    Perfect spot treatment!

    I have naturally dry skin and cannot often use toners or spot treatment without having really really dry patches following. I have been using this as a spot treatment and not only do my blemishes clear quickly, they are appearing less frequently! I also love that it has witch hazel in it, it has been perfect for my skin this winter! So glad I found it and for such an unbeatable price!

    Just ok

    Not too great. This is just an ok product or at least doesn't work well for me. I've used it for spot treatment but my tea tree oil works better. This leaves my skin burnt and it looks worse with those black Marks. I will still use it lightly here and there.

    Love it!

    I Love This!

    I discovered this in Nov 2018 and have been using it on and off when needed since. I can't use acne stuff that has the same active ingredient as ProActiv so I have to use products that contain Saliclyic Acid instead. I can't remember what I paid for this but it wasn't very expensive. In fact, I don't think it was much more than the regular acne stuff from the drug store. Only this is a much better deal as it's more concentrated and I can use less so it last a long time.

    Another great product!

    I am loving The Ordinary line. Everything I've tried so far has been wonderful! The 2% Salicylic Acid is no exception. It helps to keep my skin clear and smooth looking. I love it, it's perfect!

    Cheap and gentle exfoliation

    I've repurchased this product twice already. I used it every second day as my only form of exfoliation. It keeps my adult acne at bay, and my skin looking poreless. I used to use the Paula's Choice salicyclic acid, but this is about a fifth of the cost (and a little goes a long way), for the same effect. I hoard two bottles at all times!

    SOOO good !!

    This is not only the best but cheapest acne treatment i have ever purchased! whenever i feel a breakout coming on i apply a thin layer of this to problem areas and it seriously works over night, it does leave a slight tacky feeling but as long as you wait for it to dry it goes away.

    Best Spot Treatment IMO

    I use this product as a spot treatment and my face is noticeably clearer from acne. It's not quite a magic potion, but it's pretty close! I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

    Slowly working to get my blackheads under control

    I have only been using this for a week now and I am trying to figure out with the other products I use when it is the best time to put it on my face. Right now, I use it directly on my T-Zone for my black and white heads, it does not sting but it drys quickly and sticky. If you use water based products on it it will foam up a bit so I use it directly after the "buffet" solution.

    It works

    It works quite well. No scent which is nice too. Great price. It has definitely reduced my acne and break outs and I see a noticeable difference. Would recommend.
    Also love the applicator and there is a lot of product inside for the price you pay.

    I would repurchase this item

    It works well to keep my breakouts under control. It can dry your skin out if you aren't using a moisturizer after it. It gives a slight exfoliation to the skin as well which is nice. I definitely saw a reduction in breakouts after using it regularly
