Transformed my skin
SampledPurchased

I had never tried a liquid exfoliant before but what the heck, it was in the box and I'm so happy I gave it a chance. I just bought the full size because it's become part of my routine. I had enlarged pores on/around my nose, oily t-zone, tendency to have occasional acne, and uneven skin tone. Sometimes I would have dry, flaky areas too. Using this exfoliant has improved every single one of those problems without causing any sensitivity. It's had an almost "airbrushing" effect on my 39 year old skin. My skin is softer, clearer, less oily, more even-toned and my pores appear much smaller than before. Thank you Birchbox for introducing me to it!

Lovely
Sampled

I have somewhat sensitive skin that dries out very quickly, so I was a little wary of this product. After trying it I was very pleased, though! It was gentle on my skin but still helped clean up blackheads. I've also dabbed some on a cotton ball and held it to blemishes to help get rid of them faster. It seems to help.
It doesn't leave my face dry or red like many salicylic acid products do, but it does give me all the benefits I miss from them.

Glowing Skin

I love this product and credit it to finally resolving my acne. I still was having some breakouts here and there. I received this in my sample box and my husband noticed how glowing and smooth my skin was. His response? "Buy a bottle of that stuff immediately." I'm in 30's and have used accutane twice. I use this product all over my neck and face. Its clean, smooth & silky. Just a little bit goes a long way.

Amazing
Sampled

I was able to eliminate close to three acne products with this one item. My face cleansing routine is so much shorter and my skin is really improving (have on and off acne issues and have combination skin). I will most certainly be purchasing this item when this runs out - and a little goes a long way. Just a few drops rubbed between your fingers and patted into my skin.

Seems like my black heads are easily removed and my skin is less prone to break outs. Amazing product.

It actually works
Sampled

I was skeptical, but used this on my freshly-washed face and woke up to a more evenly toned complexion and no trace of a pimple. Doesnt leave a residue. Maybe its my imagination, but I think it actually worked well!

Love this for combo skin
Purchased

I have combo to oily skin with adult acne and I was looking for a retinol alternative while I was pregnant, and omg I can’t believe it took me 30 some years to find something like this. It keeps my dry skin moisturized and my oily skin drier. It works great to exfoliate after a few days use so it really helped with my acne. I could use it with or without a moisturizer, that’s how well it hydrates, without over doing it. After my pregnancy I stuck with this and ditched my retinol.

The best.
Sampled

This stuff is simply the best. You can really tell how much grime you’re getting off your face with pads. It gives a clean feeling after too.

This was a good product. I have oily skin so exfoliants do wonders for me. This product wasn’t too harsh on my sensitive skin it left me with an exhilarating glow !

Essential Product!
Purchased

I’ve used this 2% BHA liquid for years, probably since PC first came out with it. I have sensitive skin, but this doesn’t irritate my skin at all. My skin feels smoother and looks clearer when I use it regularly. Highly recommend.
