Not great for my dry skin
from Sydney AU
About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 118 ml:
This product was not goof for my dry skin. I went for it over the AHA as it promised to help reduce pore size AND wrinkles and I have enlarged pores left over from when I was a teenager with oily skin. The 2% BHA left my skin irritated and more dry. I can imagine it would be good for people with oily skin or breakouts though. I've since bought the 10% AHA which I use once or twice a week and find that much better for dry skin.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good but not great
I use this as part of my nighttime routine after cleansing and toning, before moisturiser and treatment.I dispense a small amount into my hands and pat it into my skin as I find trying to apply this with a cotton pad uses a lot of product and doesn't feel like it spreads properly on the skin. It leaves a slightly sticky feel to my face so I wouldn't want to put make up on top of it in the mornings.I suffer from sebaceous filaments around my nose and chin and was hoping this would rid me of them. It helps to reduce their size and make my skin smoother but doesn't completely get rid of them on it's own.I use PCs Skin Balancing Oil Reducing Mask twice a week which clears out my pores far more efficiently, then use this in between to help keep them clear.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I reallyyy wanted to love this product. Unfortunately, it hasn't done anything for my skin! I thought maybe it was because I hadn't used it for long enough, but now I've practically finished the bottle and my skin looks exactly the same as it did before.Would not recommend!

This stuff is amazing! Incorporated it by itself to my skin care routine and it's made such a change. My skin looks clearer and more even. Love this.Only negative would be it did make my face oily sometimes - but that may just be to me not moisturising properly after its use.
I notice a difference in my skin when i dont use this
About Me Beauty Conscious, Minimalist
I can really notice a difference in my skin when I skip using this product for a few days. This helps my skin become so much more clear to the point that I dont have blackheads anymore. When my skin is feeling clogged I use this and in 2 days I instantly see a difference. I find that this product works better when you pat it into your skin using your hands after toner however it does sometimes sting my face and the stinging sensation goes away after I apply a serum. I have easily congested skin and this product is something I will always repurchase.

Fantastic for clearing keratosis pilaris
About Me Minimalist
I'm 38 with good skin, but suffer from keratosis pilaris on the backs of my arms. I have had it for about 20 years. I have tried various methods over the years, such as hot showers, scrubbing, moisturising, sugar scrubs, salt scrubs, apple cider vinegar, to try and control or eliminate it without success, UNTIL i tried this wonderful liquid exfoliant. Cooler showers are also key.I use it almost daily (daily seems to work best for me) using a cotton pad and swipe the the backs of my arms with it after a shower. I could not believe how well it worked, but it did! If i use it regularly my arms are smooth, practically bump free and even toned - redness gone! Consistent use is key though, otherwise without the exfoliation the bumps do come back.I also use it on my face before moisturising and my skins texture, fine lines and skin-tone are greatly improved. It glows and looks so healthy and smooth. LOVE IT!I love this product. Definitely works for me. Thank you.
Pros and a Con
I think it would be best suited for oily and younger skin. Would not recommend to over 50's. It does make your skin feel smoothe!
Made my skin pink.
from Brisbane, AU
About Me Beauty Conscious, Beauty Expert
I've bought this before years ago and it would turn my skin a bit pink when first applying however it really worked to exfoliate my pores and fixed my breakouts. I wish this didn't irritate my skin. I recently got a sample and it turned my skin pink again. Oh well. Might try the calm 1% BHA lotion exfoliant. Hopefully it's not heavy for my oily skin.
I really love Paula's choice exfoliators and have been using them for years. Best on the market. I like this BHA liquid but it is slightly annoying to apply with cotton pads. I feel like I use more of the product when applying with the cotton pad as it is expensive if you don't buy on sale. Plus I already use a cotton pad to apply toner and I cant really be bothered to buy cotton pads more often to apply toner and exfoliant. So I get the BHA gel instead. If you want a light as water BHA but don't mind doubling your use of cotton pads then go for it.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
I honestly cannot praise this product enough!I've been using it twice daily for over a month now and the difference in my skin right from the very first use has been incredible.I use this product in combination with a weekly application of the Resist 10% AHA and I find this works so well for me.My skin is much softer, looks far more refined on a whole and is glowing - something that I've not experienced before.I've had so many compliments from people (including strangers) on how good it looks. They all have a hard time believing that these results have been achieved at home!I've tried so many other products and brands over the years, but nothing has even come close.Tips:Skip the cotton pad and apply it straight from the bottle as you would a moisturiser, so there's no wastage (it also makes my hands feel like a dream).I follow application with a good moisturiser, as I do find that my skin can feel a little tight on occasion.
