Those struggling with oily skin, signs of aging, breakouts, and enlarged pores, you've found your solution! This light-as-water fragrance-free exfoliant contains anti-aging and anti-acne superstar salicylic acid in a fluid formula that combines super-light hydrating ingredients with cell-communicating peptides, antioxidants, repairing ingredients, and anti-irritants to reduce redness and soother sensitive skin. This can absolutely be considered a multi-purpose product because it fights breakouts, blackheads, and clogged, enlarged pores as it improves skin tone and texture while stimulating collagen production.
Best for normal to oily or combination skin prone to breakouts but suitable for all skin types (even those with rosacea), this is a product Paula and her Development Team are exceedingly proud of. It's not easy to formulate an effective (meaning pH-correct) salicylic acid (BHA) exfoliant without resorting to using alcohol—the kind that damages skin, leading to dryness and irritation. It took quite a bit of effort, but the team did it—and the results are sure to put a smile on the face of anyone wondering how to deal with breakouts and signs of aging at the same time.

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.

We review all products the same way using the same research, objective comments, and praise no matter whose product it is.
