The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% REVIEW

The Ordinary are really creating a buzz right now with their high tech, yet highly affordable skincare range. Owned by Deciem, The Ordinary have quickly become a brand I have incorporated into my skincare routine.

The Ordinary's 10% Lactic Acid treatment is a product that has changed my skin. I love AHA/BHA treatments, I use them regularly in my skincare routine to help tackle issues such as congestion and blackheads. The Ordinary Lactic Acid treatment is easily one of the most effective skincare items I have ever used.

For £6 you can completely transform your skin. If you struggle with texture, whether that is in the form of scaring, congestion, blackheads etc you need to try this.

Lactic acid is one of the AHA's I have not had much experience with, I am more familiar with salicylic and glycolic acids but honestly, what a difference this had made.

I have rather oily skin, so it is easy for my skin to become congested and I regularly struggle with blackheads on my nose, as well as a very fine "gritty" feeling on my chin, which is very, very stubborn and takes a lot to remove. I have other products targeted for congestion that I do love, however, nothing has made a difference as much as The Ordinary lactic acid treatment has.

Within a couple days, the stubborn congestion on my chin had gone. My skin felt completely smooth, as well as far more supple to the touch. Congestion and texture caused by blackheads on my nose was also gone. I honestly couldn't believe the difference.

Lactic acid comes from milk and is one of the more gentle AHA's (compared to glycolic acid) yet is still very effective. This makes it a great option for someone with a more sensitive skin type who may find other AHA's too harsh. There is even a more mild formula, which contains 5% Lactic Acid which you could start off with if you are a bit hesitant. 

As always with AHA's, please wear SPF after use as they do make your skin more sensitive to sun damage.

I could sit here and write pages and pages about how great this product is but really all I want to write is "GO AND TRY IT IMMEDIATELY!" I promise you will see a huge difference. I even have started using it where I get a lot of texture from shaving on my legs and again, it has completely cleared it up without drying out my skin or being too harsh.

Have you tried anything from The Ordinary? Let me know in the comments below!
