The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution


Achieve skin clarity with The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, a blemish-fighting treatment that helps clear pore congestion.

More suited to a blemish-prone skin type, this targeted treatment is infused with 2% beta hydroxyl acid to exfoliate inside the walls of your pores, for a visibly clearer complexion.

The perfect way to unblock and decongest your skin, this oil-control serum helps to regulate sebum production whilst eradicating the production of blackheads, breakouts and redness with added witch hazel.

Apply directly to a blemish or dispense a small amount all over your skin every morning and evening before the application of moisturisers and oils. After the use of the Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, limit sun exposure and wear SPF throughout use and for a week afterwards.

Not suitable for sensitive, broken or peeling skin.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution 30ml is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little spot treatment I tend to use this just as spot treatment, if I see one coming I will dab a bit of this on after cleansing and nine times out of ten it nips in the bud. Occasionally (normally around my time of the month) I will use across my face - forehead, cheeks, nose and jawline if feeling particularly oily or sense an impending breakout and it works great. Personally I wouldn't do this everyday as would find a bit too drying, however may work for others. Great treatment and unbelievable price. Have been using for a couple of years now, basically since release and think I am on my third pot now, so definitely lasts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works with teenage spots/acne My teenage son's have been using this product and it has really made a difference within days! They are both very impressed and it's affordable too. Would recommend using a gentle cleanser first and then Natural Moisturising Factors + HA afterwards as it can be drying to the skin area. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes yes My second purchase from The ordinary,definitely not the last one. Using every night after Niacinamide before night detox cream all over my t-zone and locally on my spots like night spot treatment. I can see results and when I will run out, I will definitely buy another bottle. 30ml is a lot and will last a long time because I need only couple of drops and is easy to spread,dries quite fast as well. No irritation,no peeling if I use a moisturiser afterwards. Amazing PRICE and very good value/quality. Well done

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super effective product Iv’e been using this for about a month and my skin appears clearer ! It works better when you don’t pick your spots (causing them to scab) and apply directly on the spot morning and night. It’s easy to use and works well with a toner for my skin to reduce redness.
