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

    The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Reviews

    Works well. Slight tingling at first but nothing unbearable. I have sensitive skin and it worked well with me.
    This is seriously holy grail among other products! it does its magic, it´s unbelievable! Listen, i have dry and sensitive skin and the first minute it always annoys me and i´m fighting to not wash it, but after that minute it stops.I wash it after 8 minutes, my skin is immediately radiant, nourished, small wrinkles look like they are about to disappear. My skin the next morning is worth magazine article ,,how to get glowy skin" I wish I could use more often haha, I only use once a week due to irritation at the beginning. Seriously, best thing ever!
    Great product
    I have really sensitive skin and its working great for my complexion. Just keep in mind to use it only once a week. Twice is way too much for sensitive skin.
    This is probably the best Ordinary product I've tried so far! No-nonsense ingredients and a super nice and soft feeling upon removal. Not a miracle product but really nice to have for the occasional (or regular) acid kick. Also, I certainly leave it on longer than 8 minutes (I am quite acid-tolerant though, proceed at your own pace). Will certainly buy again!
    Holy Grail
    I’ve been using this product for the past 2 months and I’m super impressed! My skin looks brighter and more glowy and the texture of my skin has reduced drastically. I can’t get enough of this product.❤️
    Wonderful, thank you so much.
    Such an amazing product at this price point! Works phenomenally well by removing dead skin and makes the surface of your skin so smooth. Must try!
    Improvement in first uses
    When I purchased this product I was scared that it may cause a reaction, but then when I tried it, it was amazing. I have only used it twice but I can already see the improvement on my skin.
    Get ready for a red face!
    So, I knew this product was red, but the first time I applied it and looked at myself in the mirror, I was a bit horrified lol. I've never put on anything red for skin care....but after 10 minutes and a wash, my skin felt smooth. I use glycolic acid products quite a lot, so my skin is used to acids and I had no bad reaction from this product so far. As for further results, I will need to keep using it for a bit longer, but so far so good, I am happy with it :)
    Beyond my expectations
    I was very curious if this product is as good as everyone saying. And I’m glad I ordered it. My skin I so glowing and soft. My acne scars are lighter and I don’t have any new breakouts on my face.
    Works pretty well
    Only having used a couple of times inline with my other products it seems to be working pretty well.
    I've used many different face treatments including glyconic acid and had quite a lot of derma-roller sessions and then came across this product and received it yersterday and couldn't wait to use it. I've got uneven texture under my eyes below where eye bags would be and the glyconic acid and dermaroller didnt do much to improve this area but i was amazed at the difference after just one application of this, the area had smoother texture and my face looked better and plumper slightly tightened without feeling tight. I had a compliment when out today and was told my face looked radiant and I've never been told that before. I also used it on the back of my hands which has a bit of crepeness and its made a difference. I wont waste my money on any other treatment now and will make sure I've always got a supply of this brilliant product.
    Love it
    I really like it, it tingles a bit, especially around any problem areas, but it works amazingly! Smoother and softer skin, dries out any break outs i might get. But do not use it on damaged skin, it will burn. I will definitely repurchase!
    I can say this is one of my favourites in The Ordinary skincare range. I've just used it twice and I can definitely say it's by far the best skincare product I've ever used. Big thumbs up for this peeling solution.
    Great results
    This peel is amazing! I use it once a week, and wake up to a much improved complexion - glowing skin, less congestion and a much smoother complexion. Who knew you could get such great results at this price tag? During use I feel a little heat in my face, but nothing more. There's some redness after, so definitely a night-time product!
    Хороший пилинг *** Good peel
    Аромат фруктовый приятный. Не жжёт при нанесении. В первый раз когда будете им пользоваться, лучше минут 5 подержать, не больше. И если Вы себя плохо чувствуете (температура, насморк, кашель), то лучше этим пилингом пока не пользоваться. Подождать пока выздоровите. ***Has a pleasant fruity aroma. Does not burn when applied. The first time you use it, it’s better to leave on for 5 minutes, no more. And if you feel unwell (fever, runny nose, cough), then it is better not to use this peel, wait until you get well.
    I have pretty sensitive skin but I did not have a bad reaction to this product. It does tingle a little and there's some redness afterwards, but my skin starts glowing after all of that passes. The next morning my face is smooth and my hyper-pigmentation is slowly becoming lighter.
    Helping my acne scarring
    I have had problems with my skin for over 14 years. I have acne scars and I am constantly looking how to improve the texture, without getting the laser treatment. This is doing a great job for my skin. Would definitely buy it again :)
    Quick and cheap way to glow
    I was using Drunk Elephant Baby facial before a friend of mine suggested I should use The Ordinary peel. I was sceptical because I am very happy with DE products' results. But I gave it a try, and now I'm hooked. After the first time using it at night before bed and marula oil, my face was glowing the next morning. The quality/price ratio can not be compared to any similar peels I've tried so far. Highly recommend.
    Peeling solution
    This is a super hit product from The Ordinary. My 2nd bottle. Love this product & will purchase more. Highly recommend!
    Excellent results and great price!
    This product is amazing and it leaves the skin looking bright and fresh. I’ve purchased a few ordinary products and I’ve not been disappointed with any. Highly recommended for any age, especially the more mature skin.
    I never leave reviews but honestly the ordinary products are amazing, after using this for just under 6 weeks I can say I’m truly amazed at the results. My skin has cleared from breakouts and looks so radiant. I use this along with other products from the ordinary such as Buffet , Lactic Acid and a few others. must buy.
    Nice product.
    A must have for mature skin types, just 10 minutes once a week and that's it, better than any other mask.
    It actually works ...
    Brilliant for skin with acne, my face is so so soft and smooth after every treatment, if you have thicker skin leaving it on for ten minutes does the trick, more sensitive skin will probably be fine with five minutes. Been using it for 3 weeks now religiously every week and my skin has never looked so radiant, truly. MUST BUY :)
    Still new but love it
    I’ve been using it since I received it last Nov. 26, 2x a week. Every time I use it, I feel a little tingling sensation on my skin but it’s not that much because I’ve tried way more harsh chemicals than this. So it’s nothing I can’t handle. After every wash, my face feels so smooth and my sensitive, acne prone skin really loves it. I thought it would aggravate my acne but it didn’t (knock on wood). LoL. Will definitely buy it again.
    Super product
    My skin has a noticeable glow to it. My texture has improved greatly and my stubborn acne pigmentation has reduced drastically. I’m going to use this product forever.
    Absolutely love this product, 10 minutes on the face and it makes your face feel smooth, tight and the glow is REAL. The ordinary is just incredible ❤️
    Amazing is a small word to describe how amazing this product is. It tingles a little but clears the skin like magic. It's a mini facial in a bottle.
    Brilliant Product
    I am absolutely delighted with this product. I use it twice a week and I feel that it has made a huge difference to my complexion. I am in my 54 and my skin has never been so good as it is now. People I work with have been commenting on my complexion and asking me what I use for my face. Very happy customer.
    Smoother Texture
    I have had a stubborn texture for years, small bumps and uneven texture. Once you wash off the mask the results are not immediate, but a day or two later I noticed my small bumps drying up and falling off ! Even small spots dried up and just fell off. Now I'm left with almost no bumps and VERY smooth skin (just after 2 uses). Would definitely recommend to anybody with the same skin problems.
    Very good!
    Me skin now looks much better! Thanks a lot!
    I swear to god this solution/magical potion is incredible. Instant results. Perfect if you travel a lot, hormonal, change of weather, etc. Top tip after cleansed face, swipe a light drop of acetone on a cotton pad before applying the AHA. Leave on for no more than 10mins and your good. I swear by it
    Not as good as I expected
    My skin was much smoother after use but didn't really diminish scars or marks as I expected it would.
    I expected no whiteheads
    I've been using this for 4 weeks. The texture of my skin has improved but I still have at least one whitehead around my jaw line every week.
    I have sensitive skin so I only use this product once a week for 10 minutes, makes such a huge difference! my skin is so soft and clean feeling afterwards. I use this product with Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and Salicylic Acid 2% Solution and it's fab at clearing up bad acne and scarring
    Helped with my Cystic Acne (PCOS)
    If you purchase anything from the Ordinary range. This is your number one product. This product has helped clear my skin in one week. Yes, it is a bit harsh on the skin but it is worth the "burning-tingling" is so worth it. BUT, keep an eye on your skin and listen to it as well. This is an acid-base product! I have fallen in love with this product and it will definitely be a staple in my skin regime.
    The Ordinary
    I want to buy again
    Best product I have used so far..
    Definitely a worth it product. Just leaves your skin glowing and brightening. Would definitely repurchase
    Very good
    Many good reviews. My face very soft after use this
    Good product.
    Very nice quality, 100% original product
    Still unsure
    First use, amazing! Second use, okay... The third use, extreme burning and itching?! I have no clue what’s changed or what it is, I used it once a week and I didn’t change any other part of my routine but something just didn’t agree on the third use. I’ve not used it for a few weeks so I will try it again soon
    Great Product
    Use this twice a week. Always leaves my skin soft, would recommend.
    The best!
    Genialny produkt za niewielką cenę :) "A brilliant product for a small price :)"
    Amazed at the Results Already
    I got this in the mail this morning and have just washed off the mask after a ten minute application and I’m in complete shock. I’ve struggled with hyperpigmentation around my mouth and forehead since I was little and even after just one use I can genuinely see a difference; my skin overall looks more even-toned and glowy and even my acne scars look a little lighter. As a teen I also have some textural issues with my skin especially under my lips but it’s so smooth now! I’m so impressed, I can’t wait to see the results after long term use.
    I ordered this product for peeling my face but unfortunately I couldn't leave it over my face even 30 seconds, it made my skin feel uncomfortable and I don't know why.
    Good service
    I’m impressed with all the process. Shipping very fast I received my parcel in 7 days.
    Excellent product.
    Excellent peeling mask. I use it twice a week and always have smoother skin after I wash off the mask. I also use it for my hands and feet and it softens my skin in both areas. Be sure to moisturise heavily after use and use adequate SPF. I will definitely reorder it. I’m highly impressed with the Ordinary products I have purchased. I’m also impressed with the Pixi Glow and AHA Gold. I use both. Thumbs up to Cult Beauty.
    This product is absolutely amazing! It makes my skin soft and clean.
    Best Peeling Solution!
    What's not to love about this miracle in a bottle?! I tried it earlier this year and I just finished my first bottle. I use this peeling solution weekly no more than 10 minutes to achieve dewy, clean and Acne-FREE face. I stopped going to get facial(s) due to this because my face turned out amazing with this! This is a strong acid meant for an advanced acid user, therefore if you are new to acid(s) do try with a milder acid first like Mandelic/ Lactic/ Glycolic Acid before trying this.
    Worth every penny
    I love this! It makes my skin's texture silky smooth after I cleansed it. Must have product for every human being who loves to take care of their skin.
    Worth buying
    I use it 1-2 times a week. It does a good job, and my skin is softer right after using. Despite the strong tingling, it doesn't irritate my skin. But, I wouldn't recommend it for sensitive skin.
    Best peeling product for acne prone skin
    I used it twice a week, it was amazing! My skin looks very dewy and smooth after washing it off. But I won't recommend you to try if you have sensitive skin.
    Love this product so much
    The best peeling mask!
    Clears pigmentation and smooths texture
    One of the most effective treatments I have used to speed up the process of clearing hyper-pigmentation. Have tried numerous acids and this product always impresses me.
    Worth the buck
    I have been through my first bottle and have ordered more. I use it along with glossier exfoliating liquid and I have noticed my scars are fading. I have slightly oily to combination skin and it does peel my skin so I do not skip my moisturizer to avoid looking flaky. I have been using it almost every day.
    I'm usually very skeptical about products. Tried this on a whim for the recommended 10 minutes. Pleasant effect but didn't change my skin much. Accidentally left it on for 20 minutes the next time ( playing with cat) and the next morning had much smoother skin. By smooth I mean deeper lines had massively reduced and finer ones disappeared. Worst side effect just tingly skin. It's a great product. Don't not recommend it just because a patch test was over sensitive. I'll continue to use it and have recommended it to 3 others:-) Hoping to have a go on the boyfriend and reduce some of his lines.
    Heavy duty!
    Wow this burns my skin! But in a good way. I only leave it on for 3/4 minutes and my skin feels extremely exfoliated and soft. I use it once every two weeks, that enough for me!
    In one word: Wow
    I am in love! I used it in the evening and when I woke up, my skin had this lovely glow and it looked so healthy. My skin is more even and the blemishes have decreased. This product is now my holy grail! But make sure to moisturize afterwards to balance your skin.
    Not as terrifying
    When I received the product I immediately thought of returning it because the thought of putting this blood red liquid called a 'peeling solution' on my face was horrifying. Added to that, I live in Barbados (tropical island, blazing hot sun 12 hours a day), and I know acids make your skin sensitive, so I thought, "It makes no sense for me to use this." But I couldn't send it back, so I tried it. Now, let me tell you about my face. All of the skin on my face is durable and not sensitive, except for one miserable patch on my right cheek. It's sensitive and hates manual exfoliation and things of that nature. But I followed the instructions on the box. I gently washed my face to get rid of the day's grime (I took this solution at 4 pm) waited for my skin to dry, and then I applied the product. There wasn't any burning or much stinging, just the feeling of pinpricks under my left ear. I then applied a moisturizing cream and skipped my usual routine. As for the result, my skin was smoother, softer and glowing. The texture is better.
    Break out
    I used this once on the clean skin, I had no spots just some blackheads. I applied this for the recommended amount of time and washed it off. My skin began to itch quite a lot and about two hours after washing it off my face was covered in loads of small, red spots. Took a week and a lot of retinol to clear it up. So definitely test this on a small patch of skin before covering your entire face with it.
    Not the best
    Not what I thought it would be, it hurt my face a bit harsh. I have sensitive skin so might work for people that don’t, it smells of chemicals a lot. I wouldn’t buy it again.
    Does what is promises
    The solution is quite strong but does not irritate the skin. I use this only once a week on my skin. With continued use, it has prevented blackheads and fades pigmentation.
    I have very rough skin and use acids regularly, but nothing has ever made my skin tingle the way that this did the first time I used it. It dries out my skin, even though I follow it up with night creme and face oil, and I haven't really noticed a huge difference. I've been using it twice a week and I can't really say that there has been a huge payoff.
    Thoroughly disappointed
    It did technically get rid of my larger spots but it felt like it was burning them out, it’s left my skin red raw and stinging (I did a patch test and there was no issue) it’s completely dried out my skin leaving it horribly flaky and sensitive, I have quite oily skin so this surprised me greatly. Do not recommend to anyone.
    Yes yes and yes
    This is fabulous - my skin felt so so smooth after it, also looked brighter. I felt a bit of the string but nothing drastic. Would definitely recommend.
    I really love this stuff. My skin looked so glowy and refreshed after using this. There was a slight tingle but it was nice at the same time.
    Great product
    I’ve had cystic and hormonal acne for the past few months. I’m 17 years old. Other products have helped decrease the size of my acne but this product has caused my scars to go. My skin feels so smooth and I usually have congested skin. After using the product, my blocked pores are easier to clean out. I don’t know if it’s just me but my skin feels tighter and pores appear to be smaller. Great product. It’s better for encouraging skin turnover and getting rid of scars. Exfoliation is key and this does it well.
    I’ve never used a peeling solution before so I was very unsure what to expect. I was also worried it would be too harsh for my sensitive skin. However, this product is brilliant. So far, I have used it twice and each time my skin had looked brighter and plumper. The pesky blackheads on my face are beginning to break down and I anticipate that after a few more uses, that they will be completely gone. Whilst there is a slight tingle on my skin from this product, it isn’t at all too harsh for my skin which I’m so pleased about. All in all, another brilliant, effective and inexpensive product from The Ordinary.
    Noticeable difference
    Love using this product once a week. It does tingle at first but my skin is so so soft afterwards!
    Suprisingly brightening
    I have very tolerant skin, it can handle a lot. if you have sensitive skin id try 8min, twice a week tops. I use this peeling solution about 4 times a week. I love using it after a shower. While your pores are nicely open. (just make sure your skin is completely dry). I never experience any redness afterwards, it's actually brightening!
    First Impression
    I have just used this for the first time. I found it fairly stingy and once I took it off (after 7 minutes) My cheeks looked quite heavy and were very red. I've heard great things about this and will continue to use it, but the first impression is not the best.
    Didn't work for me
    I've used this product few times considering the smell is so off putting but I've used it in my congested areas like T-zone. Where it tingles on my face, it leaves a red itchy texture on my cheeks so I've stopped using it. In all honesty, I've not seen any improvements with the ordinary products. If you have sensitive skin, do not purchase.
    Nice tingle but no noticeable difference
    I love the tingle when putting this on, but aside from my skin feeling very soft afterward, I don't actually notice a lot of difference. I am still going to continue using the rest of the product I have left but I probably won't repurchase.
    Game Changer
    This product is everything! I bought a bottle as soon as it came back in stock and haven't looked back. It does tingle a little bit when you first apply but stick with it, the results are amazing. My face has never felt so silky smooth and I even convinced my 50+ year old parents to try and they are now fans too.
    deep cleansing mask
    I am using acids for more than 5 years and my skin is used to them. I have not experienced any bad reactions at all. It purifies my skin very deeply. When I rinse it off, I do not see a big difference. But the next morning I woke up with a brighter and clearer skin. I hate the packaging though, it is not convenient to use. But as it is very inexpensive, I can not complain much.
    I love love love this product! I used this once in a week and it really helps me to reduce acne breakout and also dull skin.
    Leaves my skin soft dewy and glowing. It's a fantastic product and works effectively. I use it once or twice a week. Initially there was a wee bit of stinging- not now. A definite must have.
    So I did a spot test with this and it seemed fine.. tried it just on my nose and it was fine (just to be sure). Then I applied it as instructed on the areas of my face that needed it, needless to say, I had a reaction. My entire face is covered in hives. Where my skin has actually peeled off though, my skin looks amazing and hyperpigmentation is gone. But it has been 5 days and my skin texture hasn't gone back to normal.
    It’s okay...
    I personally didn’t see any differences in my skin at all. I have congested pores mainly on my forehead and it honestly didn’t do anything to them I’ve used the product for 2/3 weeks now. I’ve heard a lot of people say to purchase products that have BHA but this really wasn’t worth the hype in my opinion.
    I bought this when I popped into the shop in shoreditch and I have to say I couldn't be more impressed. My skin feels transformed. All my clogged pores have gone and my face has never felt more glowing or soft. The bottle is quite small but you only need to use a very thin layer to see the effects! Make sure you moisturise after though to avoid drying your skin out.
    The best
    Omg this product is amazing for congestion, I was suffering from severe congested pores along my forehead and cheeks. I used it 3 times in one week and it cleared it right up. It leaves your skin feeling clean and tight! Make sure to moisturise after as it does dry up the skin a bit. Definitely a must for clogged pores and problem skin.
    Хороший пилинг для жирной кожи с постакне. Действительно работает. ***A good peeling for oily skin with post acne. Really works.***
    I Thought It Was Weird, But It Works!
    I've had nothing but good experiences with The Ordinary skincare – you MUST try the Advanced Retinoid 2%, by the way! – but I was a little nervous about trying this product. The warnings it came with and the blood red colour (I felt like a vampire with this on) had me a little reticent, but I'm SO glad I tried this! I've never experienced such immediate results with a product before: I tried this on at night and I woke up with brighter, radiant and visibly clearer skin, all within a few hours! Magical. My skin did tingle a little bit upon application, but it wasn't red or sensitive afterwards – and I've got terribly sensitive skin! A must try.
    Dubious but so glad I tried this
    Was really not expecting anything from a product at this price, and it has blown me away. From the 1st use I noticed a massive result, flawless fresh and radiant. I have tried everything for my spotty oily skin, from dermolagica, skinicican, payout, pixi. And this is the only product with proven result.
    Extra-glowing skin in few minutes
    This product is the bomb! I never see my skin as radiant as when I used this product. I have normal to combination skin type and it doesn't strip or irritate my skin when I use it for the first time, leave my skin feeling soft and exfoliating.
    love it!
    Not gonna lie does burn a little bit when applied to sensitive skin after light exfoliation but THIS HAS DONE SO MUCH FOR MY SKIN!! Twice a week, one pump, works wonders. Considerably less break outs but still doesn't get rid of my pesky blackheads but makes my skin super smooth and really helped with my skin texture.
    Love it
    I love the peeling solution it tingles a bit on application but it’s worth it. You can see the results, as the next day my skin looks brighter and seriously smooth.
    I’m dark skin, oily combination. Lately during the cold season my skin has been very dry and I also suffer heavy with hyperpigmentation. After the first use I could see an immediate difference in the texture of my skin being a lot smoother. Within a months use my skin is thrivingggg! It looks so healthier and nourished. I use it once a week and it’s honestly my favourite skin routine and the best product I’ve ever used. My hyperpigmentation has gotten a little lighter too (I also use Alpha Arbutin & Azelaic Acid in my regime). Would 10/10 recommend it to anyone!
    I used it just like the directions but it is not what it is showed like in the user comments. İt has been 2 weeks since I had started and maybeee a little bit disappointed but I still have hope for this product.
    Great at home peeling solution
    I love this product, it's tingly going on, and the next day my skin feels the start of the peeling, finishing by the evening. I find lots of white bits coming up, that would've blocked my pores to become pimples. It's great for usage in the weeks in between my professional peels.
    İlk kullanimda bile sabaha puruzsuz bir ciltle uyandim. Simdiye kadar kullandigim en iyi urun *** Even in the first use, I woke up in the morning. The best product I've ever used.
    £6.30 facelift
    I loooovve this product!! I use about once a week and can see the reduction of fine lines around my eyes after every use. I used a light application for my first time but now lather it on quite thick, no bad reactions what so ever!
    Peeling solution
    I have sensitive skin but this really did not irritate it. My skin looks fab and refreshed!
    It really does work!
    I really like this product because it does what it says. It helped clear my skin. Before this product I tried the murad exfoliator which didn't do anything for me. I would 100% recommend this to anyone and I also hooked some of my friends up. They all love it. The only downside is that it really stings when you put it on. At first I couldn't take the pain so I didn't use it as much. But now my skin is more used to it. So don't leave it on more than the required time.
    Lovely product
    This peeling is absolutely amazing. I've used it three times, and my acne scars are really lighter. I love this product and I'm definitely going to buy another thing from The Ordinary.
    Perhaps a bit early?
    Probably too soon to leave a review as I've only used this about 5 times so far, twice a week but I have to say it bloody stings my skin for the first few minutes! (I do have sensitive skin when it comes to products stinging) but I have seen good results when I wash this off!
    Makes skin feel nice but had no peeling effect on me.
    Love it! My skin is smoother, brighter. Pores are less visible. Also works great with first wrinkles!
    Brightening skin
    This product has been wonderful thus far! When I put it on, it does tingle at first, but other than that, I have experienced no other side effects. I think this product has really resulted in my skin appearing brighter and glowing!! My skin congestion has also improved drastically since using TO's products! Yay!
    Big fan
    Love this product! I use it once a week and it makes a huge difference in getting rid of redness and leaving an overall clean and exfoliated face. Skin is left feeling smooth and fresh every time.
    Mind Blown
    This stuff is incredible. Instant results. Skin feels smooth. Soft to the touch. Pores, if you have any are visibly tight or non-existent. The face looks brighter and younger. Love this product. I travel a lot for work around the world, so that can take a toll on my face. 10mins of this magical stuff brings me right back to my youth and zero congestion on my face. Thank you
    Gentle peeling mask
    Hormonal acne prone & sensitve skin with texture and scaring. This is amazing, even got my fiance hooked! Holy grail.
    Really nice
    I use this one more rare, because it's strong.I leave it on for no more than 10 minutes and then my face feels so refreshed and looks great too, haha, I love the bloody color.
    Really didn’t wow me. Worth a try but maybe I am too used to acids, however this guy is meant to be pretty strong... I’m still baffled why this is allowed to be sold in the UK but the Drunk Elephant baby facial isn’t...
    I bought this as part of my intro to the ordinary. I’m impressed because I’ve spent a lot of money on other brands and this does a great job, better than the more expensive highly advertised brands. This does tingle the skin a little on application, but it passes and the result is fresher feeling skin. So impressed.
    Been using this twice a week for about a month and I love it. It does tingle slightly for a minute after applying but my skin looks & feels so much better after!
    I've used it for 2 weeks now and I can already see the results! My skin looks so much better!
    It's legendaryyyyyyy
    Fantastic product
    My go to product when I feel like my skin is bad. It’s a miriacle worker and makes your skin feel brand new
    Amazing Superb Product
    Really this product amazing we use this product long time and its good for skin . we love this product
    Love it! My skin feels fabulous after using this product
    I use this twice per week in conjunction with other masks from Biologique Recherche and my skin is fresh, renewed, smooth and a freer from congestion. I recommend using this at night and leaving it on until it dries. It will tingle, but that is your skin's PH getting used to the product.
    The best
    I use this twice a week and I am very satisfied with it. It helps me with my pores and I don't have any reactions after using it
    Life Changing!
    Use it once and you'll feel like you have a whole new face, after a week skin is consistently brighter, smoother and pores are smaller. 3 of my friends have started using it, I wouldn't go without it now.
    Pretty good
    I’m in my early 40s, have combination skin without any major problems, but I do have enlarged pores on my cheeks. This product makes my skin soft to touch and skin does look refreshed right after use so for that I give it 4 stars. But I haven’t noticed much improvement on the pores yet, after using it 1-2 times a week for two months.
    Mild peeling
    Its true to its description its a mild peeling solution and safe to use home. I didn't really experience peeling but my skin feel so clean and soft after using.
    I don’t know if it works or not
    It’s a cool product, smells a little spicy but is nice on the skin. It didn’t feel like much was happening until I rinsed it of, my skin was smoother than before and felt more clean. I don’t feel like it did anything noticeable with my pores, which it claims to do.
    Great stuff
    I use this once a week along with regular use of other The Ordinary products. I have noticed the pores on my nose have shrunk and those on my cheeks have reduced dramatically. It is easy to apply and as another reviewer mentioned, has a pleasant tingle about it upon application. My skin feels amazing after use.
    The Bomb
    I was a bit skeptical at first to try this, but then I went ahead and purchased, and the best decision I made. 10 mins is ample time, leaves me with fresh baby skin, it clears my skin, and I like the tingle, it means its working :) I use it every Sunday evening!
    This is something one must have. Applying once a week is enough. It gave my skin very beautiful look glowing and smooth
    Decided to give this a try to help with my congested forehead. I have definitely noticed a difference in the texture of my skin in my "problematic" areas (congested t-zone) but also in the areas of my face/neck which are otherwise good. The mask has a nice tingle to it upon application and leaves my skin smooth, glowing, and not stripped at all.
    This product does as it says, would not recommend however for sensitive skin as certain areas become quite irritated quickly. But definitely leaves skin glowing and soft as described.
    I like it
    It leaves my skin purified and so soft
    I decided to try this one because I have some other product from the Ordinary and I am happy with them and I also read a lot of good reviews about this product. I thought that this one could help me with my acne marks! I am using it once /twice a week for no more than 10mins and I am enjoying it.I don’t mind the smell and the red colour is fun for me. I feel like I am having a mini SPA session at home.
    Maybe if you had sensitive skin it could be too harsh or leave it on for less time....but it's brilliant! Skin looks amazing after. I will be repurchasing which I never really do, nothing ever seems to amaze me that much but this was brilliant especially for the price!
    Made my skin feel brand new!
    Game changer.
    This product is amazing, I'm 47 and have pigmentation from age and hormonal changes. After two uses the pigmentation is evening up and my skin feels as soft as it did 20 years ago. I've also notices how much easier and nice my makeup and moisturizer goes on, goes a lot further and my make up sits better and more evenly. It's amazing the difference these products have made, more radiant complexion and a youthful and healthy glow. I don't even feel the need for makeup, maybe a touch of eyeliner and a quick sweep of blusher/bronzer and that's it. In total, I spent around £30 on the four products and already has achieved as much as a one of £95 medical cosmetic facial I had trying to tackle the general lack of radiance and pigment issues. Amazing!
    I now have spots!
    Before using this product, I had a relatively clear complexion but a few problem areas, Now my face is covered in unsightly red spots! I've only used this 3 times so far, so I will continue to use for a few more weeks, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm starting to wish I'd never started to use it.
    Este produto superou minhas expectativas! Quando aplico na minha pele, sinto que ela fica com a aparência mais saudável! Amei o produto. "This product exceeded my expectations! When I apply it to my skin, I feel it looks healthier! I loved the product."
    Love,love,love this product. I have definitely seen the difference in my skin, even texture and more radiant for sure. Will definitely recommend this product, It does exactly what it says on the instructions, from the tingling sensation to the boost it gives your skin, to the soft texture for sure.
    So cheap and good.
    Acne prone skin saviour
    I have been suffering from acne for while now (on medication) and I have found this product has helped to reduce the redness left from the blemishes that once covered my face. If you are a beginner and not used to strong acids on your face, I would not use this straight away as it can leave a slight stinging feeling, especially if your skin is sensitive and not used to strong acids. I use this product twice a week, more towards late at night and use The Ordinary's Niacinamide product each day (would recommend to anyone with acne prone skin). For £6 this product is pretty inexpensive and definitely worth a try. I'm glad I tried this product as I shall be repurchasing.
    Seems promising
    I'm in my twenties and about a year ago I got acne for the first time in my life. Nothing has worked to clear it up. I've used the peeling solution 3 times now and my blackheads and acne have started to clear up. I do think that this product (and a few other acids) might be a new holy grail.
    최고 ***The best***
    그것의 좋은 나의 피부는 이렇게 좋은 아무 융기도 또는 아무 거 나 거기 뇌관 보기 좋다 ***It's good on my skin and it clears the bumps. I really like this product.***
    Don't expect instant results
    I have clogged pores/blackheads all over my T-zone and have hormonal breakouts so I really needed a good exfoliation. so far I've been using the product for a little over 3 1/2 weeks and, my skin feels 30% clearer. Not perfect but I'm gonna finish the bottle and see the end results. Also, I find leaving it on a little longer 15-20 mins does more than just 10 mins (obvs don't do this if you have sensitive skin!)
    Good stuff
    Left with clean and brightened skin. Makeup applies a lot smoother.
    I wish I could give 0 stars. I always had a nice skin. I am 24 and I NEVER had a breakout. Ever. This brand made my perfect skin a breakout with cystic acne and I am still struggling - it's been more than a month since I stopped using it. HATE IT!
    I don't get the hype...
    I really am disappointed with this. I'm not sure why (possibly due to a change in contraception/hormones) but lately my skin is regularly breaking out in acne- something that I've never really experienced before, especially not to the extent it is at now. After googling products to help with acne, this one came up so I had a look through the ingredients and the reviews. Although the reviews are quite mixed, there are so many amazing reviews that rave about how great this was and how amazing their skin now looks and feels. I was really excited to try it- especially as it's only £6, it's not a huge investment. However, I am disappointed. I really was expecting big things, but literally, there is no difference in my skin at all, if anything it looks worse (but I won't blame that on this product). The first time I used it it did sting quite a bit, but I liked this as it felt as though it was working. But after using it multiple times over the past few weeks this product really hasn't made any change at all, not even just to the overall appearance or texture or my skin. I'd say for £6 it's worth trying as so many people have had great results, but I personally wouldn't recommend it as unfortunately, I've seen no results from this.
    No more than once a week
    I love this peel, I use it once a week and find it very effective for unclogging pores and resurfacing skin. It is strong, so I make sure I use very simple, non-irritating skincare afterwards and the next day as well.
    Love this product
    I have only just started using this product and I love it. It makes my skin tingle which at first worried me but I haven’t had any reaction and judging by other reviews this is normal. It’s so easy to rinse off and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth with a nice glow. I can’t wait to see how my skin looks after continued use.
    This mask will have you glowing for days. I can't believe how affordable it is! I'll be purchasing backup! If you are prone to hyper-pigmentation then I HIGHLY recommend you include this product in your skincare routine. LOVE!
    Great product!
    This peel is terrific! It's not harsh and doesn't sting your face, but does leave skin looking brighter, tighter, and glowing! I am just so happy with my skin every time I use it! I use it about twice a week, but I wish I could use it every day. A thin layer is all you need.
    Better than expected
    Good product, considering it's price. It's all different, but my skin was ok after the first use. Recommended to use in the evening so you can get rid of any redness overnight and avoid sunlight right after the procedure. Easy to use. It gives good results in long term, my skin got better after almost a month. Never suffered from acne but struggled with pimples from occasional cheat meal. Healed everything, however the skin tone is still uneven. Compensating with soothing treatments.
    Wrinkle buster.
    I might be 26, but I just got ID'd at the airport and I'm 100% putting it all on to this product. I've only used it twice but it's managed to sort out some of my finer wrinkles and make me appear younger! So happy, that I've recommended it to my mum!
    Just wow
    I can see what all the hype is about. I was terrified to try it in case it burnt my skin but I was so pleasantly surprised. Only a mild tingle and it leaves my skin so soft it's incredible. Time will tell if it will reduce marks but this will be in the permanent rotation in my routine. Winner.
    This guy right here is amazing. Makes my skin so soft and glowy. Never tried something like this before. A little miracle in a bottle. Helps with my acne scars as well.
    Great product for a great price!
    This is the first peeling solution I have tried and I have to say I am really impressed. I was originally a bit skeptical about trying The Ordinary products because I already had a pretty good skincare routine and I was afraid switching would make my skin freak out. However after adding up the amount of £ I could save by changing some products I decided to take the plunge and picked up a number items from their range. I have to say I have been really impressed with everything i have tried and this just goes to show that you don't have to spend a tonne to get effective skincare. This peeling solution in particular is an extremely effective exfoliator and leaves my skin looking radiant. My skin is used to acids and so I don't find this too harsh but i can see how someone with less experience would find it pretty full on. For the price I would say try it out and gradually build your skins tolerance. I use it 2-3 times a week for 10 mins at a time and have had no issues.
    Very good
    Very good peeling, but very powerful. If you have sensitive skin, like me, use just for 3 to 5 minutes and you will be OK! Very good for smoothing feet, too. Let it on for 10 minutes then dry your feet with a hand towel and moisturize with a heavy duty cream...they will feel/look amazing.
    I love my skin now, it is glowing and smooth after 1 month use.
    Great treatment
    I use this once a week - sometimes twice because I’m bad and I love the glow it gives and if I have a slight pimple it just disappears. I have acne that I’ve managed to get under control but still suffer from scarring particularly red spots where a pimple was for months after. This really evens out my skin tone. I use a lot of acids and I do get tingles from it which I love. My biggest thing is to not use so much. Only a light layer so my skin is pink tinged from the colour of the product. I don’t get better results the more product I use so use sparingly now from when I first got it. Also, make sure your skin is fully dry when applying otherwise the acids won’t work and it sort of emulsifies. I have had it about 6 months and still have about a third of the bottle left so very much worth it for me.
    Amazing product
    Let me tell you something! This product is everything it works so well for my dark skin and it literally is clearing my blackheads and pimple scars.
    It's amazing
    I have never used a peeling like this. I was worried it would be too strong my skin. But I used this and I love it. My skin is very glowing right now.
    Love This
    I absolutely love this stuff. I use once a week in the evening after cleansing my skin, and it makes my skin super soft. I've never felt the 'sting' that people have reported upon application.
    I can't really say I see mind-bending results, but then again I prefer milder acids, more like toners, to use them daily. I can't be asked to be consistent with masks :/ I believe in day-to-day skincare. But still, when I have nothing else, I use this and it has never given me any problems, never broke me out, never gave me a rash. I got a red cheek once but it was gone overnight.
    Not bad mask
    It's not a bad mask but I tried better one. I can't see visible results after its using.
    Cheap but SO WORTH IT
    I judged this as it was so cheap and I thought it couldn't possibly help my pigmentation like a higher priced brand might. I was so wrong, this stuff is amazing and you can see results after the first use. BUY it!! Usually out of stock everywhere, so stock up.
    So smooth
    I literally 5 minutes ago just washed this off and immediately ran here to write about it. I can't BELIEVE how smooth my skin feels. It's astonishing. I can even feel the difference between the treated skin and were on my neck I stopped the mask. I wish I could bathe in this stuff. I'm truly lost for words. It's the best mask I've ever tried and I've gone through a good few of my time :) It comes off so easily too which is a huge plus for me. I really don't know what the others are talking about with any tingling/discomfort though, I didn't feel a thing. But then again, it's my very first use so perhaps the next time there might be something. For your reference I have severely dehydrated skin, an oily T and flaky dry skin in places - it's also not sensitive at all, my skin can cope with pretty much anything :)
    Baby skin!!!
    I'm really shocked at such mixed reviews on this product, I guess everyone's skin is different though. I used this for the first time a few days ago and every day my skin has been looking better I can't wait to use this peel again next week. My skin looks brighter and so clear. I had lots of congested hormonal spots under the skin on my chin and these are all clear. This product did sting a lot when I applied it but it's worth the pain! I wouldn't recommend if you have sensitive skin though girls. Amazing price too, I have masks in my bathroom from La Mer, origins, khiels, glam glow - I'm a total skin care junkie and nothing has given me such baby skin as this!
    Game changer
    After only one use I am absolutely won over. Easy to use, slight tingling but nothing crazy. Even immediately my skin felt a lot smoother and the morning after it feels glassy, looks so much brighter and clearer. I have struggled with the texture of my skin for a while but this has sorted it out in a single evening. My skin has been absorbing moisturiser like a sponge, so I'd say be armed with your richest!
    I really wanted to love this but it doesn’t do much for my congested skin. I have used it a few times and wanted to give it time to wow me so I could write a glowing review but that hasn’t happened. I like the colour and the fact that it tingles - it feels like something is happening - but then I wash it off and there is no discernible difference in my skin. Will I finish up the bottle? Yes. Will I repurchase? No. (Black/30s/Oily/Dehydrated)
    Not great
    This is one of the products I was really excited to try but honestly, I don’t see a difference at all. If I apply it at night I don’t see a difference in my skin in the morning at all. I think instead of a topical product like this an actual aha/ bha solution might be more effective as the ordinary recommends.
    Amazing, made my skin bright and smooth.
    Used this 3-4 times now and absolutely loving the results! Skin is a lot smoother and the little under the skin blemishes I had have now almost disappeared! Definitely recommend!
    Didn't help with fading my acne pigmentation and skin texture.
    Fabulous product
    The perfect pick-me-up for my skin if I've been slacking on my skincare, not drinking enough water, or generally am looking dull. I find it brightens my skin considerably without breaking me out too much, the results are instant, gives me skin like glass.
    Youthful, glowy tint
    This product is amazing. Might sting a bit, but the results are outstanding.
    Highly inflammatory
    I have used acid for years. This made my skin red and sore for days. I was so looking forward to trying it and it was not only disappointing but damaging. I will stick with their serums.
    Very good product
    I love this stuff! I was scared at first when I saw the colour and all of the warnings for it's use, but I am so glad I tried it! I don't recommend to use it often though, I use it once a week and that feels like enough. I use this and the Niacemide 10% + Zinc 1% every day and these are a dream combined. Very good for blackheads and texture issues.
    Quick fix
    This product makes my skin radiant and clean. The first word to describe this mask would be "clean" for me. After rinsing if off my combination skin feels purified; but not dry or dehydrated. It gives a bit of radiance, but it cant replace daily use of acids and retinoids/retinols in my opinion. My skin is used to acids, therefore I haven't experienced any sensitivity. I would recommend it if you want to add a booster to your skincare regimen. I gave 4 stars as I don't find the packaging user friendly.
    This product gives an instantly recognisable boost to my tired and lacklustre skin. I was intimidated by the warnings that came with this but I have to say that although I did experience some tingling after I washed the mask off (and of course loaded on spf 50). It was not an unpleasant sensation and it didn't last very long. It is wise to read the instructions to use it at night before bed to give your skin time out of the sun and ABSOLUTELY avoid broken skin or spots (I applied it only to my cheeks and forehead as I am currently having a stress break out on my lower face). I have combination/oily skin that I am slowly improving after living in a city with extreme air pollution for the last four years. The only other product that has made as much of a difference to my sometimes dull texture has been alpha h liquid gold but as it is more gentle than this it was over a period of use rather than after the first use.
    This product refines texture like no other I've tried. Any product used seems to penetrate so muck better. I have oily skin and I saw a difference after the first use. It does sting for the first 20 or so seconds after application, so a patch test would be a good idea for those with sensitive skin. ADORE this product.
