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.

Best I've ever had

5

This is literally the best product I've ever had. I only bought it because of the 2,300 reviews it had, never bought anything from paula's Choice and honestly it works. My forehead was full of tiny bumps/pimples and blackheads on my nose for years and in 2 weeks is almost 80% gone.

Genuinely saved my skin

I've struggled for years with skin problems. I couldn't even go out in the daylight because I was so embarrassed by my skin. This product genuinely saved my skin, I have no doubt about it. Thanks Paula's Choice!

I use this product at night after cleansing and before moisturizing. It only took a couple days to notice my skin getting more of a glow and it just keeps getting better! You go to bed and you wake up with nicer skin! So far I am loving this product.

Love this product more than the gel!

Love the Bha noticeable reduces acne, have used the gel since 2015 and decided to try the liquid for a change. SO GLAD I DID!!! the texture and application is FAR superior and doesn't feel sticky or heavy absorb into the skin in a few mins. As someone with oily skin I'm to the biggest fan of overly rich formulas as it feels too heavy and like it will clog pores. I've only been using this for a few days so am not sure if there is much difference in terms of results between the formulas. I was a bit weary about creating more rubbish with cotton rounds so instead pour a few drops into the palm of my freshly washed and air dried hands and pat over my entire face, neck and decollate.

Does what it claims

I have been using this product nightly for years now. I'm 65 years old & this is the best my skin has ever looked. And thats saying a lot. Pores so large people commented on them, as if I never noticed it before. My pores now are pretty much gone. Not sure when it happened, but this is one product I can't do with out.

Okay so, I have spent so much money and so many years trying to find products to help what was my acne riddled skin. Honestly my skin was so bad before this product that if I woke up and only had ten pimples I would consider it a clear skin day... not to mention the marks and scarring. So one day I started to use this product that my boyfriends, brothers, ex left behind and I used it once a day at night. All of a sudden my skin CLEARED!!!!! Cleared so much everyone commented. I stopped using it because that bottle ran out, skin became terrible again... purchased another bottle and BAMN better skin that I ever would have hoped in my acne days. It's been at least a good 5-6 years of struggle and this is the one single product that I can say WORKS! Never going to run out again. Give it a shot.

Can you use AHA and BHA together?

5

I have been using Paula's Choice skin perfecting AHA (8%) which I love (incredible product!) but am looking at introducing a BHA product into my routine as well. Can I use AHA and BHA together at night time? Perhaps AHA first followed by BHA 20mins later?
