot smoother and healthier. I never usually write reviews but I feel this deserves it, as it works very well considering the battle I’ve previously had with a bad complexion.
    Good for acne scars, but not much else
    I swapped over to this after finishing a mini bottle of the pixi glow tonic which worked great on my skin, but it was just a bit too pricey to re-buy, and this product also happened to have pretty good reviews. I have oily/combo skin and the only thing that this has helped me with is getting rid of some acne scars, but other than that I have broken out in tiny bumps all over my forehead and cheeks and my skin is pretty dry. I probably wouldn’t recommend this product and if anyone is interested, it smells quite a bit like sewage.
    The best toner that will totally change your skin
    Hands down for the best PM toner. I have previously used a toner from another brand (which has 5% glycolic acid) and the results were not so spectacular. Plus, the price was like 10x higher than this baby. I am so glad I came across to this one, The Ordinary has some awesome products and this is one of them. It changed my skin within days, it literally glows day after day. It is a must have for sure! ❤️
    Great acid toner
    I really enjoy glycolic acid and this toner was well worth waiting for. Its a good price for great results. I find my skin has a better texture and is smoother. There is zero burning or irritation on the application just the mildest tingling which is good. I will continue to re-purchase.
    My favourite acid
    Truly. I'm using it every night now and my skin is happy!
    Like glow tonic, but cheaper!
    Love love love this!! Been using it for 4 days now, after my pm cleanses before my 0.2 retinoids and it's lovely. Doesn't sting, leave skin red or inflamed. Has cleared up some small random bumps under my chin that weren't visible but I could feel coming up. Doesn't smell strong and easy to use with the dispensing lid it comes with. Takes a min to soak into the cotton pad but I will definitely be repurchasing this as long as they keep producing it.
    Лучший ***The best***
    Потрясающая вещь. Жаль что нигде не достать. Постоянно в wait листе. ***Awesome product. It is a pity that it's hard to get hold of as it is constantly on the wait list.***
    Brilliant
    I absolutely love this product. I've just bought a second one and bought one for my mum too. Leaves my skin glowing. Really pleased with results. (I'm 50 this year) I've also used Pixi Glow tonic which didn't seem to do anything for me.
    Must-have
    This is my second bottle and I will be repurchasing for as long as it's sold! Great daily exfoliator, leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean, and helps improve my complexion.
    Amazing
    I’ll never need to spend triple the price on Estée Lauder or Clinique again. I love this product so much, it’s more gentle than I expected it to be and the size is huge and the price is great. I just hope The Ordinary continue to provide good quality products at low prices because of you increase the price I’ll go looking for the next up and coming brand to swap too!
    Budget friendly
    It's okay, it does the job and is a good budget toner but it just doesn't leave my skin looking brighter and smoother like the Pixi Glow Tonic does.
    Love it
    It's a cheaper and better version of the Pixi glow tonic, love this brand so much.
    Can’t do without it
    This has transformed my skin. Texture has improved and hyperpigmentation from past acne has diminished almost completely. It does need to be slowly introduced into your routine because it tingles/stings initially and will likely cause temporary redness.
    Great acid toner
    I find the Glycolic Acid 7% strong, but my skin tolerates it and I've never had any problems with sensitivity after using this. I would re-purchase.
    Shall I just say pixi glow tonic?
    It’s so good. It is definitely stronger and less plumping than it’s very famous counterpart which it is clearly not based on one bit. I reach for it more often than the Other toner and it works very hard, but can aggravate any sore skin (for example, a spot that’s had a flannel cleanse or a sore nose that’s been rubbed too much during a cold). It definitely needs lots of hydration over the top. Every time I use the Other toner I remember how much I like it in contrast, but I still use this one more often.
    Not at all for me
    I am a regular user of acids but this has resulted in every product applied after it burning like crazy as well as red skin going on for days after I stopped using it. I am able to use it on my body without any problems but I would not put it on my face again I first thought the reaction came because of a combination of products but I have isolated the products use when I first used it and it is the only thing I have a reaction to.
