The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Exfoliating Tone is an effective AHA exfoliant that sweeps away dead skin cells to reveal brighter, fresher skin. Formulated to minimise irritation. Great for all skin types, The Ordinary Toner will banish dull skin to leave you fresh-faced and fabulous.

Why you need it

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution exfoliates and conditions skin, restoring clarity, brightness and radiance. The hero ingredient is Glycolic Acid, a naturally-derived Alpha-Hydroxy Acid that breaks down the bonds that hold dead skin cells to the skin's surface, causing dullness and potentially clogging pores. It boosts skin cell renewal, helps to refine the appearance of pores and even reduces the look of fine lines.

The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution is specially formulated to minimise irritation with extracts of Tasmanian Pepperberry and Aloe Vera to soothe skin, while Ginseng helps to tone and brighten. A range of Amino Acids deliver anti-oxidant benefits and condition skin. Great for all skin types, The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution will banish dull skin to leave you fresh-faced and fabulous!
