  • GENTLE NON-ABRASIVE LEAVE-ON EXFOLIATOR: with 2% BHA (Beta hydroxy acid) to unclog & diminish enlarged pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, smooth wrinkles & brighten & even out skin tone. Combats redness, wrinkles, aging, enlarged pores, & blackheads.
  • Dramatically improves skin's texture for radiant youthful even-toned skin. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA also known as salicylic acid) mimics the natural exfoliation process of younger skin by helping it shed extra layers while unclogging and clearing pores.
  • HYDRATE, BRIGHTEN & SMOOTH FINE LINES: Our unique, non-abrasive, leave-on exfoliant is gentle enough for daily use on all skin types. Exfoliates dead skin cells while clearing pores for a more even tone, plus it visibly reduces fine lines & wrinkles.
  • Paula's Choice facial exfoliants are gentler on delicate skin of the face & neck than an abrasive face scrub, which can cause micro-tears. A BHA leave-on exfoliator delivers hydration & can exfoliate directly inside the pore & improve how the pore works.
  • Look to Paula's Choice for highly effective skin care solutions for the face & body. Our full line of facial cleansers, exfoliators, toners, moisturizers, serums, eye creams, facial masks, sunscreens, body washes & more are made to care for every kind of skin.

Write something fair here By:
BE AWARE. If you ever found this one greasy, you are not using it correct. The correct way to use this is, wait for it is drying!!! which means wait at least 10 minutes. I am so glad I found this one. It is like a medica process which hurts if i apply a lot and more frequently. No damage to my skin and i am on my 3rd bottle. On the other hand, it makes my skin poreless and glow. Highly recommend if you are big pore in T area and have chronic acnes, and you want to save money on medical process.
Love it! By:
Love this! There is a reason there are so many good reviews - it actually works! It’s very effective but still gentle and non-drying. This has helped with my acne so much while also keeping my skin a lot smoother.
Where have you been all my life? By:
Let me start off by giving the background as to why I ordered this product. I'm 37, have had 'acne' all my life, and having been an adult with bumps on my forehead and tried every possible product on the market, I've just about given up on it and thought to myself "oh well, I guess this is how it's just going to be". I've visited numerous dermatologists, I've tried topicals, I've tried Accutane (which as amazing as it is, wreaks havoc on the body), I've tried B5 pantothenic acid, clay masks, VI peel, Apple Cider Vinegar, cutting out alcohol, dairy, caffeine, sugar, ...I mean you name it, I've tried it. And with every single product, it improved slightly, or had no impact.After tons of research, I learned about fungal acne. I think this is a VERY important piece of information, as I had no idea such a thing existed. I started digging more into it. As I read more, I started to think "maybe the reason most these things don't work on my acne, is because I'm trying to treat bacterial acne and that's not at all what I'm dealing with". So digging in further, I started reading about using Head & Shoulders Shampoo on my face. Yes. My face. HEAR ME OUT...the reason that the shampoo works well on acne is because it contains Zinc pyrithione. Slather H&S on your face, leave it on for 5 minutes and wash it off. Do this for a week and see if you see results, if you do...welcome to my world!I also ordered the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting Salicylic Acid and starting using this along with my H&S routine. Some of the reviews complain about this being sticky after application. Do this--- put it on after the shower, your face will absorb it much better and you won't be left with any sticky feeling. Also, be mindful of how much you apply. This isn't face painting, so don't drench yourself with it.It's been almost 2 weeks since I've started this routine...no doctor...no dermatologist...no one could help me get to this point. Just a bunch of research and trial and error. Hopefully this'll help some others out there, as I found it hard to get advice on how much, what, and how often to do things. As always, you may need to shift and change your routine up to what works for you and your body.My skin has been clear beyond anything I could have imagined or I've ever seen. The only other method that worked this well as Accutane, but that came with monthly testing, liver testing and joint pain like I've never felt before.Google image your type of acne, then backtrack to articles and find what type of acne you have. If you have fungal acne, the standard acne medication out there won't do much for you.
Smaller looking pores and tighter skin By:
This product is excellent. It tightened my skin and has made my pores appear smaller. Just what I needed!
I love this! but smell is not good By:
I love this!but smell is not good.
Five Stars By:
Bought for blackhead removal and to shrink pores. Not doing that necessarily, but my breakouts have minimized
This works well By:
I have very sensitive skin and can break out in an allergic reaction at almost anything. But my skin tolerates this pretty well. It does sting a bit when going on but doesn't last. It will also leave you looking shinny so keep that in mind. I usually put it on before bed.
Keeps my SF down By:
These really work at keeping my sebaceous filaments down. If I dont use this, my nose will feel almost bumpy/prickly with my clogged pores. One use of this really helps and results are felt/seen overnight! I only use it 2-3x a week because if I use it any more than that then I will break out in really big cyst-like pimples. When I first incorporated this into my routine, I only started at 1x per week then found my sweet spot at 2-3x per week.I use only at night and swipe it with a square cotton pad. I make sure to wait 20 min until I continue my skincare routine. It does feel a little residue-y after, like almost oily but not.Overall, they last quite awhile since you dont need much with every use. I like this product and will stick with it.
Love By:
Makes my skin look like glass---2nd time purchasing---I just seems to tighten the skin where pores disappear.
It works! By:
I noticed a difference after the first night I used it bc when I woke up the next day. My face looked brighter in comparison to when I use a face mask with instant results. I will be buying the full size bottle when I run out

This joint changes the game By:
IMPORTANT: I'm 34, male, had very bad oil and acne in my late teens and early twenties.In my late twenties till today, my skin is pretty much fine (especially compared to early years). However, there was always an issue with enlarged/clogged pores, the right amount of moisture, redness, etc. The large pimples were largely a thing of the past, and while I realized that less is more, I still wondered if there were a product that would improve my complexion. I read that salicylic acid was THE thing for pores and redness, but I was like "well i tried it in face washes and exfoliators and it didn't improve things much and made my skin too sensitive". However, I read on some blog that salicylic acid in face washes is largely rubbish, because it is truly and only effective if it stays ON the skin. That blog recommended different products, some of them quite expensive, and listed as a cost effective option....Paula's Choice...this product right here.The bottle lasts a long time. For me, over six months. That makes it very cheap despite what I considered a hefty price tag up front of $25. I use it almost twice a day. And it helps a lot. It helps my skin retain a "after washing and moisturizing" look long after the cleansing has been done. It really helps the overall balance - not getting too oily, not as clogged, and without the harshness of other things I've tried in the past. I use a very gentle face wash (Cetophil, Simple) or even bar soap if I'm out, and a light moisturizer after. I keep everything else non-strict, light, simple. But this product is the one thing I'd say really helps.I couldn't recommend it as an acne cure because I never tried it during those times. I couldn't recommend it as step X of a Y step process, because it isn't my experience. But for those who want to even out their complexion, reduce clogging, and are afraid of harsh things that could make things worse...I encourage you to try this specific product.
Great product By:
it's good for sensitive skin.,no irritation at all.
Gentle yet effective By:
I have used this toner for years and it never fails me. It has a liquid consistency with minimal to no smell. It dries on my skin quick and I experience no redness from it. I highly recommend this toner for anyone suffering from clogged pores and acne breakout. I have tried the EXTRA STRENGTH before and even though they have the same 2% BHA; it was too strong for me and it irritated and dried me out. Give the REGULAR STRENGTH a try, you won't be disappointed!
Has little to no smell which I love. I will update the review if anything changes By:
I've been using this for almost two weeks in conjunction with cetaphil derma control and I am loving the results so far. The bottle is smaller than I thought it would be and the product seems to be going quickly. Will need to repurchase within a week or so. Has little to no smell which I love. I will update the review if anything changes.
Five Stars By:
My skin has gotten SO clear thanks to this
Shocked at results so soon By:
I’ve only been using it for a couple of days and already there’s a noticeable difference in my black heads and skin texture. Not only that, it doesn’t turn me red. Just be sure to use a moisturizer after letting it soak in. This stuff is great
Five Stars By:
It's great for acne. I apply it directly with my hands.
I tried using it everyday and my skin broke out but I switched to every other day and it's working great!! By:
My forehead bumps are goneeee!! I tried using it everyday and my skin broke out but I switched to every other day and it's working great!!!

Listen to the warning about staying on one spot too long. By:
This product definitely has power. We ordered it for my husband, who tends to have an oily nose. On the first use, I managed the tool for him and we clearly got results. Used setting 2. But pay attention to the warnings. The next day, my husband used it on his own and wound up with red streaks/bruising on the sides of his nostrils...just as they warned if not used properly. We've only used one of the probes so far, but are going to try the others over the next few days. Great product so far.
Start at low speed very powerful suction. By:
Excellent product, easy to use. Suction very powerful. Only downfall the instruction pamphlet needs more explanation on how to use each attachments. I had to YouTube to get a better understanding on how to use, since this was my first time using this. Other than that, PERFECT 👍😁
Great gizmo By:
I love this thing!! I would recommend trying out on your hand to get used to it. The dermabrasion tip works great to refine my skin. Just go easy and slow until you get used to it. I've seen a difference in my skin texture.
Missing parts By:
Didnt receive all the probes that were supposed to be included. I only have 3 when clearly it says 4. Once I contacted the company, they had no problem with expediting the missing pieces to me at no cost of my own. Once I received them, it was to my surprise that I not only received the missing pieces, but also a new remover. The customer service was amazing and the product works wonders!! I'm one very happy customer.
This thing sucks, in a good way By:
I have only used once but this absolutely sucks stuff out. I am afraid to go past level 3 with the large round tip because it’s so strong as is. I have large pores, oily skin and some fine lines. In one use, a few days later, I can see a difference in some larger pores not being as noticeable (on nose). I can see using twice a week going forward. Definitely need to steam your face first and definitely don’t want to hold on one spot too long. There is some getting use to the feel of it and the suction. I followed up with a good moisturizer. There are a TON of these kinds of products online. I had the hardest time deciding. But these few reviews looked legit and were positive and for the price point, thought I would try. How different can an $80+ one be?? I will update if anything negative occurs but so far, so good. There are little sponge replacements that come with the device. Maybe 5 or 6. No mention in the manual how often to replace these?? Guess you eyeball it. I saw you can buy replacements (generic) online so it would be nice to know the “recommended“ replacement schedule?? Just know if you use this long term you will be replacing these tiny sponges (that catch the excess face debis). They are cheap but will be needed eventually.
Love By:
Works great! If you have sensitive skin just be careful with the suction and alternate the days you use it. Overall, great product for the price
It works By:
Awesome ! It really works ! I was skeptical at first .., I was in the bathroom for an hour
