The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

After I presented the ➔ The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, a perfect entry-level product, in March, I would like to show you the much stronger peeling solution of the brand today.

It should be said in advance that this chemical peel is absolutely not a beginner’s product. Please carefully approach this type of skincare. In any case, use milder peelings at the beginning and give your skin time to get used to the active ingredients!

This awaits you in this post

  • The difference between AHA and BHA
    • What can The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution do?
  • My experience with The Ordinary Peeling Solution
    • Conclusion


Before I really start the review, I would like to briefly outline the difference between AHA and BHA . Because both acids occur in this peeling from The Ordinary.

AHA denotes alpha-hydroxy acids. These include, for example, fruit acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid and mandelic acid. AHA acids are especially recommended for dry skin types. These acids penetrate particularly deeply into the skin. They exfoliate the skin surface and have a moisturizing effect because they stimulate collagen production.

BHA denotes beta-hydroxy acid. The well-known salicylic acid belongs to this group of acids. BHA products are particularly recommended for combination skin and oily skin that is prone to blemishes. The salicylic acid binds fats and cleans deep into the pores. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.

This chemical peel from The Ordinary contains both acid groups. This makes the peeling a very effective skin care product! At this point I would like to note that this peeling is definitely not for very sensitive skin!


The Ordinary AHA and BHA Peeling Solution
  • strong peeling that removes deposits from the pores
  • fights the first signs of aging
  • a radiant, healthy complexion


Before I ventured me this strong peeling, I have a few months only the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution, which I you in March 2019 here have presented used.

With this beginner product, I have carefully accustomed my skin to chemical peels. It was only after I noticed that my skin tolerated the product extremely well and I could see positive effects that I took the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution ( you can buy it here ).

The Ordinary AHA and BHA Peeling Solution Brush application

Thanks to the pipette, the product can be dosed well. I don’t apply it with my hands as recommended, but with a cosmetic brush. The blood-red chemical peel has an aqueous consistency. So you need quite a lot of product; insofar as you use the peeling on the entire face. At the beginning, I left the red “peeling mask” on my skin for a maximum of 3-5 minutes. The peeling made my facial skin tingle a lot. I totally like it when you feel something directly and do something on your skin! 😀

I increased the exposure time from week to week. I now leave The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution on my skin for about 10 minutes before removing it from my face with a damp microfiber cloth ( Amazon ‘ ) . I still feel the tingling sensation. However, it is nowhere near as intense as it was in the beginning.[Display]  facial tissues

The Ordinary AHA and BHA Peeling Solution Pipette

My skin feels super smooth in the morning after application. I also feel that my pimple production has slowed down a lot since I started using The Ordinary chemical peel. Especially on the chin! Months ago my chin was covered with innumerable nasty pimples. I still have pimples in places, but the number and size have decreased significantly. * CHECK! * 😀

The Ordinary AHA and BHA Peeling Solution texture

The peeling also prevents my many underlays on the forehead. They have definitely become less since I started using The Ordinary Peeling Solution on a regular basis. I can not say that my skin shines more or looks super healthy. Maybe I just don’t really notice it.

At this point, I would like to emphasize again that it is very important to wear sun protection during the day if you use chemical peels. Please keep this in mind and don’t take it lightly! I am happy to link you here a post about my favorite sun protection for the face ➔ Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45 . 🙂


The Ordinary AHA and BHA Peeling Solution

The AHA 30% + 2% BHA Peeling Solution of The Ordinary is one of my favorite products from Deciem. Since I’ve been using chemical peeling consistently, my skin has become significantly cleaner and smoother. I don’t want to do without it in my weekly skincare routine. Big recommendation on my part! 🙂
