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. The formula works to calm redness and rosacea and is strong enough to dislodge the most stubborn blackheads and degrease pores down to their oiliest depths. While BHA is the star on the antiacne and antibacterial front, green tea extract helps soothe skin with reparative antioxidants.
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!5
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.
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.5
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!4
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.
I wanted to love this product based on others reviews. The product itself is good however, I didn't see any dramatic changes in my skin texture and it did not decrease the appearance of large pores on my face. It did help lighten discoloration and acne scars.4
I recently found out that I have a slight case of rosacea. I purchased this product as an attempt to counteract some of the redness on my face. It works really well. It feels great on my skin after a good cleansing. My only critique is I wish it had a nice scent. As far as I can tell it's completely scentless.4
If you have doubts about whether your skin could be beautiful, TRY THIS! I have never felt so confident and comfortable in my skin! I seriously would pay twice as much for this product. If I accidentally run out or forget to order in time and have to go several days without, I am literally on the verge of tears. I have always had problem skin.. acne, blotchiness, blackheads, ugh.. Over time my acne and blackheads have disappeared. I don't break out anymore! On a daily basis, my skin is so radiant and glowing!! I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED SO MANY COMPLIMENTS ON MY SKIN, EVER!! I just turned 30, and I feel like this product makes me look so much younger. I have been using this for 2 years and I will continue to use this product for the rest of my life. It is truly amazing, if you are reading this review, trying to make a decision on whether or not to purchase, then please, PLEASE do. You will not regret it. Truly an amazing gift, thank you Paula's Choice!!!!!!5
After trying it once I saw a shine to my face. It doesn't have a strong smell, and I see results for using a toner the first time.5
If I could only choose one skincare product it would be this. I have used this for a year now and my skin has never been this clear or soft. I have started to incorporate other products from her line and I have also seen great results. I would highly recommend looking into the whole Paula's Choice line.5
