Details: Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid is a leave-on exfoliant. It removes old skin cells both on the skin's surface and inside the pore. It helps with acne breakouts, is for all skin types, creates radiant even-toned skin, reduces redness and builds collagen. It is good for those who have rosacea. Helps diminish wrinkles.
Review: Paula's Choice makes wonderful claims to help keep wrinkles at bay, and help for acne breakouts. I was hesitant to try this, as I had just been using an AHA. It was love at first try with the BHA. No stinging, no strong chemical smell. It made my skin feel hydrated and very soft and silky. Actually AHA's and BHA's only have one molecule different in their makeup. I vote to use BHA from here on out.
The one thing I didn't like is that my face was now breaking out more than ever. I assume my clogged pores were now unclogging. I can live with that. It did last about 10 days before the breakouts diminished. However, during this entire time, my face felt smoother than ever before, even after the AHA.
Paula has a booklet titled "20 Beauty Myths Busted!" In there she describes how to keep wrinkles at bay. She recommends "regular use of brilliantly formulated sunscreens, exfoliants (AHAs or BHA), moisturizers loaded with antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, and retinoids (components of Vitamin A including retinol), among numerous others are your best options, and this is supported by copious research." She goes on to say that you can save thousands of dollars by not purchasing antiwrinkle and anti-aging skin care products that don't perform like they should.
I've had a very hard clogged pore for several weeks. Once I started using Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid, this has greatly diminished. Not completely gone yet, but almost. I was beginning to think this would look more like a mole if things didn't improve. I don't have that concern any more.
Through BzzAgent I #GotItFree. I was given several samples to hand out and let others try. Everyone who has tried this has had positive results and comments. It is a great product.
Pros: Helps to keep wrinkles at bay. Face is smoother and softer. Face feels more hydrated.
Cons: Didn't like the 10 days of breakouts while pores were unclogging.
My Rating: Thumbs UP!
