I will be entirely candid and admit that as much as I like to believe I’m super savvy and knowledgeable in the realm of skincare, I’m really not. I mean, I’m not a complete imbicile when it comes to knowing what works for my own skin, but I’m certainly not a professional.
I am in my 27th year and am delighted to report that I’m still dealing with acne!!! Winner, gagnant!!
The previous statement is laden with sarcasm, in case you didn’t pick up on that.
Since I’ve been dealing with zits for well over a decade now, I’ve come to learn, somewhat, what helps diminish my acne, and what does not. I’ve been debating getting a chemical peel done for some time now as I’ve read they’re great for acne scarring and discolouration, but they ain’t exactly cheap. So, when I read about The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, you can bet your ass I yeeted this puppy into my Amazon cart and bought it.
The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, according to the DECIEM website, works as follows:
“Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin’s topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. This combined 30% AHA and 2% BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and for improved skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use.”
I purchased this product via Amazon for roughly $20, which is incredibly reasonable for a chemical peel product. I strongly recommend reading all of the information about this product on DECIEM’s website prior to using it, however, as this shit is bloody strong, and some folks have actually experienced burns on their skin from it. This shit ain’t Burts Bees, so please read all of the product’s information before using it.
I’ve used this product twice, and so far, I’m really liking it. I think it’s a great substitute for a literal chemical peel, and it’s quite affordable.
