Salicylic Acid 2% Masque is formulated to 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 removal 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 deep cleansing abilities due to their porosity and large surface area available for adsorption. They aid the removal of facial impurities that would otherwise remain on the skin surface and clog pores. 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.

Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling, or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions.

Note: While exfoliating acids can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest the use of indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD's Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a suggested formula.
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. Do not use on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. Patch testing prior to use is advised: Apply the product as directed to a small area once a day for three days to test if you are sensitive to this product. If you develop severe irritation, hives, swelling of eyes and mouth, blistering, or difficulty breathing, rinse off, cease use and consult a physician right away. Keep out of reach of children.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. See how to combine multiple formulations from The Ordinary in a single regimen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... Does a great job at exfoliating skin and making it soft. The black colour is quite fun too. It's not my favourite way to apply acids as I think a serum or a wash gel is faster, but it has been a good experiment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... I finally managed to get my hands on this, it was always out of stock everywhere I searched. It is so good, it made my skin so smooth I couldn’t stop touching my face. I always follow up with hyaluronic acid or NMF afterwards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... Absolutely love this mask! I am a total The Ordinary convert and have recently started using this mask once a week. It leaves my skins feeling SO clean and fresh and smooth. I really love it. I've heard about the benefits of Salicylic Acid from Dr Pimple Popper on social media, which is why I went looking for it, and it has really helped improve the blemishes and spots I've been suffering from as I have to wear a mask all the time now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... Love it!!On of my favorite Salicylic Acid products. It makes a noticeable difference to my pores, which seem smaller and have less debris after using this mask. It is slightly drying, so I moisturize after using. I have not found the ideal frequency for myself. The package lasts a pretty long time. Overall a very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... This product is GAME CHANGER. After one use I noticed a difference in my skin, and now use it religiously once a week (usually Sunday’s). My skin LOVES this product- always glows & looks/feels so smooth afterwards. I threw out every other mask I own as none of them do this one justice (truly the holy grail for me). Just wish it came in a bigger bottle!
