Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment

Ideal for oily, combination, and acne prone skin

Main benefits:

Exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface leaving the skin softer, smoother, and brighter.

Controls excess oil production

Decongests the pores reducing the possibility of spots

Removes blackheads

Encourages skin cell turnover and boosts collagen production

Effective bactericide - will kill acne causing bacteria

Actual salicylic content 5%   pH 3.7 - 3.8

Directions for use:
Take a cotton pad (supplied) with the solution and wipe over the skin. Allow 1 minute for the solution to penetrate the follicles.
Take a second cotton pad and again dampen with the solution. This time however work the cotton pad over the skin by rubbing gently in small circles paying particular attention to congested areas (typically the T-Zone).

The mechanical action of rubbing the cotton pad over the skin along with the chemical action of the alcohol and salicylic will allow the fibres in the cotton pad to trap some of the gunk in the follicles  and facilitate it's removal.

One application will not remove the gunk and it will take several applications to make progress. The length of time it takes to clear all the congestion will depend on how congested the pores are to begin with.

There is no need to rinse the skin.

This method can be used daily but, if you find your skin becoming overly dry or showing evidence of irritation (slight redness) then carry out the procedure on alternate days.

This procedure can also be quite effective at relieving Keratosis Pilaris ( a build up keratin in the follicles manifesting as small, sometimes inflamed, bumps under the skin typically on the arms and legs

For some useful tips for controlling oily and acne prone skin read our post here:
Ingredients: Salicylic Acid, Alcohol Denat, Propylene Glycol, Glycerine.
Use as desired. You may wish to use the solution on a daily basis if your skin is particularly oily or acne prone. But you may find that using every other day is sufficient.

Take a cotton pad and dampen with the solution. Work the dampened cotton pad over the complexion by rubbing gently in small circles.

Please note- you do not need to neutralise this product on the skin as it is a self neutralising product, but if you prefer, you can rinse the complexion with warm water.

Great on areas of congestion and blocked comedones. I have been using this every 2-3 for about 12 months and am very pleased with the results. My skin is very smooth in the morning, any spots that I can feel 'bubbling' under the skin are markedly reduced and feel over the worst of it. It's also great to use on cotton bud over a busted spot, kills the bacteria. Remember to use after a hot shower, moisturise well and wear sun block!

This is my holy grail BHA product and I am never looking back. Took a chance on this one because of the low price and the positive feedback that has given on some of their AHA peels. I was previously using a Paula's Choice BHA but wasn't blown away, especially considering the pricetag. Within a couple of days of using this product, my daily breakouts had cleared up - no exaggeration. I nearly cried with happiness. I was quite worried about it drying out my already dry skin but haven't experienced that at all. The only downsides I can come up with are the very strong astringent smell and the slight burning on application. After my first application I was very upset, thinking I would never be able to use it again as it caused my skin to redden. The next day I was so amazed at the results that I didn't give a damn about any amount of burning. My bumpy skin was smoother and my spots had all but vanished. It's also a little fiddly - I use a fan brush to apply that I received with one of the peels ordered here too. I imagine using the cotton wool pads provided might waste some of the product. I honestly can't rave about this product enough. Total game changer! I have extremely dry acne- and closed comedone-prone skin.

I'm very impressed with this lotion. i used it yesterday night for the first time. it burnt a little and i was afraid i'd look like a corpse in the morning (because of a string of late, short nights.) Instead, i have glowing skin, my complexion looks more even and i won't need to wear foundation! can't wait to see what my skin will look like in a couple of months

I never wrote any product review. But I couldn't resist myself to writefor this one. Being suffering from severe acne from 12 till 25, I had loads if acne and acne scars in my face. I tried all products intended for acne. You name Any brand, I used it. But nothing helped. Then I saw this website and decided to try as I was nothing to loose from my already horrifying skin. The first night I used, I thought it will not work. But Omg! I woke up with all the pimples shrinked! They were dried and redness lessened. It's really a miracle for me! Now it has been 2 weeks. I'm using it every other day at night after cleansing my face with a cotton pad and swiping it in small circular motions and leave it overnight. Within this two weeks, my acne has reduced from 90% to 5%. Yes! It's true. Now only I'm left with a bit of scars from my previous acne and I am definite that sr products will sort it out. I will buy all my skincare products from here now on and will definitely recommend others. Just try it and see magic!!!

This toner is fantastic. I use it 3 times a week and I can honestly say my acne has all but disappeared. I have tried practically every acne treatment on the market and this is the most effective one I've ever used. Like to thank Kelli for all her good advice too

Best product ever! Really helped to cut down acne breakouts. Lifesaver!!

Great for clearing the skin and really has helped me. Only slight issue is that the alcohol can be a little drying but I guess a cream would help that

This stuff works! I'm used to using the strongest peels from this company which I have been using for years and thought I'd try this toner for my congested skin. Warning though, it is very strong, if you are not used to potent active skincare be careful using this. If you are not sure it works, cleanse and tone with your normal skincare, dab a bit of this on your cotton wool pad and see for yourself what your normal stuff has left behind! It leaves my greasy and congested skin clean and shiny. My new holy grail skincare.

Just Brilliant! I came off the pill and I was dreading the return of hella spots and grease and bad skin, and instead, I've been using this for 3 months and my skin looks better than it.ever.has.before! I actually have good skin now! It sometimes stings a bit and needs a good moisturiser after, standard stuff with a 5% exfolliant I think, and I will be buying this for a long time :) cheers guys

Fabulous product. Been using this every other day for a few weeks and my skin has improved amazingly. A lot less spots and almost all blackheads now gone!
