Excellent BHA exfoliator

5

I bought the full size bottle of this having been impressed with the results I got while trying it out after buying the travel size. I have fairly sensitive skin but didn't experience any irritation with this, which is what I had been afraid of as I had never tried a chemical exfoliator before. I started off using it every other day and quickly moved up to once a day before feeling confident enough to use it in both my morning and evening routines. My skin feels really soft and smooth and a little goes a long way too so the bottle will last for ages, which makes this much better value than it first seems. I have oily skin which can be prone to redness and breakouts but my skin has improved significantly. My pores are less visible and I have seen a reduction in both redness and breakouts, particularly on my cheeks. My chin is definitely less congested as well and I have found that my makeup has been going on better and looking more polished. I have had quite a few compliments on my skin recently which surprised me as although I had noticed an improvement I didn't expect anyone else to notice! I am going to keep using this on a daily basis and think I might try out some of the travel sizes of the stronger BHAs from the other Paula's Choice ranges for use on my most difficult areas like my nose and chin to see if it makes any difference to give those areas a bit of a boost. Unlike some other reviewers I don't find this at all greasy, but I use only a small amount on a cotton pad and find it does my whole face. In summary I love this and feel it has noticeably improved my skin. I use it in the morning after washing my face with Vichy Normaderm or La Roche Posay Effaclar facial wash and I follow it up with the PC super light antioxidant serum and the PC tinted moisturiser SPF 30 which are also both from the Resist range. In the evening I double cleanse with cleansing oil from DHC or Simple, then my Vichy Normaderm or LRP Effaclar facial washes, then swipe this on before the PC serum and finish with LRP Effeclar Duo+. Works for me.

Great product

This works really well for refining my skin prior to beginning my skincare routine. This is my second bottle of this and I will continue to use. Works well on my combination skin.

Love it!

I found out about Paula's Choice online whilst looking for an affordable (not "cheap") but effective skin clearing treatment. I have been blessed with generally good skin, which I have taken the bare minimum care of (I will no doubt regret that!), but got to 32 & rapidly developed hormonal acne, primarily on my chin but also patches elsewhere. I tried many "natural" remedies, & was already using an AHA (didn't know that's what it was at the time). After about 3 months of my natural approaches making no difference whatsoever I gave in & went to the doctor, who gave me lymecycline, I took these for 4 full months, to ensure it had all gone & so far I have been off them for 2 full months & nothing other than the occasional pimple, like normal people! If you look directly on the Paula's Choice website she talks specifically about hormonal acne & that essentially no amount of good skincare will cure it, you need medication, that being said, good skincare will aid the clear out & recovery process to make the best of a bad situation. Having stopped the spots from coming with the antibiotics, this BHA was then really able to do its job, & it has done a brilliant job!! When a pimple does think about coming usually it will be gone by morning after using this (I use morning & night but do what suits your skin, start with once a day build up to twice & if it doesn't like it take back to once!) or if it does fully come to a head it does it's thing & is gone again within days, much better!! My skin feels lovely to the touch, & all the horrible marks from the acne are almost gone! I now wear no makeup, I used to wear foundation just "because", not that I really needed it, now, I want my skin to breath & be fresh & speak for me, not cover it up! My skin is not "perfect" don't get me wrong, but I've realised no ones is & mine is now pretty darn good & I want to show it off!!! Note: I cleanse morning & night & then use this BHA on a cotton pad, 2 dabs is plenty, I started with 4 which was completely unnecessary & I used it up much too quickly, now doing 2 twice a day I would expect it to last at least 2 months, possibly 3, I'm already 1 month in on my new bottle & easily have at least half, probably more left! Hope this helps!!

it's okay

It does clean your skin well even after I have already cleaned it with a make-up remover etc. but I did not notice any difference in the size of my pores. Also it leaves sticky feel on the skin.

Great product so far

4

So far this stuff is amazing, I just started a few days ago but noticed a glow rather then oily skin like it used to look without using this! It's too early to give it 5 stars but I actually can't wait to remove my makeup at night and apply this following with my moisturizer. I'm 26 with oily acne prone skin and the apperance of my skin looks better!

Amazing, just be patient

5

I thought I had pretty ok/good skin until I started using this, and I started to see the gunk falling out of my pores after washing my face morning and evening. Seriously, it's amazing the difference it's made! My underlying skin is so so much better that I sometimes skip foundation, something I would never ever have considered in a million years before. The only thing I can advise is a little patience. It took 3 weeks of daily use before I saw results. I was just starting to berate myself for wasting money on another unnecessary product when a few pores deeper than several oceans opened up and I wondered how all of that had been underneath my skin with only a tiny black dot at the surface! However, due to the anti-inflammatory properties of BHA it didn't even become a big deal, just dried up and healed very quickly. I cannot praise this stuff highly enough (just give it time to work! I nearly didn't)

Amazing

5

I have been using this day and night for a few weeks and all spots and little bumps have dissapeared. Amazing stuff! It doesn't dry out my skin or sting like some spot cleansers can.

Fabulous brightening treatment

5

Despite regularly using grainy exfoliants my skin was still feeling and looking dull until discovering this. I have sensitive combination skin and this feels super gentle but really helps skin to glow since adding it into my skincare routine. I also love how it's cruelty free and doesn't contain alcohol or any harsh ingredients like many BBQ exfoliants do.

Good BHA product

4

Reading about BHA, I was afraid of purging and all the irritation associated with BHA products. Thankfully this does not. Very comfortable on my skin. I need to use it for a longer period of time to see great improvement but it already has a good start. The price is good too. Happy purchase for me.

Must have

5

Again I have used this products for 5 months plus,i am on my third bottle and I have two backups. This products exfoliates deeply to reveal a cleanskin,my pores are invisible,the texture of skin has improved so much. Bearing in mind that I use a lot of PC products to address my skin concerns which are breakouts, old acne marks, antiaging, smile lines and wrinkles. I have it all lol. Seriously this is money well spent. I do not need a makeup primer to smoothen my face, I now only use a mattifier. It is worth investing in skincare especially this line. You will not be disappointed
