The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% Superficial Peeling Formulation 30ml

Offering gentle exfoliation – with a weaker concentration than The Ordinary’s {Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%} – uneven skin tone and textual irregularities are top of the target list for this lightweight serum. Formulated with lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid that offers exquisite exfoliation) and Tasmanian pepperberry (to reduce signs of inflammation), this trusty treatment stimulates cell regeneration to reduce pigmentation and improve overall skin texture.

Offering gentle – yet extraordinary – exfoliation with lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) this lightweight serum stimulates cell regeneration to reduce pigmentation, diminish acne scars and age spots and improve overall skin texture. Don’t be perturbed by the irritation often associated with acid use – The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% contains purified Tasmanian pepperberry to reduce signs of inflammation and soothe the sensitivity sometimes caused by exfoliation. Also enhanced with heroic hydrating ingredient hyaluronic acid, this super-charged serum strengthens the lipid barrier to improve the skin’s ability to attract and retain moisture.

Apply once per day, ideally in the evening. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.)

Contraindications: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Direction

Younger looking skin

I've been using this twice daily, generously, on face and neck. It's softened the wrinkles so that they aren't as pronounced. It leaves my skin very soft and doesn't cause any irritation whatsoever, and I have sensitive skin. I'm really impressed with this product! At the price of it, you don't mind using it generously. It also leaves my skin feeling 'plump' and healthy, not irritated or dry, I feel like I've had a mini-face lift.

Love it

I was afraid to try it since my skin is supersensitive but its not irritating for sensitive skin. Of course first two times, skin feels little overwhelmed but that's the part of process. Would recommend to everyone with sensitive skin to give a try if they are looking for gentle yet effective exfoliator.

Good exfoliator

I have dry, sensitive skin and so far this product has worked well for me. I haven't had a negative reaction and it makes my skin look a little brighter after application. However, I haven't noticed any miraculous changes in general.

Really gentle exfoliator

I love this, it's really gentle with the added benefit of HA. It really plumps your skin too and leaves you with an amazing glow. I love that this is a really gentle exfoliator, with lactic acid being a more gentle AHA and a lower percentage, as there aren't enough gentle exfoliation products and too many really strong peels everywhere!

How does this work so well

I genuinely don't understand. I've always described my skin as 'stubborn'. It never responds to new products so quickly. But even after waking up from the first application of this, my skin had been visibly smoother, clearer, plumper, and just feels good. I'm in awe. I've been using 3 other The Ordinary products for almost 3 months with no big changes but only used the Lactid Acid 5% twice and it's my favourite.

Love it

Love this product so much. I have sensitive spot prone skin and when I put this on at night in the morning my skin is clear, softer with a radiant glow. It doesn't cause any irritation at all. So far it hasn't helped my hyperpigmentation/acne scars but I'm hoping with some long term use it will help.

Glow glow glow...

I keep coming back to this one. I find the 5% strength *just* right for use no matter how my skin’s feeling. It’s never irritating, yet always delivers the softest, glossiest baby smooth skin the next morning. It’s cult.

Perfect bottle of glow

I love this acid. It's not too strong for my sensitive skin, but it still does the job of smoothing out texture and making me glow. I use it 2-3 times a week, and it seems to be plenty to keep my mid-30's skin healthy and exfoliated.
