Achieve flawless skin with Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, an exfoliating fluid fortified with salicylic acid to help renew skin and minimise pores.

Absorbing quickly into the skin, the leave-on exfoliant targets both the skin's surface and deep down, sloughing away dulling dead skin cells whilst penetrating inside the pore to reshape and unclog deep within. Redness and blemishes are addressed and reduced.

Its lightweight texture delivers deep exfoliation and increases cell turnover so skin looks renewed and radiant with a more even tone. Salicylic acid harnesses antioxidant properties and increases collagen production; the appearance of wrinkles are reduced and skin feels firmer, healthier.

Expect renewed skin with improved appearance, texture and function. Protected, fortified and healthy. - K.N.

Suitable for all skin types, especially normal, oily or combination.

Non-irritating and 100% fragrance free. Not tested on animals.

IMPORTANT: Those allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) should not use products containing salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid).

More Details

  • Paula's Choice
  • Skin Perfecting
    • Apply once or twice daily after cleansing and toning.
    • Lightly soak a cotton pad and apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids).
    • Do not rinse.
    • For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater.

    BHA Advice:
    To reduce skin flaking or possible irritation, some first-time users should use the BHA once a day or once every other day (preferably at night) for the first few weeks. After prolonged use (4-6 weeks), you can apply the BHA more frequently, and eventually it can be used twice a day. For some people it may only be necessary to use the BHA once a day or once every other day. The frequency of use for this BHA product completely depends on how your skin reacts so you may have to experiment until you find what works best for you. If redness, dryness, or irritation occurs, adjust frequency of application.

Working well for me

I thought I'd try this as I wasn't having much success with Glycolic based products and wanted to try something with Lactic acid in it. So far my skin seems to be responding well to this product. I started by buying the small trial sized bottle to make sure it didn't irritate my skin and once I was happy with the results I was getting I decided to buy the full size. Just a reminder that you must use a product with SPF on the face if you are using this as it will make your skin more sensitive to UVA/UVB rays.

I've always used a facial scrub containing beads but now laws have changed, I was looking for an alternative. I also have trouble with ingrowing hairs on my legs and googling solutions suggested using a salicylic acid treatment. Having had small bumps on my face since having prescribed long term acne treatment, 5 days use of this and they all but gone. And I've been using it on my shins too with a noticeable improvement already. A little miracle in a bottle!

The best!

I've had stubborn bumps on my cheeks for about six months, tried so many different products and some would calm them down. However, this completely got rid of the nasty bumps! My skin looks so good and even better with foundation on top. I would highly recommend!

This does EXACTLY what it says it will - it has reduced congestion in my pores and the pore size appears reduced as a result. It is slightly drying but for a normal/combination skin type it is fine. Fantastic product for all ages who want to refine their skin.

Love this stuff!

I'm on my third bottle of this product. Before I tried this I was obsessed with using harsh face scrubs every day. Since I've been using this I've not used a scrub once.... A massive thing for me! This product has smoothed out my skin, cleared my pores and stopped the bumps I used to get under my skin. I'm a pro makeup artist and now recommend this product to any of my clients with skin issues.... I'm hooked!

I ordered the trial size of this from the Paula's Choice website and was so impressed that I've ordered the full size. This works absolute wonders on my combination, post menopausal skin! I ordered the trial size kind of on a whim because I was having a particularly bad week with my skin; breakouts everywhere, including on my cheeks which I had never experienced before. I don't know why my skin was so angry, but angry it was. Tried this twice a day after cleansing. After two days what a difference! I've now been using it for a about a week and I just love what it does to my skin. No more breakouts, pores barely visible and skin really smooth. My t-zone isn't the usual oil slick first thing in the morning or at the end of the day. Love, love, love.
