While there are many serums and solutions to choose from, there’s one in particular that’s garnered a lot of attention from beauty shoppers.

Called the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution from The Ordinary, this skincare hero is meant to be an exfoliating facial for 10 minutes. Formulated to help brighten and even out skin, it can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and blemishes.

With hundreds of five-star reviews online, this solution is not only a cult-favorite but it also has a super appealing price — it’s less than $8!

Free from alcohol or silicone, it’s made with alpha hydroxyl and beta hydroxyl acids that exfoliate your skin and cleanse your pores. Since this formula has a super high concentration, it’s recommended to be used by those who are experienced with exfoliators and don’t have sensitive skin.

“Love love love it. Made my skin so smooth and clear” wrote one five-star reviewer on Ulta. “Blemishes are going away” the shopper continued.

Another explained, “This takes a little patience but [it’s] 100% worth it! The first time I used it my skin was baby soft immediately after but I woke up to some slight breakouts the following day which I attributed to “skin purging”. I’m on my 3rd week of using this product (no more than 2x a week) and my skin has never looked this good in my life. It’s the first time EVER that my skin has been smooth! Definitely give it a try but be weary around dry patches and don’t abuse the product instructions from The Ordinary!”
