Stay vigilant against clogged pores with Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner.

Paula's Choice

Birchbox Breakdown

You can think of BHA as salicylic acid’s dapper nom de plume. (The two ingredients are one and the same.) Whatever you call it, BHA is a clinically proven blemish-buster with the added bonus of increasing collagen production for smoother skin. Not only that, but it’s the powerhouse ingredient behind this nonirritating liquid. Consider it a win for redness, blackheads, and acne alike.

How it Works

We love how this liquid calms redness and rosacea, all while being strong enough to dislodge the most stubborn blackheads and degrease pores down to their oiliest depths. BHA is the star on the antiacne and antibacterial front, while green tea extract helps soothe skin with repairing antioxidants.

How to Use

Depending on your exfoliating needs, apply once or twice daily to cleansed and toned skin with a cotton ball or pad. Do not rinse.

I like it..

I like to receive products like this in my box, i love skin care items. it is too soon to tell if it works well but the texture and smell are good, not overwhelming and it feels nice on my skin.

I have started using this type of product in the last year and love the difference it makes on my skin. Will see how this one compares after I finish the sample but the price is good.

I tried this product as soon as I received it in my Birch Box!! I loved it, but be sure to follow up with a moisturizer. The no rinse is such a time saver and water saver too!!!! It definitely works on your pores and I am looking forward to not seeing mine in the very near future!!! Thanks!!

This product wasn't my favorite from Birchbox so far. I didn't notice much of a difference in tone evening, but I have only used it for 4 days so far. After putting it on my skin felt like it had a little film over it. Maybe after using it a bit longer I will like it better.
