The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution 30ml

Code: DC2056
  • £4.20
Item in Stock | Same day dispatch if ordered before 2:00pm
The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution (30ml) is a water-free solution containing an exfoliating, Beta Hydroxyl Acid combined with Witch Hazel. With regular use, the Salicylic Acid treats the appearance of blemishes and develops greater skin clarity by exfoliating the inner surface of skin pores. Not recommended for use on sensitive, broken or flaking skin, the solution should be replaced with a less direct form of exfoliation if irritation occurs. Minimising irritation by excluding silicone, alcohol, nut, soy and gluten, the solution is vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.

Directions of 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.
  • Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes.
  • Do not rinse off.
  • Continue with additional skin treatments as needed.
  • If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician.
  • Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Please see below for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Sunburn Alert: this product contains a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
  • How to conduct an at-home patch test: Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if you will have a negative initial reaction to a new product. It is recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating a new product into your routine. We have outlined a general method for conducting your own patch test. Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm. Keep the area dry, preferably covered with a bandage. After 24 hours, uncover the area and rinse. If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product. Please note that the patch test is only for determining initial irritation reactions to products and does not guarantee similar results when applied to other areas of the body (including the face) or after continuous use. It does not account for underlying conditions and should not be used for the diagnosis of hypersensitivity or allergic contact dermatitis. If you are concerned about starting a new product, please consult a dermatologist prior to use.

I have read a lot about this product and how is is brilliant in reducing inflammation and clearing acne prone or blemished skin.

This item has had 100% NO effect on my skin, such a shame as I was really looking forward to it and it’s “benefits”.

Ive loved most of The Ordinary products, but this one immediately made me break out into lots of spots after only 1 use. I’ve heard this could settle after frequent use but don’t fancy chancing it after the mess it made.
