Revolution have launched a brand new product within their skincare collection, and it’s the Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution.
Many of the Revolution Skincare products look extremely similar to those from The Ordinary, and as soon as I saw this brand new launch, I instantly knew it had been created to be a The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% dupe.
Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution
This new acid peeling solution from Revolution Skincare has been created to be a weekly skin treatment which helps to exfoliate the top surface of the skin. It contains 30% AHA and 1.5% BHA.
- The 30% AHA mix is a blend of Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Fruit Acids from Bilberry, Blueberry, Super Maple, Orange, and Lemon.
- The 1.5% BHA is Salicylic Acid.
The 30% AHA mix within the formula help to exfoliate away dead and dull skin, to reveal fresher, smoother skin below with refined tone and texture.
Whilst the 1.5% BHA (salicylic acid) helps to get deep into pores to ease congestion and help prevent breakouts, leaving skin appearing smoother and more radiant.
Apply the Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution to a clean face, do not use on wet skin. Apply evenly across face and neck. Rinse with lukewarm water.
This solution is intended to be used as a masque. Do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. Use SPF after use.
The Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution has a bright red colour, just like The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. There’s something you need to consider when comparing the two.
The Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution is £10 for 30ml, whereas The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution is £6.30. So The Ordinary’s version is almost £4 cheaper, but not only that, there’s a difference in formula too.
- Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution – contains 30% AHA and 1.5% BHA and is £10
- The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution – contains 30% AHA and 2% BHA and is £6.30

The Ordinary Ingredients:

So not only is the Revolution version more expensive, it actually contains less BHA so it’s a milder formula for £3.70 more.
So whenever a brand produces a ‘dupe’, it’s always important to check the ingredients list to ensure the ingredients are the same quality, and the same quantities of active ingredients, always check the product volumes, and also check the price.
Just because it’s Revolution, it does not mean it’s a cheaper, better version.
