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).
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.

I've been using this product for over a year now and it's now an integral part of my beauty routine. I have dry skin that used to be prone to breakouts, but after using the BHA liquid for a few weeks (just of an evening, after I've cleansed & before I moisturise) my skin cleared. After over a year of use, my skin tone is definitely more even and my face is always super soft! Thanks for stocking such a great product.

since I've begun using their formula, my skin is the clearest. It's like I'm 9 years old again. it can be quite dehydrating sometimes, so alternate use.

Probably one of the most effect and reasonably priced product I have ever bought. The whole range is infact fantastic.
Does everything it says on the label and the difference is extremely noticeable in a week. Pores are definitely small, less breakouts, skin looks smoother and improves in balance.
Worth every penny

Wonderful product, really helping to clear up my skin and shrink poor size.
During the first week of using the product your skin will peel, become flaky, afterwards you will honestly find your skin to be a lot smoother and brighter.

I can't believe how well this works. I'd been having these annoying little bumps on my forehead for months, I used this product once (!) and the next morning the bumps are as good as gone! My skin looks better and clearer, I'm a fan!

A fantastic product which has transformed my skin. My skincare regime works so well, I use an oil or balm to cleanse and use a good serum and moisturiser. My skin was good, but with this product as an addition...just once at night after cleansing, my skin is great! Clear, pores minimised. Would highly recommend!

I see a big difference already after couple of days. Worth the money.

great product. though I think that next time I will try the Gel version. seems like it will be easier to use.

To begin with I had a lot of grease spot on my forehead . This product helped me to weaken the upper epidermis. I have been used it for 4 weeks with peeling once a week. My face skin is so much cleaner, but I go on with this treatment until the packing runs out. All in all it has very good effect on my skin and it is not irritating it.

This is the one beauty product I could not live without! It keeps my acne-prone skin clear and silky. Love it!

If you're not a fan of scrubbing and exfoliating with texture this is great! Really smooths the skin and gives a fresh new texture. Makes you look younger and well rested. I highly recommend this.
Careful not to use too much or it just sits on your skin making you feel greasy. Just enough to wet a cotton pad and sweep over your face. If you stick with this for a week or two the difference is incredible. You have a smooth fresh and glowing base. I will use this forever!
I am giving it 4 stars only as I prefer the Clear Regular Strength Exfoliating Liquid having tried both. The difference is the delivery system, the Clear Regular strength having a lighter texture as well and it has prevented me from getting a single blemish since using it and it has cleared the ones I did have as well as fading the marks left from previous blemishes. HG status from me!

Highly recommend this product - it does what is says on the box!!
I have been using it for 3 weeks and my skin has improved so much.

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.

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.

this is amazing. i saw results the next day after using for the first time, and it keeps getting better and better. the best exfoliation for daily use. i'm going to need a supply of this from now on.

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 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.
Sun May 22 17:52:54 BST 2016 by
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.
