What makes this product unique?
The unique, high-concentration of 4% BHA goes deep to exfoliate skin quickly so problematic pores, bumps, and uneven skin texture are improved in half the time. The time-released formula delivers dramatic results, while antioxidants revive skin’s firm appearance for a more youthful look—all with a luxe serum-gel texture that glides over skin for a soothing finish. This exfoliant has an optimal pH range of 3.5–4.0.

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

What does it do?
Skin becomes dull, dry and congested when dead skin cells build up on its surface. BHA (beta hydroxy acid) mimics the natural exfoliation process of younger skin by helping it shed extra layers while unclogging and clearing pores. Antioxidants step in to further reduce visible signs of aging.
