A daily glycolic acid toner that smooths skin texture, evens tone, and enhances luminosity.
Glycolic Acid 7% Exfoliating Toner is an exfoliator that significantly smoothes skin texture and promotes the appearance of a more even skin tone, as well as more luminous skin, with regular use. It also reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The water-based toner format is suited to daily use.
It contains a 7% concentration of Glycolic acid - a well-studied alpha-hydroxy acid - and a plant-derived Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative, which varies in colour seasonally, and which may cause an apparent colour variation in the formula from time to time.
- Targets: Signs of Aging, Dullness, Textural Irregularities, Uneven Skin Tone
- Suited to: All Skin Types
- Format: Water-based toner
This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to the additional sun protection notes and other warnings in the provided directions.
The pH of this formula is approximately 3.6. Glycolic Acid has a pKa of 3.6 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa describes the acidity of a molecule. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation.

Returns & Exchanges
Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (email@example.com) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

Excellent pour ma peau
Je sens que ma peau est nettoyée en profondeur. Mes pores semblent plus petits, ma peau est plus lisse après peu de temps d'utilisation. **Attention** Ne pas utiliser sur une peau irritée car ça ne rehydrate pas mais irrite d'avantage
Best toner I’ve ever tried.
I love this toner. It’s become a must have. Since I’ve started using this toner almost a month ago I’ve noticed big improvements on my skin. My pores look smaller, my skin looks cleaner, smoother and brighter. I’ve even gotten comments about it from my partner. Also, let’s not forget the amazing prices of The Ordinary which makes it so affordable. I would recommend it 100% to friends and family without hesitation.
Incredibly effective, insanely affordable!
Been using this for years, it was one of my first Ordinary products. Size is generous, price is a steal, toner is gentle (no stinging, irritation, redness) enough for my face, neck and anywhere on body to help with oil, scars, blemishes, ingrowns, and general clarifying. Love it, and for the price everyone should have one at their sink!
I'm 45 and on my 3rd bottle
It makes my skin feel calm and smooth when I smooth this on after cleaning. I think my pores have become a bit smaller, but it's hard to tell. Because it's ph balanced, it doesn't sting or dry my skin out. I read somewhere that you can use this in between shower days before re-applying deodorant (I use a natural salt based roll on and this trick works like a charm to reduce bacteria before re-applicaiotn of deodorant. it's an 'off-market' trick that works wonders esp during the long days of covid...)
