Happy New Year loves! Here’s to an amazing year!
So like everyone else, I’m starting this year with a major bang! 🎊
Back to this review, I’ve always been battling with pimples on my forehead and cheeks so I decided to try something else asides the Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent that I had been using all year.
You know when you’ve been using a product for so long your body/face gets so used to it and then it stops functioning? Am I the only one who has noticed this please?
Anyway, I decided to try something new and I just had to get my hands on this, let’s get into the review.
THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST.
Product: The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution.

How I Use
- On freshly washed face, I apply this using the dropper on my forehead, cheeks, jaw, neck, chest and back (basically where I have pimples).
I rub into my skin till it disappears (it disappears in seconds by the way)
What I Think
- I love that this Salicylic Acid is mixed with Witch Hazel which makes it nondrying and quite moisturizing too.
With daily use (morning and night), I noticed significant reduction in the appearance of pimples on my face (I’d have attached a picture but I’ve relented a bit because of laziness so I’d definitely post it on my Instagram).
I love that it doesn’t tingle or irritate my skin.
I love the dropper applicator for precision.
I love the simplicity of this brand too, anything black and white just gets me so yes there that.
Will I Buy Again?
Yes please, the fact that this isn’t drying is amazing.
