This ALMOST lives up to the hype

If you watch TikTok, you’ve probably seen this. And I think it ALMOST lives up the hype. But like a lot of other people have said, you need to be careful when you use this. The good: - I do feel like my skin almost instantly looks smoother and brighter after I take it off and the morning after I use it I definitely feel like my skin has a glow. - I have noticed my acne scars have started to fade (after 6 uses). It’s definitely not a one and done though. - I feel like my texture and pores do look significantly better after using this. - I love how it washes off so easily! Some masks require you to be a bit tougher with your skin, but this will wash right off with some water. - I have never experienced any peeling / dryness. The bad: - It stings. I hate to say it but it’s true. It stings the moment I put this on and I don’t have sensitive skin. How I use it: I make sure to use this at most biweekly and I never leave it on for more than 10 mins. Is it worth it? I think it’s worth giving it a shot! It’s not too expensive and I do think the results are really nice. I’ve used it 6 times and it still looks like I have a full bottle, so I do think you get bang for your buck. Just patch test first!! Will I repurchase? Honestly, I’m not sure. I had to essentially smuggle this one into Canada since they don’t sell this product here. I’ll have to see after I’m done the full bottle (I’ve been using it for the last two months so far). Ps I have combination, acne prone skin :)

rash0921Excellent! I usually use it with First aid beauty first aid cream, which is known for its moisturizing, calming and repairing effects. The reason for choosing it is Colloidal Oatmeal, the first ingredient on the list, which balances the PH of the skin, relieves the acid irritation, and moisturizes the skin. Its texture is like a cream mousse♥, which is easy to push away and absorb, love it. Use this peeling solution first, then apply a hydrating mask after washing off, and then apply the FAB cream, you will harvest SUPER soft skin! I would like to recommend this perfect combo to u!

New Skincare Journey- Tips welcomes
Hi everyone, I am so excited to start this new journey. The pictures I uploaded is a depiction of my current skin. Following doing the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, patting dry and then applying the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skinand Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil. I suffer for hormonal acne (not that bad) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I have had these issues since middle school, with periods of clear skin. I have done some research and this is what I am going to start are my skincare routine starting tomorrow. Am Routine I am going to start my routine off with the essano - Rosehip Gentle Facial Cleansing Micellar Water. Then I will use the Aveeno - MaxGlow Infusion Drops, followed by the Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. Then the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skinand my favorite Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 . This the only daily sunscreen that I have used and I love how soft and bright ir leaves my skin. I was having trouble finding a face oil, but the Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oilreceived a lot of good reviews from people with similar experiences so I thought it would be a good product to try. Pm Routine I am going to start my routine off with the essano - Rosehip Gentle Facial Cleansing Micellar Water again. Then I will use the The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, followed by the Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment. Then the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skinand Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil. On Sundays (my first day) At night, I will continue to wash my face with warm water, beforing patting dry and applying The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. This is my third time using this product, I only use it once a week. The last two times I apply a niamincide-based moisturizer afterward and I think it caused my skin to break out. I do see my blemishes lightening with this product, so I will continue to use it for 10 minutes once a week. After I rinse and pat dry, I will apply the CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin. After my first use, I do feel my skin to feel more elastic and moisturized, but the smell is a bit unappealing. Following with the Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil, I currently have no comments on this product. I am open to any assistance or concerns. I look forward to journaling this journey ❤️

My thoughts on this......
My thoughts on this......
So I actually got this about 8 months ago (before it got super famous on tiktok) and I actually really disliked it at first. Cause when I used it the first couple times i used it at a time when my skin was pretty sensitive and it made my face all red and unhealthy looking. And I was like I’m never using this again. Ya so basically I’m really dumb😂 BUT I started using it recently for the past month or so and I’ve been really enjoying it! Just like when my pores feel really congested or I feel really oily this really helps to unclog them and it gives me a not a “squeaky clean” feeling but it makes me feel fresh if that makes sense😅. I haven’t seen any very dramatic changes in the appearance of my skin but it does help. Plus I think with this product it’s something that u have to use consistently to see really good life changing results. I do have to say tho my sister who has recently been struggling with acne and acne scarring this I have noticed has really been helping her with that. I can just see that her skin looks brighter and she has been getting less breakouts😊 Let’s get to how to use this: I use this 1 time a week because it’s VERY strong and I leave it on for 10mins max. I do not recommend this if you have very sensitive, cracked or dry skin. as I said before this is a VERY strong chemical exfoliant so if you have not used chemical exfoliants before I DEFINITELY do not encourage you to use this. Just know just cause something is trending or has helped other people it does not always mean it will work for you cause everyone has different skin.The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

So you want to start using the AHA BHA peel...
So you want to start using the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ?Whether it be from TikTok or Skincare by Hyram I’ve never seen an item blow up at work quite like this one. I’ve recommend this a lot in the past but I wanted to give it a quick proper post and recommended use. This chemical exfoliating mask offers both the outer layer exfoliation of an AHA and the deep pores cleaning power of a BHA. Personally, I think all skin types can benefit from this product but especially those that are oily or acne prone (the only skin type I probably wouldn’t recommend is sensitive). This mask targets texture, pore congestion, uneven skin tone, and signs of aging. First, always do a patch test! Especially if you’re a beginner to using acids in your routine. If you pass that then it’s time to cleanse the face. After cleansing you need to make sure your skin is bone dry. Water is a penetration enhancer and you don’t want this mask sinking deeper into the skin than normal. You want to apply an even layer over the skin and wait no more than ten minutes (if you’re a beginner to acids I would probably start with five and slowly work your way up to ten as your face gets used to the mask). The Ordinary recommends using this mask no more than twice a week but I personally would recommend just once because it is on the stronger side. Rinse, and apply the rest of your routine. You also may be asking “is there anything I can’t pair with this mask”? Yes! I would stay away from any other AHAs, BHAs, Retinol, and Vitamin C applications in the same routine as the mask. You just revealed a fresher, newer layer of skin and you don’t want to sensitize it with too many “harsh” products. When I use this I always stick to niacimiade and more hydrating (fragrance free.. I learned that the hard way once after a peel mask) products. You may also be asking “is there any up keep after using this mask”? Yes! You need to be using a sunscreen. NEED. Like this is non negotiable. You’re revealing fresher skin and that skin needs to be protected. If not you’re putting yourself back at risk for sun damage, hyper pigmentation, and more fine lines/wrinkles down the line. If you’re not using a sunscreen everyday after using a product like it’s counter productive. Personally, this mask does wonders for my skin. I’ve heard some people say it tingles but on me it doesn’t (but my face is used to acids). If you feel absolute burning wash it off immediately and asses your skin. It’s a peel so it does have potential to burn if you’re not careful. I’ve seen a reduction on the appearance of pores and a more even complexion with weekly use. It’s also worth noting too The Ordinary doesn’t recommend use of this on flaking or broken skin.

Bye bye pigmentation & acne scarring
Bye bye pigmentation & acne scarring
When I read a review that The Oridinary had an AFFORDABLE product that was just as good if not better than drunk elephants babyfacial I decided to give it a try and for under $10 what did I have to lose? The Ordinary AHA30% + BHA 2% aims to smooth and exfoliate skin texture and lighten any dark spots, hyper pimentation or acne scarring. Umm... all of the above please. So this is ideal for dry, oily and combination skin. I’m not super sensitive, but If your skin is, I would sample a small area first. This is loaded with Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid which all three aim exfoliate the outer layers of the skin, while the salicylic Acid aims to clean out inside the pores, removing any blockage. First off the color is bright red and almost looks like blood, it has a berry scent when you first apply it and offers a slight tingling sensation. When I first got it, I only kept it on for a few minutes because I was scared of burning my skin. Now I use it 1x per week for 10 minutes. There is some skin redness after use, but this typically diminishes within the hour. I love the way my skin looks and feels afterward and have noticed significant improvement in lightening scars I have along my jaw line. Ive also seen an improvement with the overall redness in my checks, over all my skin looks brighter and more uniform. I plan to repurchase this item when I run out, and have recommended nearly everyone I know to try it. It really is that good! More about the product: Free of sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan, and triclocarban, and contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances. This product is also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free.

MAGIC IN A BOTTLE
MAGIC IN A BOTTLE
For those of you that don’t know this is a strong chemical exfoliator and is not for sensitive skin. Why I Bought It: So I bought it because everyone said it would help with dark spots/hyperpigmentation, blackheads, acne, large pores, and dullness. Honesty I bought it because it sounded like magic in a bottle. And for $7.20 I was sold. My Experience: This was my first time trying a chemical exfoliator so I was scared at first but once I put it on it wasn’t that bad. It’s did feel a little warm on my skin but nothing bad. But I did get a little on my lips on accident and it felt like it burned them so ya don’t do that. Other than that it was an easy application and easy to wash off. Right after I washed it off my face was a little sensitive not that much. Is It Worth It?: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution In my opinion I would say this is definitely worth it and for the price it’s amazing. My face was SO soft after. My large pores seemed smaller. My blackheads were gone. My face didn’t seems dull anymore. It didn’t seem to do anything for my acne or my dark spots but I didn’t expect anything on the first try so we’ll see if anything changes after a month or so. My Advice: I’ve seen some people saying to use this twice a week but in my opinion that’s too much I would say start off using it once a week and if that’s to much then once every other week. Also after using this limit your sun exposure and use sunscreen because if you don’t you can make your skin worse.

Pore Minimizing BHA serum!
Pore Minimizing BHA serum!
The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Solution This is the Ordinary’s 2% Salicylic Acid Serum. This product works best for oily to dry skin. It contains salicylic acid and witch hazel to help treat acne and blemishes as well as reduce uneven texture and the appearance of pores. The brand recommends patch testing before using and wearing sunscreen after use since the product can be quite strong for sensitive skin types. The texture of this is similar to most serums with a sort of thin consistency that dries down fairly quickly. I will say that when I do rub this product into the skin it tends to sort of turn white and almost foam up, but nothing major really happens. Overall, I do like this product, I think that it has worked well with my skin and helping to reduce the look of pores as well as help to reduce acne. I find that with this product its best to slowly incorporate it into my routine rather than just going straight into applying it everyday. I also think that with this product, consistency is key to making it work. For the first few weeks, I didn’t notice much difference, but then I stopped breaking out as much and I’m pretty sure this is the secret. I think that this is a great product with it’s low price and it’s effectiveness for my skin. I would especially recommend this to someone who deals with more under the skin pimples like me.

Closed Conedones.. let’s talk ✨ I’ve had these my whole life! I’m 17F so still battling it. These products have worked wonders. I have always used The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution and it was the only thing that helped my skin for months, but not enough. So I’ve tried so many products and during a pandemic I took the time to do research and landed on the rest. With the The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% my bumps went away overnight last night, my first night trying it. And with OXY - Acne Medication With Benzoyl Peroxide it kept my acne from forming and keeps my skin clean, it smells like pool water but don’t let that fool you! They all worked wonders for my oily bumpy skin.
