very gentle salicylic acid

my skin is very irritable.  Rosacea, oily mid face, sensitive. dry other places.  This is very easy to put on since liquid. then i can layer what i need for other problems without an extra layer.  It sinks right in like water.  There are a couple more liquid types of this from Paula.   i only tried one other... that one i didn't like.  turned spots red at first and felt sticky.  This doesn't do that, plus it is so gentle that i can have it on and exercise.  I used it continuously last year and stopped this last summer to try another product.  my pores looked and were more junky not using this.  So i'm back to it and going to use same amount of days, at least 5/week.

The best!

I've used this BHA liquid for years, it's a must have in my skin routine. It has transformed and refined the texture of my skin, and is the only product I've found that's both gentle and effective for my acne/rosacea prone skin. This product clears my pores and keeps my skin from getting congested, at the same time giving me a refreshed, brighter complexion. I still get breakouts but not nearly as many, and I never scar anymore. I don't use a cotton pad, I prefer to pour a little on my hands directly and smooth over my face. No dryness, no greasiness. It's perfect!

The perfect simple BHA toner

I absolutely love this BHA solution!! It doesn't contain any irritating ingredients and the anti-redness claims really do hold up as it has helped even out my skin tone. I have noticed fewer blackheads and a reduction in pore size. Will definitely keep using it as my go to BHA.

The SMELL - Vomit

I so wanted love this. It did exactly what it said, reduced redness. It was like magic. However, I had to return it because the smell is so awful. If you've had babies and breastfed, you know the smell of breast milk baby vomit. It's literally that. I couldn't stomach it. Went back!

Completely Saved My Skin

First off, this is my first review ever on a product but it's so good I had to say something! I started using the CLEAR line (cleanser, exfoliating solution, clearing treatment) 4 months ago after struggling with blackheads and tiny clusters of whiteheads around my nose/chin for a few years. I tried a lot of different products (masks, serums, spot treatments) including prescription but they either didn't work or caused redness/peeling. The CLEAR line has rid me of the persistent whiteheads/blackheads without any redness or peeling. Personally, I think the star of the line is the exfoliating solution. I saw results within the first 3 days and it also helped with my larger pores.

Gentle but effective

I've used for at least 2 years, on at least my 3rd maybe 4th bottle. I have extremely sensitive skin. This product has never irritated me once and am less oily during day. I don't believe its deep cleaning oil from pores or treating them. I think its more surface oil plus non irritating. its been a wonderful product for me despite weather, or sensitivities.

Really wanted this to work...

I really wanted this exfoliator to work as it was recommended to me by my sister and she swears by it (and her skin has gone through an amazing transformation). After two weeks of using I noticed that my skin was becoming oily and that my pores were still clogged. I have normal skin and smaller pores but around my nose and on my chin my pores are a bit bigger and I can sometimes notice they're clogged and wanted that gone. This didn't help the clogged pores and also didn't seem to make the pores smaller. Trying a different Paula's Choice exfoliator to see if maybe something else works better because I really love this brand but really didn't love that it made my skin produce more oil than normal.

Best Toner ever!

My redness has definitely reduced since using this. and i never hype products. i went into this with no expectations. it has licorice, panthenol and allantoin which are skin soothing and strengthening to the skin barrier (all clinically shown to do so). I got it because of the ingredients but that usually doesn't mean much if the product isn't formulated nicely, but this is so nice. unlike their black bottle 2% BHA, this isn't so moisturizing. it feels like water and does a great job of cleaning up all the leftover dirt from my face. i use it almost every morning, sometimes i dont if my skin feels kind of stripped. i rinse my face in the morning then use this on a cotton pad and gunk always shows up on the pad. it feels like water and just does the job. nothing special doesn't feel super nice but definitely cleans up all the leftover dirt. i dont use at night cuz my double cleanse takes off everything. it would be too irritating to use at night. this is not the gentlest product for my skin but i can tolerate it pretty well for the most part.

Perfect gentle liquid exfoliator

I use about three times a week in the PM. It's helped with the blemishes on my face and built my skin to be more resilient.

Great toner for acne-prone

I've been happy with this toner, and it does what it promises to do. I have been using it for over 2 months, and it has definitely been helping my skin issues. I've hardly had any breakouts since using it, and if an occasional pimple pops up, they seem to have less redness and go away significantly faster than when I was using other acne products. I use this in conjunction with the CLEAR cleanser, and I use both only in my morning skincare rountine. It hasn't dried out my skin and it doesn't have that strong, alcohol scent that many other acne-related products seem to have. I would recommend this for those dealing with mild or occasional breakouts.
