description

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin's topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. This combined 30% AHA and 2% BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and for improved skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. This formula is further supported with a crosspolymer form of hyaluronic acid for comfort, Vitamin B5 to assist healing and black carrot as an antioxidant.

Great for beginners and light peeling/ pore unclogging! This review was originally written for The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

It's strong enough to work as chemical peel. I felt like I have to put moisturizer right after to sooth my skin. This can be good for some people and maybe too much for others. One thing clear is...

Pros: cheap, left skin with a healthy glow, helped plump up my fine lines for a while after using this. Cons: messy applications, it breaks me out. It might be the BHA in it because the ordinary...

This is a liquid mask that chemically exfoliates. Not something you want to leave on your skin for a long time, as the teeny tiny directions on the bottle state. It slightly stings on application...

OMG! I love this stuff. You can't beat the price an it's very effective. I felt that tingle pretty soon after applying and knew I'd found gold. Great product. Will repurchase when I'm out.

I love using this before an event or once a fortnight. The texture is liquid but not runny. One has a slight tingling sensation but it doesn't last. After rinsing, the skin looks fresh and radiant....
