I tried the cult-favorite Paula's Choice exfoliant and now that my skin is glowing, I totally get the hype
The bottom lineAlthough I was initially a bit nervous about using a liquid exfoliant, and not being able to feel with my fingers just how much I was exfoliating my skin, I am officially converted. The Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant delivers multiple benefits through its key ingredients. It also comes in a travel size at just $11

[Routine Help] i’ve been struggling with skin like this for years. any advice?
I recommend the Paulas Choice 2% BHA liquid toner. It’s really good at keeping pores clean.

Plus skin texture over all is super smooth! Definitely will buy a fu...

[Skin Concern] How do I treat my razor bumps
3) In cases of large or painful ingrown hairs use paulas choice benzoyl peroxide 5% with paulas choice 9% BHA treatment 2x for 3 days (this combo layered flattens out the ingrown hair paired with tweezing it ). 4) lastly check your shave cream.

I’ve spent probably thousands on a multitude of different products, trying to find one that would at least make a dent. I’ve had many procedures, ...

[shelfie] bring back shelfies! Cruelty free routine
Paulas choice 2% BHA: after being on this subreddit for 4 years I’ve finally just tried this (it’s been a few months). I like this product, and always feel glowy the following day when I apply this. I don’t have any major skin concerns, but it helps with keeping any of my odd pimples/Blackheads at bay. Since I’ve started using this, my skin never looks dull.
If you actually understand how to use it, it's amazing.
My skin type: - Very Dry, easily dehydrated - Oily nose - Prone to stubborn acne and closed comedones - Redness on chin and cheeks (not rosacea) I already use a nightly Tretinoin cream (.04% concentration) to help with my acne and premature signs of aging but decided with my derm that incorporating ...
