    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

    Disappointed

    This is the only The ordinary product that has disappointed me. It really aggravated my skin and caused a nasty rash. The great thing about buying from the ordinary direct though is they refund you for any products that don’t suit you . This is the only one I have ever returned. I know others love this so don’t write it off if you wish to try but do your research and if you have sensitive skin you may want to skip.

    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.
