Paula's Choice Clear Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid (118ml)

Description

Treat acne or blemish prone skin to Paula's Choice Clear Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid, an exfoliating fluid fortified with  
BHA to help renew skin, combat redness, and penetrate deeper into the pores than the 'Regular' solution for maximum clarification.

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 further into the pore to reshape and unclog deep within. Redness and blemishes are targeted and blackheads and acne are immediately reduced. The formula targets imperfections and expertly unclogs pore so skin feels clarified, calmed and smooth.

Its water-light texture delivers deep exfoliation without irritating the skin; enlarged pores decrease for a smoother, more refined complexion and redness from acne lesions looks noticeably better. Salicylic acid harnesses antioxidant properties so skin feels healthy and protected.

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

Blemish-prone skin.

Non-irritating and 100% fragrance free. No added dyes. Not tested on animals.

IMPORTANT: Do not use if you are allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) or its derivatives.

Really effective treatment

5

This is really effective at clearing up minor outbreaks and unsightly bumps on skin. I was getting persistent spots on my chest and after a week of using am & pm, there has been a noticable improvement. My skin is much clearer and smoother. It's great that there's a trial size available, which I used to check it didn't irritate my skin before purchasing full size.

This stuff is unreal! Used it once and overnight my uneven skin tone and red patches had reduced to almost nothing. With in a week of using it morning and night all my spots had cleared. With in a month of using it my stubborn white heads that I've had for years had cleared!

Great product but the packaging doesn't travel well

4

I have horrible skin, I have eczema so it's easily irritated and very dry/flakey and I have PCOS which = horrible acne that could only be controlled by the contraceptive pill. I've been using this and Effaclar by La Roche-Posay daily (Effaclar twice a day before moisuriser and this once a day after my night cleanse) for 3 months and my skin is the clearest it has been in years. I'm not on the pill and I am amazed at how clear it is. I get the odd spot - once every 4 weeks or so but they are normal spots rather than massive horrible cystic spots that scar (I used to get one every 2 days). My skin is generally smoother, under the skin spots are gone. I was worried about my eczema being aggravated but my skin is well under control, I've had no eczema breakouts and my skin is not any drier. The product itself I would give 5 stars but I've knocked one star off for poor packaging, it's doesn't travel well. I popped it in my suitcase for a weekend away and it leaked everywhere- at the time I wasn't sure it was this causing the leaking and the next time put it in a plastic bag and the same thing happened so I knew it was the culprit. I thought maybe the one I had was faulty but tried it with a different bottle and the same thing happened (the mini travel ones leak too). As this has really cleared up my skin, I don't want to travel without it so I guess I'm going to have to try and decante it. It's the only negative to an otherwise great product. Well worth the price but please change the packaging?

Great product!

4

I love this product! I've been using this product for two weeks now and my skin has never felt so soft and smooth! I was having problems with a couple of spots and an annoying acne cyst, but after only a couple of days using this (twice a day) all my spots were gone. My acne scars have also almost completely faded. I had oily skin prior to using this product, but my skin is now more combination, as it does dry out my chin and nose a bit, so I now just make sure to use more moisturiser on those areas!

Best smoothing agent

5

You have to use this religiously to get the best effect! I used mine every night for three months long and now everybody praises how smooth my skin is!!! My skin type is combination, no wrinkle (yet), and acne prone. Now I have less pores, almost no acne scars and THIS just smoothens my whole face. I had little bumps (from irritation or dirts whatsoever) and this product gradually erased them. However you have to stop using it after your skin has improved because it has a tendency to dry out your skin if used excessively. Mine lasts more than a year because I do not use it when I don't have to. Overall this is my holy grail in skincare routine. And Lookfantastic got it on a cheap price and always on stock!

Will definitely purchase again

5

This is a really nice, gentle yet effective acid. Glycolic acid can make me red and blotchy and doesn't really tackle the hormonal spots I get around my chin but this has been fantastic and I haven't had any angry spots AT ALL since I started using it and I usually get a couple a week at least. I've been using it every other night and my skin is noticeably clearer. I would certainly recommend and will be buying again.

5 Star Product

This has been working an absolute treat on my skin. From the second or third use could see a noticeable difference in the appearance of my skin. If you suffer with problematic skin I can not recommend this enough, Grab your self a bottle to try.

Amazing!

I'm using Paula's BHA since a few years now and I can't imagine going without it. It soothes my skin and heals my breakouts. I love the not too strong peeling effect and that it cleans out my pores.

Good product

4

I tried the regular strength trial size and really loved it but I had some stubborn clogged pores on my forehead so thought I would try the extra strength. This one works just as well as the regular strength but is slightly greasy. Other than that it's a really good product.

Non irritating formula

4

So far so good. I am very impressed with how non irritating this product is. Plus it works great under makeup. At first it starts out with a bit of a greasy texture but it quickly sets into the face and leaves the face with a nice glow. I find that my pores are quite a bit smaller. I will definitely repurchase.
