Thoughts from Fel, Ro & BW Team:

Okay yes this one can look a little intimidating on the outside 😅, but what this baby does is help to reveal the inner softy underneath, a.k.a our skin. We love using this treatment on those days when our skin looks a little lifeless, dull, dry and flaky and doesn’t seem to absorb other products like they should. So if you’re looking for a weekly treatment that does the most, you could be looking at it… 👀

We recommend making sure your skin is used to chemical exfoliants before jumping into this, and slight tingling sensations are normal, tehe.

How to Use

This solution is intended to be used as a masque, by experienced users of Direct Acids only. After cleansing, wait for your skin to completely dry and apply evenly over the face and neck, avoiding the eye, lip, and sensitive areas. Leave on for no more than 10 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. Avoid using other strong active ingredients the same night of use, and focus on gentle, moisturizing products after using the peeling solution.

Use no more than twice per week. The Ordinary recommends performing a patch test prior to incorporating a new product to your routine. Click here to see The Ordinary’s in-depth patch testing guide.
