The wait is finally over. The Ordinary – a.k.a. everyone’s favorite affordable skincare brand – has released its first ever face mask today. We can’t tell you how long we’ve hoped for one, but like good things, good face masks come to those who wait.
Adding to the The Ordinary’s portfolio of high-quality products featuring clinical technologies and active ingredients, the ‘Salicylic Acid 2% Masque’ works overtime to tackle oily and blemish-prone skin. Made with a charcoal-based formula, which reflects in its rich black color, the creamy mask is both deep-cleansing and acne-targeting – that’s where the salicylic acid comes in. And with its $12 price tag, it’s also an absolute steal.
With the mask now available on The Ordinary’s online store, we’re guilty of prematurely nerding out on the product to learn exactly how it’ll fit into our skincare routines. As per the brand’s advice, the mask should be applied to clean skin and left to “bake” for ten minutes, once or twice a week. And if past product drops by The Ordinary are any indication, it will make its way to cult status – and sell out – in no time. We’ve already saved a spot on our beauty shelves.
