description

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.

Water⁠, Methylpropanediol⁠, Butylene Glycol⁠, Salicylic Acid⁠, Polysorbate 20⁠, Camellia Oleifera⁠, Sodium Hydroxide⁠, Tetrasodium EDTA⁠

It’s a great BHA liquid and it helps with smoother skin, less pimples/blackheads/large pores. You really see a difference after the first use. I’m also a bit pissed at PC because they used to sell...

Nothing groundbreaking as everyone says it is. Pros: it kind of helps to get fewer breakouts, smaller pimples and fewer closed comedones. Does an excellent job at releasing ingrown hairs. ...

This product is a gem! It gets rid if those pesky closed comedones that are really difficult to get rid if. 1 week of this and they're gone!

I purchased this due to the high reviews at Nordstrom. I'm happy to report that it works well. I don't use it everyday since it can be drying. I will repurchase.

I gave this a try two times on separate occasions but the conclusion remains the same: BHAs just don't work very well on my skin. This product just simply made my skin flakey and dry without any of...

Really happy with this BHA exfoliant, especially compared to the gel version. This one works just as well as the gel, but it doesn't leave a residue and therefore doesn't make my foundation ball...

I feel BHA’s are a “secret weapon” because any time I am having a breakout anything with salicylic acid clears my skin in a day or two. I have dry skin and feel exfoliation is important because my...
