The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Review

Hey guys! This is a review of The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. It’s a chemical peel by The Ordinary company. They have a few different ones, and this is the first one I got my hands on. So you guys know my skin’s been doing the most, right? Manual exfoliation has been too much for my skin so I’m now using this peeling solution. It’s The AHA 30% + 2% Peeling Solution by The Ordinary. From my observation, most of the products from The Ordinary brand are acid-based.

It’s been over a month and thus far, I have no complaints. I’ve been using it once a week and I’m thinking of upping that to twice a week. After using it my skin is soft, and smooth. It does sometimes tingle, but nothing alarming. I’m once again battling flair-ups that I credit to environmental and hormonal factors, but I’m managing. It’s set me back in term of clearing up the scars though.

Overall I think it is a great product for peeling at home and it’s reasonably priced. While I personally recommend it, remember that The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution is a chemical peeling product, so if you have supersensitive or broken skin, approach with caution or consult your dermatologist.

Update in 2021: It’s been a year and a half and I love this stuff. I have tried to use it on and off to get a feel of the difference it makes. It really does help to make my skin texture better, more clear and more supple. I’ll be moving on to trying the other peels from the line and some of their moisturizers. I’m really into Ole Henriksen products, but I will be trying a complete system from the Ordinary to see how that works for me. Of course, I’ll review each product as I go along. Wish me luck!
