Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant (118ml)

Description

Achieve flawless skin with Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, an exfoliating fluid fortified with salicylic acid to help renew skin and minimise pores.

Absorbing quickly into the skin, the leave-on exfoliant targets both the skin's surface and deep down, sloughing away dulling dead skin cells whilst penetrating inside the pore to reshape and unclog deep within. Redness and blemishes are addressed and reduced.

Its lightweight texture delivers deep exfoliation and increases cell turnover so skin looks renewed and radiant with a more even tone. Salicylic acid harnesses antioxidant properties and increases collagen production; the appearance of wrinkles are reduced and skin feels firmer, healthier.

Expect renewed skin with improved appearance, texture and function. Protected, fortified and healthy. - K.N.

Suitable for all skin types, especially normal, oily or combination.

Non-irritating and 100% fragrance free. Not tested on animals.

IMPORTANT: Those allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) should not use products containing salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid).

Product Details

Brand:
  • Paula's Choice
Range:
  • Skin Perfecting
Directions:
    • Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning.
    • Lightly soak a cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids).
    • Do not rinse.
    • For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater.

    BHA Advice:
    To reduce skin flaking or possible irritation, some first-time users should use the BHA once a day or once every other day (preferably at night) for the first few weeks. After prolonged use (4-6 weeks), you can apply the BHA more frequently, and eventually it can be used twice a day. For some people it may only be necessary to use the BHA once a day or once every other day. The frequency of use for this BHA product completely depends on how your skin reacts so you may have to experiment until you find what works best for you. If redness, dryness, or irritation occurs, adjust frequency of application.

Excellent Product for a Healthy Glow

5

Some background: I have normal/combination skin with minimal blackheads around my nose and T-zone and also some occasions of breakouts. I do not have sensitive skin and almost never get any adverse reaction to any products (disclaimer: I don't switch products that often as well). I started using this product since April for 5 months now. My skin condition is generally good, but this product has made it even better. My skin looks more glow-y than before and appearance of blemishes and blackheads seem to be less obvious. It has definitely made my skin "behave" better as I have only gotten 1 breakout since using this product vs. the usual 3 or so. If you have or used to have acne problem, I highly recommend this. I use this after cleansing for 1-2 times a day.

This has helped to change my skin!

4

I have combination skin - a little oily on the nose and a slightly oily chin, but normal elsewhere. I've had spots my ENTIRE life, several a week, worse with my period. If I went a week with no spots, it was rare. I also have 4 or 5 stubborn deep pores on my nose. I've been using this BHA for over a year now in conjunction with a whole new Paula's Choice skincare routine - cleanser, toner, this exfoliater, serum, eyecream, moisturiser (with spf). This BHA requires some practice to use it effectively. A little goes a long way. I tip a few drops, maybe 10 or less, onto a flat cotton pad and wipe over my entire face, after cleansing and toning. It does take a while to sink in/dry but you'll know if you've put on too much - it can be a little greasy/oily feeling. It reminds me very much of vinegar, it has that same acidic smell, but it's not unpleasant. I initially got this to try to remove the pores on my nose, which look darker although do not have blackheads in them. They have reduced in size a little since using this, however more incredibly, my skin is soooo smooth now, and I DON'T GET SPOTS!!! I have had 5 spots in a year since using the BHA. I love it for that fact alone. My skin is better at 40 than it has ever been and I've just repurchased another bottle, even better now I've discovered the considerable difference in price from Look Fantastic compared to Paula's website (and all the awesome discount codes online). It loses a star purely because my pores have not gone totally from my nose, and I feel I should have seen more of an improvement on them. Only BHAs can exfoliate inside the pore and are oil soluble, so can reduce pore size, therefore reducing oil production, which should have meant MY pores got a lot smaller than they have.

WOW. I can't recommend this enough. I am 52 never had spots in my life. Then hormonal changes, skin total mess with spots. This sorted my skin out within 2 weeks. Did get worse before it got better but I expected that. Thank you Paula.

Bought this upon recommendation from Beauty expert Nadine Baggot. I've only been using this product for a short while but the difference is noticeable after first use. Skin feels and looks smoother and complexion has a radiant glow. Will definitely repurchase.

It works

5

It changed my skin very rapidly, made it much more even in texture and colour. I am now alternating it with tretinoin cream 0.5%. If this gets to much for my skin I will stick with just Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, as it is a better product for my skin.

A product that lives up to it claims, exfoliation without the additional need of face scrubs. I tend to place in palms and pat on rather than use with a cotton pad. Surprisingly long lasting. Great product will continue to buy.

Face lifting, Pore reducing, but OVERMOISTURISE!

4

Been using this for a few weeks and can already see a massive difference in my skin. (Using in line with an Asian Skincare Routine) It actually has given me a face-lifting Botox type effect, skin feels very taut. Has also reduced the visibility of my pores! My skin tone also looks brighter and more even. That said, it's a MUST to flush your face with moisture, as this is an acid treatment! Use a hydraulic even! (You may notice peeling of the old skin cells perhaps near the nose area) also to ease un comfortability of the tightness. It applies slightly oily but is absorbed. Definitely see this becoming a staple. Buy the big bottle if you already have salicylic acid in your routine. I'd advise not to stop using if you break out a little at first, as this happened to me for first few days but I strongly believe in skin-training and the effects after several weeks usage is WORTH a couple breakouts as your skin gets used to it. I have Combination-Dry skin.

Transformed my skin

5

This has made my pores tiny and has really helped with my acne prone skin. The only thing I would say that it has had a drying effect on my skin so I do find that I now need to layer my skin with good moisturises for dry skin. I have found the Eucerin dry skin relief to be best. I highly recommend this to anyone who like me has spent a lot of time and money trying to find something that works for unpredictable skin. This works.

This product really is amazing. Have been using it for 2 weeks and have really seen an improvement in my skin. I suggest this liquid form above the gel and lotion

Must have for blemish prone skin

5

I have rated this product excellent as it really get down to the pores to clean them out to reveal a healthy glowing skin. Again this product has improved my skin, I also use the resist bha on alternate days and I love both products. This exfoliant is more effective than the resist bha due to the PH Level. However the resist one has more antiaging ingredients reason for using both. I have bought a back up in the Black Friday deals.

Awesome

5

Awesome, excellent, amazing product. Got in a sample set. Sat on the shelf for months until one day, thought I would give it a try. Wow. Now I use everyday. My skin is brighter and feels more balanced. I have sensitive skin, and it does sting a little. A bit more than a tingle. And a bit pricey too. But overall, a five-star product in my routine.

great acid toner/chemical exfoliant!

5

Great exfoliant! If you're not used to chemical exfoliants (BHA or AHA) and/or your skin is sensitive DO NOT use everyday at first. You might only need to used this once or twice a week and increase if you notice any breakouts (which is what I usually do). Better suited for combination/oily skin prone to acne/breakouts, but gentle enought for other skin type (my skin is normal).
