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.

Excellent Exfoliation

As someone with oily congested skin, I really do like this product. I use it about 4 or 5 times a week on my problem areas such as my nose, cheeks, and chin and it definitely helps to clear my pores. Yes, it feels a tad oily upon application but this doesn’t actually negatively affect my skin so I’m happy to let it be and do its thing. A great buy and worth every penny.

This really has the wow factor the same day of using it. The wow comes from not only yourself but people at work noticed the first day I used it. Amazing!

Lovely product

Trialling the smaller bottle of this at the moment but will definitely buy the bigger size when it's finished. I apply this once a day after toner and after two weeks of use I have noticed that my skin is smoother, brighter and clearer. Previous blemish marks have faded. Doesn't sting and helps my moisturiser to sink in! Really recommend!

Only product that has worked for me

This stuff actually works! I've suffered from PCOS related acne for years and I've tried everything including antibiotics and Roaccutane but it's not till I started using this that I noticed a huge difference. I also bought Paula's Choice cleanser and I'll continue to use both as part of my routine. It's expensive, but it's worth of it for the peace of mind and confidence of having clearer skin - I've recently gone out make up free for the first time in years!

Amazing product

I've been using this product for over a year now and it's now an integral part of my beauty routine. I have dry skin that used to be prone to breakouts, but after using the BHA liquid for a few weeks (just of an evening, after I've cleansed & before I moisturise) my skin cleared. After over a year of use, my skin tone is definitely more even and my face is always super soft! Thanks for stocking such a great product.

skin saver

since I've begun using their formula, my skin is the clearest. It's like I'm 9 years old again. it can be quite dehydrating sometimes, so alternate use.

Significant improvement

Probably one of the most effect and reasonably priced product I have ever bought. The whole range is infact fantastic. Does everything it says on the label and the difference is extremely noticeable in a week. Pores are definitely small, less breakouts, skin looks smoother and improves in balance. Worth every penny
