Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

You can think of BHA as salicylic acid's dapper nom de plume—the two ingredients are one and the same. With blemish-busting and collagen-producing properties, it gives you clear skin as the powerhouse ingredient in this liquid exfoliant. The formula works to dislodge the most stubborn blackheads and degrease pores down to their oiliest depths. But, don't worry, it's also gentle enough to calm rosacea and soothe skin with green tea extract's reparative antioxidants.

I Don't Get It
Sampled

I use an exfoliant nearly every day. Of the kind that has chunks in it and feels like its removing dead skin. I don't know what this stuff does. It felt more like a toner...that burned.

Not for sensitive skin..
Sampled

This was harsh on my sensitive skin. My cheeks had red patches on them after using this product that lasted for days. I also didn't notice any minimizing of my pores.

Wanted to love this product...
Sampled

I didn't notice any difference in my skin after using this product consistently. I wanted it to work for my skin as this seemed perfect. Unfortunately, it did not.

Not a fan

This tingled a little in a bad way. I don't like liquid exfoliants as a general rule.

Maybe I'm an Anomaly?

I have tried to use this on my T-zone 3 times now in the hopes to help clear blackheads and whiteheads but everytime that I put the product on my face becomes incredibly itchy and red blotches appear. Everyone else seems to love the effects of this product so I assume that I must just be an anomaly?

Ehh... There's nothing too special about this product but I do like it. Just not something I'd spend money on.

Super Shiny
Sampled

I honestly did not even get a chance to really try this product. Every time I put it on, my skin would be shinier than a disco ball. Even if I put it on the night before, I would still have oily looking skin throughout the day. So, I would just take it off and use something else.
