The ordinary glycolic acid does this works??

The ordinary glycolic acid does this works??

Urooba
Aug 01, 2019

Assalam Alaikum,

Today's post is #review of The Ordinary glycolic acid 7% toning solution.
Glycolic acid belongs to the family of AHA's, it is water-soluble so works on the top layer of skin, it is considered better for people with dry skin. glycolic acid is an excellent chemical exfoliant too.
Now that we know what glycolic acid is and why this product appeals to so many people lets discuss how I felt about the product itself.

What the product claims:

  1. water-free

  2. alcohol-free

  3. oil-free

  4. silicone-free

  5. nut-free

  6. vegan

  7. gluten-free

  8. cruelty-free

INGREDIENTS

Aqua (Water), Glycolic Acid, Rosa damascena flower water, Centaurea cyanus flower water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Triethanolamine, Aminomethyl Propanol, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Tasmannia Lanceolata Fruit/Leaf Extract, Aspartic Acid, Alanine, Glycine, Serine, Valine, Isoleucine, Proline, Threonine, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Glutamic Acid, Arginine, PCA, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose, Urea, Hexyl Nicotinate, Dextrin, Citric Acid, Polysorbate 20, Gellan Gum, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Sodium Chloride, Hexylene Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol.

What I think:

PH OF THE PRODUCT:

3.5-3.6

HOW DID IT FEEL ON THE SKIN

When the solution first came in contact with my skin, my skin felt warm and afterward, it had a tingling sensation for sometimes and then it was fine.

DID IT BURN YOUR SKIN

No.

DID IT EXFOLIATE THE SKIN

yes, it did, the first sign of exfoliation was the smooth skin I felt after using it, for the first time, I actually felt how new fresh skin feels like.

DO I HAVE TO REMOVE IT

No need to rinse it off, continue with your skincare as usual.

HOW MUCH TO USE

I spread it on a cotton pad and dab and sweep across my face leaving the eye area, the brand suggests to not keep the skin in contact with the product for a prolonged time.

CAN I USE IT EVERY DAY

The brand does say that it can be used every day for once. However, I would personally suggest that it should be used once or twice a week, preferably at night.

IS IT EFFECTIVE OR DESTRUCTIVE ON ACNE

Neither, it has no effect on acne what so ever.

SPF IS A MUST
you would need to use an SPF no matter what, not taking precaution can result in sunburn, hyperpigmentation.

WHO SHOULD NOT USE IT
people with sensitive skin, people who have damaged skin due to any reason especially people who use formula creams.

QUANTITY
240 ml.

PRICE
I bought it in 2520 from Aodour.

Hope you guys find this helpful.
