I recently had a stubborn bout of hormonal acne after getting of birth control pills and this seems to have really helped purge out a lot of the underlying inflamed acne I was getting from that. I initially wasn't sure which BHA from the brand I should try because they have so many types, but eventually I landed on this one. My skin has never really tolerated salicylic acid very well but I …Read more

I've bought two bottles of this product. I am now almost finished w/ the first bottle. The texture is just like water and does not sting or burn when applied. It feels like it's doing nothing. I cannot say for sure if it keeps my skin clear since I use many products and work very hard to keep my acne prone skin happy. This has caused no irritation of any kind. My least favorite thing is …Read more

This has hylaronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) which is supposed to be water binding and moisturizing. Unfortunately I always break out from this ingredient which is also there in Cerave moisturizer and lot of other products nowadays. I tried this to exfoliate my acne prone skin but unfortunately I broke out badly after using it for 1 week. My skin was pretty much under control using the 0.5% …Read more

This is my first Paula's Choice product and it was a little hard to figure out her line. There seems to be many salicylic acid products and it got confusing for me. I started breaking out on my chin last year and benzoyl peroxide did not help. I tried a drugstore salicylic but all these things dried out my already dry, older skin terribly. I have been using this for 3 months and it controls …Read more

I bought this after reading the reviews on makeupalley, and its the first Paula's choice product I tried. Having tried it for 3 months, until the trial size 30ml bottle ran out, I can say that unfortunately its not for me.

Firstly, the solution is far too runny. I have tried applying it with cotton pads and my fingers, but both times I think a lot of the liquid is wasted and …

I had a stubborn case of Perioral Dermatitis for an entire year and during this time I avoided any and all exfoliants because my skin barrier was wrecked and extra sensitive. After clearing my skin and changing my skincare, my skin was in desperate need of some major (but gentle!) exfoliation...to say the least! Although I was nervous about trying anything potentially irritating or drying. This …Read more

Good for oil control and clogged pores. Have to say it does not u unclog the stubborn ones.
Worked almost same as the original bha liquid.

Although I have mature, sensitive, roseacea prone skin, in hot humid weather, I get oily and reactive
with bumps. I bump up my skincare routine, and use Paula Choice for oily. I purchased this as a
possibility, and frankly I get better results on my skin using this instead of the BHA treatments.
It does tone down red reactions, and does exfoliate very gently.

Now that …

This exfoliant along with the Clear Cleanser helped get rid of my cystic acne and I have been able to maintain my clear skin for the last 2 years, before which no other products had worked. I also recommended it to my younger sister who was struggling with cystic acne - prescribed topical treatments and going on the pill did not help - and this combination of Paula's Choice products improved …Read more

I have normal to dry, occasionally congested, mature skin. My skin responds very nicely to both BHA and AHA products when I have access to quality formulations (or prepare my own solution/serums at home). I had high hopes for the PC 2% since I had read it was not as drying as the Obagi 2% toner I had been using previously. I absolutely hated the oily residue left behind when using the 2% PC …Read more
