Lovely but not strong enough for me!
I have combo-oily skin with some blackheads around my nose, and visible pores to the side of my nose onto my cheeks which is what I wanted to address with this product. I use it after cleansing, let it sit for 20-30 minutes as is normal for a chemical exfoliator, then proceed with the rest of my routine. It has done nothing for me, which is both a good and a bad thing! Bad, because obviously I still have the same problem to address. Good, because I had no adverse reaction (please bear in mind though my skin is not very sensitive). I have now ordered The Paula’s Choice BHA as I feel that may suit me better.
I don’t like to leave reviews without giving any product a fair trial first as I don’t think it’s helpful, so I can say that after using around 75% of the bottle I won’t be repurchasing, as much as I wanted to love this gentle product it just doesn’t suit me. For that reason I can say that I WOULD recommend it to anyone with dry/sensitive skin or if you’re new to BHA exfoliants. It’s a gentler formulation than other products in the same category so the reasons it doesn’t work for me could be the reasons it’s perfect for you.
Rated 5* as my issues with this weren’t due to any problems with the product itself, just lack of suitability. Also because super gentle BHA products are generally underrepresented in this area of the skincare market so it’s great to see something available for people who can’t use regular BHA products.
