Paula’s Choice ‘Skin Perfecting’ 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant

Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant has a lightweight lotion texture that works to reveal smooth, clear skin by exfoliating both the skin's surface and inside the pore. Because BHA helps reshape the pore lining, it unclogs pores and exfoliates the built-up layers on the outside of skin while improving cell turnover rate. The result is healthier, smoother skin, creating a dramatic improvement in the skin's appearance, feel and function, especially if blemishes are a concern. Research indicates BHA (beta hydroxy acid) increases collagen production and drastically smoothes the surface of the skin. It also has antibacterial properties that attack blemish-causing bacteria. The exfoliant contains no waxy, heavy ingredients and absorbs easily, setting to a soft matte finish. How to use: Apply to clean skin. Dispense a dime-sized amount and massage over face. For daytime, wear under a product rated SPF 15 or higher. 3.3 oz. Fragrance-free; colorant-free. By Paula's Choice; made in the USA. on Belle Belle Beauty

My skin woes have been a little more intense this year. I used to singularly worry about pigmentation, but lately I have developed rosacea and some clogged pores on my forehead – not acne per se, but definitely less than clear skin. I read a round-up of best beauty items, and included this toner/exfoliant. I just had to give it a whirl – sounded like it was just the ticket for my issues.

And it really was! I use this in the AM after washing my face (my rosacea treatment is required at night). Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant has a lightweight lotion texture and is non-irritating. It works to exfoliate skin surface and inside the pores. BHA (beta hydroxy acid) increases collagen production and drastically smoothes the surface of the skin. It also has antibacterial properties that attack blemish-causing bacteria.

I apply on a cotton pad and then wait for a bit to apply a nourishing SPF (this is my current favorite). Made in the USA. Fragrance-free; colorant-free. Available at Nordstrom.
