Description

Helps treat: Fine lines, uneven tone and texture

Feels like: A lightweight, exfoliating serum

Recommended for: This moderate-intensity serum exfoliates and hydrates and is suitable for sensitive skin

Correct uneven skin tones with The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%, an exfoliating lightweight serum that works to minimise uneven texture through the help of Tasmanian pepperberry.

In addition, purified Tasmanian pepperberry works to reduce signs of sensitivity and inflammation commonly associated with exfoliation. The ingredient helps to reduce the irritation often caused by acid use. Because it is a derivative of plant origin, it can vary in colour on a seasonal basis.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% helps to promote cell regeneration and reduce the appearance of pigmentation to improve the overall look and feel of the skin’s texture. This formula is free from oil, silicone and alcohol, and is also vegan and cruelty-free.

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% uses seasonal Tasmanian pepperberry to help minimise irritation and reduce textural irregularities in the complexion.
Key Benefits:
  • Gently exfoliates the skin
  • Formulated with Tasmanian pepperberry to help reduce inflammation
  • Nourishing ingredients work to reduce irritation associated with acid use
  • Free from oil, silicone and alcohol

Lactic Acid 5% + HA is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I’m not one for fragrance in products but most products I use smell just fine without any. This absolutely stinks and I really mean it’s awful, it’s also a very sticky consistency which I don’t like and I don’t feel I can attest to any proper results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brighter looking skin! I love this serum this was one my earliest brightening serums I bought! 5% lactic acid is a great start to brighter more even tone skin. This formula is very mild I used it every evening with my usual skincare routine, I used spf following day to avoid any sensitivity, but was so mild I didn’t really have an issue, this serum makes my skin brighter and more even.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it I really like this product it is reasonably priced and a good exfoliating acid. Lactic acid in particular is gentle if you have sensitive skin and with the addition of hyaluronic acid it makes sure you are hydrating your skin also. I am glad to see this stocked on SpaceNK as it is often out of stock elsewhere

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very gentle This is a pleasant product, that has a lightly exfoliating effect: the serum goes on easily, and sinks in well without being sticky. As with most of the brand's products, you need to persist to see a difference - but once you have seen it, you will keep noticing improvements. If you have less sensitive skin, or are already accustomed to acids, go for the 10% version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great serum When I started using exfoliangs got this 5% lactic version. It is such a nice serum, no fragrance, it is very light and non sticky. I applied it on dry skin and after about 10 minutes I applied a moisturizer. Great serum overall for beginners especially. Lactic acid is so gentle.
