PERFECT FOR: Acne prone skin

October 14, 2017
”I started purchasing products from Ordinary the moment I was made aware of you guys, thus far I have not been disappointed once. With that said I have a 14 yo son with acne prone skin on his forehead, back and chest…poor thing. Well the Salicylic Acid 2% has made 200% difference. The old spots and blemishes began to fade immediately and no new breakouts. This with only 4-5 uses at night. I’m so excited for him as i watch his confidence peak through his shy demeanor all be cause of you. I know this appears a bit emotional for a product but; nothing has worked for this handsome, shy, teen of mine, who if he knew i was writing this would blow a gasket. Again many thanks for the range of products, the regimen suggestions and price point. I cant wait to make my next purchase waiting on Retinol 2%!”

”A few weeks ago I’d have given it a lower rating because the 15ml size just wasn’t worth it for me, but now it comes in bigger bottles I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never experienced sensitivity or irritation, and I saw a visible improvement after less than a week of using it once a day. I now use it morning and night unless I’m using another acid and the difference is extraordinary. In conjunction with the 30%AHA+2%BHA peel it’s completely transformed my skin. This sounds like I was paid to write it but honestly, I’ve had terrible skin for nearly 15 years, and these products have turned it around. I couldn’t be happier.”

Just wow

I had been using it for a month now, and it's a wow for me. At first, akala ko hindi magiging effective kasi hndi naman nawawala ung nga pimples ko na may cyst. I gave it time to take effect at hindi ako nagsisi sa naging resulta. Medyo ingat lang, ksi kayang magdry ng sobra ung part na lalagyan mo. Mismong pimples lang nilalagyan ko hanggang sa magdry out, titigilan ko na lagyan dun. Hindi overnight ang result pero lung ikukumpara ko sa naging muka ko a month ago, sobrang lagi ng changes.

Almost A Life Saver

I was having a really bad breakout around my jawline and cheeks, at that time I was really considering to go back to my dermatologist but it costs so much just for one treatment, so as I was searching for a holy grail to save my skin, I stumbled upon this product and immediately bought it because of the good reviews I’ve read. It really did saved my skin but it didn’t do very much, like getting it pristine-clean. It did lighten my scars and after two nights and two days of using it on a fresh pimple, they disappeared with the help of COXRS’ Salicylic Acid face wash. A tip: A little goes a really long way! Just use like 3 small drop for the whole face, like, directly on your pimple or one for your cheek, one for the other and one for the forehead.

My pores are significantly smaller!

I am now on my second bottle and I must say that this has done wonders for my heavily congested pores. 😭 I use this everyday in conjunction with the niacinamide serum and they work excellently well together! This is particularly useful after using clay masks and/or after pricking some pimples.

Waaah the best!

Ive been using this with the Niacinamide solution for 2 weeks now, (this and sunscreen in the morning and the other at night), and can I just say how much it improved my skin?? Its so good that I stopped breaking out. I have really bad combination of oily-dry skin, and it really works well! Would super recommend! ♥️

Effective on stubborn cystic acne!

I’ve been searching for so long for a good spot treatment for my cystic acne. Nothing seems to work, so I was hesitant to buy this product. I am so glad I made this purchase! It shrinks my stubborn acne overnight. I used to have cystic acne that would last for a week or two. But now it wouldn’t go beyond that anymore. I’m just concerned with the foaming when I apply it on my face. But other than that, I totally love this product! Will purchase again :-)

Holy grail for acne prone skin!!!!

I've had problems with acne since college days. Tried dozens of products (even consulted a dermatologist) but none, absolutely NONE worked for me. Thank goodness I found this (among other the ordinary products) and it has been a life changing experience. It dries out my pimples quickly and is a perfect pair of Niacinamide that I use. ❤ I still have pimples now and then, no thanks to hormones, but I no longer have to suffer for them longer than necessary! THANK YOU THE ORDINARY!!!!!
