Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion combines 2% salicylic acid in a pH-correct lotion that soothes and softens skin with its combination of water-binding agents and anti-inflammatory ingredients. This is ideal for those with normal to dry skin prone to breakouts. As with all of my BHA products, the formula contains anti-irritants to calm skin and reduce redness.
Exfoliates both the skin's surface and inside the pore lining with a 2% concentration of salicylic acid (BHA). Elegant lotion formula leaves skin silky and is easily absorbed. Helps smooth out the skin's texture and exfoliate inside the pore to minimize blemishes and blackheads. Emollients and non-volatile plant oils moisturize and soften dry skin. Salicylic acid has a natural anti-inflammatory (soothing) and antibacterial properties. 100% fragrance- and colorant-free.

Disclosure: In addition to reviewing thousands of cosmetic products from hundreds of brands over the past 30 years, Paula also has her own line of products called Paula's Choice. Paula and her team's goal is to help you find the best products possible for your skin whether they are from Paula's Choice or some other product line. Paula's commitment to this is so strong she is the only cosmetics company owner in the world that recommends products other than her own. Paula and the Paula's Choice Research Team formulate our products to meet or exceed the criteria we use to review products from every other brand on this site. We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.
Paula's Choice was created in 1995 in response to the many readers who asked Paula to develop her own products. Given Paula's unique overview of the cosmetics industry, 30+ years of research, and earnest desire to help people find the best products for their skin-care needs, creating her own products was a natural extension of her work. Paula's Choice range of products are designed to meet the needs and preferences of just about every skin type and concern imaginable using only proven ingredients substantiated by published research.
