I want to try the one you mention at the end the one on the blue bottle combined with the weekly exfoliant because I have breakouts and clogged pores my question is can I still use benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent ?

Awkward Jerald says:

Will the 2% BHA help my Post Inflammatory HYPERPIGMENTATION? The marks are all over my cheeks. My cheeks are smooth just the mark.

Gracie E says:

Can you mix aha and bha at the same time like the 8% aha gel and 2% bha liquid?

Jeremy says:

Would this help with acne scars on the cheek and forehead? I’ve had acne since school and all throughout college. I’m 26 (m) and the scars don’t look good at all. I have not tried any cosmetic (laser, chemical peels, dermabraison) yet because I don’t want to risk it… Would the 2% BHA gel/liquid show me results in a month? My aim is to fade the scars gradually…

Silly Jilly says:

by the way I used the skin perfecting 2% BHA liquid before bed and slept in it and when I woke up the next day my skin was slightly peeling like a real thin layer. is this supposed to happen and how long does this last?

Siobhan A says:

Whilst this video is quite good it really needs to be updated.

I have long been a customer but now you have gone from having 3 textures in 2 strengths to a confusing flurry of options when a customer hits the BHA section. Then I lose the will to shop because I know I want a 2% but should I shop from the Clear Range the resist range the standard range?

This gets even more confusing when you really look in to it as many products seem to be the same thing in different packaging

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is actually identical to our Clear Extra Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution 2% BHA

Also the Paulas choice for men is just the resist repackaged which okay I do get why you would try to appeal to male aesthetics

And then there is the clear regular strength is that just the gel in a clear range package??

Ive just spent half an hour trying to figure it all out and I have a science degree not customer friendly

zulfam1 says:

what about the CLEAR range? is the Clear regular strength bha more gentle than the skin perfecting 2% bha?

also if I switch from using the skin perfecting liquid to the skin perfecting 2%gel, would I experience any side effects?

Mariposa says:

I am 24 years old and have never used a chemical exfoliant either, I have mild rosacea, can I use the 2% ?? Please respond

Silly Jilly says:

how do I use this? can it be combined with my nightly regimen of multi peptide serum, niacinamide, retinoid 2%, vitiman C 23% and my hyaluronic acid? I need the exfoliation being that I’m going on 40 but still want to use my anti aging skin care regimen. how do I work in the Paula’s Choice Skin perfecting 2% BHA liquid salicylic acid?

j vallejo says:

if I’ve never used a chemical exfoliant, do you think I’d be ok starting with 2%?

Brittany Maharaj says:

I had a problem with the 2% BHA liquid exfoliant being tacky and sticky on my skin. It feels like it isn’t absorbing. Is this normal?

DaiAsh says:

I have dry skin with the occasional breakout… would I be best with going with an aha over the bha?

batuagel says:

Does it make sense to use aha and bha together. If so: Is it possible to use the 2% bha and aha liquid together or right after one an other? or must I wait (minutess?) or use them seperetly (day/night)?

Estir Ivanova says:

Would you recommend the BHA exfoliants for younger skin? (17-18yr olds)
