Additional Information

Why is it different?

CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant is a leave-on, sheer lightweight lotion with a texture that works to soothe redness and smooth away dry skin with skin-plumping hydration. It also diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and lessens the size of pores.

This exfoliant has an optimal pH range of 3.2–3.8

What does it do?
Gently exfoliates skin’s surface as well as inside the pores to enhance skin renewal, while hydrating and soothing ingredients promote visibly calm, even-toned skin. Skin-soothing plant extracts ease extra-sensitive, red skin for a more unified, healthier-looking appearance. Helps unclog and refine the look of enlarged pores and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. Gentle enough even for those with skin prone to rosacea.
Collapse
How to use
Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning. Apply a dime-sized amount over the entire face, including the eye (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

Good once it soaks in

4

Feels soothing on sensitive skin. Smells a little medicinal due to the salycilic acid. Goes on sticky but skin feels smooth once it soaks in. Pores on my nose do look smaller. A little goes a long way!

Love it.

I love this new formula. The old one broke me out, made my skin drier, irritated. So far this is gentle and soothing, non irritating. And seems to be doing a fair job in exfoliating. Ty

Won't be buying this again!

This product makes my skin sticky. The old formula needs to be brought back because my skin did great with if. Something I find noteworthy is that the ingredient list is totally false on the website, comparing it to the actual bottle! I don't want aluminum on my skin and it's in this awful new formula!

Inflamed my sensitive skin

1

It increased my redness. I was hoping I could use it on my sensitive skin. I guess it just works for some and not others.

Did not work for me

1

I loved the feel of this lotion, but shortly after I started using it, I developed a significant breakout on my cheeks. I rarely have breakouts, and never as significant as this. I didn't put 2 and 2 together so I thought the lotion would help clear it up. It got even worse as I used it more. It felt like a burning under the skin, getting ready to erupt. I stopped all use and by day 2 it didn't hurt but was still raised and somewhat irritated. This product obviously works for most users and reactions are very individual. So for me - it doesn't work and in fact makes things worse.

Causes more skin sensitivity

2

I purchased this product to calm my sensitive skin, reduce pore size and lightly moisturize my skin. However, it causes my skin to immediately turn red and burn, plus it leaves a tacky finish that is not complimentary when applying foundation.

Paula's Choice has had better 1% BHAs

1

I've used PC products since 2001. They've all been great with a one or two exceptions. This is the major one. I prefer the BHA 1% with the cucumber smell a lot of people complained about. It was fantastic in every way the smell didn't bother me. I think PC should bring the other one back so there are other 1% options. There are so many 2% options not fair. There have been I think three or four formulations of the 1% BHA since PC launched her own line. The others have all been great except this one. I have rosa was and it irritated my face a little. I'm so sad.

Confidence in a bottle!

I have always had blackheads on my nose, around my nostrils and around my lips. I was always self conscious about this even though I have seen worse. Before this product I had not tried anything but changing my cleansers and moisturizers in hopes of not clogging my pores. I have VERY sensitive skin and some redness on my cheeks. I was skeptical but after using the entire bottle I am a believer! This has changed my skin dramatically! My blackheads are almost 100% gone and my pores look smaller. This is another product from PC that I will never run out of. I am now finishing up the last little bit of this bottle and already have the BHA 2% Lotion in my cabinet ready to go. I use this AM and PM, I just love it! It will change your skin!

more irritating than calming

2

Ironic that this BHA product, sold as being calming, is more irritating than the other BHAs from PC. I was hoping this would replace the one with the horrifying cucumber scent (which didn't irritate, just smelled bad), but while this one has no scent, it is far more reactive than the others i've used from Paula. over the years, I think i've used them all, and by far the best one, the original 1% lotion, was the winner. but times must change, even at the expense of good products, even with Paula. i wouldn't recommend this product for sensitive skin.
