Salicylic acid in skincare
Salicylic acid also called beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is an ingredient that is commonly found in skincare products. It can penetrate deeply into the skin to help exfoliate the skin, combat acne, reduce oily skin and blemishes. If you have acne-prone skin, don't miss it!

I’ve started using this product to help with my oily skin, in addition to that I stopped using two products that I used to use that both had 2% salicylic acid. So, I no longer have salicylic acid, which I have been using for a while, in my skincare routine. I’ve noticed little whiteheads appearing all over my face. I’m wondering if it’s a result of no longer using salicylic acid or if my skin simply does not like this cleanser. Or it could just be the product really unclogging my pores and purging my face. If anyone has experienced this while beginning to use this product please let me know!

Salicylic Acid in My Routine
Ok so I already made a post about my thoughts on this mask The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque and I’ll admit I was a little harsh on it- but it’s because this mask is MESSY and I’m all about convenience and being able to quickly apply a product and not have to think about the details, is what makes me happy. However, a got a comment on that previous post (@MartaPol) and it was recommended that I apply this before I get in the shower and then rinse it off in there. I gave it a try and the mess issue is completely resolved this way! It’s still a little too much thought for a face mask for me personally , and I’m not usually a nighttime shower taker, but I will definitely be using the mask like this until I use it up! I’ll also note that this mask does make my face baby soft!! I always follow with a heavy duty moisturizer- my favorite for calming irritation is LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations

The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid Serum
The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Solution This serum is another I tried to help with the blackheads on my nose and chin. It did not do it for me. It is for blackheads and acne for all skin types. This two percent treatment solution is supposed to help exfoliate skin, and fight the appearance of blemishes and for better visible skin clarity with continued use. At first it works but then I broke out like crazy. I thought maybe my skin was purging but it literally didn’t stop for over a week and I had to stop using. As soon as I stopped using it the pimples cleared up. It might just be my sensitive skin - it’s so hard for me to find treatments that work! It’s thick in texture - syrupy almost. It also bubbles slightly when you apply almost like mild soap. I do like this brand and have used their hyaluronic acid serum which works great so it might just be this one for me. It was suuuuper cheap - $5 at Sephora which is the main reason I bought it. On to the next I guess!!
The Ordinary-Salicylic Acid 2% Solution
Great value salicylic masque!
I have been using this weekly and honesty my combo, acne-prone skin loves salicylic acid. It’s one of my go-to ingredients for acne busting. This mask isn’t overly drying, especially if you tend to have oily skin like me. It is really hard to get off though, which sucks. But the mask is like 10-12 bucks at Sephora or on Deciems website. High quality product for a low price! Their BHA Peeling mask is also a holy grail for me. Worth trying for the price.
The Ordinary-Salicylic Acid 2% Masque
Salicylic Acid mask from The Ordinary✨
A lot of people on my Instagram recommended I try The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masqueto help control my blemishes and have smoother, more even skin texture. The formula aims to enhance the appearance of smoothness by targeting the removal of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. It is recommended to leave the mask on no longer than 10 minutes but because I’m just introducing this product to my skin, I left it on for 5 mins at a time. This product is also vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free! I’ve used this mask only twice now so I will have a more thorough review in a few weeks, but for now I can say that: 👍🏼 the mask went on smoothly and evenly ❌ it had a SLIGHT tingly feeling 👍🏼left my skin feeling soft and radiant

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
