Paula’s choice BHA exfoliant honest review

2% BHA exfoliant by @paulaschoice • Travel size: 10.00$ Full size: 29.50$ • It’s watery since it’s a liquid and it doesn’t really have a smell to it, it’s fragrance free. • • Claims: “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.” - paula’s choice website • • Why did I get this product? I was dealing with a really bad breakout on my cheeks and it seemed to never go away, I kept seeing ads about this exfoliant and people were raving about this and talking about how great this exfoliant is, to be honest with you I didn’t really believe that it was going to be that good because it sounded too good to be true but oh boy was I wrong. My experience with it: I used it twice a day and In just a week my pimples started going away. My pores seemed smaller, they were not clogged anymore. My skin felt extremely smooth. So I use this with my niacinamide serum and these 2 together was just wow in 2-3 weeks the dark spots on my forehead started to faded. So if all of that happened in 1-3 weeks imagine what can happen if you use for a year. My overall opinion: I love this exfoliant, I 100% recommend it, I’m currently using the travel size but I will definitely be repurchasing the full size once it’s done. • • I hope you guys enjoyed this review, have you ever tried this product?

My skin during my move from FL to AZ 💦➡️🌵
Two weeks i moved from Florida (aka the most humid state) to Arizona (aka the driest state) and my state didn’t take it very well. The first few days I was here my skin was so dry that it hurt to smile. I even woke up with a rash (maybe from the sun). My lips were SO dry. It was horrible. As a person with naturally oily skin this was super weird. So what did I do? Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Healing Jelly, Rich Moisturizing all over my lips 2-3 times a day I also started using my Vanicream moisturizer twice a day and my BANISH - Vitamin C Cream religiously. Now my skin is starting to get used to it and I kinda like it. I haven’t had a single pimple since I got here which I cam get behind. PS if anyone has recommendations for pores lmk (I already use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator )

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.

I finally got to try paulas ch
I finally got to try paulas choice 2% BHA liquid exfoliant for skin perfecting and I want to share my thoughts! 💭 What is it? It’s a liquid exfoliant gentle enough to use Every day on every skin type. It eliminates dead skin cells while clearing pores for a more even, and smoother young looking skin. This exfoliant has a ph of 3.2-3.8 It contains Beta hydroxy acid also known as BHA (Salicylic acid). It is a clear, very hydrating solution that you can apply with a cotton pad. For daytime use, follow with a SPF of 30 or grater. 💭 My experience: I have texture on my skin from my teenage years and ocasional acne because of my hormones and recently because of stress. I started to use this for about 4 days now... I know it’s not enough time to make a review but I just had to share my opinion on this! Regardless of the short amount of time, I’ve been very surprised how amazing this product works on my skin! I haven’t had any new breakouts! I have noticed my pores slightly smaller, I know no product can reduce your pores all the way, but I noticed mine are looking a lot better! Now I know why so many or you recommend this product when I asked for advice on my skin’s texture and my pores! I like how smooth you’re skin looks after every application and how the product sinks well into the skin! I will continue using this until no longer needed! I’m also super curious to try other Paulas Choice products that can help a sister out! This retails for $29.50 at their website! Also, a little goes a long way!

PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Key ingredient: The main ingredient in this exfoliant is BHA. BHA are water soluble acids that act as a natural exfoliants. What the product claims:  - clears and minimizes pores  - sheds built - up layers of skin  - absorbs quick Price: $29.50 – 4oz I bought the Paula’s Choice  2% BHA liquid exfoliant because everyone was raving about this beauty! After using it for a while I have thoughts... The main ingredient in this exfoliant is BHA. BHA are water soluble acids that act as a natural exfoliants. Since BHA penetrates beneath the epidermis it helps in clearing blackheads, sebum, whiteheads, pores and more. The consistency is like liquefied maple syrup but NOT sticky at all. It applies very easily and absorbs within a minute or less. I use this exfoliant right after my toner allow for maximum absorption. After using this exfoliant for about two months I can definitely say my skin is much brighter and is also clearer 😍I had dry/dull skin with a light case of keratosis Pilaris, and I can definitely see the difference after using this exfoliant. I don't have enlarged or clogged pores so I can't really put a measure on that claim. However, like I mentioned it did clear out my dry built up skin. It absorbs right after application and gives me a dewy look which I am a fan of. Would I recommend this product? Yes 🙌🏼To anyone struggling with acne, hyperpigmentation or any of the of the skin issues mentioned above this is a game changer in your routine. I will definitely be repurchasing this once I finish this bottle 😍This product retails for $29.50 – 4oz.

Cheap and effective exfoliant
Cheap and effective exfoliant
This AHA and BHA serum is meant to help clear out and minimize pores. This is good for people with congested skin or hyperpigmentation. It has a watery consistency that absorbs well into the skin. I used this product pretty regularly for a month and thought it was a decent exfoliator. It didn’t irritate or sting my skin so I could see this working out for people who are newer to acids. Personally I’ve been using stronger acids, so this felt a little weak in comparison, which is why I took off one star to give it a 4/5. I would recommend this for someone looking for something effective and cheap. It’s only $6 and gets the job done so it’s definitely worth it. GOOD MOLECULES - Overnight Exfoliating Treatment

This is the one of the best chemical exfoliant I have tried Ideal for all skin types, unclog and shrinks enlarged pores, smooth and even your skin tone and it’s is so lightweight that your skin absorbed it so quick (in my case) Is a clear liquid and as I said before super lightweight, I applied with cotton rounds and dab it all around my face Some people might get used to the chemicals, redness or itching, but in my case nothing happened, my skin is a sucker for chemical and acids If you have tried let me know PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator
