I think there’s no introduction needed but I have long stalked Paula’s Choice. Their products are always talked about and I always go to their site when I have a skincare question. I like that they are able to explain ingredients and other skincare complexities very simply and fact-based.
Their best seller, the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant ($29.50), promises to exfoliate dead skin cells, clear pores, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains green to help soothe inflammation and shields the skin against free-radical damage.
I have heard so much about this product that it made me happy just to see it on my collection. Unfortunately, that also meant that I have super high expectations on the effectiveness of the product. It surprisingly didn’t sting upon application. It also has a slight tackiness to it, almost like a light oily feel. I use this thrice a week at night after my essence. After two months, I’ve already noticed how this helped smooth the texture of my skin, especially on parts that I have the largest pores. This also helped eradicate blackheads on my nose and kept my pores clear and decongested. As I’ve been mentioning in my past posts, I’ve had such good skin the past months – my complexion is more even, brighter, and I haven’t had a blemish, even on days when I’m hormonal. I believe this greatly helped on achieving that as this even helps squash upcoming zits that plan to show up.
