I Tested A $7 Chemical Peel On My Sensitive Skin, And I'm High-Key Obsessed
The Ordinary is coming for dermatologists everywhere.
I chose The Ordinary for two main reasons: First, it's affordable AF — the peeling solution is only $7.80 — and second, the products I've tried in the past have all been bomb.
My biggest fear: I DIDN'T WANT TO BREAK OUT. Okay, also I didn't want my skin to burn, because...chemicals. But seriously, having sensitive skin means I can't play any games with my beauty routine.
I have always had pretty large pores around my T-zone, which annoys me when it's time to take photos.
With both alpha and beta hydroxy acids, the product promises to clean out congested pores, deeply exfoliate to fight visible blemishes and fine lines, and improve skin texture.
According to The Ordinary, AHAs "exfoliate the skin's topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance," and BHAs "also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion."
