Product review: Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant All Skin Types

Like many people I began noticing that with age the pores on my nose became more noticeable.  I have tried a few exfoliants and some worked better than others but not enough for me to say that the difference was significant.  That was before I have tried Paula's Choice.  As you see in attached photos the results are pretty noticeable.   The first photo was taken on March 6, the second one on April 20, so about 6 weeks of treatment.
It seems that at least for my skin they got the formula right.  Paula's choice skin perfecting 2% BHA linguid penetrates the pours but does not irritate them. It just unclogs them and improves cell turnover rate.  This not only effect pores but those faint marks left by old acne and light sun spots.

I like that Paula's choice it unscented.  This is a big plus for me, as it means I can use it before bed time and not worry that a strong scent will keep me awake.  When I put Paula's Choice on my face it feels stickier than other similar products.  I use it in the evening so the stickiness does not bother me, and I am not applying anything on top of it.  The stickiness is gone in less than 1 hour. 

I never heard of Paula's choice before I was offered to try it as part of Buzz Agent program.  I am so glad I signed up.

I am continuing to use Paula's Choice every other day.  And hope to see further improvements.

  1. I'm assuming you used the product twice a day. How many weeks passed between the before and after pictures? I am impressed!

  2. Amy, Thank you for a great question. I should have included that information (I will update after posting this reply). I started on March 6, the picture was taken on April 20, so about 6 weeks.
