I love The Ordinary. TO Squalane Oil is an amazing product. However, if you have fungal acne/sensitive skin do not use this product. You are not purging but feeding your fungal acne. It took me almost to months of usage to figure that out so don't commit that mistake as I did.

I am a huge fan of The Ordinary because their serums work amazing on my face. I bought this toner hoping that it will give me a good result just like the rest of their products BUT NO, after applying it last night, white small puss started appearing on my face. I know this is the culprit since it's the only product that was added to my routine that night. I stopped using it and saw the white puss died down and did not became an acne. SO, if you have an acne-prone skin. Don't buy this. If you want to start using acid to have a soft skin texture, try Mandelic Acid first. It has a larger molecule and therefore penetrates the skin slowly than other AHAs. The Ordinary's Mandelic Acid works great for us acne sufferers.

It was the first acid exfoliator that i tried, but didnt work for me.
After putting on immidiately felt stinging after 5 minutes had to wash it off, couldnt take it anymore.
Got very irritated skin afterwards, salicidyc acid worked much better for me
