Attention Required!


It’s safe khổng lồ say that my skin hasn’t been handling the pandemic well. During, you know, normal circumstances, my skin tends to stay on its best behavior (#blessed, I know), but during the age of COVID-19, it’s looked (and felt) basically as stressed as I am. I’m talking random breakouts, dullness, rough texture…seriously, the các mục goes on.

So when I heard about The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution—a $7 at-home page chemical peel that promises the smoothest, brightest skin of your damn life—I knew I had khổng lồ try it immediately. Sry for the spoiler, but lemme just say my skin has taken a complete 180 since I added it to my routine. It’s that good.

The formula’s altrộn hydroxy acids (glycolic and lactic acids) work lớn exfoliate the top layers of your skin, helping fade acne scars & brighten dark spots for even-toned, super-glowy skin.

And when combined with beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid), the formula becomes a true acne fighter, clearing out your pores, minimizing excess oil, and preventing breakouts. Can you say dream team? BTW: It’s also filled with hydrating ingredients, lượt thích hyaluronic acid và vitamin B5, so I promise it won’t dry out your skin.

Yep, when you don’t exfoliate regularly, you basically have sầu an army of dead skin cells that bloông xã all your pricey serums from sinking in and doing their jobs. When you use a chemical exfoliator, the acids gently break down those dead skin cells, so you’ll find that your skin is finally able to lớn soak in all the goodness you’ve sầu been layering on.

The test


Since my skin isn’t prone khổng lồ irritation or redness—the words “chemical” and “peel” don’t have me running for the hills—I decided to dive sầu right in (for the record, though, you can totally start with a spot kiểm tra if you’re on the fence). I washed my face & made sure it was completely dry before smoothing a thin layer along my face & neông xã.

The first time I used this chemical peel, I did get a tingly feeling in some spots—but nothing too painful. Remember: Your skincare isn’t supposed to hurt, so if you feel an intense burning sensation, go ahead & wash the peel off your face. After I let it sit for 10 minutes, I rinsed it all off và followed with a super-hydrating moisturizer.

Even though most skincare products take a few weeks to lớn kiông xã in, you’ll legit notice a difference in your skin after using this bad boy once. I swear my face looked instantly brighter right after I used it for the first time—and after using it once a week for about a month, I’ve noticed some major differences: My skin looks brighter, my dark spots have sầu faded, & my breakouts are few và far between. Kindomain authority the dream, right?


The verdict

I know, it high-key looks like you’re putting blood on your face, but the results are just as worthy of an Insta pic. Less breakouts, brighter skin, minimized fine lines, & less congestion.
