After two years of anticipation and a waitlist of over 400,000 people, one of The Ordinary’s most beloved products is available again. The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution ($7) relaunched on January 20 and remains in stock, for now at least. The product will be available on theordinary.com and in all The Ordinary’s stores.
When the cult-classic product at an incredibly affordable price went off the market, it had beauty lovers searching high and low for similar treatments only to come up empty-handed. If you didn’t get a chance to try the iconic product before its hiatus, here are the details on The Ordinary’s most in-demand product.
What is The Ordinary’s Salicylic Acid Solution product and how should we use it?
This salicylic acid serum from The Ordinary is perfect for those with with blemish-prone skin to use as it targets acne, unclogs congested pores, gets rid of dead skin cells and improves the appearance of redness and comedones. The result is clearer, smoother skin that’s able to heal. If you have oily, acne-prone skin salicylic acid products are just what you’re looking for. However, if your skin is on the more sensitive side opt for a glycolic acid product for exfoliation.
Of course this serum stars salicylic acid as an active ingredient. The product also includes inactive ingredients like cocamidopropyl dimethylamine, chlorphenesin, citric acid, Hydroxyethylcellulose, phenoxyethanol, polysorbate 20, saccharide isomerate, sodium citrate, sodium hydroxide and water. It‘s worth noting that reviews suggest avoiding applying the serum anywhere near the eyes.
The brand’s most recent launch that focuses on skin barrier repair, Soothing & Barrier Support Serum ($17) is also not to be missed. Be sure to grab The Ordinary’s Salicylic Acid 2% Solution as soon as it launches or risk the chance of it selling out again for another two years. Other salicylic acid treatments from the brand include the Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution ($8), a a more gentle version of the original salicylic acid treatment that exfoliates, targets blemishes and evens skin tone and he Salicylic Acid 2% Masque ($14) with vegetable charcoal, Amazonian clays and squalane.
