Here are two of my favourite Salicylic acids - one is a long term favourite and one I've added to my stash more recently. But there's definitely one I prefer more to the other:
🌟 @bravuralondon Salicylic Acid 2% - I've used this Acid for a very long time, I love the brand Bravura London and this is my favourite Salicylic Acid ever. It really helped my skin when I had a bad bout of Perioral Dermatitis last year. Nowadays I use this about once a week (maybe more if I'm suffering from some bad congestion but that doesn't happen too often these days) - I'll apply after cleansing, on my chin, nose & cheek areas and then follow up with lots of hydrating products as Salicylic can be drying - I don't wash this acid off. I also use it to spot treat any milia that appear every so often .
🌟 @deciem The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% - I purchased this to see how it compared to my beloved Bravura London Salicylic Acid. I'd say it's just as effective as clearing congestion but I'm not as big a fan of the consistency of this product. It's hard to explain, but the Bravura London is a clear consistency, light weight like water and absorbs so easily - The Ordinary is a cloudy consistency, a bit thicker and takes longer to absorb.
So I will be sticking with my Bravura London as my Salicylic Acid of choice 👍🏼
