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.

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?

The Best skin care product ever!!

I've been using PC 2%BHA since 1996 and my skin looks amazing. Gets rid of any bumpy skin, evens skin tone, helps redness and more. My absolute favorite PC product.

Use it almost every day. Had no irritation at all. Clearing out my clogged chin. And extremely hydrating for my dry skin! Already repurchased. Definitely a hero product! The only minus-I would love to see a bigger size)))

I would not be without this

I have really 'reactive' skin..dermatitis and some redness and the odd zit..i have tried so many products, and could open a Chemist with what I have bought plus my daughter hasn't had to buy skincare for a few years now as I give a lot of mine to her that my skin doesn't agree with. But this product, I totally love. I have not broken out since using this touch wood..before using this I would break out and took ages and ages to heal..now if I do get a zit,it seems to go within a couple of days(compared to a month or so before). I don't normally do reviews but im on my maybe 5th bottle of this and still no irritation ..pores are much improved..redness is minimal ..it has helped my skin 100%. I was in hospital for a week and didn't have it with me,and got terrible dermatitis..as soon as I was out I used this and within a few days the extra dry badly flaking skin like babies cradle cap was gone. Im 65 and this is my favourite product.

I've been using this for years now, keeps my skin in good working order. I use this in the morning after PC redness reducing toner, then Cerave AM spf 30 moisturizer. I also use PC glycolic 8% gel at night, this routine has made all the difference I'm 30 and people think I'm 16.

Normally I do not write reviews but reading the ones for the bha liquid is what made me buy it and couldn't be happier! My skin is clearer, brighter, softer and looks the best it has in years! I have always struggled with acne and not anymore! I have been using it for almost 3 months and see a huge difference. Thank you!!

Seriously a Miracle Worker

Anyone out there with combination skin knows my daily struggle. I couldn't find a product that worked for my sometimes oily, sometimes dry, acne prone, and pore covered skin (and usually all of these at the same time)!! When I started Paula's Choice YEARS ago, I started with the entire Skin Balancing line, which included this. THIS was the miracle worker in the group. You could tell that it was getting rid of my acne, my pores, my oily forehead and my dry cheeks. It was making my skin PERFECT and balanced. This BHA will compliment every skin type and can be added to any routine. You'll thank Paula for the rest of your life!

LOVE this product!

I've always had good skin, but noticed as I turned 65 last year that my skin seemed "dull" and those pesky tiny lines were starting along my cheeks. After reading the reviews for Paula's Choice, I decided to give the exfoliant a try and couldn't be happier. It takes 2 seconds twice a day, followed by a very good hyaluronic acid serum, and my skin has a glow I haven't seen in quite some time. I'm not sure if it's actually reducing my pores, but they look much smaller, while those tiny lines have also diminished. I am now a consumer for life!
