game changer

After trying countless BHA products from other brands to control my combo skin, this was the only one that really seemed to do the trick. My T-zone breakouts are finally starting to clear up! This was also my first Paula's Choice product and I am officially a convert. I use this once or twice per day, as my first product layer right after cleansing. I wait 20 minutes to give the product time to absorb into my pores and work its magic and then follow up with an AHA toner to clean up any remaining debris, followed by an oil free moisturizer. Its become a staple skincare item for me this summer, I use this product religiously and I just opened my second bottle the other day.

Favorite Exfoliant!

This is a really nice exfoliant though I think I still need a bit more time to see if it works. Not drying though!

Has Curbed my Acne Breakouts!!

I first bought this not really knowing its a chemical exfoliant, never having used one either. I use a prescription Trentonin cream at night and I initially felt that using both products would be too much for anyone, but especially my sensitive skin. Once I started using it though I immediately saw a difference, I did not break out during my period like I normally do (even on Trentonin). I'm hooked and it's now part of my skin routine. I use it only once daily after washing face at night and then wait at least an hour and a half and then put on Trentonin. I have had no major dryness and less acne! I highly recommended this product.

Works well but start slow!

I switched to the extra strength from the regular strength formula when I wasn't getting the results I was looking for. This seems to be helping to reduce my blackheads in my T-zone, but I did not heed the directions to start slow with this and now my skin is dry and slightly peeling! This is totally my fault, but be aware! I was using this once nightly and now I use it only in my T-zone every other night.

Does not aggravate sensitive skin

I have extremely sensitive skin that is prone to redness. I use this as a chemical exfoliant a few times a week and Is gentle enough to use a few times a week. It doesn't sting and I notice my face looks less congested after using this.

Too greasy for my liking

I guess it's good but it is greasy. And I have oily t-zone and don't want oiliness there. Tackiness is left long after application

Good Product

This is a really effective product but should be used with care for people with sensitive skin. For me the perfect balance was using this 2-3 times a week and layering a great moisturizer on top to avoid irritation.

good for non daily use

Too harsh for everyday use, but good to smooth out skin when used occasionally, i use retina a regularly and sometimes i need a little help smoothing out my skins texture this does the trick but i wouldn't use often because i find it drying, if used regularly

Great for acne

I started using this BHA about two years ago-back when I had acne (occasionally cystic), enlarge pores around my cheeks, and blackheads on nose and chin. I worked my way up to using twice a day, as initially it was a little drying on my combo/dry skin, but I'd say this is one of the more effective while still being gentle products I've found. I now get maybe one to four active pimples a month, usually around that time of the month, my pores are still visible but a lot smaller, and the blackheads are mostly gone (still there a bit on my nose, but they aren't something I typically notice unless I'm looking at them with a magnifying mirror). I continue to use this to help with the few breakouts I do have and to keep my pores in check, but it's a great product that works well with my other skincare and sits nicely under makeup, too.
