Not for my skin :((( It might be a very good product but it breaks out my skin not for me!

Love Just pure luxurious and youthful exuberance with use. This is so perfect for all skin care needs! The packaging is lovely and so is the container! It's easy to use and you get real results! Highly recommend to anyone looking for glowing skin!

2% salicylic acid ? has a cult following ? like water with a little bit of an oily texture ? simple and short ingredient list ? alcohol-free, fragrance-free, essential oil-free ? contains salicylic acid (SA), the gold standard ingredient for treating problem skin; it exfoliates, treats blackheads, prevents acne, and is an anti-inflammatory ? SA is oil-soluble so it is able to go deep into the pores and dissolve excess sebum and keratin plugs ? contrary to popular belief, 2% SA does not make skin more sensitive to the sun, it actually has photoprotective properties ? 2% strength is gentle enough for everyday ? has a low pH of 3.2 to 3.8 which helps BHA work more effectively ? contains green tea extract, a great antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory as well ? no purging experienced ? no irritation nor breakouts; I only use exfoliating products once to thrice a week; always remember to start low and go slow with chemical exfoliators ? solution is packaged in an opaque plastic bottle with a twist open cap Cons ? oily texture can be unpleasant ? leaves an oily feel on skin whether I apply using my fingers or a cotton pad ? faint natural scent may also be unpleasant ? did not make it into my repurchase list; I prefer the Paula's Choice Pore-Refining Treatment with 2% BHA ? those new to BHA might experience purging, a normal process that happens when skin turnover rate is speeding up

Amazing! This exfoliant from Paula's Choice is a well-kept secret treasure. If only it had been around during my teens and twenties, those acne eruptions would either not have happened or been a very mild occurrence. Decades later, my skin has never looked or felt so good. It is a mild exfoliant that is great for any skin type, but works well for my combo/sensitive skin.
