I have a hard time with a lot of skincare products because I have such reactive skin. Even some of my former favorite cleansers, exfoliators, and moisturizers have been leaving my skin red and tingly. So, I’ve honestly been extremely wary about trying new skincare products. However, I’ve been a fan of the Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid for a few years, having first reviewed it in 2014.
A few months ago I started using it again, remembering how much I loved it. Until tragedy struck…I drunkenly knocked it into the toilet.

My girl HeyAprill always sings it’s praises too, and she hooked it up with a new bottle post-toilet disaster. So, what does this magic liquid do? This chemical exfoliant uses salicylic acid to slough off dead skin cells, unclogs pores, aids in acne treatment & prevention, and can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
I put this baby back into rotation, and not just for my face. I also use it on my underarms to lighten them, and…my vagina…for lack of a better word, for ingrown hair maintenance. I can’t say it’s an authorized use of the product, but it really works! You just have to be careful. When used on the face, I wake up with baby smooth & tightened skin. I use it no more than every other day, just because I don’t want to exfoliate too much. I recommend using the Shiseido Facial Cotton, because they are gentle & lint-free.
If you’ve yet to try the product, I highly recommend it and think it could suit all skin types, as dry skin needs exfoliation just as much as oily skin does!
