The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque
Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is formulated to help target lackluster tone and textural irregularities. The formula, infused with charcoal and clays, aims to enhance the appearance of smoothness and clarity, leaving the skin feeling refreshed. The structure of salicylic acid facilitates its lipophilicity and miscibility with the lipids located on the surface of the skin. It is a suitable ingredient for targeting the sloughing of dead skin cells on the surface of oily and blemish-prone skin, with the purpose of revealing more radiant skin beneath. Charcoal and clays are ingredients renowned for their cleansing abilities due to their porosity and large surface area available for absorption. In comparison to Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is a rinse-off formula. Leave on for no longer than 10 minutes in order to maximize the exfoliating benefits.
Directions: Use once or twice a week on thoroughly clean, dry skin. Do not use on wet skin. Apply evenly across face using fingertips, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Morgan from Works Great I use this mask at least once a week, but usually twice a week. I always use it after I've skipped my normal skincare routine for a day or two, or anytime it seems like I might have a breakout coming on, and this mask makes my skin feel so clean and look so clear. I believe it seriously has stopped breakouts in their tracks. Its awesome. Already bought another bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yuki from I am loving this mask! I bought this as the ordinary is currently not doing the salicylic solution they used to have which I also loved! After using this mask my skin feels so nice, fresh, and exfoliated and it definitely seems to help spots heal faster. Definitely stick to the recommended application time and only use once a week or so as you don't want to irritate your skin.
