The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 30ml


Achieve a radiant glow with The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, a very high concentration acid-based exfoliator for normal skin types that visibly clears pores and brightens the complexion.

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution’s vibrant, deep red solution features alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) which exfoliate the skin’s top layer to leave an even, illuminated appearance. It also includes beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to deeply cleanse congested pores. When these acids are paired together and used regularly, they transform the skin’s texture by minimising the appearance of blemishes and fine lines.

Tasmanian pepperberry derivative helps reduce the irritation that is typically caused by acid use. In addition, the solution features a form of hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5 to comfort and hydrate skin, while black carrot acts as an antioxidant to protect against free radicals like pollution, cigarette smoke and UV rays that cause the skin to age.

Why We Love It

The Ordinary Peeling Solution’s high concentration of acids make it an affordable alternative to a chemical peel that you can use from the comfort of your own home. The vibrant red formula uses a duo of acids - which are a notoriously for their exceptional skin-smoothing properties. And, don’t be worried about the using potent direct acids on your skin because The Ordinary have infused soothing ingredients to target inflammation from the effects of this.

Held in a glass bottle with a pipette top to ensure you only apply the right amount of this extremely potent formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great peeling solution for the price! I came to skincare a little late in life! This product from the ordinary really suits my skin - it does not burn or sting and works really nicely as a chemical exfoliator!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product The product is good, but very strong. Make sure to follow the instructions when using it. I also learned that using it once a week at the start is good so your skin can get used to it, then you can move on to using it twice a week. The delivery time was really quick which is also good. Strongly approved
