Additional Information

Why is it different?
A unique leave-on formula that’s gentle enough for daily use on all skin types. Exfoliates dead skin cells while clearing pores for a more even, radiant tone, plus visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles to reveal remarkably smoother, younger-looking skin.

This exfoliant has an optimal pH range of 3.2–3.8.

What does it do?
Gently exfoliates built-up layers of dead skin, just like your skin did naturally when you were younger. It also effectively unclogs pores, optimising skin renewal and clarity for remarkably smoother, perfect-looking skin, smaller pores, a refined texture, and less visible lines and wrinkles. You will see results the first time you use it!
Collapse
How to use
Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Lightly soak a cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 15 or greater.

Not convinced on product, awful packaging and shipment

Best Uses

    I have used it every second day the last three days and my skin has started breaking out in under the skin bumps, may be too soon to know if its solely this product but a disappointing start after a disastrous shipping experience.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Ok so I was so excited to receive this product so naturally I was disappointed that the shipping was delayed three days, but ah well this happens I moved on. However, when it arrived I think at least a third of the product had leaked through the plastic seal! It was so weird, almost like the product had been half unscrewed when packed. Still, I had waited three days longer tan expected and wasn't aware quite how much product had leaked so decided to give the product a chance anyway.

      Love this product
      Wish I found this sooner
      First 2 days of use it improved my skin tone
      My skin was patchy and dry around the cheeks
      After 2 days of use, the dry skin started to come off leaving my skin very smooth.
      Note: do not use too much of this lotion, it will irritate your skin

      My order was lost.
      I contacted the Customer Service Team after the 4th week and the sent a replacement.

      I apply it every night with a cotton pad. Ever since i have used it my acne has improved, it reduces inflammation very well and my skin is so much smoooother!

      Although I noticed when you put a little too much or on a dry spot it may sting so i keep it away from my dry cheeks and use minimal amounts, about 5 drops.

      Service and delivery comments:

      VERY quick delivery. One day to arrive in warehouse, arrived the next afternoon.

      • Stubborn Pimples
      • Uneven Skin Tone

      I get reoccurring pimples that just wouldn't go away. I even started taking antibiotics to see if that would help. But after using this product just for 4 days, it changed everything! My signature red skin finally diminished and those stubborn pimples went away quicker than when I was taking antibiotics! I only use the product at night though as it can be slightly heavy and not really ideal to try and get makeup to set on properly. When I wake up in the morning my skin is so hydrated and soft. Seriously can't contain my amazement!

        • Daily Use
        • Uneven Skin Tone

        This is my absolute morning must-have to ensure my skin stays smooth and clear. And when I tag team it with a nightly retinol serum, I always get compliments on my glowing, healthy skin. When I stop using it my skin starts looking dull again and that pesky perimenopause acne starts creeping back in.

          Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 118 ml:

          Where was this product when I was growing up? I've been using this product religiously since Paula's products became available in Australia (having been a fan of her books when I lived in the US). I alter the frequency of usage depending on how my skin feels and what other products I've been using. If I run out or slack off using it I can really tell because the rosacea bumps and pimples return. I alternate with Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a Paula's product to help with the redness but, my skin is smooth, soft and pimple free.

          Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 118 ml:

          I use this most nights, only skipping when my skin is feeling super sensitive. Im on my second bottle and used to use cotton pads to apply, but now I find my fingertips work it in better and wastes less product. You can tell when I slack off with this product, my pores are so much smaller and smoother, my skin glows and is smooth as heck

            Comments about 2% BHA Liquid - 118 ml:

            I started using this product about 2 months ago. It's have a few spots on my forehead that get red and flakey. The area around my nose also gets very flakey and dry. I haven't been able to control these issues with any product or moisturiser including steroid creams. This product has solved all of my dry skin issues. I use it every night before bed. I have enlarged pores on my nose and chin and it has slightly reduced those but not by much which was a bit disappointing though. Overall this product is very good and definitely much better and more effective than using harsh, damaging scrubs.

                I used this product at night and the 8%aha exfoliant in the morning and it has lifted my deep blackheads and brought them to the surface of my skin for a much easy removal. After a week using I have seen an amazing improvement and highly recommend this product. I've tried way too many other blackhead treatments as well as pore strips and nothing compares to this.
