    10. A bestseller from The Ordinary, the AHA+BHA Peeling Solution, which is a perfect 10-minute exfoliating facial.

    Lookfantastic / Via tidd.ly

    You should perform a patch test before using it on your face, as it can be strong for sensitive skin. Wash off the mask and follow with a heavy-duty moisturizer, and you’ll wake up to great-feeling skin the next morning! The peel makes your skin more sensitive to the sun, so don't forget to slap on some sunscreen.

    Get it from Lookfantastic for $10.
