When the breakout hits, this Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant from PAULA’S CHOICE is an essential in your skin care armoury. Ideal for blemish-prone, oily or combination types, this non-abrasive formula is laced with BHA salicylic acid to remove dead skin cells both on the skin’s surface and within the pore.

Aiding salicylic acid in its blemish-clearing mission, methylpropanediol enhances absorption so you can get the most out of each and every ingredient, while simultaneously boosting hydration levels, and green tea extract delivers a hefty dose of antioxidants to soothe and protect. With a light and non-sticky gel consistency, the formula sinks easily into skin and can be quickly followed by your favourite moisturiser.

Magic in a bottle

I've suffered with acne for years. This seriously calmed down my acne massively and i like to use it alongside niacinimide and it helps so much with the scarring. It lasts soooo long as well!

Alright

I have combo skin and it made my skin soo sticky I didn’t really like it and it also didn’t work at all for me, it didn’t make my skin breakout but also didn’t "heal" it.

The bottle advises you use this once or twice daily... I did this and it made me break out even more. Using it daily as advised gave me cystic acne. I then started using once a week and it was much better for my skin, my skin improved but only after using once a week. My skin type is pretty normal/dry and it worked okay. I would also add that you should allow time for the product to be absorbed into the skin, otherwise when you layer your products they will start to pill.

Love it

I usually used the liquid version twice a week, on my combination/dry skin, and often felt that it was slightly oily/greasy with issues to sink in, no matter how little I applied. But this one is wonderful. It spreads easily, is not oily/greasy and sinks in beautifully. It layers nicely with other products and works just as good if not better than the liquid version, when it comes to results. Will definitely be repurchasing this one.

Forever grateful

I waited a HOLE MONTH for this product (thank you Brexit and Christmas and New Year). In this month my skin went crazy. I was having acne for about 5 months and my other BHA product was about to finish when I ordered this and thought it was going to arrive fast. It really wasn't fast. My skin freaked out and I got a lot of breakouts, very deep and inflamed. Then this product arrived THANK GOD. It was not quick results because my acne was intense but with solid use (4 months) my skin is clear. I still have hyperpigmentation left but there are no more bumps on my skin. I wish I could post a photo. If you have acne and are thinking about buying this, go for it. It will be worth it.

Game changer

I have that strange skin type that’s oily/dry/normal all at once. I used to get regular breakouts and had a lot of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation because of it. This stuff is insane! Not only does it seem to work almost overnight, the effects just keep going with continued use :D

Not for sensitive skin

This states for all skin types and I desperately wanted to love it as it came highly recommended by a friend. However, this left my skin feeling irritated, dehydrated, red, and in need of a skin barrier repair. I was using twice a week to begin but after a couple of weeks and no improvement with the effects, I was getting I stopped using. I would say for anyone with sensitive/dry skin to try the small travel size to see how skin reacts. This personally is not for all skin types but I can’t deny my friends skin results from using this (she has combo/oily skin)

Great

I love this product, it makes my skin so much smoother and brighter. I use it after a moisturiser to stop it from drying out my skin.

So far so good

Been using the BHA 2% gel for 2 weeks now and definitely see results in my Pores. Specifically, I got it to help with the appearance of enlarged pores, along with a few other products that I'm slowly introducing to my skin. I'm using this daily PM only and have no complaints so far. I would recommend using a moisturiser after and a niacinamide/other moisturising toners before applying as it may dry out the skin a bit. That's how I sandwich it :) Pores are visibly smaller after the 1st application, and it's only improved with time for me.
