My Experience with The ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% peeling solution


Is very basic other ordinary product which comes in a glass bottle with a dropper and it is spill proof and that makes the product travel-friendly.


a slimy red colored solution which actually looks like the blood which gets absorbed by the time.


no fragrance at all.

My Experience:

I started using this product twice a week when I felt I have uneven skin tone and textured skin. Gradually I reduced its usage to once a week. First of all, I do not feel any slight hint of tingling sensation while it’s on my face so I can tell it is contains mild acid. After I rinse off my skin feels smoother and less textured. As it contains active acids I apply normal moisturizer or oil after that so that my skin takes time to act upon the ingredients in the peeling solution. I mainly use it at night so that my skin can rest and wake up fresh. The night I use it next day morning my skin just shines with a healthy glow.
