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.

Paula's Choice products provide:

  • State-of-the-art formulas based on reliable, published skin-care research

  • 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee from our world-class Customer Service Team

Paula's Choice products and Paula's work is routinely praised by noted dermatologists and other professionals. New York-based dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman stated that "I have a lot of respect for Paula Begoun and the way she thoroughly researches her subject. Her recommendations about cosmetics and skin care are deservedly influential." Eminent Seattle-based dermatologist Dr. Brandith Irwin concurs: "She takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand!"

    I love this lotion!
    • I've used the 2% BHA lotion daily or twice daily for a few years now and love it. I'm in my mid-40s, with dry and somewhat sensitive skin. I still get occasional breakouts, but they're minor and probably can't be avoided regardless of product choice. I love that there is no fragrance in the lotion and I have never found it irritating even when I get it close to my eyes.

    Excellent!
    • This is fantastic! I've used scrubs for years and there's nothing wrong with a well formulated scrub. But this has really brightened up my complexion. I use this about 3 times a week and the resist weekly once a week.Find this combination excellent.Personally, I don't believe in daily exfoliation.Skin has to go through the natural renewal process.But this is a wonderfiul product. Wish I'd discovered PC products years ago. But here in the UK Paula is virtually unknown.I love this try it!

    Use caution
    • I would only recommend this product for a certain type of skin only (oily) and young! I bought it for "bumps" on my upper arms., it works wonderfully, smoothing out bumps. However, recently after washing my face, and after a period of using prescription strength Retin A, I used this lotion on my face. The next day my face felt like I had burned it! I must have gotten some around my eyes too, they were very painful for 3 days. If you have dry skin or are over 55 use caution!
