The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Review

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Review

Another day, another The Ordinary review.  I have been using their 2% Salicylic Acid and here’s my review on it.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Review

Brand Claims:

Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. This 2% treatment solution helps exfoliate the inside walls of pores to fight the appearance of blemishes and for better visible skin clarity with continued use. 

Use in the AM and PM. Apply a small dot directly on spots for visible improvement or apply a small amount over the face to maintain visible clarity with continued use. 

More details are available on the brand website. 

PS: This Salicylic Acid product also contains witch hazel, which I actually like for my oily skin but I know some people would rather not have astringents in their skincare.

This is a clear liquid with no discernable fragrance to it. It sinks into the skin nicely and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy or tacky. It layers well under other products. It didn’t dry out or irritate my skin.

It contains only 15ml of product, which is rather small.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid Review

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid does exactly what it claims to do. It is a great spot treatment. When I put it on spots, I wake up to see that the spots have gotten smaller or disappeared, depending on the size of the spot.

I wish it worked a little bit faster. I find that Alpha H Liquid Gold does a much quicker job of shrinking my spots.

I also put it on my nose and chin where I have comedones. Those areas have been feeling smoother since I started using this Salicylic Acid on them, but I’ve not yet gotten the smooth poreless look I’m after.

I’m not holding that against The Ordinary though, they didn’t promise a miracle, just a spot treatment, and they delivered on that promise.

Who else has tried this? What do you think of it?
