Always on the lookout for a great at home peel, I decided to try one of the more affordable skincare brands on the market. For those who do not know The Ordinary Skincare yet, you will definitely start to pay attention. This skincare brand offers really great products for super affordable prices. One of their top selling items is their peeling solution. Created with 30% AHA and 2 % BHA this is a great anti aging at home treatment.
Let's face it, we do not all have the time or the money to go to the spa and get a peel. I personally do not have the time. Therefore, when I find a great at home solution I am ecstatic! This week I went out and purchased a couple of the products that I have been wanting to try for the past few months. Among them was The Ordinary 30% AHA 2 % BHA Peeling Solution. This little bottle retails for $7.20. Lets be real girls and boys, you cannot beat that price! I mean even if you do not like it, it's not like you broke the bank. It costs less than a Starbucks coffee.
The Ordinary 30% AHA 2 % BHA Peeling Solution promises brighter and more even toned skin. This is a quick ten minute exfoliating peel that helps to eliminate pore congestion and diminish the appearance of blemishes. The directions say to apply onto dry skin after cleansing. So wash your face. then allow your skin to dry and apply the peel with your finger tips. Avoid your eyes! leave on for 10 minutes and wash with lukewarm water. Follow up with your moisturizer or moisturizing face oil. It is suggested to be used at night. No more than twice a week.
I used the peeling solution for the first time today. The solution itself is red. The texture is almost gel like. Goes on smoothly and immediately begins to tingle. I did feel a little bit of burning but nothing alarming. After about 5 minutes the brining did stop. After 10 minutes it felt a lot more comfortable. Once washed off my skin did look brighter.
Would I recommend this peel? Yes! Absolutely. For the cost it is definitely worth it. I do however suggest that if you have sensitive or slightly sensitive skin that you spot treat first to make sure it is not too strong.
It is always great to find affordable products! This is a must for those searching for a brightening peel. Happy skin, happy life!
