PERFECT FOR: Acne prone skin

”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 fine

I used this because of its contents that might help my pimples, but as I use it I dont think there is any difference or improvement for my skin. So I prefer choose that product that is “hiyang” for you rather than trying the expensive ones. I do not recommend this one. Sorry.

Very effective

I've been using this for a month and I can see a significant result both in my face and back. It doesn't really treat my oily skin but it does help in preventing new pimples. It also helps in subsiding the swelling of existing pimples. It feels tacky at first but it absorbs really well into the skin.

Really helps in clearing out your skin. I usually apply a small amount on problem areas but also apply it all over my face to help get rid of smaller acne scars and heal the skin overall. I apply it every night when needed and see improvement within a few days.

Holy Grail!

I was skeptical about using The Ordinary's products. I did not understand what any of their products were for but then I got intrigued when my tita recommended them to me. She has the same skin type as I do, and she also breaks out when using new products just as I do. I got curious and started reading about their products on their website and also on blogs. Salicylic acid is the best exfoliant for oily and acne-prone skin, and is best paired with niacinamide. I used niacinamide first (I asked for a sample from my tita and she gave me the last few drops from her bottle which lasted me 3 days). I really loved it and so I bought a full bottle of this Salicylic acid since I needed an acne treatment at the time I bought this. I have honestly used this for 2 weeks and, I tell you, I have not had much acne since I started using it. Although I did purge a bit for a week, but after that, it was smooth sailing. I do have a pimple or two sometimes but they easily go awat because of this product. I would totally recommend this to my fellow oily, acne-prone skin sisters!

HG Acne buster!!!

There are countless products in the beauty industry that claim to treat acne, pimples, blackheads and other skin-related issues. One of them is The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% solution which was recommended to me by my friend. I’ve been using it for about two months and I wanted to share my review. I’ve being using the acid nearly every day for about two months and I have really seen a difference. The blackheads that plagued my face for so long are nearly gone and my face has a more even tone now. Also, the bumps and pimples have really reduced and my face is much smoother! Will definitely buy again once mine runs out.

Great at first

I had a breakout and I used this twice a day. I know it should purge my skin but pimples appear on places I never had. I stopped using this and I stopped having new pimples. Idk why it doesn't work for me and it's kind of frustrating because I thought this would help me.
