    Why is it different?

    Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid is a unique, completely non-abrasive, leave-on liquid exfoliator for daily use on all skin types. It is our #1-selling exfoliator around the world—for good reason! It not only gently and evenly removes built-up layers of dead skin, but also increases hydration, skin smoothness and radiance in ways you never thought possible.

    This exfoliator has an optimal pH range of 3.2–3.8.

    All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance-free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

    What does it do?
    Gently exfoliates built-up layers of dead skin, just like your skin did naturally when you were younger. It also effectively unclogs pores, optimizing skin renewal and clarity for remarkably smoother, perfect-looking skin, smaller pores, a refined texture, and less visible lines and wrinkles. You will see results the first time you use it!

    Who is it for?
    All skin types may use this product, but the texture is especially suited for those with normal to oily or combination skin, stubborn blackheads, and blemish-prone skin. It can also be used regularly to eliminate calluses on feet, elbows and knees.
