Surely you’ve noticed blood-red smiling faces and the image of glowing skin that follows on social media?
So I also noticed this miracle of a product called The Ordinary Peeling Treatment with 30% AHA and 2% BHA Acid and had to try it. The concentration of acids in the peel is like in those for professional use used in dermatological surgeries, so I was interested in a product with such a high concentration of acids, which is given in retail.
Peeling contains 30% alpha-hydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric) and 2% beta hydroxy acids, or salicylic. While alpha hydroxy acids, and especially glycolic acid, exfoliate the surface layers of the skin and remove wrinkles and small imperfections, salicylic acid due to its lower molecular weight acts in the deeper layers of the skin and “cleans” enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation. The formula contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, carrot extract which has antioxidant properties and soothing Tasmanian pepper, to make the product tolerable for all skin types, including sensitive ones. Tasmanian pepper berry extract gives the peeling a red color.
It is applied in the evening on cleansed and dry skin of the face and neck, dabbed with the fingers, and left to act for a maximum of 10 minutes. In principle, it is applied as a mask and rinsed with lukewarm water. I recommend using it once a week, although the manufacturer states that it can be used up to twice. Avoid unprotected sun exposure at all times, especially when using scrubs.
The skin literally shines after removing the peel, after the first application. The results are instantly visible, the skin is even, the blemishes have been removed, and I have noticed that my wrinkles are less visible. Facial skin gets a healthy glow.

A small note: if you have not used chemical peels before or you have very sensitive skin, skip this peel and start with lower concentrations of acids and gradually increase, so you will reach this extremely effective product.
The price of this, as well as all The Ordinary products, is affordable and that is why he got a clean five from me.
