This has helped with my pores so incredibly much! I've tried two other salicylic acid treatments, but this is the best of the three!... Read more

I dont agree with how often they instruct you to apply the product. The label says once or twice a day, but even with my very oily skin, it felt like too much. I apply it every other night, which is way less stripping. Apply it how you will, but do be careful with how much you apply it.... Read more

Totally worth it !! My experience: I start using this product a month ago, My skin had somes pimples and really large pores. I used it 1 time a week for the first week, 2x for the second week and kept using it 3x a week at night. I’ve had bad experience with acnes and large pores since I was teenager and didnt find any solutions for it until now What I like: ✅ Clear of acne ✅ Make my pores less visible ✅ The texture of my skin felt smoother ✅ secure packaging so it easy to take to product out without make it all over the place...

Some things that I dont like: ❌ Purging for 2 weeks ( which is not really surprise for my case since I had a lot of whitehead under my skin). After those 2 weeks, my skin was so clean. ❌ A bit ichy when I applied it for the first time but everything fine for other times Overal: This is a 💯 product for acnes and oily skin. If your skin is too sensitive you can try it on small part of your skin to see if it is okay for you before apply it on the face.... Read more

📖 What it Does 📖 • Unclogs Pores • Smoothing • Brightening • Evens Skin Tone • Exfoliating • 🧖‍♀️ My Experience 🧖‍♀️ Ok so this is the product that ruined my skin barrier. It was the first chemical exfoliant that I had used back in 2018. Being a newbie I followed the instructions on the bottle to use it once or twice daily and within the first week my skin barrier was soo damaged to the point where even the most gentle products were stinging. My skin was so dry, red and had new breakouts from the irritation. I had to stop using this so I could heal my barrier and did further research on this product. Once I was satisfied with my research I once again gave the BHA a chance. I used it after toner before moisturiser once a week for 2 weeks, then increased to twice a week for a month. This way it did not irrtate me. I saw a difference in my pores, they we cleaner, and in 2 months of use I saw less and less breakouts. For me using this 2 times a week at night is enough exfoliation. At the end of 2020 I started using Tretinoin which is drying it's self, so I had to cut out this BHA and I introduced an AHA after a couple of months. I still use this product when my pores need a deep clean maybe once a week but only on my T- Zone. I avoid using this on my cheeks and neck as it over dries my skin now even with all my hydrating products. 🪴 Highlight Ingredients 🪴 • 2% Salicylic Acid - Exfoliant • • Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract (Tea-Oil Camellia) - Antioxidant • 👃 Smell 👃 Acetone-y and vinegary 🌈 Colour🌈 Clear 🌵 Texture 🌵 Water like with an oil texture. 🎁 Packaging 🎁 118ml. Hard black plastic bottle with a nice dispenser and a white twist cap. 💰 Price 💰 $38.00 AUD 💱 Repurchase 💱 Maybe... 💭 Final Thoughts 💭 Best for oily skin. This will further dehydrate skin if you have dry skin. If I get off Tretinoin I will definitely reintroduce the BHA as the main exfoliant. ⭐ Overall Score ⭐ 4.5/5... Read more

Man do I love Paula’s Choice. Picky app said this was “worth a try” for my skin type but let me tell you. This is such a good product. I have issues around my nose with blackheads and the occasional pimple and I tend to only have to use this a few times a week for both of those to be gone. This would probably work best for someone with more acne and oily skin but even with dry skin as long as I dont use it too often it is perfect. You have to be aware of when to stop exfoilating your skin and at what point youre overexfoliating .... Read more

I gave in for the masses and bought this overhyped and highly recommended product. So... It didn't work at all First, it sits on top of skin and doesn't absorb. I can see the pearls of product on top of my skin like when you sweat. Second, there's no effect. Other salicylic acid products that cost 1/4 work, this doesnt. Third, it is super expensive....

Pros ✨ - THIS IS A GAME CHANGER FOR PEOPLE WHO SUFFER ACNE/HORMONAL ACNE LIKE ME! MUST TRY THIS! 🥰 - hands down for this been using the 30 ml for 2 weeks and now my skin is GLOWING - if you suffer enlarged pores and blackheads you seriously need to get this! 30 ml is great for testing - just makes my feel radiant and my acne blemishes have started fading away....
