Thankfully, that's going to change when The Ordinary launches the Salicylic Acid 2% Masque on May 29th. A clay-based formula which heroes the best pimple-busting ingredient around: Salicylic acid. A powerful BHA exfoliant that penetrates deep into pores and eliminates blackhead and pimple-causing oil and dirt.
Additionally, The Ordinary's dark black mask contains purifying charcoal - embued with natural properties that act as a magnet, drawing impurities out.
What makes salicylic acid so effective?
Salicylic acid is a BHA or beta hydroxy acid. It’s a rapid, oil soluble chemical exfoliant (that means it doesn’t break down with water) so it can penetrate into deep into the pores of the skin.
It’s a popular ingredient that is used in facial cleansers, toners, exfoliators, pimple treatments and body washes. Targeting congestion and breakouts on the face and body. It’s also used in anti-ageing serums because of its ability to reveal softer, smoother looking skin.
The Masque is officially available to buy from the 29th May, and will be available from Deciem.com.
