Comparing the “bloody peels” The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution & Revolution Skin Intense Skin Exfoliator – 30% AHA + BHA Peeling Solution

I think many have heard about the famous “bloody” in The Ordinary AHA peeling 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. In my experience, this is the best I have tried, a fairly large percentage of acids, by which “blood” peeling like a vacuum cleaner cleans the pores from within, good smooths, evens skin tone. But the constant “SoldOut” on the website leads to search for alternatives. When Revolution Beauty (also known as Makeup Revolution) there was a line’s skin care, all at once realized who “went nuts” brand this time. I think the similarity is obvious. I decided to compare and tell you what is going on? Is Revolution Skin Intense Skin Exfoliator — 30% AHA + BHA Peeling Solution is a clone of The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution or yet another product?



Both tools are positioned as the 10-minute exfoliating peeling mask. The combination of AHA / BHA affects the top layer of skin, cleansing pores and improving overall tone and texture.



Visual similarity package will leave on conscience of the manufacturer, as a consumer I have more important functionality and convenience. Convenient. Pipettes-stable jars, rubber tops of the pipettes will not slip in your hands, but Golden cap Revolution Beauty glides, are small but negative.




The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Solution Peeling liquid, almost like water, krivokrasov saturated colors (hence the popular name “blood peeling”)


Revolution Skin Intense Skin Exfoliator — 30% AHA + BHA Peeling Solution is lighter, more transparent and a little thicker so applied to the skin easier, does not drip from the skin.




I made a table in which allocated matching components. But we immediately see that the sequence of components, and therefore the number of different.



In The Ordinary peel used 4 kinds of AHA-acids: glycolic, lactic, tartaric and citric. The peeling Makeup Revolution, no tartaric acid, which is in version of TO.

From MR there is also a set of fruit extracts (citrus, passion fruit, grapes, pineapple) that act in place of the missing acid, which would bring the percentage of full ANA up to 30%


Interesting thing: Makeup Revolution have not specified the percentage of salicylic acid that it contains, and, probably, its concentration is quite low, which makes the peeling less effective against acne because of salicylic acid is best is fighting with the rash.


Both peels contain black carrot (Daucus Carota Sativa Extract) and Tasmanian pepper (Tasmannia Lanceolata Fruit/Leaf Extract) , probably affect the color of products. Carrots are rich in vitamin a (retinol), and Tamanskaya pepper helps reduce irritation from all the acids.


The Ordinary also contains other soothing ingredients such as aloe Vera and a modified form of hyaluronic acid , which is not at MR.

Also in “The Ordinary” contains panthenol is the alcohol analog of pantotenovu acid, provitamin B5 which has regenerating, emollient and protivovospalitelnoe action.


Glycerin contain both, but higher in the MR formula – perhaps that is why Mr. the texture is a lot thicker than in the TO. The water is also higher in the MR list, which affects the texture and speed of action of peeling.


And finally Revolution Skin Intense Skin Exfoliator — 30% AHA + BHA Peeling Solution contains denatured alcohol , which degrades and weakens the skin. Floor Runner says that if alcohol is listed higher than 5th in the list of ingredients — you have to be careful. In the formula MR alcohol listed on 12th place… seems to be not critical, but higher than other key ingredients in the formula of ( black carrot and Tasmanian pepper).



The composition of the peels are not identical, but the main active ingredients contain both peeling. In both formulas contains 30% alpha-hydroxy acids and BHA-acid (2%, x%) and this is enough to get a effectively-working peeling. Both peels give excellent results, I can’t say which one is better, both work for me similarly. I do not feel any discomfort with any of the peels, my skin is not red, no pain, and peeling, both of peel act delicately. But keep in mind that my skin is used to acids and retinol, so guarantee that you just will not “bake” and the skin will not be peel off, I can not.

Prices are not much different, so which one to choose is up to you.
