The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% (30ml) is a potent anti-oxidant treatment that will smooth & refine your skin's tone and texture whilst simultaneously protecting it from free radical damage. Alpha Lipoic Acid is found in every cell of the body; it fights against environmental damage whilst also renewing and rejuvenating the skin. The formulation is oil & silicone free and is also cruelty-free & vegan-friendly.

Directions of use:

  • Apply a few drops to the skin PM after using any toners or water-based products.
  • Daily use is not recommended - use 2 or 3 times weekly.
  • Not for use on sensitive skin.
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid is highly sensitive to sunlight so do not expose it to any direct sunlight. For this reason, we advise using at night only.

Not only is the price of The Ordinary products phenomenally good, the packaging is gorgeous too. Then there's the magic liquid itself. It's tricky for me to review the ALA in isolation, as I'm using the Peeling Masque, the Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane, and the Hyuralonic Acid 2% as well. But suffice it to say that in combination, they have turned my 50-something skin into early 40s radiance and I love, love love it!

After trying some of 'The Ordinary' products previously, I was excited to try this ALA after reading some positive reviews and doing my own research. This did not disappoint! As my skin is quite dry, I had to use about 5 drops as opposed to the recommended 2-3 but the bottle will still last me a long time and it is an absolute steal! Immediately after using the product, there was a slight tenderness to the skin but barely noticeable and within a couple of hours I could see a difference. I've now used the product about 4 times and my skin looks completely different - healthy and glowing instead of dry and porous. I use the product 3 times a week on an evening after cleaning and drying my face - I do not use any other products on my face before going to bed. Through the day, I just moisturise and apply my make-up like normal. For this price, you can't afford NOT to try it. I also now use their foundation and I am impressed. Definitely a brand worth purchasing!

Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% 30ml

I use this every other day as a serum on a night. It has an oily consistency which makes it greasy to apply however it is soaked into the skin very quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.
