    Veerry sting-y! But veerry effective!

    My skin has a love-hate relationship with this stuff. I personally love it, but I respect it lol. It stings. A lot. It gave me a reaction twice, but it does warn that it can cause redness and it stings. Use it SPARINGLY if you're not used to direct acids. Your skin will get used to it over time, but you're also not supposed to use it often and have to be careful to avoid using it with other products. The very first time I used it, when I woke up I stared at myself in the mirror. My skin was plump, smoother, radiant and tighter. It didn't look like me! For that reason I keep it around, even if I use it only for rare occasions to give my skin a break.

    Turn dark spots into bright spots quickly

    I would like to advise anyone who is interested in the ordinary alpha lipoic acid to go ahead and go for the gold. This product is amazing and works so quickly not to mention that the price range is enough to go ahead and. Snatch up three four five of these lineup ahead of time as I have done Since I've been using this product my dark spots as I am 52 older woman who used to Sun worship have dramatically and quite quickly turned from dark to a very pale light brown spots. The more I use it the lighter those spots. It has a nice little sting to it but nothing too irritating. Itkind of lets me know that it is working the proof is in the pudding ladies grab this one up in multitude you will love the instant results you can see them right away after usage.

    It works!

    This is strong but it works. Don't use too much, my skin tolerates pretty much everything I throw at it but I know when I've applied too much of this. It tingles on most uses, stings if I went overboard. Good exfoliation if you only use it twice a week

    Not too bad so far

    I've heard great reviews about this product and decided to give it a try. This stuff is potent so be sure to follow the instructions and don't use too much each time. I have sensitive skin and it really stung the first time I used it. My face felt warm after a while as well but it'll subside after 10 minutes or so. Make sure you don't have cuts on your face or else this would burn! I feel like this did improve on the texture of my skin. I'm not so sure about the anti-aging component but I do feel like I wake up with a brighter complexion after using it. Will continue to use and see if there are improving results.

    Best stuff

    Strong but its really well on my skin. Would never go back to buy any other antioxidants. Highly recommend to anybody who is looking for an antioxidant to use at night.

    Anti-Aging Delight

    Wanted to try a new product and I found this anti aging product.
    Its full strength and to be used with my nightly routine. I found it tingled quite a bit but it left no marks on my face. Will continue using it as I like all of the Ordinary products

    My favourite new anti ager!!

    Another new addition to my regimen of The Ordinary products, Alpha Lipoic Acid seems to be making a huge difference in my skin after only using it a few weeks. I am quite sure that the entire regimen that I'm using is the secret to my overall skin health but I have found this particular acid to be so helpful with blotchiness, scarring and even puffiness. I only use it 3 nights a week because it is pretty strong and I use Retinol on the other 4 nights. It does sting a little bit and makes my skin feel warm and tingly but that is short lived.
