The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + Hyaluronic Acid 2%

  • Description & Features

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + Hyaluronic Acid 2% is a mild Lactic Acid superficial peeling formulation.  Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin.  This 5% formulation offers very mild exfoliation and is supported with purified Tasmanian Pepperberry, which can help to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation.

Directions:  Apply once per day, ideally in the PM.  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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good price I was excited to try this product, and started to use it in November. I appreciated that this product was gentle, (the percentages of acids didn't irritate my skin), but I haven't seen a difference in my skin since using it. Maybe I need a stronger concentration, I'm not sure. For someone with quite sensitive skin this would be a good acid to start with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product! I bought this product a few weeks ago and after a few uses, have already noticed good results. My skin is clearer, glowing, and brown spots are fading. So glad I bought this. It will be a main staple in my beauty kit. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Esthetician Approved I use the 5% solution in the summer and 10% in winter. My skin is incredibly dry and this is my favourite lactic acid serum. A lot of The Ordinary products sacrifice a nice feel for potency and price (which I'm personally fine with) but this one feels light and absorbs quickly. I would use it on my clients. Remember to wear sunscreen !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special... I think this is a perfectly fine product, but, honestly, not as effective for me at clarifying/toning as a simple apple cider vinegar toner. Won't be purchasing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love HA, it makes skin look so glowy immediately after application, and the LA really helps smooth and take off dead skin. my favourite ordinary product!
