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.) 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.

I didn't notice a difference using this product, but I do have problem skin so perhaps it's meant for a different skin type.

It made my skin too greasy, I hated it. It's too slimy for me.

Beware of reaction
Sampled

I have no allergies to any products, yet this made my face bright red and itchy. I had to wash it off after 5 minutes

This left a weird residue on my skin. I also have somewhat sensitive skin and it made it feel red and irritated.

Not so great
Sampled

I was really excited to try this product. I am currently looking for a new exfoliant to use on a regular basis. However, I was extremely disappointed with this product. First of all, it smells a bit like nail polish remover. Additionally, the product left my skin feeling greasy.

Irritated my skin
Sampled

I have a very sensitive and dry complexion, so this just didn't work for me. It stung, made my skin feel really dry and stretched, and I ended up washing it off. Not so great if you have dry skin.

This did not minimize my pores, and gave me whiteheads.
