The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Review

The Ordinary have been on my radar for a while. The brand have a refreshing attitude towards products; no unnecessary packaging or additives. Instead they focus on effective, results driven ingredients.

I picked up The Ordinary  AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution £6.30 from the Boxpark Shoreditch  and have been testing it out, here’s what I think of the product.

What The Ordinary Say About The Product

“Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin’s topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use.”

The Packaging

The packaging is minimal and clinical. I love that it is simple and the bottles look like they have come straight out of a laboratory.

The Product

The first time I tried The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution I was hesitant to apply too much and took it off before 10 minutes as I wanted to check how my skin would react.

I had no adverse reactions and since then have been braver. It does tingle a bit upon application but this fades after about 30 seconds. The product is a red liquid and looks a bit creepy (think of Kim Kardashian’s Vampire facial) but it is definitely effective.

8I have noticed that my pores are less congested after using this peel and it is a go-to for a quick fix when my skin is looking a bit rubbish!

When I went out for dinner at the weekend one of my friends said my skin looked flawless and asked what I had on my face. I was wearing makeup but I think that having a good skincare routine helps your makeup to look more natural.

Final Thoughts

The Ordinary have delivered a product that really works and for £6.30! It goes to show that you don’t have to spend a fortune for good quality products. I already have a few others and will definitely be adding to them. I have also got my Nan and sister using some of  their other products and they are loving them too!

Note: This formula contains a very high concentration of free acids. The Ordinary recommend use only if you are an experienced user of acid exfoliation and your skin is not sensitive.
