Have any of you tried The Ordinary’s 30 % AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) + 2% BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) Peeling Solution? If you haven’t oh boy, are you in for a treat. This stuff is intense, and if you haven’t tried it yet I think you should give it a shot. It’s very inexpensive as is many of the products from this company. You can purchase it at  www.theordinary.com for $7.20 USD.


This mask is very powerful and not recommended for sensitive skin, and because it has a high concentration of free acids do not leave it on longer then 10-minutes. If you experience any kind of irritation stop using it to prevent further issues.

What I love about this mask is what it does! The AHA exfoliates the top layer of skin not to mention evens and brighten your skin tone. The BHA also exfoliates and helps with clearing out your pores.


I love this mask but, I have to admit I had to get used to the intensity of it because when I initially applied it it felt like tiny needles were stabbing my face. I wouldn’t say it’s a bad feeling, it’s just different. After using the entire 30 ml bottle I did notice changes especially where I tend to have the most pores which is around my nose. My face did look brighter but, nothing amazing. With that being said, I will continue to repurchase this item because I love the price and I look forward to using it.

Let me know if you used it!
