Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 25% AHA and 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel 30ml

From the brand behind the beauty industry’s favourite BHA toner comes a powerful, once-weekly mask that resurfaces to reveal radiant, smooth skin. Formulated to visibly smooth wrinkles, refine rough, bumpy texture, brighten your tone and unclog congested pores, it’s safe to say that the 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel is a veritable overachiever.

Powered by a medley of exfoliating acids, PAULA’s CHOICE’s 25% AHA + 2% BHA Exfoliant Peel gets to work in just 10 minutes to counter congested pores, smooth rough skin and reveal a radiant glow.

The concentrated, rinse-off peel harnesses water-soluble AHAs (8.4% glycolic acid, 7.1% lactic acid, 5% mandelic acid, 2.5% tartaric acid and 2% malic acid, to be exact) and oil-soluble salicylic acid to achieve multi-level resurfacing action. That’s a fair few acids, we know, but they’re balanced by calming plant extracts such as allantoin, bisabolol and plant-derived butterfly pea flower extract (the ingredient behind the blend’s natural lilac colour) to soothe irritation and reduce the signs of redness. Beyond fighting breakouts, diminishing blackheads and smoothing your skin, you can expect the peel to reveal hydrated, supple and luminous skin post-rinse.

Weekly, apply a generous amount to clean, dry skin, avoiding the immediate eye area and lips. Leave on for ten minutes then rinse using warm water. Pat dry. Do not use other exfoliants at the same time as this product. Do not use more than once per week.

Amazing stuff !

This stuff is amazing ! I much prefer this over DE’s Sukari baby facial . Only wish it was slightly cheaper ..as for the price you don’t get a lot of use out of the tube .

I don't think my skin was this smooth when I was born

I was a little wary about trying this product as I suffer from eczema round my eyes and whilst this wouldn't be touching that area, it can be triggered by anything harsh going on my face. I needn't have worried, it feels incredibly gentle, I only experienced very mild tingling, and once it was washed off I can honestly say I've never felt my skin smoother! It felt like a bit of a pricey gamble for something I might not have been able to continue using but I'm so glad I took the risk!

Smoothness guaranteed!

I have tried a lot of peels and now I can stop my search for the best one! This mask is powerful but not overpowering. You can feel the effects right away - your skin will feel super smooth just after your first application! I have also noticed my hyperpigmentation fading after just a few uses of this mask. While it is does not sting as much as other AHA peels/masks, I would still be cautious if you have sensitive skin or have a acid-heavy routine. If you struggle with texture and hyperpigmentation, give this a go, you won't be disappointed!

Great pick me up!

I tend to go overboard with chemical exfoliants - then I'm quickly reminded of my redness prone, sensitive skin... This has been a great addition to my now 'gentle' routine. I pop it on every Thursday eve and after 10 minutes, wash it off with no issue or redness and can see the glow almost immediately. This has made such a different to my congested areas. If you can sensitive skin but want the glow that only a great chemical exfoliant can give to you - then this is for you !

Very good

I am not a fan of the skin perfecting liquid exfoliant from the same brand so was sceptical when given this to try. The iridescent purplish liquid looked questionable at first sight and it smelt acidic, this concentration must be quite high I thought. After the initial slightly stinging sensation (definitely stronger than the products I am using), it settled and I patiently waited for the 10 mins to be over. The mask washed off easily with a warm cloth and water. The result - my skin looked brighter and soft to touch. No redness or sign of irritation and it stayed bright and soft the next day. I will definitely continue using it in the weeks to come. So little effort to reap the benefits, that's MY kind of cult product!

Gentle but effective peel!

I’m always a bit scared to use peels, but as a lover of the Paula’s Choice BHA Liquid Exfoliant I was really excited to try this and see what the results were on my skin. The texture is lovely and cooling to apply, and I love the iridescent colour! Keeping the peel on for 10 minutes, it felt really gentle on my skin with very little tingling (although I had a couple of spots that had a bit more of a burn, but I kind of like that in a weird way as it feels like it’s doing something…). My skin felt SO soft after removing the mask, with no redness or irritation. I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and my skin definitely feels brighter with more of a glow - this is certainly something I’ll reach for now when my skin needs a pick me up! I’m sure a 5* review will be coming once I’ve used it for a few more months…

Love Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting Exfoliant Peel

This wonderful product has been a part of my skincare routine for the last 5 weeks. I have very sensitive skin so I have started by leaving it on my skin for 6 minutes instead of 10. I had no redness or sensitivity at all so doe the last 4 weeks I have been leaving it on my face for the full 10 minutes. It has improved the appearance of my pores and given my face a more rejuvenated look! I genuinely recommend it! :)

Effective

I am a regular user of AHA and BHA, so was definitely curious to see how this would work on my skin type. Not only is this product visually so pretty to look at, but to my surprise my skin looked flawless smooth and plump after just one use. I do sometimes have sensitive skin, so I was almost expecting this to have some kind of reaction. As I use other methods of active acids, I will likely only be using this every 7-10 days. Would recommend if you already use AHA and BHA!

A hard-working product

I used this with some fairly high expectations and was pleasantly surprised with the result. I've only ever used one other exfoliant peel and I think that this has trumped that other one. After one wash, it does genuinely reveal smoother and softer skin. Howeverrrr, I would be careful with this if you have sensitive skin because you don't want to cause irritation. Also dial back on the actives so you really get the benefits from this. I also like the pretty purple iridescent shimmer hahaha

Gentle yet effective

I am an avid acid user (maybe a little too much at times!) so my skin has built up a tolerance to acids and can handle tough exfoliation. This Paula's Choice mask has a wonderful texture, colour and consistency. I personally don't feel any irritation or stinging (as can sometimes be the case with peels) when I put this on and my skin feels soft and noticeably brighter after use. Will definitely be keeping this on rotation in my masking routine to help appease my hyperpigmentation.
