Additional Information

Why is it different?
A unique leave-on formula that’s gentle enough for daily use on all skin types. Exfoliates dead skin cells while clearing pores for a more even, radiant tone, plus visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles to reveal remarkably smoother, younger-looking skin.

This exfoliant has an optimal pH range of 3.2–3.8.

Collapse
What does it do?
Skin becomes dull, dry and congested when dead skin cells build up on its surface. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA, also known as salicylic acid) mimics the natural exfoliation process of younger skin by helping it shed extra layers while unclogging and clearing pores.
Collapse
How to use
Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and/or toning. Lightly soak a cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

Wow, wow, wow (in a good way!!!)

As a super sensitive rosacea sufferer for years- everything turns my face red. Even the most expensive, highly rated stuff. Even Cerave which is my dermatologist recommended moisturizer for me turns me red when first applied. Guess what? This BHA Exfoliant does not turn my face red at all. I've had a blackhead problem because scrubs are bad for rosacea. I noticed within two days my skins looks clean, glowing (and I'm 56) and no noticeable blackheads. I ordered the trial size because I've learned to be cautious. I just finished ordering my first full bottle. My recommendation is to try the trial size and if it works for you, you will be smitten. I am using this as a cleaner at night. It leaves your skins so smooth and hydrated.

Actually is exactly like any facial toner. I can't understand why is one of the best seller's products. No changes in my skin, I'm very disapointment

My gold standard

I so rarely write reviews but this is the most outstanding liquid exfoliant I've ever used. I have combination skin and am currently working on mild adult acne and the beginnings of fine lines. I can't believe how much this product smoothes my skin and decreases my breakouts (which aren't awful but are stubbornly consistent). Right now I only use once at night since it takes a little while to fully absorb into the skin and is a heavier product, a minor nuisance but fully worth it for a product that works so well. I've tried several of the PC exfoliants and most of them have been good, but this is the gold standard I'll continue to buy. LOVE IT.

I have extremely oily/acne prone skin that is not only plagued by hormonal acne, but reactive breakouts due to sensitivity. This is just a dream. It actually leaves your skin moisturized, so I end up using a small amount of moisturizer in addition and am set. I started using Differin and use the toner at least 15 minutes before in the evening so that the two don't react negatively. Every time I switch to another toner, I'll be content, but then repurchase this and start seeing the biggest difference again. It reduces redness and inflammation, works to keep acne from popping up. Yay!

Changed my skin!

I ordered this after hearing about the benefits of BHA for acne and acne scarring. The majority of my acne was gone but I still had a lot of red acne marks left. After using it for a week or two, I started noticing that the redness of the marks and the redness of my general skin going down! I notice when I don't use it that my blackheads and pores on my nose worsen and my face feels more red and less soft. I use it nightly. I just squirt some on my hand and apply that way.

Astonishing

I got it, i got blessed first to have a good skin by nature, and i got blessed second time to have such a nice guru as Paula to guide through skin care. I really like this product, it smooths out your skin surface, improves texture and as always packed with so many amazing ingredients. Gurl! You rock!!!

My face cleared up immediately

This stuff is amazing, and I absolutely love it. I have oily skin that is VERY easily dehydrated. My skin tone is slightly uneven with some redness and acne. While I didn't have severe acne, I always had a few rather large nodular pimples, and nothing would make it better. That is, until I bought this. It has a slight chemical smell, but it is amazing on my skin. It evens my skin tone and texture, treats acne, and doesn't dry out my skin! Amazing.

I have some of the worst sebaceous filaments, they're huge and take up my entire t-zone. I've had them for 6 years and nothing would help them. The first night I used this product, I woke up and could see a tiny improvement, but I wasn't sure if I was seeing things or not. The next night, I definitely could see improvements, my sebaceous filaments were finally disappearing. I received this product on June 9th. Today is June 14th and I already can see the huge improvements. My nose is clearing out so quickly, I never thought I would see the day that my nose would clear up! The only thing that I'm not thrilled about is the sticky feeling, but it's really a small price to pay. I would recommend this to anyone out there with sebaceous filaments!!

SMOOTHER SKIN INSTANTLY!

5

I found a sample size of this product. I was out of astringent and tried Paula's choice. For my enlarged pores and bumpy skin, this produced very quick RESULTS! I woke up with smoother skin and my pores were diminished from just one use. I am not sure if I believe the results! They were miraculous.

I have rosacea and have every type of acne under the sun. 70% if products make my skin break out because it so sensitive but this stuff.. is freaking awesome. If you're not sure try ordering the smaller size first but it works amazing. You just swipe on quick after your face wash day/night and I started to see improvement in about 2 weeks. It's even made my skin more smooth and healed scars. Definitely buying again!
