    Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant Reviews

    This is a game-changer for people who suffer with acne
    Fantastic!
    This is the best product that I’ve found, especially for clearing skin after breakout scarring. A must-have!!!!!
    Life changing
    This is something that I will use forever. I noticed a difference in my skin texture after a couple of days of use. I also barely get any spots at all anymore!
    Amazing life saving product!
    It’s been almost 4 weeks and I can say my skin has improved by 90%! I do get the odd spots but mainly small whiteheads and I mean small ... almost CANT see types! I think it might be from wearing a mask about 2 hours a day for travel. But my pores are smaller and clearer! I have to say I purged for about 1-2 weeks... large spots that disappeared within 24-48hours and never were painful. I was shocked as I suffered from acne for nearly 9 years and this was the first time they healed so quickly. After purging I haven’t got any large spots and my skin is smoother and clearer. I wish I tried this before! It’s incredible! It didn’t dry my skin out but I only use it 4 times a week and evenings only. I also used a serum and moisturiser after using it, so I guess that helped. Definitely worth every penny!
    Try it!
    So I’ve only had this for a couple of weeks but I really like it thus far. Doesn’t dry my skin out (I use a good moisturiser after). I only use it at night to avoid sun damage.
    Great Product
    I use this everyday, it’s amazing. I have very sensitive skin & this causes no problems. My skin is clearer, fresher, and really helps to reduce the appearance of open pores on my nose.
    Great Addition To My Routine!
    Was very sceptical about this at first as the reviews either seem to be 'didn't work at all' or 'this is amazing'. I suggest giving this a go, not only does it help treat acne that you may currently be facing but is a great PREVENTOR. Think this was the main game changer for me is that I haven't seemed to get any large break outs since using daily (in night time routine), only small pimples that don't always emerge/ disappear quickly. I don't apply to a cotton pad as this just soaks up most of the product so I apply straight to face. This does dry out the skin so I apply a hydrating moisturiser to counteract this. Very fair price as this does last a while!
    Best one out there
    This baby is a game-changer. Power-packed! A thin layer is more than enough and a little goes a long way. It unclogs my pores like magic. Products that would otherwise be on borderline for breaking me out stay put when I layer this in. If it is too strong then must be used less frequently. This treatment based on salicylic acid is excellent for my oily acne-prone skin. Comes in small as well as the big size and lasts a long long time. Apply it for a busy morning or night's sleep, I follow on with SPF in the day and good moisturizer at both times. My only tip would be to not overstep the thin layer whether it is short time wear or long night one. You may risk over-exfoliating or ruining your skin barrier.
    New Staple Product!
    This was the first time that I used a liquid exfoliant and now I cannot put it down. It sinks into the skin easily and leaves no residue, I simply swipe it across the skin with a cotton pad after I have cleansed my skin. I was worried about using this with combination skin but it did not emphasise my dryer areas, if anything it hydrated them. My skin is smoother with less texture and my pores are smaller. It feels hydrated, clean, and overall looks a lot clearer and healthier. Everyone should try this and I will be recommending it to everyone! 10/10!
    Amazing product!
    After many years and since have experienced more spots (maybe due to hormone changes) I often have cystic acne on my chin anyway so I have been trying all tea tree and spit treatments with no luck. I have dry skin so I was hesitant on trying this but I have been using this once a day, every two days, applying with my hands and have had NO spots. When I see or feel a bump under my skin I pop this on and the next day they’re gone!
    Amazing!!
    Been using this at night every other night or every two nights and I have seen such a difference. My skin looks smoother and nearly all my blemishes have gone. When this bottle runs out I will be purchasing another. Highly recommend!!
    It is what it is
    Best BHA exfoliant. You will see results, and you will repurchase.
    Dried my skin out
    I was excited to try this as I've seen amazing results on instagram but after using as instructed it has not cleared up my skin and has made my skin drier than it has ever been. I'm not impressed.
    Brilliant product
    Love this product. When I first used it, it did tingle, but it felt like my skin was super clean.
    Good
    I’m hoping the other reviews of this product are correct and it really does start to work after 4-6 weeks because I’m 3 weeks in and don’t see much difference. I have high hopes!
    Just water
    Didn’t work for me
    love it
    a life change product. saved my skin from acne
    Believe the hype
    I have to admit I was bit skeptical of all the ads bombarding me on YouTube but this is one product that does what it says. I have a combination skin with some dry patches on cheeks and oiliness in t-zone. After a month of use every other day my skin is looking way clearer than it has in years. I particularly like that any spots that occasionally appear on my chin (maskne?) seem to resolve themselves much quicker and are less angry than before. Have been and will continue to repurchase.
    Amazing
    Helped clear my skin up a lot but don’t use too much starting off as it’s quite strong, but it is very good would highly recommend it.
    Love it
    I loved it so much that I even recommended this to my friend, and she loves it
    Saved my skin!
    This product has transformed my skin! Over the past year, I’ve formed acne on my cheeks and nothing would help to calm it. I have only been using this product for about 3 weeks but already I am noticing a HUGE difference. It has reduced my acne and improved my skin texture massively by cleaning deep into my pores and removing congestion. I started using it daily but moved to every other day now as it can leave my skin quite dry, but I’d rather that than sore acne! Highly recommend!
    Worth the hype
    I bought this product after seeing it be recommended so many times on tiktok, YouTube etc. and I have to say it is worth the hype. Really helps to even out texture and clear up spots quickly. I wouldn't recommend using it twice a day like it says on the bottle, once every few days is plenty and means the product will last longer.
    All the things that I had read it’s true
    I read a lot about this product. I can assure this product it’s all the good things that I heard and read about. I can see the differences between now and before.
    Insane!!
    I have never written a review for a product but I just had to for this!! My skin has never been smoother or clearer! I have very spot prone skin & always used to suffer with under the skin bumps but since using this product, the texture of my skin has improved dramatically. My skin looks so clear and glowy and it has improved my confidence so much. If I do get a spot (which is pretty much never now!), it clears up within a day! Do not hesitate to buy this product! It’s a miracle worker! Also you do not need to use much so the small bottle will last a long time. I apply it with my fingers to reduce wastage on a cotton pad!
    excellent
    This has made all my spots go away I had very inflamed spots all around my chin and cheek area and they are all gone.
    Amazing
    This product is definitely worth the hype. Love it!
    Holy grail
    The only thing that helps keep my skin clear and the only product that shows the difference. Tried numerous products for my acne but I keep coming back to it.
    Amazing!
    I have lots of acne scars left and new spots come and go frequently! After using this for about 3 weeks I now rarely have any new spots and if I do it’s only 1 and dried out within a day! The scars have definitely reduced redness but are still there. But as it’s only been three weeks I think that’s amazing! Totally recommend!
    Everyone just needs this
    Bought this a year ago and it's just done wonders. Normally use twice a week but will increase if breaking out and this just saves my skin. I have dry skin too and don't find it too drying either.
    Impressive!
    I've been using this for around 2 weeks, specifically on my nose and chin which are super congested and where I always have blackheads/ sebaceous filaments. Well, I used too anyway! Over the period of time so far, there has been a noticeable improvement so I will definitely be continuing with this product. I have the travel size which lasts so long! The full size must last at least a year on this basis which is excellent value for money. I use it every other evening directly after cleansing and leave for 10-15 mins.
    Amazing Product
    I'm a regular user of this product and I would highly recommend it. I see a difference in my skin when using it
    I’ve seen a difference
    I suffer chronically from enlarged pores and redness on my nose and chin that have worsened with age. It’s unlikely I’ll ever find a magic, permanent fix, but since adding this product to my routine, I have noticed a difference. Blackheads are less visible and my complexion is smoother, more even, and less dull. My skin can be quite sensitive but there’s been no bad reaction, even from the first few uses. I’ve been using it for about a month, so fingers crossed I’ll see continued improvement. I’m giving 4 rather than 5 stars because I live in hope that I’ll eventually find something that 100% solves my problem.
    Amaaaaazing!
    I don’t have acne I may get the odd whitehead but I do have largish pores, sensitive skin, redness and dry patches and a itchy irritated forehead.... well I did.... then I started using this. At first I’d feel tingles on my forehead and my face would feel rather hot and my cheeks would go red but after using it for three weeks my skin is no longer reactive and it is calm and clear and smooth. I use it every second day rotating with Paul’s choices AHA. Make sure you’re using good moisturising creams Over the top and watch your skin transform!
    Worked wonders
    Has helped clear my acne/ post-acne marks fading also and fewer blackheads will be repurchasing the full size.
    Amazing!!
    I’ve wanted to try this for ages and it did not disappoint!! Reduced my pores and helped clear my skin. I have quite bad cystic acne and haven’t had anything close to a breakout since I started using this. I find pouring it onto clean hands and rubbing it directly onto my face works better than using a cotton pad. Worth the money and will 100% purchase again!
    Definitely worth the hype!!
    Fantastic! I have brought so many products over the years and I must say this hands down has been the best so far. It definitely isn’t a miracle cure for everything but it has definitely improved my skin better than anything else I have tried.
    Bomb
    Love's it. It does what it claims
    My skin is the best it’s been in years !
    This amazing product has changed my skin and my life, my pores are so much smaller and my skin is a lot brighter. My acne scars have gone and I hardly ever get any spots! Worth the money!!!
    Has done wonders to my skin!
    I have been using this for about a month now and I can see a massive difference. Skin is smooth and hardly any breakouts. Definitely recommend!
    A life changing bottle...
    I've been using this product for over a year and my skin has changed dramatically. My pores are much smaller, my acne scaring has reduced significantly and I rarely get breakouts anymore. Miracle product.
    Life Changing
    This has really helped reduce my blemishes dramatically! It's quick and easy to use and is very effective!
    Broke out
    After a few days I had a huge break out and it based some severe acne breakouts on my cheeks. Since then it has calmed down however I still feel super sceptical when using it
    Balancing
    I really loved this product. I have to say, don't expect results overnight. Give it a week or two and see the magic for yourself! I also recommend applying it using clean hands instead of cotton rounds! I can see a significant change in the brightness of my skin and my skin has never looked clearer!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE
    This product has changed my life. I have very oily skin and large pores on my nose. This product has changed that significantly. It has helped brighten my overall skin tone, even out all the little bumps on my skin, leaving it smooth and also minimised my pore size. It is expensive but very much worth the money. I use it every day before my moisturiser.
    You need this
    I have recently added this into my skincare routine. I use this only on a morning as I use a Vitamin A treatment on a night but I am obsessed. The texture of my skin has improved so much and it looks radiant all day long.
    Amazing
    I love this, really helps with my pores and leaves skin smooth.
    Amazing
    I wouldn’t say I suffer from acne but I get hormonal breakouts and blackheads which don’t seem to budge. After a couple of weeks of using this product, my skin is clear and glowing and my pores have reduced massively! I have the big bottle but I have recommended several people to try the travel size one and they love it. You won’t regret buying this!
    Wow
    Amazing!
    Holy grail
    This is my 3rd bottle I think ... If you have troubled skin, oily skin and suffer from blackheads ... you HAVE to get this product!! I use this every other day as my morning ‘toner’ and bye bye blackheads! It really is the best on the market!
    Minimizes pores
    As I suffer from enlarged pores on my forehead I've been trying loads of stuff during quarantine. This one reeeeally minimizes them and makes it easier to get dirt out too! I use it in my night routine. Love it!
    New must have
    I’ve suffered with acne on and off for years and recently took a course of prescribed medication to get rid of it. Unfortunately, I was left with no active breaks outs buts lots of pigmentation and blackheads. I slowly introduced this to my skincare regime as I can be prone to reacting and noticed a difference after the 2nd use. My skin was noticeably glowing! Been using it for a month now and my red marks are nearly gone. Will definitely repurchase and keep it as a staple!
    Great for hormonal acne
    I get hormonal acne along my jawline every month. I’ve been using this each morning for a few weeks and not only is it helping existing acne to heal, but this month no new spots have popped up! Will definitely repurchase.
    Good enough
    I wasn't one of the lucky ones who got overnight or game-changing results. BUT... this product did improve the appearance of my large pores and it didn't irritate my super sensitive skin. Easy to use, no bad reaction and some improvement is good enough for me! Will buy it again, maybe the gel version the next time.
    Combination Skin
    I use about 4 drops every use. I use it 3 times a week as I was previously told that that is the maximum you should exfoliate per week and I have had this for 4 months. The bottle may seems small but it is worth while. It doesn’t improve texture but it does help exfoliate whiteheads and blackheads which I used to suffer from all over my forehead. It may improve texture if you increase your uses. I am about to purchase my second bottle before my current ones run out and this time I will start using it twice a day - as the bottle recommends prior to previous beliefs. Only purchase this if you are aiming to get rid of small spots not if you are aiming to improve texture. I also have very dark skin and it doesn’t cause any additional hyperpigmentation, it is quite safe.
    Gamechanger
    After giving birth my skin was all over the place. I had no idea what I could and couldn't use. I purchased this on a whim hoping to save my dry flaky skin. I used it after 3 months and what a game changer. It took 2 weeks for the results to show but my skin was no longer dry. It was hydrated, plumpy and my pregnancy acne cleared away. I love this. I use it every other day morning and night and then apply an SPF. Definitely something I will continue to purchase. Its like I have new skin!! So very happy with it and have recommended to all my mum friends
    Hmmmm...
    At the beginning of they year I completely overhauled my skincare routine to make it easier to complete day and night. This was one of the products I selected to be part of my new routine. I use it once a day (evening) and then use a really intensive moisturiser afterwards. My skin has improved so much, but it is difficult to say which product it is down to as all my routine has changed, as well as being used more consistently. I have normal skin with a slight sensitivity and have found this product to have no negative impact. I apply a small amount to a cotton pad then lightly go over my skin. The only downside of the product is the bottle is quite small, but I have been using it about a month now and still seem to have quite a lot left.
    tiktok made me buy it
    this product is wonderful! my pores have been tightened real nice and i look super smooth! i’ve been trying to find a chemical exfoliant for ages and finally saw a tiktok about this product and immediately went to purchase. i have really dry skin but it doesn’t really strip any hydration away from my face - probably because i use a serum and moisturiser right after. however i just found out that there’s a gel version which i will be purchasing once i finish this one
    Just get it.
    I’m always skeptical of really hyped reviews but I swearrrr this is the most impactful thing I’ve ever used on my skin and I have suffered from acne for ten years now (and I mean mild-moderate acne. I’m not talking about a couple of spots lol). I will say though, my acne seems to be heading in the direction of really calming down even before I started using this. So I don’t want to sell anyone a dream! It’s more amazing for the way it makes my skin look and feels in general. My skin has never felt so smooth and I really enjoy using it at night because when I wake up, my skin looks the best it’s looked in a long while. Pores seem so much smaller and less noticeable, my skin has this healthy glow (not shiny/ oily like usual) and I think it helps to heal breakouts quicker than they would in real-time. I also suggest using it 2/3 times a week at first then gradually using once a day and then a couple of weeks in, go for twice a day if you feel your skin can take it. I’ve read a few reviews of people saying their skin reacted badly but I think that can happen if you go all in too quickly! As it is quite drying initially. Just make sure you use a heavy moisturiser afterward and listen to your skin :) (I use a Moisturizer with HA which works great)
    Amazing Product
    I bought the travel size of the product, and I was surprised with how tiny it was, but two months after daily use and it is still not over! I love this product and will be ordering the bigger one too! You can see the remarkable change instantly, it makes your face glowy and pore-free!
    Miracle in a Bottle
    I was quite intrigued by this product as I’ve heard a lot about it and it was all SO positive. I have been using this product for a month now and my skin has never looked better. I honestly cannot recommend it enough. It lasts ages considering the size of the bottle and the results can be seen within a few uses! This is easily my favourite skincare product I have tried and will continue to purchase when empty.
    Number 1 product
    I have had stubborn blackheads on my nose since I was a teenager and I’ve tried everything. This is the first product that has given me visible results. I am hooked!
    MUST HAVE FOR OILY SKIN
    I suffer a lot with oily skin especially on my nose which causes visible blackheads. I’ve tried everything but nothing works consistently. I decided to try this out and wow I was very impressed. I noticed a difference within 2 days after using it AM and PM. I’ve been using this for 2 weeks now and the oiliness on my face has calmed down and my blackheads are almost gone!! This is a must for skincare!!!
    Amazing!!
    I’ve never ever been someone to have a ‘skincare routine’ but I watched someone’s and copied and my god!!! I have oily/combination skin and this is incredible! My spots are clear instantly, if I get a breakout it’s over within two days and clear again! My skin looks and feels so smooth and I feel like it’s all down to this holy grail product! Highly recommend!
    Love it
    I love this product. I saw it on Tik Tok (I’m up to try anything) and it has become my favourite product. I couldn’t live without it now.
    Brilliant!
    When I first tried this out, I was using it AM and PM and found it was drying my skin, so I started using it once 2/3 times a week and can see a huge difference in my skin. I LOVE this product and will definitely buy again.
    Glass skin in a bottle!
    So, I’m on my 2nd big bottle now. Lasts for ages. Got my first end of August, recently repurchased this as OMG my skin always looks like glass the morning after I’ve used it! When I initially purchased it, I had really stressed skin - bumps on my forehead, uneven texture, massive hard spots which were super sore and I knew would leave a mark on my face forever and a day.
    Amazing
    I was suffering with break outs on my nose & chin every single month. I’ve tried so many things with no joy. Using this has made such a difference. Breakouts are not as frequent & face is so much calmer & under control. Love it.
    BHA
    First of all, the price for the small version of 30ml is too high. It looks like a Tester lol It will not make your pore smaller over the night, because that is impossible. So do not believe the hype. But it will exfoliate your skin nice and clean your pores. After the use, you can feel a sticky and greasy film over the face but after 15-20 minute, it will absorb into the skin. Do not use it every day, more like 2-3 times a week.
    Get this without thinking
    I had this HUGE breakout, I tried this stuff and let me tell you those pimples went down very quickly in like 2 days (I applied it once only )
    Love it
    At first I had to use it every other day but once my skin got used to it I could use every day and it’s really helped my blemish prone skin! I’ve ordered the bigger bottle as the small one didn’t last me very long but will definitely be keeping this in my routine.
    Don't get the 30ml!
    I can't believe it's £10.00 for such a tiny, tiny product. It feels like paying a premium for what's essentially a tester - I was shocked.
    LIFE SAVER
    I struggle from rosacea and acne blemishes. I've been using this for two weeks and everyone has been noticing a difference. I've been getting compliments on how radiant and bright my skin is recently. Not only that, I've noticed some acne blemishes have started fading away.
    Smoother skin
    I initially bought this to help with my acne and scarring - I found it did help with my acne a little bit but not so much my scarring sadly. It wasn't drying on my skin and it made my skin feel smoother and look brighter. The bottle however did leak a lot and it ran out very quickly because of this - even being stored upright it somehow was leaking out at the top! I'd pick it up and would feel the product on my hands and see a small puddle underneath the bottle. I'll maybe try it again another time but I won't be hurrying to repurchase.
    Lovely Product!
    I was sceptical so I bought the travel size, and I will be purchasing the full size once I have used it all! After a few days I instantly noticed my skin looking brighter and smoother. I had bumps on my jawline that had reduced significantly, a month or so on now and all are completely gone. Less blackheads and breakouts too! I now only use it a few nights a week to maintain it.
    Love this liquid exfoliator
    Love how this works without drying my skin out unlike many products containing salicylic acid. Still using the trial size as a little goes a long way but I think I will be ordering the full size.
    Can't live without this!
    Ordered the mini size to try before committing to the full size. I noticed a change in my skin just a week or two after using and have since purchased the full size as I now can't be without this! The texture of my skin has visibly improved and my skin looks healthy and lovely. I haven't yet seen a huge difference in my pores, I still have blackheads around my nose and chin but will wait a full 8 weeks to see final results.
    Love love love this
    My best friend bought me the mini to test out on my birthday and I loved it so much I bought the full size not long after using it! I would really recommend getting the smaller size first to see if it works on your skin it also lasts like a good 4 weeks so I think it would be a good shout. But I love it so much. The scent isn't bad as it isn’t fragranced just the salicylic acid. I love how it makes my skin feel protected like there's an invisible film over it. Love this stuff.
    Magic!
    I have struggled with acne on my cheeks and chin for some time now. I have tried multiple products without result. This works wonders! It worked after a few uses, the pimples fade quicker and the redness has almost disappeared. Love it! I have dry/combo skin, and I use this 3 times a week.
    Worth the hype
    Can see why this product has become a cult favourite. It's one of those products that I'm not sure I see much benefit from while I'm using it, but when I don't use it I definitely notice a difference in my skin. Helps to keep oil at bay in the t-zone for sure. I use every other PM as I find it quite strong and my skin gets a little flaky if I use it everyday.
    Worth the hype
    I have combination/oily skin that is prone to becoming very dry as well if products are too harsh! This product is truly a game-changer in my skincare routine. I used it a couple of times without using a good moisturiser and my skin did dry out, but since getting a good hydrating moisturiser to apply afterwards, my skin has never looked or felt better. After 3 days I had people commenting on how good my skin looked, and after a week of use, I have stopped using foundation altogether! I do not suffer from spots so I cannot comment, but my texture and pores have significantly reduced, trust me, buy it!
    Smooth skin, smaller pores
    Instantly impressed by this, i put it on before bed and woke up the next morning with super soft skin - my pores looked smaller and literally most of my blackheads were gone! Its not going to cure all your skin problems and I still get some spots but I do think this is making a big difference and I will be repurchasing
    Amazing for clearing skin
    I was suffering from problematic skin from wearing a mask and had a small sample of this already and I noticed within a week, using this every night my skin was a lot cleaner and calmer and fewer spots. I was concerned this would dry out my skin but it didn’t, it just calmed my skin and cleared up my skin and the overall tone and redness had calmed down.
    UNREAL!
    OMG! I have suffered with problemstic skin for about 6 years! Always dull and blemished. I thought i’d try this as I heard a few people at work say its good! Literally changed my whole skin. Tried the mini as I have invested soo much money into skincare products which have simply not worked for me. This is a game changer. I literally used it 2/3 times and family/friends are already just commenting on how bright and fresh my skin looks. When i go on to put spf on after my skin literally feels like butter. I never usually leave reviews on products as i am quite lazy lol but I HAD TO ON THIS. PURCHASING AGAIN DEFINITELY!
    An absolute staple in my routine
    I’ve been using this for about 2 months now after seeing the advert and it has changed my skin! I bought the small 30ml to try and my skin has noticeably got smoother and more glowy, I use every night, I started to use with a cotton pad but I now just apply with my fingers after pouring some in the palm of my hand. I even have about half a bottle left but have already purchased the large bottle! It definitely lasts a long time! I can’t see myself going without this now!
    Can't live without
    this is the best toner for a combo/oily skin type, who have blackheads or dark spots that you want to brighten up, you need to give it a week or 2 of daily use (i use it in the morning before moisturizer), and then you'll start to notice your skin changes and replace itself and also that the blackheads are so cleared. I ran out and then I started to notice the blackheads are back, so I can't be without it!!
    Amazing product!
    This product has done wonders for my skin! I had very oily/spotty prone skin, I use this every day and it’s improved the overall texture of my skin! It’s so soft and I hardler ever get spots anymore! On my second bottle and I will forever purchase this!
    So good
    I have been using this for about 8 months now and I could not be without it. This is by far the best treatment product that I have used to target my congested skin and believe me, I have tried so many. What I love the most about this liquid is how gentle it is and how I can use it every single day as a toner and it doesn’t sensitise or cause any irritation. It simply gives me the best version of my skin without any drama.
    Helped maskne
    I started breaking out in cystic maskne and this not only reduces the bump it makes them less painful too. It has given me some confidence back. Worth the price point for me. Only just started using it so still using it 1/2 times a week to build tolerance. I have oily to combo and Indian skin.
    Great product
    Skin: Combination Skin tone: Deep/Dark Really good at maintaining my skin and keeping it clear. It doesn't dry my skin as I expected as it's not a wash-off product. The residue is slightly oily but I find no problem with it under other products/moisturisers. I like using it before bed once or twice a week and it really does help my sleeping masks work better. The only negative is the high price point, so I try to use it very sparingly.
    Excellent product but bad packaging
    5 stars for product - I have reordered many times as it really helps with congestion. HOWEVER, every bottle I've had leaks. At first thought I was getting dud ones but it's happened with every new bottle. Has no one else had this problem? For such a star product I find it weird that they wouldn't make the packaging better. It's fine when standing up in my bathroom but if it goes into a washrag, everything gets coated in its oily goodness. Not sure how much Cult Beauty can do about this but if you can feedback to Paula's Choice - please fix this as it's an expensive product!
    Good
    Leaves the skin so soft n clear after two weeks of using it. I love it would for sure purchase it again!
    Can't be without it now
    This made a huge difference to the overall condition of my skin. Since using this I only have the odd spot appearing, but disappearing just as fast. Using it am and pm daily. Went on holidays without it and paid for it with outbreaks all over my face after just a few days.
    Great product
    A product that will give results if you are patient and use it correctly.
    Game changer!
    Cannot believe how good this product is. After only using it a week I already visibly can see my pores shrink and my blackheads reduce. I will forever have this part of my routine. Do yourself a favour and purchase this! You only need a few drops for the face too. I have sensitive skin but no irritation occurred at all.
    Allergic reaction?
    So I applied the product with my fingers not too much just a few drops and after about 30 seconds my skin started to burn I looked in the mirror and my face was red! I really had high hopes for this product but sadly I won’t be able to use it anymore. I would reconvene buying the small bottle to test if it works for you.
    The Best Chemical Exfoliant I’ve tried!
    I have combination dry, sensitive skin and I struggle with blackheads and constant breakouts a lot. I could see noticeable results even after using it for the first time. My dehydrated skin felt extremely soft and pores seemed smaller. I use just a few drops all over my face, a couple of times a week with no sensitivity or irritation. Truly a game changer!
    Didn't work for me :(
    I really really really wanted this to work for me as I'd heard such good things, but it wasn't for me. I have blackheads and closed comedones on my chin which I wanted to target but it actually made my skin there WORSE. I had lots of acne-like spots that were painful and sore for the first time in my life! I thought at first my skin was purging but after 2 months of use Ive stopped as it didn't start clearing up like everyone else said. Wouldn't recommend.
    Great product
    I have oily and sensitive skin with breakouts on my chin. First I ordered the little one, just to have an idea. I use it twice a day and I am really surprised, cause it works very well. The makeup does not shine oily anymore and my skin has a very nice texture. Before I used a product with Benzoyl peroxide, but it was bleaching my towels so I decided to change. I use a moisturizer with aloe vera at the end of my routine and so far I'm really pleased. Now I ordered the same product from the clear line.
    Helped my really bad skin
    I had been suffering with really bad breakouts for around a year, this is the only product I’ve found which made a significant impact on my skin and helped clear it up
    Fab
    I absolutely love this, can not live without it! Game changer!!!!!
    The best!
    I can't say enough good things about this product! Keeps my skin clear and glowy. Honestly, if you suffer from acne or frequent breakouts you need this in your life. Even when my skin does decide to act up, this stuff makes it less angry. It does not dry out my skin like other SA products and it's really helping with my scars. Ingredients look clean. Nothing bad to say, it's all love.
    Maskne fighter
    This has quickly become my Holy Grail. Erases blackheads, minimizes pores, keeps the skin clear and bright! Also, SO helpful with preventing and fighting maskne.
    Skin saver
    This is expensive but very much worth it. It’s the only product I’ve ever used which has guaranteed good skin. I would recommend a sample if you’re new to it as some friends have mentioned it wasn’t great on sensitive skin.
    Love it
    I have super sensitive skin so was sceptical about this being suitable for my skin. However I’ve found if I use it once before bed it is enough to tackle any maskne spots but not enough to totally dry out my skin. If I do use it twice a day it is too much but if anything this is a bonus for me! I have found it has smoothed my skin, I no longer feel bumps when I run my hands over my face which is the dream!
    Less blackheads and pimples
    No greasy feelings and excellent in maintaining from blackheads and pimples breakouts.
    Amazing can not recommend enough
    I have struggled with blackheads since I was about 13 and I’m 32 now - despite trying everything nothing has ever worked - until I tried this. This is an amazing product that has become a part of my daily routine and I have recommended to others. Definitely give this a try if you have issues with blackheads
    Holy grail
    Could not live without this product. The perfect exfoliant. I have oily skin and using this every day clears the sebaceous filaments on my nose and keeps my pores unclogged. I use it every morning and sometimes at night too if I’m breaking out a bit and I notice such a difference in my skin whenever I stopped using it. I suffered from loads of tiny bumps all over my forehead which looked suspiciously like fungal acne and using this cleared it up by 80% within DAYS. After a few weeks, it was totally gone! Miracle in a bottle.
    Meh
    I’ve been using this day and night for the past 6 weeks or so and haven’t noticed much of a difference, to be honest. I’ve read so many good reviews singing its praises but it just didn’t really do anything for me! It didn’t make my skin any worse but at the same time, I haven’t noticed any improvement in clearing the hormonal breakouts on my cheeks. This might work for you but give the smaller size a try first.
    Helps with acne even hormonal acne
    It helps with acne and even hormonal acne on chin. It’s makes me glowy also. Good product.
    My skin has never looked so good
    This is the first time I've felt compelled to write a beauty product review. Most products claim they work miracles. Well, for me this one truly does. I've suffered with oily skin and enlarged pores since...forever. Within a few weeks of use, for the first time in my life my pores are significantly reduced. My skin feels like velvet to touch, and it has such a youthful glow. I adore this product! I suspect it'll be a staple on my dressing table for some time to come... Thank you Paula's Choice!
    Amazing
    Great exfoliant. My skin feels really soft and refreshed after use. Will definitely rebuy.
    Dramatic improvement with regular use
    I have dry skin that has been looking dull and lacklustre with recurring breakouts that take forever to heal. This product was recommended to me by my facialist and from the very first time I used it I saw a difference. My skin started glowing from the first application and with continued use the overall appearance of my skin is changed. I’ve been using it about 2 weeks now and my skin feels soft and smooth, looks more radiant and youthful and my breakouts are all but gone. I was not expecting such dramatic results after having tried many other (more expensive!) products without improvement. I will definitely be purchasing this again!
    The missing piece
    My friend recommended this product, I've tried different BHA products before, but i've never been so pleased with the results as I was using this one. I've been dealing with breakouts and hormonal acne the past few years, this has helped my skin dramatically, - also I'm loving the glow it gives me. I'm about to order another bottle - it is truly the missing piece from my skincare routine.
    Horrible
    Do not be fooled by the reviews, I think this may be the worst skincare product ever. It might work on some people but I hate it. It's so harsh and made me break out. My advice would be do not buy.
    Amazing product!!!
    It’s about 3 weeks now since I started using it.. I’m already seeing results.. My skin is clearer, glowing and smoother. It’s very gentle and doesn’t irritate my skin. I use once daily at night so far... Great results... I highly recommend.
    Game changer
    This is my number one skincare product along with advanced night repair by Estée Lauder. This leaves my skin so so clear and really does keep breakouts at bay, I do still get the odd spot but nothing like before , also really helps with blackheads which I get a lot of! It almost brings them to the service more so you can easily squeeze them with really digging your nails/fingers into your skin. If your thinking about trying it just do it you won’t regret .
    Love it!
    I was reacting a mask that left bumps on my face for a week. Nothing worked until I bought the sample and within days I saw results. Bumps disappeared apart from a stubborn pimple which has now reduced. Super gentle on my skin, was expecting it to be harsh but I’ve been using it once daily and I’m amazed at the results! (Adding the full size to my basket now!)
    Must Have
    I had all these annoying tiny bumps on my forehead and this product got rid of them and then some! It has given me the smoothest, softest skin. So glad I can get it again now, nightmare when I ran out during lockdown!!
    Refined Skin
    I can just see the results immediately after 3 days usage, such a miracle one this is, Great for those tiny little bumps, acne, and blackheads. It just gave an overall refined Look and a Good Glow. will keep buying.
    Warning to you all
    After seeing so many amazing 5 star reviews I obviously jumped on the bandwagon to try this... and it was a massive mistake. My skin went from being smooth and clear (with milia on my cheek which is why I bought this) to having acne within just 3 uses. I stopped using this a week ago and my skin is yet to recover and I have so many spots and so much texture. A major confidence knock and something to keep in mind as it’s very disappointing seeing everyone with amazing results when this isn’t the case for some!
    Great product
    I felt my skin more clear and with less bumps and blemishes. I use it 2 or 3 times a week and it works perfectly that way for me, cuz my skin is a lil sensitive
    Great product
    This product can be irritating for dry and sensitive skin. I have oily skin and it is little bit burning from beginning anyway after few use it is very smoothing my skin and get rid of dead skin. I’m using it twice in a week and works perfectly.
    Great product
    My skin was not in a good condition at all but after I started using this “toner” my redness, bumps and hyperpigmentation slowly went away. It’s kinda stripping though, but i just don’t use daily now.
    What's with the hype
    Didn't agree with my skin at all. Broke out within 12 hours. I have extremely sensitive skin. GP advised I have mild acne, I believe this is due to hormone imbalance. Desperate to find a cure. Disheartening thought I'd found a gem Not :-(
    Great product
    The first time I used it, I just couldn't believe it! Even after cleansing and peeling, it still removed sooo much dirt off my face. I use it only at night and about 2-3 times a week. I didn't really like the oilyness it leaves on my skin, but other than that it is a really good product.
    Paula's choice
    Its awesome... Felt more like a hydrant than an exfoliant, no redness or irritation.. Love it already ordered the supersize. Thanks Cult Beauty
    Great for daily use - not a miracle cure
    I’m 29, pretty sure I have adult acne and as hard as I try I just can’t help touching my face and finding something, anything to pick or peel. Maybe if I got that under control my breakout problems would disappear but until then I’ll be using this skin exfoliant. I’ve tried peroxide creams that look like dried toothpaste on your face, face masks, blemish pads and scar oils/creams - nothing has seemed to make a considerable difference without being inconvenient or just not worth it. With this liquid exfoliant breakouts seem less red, less angry and less frequent but I can’t say it’s helped with the scar colouring on my face. I use it twice a day as instructed but the 30ml is running out after 1 month of use. After reading reviews I expected this to last a little longer. I feel the lotion version might work better for further coverage and I’m happy to spend a little extra to keep my breakouts under control a little better. Definitely worth a try
    Best BHA exfoliant I have ever used
    After most reviews were praising so highly about this product I decided to give it a try. I have a combination of oily sensitive skin and quite visible pores. This product was gentle enough to not irritate my skin and give me that great glow while minimizing my pores. I use it every night after double cleansing and after it, I use rosehip oil and the combination does wonders for my skin!
    It works!
    After 3 days the sebaceous filament on my nose are practically gone and the breakout on my cheek due to mask wearing is gone. I truly recommend purchasing this product!
    Amazing Product!
    I have lots of issues with my skin and suffer from dermatitis. I have lots of problems with redness which I really struggle to find products to help with this. After trying A LOT of different skin care regimes over the years I thought when I purchased this liquid exfoliant it would be like the rest. I was SO wrong, it’s amazing! My redness is practically gone, my skin feels soft, glowing and I went out for the first time make-up free in a very long time since it has improved my skin so much. I am so impressed and I am so glad I’ve added this to my skin care! Buy buy buy!
    This stuff actually works
    I use this as a toner after I’ve cleansed/double cleansed my skin. I have large pores and the occasional spot. The main benefits I’ve noticed is if I had a spot the night before and I use this, it reduces the spot dramatically overnight. My skin also looks brighter. Ive had basically no spots since using the gentle exfoliator every night, it clears clogs pores and there’s no dirt/make up left on my face. Only one negative, it’s quite uncomfortable on the skin, skin almost doesn’t feel very breathable but it soaks in within 5-10 minutes. Doesn’t bother me at all.
    Phenomenal
    Not to be dramatic, but this product completely transformed my skin. I've suffered for years with cystic acne and this has been the only thing that has made an impact. The change was noticeable in weeks. I get fewer spots now and when I do, they aren't as big and they don't stick around as long. I also have sebaceous filaments in my T-zone area which appear visibly reduced. A little goes a long way. Don't apply using a cotton pad!! It's a liquid but it has an oily texture so I simply shake 4 or 5 drops into the palm of my hand and smooth it over my skin with my fingers, focusing mainly on my problem areas but pretty much over my whole face (avoiding eyes). I've been using the same travel size bottle for months and I've barely made a dent in it.
    Changed my skin
    I have suffered with breakouts, blackheads and just oily skin all my life. Even stuff I had prescribed from the DR didn’t clear my skin, as well as this stuff, did. Even after I double cleanse my face my cotton pad has dirt on it. This stuff is just like a magnet to dirt and cleans your pores out !! It doesn’t dry my skin. Always have to have a backup!
    Great for spot prone skin
    I bought the smaller version of this and really enjoyed using it. I felt it really improved my spotty, oily t-zone and definitely cleared outbreaks quicker. I keep meaning to buy the full sized version but keep missing out when it comes back in stock. I would definitely recommend if you have combination skin!
    pretty great, maybe not for dry skin
    I have super super oily skin. I got really bad breakouts at the beginning of lock-down, I'd get a massive patch and they'd go and another patch would pop up somewhere else. It's cleared up almost all my spots quite quickly and I can see the marks left disappearing with each use. it IS a genuinely good product. It did dry out my skin quite a lot. So I can't imagine it would be great for those with dry skin.
    MUST BUY for anyone with acne prone skin
    This product is my holy grail exfoliator. I have acne-prone oily skin and can break very easy. Since using this i have not had a single blemish and I promise that is no exaggeration. The only time I did get a spot was when I ran out of the product whilst waiting for a restock. I CANNOT believe how great this product is, if you are in 2 minds about purchasing I urge you to give the small size a try. You won't regret it.
    Staple product
    I'd heard so much about this product and wondered what all the hype was so I had to give it a go. My skin is dry, sensitive and eczema-prone, so I was nervous this would be really harsh but it's lived up to the hype and been incredible. Since I generally use heavier creams and oils to get as much hydration and nourishment, I find the pores around my nose can get a bit congested, as well as between my brows but this has cleared it right up and made my skin better than ever. Although you can use this twice daily, I find I just use this every other night and it's enough for me :)
    Will re-buy for ever again!!!
    Holy grail!!
    HG for me
    This is amazing for large pores and oily skin. You won’t get rid of the pores but it will definitely diminish their appearance. Apply with a cotton pad a few days a week, it will help to minimize the irritation and drying.
    Soft, acne free skin
    I have a combination, very acne-prone skin. After a month of use, my skin looks more even, I don't have a single pimple for 2 weeks and my skin is suuuper soft. Beware it can be a little bit drying, though.
    Life changing
    I first purchased this product due to the high amount of positive reviews and I can honestly say that this product does not disappoint. It’s really effective because it’s not harsh on the skin like a typical exfoliant and it leaves you with such smooth skin and it has reduced those pesky red bumps that I have on my cheeks dramatically in the space of 10 days. Very effective for people with oily and combination skin as it also reduces sebum production. It has overall given me a clearer complexion much more effectively than any product I have used before, so I highly recommend it.
    Disappointed
    I had a very high expectation for this product but it doesn't work for me at all. I have been used for 3 weeks and I don't see any difference. I have large pores and black spots but not too bad so I thought it would help, unfortunately, It's not the case.
    It’s my new must have
    I bought this around a month or so ago, and to be very honest I was hesitant to buy it as there are soooo many good reviews and it sounded a bit too good to be true. But let me tell you something, this bottle changed my skin for the better. I used to have lots of hormonal acne that left dark scars on my face, and I tried so many product to get rid of the scars and nothing really works. But this product lighten my scars within a week or so, don’t get me wrong, it’s not completely gone yet but I see a rapid change in my skin texture and discolouration which means that this works! So it’s well worth the money, my face is now baby smooth. Definitely will repurchase again and again and again. Note: I don’t use this twice a day like it says on the bottle, I only use it on my PM routine
    Great Stuff
    Gentle and so effective - I really love this exfoliant and works great for a more oily skin type like mine. Much better than other harsh exfoliants. Great alternative if you find that lactic acid, or other exfoliating toners do nothing for you.
    Love love love!
    I have used face scrub/exfoliants all my life and started to realise that it may be a bit too harsh for my skin especially as I'm ageing and that's when I came across this. I absolutely love it it has transformed my daytime skin care routine and it's something you can use daily. My skin looks glowy and tight. I will definitely keep repurchasing.
    relly good
    It really calms down the redness and helps with active breakouts. Also, a lot of people complain about its oiliness but I have to say it's not heavy at all. Only at the beginning, it has a slip but it sinks in quickly and it's so hydrating and moisturizing you don't need anything else besides your moisturizer. Overall really satisfied.
    Trust me, just be patient
    For the first 10 days of using this serum I got a couple of breakouts, but I was patient with using it and it paid off. The pores are less visible, there are no more breakouts, my whole face looks clearer and I got the glow. Also the important thing after this serum is hydration, so make sure you also find something that works for your skin after this BHA if you want to get better results.
    Oily ... didnt do what it promised on the bottle
    This worked for the first 2 weeks, thought I'd landed a winner.....unfortunately my spots came back worse after 2 weeks use. Didn't clear my blackheads either! Quite sad this didn't work as it was highly recommended by others. Back to the drawing board for me...
    Great, not drying
    I decided to try out this product because of its popularity and I have to say it does live up to its expectations. Unlike a lot of drying BHAs, this one doesn’t dry out my very very dry skin. On the contrary, it’s actually hydrating like a normal toner. I’ve been using it for a month, 3 days a week and I’ve noticed that the day after I use it, my pimples either disappear, become significantly smaller or they fill up with pus and in my case, that process can take up to a week, but with this product, it happens overnight. :)
    Hate this product
    It feels greasy and horrible when applying it. Luckily I only bought the travel size as I struggle to use up all of it.
    Amazing
    Amazing product, I didn’t believe the hype but after around 3 weeks use on and off my skin has completely changed. It is glowing! Spots aided and the little bumps under the skin almost disappeared. I have oily, acne prone skin and it’s even reduced the oil build up I get daily. If you are hesitating to get this, take the leap! It’ll be worth it
    Best product
    This is such a great product for textured skin, doesn’t dry skin out and leaves a healthy glow!
    I’m not sure
    I can’t actually tell if it’s doing anything, I have been using it for a few weeks, morning and night. Unfortunately, it leaves a really annoying film on my skin so I’m not sure I’ve continued to use it because the benefits aren’t outweighing the negatives yet.
    Average
    I seem to be the minority here, but I personally found this product underwhelming. First off, the consistency is just awful! A bit oily, a bit sticky and will just not sink into the skin (combination skin). In addition, I am not experiencing overwhelming results either. It does help slightly to clear congestion but it‘s not an overnight miracle. In terms of efficacy I would compare it to the Inkey List Salycilic acid cleanser that I much prefer. In terms of overnight miracles I have not yet found a better product than the super spot remover by Origins. So in my humble opinion, this is not worth the money and the hype.
    Happy with use in a week
    My skin feels so clean and smooth pores are reduce.
    Works well but can be drying
    I get clogged pores on my forehead and some texture on my cheeks near my nose. This product gets rid of all of that! It goes in a few days (for me anyway). What I would say is be careful, I only use it once in the evenings (with a moisturiser on top) and after a few days I start to feel really dry, so go easy with it and learn your limits.
    Really good!
    I usually get blackheads on my nose and since using this product I have noticed a reduced amount of blackheads and a clearer complexion, and the Salicylic acid really helps shed the dead skin. I would advise if you have sensitive skin to not use this product a couple of days before applying heavy makeup or have a big night coming up. The product made me shed quite a bit and didn't look flattering when applying foundation. Overall a win!
    Not for all skin types
    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)
    Not the miracle I was expecting
    I've been using this for about a month, it works great at drying out active breakouts - literally smoothed out some pimples overnight! However it is a bit drying for me, so I'm only using it 3x a week and not every day as suggested on the packaging. My skin is on the drier side though :) I was hoping to see improvement in texture and blackheads reduction but nothing has happened so far. Good product but didn't work miracles for me.
    Amazing
    Read reviews about this product and it didn't disappoint. Absolutely amazing. Skin is clear and soft. Can't do without this in my routine now. Love love love.
    Great for texture!
    I started using this regularly about two weeks ago, and almost immediately say a positive change in the texture of my skin. It's a really simple tonic, but my face has been so undeniably SMOOTH ever since using, and I had been dealing with all kinds of unevenness and millia. Definitely recommend!
    It’s excellent
    It’s a light liquid exfoliant that doesn’t burn me despite having sensitive skin. It helps to lighten hyperpigmentation and is the bomb ❣️ The small version lasts quite a while.
    Definitely worth a try
    I have combo skin type (mostly oily though) and suffer from hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores. I've been using this product for a month and it has greatly improved the appearance of my skin and makes my pores look shrunken! (they're still there but it seems to have shrunk by ~40% for me!). It hasn't done as much for the hyperpigmentation issue- I admit my skin looks brighter but when I solely focus on the dark areas on my face (forehead and mouth), it looks just slightly better (but maybe it will take more time for it to show). I couldn't resist the hype over this product on social media but I'm glad to have bought it! It took me around 3 days of use to see changes. Also, I feel that the pricing is a bit much and should be around £20-25 (not much of a jump from £28 but it just doesn't sit right with me :o) but I will still continue using and supporting this product (at least until a cheaper and better alternative is out lol) P.S Make sure NOT to mix retinol with this product! and DO make sure to use suncream after this using this product if you use it in the morning/ daytime :)
    No words!
    This is everything, was sceptical even after reading all the five star reviews but this has improved my skin more than I could have ever imagined, reduced redness and eliminating texture over time could not be happier with it, will continue to repurchase. 5 *
    Holy Grail
    I bought this after suffering with acne for years and wasn't sure if it would live up to the hype. It absolutely does and I wouldn't be without it now. I've been using it 3 times a week for 3 months now and the number of spots I've had has reduced dramatically, and the ones I have had have been nowhere near as angry as before, and they have disappeared quickly too. Would recommend to anyone who has acne as it's been one of the only products I've tried that actually helped.
    WOW
    Having sensitive dry skin I thought this wouldn't work and the TikTok hype would be useless, but it was amazing for my skin! I use it every morning, though it says morning and night on the bottle, because of my skin type and how easily it is irritated. After around 3 weeks I saw big differences in the texture around my nose, the size of my pores and the overall look of my skin! I find applying with my hands the best and easiest way, it sinks in a few seconds, no residue and everything applies nicely on top! If you have dry sensitive skin and exfoliating is such a pain because of stinging, reactions, redness etc.. I think this will surprise you and I hope it works for you!
    Glass skin
    Cult favourite only to be used twice week as it is and a liquid exfoliant really good at giving you that glass skin a fact I cannot live without this product a little goes a long way I personally use my hands to apply it.
    Amazing
    Definitely recommend, repurchased.
    Best ever
    This is the best skincare product I’ve ever bought, expensive but it’d a staple for good skin
    Ok
    I have oily/acne skin, it's really sticky once put on and has an acetone smell to it. Has made blackheads smaller and smoothes the texture of my skin but nothing else. A bit too hyped
    Really Worth It
    Such a life changer
    Photosensitive
    Unfortunately, I didn't see much improvement in breakouts or texture and caused my skin to become super photosensitive. Glad I bought the travel size to try it out first.
    Absolutely worth it!
    Bought the smallest version of this as I had heard good things but didn’t want to invest... well it looks like I’ll be dropping some money soon because this is genuinely one of those products that actually work! Doesn’t sting the face like other products like this do, feels nice on the skin and a little goes a long way. I’m still using the small bottle and have been every night since I bought it a month or so ago, and I’ve seen a difference in the appearance of my pores - something which no other product has ever achieved for me! LOVE!
    Worth it
    My skin texture changed after three uses. My advice is not to use it every day, just once or twice a week. Great product worth every penny
    Overhyped
    I have oily skin, and lots of blackheads giving me a headache. It goes is sticky, it leaves my face greasy and it takes at least 30 minutes to absorb before I can apply something else. It also burns on initial application, even though my skin is not sensitive and takes well to exfoliation with most other products. It has smoothened the texture of my skin, but it has done nothing to (visibly) improve my pores, reduce blackheads and minimise their inflammation. It is a decent product, but I feel it doesn't perform quite well at what is advertised to do and definitely not worth the hype surrounding it!
    My skin loves it!
    After used it for the first time, the 'redness' from breakouts across my forehead 'almost' completely gone, overnight. My skin feels much smoother and fluffier. Still have to see the result after 4 weeks though, but after all I'm satisfied with this purchase.
    Meh
    I only tried the product twice and both times it made me come up with red spots all over my face. I think it was just too strong for my skin.
    Good but not worth the hype
    This is overall a good cleansing product that is surprisingly gentle. However, it has not revolutionised my skin. It has not got rid of my blackheads which was my main reason for purchasing but it has significantly smoothed my skin and reduced my breakouts when I first started using it which is nice. A big drawback to be aware of is that it breaks down dead skin cells but leaves the flakes on your skin (rather than wiping them away) which kind of negates the purpose of the product, so you may find yourself exfoliating more than usual just to get rid of the flakes! This is especially annoying because if I go more than one day without using the exfoliant, the build-up of flaky skin becomes unbearable. I'm not too sure why this happens.
    It’s great
    It’s really great it is worth the money but it’s harsh so be careful with It. I wear it every few nights rather than every night
    Game changer
    OK, this stuff is a game Changer! I have been surrfering with spots an blemishes for the last 2 years or so (I'm 32) so apparently have aging teenage skin!
    Amazing
    So worth the hype. Amazing product for blackheads. Even after the first use, I saw immediate results. Really impressed. I bought the mini size to try it out, but I will be bying the bigger one in the future!
    Amazing
    This product is amazing for blackheads and pimples. Perfect for oily skin. Water-based so easy to use and doesn’t hurt or itch at all. It feels like you are putting normal water on your face but the miracles that this product does is amazing. I bought the 30ml to try it out but now I'm buying the bigger one. I recommend this
    5 STARS
    It’s a live saver
    Wow
    I have struggled with my skin for 5 years (I am 29 now) this has massively helped clear my pores which would be full of sebaceous filaments. Using this alongside my skincare has started to clear up my skin. Looking forward to continuing to see results.
    Life changing
    Game-changer. In just a couple of days my acne scars cleared up and any new spots or breakouts that pop up seem to quickly diminish with frequent use of this. Can't live without! For dry skin sufferers - don't use more than once daily as I find it tends to strip your skin a bit and may exacerbate any flakiness.
    Tens across the board
    Tens across the board
    10/10
    I bought this about two weeks ago after doing some research online for a product to help with acne. I have always had normal/sensitive skin but since coming off the contraceptive pill last year I’ve suffered from some hormonal acne. This product is a game changer. I’ve been using it for just over a week and any whiteheads/blackheads that I had have completely gone. My skin is back to normal and feels so smooth and glowy. I felt miserable a few weeks ago. If you’re considering this product, BUY IT. Worth every penny.
    Ok
    This product was too harsh for my skin, my pores did not shrink. Probably the lotion/gel form would be better for sensitive skin.
    Second time purchasing
    Honestly the most amazing product! Helps Reduce the appearance of pores and blackheads, it also leaves you with an almost dewy glow to your face! I have seen a significant change in my skin especially with the blackheads on my nose completely going! Couldn’t recommend this more 10/10
    WORKS AMAZING
    so ive only used the product twice and when i tell you my skin has changed it has ! it has clearsd up so much more and now i have to buy the bigger bottle . i cannot wait to have clear skin for hot girls summer! thank youuuu
    Repeat purchase
    Really brightens my skin and reduces the redness, I’m on to my second bottle.
    Amazing on Blackheads
    A colleague recommended this after a discussion about blackheads and I’m not disappointed. The blackheads on my chin have become much less visible after using this only for a few weeks. I’ll definitely be buying again as my skin looks amazing.
    Good but be cautious
    It took my skin a while to get used to this product, it says to use it twice a day but I was noticing it was super drying my skin out and stinging a little so I started to just use it in the evening and I’ve now started to really love it. It took about 2/3 weeks to see noticeable differences but along with cleansing and properly moisturising (twice a day) my skin is glowing and isn’t dry anymore from use! I use this alongside the cleanser and my skin is sooooo much softer and has a healthy glow. I would definitely recommend but my advice would be to not go straight in with twice a day use. Give your skin time to get used to it or it can be a bit harsh. My skins a bit sensitive and is combination oily and dry but I will be buying again! The small £5 one has lasted me 3 weeks so far and feels like it will last another few weeks so it goes a long way.
    So far amazing
    Today was my first day of using this and when I woke up it’s the first time I’ve woke up and it hadn’t irritated my skin at all. I have really sensitive skin so I react to literally every product but this one completely fine. I can’t believe it.
    Amazing!
    After years of trying so many different skin care products, I decided to by this after a friend recommended it after using it for a couple of days I noticed a huge difference in my skin no blemishes and the texture was the best I’ve ever seen it. I now use it day and night and my skin has never looked better. I couldn’t recommend this enough.
    Love it!
    Totally a game changer I am in my late thirties and suddenly noticed having pores and dull skin. This has helped my skin in the sense my pores have definitely shrinked and and skin looks clean. I started off using alternate days then daily. Suits my skin. A bit expensive but worth every penny spent! Love it!!!!
    This is my first time using it
    Love the texture, kinda expensive but I think it’s worth it
    Amazing when used right.
    After a few weeks of intermittent use all over my face I couldn't see any difference and didn't use it for a while. I read a few different guides and wanted to give it a shot again but this time by only using on my nose. The first night it looked like my blackheads were trying to escape (you could see it!) and some gentle squeezing got rid of a ton. A few days later it's like I never had any blackheads. Absolutely life-changing.
    Wait... what?
    This stuff is changing my goddam life!!!! I’m only 4 days in (applying twice a day) but the change in my skins appearance is UNBELIEVABLE. I don’t have particularly sensitive skin but I do have a problem with pores and blackheads on my chin and around my nose. I have also been struggling with small spots, lumps and bumps under the skin on my forehead and just general wear and tear from being wrong side of 40 and daily winter walks. But my skin feels so soft, so plump, pores are reduced and it just looks so good. Really happy with this product, I don’t generally use acids and have never used a liquid exfoliant before but I’m a convert and will be buying a large bottle and keeping myself topped up.
    I don’t get it
    I had high hopes for this based on all the reviews but super underwhelmed. It’s sticky, doesn’t absorb well and did nothing for blackheads. Have it a few weeks and halfway through the bottle but won’t be buying again.
    Completely transforming!
    I have never written a product review before however for this particular product I just had to share how much it has transformed my skin. I have suffered from breakouts for 10 years and tried every single product you could name. I was recommended this product 3 weeks ago and since then I have not had 1 single breakout which is incredible as I usually wake up to a new one every day. My scars have begun to fade very quickly and my skin seems smooth and supple. Could not recommend it enough, now it is my holy grail!
    Love it
    Amazing product. Sad I haven’t tried it earlier
    Just perfect!
    This product is such a great deal! High quality.
    Love Love Love!
    I was sceptical over buying as every product I’ve tried, people have claimed it to be ‘life-changing'. Well, I am truly blown away by this. At first, I used it every night and after the first few days, I noticed my skin going very dry. After switching to use it every other night my skin has never been better!!! I usually suffer from combination skin with a few breakouts around the chin/cheeks and texture on my forehead. This stuff has completely cleared my chin and cheeks! If you’re on the fence over purchasing, I promise you will not regret it!
    Absolutely amazing!
    This stuff is next level. If you have oily/combination skin and want something to even out your skin tone and also get rid of blackheads, then you need to invest in this. I bought the smaller size initially to try it out to see if it works and within a few days I placed the order for the full size. Trust me, it’s amazing. My skin is so much smoother and younger looking after I’ve been using this for over a month now.
    Love it
    I have combination skin and I’ve been using this for about a week on alternative nights and the difference is amazing! My skin is so smooth with little redness. My foundation goes on so smoothly and looks flawless. If you are unsure if you should buy this, please do. You won’t regret it!
    It’s ok....
    Wanted to move this product after reading endless amazing reviews. BUT it just doesn’t do anything for me. Using it 2/3 times a week, each time I wake the next morning with tiny pimples, which then go within a day. I’ve used other salicylic products in the past which don’t do this. Also, feel the texture is somewhat oily and just lies on my skin. Glad I purchased the smaller size.
    Game changer
    I’ve used this product years ago but it didn’t do anything. I tried it again recently and now I cannot go without it. Just be patient! It makes your skin so smooth and flawless
    Fantastic results in less than a week!
    Within less than a week this toner drastically improved the look and texture of my skin! This radically smoothed my skin, reduced the size of my pores, got rid of the bumps on my forehead and helped improve the darkness of my acne scars. This is such an effective exfoliator, I literally saw the dead skin shedding off my face, and the formula is gentle enough even for my sensitive skin. This is a must try for everyone, would thoroughly recommend!
    Seems to work well
    I had trouble with fixing my skin and finding a good enough skin-care routine, but so far - so good! I don't exactly know if this is THE product that helped me, but together with products from The Inkey List and some from The Ordinary - it seems to work wonders. I have been using this for only a short amount of time, but it already has shown results. This specific exfoliant leaves kind of like a satin/silky (I don't know how to better explain this) feel to the skin and it's very pleasant. I use it in the evening and in the morning. I like it.
    I really saw a huge difference after 1 use!
    So...I was a bit scared to buy this product because of the hype around it at first, but my curiosity won. After the first application, I've seen some huge differences about my skin!! Amazing for blemish prone skin and dark spots, it is healing my skin and I think I'm never going back
    Must Have Buy!
    I have been bothered with hormonal acne since I can remember. Nothing has helped...until now! Apply before bed and in the morning and you would hardly know a spot existed! Thank you Paula’s Choice.
    It’s ok
    Bought this because of the reviews. Think its an ok product but not done anything amazing. The bottle has leaked all over so for this reason I don’t feel it is something I will be repurchasing.
    Reacted
    After reading the positive reviews as well as reading about it on another site I thought I’d give this a try. Hoping not to react to this (I have sensitive skin) I woke up the next morning with dry patches over my face. As soon as I applied it, I felt a tingling sensation and so I washed it off immediately. Unfortunately, the product was just too harsh for my skin.
    Love This
    Great product. Helps reduce my blackheads on my nose. Be patient and use it twice daily. Definitely helps reduce pores
    Immediate Results
    100% the most important step in my routine. I suffer with adult acne and I can’t stress enough how much this has benefitted my skin since I started using it. Highly recommend! Absolute game changer and definitely lives up to the hype.
    Amazing
    I have very temperamental skin with dryness, oiliness and some flaky and red patches from acne and hormonal spots that take forever to go. Since using this I have had one spot that went within a few days. Teamed with the azelaic acid my skin is transformed. Definitely in my hall of fame!
    Made a difference within a week..
    I’ve used a few different over night exfoliators but this is by far the best! I’ve been using it 2/3 times a week and I’ve noticed my skin shines the day after using it. Was worried at first as the pores on my nose looked way more prominent after use but after a week they look much better and it’s definitely now shrunk my pores.
    The best!
    This product is amazing! I suffer from hormonal acne and this has done wonders for my skin. Definitely buying the bigger bottle next time!
    Loving it
    I saw this product online and thought I’d give it ago and ordered the smaller one to test it out. My face has cleared up massively. Will purchase the bigger one next time.
    Incredible Product!
    This is hands down the best beauty product I have ever used. I've been using the 30ml size for 2 weeks and my skin is GLOWING, something which I never thought was possible for me! I've always suffered from oily and congested but super sensitive skin, and after having previously tried REN's Ready Steady Glow but been left in pain, I thought acids weren't for me, however this has been gentle enough to use twice per day from the beginning. My congested T zone pores have cleared and look tighter. I thought my cheeks were okay before - Nope! Now they are radiant. Winter is usually the worst time of year for my skin but this is the best I can remember it looking. I will buy this forever, 10/10 recommend.
    Must have for everyone!
    I ordered this product because I heard really great reviews and recommendations, and I have to admit when I am using this for three weeks now. It makes my new pimple dissapear over night, it’s a miracle. Also it should help with black heads and sebaceous filaments, I can see some progress with this problem too. I have sensitive, normal to dry skin, and it doesn’t dry me out, it’s very gentle and effective. Also I didn’t have any reactions. I’m gonna definitely repurchase this bottle of magic.
    100% EFFECTIVE
    If you suffer from enlarged pores or/and blackheads you seriously need this! The 30ml size is great for testing it out!
    Amazing!
    It did a great job for my acne-prone skin. It handles the pimples and large pores well so in the morning you see a difference. I love it and purchased it twice now and will definitely continue to do so. Great job with this one, Paula's choice.
    Amazing!
    it’s amazing!! It makes your pores look smaller and keeps your skin clear. My skins glowing, I can’t recommend enough
    BE CAREFUL
    I decided to try this after running out of my Pixi Glow Tonic. My skin is not particularly sensitive but after using this every three days or so for about 3 weeks, my skin barrier was absolutely destroyed. I don't know if it's the strength of the product or just my skin, I also don't suffer from acne that much, my main concern was texture. But as of now, I'm nursing my skin back to health with a simple routine and my texture is worse than ever. Be careful!!!
    Holy grail
    This stuff is absolutely magical. When I first bought it I was really sceptical, it’s really hyped up but as I found out for good reason. It’s transformed my skin, I use it every couple days around 3 days a week & my skin is so smooth, bright & my blemishes are really reduced & if they apparently don’t last very long. I would advise getting the small bottle first to see if you like it before getting the larger one, the small one lasted me about 1-2 months so it’s really worth the price in my opinion. Don't overuse it or your skin could be really sensitive.
    Give it a month!
    It takes a month of using this product to see its benefits! It tightens and brightens your face, however it takes up to 6 weeks of continual use before it reduces the size of pores! This product is not too strong so fine for slightly sensitive skin. This is a high-quality product but is quite expensive and the bottle is very small and only lasts about a month!
    My new favourite
    I'm in love with this exfoliant! I was so worried at first as I know skin can purge with this product. I started using it twice a week and have now built up the tolerance to use it every other day, I won't be going back to physical exfoliants again! This has dramatically changed my skin texture for the better and I've only been using it for a month. Would 100% recommend.
    A definite recommend for oily or spot prone skin
    I use this alongside the inkey list salicylic cleanser and a niacinamide serum. It had definitely been a game changer for me! I’ve noticed my skin is smoother and it doesn’t get as oily. It clears up spots which are coming up due to wearing PPE. I’ve recommended it to so many of my friends now!
    Skin staple
    Been using for a while now, works to keep my skin clear.
    Love it!
    So far im loving it, this product makes the skin smoothe and brighter. Not a fan of how it feels when applied but it's an easy overlook for the results.
    Great product
    I use this every morning along with an AHA toner at night and it definitely keeps my spots at bay. I thought this would be quite drying but it is hydrating and doesn’t dry down too much which I found a bit strange at first but really enjoy it now! Worth the expense for clear skin
    Lovely glow!
    Would recommend this product as it gives my face a lovely glow. I have sensitive skin, so couldn’t use it (or any other acid) every day. Once or twice a week is perfect.
    Highly recommend- build up use!
    This product is a saviour, feel it has really helped with my breakouts and acne scars. Would recommend if you have sensitive skin, start off once a week and build up to every 2/ 3 days. Know everyone says you can use it daily but can be too strong. :)
    Brilliant
    I don't personally have acne but I had a very bumpy texture to my skin and small white spots that weren't spotted (if that makes sense) around my chin, since using this (only 1 week) its smoothed out my skin dramatically reduced the appearance of the weird white spots and even out my overall skin and cleared up the few spots I had, I was so not expecting this to work as well as it has, I have ordered the bigger bottle ready for when my 30ml runs out :)
    YES YES YES
    I have been using this for around a month and I can already see results! My skin is more glowy and so smooth, It is amazing. I cannot see myself going without this! I use it every morning and night. I purchased the 30ml and still have so much left. I will defiantly be purchasing the 118ml!
    Game changer!
    Really good for congested, combination skin!
    I love it
    Honestly a holy grail, my skin is so much better for using this. I previously had acne-prone skin that was tamed by Isotretinoin, leaving it fairly dry. This along with my moisturizer have completely transformed my skin!
    It’s okay..
    This product is okay. I expected great thinks as all the skin influencers & derms online recommend it. I suffer with extremely congested skin around the mouth & hormonal acne everywhere else & it made everything worse. I use acids a lot and know the difference between purging & breaking out. This made me break out. I think this is an acid for people that already have nice skin..
    A product I’ll repurchase forever
    I have tried a lot of Acid Toners, but this one has really been the best. Since it’s a BHA I I feel my skin is less congested and clear. Ever since using it I feel my breakouts have drastically reduced and my skin has become much more even. It’s my second bottle already and I’m definitely gonna be repurchasing again.
    Saved my skin
    My skin needed serious help when i ordered this. I had texture across my forehead and this not only completely cleared that but also made my skin look very supple and healthy overall. I used a separate salicylic masque from The Ordinary on my nose for blackheads alongside this liquid exfoliant and I saw a significant improvement. So pleased.
    A staple
    I love this product. I have purchased twice already. I don’t have problematic skin but I think this does wonders for my skins texture and keeps all the bumps away and gives a wonderful glow. I’m at a point where I don’t want to be without this product.
    Life changing
    I suffered from severe hormonal acne for months and after trying anything and everything this is the product that changed my life. I no longer have cystic acne and if I do get spots they are reduced in days, I have been left with a face full of scars from my acne but this has lightened the scars amazingly and I can tell in the long run it will completely transform them. If I could give any acne sufferer advice it would be to buy this, it’s a good price for the small bottle if you even just want to test it.
    Am I missing something?
    I bought this to help with my acne-prone skin. I am glad I bought the small bottle to try as I haven't seen any changes.
    Adore it!
    Great product.
    LOVE
    This is a game-changer for congested, acne-prone skin - particularly combination skin. Your skin is clearer after the first use but, unlike other BHAs I've used, it's not drying at all due to the more oily texture. A miracle in a bottle - I will never use any other BHA again!
    just buy it!
    If you're pondering the purchase of this wonder product just buy the tester size and you'll be hooked! (at least that's what I did). This stuff does it all, I've struggled with severe acne and scarring for the last 8 years and in less than a week any texture in my skin was erased, my pores invisible and my stubborn one scars that have been hanging around for over a year are fading ridiculously fast! Hyram pulled through on this one and I can't recommend this highly enough to my fellow oily, acne queens xoxo
    Let down
    So I started whole resurface few weeks ago using other brand products. Skin was getting better and just needed something to deal with black heads on tzone. I read raving reviews so decided to try it. It feels oily and shiny on my skin but I’m okay with that. I’ve been using it twice a day for near two weeks now and blackheads are just worse! It’s very disappointing as everyone raves about it. Wish Id bought smaller size now. Waste of money. Search continues :(
    Love it! But get the small bottle first
    Initially, I bought the small bottle to test it because of the partially mixed reviews. I used it on my face and on my chest because I get quite a lot of these little bumps there. I had to stop using it every day on my face because it burned too much and it made my skin really dry even though I have oily skin. But my chest was fine, so I kept on using it every night on my chest and every other night on my face. After two weeks my chest started peeling off. As if I had a sun-burn. So I freaked out but the little bumps were COMPLETELY GONE when my skin stopped peeling. Once my face got used to the product, I started using it every night and OH MY GOODNESS!!!! My skin has never been this flawless! It took a little while for my skin to get used to it but once it did...!!!! Love it, it's so much worth the money! Especially now when I can't go for my proper facial because everything is closed because of COVID-19.
    Amazing
    An amazing exfoliator!! Helps prevent spots, would highly recommend it as it doesn’t leave my skin dry.
    Amazing product
    I have had problems with uneven skin, dryness, oiliness and build up of black heads around my nose for years. I bought this product back in March with no real expectations as nothing has worked in the past, but I would never live without this product! My skin feels and looks amazing, it’s all glowing and dewy and it has cleared out all of the black heads. I never spend this much on beauty products but I would spend it on this! On to my second bottle (the first 118ml lasted me ages) and can’t wait for it to arrive
    Skin Saver!
    I bought the smaller bottle to try as, up until now, I haven’t found anything that’s really made a difference to my skin, which is usually dotted with acne spots and medium coverage of blackheads. THIS was a total game changer for me, noticing the results after only a few days of using it and people commenting on how fresh faced I looked. This combined with some amazing hair, skin, and nail supplements has meant I haven’t had a single spot in about 5 weeks, not even my regular ‘due-on’ spots could beat it. I will be ordering the larger bottle soon! Absolutely love it!
    Perfect
    Helps with cystic acne overnight!
    THE SIZE?!???
    My package literally arrived today and I’ve been so excited to try it but as soon as I opened it and saw how small it was I couldn’t believe it, with the price being a whole £10 I would have thought it would’ve been a little bigger but hopefully the products works and maybe I’ll get the full size. Looking forward to seeing good results if this flops me with all the research I’ve done I might just scream.
    Insane ❤️
    My perfect skin had slowly become problematic and I developed areas of acne as well as blackheads and milia (plus areas of sun damage). I’ve always had a good skin regime but I clearly needed a change! I did a lot of research and invested in this product along with Paula's Choice Intensive Repair Cream (I apply both at night only!) and FOREO. I can honestly say it’s only been a week and my skin is more radiant, my redness has disappeared, blackheads have disappeared from my nose and I’ve not had any new Milia come up, even eradicating the teeny little white lumps I got on my chin. I’m yet to notice if it diminishes some scaring I have on my face but I’m hopeful. I can’t rate this product enough!!
    Skin perfector
    Absolutely amazing! I've used it for around a month consistently now (2-3 times a week) before moisturising, my skin has never looked better. It doesn't irritate the skin or cause redness. My skin looks more even, and my scars have disappeared too. My pores around my nose are virtually invisible now and my skin feels smoother and overall looks flawless! Couldn't be happier, I will definitely be purchasing a new bottle when it runs out. If you are considering it, definitely try it out and you will not regret it :))
    Excellent
    It shrinks your pores, your pimples are made nonexistent, and it brightens your complexion.
    So good!
    I bought the small (30ml) bottle of this to test it out as I've been struggling with enlarged pores and skin texture, and this works! I've only been using it for about two weeks, and I gradually introduced it into my skincare routine so it doesn't irritate my skin (my skin is usually sensitive to strong treatments), and this has been working so well. I definitely see a difference in my skin texture, and my skin tone seems to be evening out too which is nice! Would recommend!
    No no no
    No no no! It irritated my skin so badly. I used it just for 4 days, now I have red burning, and itching skin on my cheeks :(
    Very Good
    There is a reason why it is a holy grail for acne sufferers; it does the job in getting the pimples smaller and as a BHA it exfoliates the skin leaving it radiant and supple the next morning plus it has green tea which is an excellent antioxidant. Highly recommend!
    Size
    Get the bigger bottle. I ordered the small bottle expecting it to be a bit bigger so didn’t really have much in there to effectively use on my skin to see a difference
    Saw improvement in scars with in 2 weeks
    I have post acne scars from a very long time. This product has helped in visibilly reducing the scars when used along withthe ordinary niacinamide serum
    Amazing but beware the purge!
    I performed some research on this product before buying so I was fully aware that purging could be on the cards. But omg the level of acne I have had on my chin is insane!! For over roughly 2 months my cystic acne went ballistic, but now it’s completely fine. I only experienced purging in my problem area (chin) but the rest of my skin was absolutely glowingggg, so I can’t wait for the purge to completely end and for my chin to be at the same place as the rest of my face. Overall I would say it’s worth the purge, just push through and you’ll see results and fewer breakouts in the long run. (I use twice a day for reference)
    Aggressive
    I don’t usually review products unless they’re very good or really bad. I have normal skin, slighly sensitive but can handle retinol and glycolic acid. This product burned my skin and left it red and itchy for days. After application the skin is oily. Would never purchase again or recommend, especially at this price.
    Amazing product
    Love this product. Really worked on my oil acne prone skin. Definitely getting another bottle soon
    Glad I caved in!
    Its's great! It has definitely helped with scarring and texture.
    This has changed my skin.
    This has changed my skin completely. I used to get white bumps on my skin and they now have vanished and I'm now starting to get compliments from family and friends on my skin.
    Pore cleansing saviour!
    I recently bought this item after a lot of deliberation considering the price point compared to the amount of product you get, but I am thoroughly pleased that I did and will be purchasing again! It does an amazing job of clearing out pores and even reduces the little sebaceous filaments on my nose and chin which can get pretty obvious if not cleared out. I don't use it every day because my skin can get sensitised but I use it about every other day and substitute with my glow OH toner from Ole in between and the combination has been keeping my skin so soft and clear.
    Not what I expected
    I have combination skin with regular breakouts and large pores, and a lot of scarring/ hyperpigmentation. After all the ads and the YouTube skincare gurus recommending this, I had high expectations! But unfortunately, I wasn’t that impressed. Wasn’t bad as it didn’t break me out but any product I applied after would burn slightly (not using any other actives or retinol with it), I even bought 2 new moisturisers thinking I needed something gentler. It reminds me of the old school toners for acne that would really feel like they’d stripped my skin of everything good. I’ve been using the Inkey List’s Beta Hydroxy acid for 3 weeks and it’s so much nicer! No sensitivity and I really notice a difference with brighter skin. Feels less stripping too.
    Amazing!
    For someone who has combo/highly sensitive skin, this has been great! I’ve been using it for two weeks every evening and I’m already seeing a difference! My t-zone has definitely become less oily and my blackheads aren’t as bad as they used to be. Can’t say it has made my pores any smaller tough. I think this product will become a staple in my skincare routine! Definitely worth the money.
    My only true holy grail product
    This is a true holy grail product!! I never get breakouts when I use this (even during my time of the month!) and when I’m without it I soon know about it. It’s been six weeks since I finished my last bottle (the longest I’ve been without it!) and my skin has not been good, but this arrived yesterday and already it’s working its magic on stubborn spots! I highly recommend a sweep of this each day to keep a lid on spots (particularly between the eyebrows and jawline, it’s a miracle cure!)
    My first ever holy grail
    I have had troubles skin since the age of 17/18, I am now 25. I have never ever found a product that makes a noticeable change to my skin because it is so stubborn and congested. Just for background, I have always suffered from mild breakouts, textured skin, blackheads, literally hundreds of bumps under the skin and super oily. I used this ONCE and my skin transformed! Over the course of using this daily for around 2 weeks now my skin is smooth, texture has almost all gone, pores are smaller and I the incredibly stubborn acne I had from a period 2 months ago has all gone. Literal miracle worker!
    THE BEST
    Every time I use it my skin feels amazing I see a huge difference! My skin glows...
    made my skin worse
    I bought after reading the really good reviews and thought it would be perfect to stop my breakouts around my chin. unfortunately this made my skin worse with big spots and also smaller under the skin spots. I used for about a month and usually don't have sensitive skin but this did not agree with my skin at all!
    Best ever!
    This is my desert island item. I ran out during lockdown and couldn’t get my hands on a new bottle anywhere, I already knew how good it was but missed it SO much more than I thought I would. Seemed expensive for the amount but a bottle lasted me almost a year, I put it straight onto my face because I feel like it’s wasted on a cotton pad. Requires consistent use to get that glow.
    GOOD PRODUCT
    I’ve struggled with my skin for a few years now, with hormonal acne, breakouts, I have combination skin. I’ve used all the prescribed antibiotics and topical creams ect. Seeing the reviews of this I thought I’d try this. I’ve been using it for just over a week and a half but as a spot treatment, putting some onto my finger and on the specific spot. It definitely gets rid of them quicker. As it’s contains salicylic acid ect it draws everything up causing a few more spots to appear around the area (I think it’s called purging) however it makes them all go away quicker than without it. When using it too often it does dry out the skin so be weary about that If you were planning on using it daily over the whole face.Im using it along with Inkey list salicylic acid cleanser, niacinamide and Hyaluronic acid and my normal moisturiser with SPF. Overall my skin is less red and angry and I can’t wait to see the full results in a few weeks time. (fingers crossed it all continues to work)
    Lifesaver!
    Holy grail of acid toner. Used three times a week, it clears and brightens complexion, keeps blackheads at bay and decimates any spots that dare to appear ... yet it’s gentle, no redness, no peeling. Just buy it and thank me later
    Broke out
    Broke out within 12 hours of use. I have extremely sensitive skin, GP advised I have mild acne, I believe I have hormone imbalance.
    Perfect
    This is the perfect best bha product ever. I have bought this for many years. It works and feels very good
    Highly effective
    It has been only 3 weeks (almost) and my skin's texture has significantly improved. It cleared up my acne in the cheeks and forehead. I was hesitant to use it at first because it has a strong smell of chemicals, and I was afraid it would too harsh for me. I am glad that my skin didn't react badly and didn't break me out.
    Were have you been all my life!
    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING PRODUCT! I literally used it 3 times and my pores are clear and the few black heads I had on the tip of my nose are gone. Will not live without this product.
    Believe the HYPE!
    It really is as good as everyone says it is! Hydrating, non-oily texture doesn’t dry out the skin, and pores are clean and happy! Love.
    Best exfoliator i have ever used.
    I cannot believe the results this product has given me. I have a darker complexion and have hyperpigmentation from some spots that went away. I can already see the difference. My skin looks clearer the next after I use this in the evening. I'm stocking up.
    Does what it promised
    Absolutely fantastic product. First time used I could not believe that it works so fast and effectively. However, I was so excited that used twice a day (the manufacturer says it is ok). But next day my skin was so dry and sensitized. Better to increase the "rest time for skin". Best of the best for pimples, acne and blackheads.
    Maskne gone in 2 days!
    Amazing!!! Since face coverings/ masks have been mandatory in the UK, my skin really broke out -especially on my chin with under the skin bumps and spots, that were really sore too. I’ve never suffered from acne (I’m 28) This product has healed all spots (they’ve scabbed over/ redness has gone!) and bumps have diminished after using for only 2 days! The red blotches on my cheeks have also disappeared, I am already going to purchase the full size, highly recommend amazing product!!!!!
    Breakouts No More
    After reading all the positive reviews I thought I would give this a try and I’m so glad I did! I have really noticed a difference in my skin since using. I normally suffer with breakouts but they seem have disappeared. I can’t recommend this product enough I have just purchased the smaller bottle too for travelling!
    Fantastic breakout controller
    If my skin ever seems to be on the brink of a breakout, the first thing I do after cleansing is take a cotton pad soaked with this acid and wipe it over the affected area. I wake up the next morning and the area seems calmer, the spots less angry. There is - of course - no way of proving this product is what has caused my skin to clear up, but as someone who has dealt with bouts of cystic acne in the past, I do really think this makes a difference. I’ll always have a bottle on my shelves.
    Amazing for acne prone skin but not overnight
    I've literally never left a review on any product before but with this one I just had to: it really is a game changer. I have oily, acne prone skin that is super sensitive to irritation. During lockdown my skin has been acting up more than usual so I wanted to take the time to try this product that came highly recommended from my friends. Whilst I did not wake up the next day with transformed skin, within the first week my skin is literally glowing. My family (who never notice haha) actually commented that I had a glow several times. It is a lot smoother, clearer and a lot of the congestion I had is gone. Particularly, closed comedones I had on my forehead that LITERALLY no product has been able to tackle were literally killed off by this product. I do want to add a word of warning though: it says to start it off slowly and being over zealous (also at home so who is going to see me) I basically immediately got myself to once daily use. I purged as a result which is fine because those pimples were on their way out anyway but if that's something you don't want to deal with then use a more conservative approach of a couple of times a week. However, it has not dried my skin out at all with this daily use when usually my cheeks react very easily and dry out when I take it too far. Overall, amazing product and I don't see myself ever being without it. If your break outs have been getting you down please try this and I truly hope it works for you.
    Great product but not great value
    I do this think product works and I have seen improvements in my skin, as I could see visible improvements in my pore size, but I don't think I could justify repurchasing due to the price. I just think there are other products from cheaper brands that do just as well. If money is not a concern then this is definitely a good product.
    Made a big difference overnight
    One of the only skin products I've ever used where you can actually see a huge difference after the first use. Visibly cleared my pores! Can't be without this now.
    Game changer!!!!!
    This is my new holy grail! It cleared up My very annoying adult acne so much quicker than anything else I’ve tried (including prescriptions) although it’s not a super quick fix it definitely does work at reducing the number of spots and has got rid of those annoying little under the skin bumps I had on my forehead and temples. Just be warned it is a bit drying so a good moisturizer is needed, I use the Paulas choice ultra-rich moisturizer at night and my skin feels lovely in the morning. Although a little expensive for me it’s totally worth it!
    Changed my skin
    Ordered this after hearing very good things and it did not disappoint! Have been using it a month or so now and have seen a huge improvement in my skin! Since using this I haven’t even had any spots and most of the scarring/pigmentation has gone. Highly recommend to anyone that suffers from the occasional spots or scarring from spots.
    Changed my life
    I never write reviews but I had to with this product. I bought this about a month ago and have used it twice a day every day. For the past year I had suffered with congested pores on my forehead, the type of spots that would never turn into a head, wouldnt just disappear, they wouldn't be red but just bumps that you could only see in certain lights and when the sun bounced my skin. They weren't horrific but I knew they were there, but then after using this within 2 weeks I noticed a difference. They've now fully gone and I haven't had any new ones appear, this is the only change to my skincare and lifestyle so I know it's this that has helped. It's helped my all over complexion as I used it all over my face, haven't had any breakouts and my skin just glows and looks so even. I cant expess enough how amazing this product is and I will never be without anymore!
    Drying and harsh
    This made my face feel like it was on fire after I used it twice in 2 days. It dried my face out massively as well. I can’t use it anymore. I have sensitive dry skin and I don’t normally use acids as standard so maybe I made the wrong choice.
    Amazing!!!!
    I have suffered from redness across the tops of my cheeks for years, very spot-prone there. To be honest, I didn't expect much but thought, why not? I literally cannot believe how amazing this has been, it's almost dissolved my redness overnight. I'm just in shock to be honest. I have before and after pics, but can't post here unfortunately :( Always use this before serum/moisturiser otherwise it can't penetrate your skin and will do nothing.
    Great treatment, prefer the lotion though.
    I love this treatment as it definitely gives amazing results. I use twice a day every day and have been doing so for roughly 8 months. However, I would recommend the lotion over this as it lasts far longer. I went through two bottle of liquid September-January and then switched to the lotion at the beginning of January and am still using the same bottle - so the liquid lasted me two months whilst the lotion lasted me 4! Both treatments are effective though!
    Good but not great
    I’ve been using this product for over a month now after hearing everyone rave about it. I’ve seen good results so far but I think I need I’d probably need to use this for at least a couple months more to decide whether or not it actually does everything it promises to. I haven’t been having any major breakout, my skin tone seems to be getting more even but I’m not sure, I have noticed my pores are less visible and to an extent my oiliness has also been reduced. I still have some redness which is persisting and I still do notice some dry patches on my nose even the morning after I use the product. Overall I’ll keep using this to see if things get better. Liking it so far but kinda skeptic, especially because it’s a bit pricier for a bottle this small.
    If you suffer with Milia's... YOU NEED THIS
    You will break out to begin with (I did) but put i promise you as your coming to the end of your 30ml bottle you'll be ordering the bigger size, just be patient. I suffer with Milia's across my cheek bones & around the eye area, this is helped attack these better than anything else I've tried before. The texture of the skin has completely changed & my whole face looks clearer. 10/10 from me, I'm desperate for it to come back into stock.
    Incredible Product
    Been using this product for 6 weeks now. Can say i’ve definitely noticed a difference in my skin. I have dry acne prone skin, and this has helped fade my acne scars without drying my skin. I have been using it with the ordinary niacinamide 10% solution and have been loving it. Would recommend to anyone, but i personally only use it every other day rather than everyday/twice a day (as the bottle states) as i found this too much for my skin.
    Not for me.
    I was really excited to use this on my face based on so many positive reviews. Just to be sure I got the 30ml to try and I'm glad I did. Yes, my skin was a bit smoother in the morning but I can get that from other products. I have sensitive skin (as a lot of people lately) and this just made it worse. It sucked all the moisture out of my skin and it has taken me a very long time to get it back to where it was before this product. I think it would be good for someone that doesn't have any breakouts and wants a quick skin resurfacer.
    Be patient, it's worth it
    This is the third time I've bought the product in the last 3 years, I'm happy purchasing the small bottle as it lasts so long, and would highly recommend... Agreed with some comments that you need to give it time as you probably won't notice results straight away, but it will be worth it! Skin is clearer and definitely has a nice glow... For application, I apply 3-5 drops once a day on my skin, and I personally avoid application too close to my eyes. It does feel slightly tingly and doesn't smell amazing (but id rather a product that focused on working well than smelling nice.)
    It's that great
    I've bought a few bottles already for the past few years, and now I know why. I tended to use this more sporadically, but recently I had a few breakouts so started to use it about 3/4 nights a week and my skin has completely changed. It's more clear and even. It can be a bit drying, but nothing like other acne treatments I used in the past and with a solid moisturizer after you are good to go. It also didn't cause any sensitivity which I love. Will buy again for sure
    The smell
    So, I bought the lil’ size. I quite like it. The only con is probably the smell. It smell like a nail polish remover
    Try to Believe
    I loved it! Lately, I am having the sensation my skin needs to be purified deeply- even if I'm not a pro acne type- and this product is making my pores feel smaller and overall glow. Love it
    Didn’t clear pore congestion
    I have normal - oily T zone skin, wanted something to help reduce congestion on the T zone, glad I’ve got the 30ml to try before investing into big size. After using a few times a week for several week I didn’t notice reduced congestion but the pores do appear slightly smaller. My skin is sensitive and not used to acids but did react ok to this one. After all, I won’t be purchasing another one but will be onto trying something new.
    Ride or die
    This amazing product got rid of all my small spots on my forehead. I had been battling these for years using all sorts of exfoliants. Nothing even comes close to this. It is effective yet gentle, doesn't dry my sensitive skin out. People started asking me why my skin was so glowy after I started using this. I already got a couple of friends to buy it because I love it so much, and they are loving it too. Also, the price is absolutely fair for the use you get out of one bottle. My only complaint is that since the bottle is not clear, you can't really see how low you are running on the product.
    Broke me out
    Broke me out after two uses
    Gentle but effective exfoliant
    Paula's Choice products are among my favourite and I've been using her exfoliants for years. She doesn't use fragrances or gimmicks in her products, just high-quality skincare. My skin is fair, more often dry than otherwise and highly sensitive. I can't tolerate fragrance or harsh essential oils in any skin or makeup product. If you're not used to BHA exfoliants, start using the 2% Skin Perfecting Liquid carefully. Salicylic acid is a safe but powerful ingredient. Add it to your skincare routine once a day to start, I recommend in the evening after cleansing. I use a teaspoon or so in cotton wool and follow with a serum and moisturizer. I wake up with clear, calm and healthy skin.
    Great for blackheads
    After 2 weeks of using this 3 times a week, I can see differences in my skin. I have fewer blackheads - or at least they appear smaller..... I will use it more consistently and hope for clearer skin.
    just one night...
    This is a classic that keeps my pimples away and gives me smooth skin, will not travel without it. I'm used to acids so doesn't give me shedding or any other problems.
    Amazing
    I have acne prone skin with lots of bumps too and this helped to bring them down and clear my skin up. Would recommend to anyone, I use it every other night and my skin is looking way clearer and more glowy!
    SO GLAD
    So glad this is finally available on Cult Beauty so I no longer have to order through the Paula's Choice website. Best BHA ever.
