BHA Battle! Which is better?
A BHA (beta-hydroxy acid, also known as salicylic acid) is a known ingredient to help unclog pores, fight acne, reduce pore appearance, and dissolve oil. I have extremely acne prone skin and I fight texture constantly (small comedones, blackheads, and sometimes cysts). I first picked up the CosRX BHA Power Liquid because of the price (believe it was around $20). I thought it did a decent job but I think it fell short unfortunately. It has plant derived salicylic acid, so I’m not sure if that is where it loses it‘s potency (claims it has 4%, which is quite high). Paula’s Choice was having a sale and I thought, well why not? I picked up my first bottle of the CULT FAVE (I now know why) 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. Hats off to you Paula’s Choice 🎩 I honestly don’t know how they did it, but this is the most effective acne/texture fighting product I’ve EVER tried. It has 2% Salicylic Acid (BHA obvs), green tea extract, and some awesome hydrating ingredients. The application is a little tricky. Funny enough it is a liquid but when applied it is a little oily. I usually spot treat and use my fingers or use a cotton round and PAT it onto my skin. This helps ensure I’m not wasting this precious gold and push the product into the skin. It is r e a l l y hyped up, but for good reason. This stuff works. I loved it so much after a weeks use (saw impressive improvement in my texture), that I picked up a second bottle. I’m sold. I love this stuff. I RECOMMEND the PC all day!!! PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT COSRX - Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
