Packaging and Fragrance
The solution is packaged in a thick, matte-finish dropper glass bottle. Even with a matte surface, you can see through the bottle to check the amount. The dropper does a good job of dispersing the fluid. The bottle is housed inside a white cardboard box with all the information, such as the ingredients, product description, and usage instructions. The solution has a slightly thick viscosity and is clear in color. When you apply a small amount to your face and rub it in, it generates a white lather. The foaming doesn’t continue for long and isn’t a cause for concern. The product is fragrance-free; the only smell I detected was that of liquid glue. As you use the product, the aroma dissipates rapidly.
How to Use Ordinary Salicylic Acid
In your nighttime skincare routine, apply the Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% solution once. If you have acne-prone skin, you can use it as a spot treatment on trouble areas (such as your T-zone) or all over your face.
- It should be used in the treatment step of your skincare process, after cleaning and toning but before creams or moisturizers.
- To prevent the product from drying out your skin, combine How to Use the Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution with the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 under a heavy moisturizer.
Because this solution contains a BHA, it may make your skin more susceptible to sun exposure, according to The Ordinary. Wear sunscreen when using this product and for the next seven days.
This skincare treatment should not be used on sensitive, peeling, or damaged skin and should be avoided at all costs in the delicate eye contour area. Also, before using this or any new product in your skincare routine for the first time, patch-test it. Ordinary salicylic acid is now available for purchase in Pakistan on our website.

My experience with The Ordinary Salicylic Acid Solution
Salicylic acid is an oil-soluble beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that can penetrate the skin’s deeper layers to cure acne and unclog pores. After washing my face in the evening, I apply The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution. I finish with an oil-free moisturizer.
The solution is a little sticky at first, but once absorbed into the skin, it leaves no trace. I’ve used it multiple times to treat under-the-skin acne, which exfoliates the skin excellently without creating irritation. My under-the-skin acne, which only appears as a bump, improved after just two applications. However, it should only be used 1-3 times a week, depending on your skin’s tolerance.
I even used the remedy to treat a painful lump on my shoulder. It was gone after just one use. It did not appear and left no trace. I’m pleased with The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution for removing under-skin pimples.
I used it for pus-filled acne that I had this month, and it had no effect. For pus-filled acne, however, salicylic acid face wash worked better than this remedy.
Before I wrap up my review, I’d like to point out a few things to keep in mind when using any salicylic acid serum.
- Use broad-spectrum sunscreen at all times.
- When using salicylic acid, avoid exfoliating excessively.
- It should not be combined with other actives such as glycolic acid, retinoid, lactic acid, retinol, or vitamin C.
- You should avoid using this serum if you use a salicylic acid face cleanser.
- To prevent damage barrier or skin concerns, always patch test.
I truly appreciate this reformulated exfoliating serum. I believe lovers of the original The Ordinary Salicylic Acid Solution will be relieved that it is now available in a less irritating formulation. This serum will be ideal when my skin is acting up, and I need a salicylic acid product to quiet down a breakout or pimples.
The Ordinary Salicylic Acid, 2% Solution, has a lightweight texture and an oil-free foundation that feels good on my mixed skin. I recommend this product as a blemish treatment that is less irritating than other salicylic acid treatments available over the counter.
