    • Why it's Cult

      The first mask in The Ordinary’s cult-beloved range, this jelly-like mask is enriched with BHA (beta hydroxy acid) salicylic acid to gently exfoliate away pore-clogging debris and reduce inflammation – making it an excellent companion for congested, blemish-prone skin types. The jet-black hue comes courtesy of clarifying charcoal, which teams up with other clays to ensure a deep and thorough cleanse. The result? Smoother, clearer and more radiant skin after use!

    The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque

    The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque Reviews

    Amazing charcoal mask, pores are shrinking
    I love using this mask, I have quite sensitive skin so was a little nervous, but I took small steps and didn't leave it on for the full 10 mins the first couple of times. My skin feels great, pores are a lot smaller since using it and generally my skin is cleaner. I do use other ordinary products, but this is mask has really helped clear out my pores.
    not so sure...
    I’ve suffered from hormonal acne for years which has recently got worse, so I had high hopes for this mask after reading reviews! The first time I used it my skin reacted pretty badly, with a strange, painful breakout (not like my usual ones) that just won’t go away and burns constantly. I thought this may have been an initial purge from first use, so tried another 3 times, I think my skin looks clearer, acne and hyperpigmentation reduced, hormonal acne seems to have reduced but I’m still struggling with the initial reaction/breakout 2 weeks later! don’t use any other harsh products whilst using this as I think this is what caused my reaction, stick to calming and non-drying ingredients, using my usual Inkey List salicylic acid cleanser with this is a no-go with this mask!
    Pretty good charcoal mask
    This is a nice mask for calming down acne. I have quite sensitive and reactive skin and this hasn't caused any irritation at all. It's not groundbreaking, but pretty good considering the price tag. I would love to repurchase it, but it's forever sold out :D
    If you have problem skin you need this
    Honestly wondering why I didn’t invest in this product earlier. It’s really good and you can see a difference after the first use. Great for acne
    Love it!
    Love this mask so much!! I can see when I use it that I have less redness. It's super gentle on the skin and it works well!!
    The best
    A must for acne prone oily skin. Might take time to get adjusted to...can cause dryness and flakiness at first...but after 3-4 uses it will start showing results.
    i love it
    It really helped me to control my acne and it makes the skin look good after using it
    Great mask
    I use a mask a couple of times a week. Sometimes it pinches a little skin, but does not cause discomfort. The effect is good - the skin is slightly lighter, the inflammation is dried. Great thing!
    Fab
    Really like this product, easy to apply and to wipe off. Makes my skin feel amazing
    A good product
    It's amazing
    Best masque for acne prone skin
    Amazing product for acne prone skin! Does everything it claims to do and more.
    Totally works!
    Love using this product! Works really well on spot prone skin.
    Amazeballs
    Love, love, love this. Super nice to use, no bad smell, doesn't dry, tingle or sting. Really works on small bumps that threaten larger spots. So easy to remove too once dry, just lean over sink or bath and rub it all off.
    Salicylic Acid 2% Masque
    I love this product! It is lightweight and fluffy, you don't feel like you are wearing a mask until it dries down. It dries out quickly and does not tug on the skin like other masks. It is good for oily skin types. I am re-purchasing it!
    Cleans but dries your skin
    Be careful, very dry skin after use. The mask itself is black in color. Cleans the skin pretty good.
    Fantastic
    One of the best things I’ve ever purchased for my skin, it’s the first product I’ve used on my face in years where I can actually see a noticeable difference. So pleased and especially for the price it’s a fantastic buy.
    Give me all the salicylic acid!
    I am a hardcore The Ordinary fan, I just LOVE their products. I have very sensitive, post-acne skin (although I still often suffer from hormonal adult acne) and salicylic acid has honestly changed my life. This masque is a lovely addition to use and I swear I see a difference even straight after I use it. I use about once a week so as not to dry out my skin.
    Only mask i use
    This mask is just the best. I made a mistake when first time using the mask. I exfoliated with enzyme peeling before the mask and i broke out a little bit (whitch was my fault). The nex time i used it, was without the peeling and it worked wonders. It leaves my skin feelig soft and it shrinks my acne imflamations.
    need to repurchase
    I loved this mask as an alternative to using liquid BHA's on the nights I would exfoliate. There was 0 irritation and it worked great on my oily-combination skin. I am going to repurchase as soon as it is back in stock
    Love it
    I really like this mask, I tried the Ordinary Peeling Solution and it breaks me out every time, this leaves my skin glowing and really smooth, I also feel like my hormonal acne is really calm the next day and looks a lot better. Going to up my usage to twice a week as it really makes a difference to my skin. My only con is that when I first got it and shook it a bit it literally felt like half a tube- you could hear it moving around like it wasn't full but for the price, I am happy to keep purchasing.
    Amazing mask!
    This mask has replaced The Ordinary AHA 10% & BHA 2% peeling solution mask. It applies on quicker and helps with really oily skin and congestion. My skin loves it and I have made a repurchase. CON: it is a small amount. It will get finished quickly.
    Great but messy
    You do have to use a lot of products to cover your whole face and it is a bit messy washing it off, but I always see a difference immediately after using it. My skin looks brighter and I love the added element of charcoal.
    Love it for breakouts
    I saw Ruth Crilly (A Model Recommends) talking about this in one of her videos and thought I’d give it a go. I suffer from hormonal breakouts in my chin and milia. I use this 1-2 times a week along with other exfoliates and I do think it helps to clear the gunk in your skin and dry things up.
    Love it
    Absolutely love it. After each use my skin looks brighter and softer. The mask doesn't sting or burn, application is easy and it sits nicely on skin without any tugging. I use it once to twice a week and I can say that it is a must have if you have acne prone skin. It helps and works great with other treatments I use.
    Amazing product
    Amazing product, it works so well on the skin.
    This works!
    This is so good, I used it every second day to clear up a bad breakout and it didn't dry my skin out too much. The spots haven't come back which is even better!
    Totally works
    Love this mask! Cleans my skin without drying it out. Perfectly works on my combination, acne-prone skin.
    Gets to work
    I like this mask, it didn’t dry my skin and it tingled a little when first applied so not sure if it would be ok on sensitive skin - I made sure to use a thin layer as instructed otherwise face may be on fire. I have combination skin and always get breakouts on nose and forehead as tend to be oily. Skin felt considerably cleaner and smooth afterwards which was great before bed and the angry spot seemed less aggravated but by morning it was back to being painful again!
