Redness and itchy skin

I used salicylic acid a year ago with the same brand, and it worked perfectly on my skin. However, the order I received recently made my skin irritated by causing redness and itchiness below my eyes. The irritation lasts for a couple of days. Too bad I ordered two of those, and I am certain I will never use them anymore. Such a waste of money.

Really good for blemish prone skin

I love this product! It works so quickly and easy to use and apply. Works really well in combination with other products. Helps my breakouts. Definitely recommend and worth it. I’ve got many of the Ordinarys products but this is the one I use the most and recommend- be careful not to over use it though or it can dry out your skin

Amazing for blemishes

I love how gentle and lightweight the serum feels on my skin, making it perfect for everyday use. It has helped to minimize my breakouts and control excess oil production, leaving my skin feeling balanced and healthy. Overall, I highly recommend incorporating a salicylic acid serum into your skincare routine, especially if you struggle with acne or oily skin. It has been a game-changer for me, and I can't imagine my routine without it now!

Caused rashes and swelling

I've used the ordinary salicylic acid for a long time and used their new product for a few weeks. Unfortunately I cannot any longer. It now causes red, raised welts around my eyes and the skin swelled up around it so badly they were peeling for days after. It took me weeks to get to the bottom of what was causing it.

Such a staple product

Ive been using this serum for a while now and its turned my skin from red blotchy and blemished to even toned soothed and i rarely get spots and blemishes. Just bought my second bottle and will definitely buy over and over . The best everyday serum to use under makeup. It absorbs into the skin so easily and doesnt leave a sticky residue like other serums ive tried in the past

Best Use: Breakouts & Acne, Treat Pigmentation / Dark Spots, Treat Redness, Uneven Skin Texture
