Meh

It got such hype, but personally, this did nothing. My nose and cheek got flaky, where most of the blackheads n stuff were. Don’t recommend it.

The liquid is far better

Bought this by mistake thinking it was the Paula's Choice liquid exfoliant (which I’ve bought before and really like). When it arrived I thought I’d give it a go rather than returning it but I wish I had sent it back. It’s nowhere near as effective as the liquid from the same range, with regular use of that I notice a difference in my skin. I also find it sits on my skin making it difficult to layer other products on top. Buy the liquid instead!

Left with acne scars

I started using this product back in January 2021 due to having acne-prone skin. I was aware of the purging which may happen so continued using it despite having more breakouts than before. I thought the purging would stop after a month of using it but unfortunately, it did not stop and I am now left with acne scars that I cannot get rid of. Be careful when purchasing!

Good but not..

Be careful with this product, it’s very strong!! I use it maybe twice a week after cleansing. The results are good and my skin glows after using it, however it dries my skin out a lot of I use too much. So I have to be very careful with it. Start with using every two three days or I think the benefits reverse.

Love it

I’ve been waiting for ages for this to come back in stock and it finally has! I started using this at the beginning of lockdown due to my skin becoming really red, oily and spotty from wearing a mask all day at work. I was desperate for something to work and this was magic. I was a bit anxious to use due to having sensitive skin but I suffered no reaction and used every other night to begin with. Whenever I used this I noticed a dramatic reduction in redness of spots and scarring (I need to learn to not pop spots!) and my mascne really started to reduce. I really love this product. I got the small bottle first (which lasted ageeees) and have just purchased the full size version. I would highly recommend and although it seems expensive it will last a good few months.

Be careful!

This product was so highly reviewed I had to try it. Unfortunately it made my skin red and it stung, especially at the corners of my eyes.

The best

This is one of my favourite skincare products! I have fairly dry sensitive skin and this has helped keep my skin clear without being too harsh. I always recommend this to my friends as it is so good, I find its suited to most skin types.

This works

Tried everything for my dehydrated but congested skin. Oily T zone, blackheads on nose and chin, and pimples often popping up on forehead. Tried this product and genuinely saw a change after one use. I know - sounds like marketing rubbish - but it’s true. Skin far less oily and I’m able to use my serums and moisturisers without feeling like I’m clogging it up further. Blackheads not gone but noticeably reduced and oily congested forehead 80% better after two weeks of use. My nose has become a little dry from daily use so I may reduce to every other day now. But honestly - this product does what it says it does. Get it!

WOW!

I've been suffering from enlarged pores and blackheads for a few months now and have tried everything. Nothing works. This is a game-changer!!! I've been using the Clear cleanser followed by the BHA and already after 4 uses, I can see a difference!!! I can NOT wait to see what my skin looks like after a month of use! If you are still trying to decide whether to try this or not...buy it...immediately!
