Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant Review

I have always struggled with acne and even though I'm 27, it doesn't seem to be leaving any time soon. I have tried a lot of different treatments over the years and I thought it was only fair to give this extremely popular product a fair chance. Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant ReviewThe Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is a fast absorbing liquid that removes built-up dead skin cells and reduces blackheads, blemishes and redness. It works best to banish breakouts, blackheads, enlarged pores and redness thanks to the key ingredients of Salicylic Acid/BHA, Green Tea Extract and Methylpropanediol. When you start using this product, it's recommended to start by using it every other day and building up to using it twice a day. Once I was able to use it twice a day I noticed best results. And as this is an exfoliating product, make sure to wear SPF during the daytime. 

It has been designed for those with combination, oily skin types and I do really like this product! If you are wanting to use this for big breakouts however, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you are looking for treatment to get rid of whiteheads and blackheads, this is top tier. I have been struggling with whiteheads, blackheads and bumpy skin texture for months now, I'm pretty sure it's due to wearing face coverings, and nothing was working. But I remembered I had this product in my stash and gave it a try and regretted not using it sooner. 

Months ago when I was first trying this out, I didn't love it which I was shocked by as Salicylic Acid is one of my favourite skincare ingredients and has always worked brilliantly for my skin. When I was using it the first time around, I had a lot more cystic acne which are huge pain breakouts and it didn't really do anything for those. However for black and white heads, it is a miracle worker! I noticed a difference within a couple of days after using it twice a day. They have almost all completely cleared up now and my skin is the best it has been in at least six months. It doesn't dry out the skin at all and I love how smooth my skin is again while also having very minimal redness. 

Paula's Choice is a cruelty-free brand.
