    No more oily face!

    I was just about to give up hope after wasting too much money on useless products! Until I gave Paula's Choice a chance! I have a few products of Paula's Choice and everything has been incredible to reduce acne and smooth out skin. Quite affordable too!

    THIS product is my absolute favourite! Just after one night's use, my skin is smoother, fine lines are reduce and the oily skin I had been struggling with for years is gone! This is a miracle product!! A must have if you struggle with acne and oily skin.

    Holy grail

    I've seen this product all over articles, ads, YouTube videos etc and I've always been curious
    I bit the bullet a few weeks ago and purchased the travel size
    It was a bit pricey but I can already tell it's worth it and I can't live without it
    It's easy to use, apply it after you wash your face, let it dry down and apply moisturizer
    I have sensitive skin and ive had no issues using it twice a day everyday
    Makes my skin soft and glowy,pores are smaller

    Everyday toner

    A very easy everyday toner to keep pimples at bay and pores clear. I use a few drops on a (reusable) cotton pad every night before bed and have noticed the difference - the bottle lasts a long time and although I'm not 100% in love with the slight stickyness of the liquid, it dries very quickly and doesn't leave residues.

    Great exfoliator

    This is a great product. Like all the products from Paula's Choice. According to the producer you can apply it all over the face, but that is too harsh for my sensitive skin. I just use it for pimples. Everytime I get a bump on my face i apply a bit of product few times a day and the pimple is gone super fast.

    Skin transformer. Cleared my acne. No redness or larg pores

    PC BHA 2% literally cleared my skin. I Went from congested, reddened, inflamed oily acne skin with scarring and hyperpigmentation to brightened clear skin. After a few months my skin was completely clear. No pimples at all (also used PC clinical 1% retinol) Face is bright, even toned smooth and very soft. Now I never wear makeup. Only this exfoliator and SPF in mornings. My skins glows!!!
    2 years and 2 bottles later I'm still in love

    The thing that really drew me to this product was that it's supposed to really help with blackheads and clogged pores. Honestly, clogged pores really are the bane of my skincare existence and I've never found a product that has been able to rid me of them - Until now, that is. In the month that I've been using this product, I've seen a significant shift in my skin and those little white bumps that used to drive me crazy and be impossible to deal with have been starting to disappear more and more and I definitely attribute that to this product. I can also say that I think this product has diminished the appearance of my pores overall. Not gonna lie, I feel a little bit like my eyes have been opened in the last year or so to the wonders of BHA on my particular skin and this has been my favorite product that I've tried.

    I like to use a good amount of this on a cotton pad and start with my cheeks, where I get clogged pores, and then do my forehead and chin, avoiding the sensitive skin around my eyes. I follow this with a toner mist, and then serums and moisturizers as per my usual routine.

    One note that I will give is that I don't personally recommend using this twice a day, because I feel like it could overwhelm the skin a bit. Of course, this is just my opinion. I prefer to use this at night because I do find that it can make my skin look a little bit red right after I use it and I prefer to just take my skin to bed after that. And then in the morning? Skin looks great!

    I found out about Paula's Choice and this product in particular from online reviews (especially from https://www.reddit.com/r/skincareaddiction/). My skin can be so combination (sensitive, oily, dry, pores are enlarged in places and get clogged easily), so it's hard to find exfoliants that actually work without further irritating my skin.
    I've tried a few chemical type exfoliants in the past year or so and they worked well for a time, but this is the one I've been relying on for the past few months and actually feel like I'm making progress with my skin!
    I've been using this once a day, usually pm, after cleansing and before moisturizing. It does tend to leave a slight residue on my skin which is why I prefer using it at night (also because it can make your skin sensitive to the sun), but if I let it dry longer I'm sure it would be fine to use under makeup during the day, with a good SPF.
    Since I've been using the 2% BHA Liquid, my pores are much clearer and I don't have the same issues I used to with flaky, dry spots around my chin and nose. I still get some slight breakouts on my chin around my time of the month, but they are much less noticeable and go away faster.
    I love that this is so gentle and effective. My skin has improved so much while using it, and it's SO inexpensive as well! It's available in small foil packets, deluxe sample bottles or the full size, so it's easy to try out and see if it works before committing to the product (I bought a bunch of samples the first time just in case).
    I can't recommend Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid enough. I've tried a lot of decent exfoliants in the past while, but this one is by far my favourite! It's the easiest to use and has helped make my skin much healthier looking.

    This solution helped minimize the pores in my nose and cheeks - I was quite happy with it.

    It didn't have an odor or feel oily - it went on smooth and didn't tingle or sting like other exfoliants.

    Aside from redness, my skin texture is pretty good. Recently, I have been getting a few pimples on my forehead so decided to give this a try. It did not irritate my sensitive skin at all. The pimples looked a lot smaller just over night and my skin is smoother as well. Even though it's not a miracle cure for pimples, I will continue using it for the exfoliating properties.

    I used to get a cystic zit or two a month, and this has helped me completely get rid of them! It's also helped get rid of some closed comedones. The smell of the liquid is a little funky, a bit sulfur-ous, but it's not too bad and definitely worth it. It's also a bit pricey, but a bottle lasts for a long time, and you can wait for a good sale to go on before buying.
