Today I want to review the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Toner for you guys. I’ve been using this for the past month and love it so far! Read below to find out what it has to offer. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator
This toner retails for about $30. It comes in a pretty nice size bottle 4 fl. oz. The toner is supposed to boost the skins tone and texture to minimize the appearance of redness, large pores, and wrinkles. I have noticed that since I have been using this product, my redness has disappeared! It also is great for the environment which I am all for. 👍🏼 Here are some key benefits: ✨ sheds built up layers of skin ✨ minimizes pores ✨ light weight texture absorbs smoothly into the skin Overall, I think this toner is great. It is not too harsh and has become an essential step for me in my morning and night time routines after cleanser and before moisturizer! Have you tried this toner? What are your thoughts? 🤩💗

Which BHA Product for Your Skin Type?
If you deal with acne-prone skin or enlarged pores, salicylic acid (BHA) is heaven-sent for most folks. Oil-soluble, it penetrates more effectively/deeply into the pore than water-soluble AHAs, touting hydrating, antimicrobial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties in addition to exfoliating. But Which BHA Product Is Best for You? 👀 • PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator : $29.50 USD, $0.25 per mL. A cult classic, an international bestseller, a bottle of liquid gold. Water-thin, it contains a couple of humectants, an antioxidant, and 3 preservative/stabilizing ingredients. A super simple INCI list! This makes it especially friendly to many sensitive-skinned folks, as the list of possible skin triggers is small. Some people say the finish feels oily, but I find it intensely hydrating and it soaks in quickly, making it great for combo and dry skin alike! This simple liquid is my pick for enlarged pores and general skin congestion. • NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% : $20 USD, $0.17 per mL. Encapsulated salicylic acid and a variety of humectants make this a hydrating exfoliant “toner”, perfect for those with any skin type, with one exception- those with sensitive skin may have issue with the citrus extracts contained, though the producers of the extracts claim they contain mild AHA exfoliant properties. I’d recommend this to any skin type with non-sensitive skin looking for a budget SA product that leaves skin hydrated but not tacky, and helps to keep pores minimized and unclogged. Texture-picky folks on a budget will love this! • THE inkey LIST - Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) Blemish + Blackhead Serum : $10.99 USD, $0.37 per mL. This is the best BHA for oily skin, featuring a super simple INCI list made up of humectants, stabilizers, salicylic acid, and zinc PCA. Salicylic acid helps to keep pores clear while zinc pca helps to reduce sebum production, though I personally react badly to zinc pca- bumps and itchiness, unfortunately. This product is still one I recommend to friends, as it’s affordable and has minimal chance of triggering skin allergies/sensitivities other than the zinc, with huge potential for those that struggle with acne in general.

Review: the ordinary peeling solution
Everyone has been raving about this product, so I decided to give it a go. I used this product once a week for about 3 months. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Benefits: AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution from The Ordinary offers deeper exfoliation to help fight signs of pore congestion and improve skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines. My experience: This product worked very well with my skin type (combo/ acne prone). I always used it according to the directions and most of the time felt a bit of a tingle, which is normal. After every use, my skin felt very smooth and looked nice and dewy. This product also helped fade my dark spots and made my acne subside. I found that after a month, I did notice a difference in my pores (appeared a bit smaller). My review: I do like this product! Looking at reviews of the peeling solution, it seems a good amount of people who have sensitive skin found this product to be irritating. My skin can be sensitive, but I’ve never had a problem! The peeling solution was my first experience using a chemical exfoliant and I’m glad I tried it! However, now that I have used PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator I do reach for this one over the peeling solution because I do think it’s a better product. Both of these products are great liquid exfoliants!

Appreciation post for these paulaschoice babies 🤩 They’ve cleared up so much texture on my chin and forehead, I officially can’t go without them in my routine! I’ve seen the toner floating around on insta, but the serum has been amazing as well. They’re both so gentle and effective - can’t recommend them enough!! 💕💕

friyay faves featuring paulas choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant! 💛 This is my first PC product & it did not disappoint. It’s gentle but effective. I’ve experienced absolutely zero irritation & my skin is looking better every single day. 👏🏾 After toning, I shake a bit onto my fingers & then pat it into my skin. It layers well with the rest of my routine & isn’t drying. 👍🏾 My skin is so much smoother from using this. I only use it at night since I don’t want to end up over exfoliating but it’s still highly effective once a day. I honestly didn’t expect to love it this much. It’s a game changer. 😍

Holy Grail Status 🥇
Holy Grail Status 🥇
SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID This chemical exfoliater definitely lives up to its cult following. It gently exfoliates dead skin cells, blackhead and clogged pores away to reveal polished skin underneath. This is my 3rd bottle of this stuff & I will keep using it! TEXTURE: Very watery & light. Some say it has an oily texture but I don’t notice it. I use 4 droplets on a Cotton round and then wipe gently on my face. SENSITIVITY: This was my first chemical exfoliant in my routine a few months ago and I have very sensitive skin, so I slowly built up my tolerance to it each week. Now I can use it everyday with no irritation, but because I also use retinol, I found that it’s best in my routine if I use this in the morning, 4 times a week. PRICE: Honestly, its a bit pricey, but considering how much product you are getting and that it ACTUALLY works, I won’t hesitate spending 29.50. It also lasts me almost 2 months before I need to buy another!! TOTAL SCORE: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5.

Holy Grail Product for Facial Exfoliation
Holy Grail Product for Facial Exfoliation
This tube of miracle gold is saving my skin! Quarantine had taken its toll on my face... :( I began to break out about a week into self-isolating and I dove right in to the skincare realm and purchased a bunch of crap (reviews to come in the future) - some things worked, others made it a bit not good. However, PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator began working its magic the morning after I first included it in my nighttime skin routine. This product has a pretty watery consistency (not at all thick) and a little goes a long way. I had read that Salicylic Acid helped those with acne prone skin and that is correct, in my case. I’ve been on this product for about 4 days now with no aversive reaction yet *fingers crossed* but will keep being careful and only applying it before bed with a cotton pad, for the product to be fully absorbed as I dream of clear skin. Of course, seeing the beginning of healing has me definitely feeling encouraged but I know this will take some time. Since my flare-up, I’ve only been using my cleanser, this product and then moisturizing. Keeping it simple for my skin to acclimate. I would recommend this product if you’re struggling with acne and not trying to break your moisture barrier.

Pore Minimizing Serum - Paula’s Choice
Pore Minimizing Serum - Paula’s Choice
This is a pore Minimizing, antioxidant serum from Paula’s Choice, and it includes salicylic acid and white tea to unclog pores, clear skin from environmental stressors, and reduce acne. The salicylic acid content isn’t the highest, but the serum is easy to apply, and quickly absorbs. Unfortunately, I’ve struggled with finding a space for this in my routine, since I can’t use it at night in combination with some of my heavier exfoliating acids, and I can’t use it in the mornings when I use Vitamin C consistently. I’ve tried to alternate vitamin C and this product in the mornings, and that’s what I’ll try to continue doing. I haven’t seen any significant changes to my skin since using this product, but that might be because it’s not being used every day. I think it’s a great serum for someone who also has more environmental stressors like pollution or dirty air, and maybe they’d see more of an effect from this product, but I would give it a 3 star out of 5 rating.

PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator this product is life changing and here’s why. x first and foremost, it retails for 29.50 USD and is worth every penny. x this is a 2% BHA liquid exfoliant that is super gentle for everyday use and it’s targeted concerns are removing dead skills cells and build up from your pores which in turn unclogs and clears out your pores to minimize the appearance of them leaving you with smoother skin. like what, this is amazing. x texture is a viscous watery and clear liquid! x this is great for all skin types and people who struggle with congested pores and this has been a cult fave for so many for so long! x I absolutely adore this product and have seen the biggest improvement on my skin with this. while I don’t struggle with enlarged and congested pores compared to others, I did want something to help manage them and this is it baby. I use this about 3x a week and swipe it onto clean skin, let it do its thing and move on to my routine. My skin overall had improved remarkably and more pores look tiny (with consistent use) and my skin looks smoother. I am so glad I used this and it now holds a forever spot in my routine and on my shelf. x I highly recommend because this is honestly a product that works and doesn’t break the bank. If you have been debating about this for a while, go add to your cart now! x so deservingly, a 5/5!
