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, optimizing 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 30 or greater.

      I started out using it once a day, it did dry out skin for about 3 weeks but now I have no problem using this sometimes twice a day. It is so effective! Bye bye pores and wrinkles!!!

      Somehow my pores appeared smaller after 1-2 uses. So far my skin is also less flakey. I'm really looking forward to longer-term results.

        • Uneven Skin Tone

        Haven't been using this long enough to speak to the long term results but I noticed that new zits and blackheads are smaller the morning after using. Also my skin is less oily since beginning to use this and pores appear smaller. In the beginning it dried out areas around my jawline, but I was using an OleHenriksen cleanser at the time, and since I switched to PC Skin Balancing Cleanser, I have no dry areas or flaking.
        I was using it morning and night but realized it leaves a shine that I can't cover up, so I use it at night and am going to try out some different PC BHA products to use with my morning routine.

          I used this for quite a while (2 bottles worth), but didn't immediately reorder when I ran out the second time...NEVER AGAIN! My skin needs this stuff. I use it every other day (or as needed) and pores look smaller, skin feels so much smoother, and this will always be part of my skincare routine.

              Best Uses

              • acne marks
              • Daily Use
              • hyperpigmentation
              • Redness/ Blotchiness
              • Uneven Skin Tone

              !!!! My skin is at its best since I started using this every morning. I have very fair skin and I've struggled with acne since age 9 or 10 which left bright red marks all over my cheeks. When I found this I was so desperate; nothing worked and I started seeing a dermatologist for my acne. After the worst of the acne cleared up this exfoliant lifted the hyper-pigmentation and smoothed the texture of my whole face. My skin looks brighter and I don't have to manually exfoliate as often because this stuff just sloughs off all the dead skin. The only caveat is that *this won't clear acne*!! This did nothing for any acne BUT post-pimple red marks fad faster than I ever thought possible and even the darkest spots are slowly fading. It takes time to see results with this product but it's worth the wait. Consistent application and patience is key. This stuff is so great; this is the only review I'll ever write about a product. I feel sappy writing this but after 10 years of hormonal acne and perpetual hyper-pigmentation I never thought my skin would ever look and feel this good.

                • Sensitive Skin
                • Uneven Skin Tone

                This product has made a beautiful difference in my skin in a very short time. Although it's slightly tacky, it works so well - please don't change a thing - the tackiness does disappear in a few minutes and the results are well worth it! This has eliminated flakes, soothed minor breakouts, and helped to even out my skin tone. The most unexpected plus is that as soon as I put it on my skin it looks smoother and adds a radiance.

                Service and delivery comments:

                My delivery started with UPS and then went to USPS which slowed delivery by a few days. Our USPS delivery is not as good as UPS so i'd prefer not to have Paula's select the dual method. However, delivery was free so I guess I can't complain too much.

                    Cons

                    • Irritates Skin
                    • Not Effective

                    Best Uses

                      Very disappointed with this product. As soon as it started to dry my skin became red, hot and started to sting/burn. I washed it off as quickly as possible at that point but my skin was still left in horrible condition (tons of tiny bumps, face extremely rough, very red & irritated in general).

                      I decided to skip it tonight but my face broke out in the same manner if I used anything other than extremely sensitive / eczema type products, so it appears it really did a number on my skin.
                      (I do not have any Atopic dermatitis (eczema) on my face so that's not a plausible reason for why I broke out so horribly, though I do have contact dermatitis on my eyelids and this product set it off.)

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was very good, the product arrived extremely quickly and in perfect condition. I also appreciate all of the additional info they include.
