About Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution is a water-based toner with glycolic acid and botanical extracts.
Why It’s Special
This treatment gently exfoliates the skin to restore a clear, radiant appearance. It improves the look of uneven tone and texture with regular use.
- Glycolic acid: an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the surface of the skin
- Tasmanian Pepperberry: a botanical extract that reduces the irritation associated with acid use
- Aloe Vera and ginseng: botanical extracts with soothing and radiance-boosting benefits
How to Use
At night after cleansing, saturate a cotton pad and sweep it across your face and neck. Avoid your eye area. This product should not be used on sensitive, peeling, or compromised skin.
Alpha hydroxy acids may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product.
- Size: 240 ml

Excellent Acid Toner
I started acid toning about a year ago using/trying PC and Pixi, which both worked fine but really wanted to have something that wasn't ingredient overload in an early routine step, had no fragrance yet still had a good low pH.
This glycolic acid at 7% is right on the money on all of those points, AND is a good price. The only downside is that I can't buy it in a nearby store like at Target (with the famous Pixi glow tonic). But considering that this is a lot more product with less cost, I think I can handle that shipping time offset.
One thing that may not be obvious about the product as you see in the pictures, is that when you get the package, it comes with a nozzle that replaces the metal cap. The cap is there for just safety during shipping. You replace it with the nozzle. The nozzle, tightly in place, then has a second component that you twist open so you can easily disperse the toner onto a cotton swatch or your hands in a much more controlled manner. It's way nicer than the simple "cap over a hole" that you normally get with 90% of other toner/acid packages. It's actually making me consider shopping online for more of these nozzle caps to put on all my bottles.98 found this helpful.Iain J. Jun 07, 2017
Everything Pixi's Glow Tonic should've been AND MORE.
This stuff is probably the least "ordinary" thing from The Ordinary line. I mean that it is not just a one note product. Not only do you get an absolutely fantastic amount of Glycolic Acid, a huge size and I have a particular affinity to the clinical nature of the packing, the product itself goes above and beyond. A mix of glycolic acid, aloe vera, ginseng, Tasmanian pepperberry, a whole heap of amino acids, and damask rose water. It exfoliates, calms, hydrates, brightens, and does not irritate. One of my top 5 products from the line, it's incredible. I think that this is a product that every body needs in their routine. It will target everything that you currently think is wrong with your skin. I will repurchase this forever.52 found this helpful.Karen R. May 12, 2017
After spending much of my youth scrubbing my skin off with apricot scrubs, I'm never looking back after using chemical exfoliators. I've been using this for about a month now, and I feel confident in saying that this is a great acid for the price! Sometimes I get a tingly sensation when applying it, but it never burns in a painful way. It feels much more gentler than using a scrub.
I personally like using this in the morning, even though Deciem says to use it at night. I use my retinols at night and do not want to mix two harsh products at the same time! So far I haven't experienced any bad reactions from using it in the AM, but I make sure to slather on 1/4 tsp of sunscreen every morning. I also like to wear a hat when it's extremely sunny outside. Please be careful with sun exposure when using this! I also like using it before masks to help the product penetrate more.
I know some people have reported that this has dried out their skin. I naturally have dry skin, but this product hasn't made me drier. My skin does feel a bit tight right after applying it, but I make sure to use hydrating serums and moisturizer to help combat that tightness. If anything, my skin looks brighter and I've had less breakouts since I started using it.
Also the nozzle it comes with is brilliant! I love how much control it gives me when I'm applying product to a cotton pad. It never causes me to spill too much product.
Is it my favorite acid? Unfortunately no, Paula's Choice always has a special place in my heart. I find PC to be more smoothing and easier to apply. I personally haven't used Pixi's glow tonic before, so I can't compare, but this product is pretty darn good. I can't believe the value for the amount of product you get. This is one best affordable acid I have tried and recommend it to anyone who is new to acids!43 found this helpful.Shelly F. May 05, 2017
I HAVE SUPER SENSITIVE SKIN & THIS DOESN'T BOTHER ME
Both my daughter & I are using this & just love it. I have super sensitive skin which usually reacts to anything new I put on my face. Not this or any of The Ordinal products sent to me. I like this toner because I still can see dirt that was leftover from my cleanser on the cotton pad. An a amazing product to add to your skin care regimen. Plus you can't go wrong with the price & you get so, so much product! :)36 found this helpful.Ayana H. May 17, 2017
I love it
I love this toner. It does its job. I love that it's gentle and has no scent. I credit it for getting rid of what I thought was a bump behind my ear when one day recently it 'burst'. It was a raised black head all the time. I credit me using this toner all down my neck (which I always do) as the cause for it bursting. I was amazed. I was quoted US$150 to have it removed and tested by a dermatologist. Not knowing all this time it was a simple blackhead.32 found this helpful.Adriana M. Apr 09, 2017
Gentle yet affective
Purchased quite a few products from The Ordinary. It's been a week since I started using them, although I really wasn't sure which ones to use in conjunction with others I went ahead and purchased most of the line that beautylish has to offer. Most of them are serums for brightening and anti aging and of course the glycolic toner. I've created quite a cocktail morning and evening not knowing what to expect with using all 12 products that I bought. I'm exited to share that my skin already feels smoother and plumper. I was afraid that I was going to get a reaction of redness from the Vitamin C Suspension as it tingled for a while but it's all been great. Products purchased: Buffet, HAB5, AGsolution12%, Matrixyl HA, Advanced Retinol, Lactic Acid 10%, Magnesium AscrobylPhosphate 10%, Azelaic Acid 10%, Vitamin C Suspension and the Glycolic toner. These are working great together at least for me and who knows I might not need all of these but I wanted it all ! Thanks Beautylish for making these great products available to us!19 found this helpful.Nicole S. May 12, 2017
I would love to give this product a proper review. I can not get the cap off! Myself, and several of my friends have been trying to get into this bottle. The only way I'm going to get into it is to break the bottle some how.
This is actually my second bottle. The first bottle is the same. I bought it again because I thought the cap being so tight was a fluke. Now I have 2 bottles sitting that I can not use. Its annoying. There is no reason for the caps to be THAT tight.18 found this helpful.Hannah C. Feb 09, 2018
I love this toner
I've been using this toner every other day since I recieved it a month ago. I have seen a clear improvement in my hyperpigmentation and skin texture. I occasionally use the AHA 30% and BHA 2% treatment (weekly/ every 2 weeks when not having breakouts), but between uses this has made a lot of difference to my skin. I suffered from acne as a teenager, but after finishing accutane my skin has been "spotless"- that is excluding my post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This toner really adressed that- my skin has been smooth and even toned, and no doubt I will be purchasing this for as long as its in stock. If i use it on a cotton pad after cleansing, i can see how much dirt my cleansing left! In the past I used the Pixi glow tonic and didnt see the results I wanted to from it (I also suffered a slight allergic reaction due to the fragrance) this is much cheaper and well worth the money.9 found this helpful.
